Gourmet Meals--Tuesday Menu

Breakfast: Nice to have something besides OJ. I've made the Poached Egg Supreme before.

Luncheon: The Cheese and Fruit Platter was what you would expect. Is was VERY nice to have something quick and filling. The chicken soup was some that I just took out of the freezer from a few weeks ago. This would be a great "to go" lunch for errand running or work. I have a couple of thermoses that work great at keeping the hot foods hot.

Dinner: More skewers. I don't have "real" skewers. I've been using chopsticks that I've collected from Chinese fast food. They work great! I used beef which was nice with the pineapple. I didn't make the dessert as we're finishing up the two gallons of ice cream from the party last week. Here's the recipe:

Coffee Delight (4 servings)

1/2 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. instant coffee
1/8 tsp. salt
1 med. egg, separated
7/8 cup water
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. ice-cold water
2 tbsp. non-fat dry milk

Mix gelatin, 1 tbsp. sugar, instant coffee and salt together thoroughly in the top of a double boiler. Beat together the egg yolk and the 7/8 cup water. Add to gelatin mixture and cook over boiling water, stirring constantly until gelatin is thoroughly dissolved, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat; add the vanilla. Chill to unbeaten egg-white consistency. Beat the egg white until stiff; beat in the the 2 tbsp. sugar. Fold in gelatin mixture. Beat the 2 tbsp. ice-cold water and the 2 tbsp. non-fat dry-milk solids together with a rotary beater until stiff and mixture stands in peaks. Fold into gelatin mixture. Turn into 4 sherbet glasses. Chill until firm.
