Recipes -beginning of the holiday foods.

I ran across this one and it could be fun for your children to do “for you”.

MASON JAR ICE CREAM

1 c. heavy cream, 1-1/2 T. sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, dash of salt

Pour all into Mason Jar and shake until cream thickens and almost doubles (about 5 minutes).  It should coat a wooden spoon.  Freeze for 3 hours or until hardened.  (I suggest loosening the lid before putting it in the freezer).

If you have several children, prepare two or three of the quart jars and between all of the children they can keep them shaking until they double in size.

 

This was supper one night last week.

CUBE STEAK with GRAVY

2 cans cream of mushroom soup, 1 envelope of onion soup mix, 3/4 c. water, 1 pkg. cube steaks.

Put all in crock pot.  Let it cook all day.  Serve with either mashed potatoes or rice.

 

TURKEY TETRAZZINI

1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 c. chicken broth, 1/2 c heavy cream, 2 c. diced cooked turkey,  2 c. broken UNCOOKED spaghetti noodles, 1 c. frozen peas, 1 c. shredded parmesan cheese, divided, 1/4 c. onion.

Stir all together carefully. (Including half of the parmesan cheese) Add to crock pot, and add the rest of the parmesan cheese.  Cook on low for 5 hours or until noodle are tender.

(Don’t buy turkey that you have to cook.  Go to the deli and ask them to slice you a slice of turkey that is about a half pound.  (Dice it and you are off and running). Serve with a nice tossed salad and garlic bread. I add cranberry sauce.  Nice.

 

My Stand-by dessert recipe.

1 large can of peaches and juice, 1 c each flour, sugar, milk (mix these three together).  Put peaches/juice in large baking dish, then pour the mixture over the peaches.  That’s it.  Bake.  A little dab of Cool Whip on top and it is glorious to the taste buds.

(I always spray all my pans with Pam before using.)

Happy beginning to the holiday season.  Marge
