Sunday Dinner: Prupel

September 18, 2011

J.D. never fails to astound his dinner guests. Not always for the same reason.

This week for his Sunday Dinner assignment, J.D. decided to pay homage to his father who would often prepare monochromatic meals when it was his turn to cook. I.e. potatoes and cauliflower or kraft dinner and carrot sticks. You can see the inherent challenges.

J.D. chose purple and this was his menu:

-“Beets and stuff” salad.
-“kalamata cabbage surprise” served with blue corn tortilla chips.
– grape juice (which was not as purple as J.D. had hoped) and tonic water
-apple berry crisp (also not as purple as J.D. had hoped but rectified with blue food coloring)

With a menu like this one, J.D. decided to limit the guest list to in-house only. Annette (the flight nurse who took care of our house while we were Nighthawking) is nursing up here for a couple of weeks. As you can see, she wore her scrubs t0 dinner just in case. But thankfully everything turned out purplicious.

James says prupel instead of purple. It’s one of my favorite mispronunciations so I was quite pleased that it was the word of the day.

Beets and Stuff Salad 

-beets (roasted and chopped)
-carrot (grated)
-red onion (thinly sliced )
-diced chicken (sauteed with pepper)
-dijon mustard

(This is more a list of ingredients than it is a recipe. It’s all I could get out of him. It’s all he could get out of himself.)
