The lazy family’s way to feel fancy

Well, I’ve been neglecting this category, haven’t I?

Anyway, I have a new favorite thing.  I call it the “Going out somewhere nice is too much work with the kids, and we didn’t set up a babysitter or anything, but I still don’t feel like cooking an elaborate dinner, but let’s have something nice, okay?” dinner.  It’s vegetarian, which makes it healthy.  Yes.

  • 1 round of brie
  • 1 package of reduced fat crescent rolls in the can (I told you this was healthy)
  • Club crackers
  • sliced apples
  • grapes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 bottle dry white wine (we had this one, Angeline Sauvignon Blanc)

Preheat the oven to 350F.  Open up the crescent rolls into a big rectangle and wrap up the brie (leaving the rind on is okay).  Trim away any excess crescent roll dough.  Place it on a cookie sheet (either grease it a bit or put it on parchment paper).  Brush the brie with beaten egg.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.  Let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.  Serve with crackers, apples, grapes, and wine.

It is so easy.  It is a way to have a snacky dinner or late lunch and feel kind of indulgent without doing hardly any work.
