Two Pre-fast Recipes

Here are two pre-fast items that are both refreshing and delicious. Watermelon is terrific because it contains a lot of …water, and is hydrating and filling. I’m serving it in this Watermelon Gazpacho but also as dessert alongside these adorable Mason Jar S’mores. My kids still love Caramelized Onion and Boursin Cheese Pizza and I like Pan Seared Cod with Creamed Corn. I’ll serve a simple green salad with a light lemon vinaigrette alongside these filling dishes plus lots and lots of water. Finally, back by popular demand, What’s Best to Eat Before a Fast.

  1. when buying fresh basil from the farm or mint do you pre wash it or wash as you use it. how do i keep it fresh so that it will stay a while.

    • I wash it just before using it. I store the remaining herbs in a glass with water, stems in the water and place a zip lock bag pierced with a few holes over the top, and do not seal the bag. This keeps moisture in but allows the herbs to breathe. Alternatively, you can wrap them gently in a damp paper towel and put them in a moisture controlled vegetable drawer (most refrigerators have these today). They keep longer with the stems in the water, but both ways keep them fresh. Wash before using.
