Memorial Day weekend

We had a full weekend of great food...

Prosciutto-Wrapped Tilapia (recipe from Everyday Food) - Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Season tilapia or cod with s&p. Wrap 1 slice prosciutto around each filet; drizzle with EVOO, and place seam side down, onto baking sheet. Broil until prosciutto is browned and fish is opaque throughout, 8-12 minutes.

Harvard Beets (recipe from Mom) - a warm, thick version of pickled beets. Remove the tops and boil them until tender, approx 30 minutes. Then slip off the skins (might want to wear rubber gloves since this will stain your hands). Slice or wedge into smaller pieces. Mix 1 tab cornstarch into 2 tablespoons sugar, and whisk into 2 tablespoons boiling water and 1 tablespoon vinegar. Bring to boil to thicken, add more sugar or vinegar to taste.

Whole Wheat Bread French Toast with Pure Maple Syrup and Fresh Strawberries

My favorite Turkey Meatloaf, Mac-n-Cheese with whole wheat penne, and Roasted Summer Squash and Bell Peppers. Drizzle with EVOO, s&p, and baked at 425 degrees for approx 15-20 minutes.

A little ooey-gooey goodness!!
