Dinner Plans Wednesday April 20th

Sitting here watching a ball game from the west coast I thought I'd start this thread.

Wednesday, our dinner will be ranch chicken served over rice with a veggie or salad.

That sounds great! Would you be willing to share your sticky toffee pudding recipe?

The weather forecast for today is sunny and 80 degrees so I'm planning burgers on the grill, coleslaw (made from my own cabbage), and beans.

Barbara,

I am not sure if this is the way it is done in GB but, this is the way it has always been done in my family.

Sticky Toffee Pudding
Preheat oven to 350 F
Butter a flat casserole dish (9 square)
Batter

1 cup AP flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 t baking powder
t salt
cup milk
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup chopped walnuts
Topping

2 cups water
1 cup light brown sugar
1 T butter

Put topping ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Mix first four batter ingredients in a bowl, mix in milk and add chopped dates and nuts.
Spread batter in greased baking dish, pour topping mixture over the batter and bake about 1 hour.
Eat warm with real whipped cream.
If you do not like dates use raisins or a couple of chopped tart apples.

Today is a snow day for my daughter. Her schoolbus didn't run, so I'll be going home to a hungry bunch. Last night was a feeding frenzy, so tonight will be something easier. I'm thinking Haddock in foil with a bruccetta topping, rice, and salad.

When I add sticky dried fruit to a recipe that has flour, I add it after the other dry ingredients have been mixed together, but before the liquid is added. Then I stir. It coats the sticky with flour and helps keep the fruit from sticking together.
