Filled Endives

I developed this recipe a number of years ago when I was looking for vegetable options for party finger foods and hors d’eurves. So many finger foods are heavy with lots of bread, cheese and meat. These are light and refreshing, and hold up well to sitting out. Nothing to wilt here. The citrus provides a sweet and tangy zing. The pomegranate seeds provide a tart burst. The celery and endive provide and nice crisp crunch. The cranberries provide a chewy sweetness. Finally the pistachios add a bit of umami and even more texture. Salad does not have to be boring and eaten with a fork.

Pot roast is such a great cold weather dish to make on the weekend.  Start it early in the day to let it cook low and slow.  Don’t rush it.  This cut of meat benefits from slow cooking.  You can even make it a day ahead and reheat it the next day.  We eat the leftovers all week long.

This is a great side dish.  It makes a lot and can be served hot or at room temperature.  It also keeps well in the refrigerator.  So make up a batch for a dinner party or to munch on all week.

Thursday Throwback – Chicken Pot Pie

Here’s a classic, hearty winter dish.  Perfect for using leftover chicken and other vegetables left in the refrigerator.  It makes a lot, so it’s also great to make early in the week.  Roast a chicken on Saturday, make the pot pie on Sunday, and you have lunch and/or dinner for a few days during the week.
