We had company over for dinner last night.
The weather was "iffy" so we ended up eating indoors instead of outside, but enjoyed our grilled steaks nonetheless.
The side dishes were fresh corn on the cob and a spinach salad with chunks of pear, sprinkled with feta cheese, topped with candied walnuts and dressed with balsamic vinaigrette.
I made some homemade bread as well, and had enough left to send home with the guests.
Dessert was the Hub's grandmother's homemade cobbler recipe.
Unfortunately, the Hubs is having to be more careful about what he eats, so I made some sugar free frozen yogurt for his dessert.
For the guests, I served some of the frozen yogurt on top of the warm cobbler.
I thought the slight tartness of the frozen yogurt with the sweetness of the cobbler was yummy!
The table was set "fancy/casual", a little mix of both.
Grandma's cobbler is one of those easy go-to recipes that can be made with many different fruits or berries.
Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of milk
choice of fruit
Cream butter and sugar.
Sift dry ingredients together and add to creamed mixture.
Add milk and mix lightly until all combined.
Pour into greased 9x13 pan.
Spoon desired fruit over batter.
Over all pour 1 cup of juice from the fruit or water.
Sprinkle with sugar to taste.
(depending on the fruit used you can also sprinkle with some cinnamon, which I do when using peaches)
Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
This made enough for our guests to take some home with them, (so I won't eat all of the leftovers!)
Well, it's almost Friday!
HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY to you
have a BLESSED weekend!
