Sunday Dinner

A little lighter for the hotter weather but still satisfying.

Cold Sesame Noodles with Chicken
Store bought French Rolls
Raspberry Butter
Easy "Fluffy" Mousse

Cold Sesame Noodles with Chicken
Serves 4

6 T peanut butter
4 t warm water
2 t sesame oil
2 T soy sauce
1/2 t garlic powder
4 c cooked and cooled spaghetti noodles
2 c cooked and cubed chicken breast
1 c cooked and cooled snow peas

Mix peanut butter, water, sesame oil, soy sauce and garlic powder until well blended.
Pour over spaghetti, chicken and snow peas.
Toss well to coat.

Raspberry Butter
Makes about 1 1/2 c

1/2c. raspberry preserves (no seeds)
2T. honey
1c. butter softened

Mix all well and chill until firm.

Mound in a pretty dish and let sit at room temperature
until soft enough to spread.

Any berry (or other fruit) jam, jelly, preserve or spread works well for this.

Easy "Fluffy" Mousse
Serves 4-6

My kids like the "mousse" they serve at a typical buffet-style restaurant so I came up with this. It's NOT mousse in the traditional sense at all but is still good.

1 pkg (4 serving size) pudding mix (we almost always use chocolate)
1 c milk
1 c whipping cream

Pour milk and cream in a mixing bowl and sprinkle the pudding mix over it. Beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy-this takes several minutes-5-8 usually. Chill for an hour before serving.
