CARROT HASHBROWNS MADE THE CORE WAY

2 or 3 carrots (grated)
some chives
some dehydrated onion flakes
some chopped parsley
salt
pepper (if desired)
2 slightly beaten eggs
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 cup water

1 teaspoon olive oil

i stirred all together except cornmeal/water. i nuked cornmeal/water for 2 minutes. then i stirred it in with other ingredients. next i formed the mixture into patties and fried in 1 teaspoon olive oil in an electric skillet that had been sprayed with butter flavored pam. i fried the patties @ 400* on both sides till browned.

dh likes this better than the polenta cornpones. they are thicker than the other and taste more "done."

ps: the original recipe called for a grated potato and 1/4 cup flour instead of the cornmeal/water mixture. i liked the new version just as well----and it's core!

i don't understand your question. are you wanting a dip or something to dip with?

a quick dip would be ranch mix and fat free sour cream.

dippers would be celery, broccoli, cauliflower, etc...

Default Core Italian Pasta Salad

I made this one up the other day. It turned out delicious! The amounts are approximate, so bear with me.

8 oz whole wheat angel hair pasta
a couple small tomatoes (or fewer large ones )
a green pepper
2 T. fresh basil
drizzle of olive oil
garlic salt
fat free Parmesan cheese (I admit, I used regular full fat Parmesan)

Boil the pasta till done, then drain and put in a large bowl. Chop tomatoes and green pepper into bite sized pieces and add to pasta. Shred basil; add. Mix well. Drizzle olive oil over mixture to taste. Add garlic salt and Parmesan cheese to taste. Mix well. Serves great hot or cold.
