Museum seeks recipes for cookbook

In preparing for our upcoming 2017 exhibit, HOST NATION HOSPITALITY, we are asking you to contribute a favorite recipe to the accompanying cookbook. We’d like a little story about the recipe ( where you learned to make it, what significance it has, if it’s something you learned to make overseas, etc.) and your connection to the military or DOD family.

An example might be about the German butcher’s wife who took you into the back of the shop to show you how to pound the wiener schnitzel thin, or your neighbor in Japan showing you how to make a local dish. Or…your grandmother’s black-eyed peas salad you recreated, no matter where you were stationed.

Your recipe may be on one of the recipe cards we plan to give away to exhibit visitors and/or included in the cookbook we will sell to support our programs in our museum.

We appreciate your support of the museum and helping us preserve your history…

Currently, we looking for soups, apps and salads and would like submissions to be e-mailed to: militaryfamilymuseum@comcast.net.

Please put recipe in subject line

    I have 2 soups for you if you care to chose one….
    A hot soup – Quick Greek Egg-Lemon Soup
    3 cups boiling chicken broth [or 3 bouillon cubes for 3 cups boiling water]
    add 1/2 cup uncooked rice
    in small bowl, best eggs with 2 Tbsp of lemon juice and 2 Tbsp of lemon rind
    Gradually drizzle the egg mixture into the soup

    For a cold soup, very refreshing on hot days….
    Cold Cucumber Soup
    3 cukes – peel, split, remove seeds & mince
    add cuke to 1 minced onion and saute till soft
    add 3 Tbsp of flour
    add 2 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1 tsp dill weed, 2 tsp lemon juice, pepper and 2 cups of cream
    put all this through a food processor or use an electric mixer and chill

    I usually substitute the coffee mate found in the grocer’s freezer instead of cream – less calories and no cholesterol.

    Oops, just noticed I was supposed to email this. Can you just copy and paste it? My apologies.
