When Anne Stuart was born in 1665, she was never expected to be a queen. Neither was her older sister, Mary. They were the nieces of the deposed King Charles II and spent much of their childhood in France. Although their father was a Catholic, he raised his daughters as Protestants. Charles was returned to power, and then Ann’s father ascended to the throne as James II. Meanwhile, Mary married William of Orange and moved to Holland. When James was deposed for his Catholicism, Mary and William were sent for to reign over England. When they died without an heir, Anne and her husband George became the monarchs, on March 8, 1702. What did she achieve as Queen? Anne created the United Kingdom by putting Scotland under control of the Crown and, by working with a two-party Parliament, she became the more modern type of Queen that we have today. But what makes her ‘Good Queen Anne’ to me, was her welcoming of French Huguenots [Protestants] to England since their religion was outlawed in France. The DeTurk branch of my family were given financial assistance and helped to move to the English colony of New York. A family named deBenneville was ‘adopted’ by Anne, and she took a particular interest in their son George, advocating his advancement. He eventually moved to Pennsylvania and married into my mother’s family. Thus, due to Anne’s kindly and generous interventions, several branches of my family tree were preserved.

For Anne’s French childhood, we will enjoy a breakfast of French flavors. For dinner, a meal fit for a queen who enjoyed hunting at her Hampton Court palace.

Chicken Provincal Bake: 139 calories 5 g fat 2 g fiber 10.7 g protein 10.5 g carbs [9.8 g Complex] 47.5 mg Calcium  NB: The food values given above are for the egg bake and fruit only, not the optional beverages.  PB GF  What wonderful flavors! Based on the dinner of the same name. 

1 two-oz egg 2 Tbsp crushed tomatoes, slightly drained ½ anchovy, canned fillets, rinsed and chopped 1 Tbsp low-fat cottage cheese ¼ oz cooked chicken breast, minced thyme + rosemary + pinch red pepper flakes 2 oz strawberry Optional: blackish coffee [53 calories] or blackish tea or mocha cafe au lait [65 calories] or lemon in hot water   Optional: 5-6 oz fruit smoothie or berry-yogurt smoothie [88 calories]

Spritz an oven-proof dish with non-stick spray and set the toaster oven for 350 degrees F. Whisk together the first 6 ingredients [not the berries!] and pour into the dish. Bake for about 15 minutes while you plate the fruit and prepare your optional beverages. Great way to start the day.

Game Pie:  293 calories 8 g fat 4 g fiber 37 g protein 14 g carbs 62 mg Calcium  PB GF – if using a GF bread or omitting the bread  This is a real treat. Various game meats can be found at some markets or online. We had these bits and bobs in the freezer, remaining from previous meals. 

If you don’t have four different varieties of game, two types will do.

1½ oz quail or pheasant + ½ oz rabbit liver + 1 oz wild boar loin + 1½ oz turkey: domestic or wild, cubed ½ tsp Dijon mustard ½ oz cranberries 2 Tbsp rich broth of any sort 1 oz egg ½ oz onion, minced ½ oz peas pepper + salt + mace ¼ Arnold Multi-grain Sandwich-thin [½ of one slice] 1 oz carrot coins

Put the quail, liver, boar, mustard, cranberries, broth, and egg in the food processor and chop. Add water if it is dry. Remove to a bowl and add the turkey, onion, peas, and seasonings. Pat into an oven-safe dish that has been spritzed with non-stick spray. Nestle the sandwich-thin on top and bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Serve with the cooked carrots and a bit of mustard.
