A food re-shoot and Rice & Apple Casserole

Witamy! As it turns out, the book is too long and we need to cut out ten recipes…that will be tough because so many are big winners and absolute favorites. If we do more books in the series, then they’ll be put to good use.

We also need to change some of the photos, so we did another photo shoot this past weekend.  Matt and Dan, the photographer and food stylist, always come hungry, hoping to eat what they photograph.

 The Polish recipe of the day is a sweet dessert dish:

Rice and Apple Casserole 
Serves 4

2 cups cooked rice
2 cups peeled, shredded apples
1 tsp. cinnamon
4 tbsp. sugar
3/4 cup sour cream

Preheat the oven to 375

Arrange the rice and the apples in layers in a baking dish. Start and top with rice. Sprinkle each layer of apples with cinnamon and sugar, using only half the sugar. Cover and bake for 35 minutes.

Beat sour cream with the remaining sugar and serve in a separate bowl. It's nice to serve this dessert after a nourishing vegetable soup.

The Polish phrase for the day is:  kiedy bedzie obiad, pronounced almost the way it looks:  “kiedy bendjeh obiad,” and it mean’s “when is dinner?” Use this one wisely and be prepared for an often-heard response in our house:  “as soon as you set the table!”  This may be better than “where are you taking me tonight?”
