The meal began with a hearty entree of country-fried steak. Floured and egged cube steak was seasoned and fried to perfection. Flavorful homemade cream gravy made the steak all the more delectable. Served with homemade mashed potatoes and lovely green beans with sliced almonds and a strawberry glaze, this steak reminded us of the sunny Southern Sundays dinners we enjoyed in Georgia. My mom's homemade biscuits were an ideal accompaniment, especially with a drizzle of honey on them.
Dessert was a favorite of mine--blueberry muffins which have the distinction of being both a breakfast food, a dessert or a meal of their own. My mother's recipe includes a delicately crunchy cinnamon and sugar topping which goes so well with the hint of cinnamon she puts in the batter. Tender, flavorful and comforting!
Look for more "Treats of the Week" on Thursday and Friday!
