PAPA NORM'S STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE PARFAIT
When we visited our oldest daughter, her husband’s grandfather made this tasty dessert for family gatherings. It’s very low sugar and very easy to make on the road.
- Angel food cake
- 1 container (1-2 lbs) of fresh strawberries – or fruit of your choice (I used one pound)
- 2 tsp of sweetener (sugar or sugar substitute)
- 16 oz Cool Whip Lite
- Wash and cut the strawberries into bite-size pieces and place them in a container
- Sprinkle sweetener over the strawberries and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour
- Break apart the angel food cake into small chunks and use them to create a layer of cake pieces in a container
- Cover the cake pieces with a layer of Cool Whip
- Spread part of the strawberries over the Cool Whip
- Repeat the layers as necessary to use all the strawberries
- Mix with a mixing spoon until the ingredients are well mixed
- Serve – Can be refrigerated for a few days
POOR MAN'S LOBSTER
When we lived in Alaska seafood was plentiful and after a while we had to find different ways to cook it. We really enjoy eating halibut and our good friends shared this recipe with us to change up the taste!
- Cod or Halibut filets thawed if frozen
- 1/2 lemon or 1 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice
- 1 cup sugar
- Melted butter (for serving)
- Fill a large pot about 1/2 to 3/4 full of water and bring to a boil.
- Add in half a lemon, cut into 2 pieces and the sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
- Allow the mixture to come back to a boil for a couple minutes.
- Cut the fish into about 1-inch chunks and add to the boiling water. Do not stir!
- When the fish begin bobbing and float to the top, strain them out and set on a paper towel or wire rack.
- Dip in butter- serve warm.
- 1 lb ground beef (or meat of your choice)
- 1/2 onion chopped (I already had onion in my precooked ground beef)
- 24 oz jar of Pace Picante salsa
- 1/3 cup frozen corn
- 1 15 oz can of black beans (I used the three bean blend)
- 1 lb spaghetti noodles
- salt and pepper
