Home Comforts

Here are some easy-to-make nutritious foods I’ve enjoyed preparing during my home-bound time. These offerings are meatless. I feel fortunate to have had these ingredients available locally.

Easy Popovers in a regular muffin pan. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/7238/popovers/
Spaghetti and added “zucchini pasta” made with the spiralizer.
Easy no-yeast flat bread.

Beans and rice. Uncle Ben’s Quick-Cooking Rice with black beans, kidney beans and corn.
Vegetable lasagna made with green beans, carrots, celery and mozzarella.
Boiled polenta (cornmeal).
Power Puffs. Lots of protein, no cooking. https://www.lowfodmap.com/low-fodmap-power-poppers-recipe/
Fresh apple sauce made with local apples. Just the apples-no sugar added.
A welcoming and cheerful table can lift your spirits during these isolating times.

About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  5. Very lovely! I have been on an apple sauce kick lately. I’m using up some dried fruit, so I boil them first then add the apples. So delicious! I also add Chia seeds for some protein, and cinnamon. Now I need to check out your Power Puffs. 😊

    1. Thanks! Me too-the applesauce seems so soothing. The Power Puffs are really good too. I use almond butter instead of peanut butter, though.

      1. I, too, am an almost butter gal. And in a pinch I’ve taken almond butter and water, blend it in the blender, and you have almond milk! I read that somewhere. It actually works pretty good!
