A Jeffersonian Recipe

Since it’s What I Ate Wednesday, here’s a quick and healthy recipe that’s perfect to take to a pot luck dinner like the Jeffersonian Dinner I attended last night.

These dinners stimulate thought provoking ideas around ways to improve the community, accompanied with good food of course.

I brought roasted broccoli as my dish.

I got the recipe here from Simply Scratch.

Preheat your oven toΒ 500 and bake the broccoli in olive oil, salt and pepper for 10 minutes. Add parmesan cheese and you’re good to go.

  5. Yum! This post has reignited my love for a cheese board. I saw a few beautiful ones at Crate and Barrel and it’s such a want, not a need, but I’m really lusting after it!

    Alex – For a potluck two easy recipes: Here’s an easy appetizer (an easy dessert follows):
    Easy, Easy and Delicious Stilton-Stuffed Dates

    12 Medjool dates
    2 ounces Stilton (or Blue) Cheese, crumbled
    6 pieces bacon

    Preheat oven to 375.

    Make a lengthwise cut in each date and gently remove the pit, forming a pocket.

    Fill each date with Β½ tsp cheese.

    Cut each piece of bacon in half by width. Take a strip of bacon and wrap it around each date, forming a slight overlap on the bottom (cut side up), and place on a rack within a sheet pan.

    Bake until bacon is crisp and cheese melts, about 25 minutes.

    Remove from oven. Place on a paper towel-lined plate.

    Allow to cool slightly and serve.

    Easy dessert:

    For an 8×8 or 9×13 – Improvise.

    Ice cream sandwiches (chocolate or vanilla) – bottom layer
    whipped cream (Cool Whip, Redi-Whip, whatever) – middle layer
    crushed candy/cookies/nuts – whatever you like – top layer

    Lay out on pan – 3 layers (or get fancy and have 6 layers) – Freeze all.

    You will never bring any home from your potluck!

    I often bring deviled-eggs to potlucks. Need any left over.

  14. YUM! Whenever I go to a party I always bring my infamous quinoa salad, its black beans, quinoa, tri color peppers, olive oil, cumin, lemon and lime very simple but VERY delish!
