Jan just had a temporary crown put in so she asked for one of her favorite comfort foods, rice pudding. As usual, I had to change something. Today, I decided to throw in some apple.

Jan’s Ethno Breakfast has come around again. For the last one I had made two dozen curried deviled eggs with chives. I did not want to make exactly the same thing again, so I thought I would make this batch Cajun. Cajun cuisine calls for “the holy trinity”—bell pepper, celery and onions.
Daughter Miriam is on a very restricted diet—no onions, garlic, or peppers (not even bell peppers). This has made creating my Sunday feasts a bit of a challenge. After a bit of negotiation, we settled on Chinese steamed chicken and pea sprouts for this week.
I am making a dinner with a lot of restrictions this week—no onions, garlic, bell peppers, “hot” spices—because daughter Miriam has been ill. I finally settled on making chicken satay lettuce wraps and I wanted a side starch dish for the carb-eaters. I had decided to use some coconut milk in the main dish, but this left me with most of a can of coconut milk left over. What to do with it?
Making a meal with a lot of restrictions is a challenge. I had decided on my main dish and a starchy side, but just a bit of lettuce did not seem enough green vegetables for this meal. Normally, my vegetable side would include lots of onions and garlic, but today these ingredients are out of bounds. What was I to do?
I am making Easter dinner and I decided to make latkes to go with my ham and salmon main dishes. I have more people attending this meal, so I have increased some of the ingredients from the last time I made these popular pancakes. I have also decided to add a touch of mustard seeds.
