RECIPES FOR A SNOWY DAY
Perhaps the best thing about foul weather (after getting to stay home when it’s really bad) is the food! But snow days often catch you unawares and unprepared and what’s in your pantry may just be basic. No worries, as long as the pantry is not empty there can be miracles. Check out these simple but delicious recipes:-
- White bean soup with herbs and bacon
This is a light broth with chunky Great Northern beans complemented with a sprinkling of bacon and herbs which will bring out the flavor.
- Spicy Spinach Dip
This is perfect for vegetarians. This involves a simple combination of spinach, cream cheese and mozzarella. If you like spicy foods, add some grounded pepper for a quick!
- Baked Macaroni with a combination of cheeses
Bow tie or spiral shaped macaroni makes a conducive environment for soaking up extra cheese. A combination or two or three cheeses gives the dish a beautiful texture and a decadent taste.
- Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken noodle soup is the ultimate and perhaps universal winter dish. To make this comfort food, all you need are fresh vegetables, chicken broth and some herbs bring the ingredients together and you have a taste of heaven.
- Maple or Sugar-coated Sweet Potatoes
Roasting sweet potatoes is easier and less energy consuming that boiling and then mashing them. Using a little melted brown sugar or maple sauce brings out the flavor of the dish. You can bare this with a helping of salmon to create a flu fighting mix that’s absolutely delicious.
