On a snowy day today I had some
ladies for lunch. I told them we
were doing knock off food today
because we had 2 things which are knock
offs from Applebee's and a knock off Chocolate Pie from what used to be
called Bishops Cafeteria back in the day.
The first thing we did was pray for the
Ukraine today and I ask you to do that
too as this is such a perilous time.
So here was my menu that I am sharing:
Oriental Chicken Salads with Honey Dressing
Spinach Artichoke Dip
Chocolate Cream Pie
I just got finished cutting the rest of the
pie and my husband and I agreed we
best send the 2 large leftover pieces
over to the neighbors as we will be
tempted beyond belief.
like yummy things like this:
Spinach Artichoke Dip which serves 6
1 10 Oz pkg frozen chopped spinach
cooked and drained, 1 pkg 8 oz cream cheese, 1 can 14 oz artichoke hearts, drained and chopped,, 1/2 cup mayo, 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese/1/2 tsp garlic salt
Combine all and bake 350 degrees till hot
Serve with warmed tortilla chips
Salad Recipe which I would say
is my version since I have
changed it so many times:
Slice very thin: 2 cups Napa Cabbage,
1 cup regular cabbage, Chop: 4 cups romaine, 3 cups leaf lettuce, 2/3 cup shredded carrots, 1 cup of sliced almonds
and 1 cup of Chinese noodles
Grill 2 large chicken breasts grilled first
and sliced into strips
Combine above but sprinkle almonds
and noodles on last on top and add
sliced grilled chicken
Here is the dressing which serves 8:
3/4 cup honey, 1/4 +2 Tb Rice Wine Vinegar, 1 cup mayo, 4 tsp dried mustard, 1/2 tsp sesame oil
Bishops Cafeteria Pie
Crust: 1 1/2 cups crushed cinnamon graham crackers mixed with 1/2 cup melted butter pressed on the bottom of a deep dish pie pan
bake about 5 minutes at 375 degrees
& now cool
1 quart quality vanilla ice cream soft,
2 cups heavy whipping cream, 2 pkg small chocolate instant pudding, 2 squares unsweetened chocolate melted
combine all above in a heavy duty mixer (such as kitchenaid) Add the melted chocolate last.
mix well and pour into pie shell.
Decorate the edge as desired by whipping
up 1 cup heavy whipping cream mixed on high with 1/3 cup of powdered sugar - mix until stiff I usually shave some chocolate
curls off and sprinkle but forgot this time
This is best refrigerated overnight.
A special thanks to Christian friends Rosemary, Judy and Jenni for letting
me take photos!
