Food Group Recipes

Submit your All About Me ideas!!

***********************************

MEAT AND MEAT ALTERNATES GROUP

Nutty Spread

1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
crackers

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spread the shredded coconut on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for about five minutes or until golden brown. Stir the peanut butter, chopped walnuts, and toasted, shredded coconut together in a large bowl. Use the mixture as a spread on crackers. (Makes about 1 1/2 cups)

***********************************

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES GROUP

Dog Fruit Sculpture

one or two lettuce leaves
one canned pear half
one canned prune
one raisin
one strawberry half
two canned mandarin orange sections

The above ingredients are for one dog fruit plate. Wash lettuce leaves and pat dry with a paper towel. Place on a small paper plate. Place the canned fruits on a paper towel to drain. Place the pear half cut-side down on the lettuce. With scissors, cut the prune in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Place one of the prune halves at the large end of the pear half to form the dog's ear. Make a tiny hole for the dog's eye and place the raisin in it. Place the strawberry half at the tip of the narrow end of the pear. This is the dog's nose. Set the mandarin orange sections along the rounded end of the pear half to make a collar. The kids will love making these nutritious snacks!!

***********************************

BREADS AND CEREALS GROUP

Designer Pancakes

1 egg
1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
powdered sugar or pancake syrup

Beat the egg with a hand mixer in a mixing bowl. Add flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Beat until smooth. Heat an electric griddle to 375 degrees. Grease the griddle lightly with additional vegetable oil. Using a teaspoon, spoon a small amount of batter onto the griddle to form simple designs: triangles, arrows, diamonds, hearts, etc. Space these designs widely apart. When the undersides of the designs have browned slightly, pour about 1/4 cup of batter over each design. Cook until the pancakes are puffy and dry around the edges. Turn with a spatula and cook until the undersides are golden. Remove the pancakes from the griddle and serve them with the designs showing. (the designs will be darker brown than the rest of the pancakes.) Serve with powdered sugar or pancake syrup. (makes about nine pancakes.)

***********************************

MILK AND MILK PRODUCT GROUP
Vitamin C Eggnog

6-oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate
2 cups milk
2 cups eggnog

Let orange juice thaw in a mixing bowl. Add the milk to the thawed juice. Beat until well blended. Stir in eggnog. (makes about eight 1/2 cup servings.)
