Some Holiday Recipes

Turkey and dressing are the staple dishes for each family gathering of the Holiday Season. Traditionally, these are accompanied by sweet potato casserole, pecan pie, and more calorie-loaded dishes. This sweet potato-cranberry casserole is a healthier choice than the recipes calling for lots of butter and brown sugar. Toss a few marshmallows on each serving, if you must.

My favorite zuchini recipe is sauteed zuchini slices piled with slivers of heated ham and shredded cheddar cheese. A dollop of sour creme enhances the flavor. If you want a crispy crunch, serve on toast or toasted English muffin, which can be buttered--if you can use the calories.
Vegetable fritters are another favorite of mine. This basic cauliflower fritter is a bit different from mine. I use pancake mix, dried mashed potato mix, cornmeal, shredded cheese, maybe an egg, seasonings, water and chopped cauliflower or other vegetable (corn, zuchini, squash, whatever), with sometimes adding chopped almonds. I fry this in vegetable oil. It is delicious with a touch of sour cream or honey mustard. Ratios of dry ingredients are about equal, with slightly less cornmeal with about equal dry ingredients to vegetables. Pork seasoning is a good spice for this. Yep, I just throw it together and hope it is as good this time as it was last time. Goes great with bits of leftover meat.
