Eleanor was born to be creative: her father was an author, her mother was an actor’s daughter. Eleanor was shy and frail, so she stayed in the attic and read books. When she was 22, she decided that she could write for a living — and she had to, since her father had died. She began with children’s books and poetry, and was successful from the start. Family and family memories influenced her work throughout her life. Eleanor collaborated with her brother-the- musician to write an operetta; with her brother-the-actor on four plays. World War I saw the death of friends, and a series of letters to a soldier on the front became her most popular book Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard. Poets and theater people were among her friends as Eleanor churned out 34 books. In her 1957 collection of poems and hymns, was a little thing she had penned in 1931. In 1971, it was sung by Cat Stevens and became an international hit. Have you guessed it yet? Morning Has Broken has leapt off the pages of hymnals as a popular song and a beloved hymn to nature. By the end of the 1950s, Farjeon had received three major awards for literature, two of which were created for the occasion. She died on June 5, 1965, secure in her legacy but unaware of the torrent of fame that her little hymn would bring.
Eleanor’s greatest hit evokes scenes of simplicity and comfort and pastoral peace. Our meals today are simple and comforting and derived from wholesome, natural ingredients.
Croissant & Fig: 186 calories 8 g fat 2 g fiber 5 g protein 23.5 g carbs 37.5 mg Calcuim PB Who would imagine that one could even think of a croissant on a Fast Day?!? How ’bout half a croissant with some figs enrobed in dried ham? Ooh-la-la! That is a good breakfast! Dear Husband loved the figs-and-ham combo. HINT: These ingredients serve 2 [two] people.
1 plain croissant weighing 2.5 oz 4 fresh figs or 4 dried Turkish figs [total weight = 2 oz/80 g] 0.7 oz Prosciutto Optional: blackish coffee [53 calories] or blackish tea or mocha cafe au lait [65 calories] or lemon in hot water
Hours before: soak dried figs in water until they are soft. [Not necessary if you have fresh figs.] Gently heat the croissant. Slice the Prosciutto into four lengthwise strips and wrap them around the figs. Cut the warm croissant in half cross-ways. Distribute the food on the plates and enjoy with a hot beverage.
Cheese Souffle: 293 calories 19.5 g fat 1.4 g fiber 20 g protein 9.5 g carbs 290.5 mg Calcium PB GF – if using GF flour in Béchamel Few foods are as amazing as a good souffle, which rises to airy heights of flavor. HINT: The recipe serves 2 [two] people.
2 egg yolks ½ cup Bechamel sauce, no cheese 2 egg whites 2 Tbsp chives/scallion green parts, snipped or sliced 2 oz Cheddar cheese, grated per serving: 1½ oz green beans
Separate the eggs, being very careful not to get any yolk in the whites. Whisk the yolks with the bechamel, then stir in the cheese and chives, along with salt & pepper to taste. Heat the oven to 400 F. Whip the egg whites until they are stiff. Combine a half cup of the whites with the egg yolk mixture and gently whisk together. Fold remaining egg whites into the yolk mixture and pour into a 1-quart oven-safe dish. [I like to use a 1-quart glass casserole with straight sides, which fits in the toaster oven.] Being as gentle as possible, pour the souffle mixture into the ungreased/unbuttered/unoiled baking dish and smooth out the top a bit. Bake for 25 minutes. Cook the beans. Serve the souffle by scooping it out onto the plates. Some like a soft souffle, which will sink rapidly. I prefer mine to be cooked through yet still be creamy on the inside. Either way, absolutely delicious!
