Well, Wednesday we had the last Lenten potluck of the year. As usual I was quickly trying to throw things together in between work and the service, and this time, both things I made were pretty green.
Recently I overheard someone at the potluck saying he likes to eat broccoli that’s been boiled until it’s rubbery and gray. That didn’t sound very appetizing, but it gave me an idea. I steamed a few heads of broccoli while half a dozen very small red potatoes baked in the oven at 500. The broccoli needs to be pretty tender, but should still be GREEN.
I needed to make extra sauce for mine, so I was back in the kitchen when everyone started eating. I didn’t even try to get a picture of everything, sorry. But…
Here is my plate. I didn’t even get to try my own salad, but I hear it was good. I did get a molasses cookie, some pasta with a pumpkin and sage sauce, and lots of fresh fruit. I’m not sure what exactly was in the black beans & corn, but it was really good! I also had a veggie soup, and that’s what that big chunk of bread went into.
So. That’s it for potlucks, I guess – tonight we’re having a Presanctified Liturgy, but afterwards we’re going to my favorite place….
