Gwenerrella’s Larv-Egg Greenies Recipe

A lot of you already know our Gwenerrella, and her often un-childlike thought processes.  She also does not have a child’s taste in food as evidenced by some of her favourites.  She loves V-8 juice hot with cheese, Ginger Beer floats, and Dolmas.  Her mother doesn’t like the Dolmas, claiming they look like gory maggots; which only delights Gwenerrella and made her like them even more.  She now refers to them as her ‘Larv-Egg Greenies’ and delights in grossing out her entire family.  Her brothers are thrilled when she can divert their father’s anger by playing ‘see-food’ with her ‘Larv-Egg Greenies’.  ‘See-Food’ is nothing more than talking with your mouth full; in this case it is Grape leaves and rice filling.

We, Gwenerrella and myself, would love to hear of your gross-out recipes.  Whether it be edible faux vomit for a Halloween Party, or a disgusting dessert we would love to hear of your faves.

Original Recipe Yield 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 60 grape leaves, drained and rinsed
  • hot water as needed
  • 1 cup olive oil

Directions

1.       In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, sauté the rice, onion, dill, and mint for about 5 minutes, or until onion is soft. Pour in 1 quart of broth, reduce heat to low and simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until rice is almost cooked. Stir in 1/2 of lemon juice and remove from heat.

2.       Take one leaf, shiny side down, and place 1 teaspoon of the rice mixture at the bottom (stem) end of the leaf. Fold both sides of the leaf towards the centre, roll up from the broad bottom to the top, and place into a 4-quart pot. Repeat with all leaves, leaving no gaps as leaves are placed in pot (to prevent from opening while cooking). Sprinkle with remaining lemon juice and with olive oil.

3.       Pour chicken broth over all to cover grape leaves. Cover pot and simmer for about 1 hour (do not boil, because this will make the stuffing burst out of the leaves). Remove from heat, remove cover and let cool for 1/2 hour. Transfer to serving dish and serve.

FOOTNOTE

  • If using fresh grape leaves, plunge into a deep container of very hot water for about 10 seconds, to soften (don’t let the leaves lose their fresh green colour).

Our Gwenerrella has written her first poem.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Gwenerrella’s First Poem

 hpim1486a1.jpg

 I have a chocolate Penguin,

I got it from my Sis,

She gave it to me for

Christmas. 

I love my chocolate Penguin,

In its shiny paper tree,

It says his name is

Pee-Wee. 

I wanta keep my chocolate penguin,

He sits on top some books,

In spite of peoples hungry

Eating Looks. 

I’ve kept my chocolate penguin,

It’s almost Easter-time.

And now the Pee-Wee penguin,

Calls alla time. 

But now my chocolate penguin,

Has drawn an icky bug,

Tine for the ants to

Wake up.

 So I ate his face off.

Now I wonder…

One of the things was photographs… they’ve overflowed three photo albums, and now one of those zippered notebook critters that is supposed to hold all of your school stuff, supposed to…

Anywhooodlz, I ran across a photo and I am wondering; does anyone recognise this girl??
