Last week the building site was clear. Then it snowed. Mom has to drive 5 hours tonight, to oversee the clearing of the house site, and we don't know what she is going to find. There could be 3 feet of snow on the meadow.
I hope that she remembers to eat. I have a feeling that she will just give in and eat cheese sandwiches at her cousin's house. (Her cousin is not a vegetarian. Oh, well, can't convert everyone, I suppose.)
At any rate, I put together some really fast things, in case she can borrow somebody's kitchen for short periods of time. She cleans up after herself, she really does.
These recipes are the fastest and easiest ones in my file. Since my Mom is running all over the place trying to get our summer home built and open for habitation, she has little time to eat, and I have little time to cook. Hence these speedy efforts, because we still get as hungry as a couple of bears. (She says that there are no bears in our woods, but I'm not all that sure.) Maybe she will just have a grilled cheese sandwich someplace. And maybe French fries. I have packed her Lactaid pills, and also the Immodium, in case the Lactaid doesn't work.
I am holding the fort at home here. I plan to eat normal vegetarian meals.
Crumble and slowly cook the "sausage" over medium heat in a skillet. Drain off any excess fat. Mix the cooked sausage with cream cheese. Add the chopped olives. Form the mixture into bite-size balls and roll in grated parmesan cheese. Serve on toothpicks.
