My sweet mother-in-law brought me two kilograms (close to 5 pounds) of dates when they were here at Christmas. (She shops at Costco.) So - do you have a great way that you like to use dates? Preferably not in a cake, although Queen Elizabeth cake is one of my favourite cakes in the world. I'm thinking that I should expand my date horizons. Something healthy that Phillip can take to school in his lunch - maybe a bar, square, snack ball, or something else entirely that I haven't thought of? Maybe a savoury use? I haven't searched for recipes yet; I know that you guys have some good ones. Thanks in advance!
Also, thanks so much for your concern about my sickly self! I'm feeling quite a bit better, and am still waiting to hear from the doctor. In the meantime I'm laying low and thinking about making all kinds of good stuff when I'm back to my usual self, hence the date plans. Have a good Tuesday!
