Our in-town kids came for lunch-dinner on Sunday. We use the term to clarify exactly when the meal will be served. I grew up calling the evening meal supper. Dinner was on Sunday afternoons, after church. But some of our family have always called the evening meal dinner, and when invited for Sunday Dinner, didn't really know when to show up. Hence lunch-dinner.
Dessert inspiration came from the desire for a fruity taste, and the presence of whipping cream and Greek yogurt in the fridge. On Saturday night I made up two fruit sauces, one with blueberries, flavoured with vanilla, and the other with strawberries and raspberries, flavoured with a tiny bit of cinnamon. All the fruit came from the freezer, last summer's bounty.
On Sunday I whipped the cream with a little icing sugar and vanilla, then mixed it with an equal amount of plain Greek yogurt. I layered the cream and fruit into water goblets and sprinkled a little buttered nut crumble on top. I have to say, it was a pretty good dessert.
Last night, I put together my husband's lunch. He likes leftovers, so that's what I usually give him. Beef stew and some roasted butternut squash. Everything was in his lunch bag and he just added the ice pack in the morning.
When I arrived home from school this afternoon, I looked into the fridge. There was the container of beef stew and butternut squash. Hmmm. I wondered what he ate for lunch.
You might have guessed. Leftover strawberry sauce. It was in the same type of container as his leftovers lunch. He said he had a good chuckle when he opened it. And he found something else to eat, although he had a goodly amount of strawberry sauce, too.
* Just a note about the previous post - yes I sewed up those curtains myself. I really hate sewing curtains. All that measuring. Lining. Great wads of fabric on my sewing table. Boring straight seams. However, the results are worth it.
