Father's Day Dinner fit for a King
It happens every year:
Mom's back in the kitchen looking at the disaster brought on by the day's cookfest: greasy pots and pans in the sink, food remnants on the counters and floors. It looks like the stove exploded all over the room!
It doesn't have to be that way, though. With a little helpful guidance from Mom, and some ideas from "Quick & Healthy Volume II: More help for people who say they don't have time to cook healthy meals," the kids can prepare a meal that's easy to make, tastes great and doesn't create kitchen calamity. Try Chicken Cordon Bleu, for example. This elegant sounding dish will satisfy any hungry man's appetite. Add a baked potato and a salad to keep the meal simple.
The best part is that there's little to clean. And it's so easy to prepare that the kids should have no problem adding their own cleanup to the cooking duties. Add easy Chocolate Cream Pie for dessert and dinner's complete.
Cooking with "Quick & Healthy II" also shows Dad you care enough to think about his health. All the recipes are low-fat, low in sugar and high in the taste department. Author and registered dietitian Brenda J. Ponichtera has developed the recipes in the cookbook to offer a healthful, but still simple and tasty way of eating.
