Grown-Up Kids’ Food


I had my monthly supper club the other night and was excited as usual!  How can you not be excited about getting together with a bunch of people who love to cook with a changing theme every month?  This month’s theme — grown-up versions of kids’ food (based on foods you loved — at least that was my addition to it).

It took me awhile to decide what to make because a lot of kids’ foods that I think of have dairy (aka cheese) and I have to nix those because of the darn lactose intolerance. So I did some personal outreach and mental recap of what I liked as a kid (and what others would eat since I grew up eating almost everything).  So what did I come up with — Caesar Salad.  Ahh, Caesar Salad.  Come on, how could that not be a kid food.  Ok, ok, I’ll stop now.

The recipe I use is from The Washington Post in the ’80s.  It’s scribbled down though now I have it pretty much memorized.  Simple basic ingredients, combine, shake, taste, dress romaine.  And, in the interim, toast some bread for croutons to throw in there.

Once at dinner, there was a great combo of other treats —

Chicken ‘lollipops’

There were also Chicken Fingers, Brownies and Wine (grape juice, right?).  It was Charles Krug Cab — DANG!

The plated look(a bit dark, I know):

As usual, the food and company were spectacular.  Look forward to meeting again.
