Easter Menu

We are having another family Isabel & I are friends with over for Easter lunch. Andy hasn't met them yet. They are not from around here, so I thought it would be nice to have them over.

Anyways, I don't want to make a big ham because we would be eating ham for weeks if I did. And one of our guests in a vegetarian. So, I think I am just going to buy a large ham steak. I see no need to go overboard.

They will be bringing a fruit salad, bread, & wine.

I am making:
Ginger Carrot Cake
Lentil Cabbage Salad
Green Beans with Toasted Almonds
Parslied Potatoes
Apple Topped Ham Steak

Hopefully it is a very yummy meal.

Weight Watchers Pumpkin Apple Bread

I took a recipe out of a Weight Watchers Cookbook and changed it to make it more WW friendly. It is baking right now, so, we'll soon see how good my changes were. Here it is:

Pumpkin Apple Bread

2 C whole wheat flour
1/4 C + 1 T Splenda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 C egg substitute
1 C skin milk
1 med. apple, cored & chopped in food processor
1 C canned pumpkin puree
1 T instant oatmeal

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees and spray 9x5 loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients through ginger.
In a small bowl, beat together egg, milk, apple, and pumpkin.
Add egg mixture to flour mixture & mix just until blended.
Spoon into prepared pan, sprinkle oats on top, and bake for 1-1.25 hours.
Cool for 10 minutes & serve. Makes 10 servings.
