Sunday lunch

We had an amazing feast for our Sunday lunch. We bought some [more] cook books yesterday (I think I got over 10,000-15,000 recipes now) and we tried two of them today.

For the main plate we had a lasagna-like recipe that consists of chunks of cooked turkey and ricotta but no tomato sauce. You spread the mix in the lasagna pasta and then you roll each one. Then, you prepare a mustard-based besamel with swiss cheese and you spread on top. Then, you bake for 30 minutes. My JBQ loved it.

For desert, I prepared some sweet crepes with a special sauce that’s made of brown sugar, orange juice, pineapple and orange chunks. At the top you sprinkle almonds and coconut threads. JBQ said that this was the best dessert he had for a long time. :)

My mom makes caneloni like these, but she uses spinaches belong the chicken (or turkey) and the ricotta to keep it wet during cooking.

Also she doesn’t use lasagna paste for the caneloni rolls, instead she uses very thin pancakes:

Mix 400gr. flour XXXX or so – 4 cups milk – 2 eggs – little salt.

In a Hot! frying pan almost without butter, put 1 large spoon of mix, swing it to fill the pan to make its round and turn to the other side in seconds.

They don’t need grease, throw the first pancake as it carries too much.

Fill the rolls, put in two levels inside a try.

Cover with white sauce: Put 1/2 spoon of flour in a 1/2 cup of hot milk at low-med heat, stir with a wooden spoon until it thickens (with no lumps). Melt Chesse as you like.

Bake about 40-45min, while adding tomato sauce around the borders of the try to keep it wet. These caneloni can suck all the sauce you can put!
If you don’t like onion, just use garlic to make the tomato sauce (rajú).

It’s a light and tender sucessfull caneloni.
It’s very rich.

This is the admin speaking...

I don’t remember ever saying that we both were dieting. I dieted during the Summer and that’s it.
