RECIPES FOR FEBRUARY 23
Recipes for February 23 for a loved one
Initially, this day was … women’s. Ladies who defended the independence of the fair sex and equal rights with men, have achieved the receipt of "their" day. But that was a long time ago – after the transition to the Gregorian calendar in 1918, Women’s Day was moved to March 8, and February 23 was declared Red Army Day, later Soviet Army Day, and then Defender of the Fatherland Day.
Despite the fact that the scale of the celebration of this date is inferior to the scale of the celebrations held on March 8, no one thought to forget about their beloved men – the defenders are congratulated, presented with gifts and have a festive dinner. We have prepared our own version of the menu, which can please the strong half of the family.
We will cook krill salad, fried sturgeon back, fried potatoes with prunes, rice dessert with dried fruits, persimmon salad, as well as citrus – a strong drink with a pleasant exotic taste.
