8: Granny Orr | Granny
9: Chicken and Dumplings | 1 c. plain flour 1 t. shortening 1/2 t. salt Mix, add water slowly until thoroughly mixed. Put on waxed paper; add flour and knead until the dough is firm (kind of). Then roll thin, cut small pieces; add to boiling chicken broth. When done, add 1/3 c. sweet milk, put on lid, cut fire off. (This should use about a quart of broth.)
10: Me-Maw | Broccoli Casserole | Cook one cup raw rice. Drain if necessary. Cook 2 packages chopped broccoli until tender. Drain. Melt 1/2 stick margarine. Add 2 T. chopped onion; cook until tender. Add 1/2 c. evaporated milk, one 8 oz. jar (or less) Cheez Whiz (or Velveeta), and 1 can cream of chicken soup. Mix with rice and broccoli. Place in 325-350 degree oven until hot.
11: Fiesta Rice Casserole | Melt one stick of margarine or less. Saute: 1/2 c. chopped green onion one small bell pepper 1/2 c. diced celery Add: 1 can cream of chicken soup 1 can cream of celery soup 1 1/4 cans of water 1/2-1 can sliced water chestnuts 1 small jar pimento 1 1/2 c. raw rice Bake in covered 2-qt casserole at 300 degrees for one hour. This will probably take an hour and a half until rice is tender--and perhaps a little higher temperature. It makes so much that I've baked it only a few times, but it is good.
12: Chicken Spaghetti | Saute 1/2 chopped onion and 1 clove garlic in 2 T. butter. Add: 1 can cream of celery soup 1 can cream of chicken soup 2 c. milk 1 t. tobasco sauce 1/2-1 pound cubed Velveeta 1 quart cooked, chopped chicken. Add pepper, paprika and salt to taste. Heat just until the cheese melts, being careful not to let it stick or scorch. Then add 10 oz. cooked elbow spaghetti or regular spaghetti broken in smaller pieces. Pour into 2-qt casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, or until bubbling.
13: Shrimp Creole | 2 T. margarine 1/2 c. chopped onion 1/2 c. chopped green pepper 1/2 c. thinly sliced okra (opt.) 1 can (16-oz.) tomatoes with liquid 2 T. tomato paste 1 c. tomato juice Dash cayenne peper 1/2 t. salt 2 beef bouillon cubes 1 1/2 t. sugar 1 pound shrimp Saute onions, pepper and okra in margarine until onions are limp. Cut up tomatoes and add with liquid, paste, juice, cayenne pepper, salt, bouillon cubes and sugar; mix well. Simmer gently 8-10 min. Add shrimp; return to boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, about 8 min. more or until shrimp are just done.
14: Make a roux of about 2-3 T. oil and equal amount of flour. While browning, add 1/2 c. chopped onion, 1/4 c. chopped celery and chopped bell pepper, if desired. Cook until roux is quite brown and vegetables are soft. Add 1 1/2-2 c. water and one can tomato sauce. Cook 15-20 min.; then add peeled shrimp. Simmer 5-10 min. Serve with rice. | Shrimp Stew
15: Angel Biscuits | 1 pkg. yeast 1/4 c. warm water 2 1/2 c. flour 1/2 t. soda 1 t. baking powder 1 t. salt 2 T. sugar 1/2 c. shortening 1 c. buttermilk Dissolve the yeast in warm water; set aside. Mix the dry ingredients in the order given, cutting in the shortening. Stir in the buttermilk and yeast mixture. Blend thoroughly. Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead lightly. Roll out and cut with biscuit cutter and place in greased pan. (I brushed lightly with melted margarine, then folded one "half" over.) Let rise slightly before baking in 400 degree oven 12-15 min.
16: Bran Muffins | Pour 1 c. boiling water over 1/2 c. All-Bran. Set aside. Cream 1 1/4 c. sugar and 1 c. shortening well. (I use 1 stick margarine and 1/2 c. shortening.) Add 2 eggs; cream. Then add: 1 pint buttermilk 2 1/2 c. flour 2 1/2 t. soda 1 t. salt 2 c. Bran Flakes water/All Bran mixture In muffin tins, bake as many as needed at 400 degrees for about 15 min. Cover and refrigerate remainder. Can be used 10 days or more.
17: Mrs. "M's" Ice Box Rolls | 1 stick oleo, scant 1/2 c. sugar, 2 c. milk Bring these to boil and cool thoroughly. Add 1 pkg. yeast dissolved in a little lukewarm water (1/4 c.?) and enough flour to make a batter (2 1/2 - 3 c.?). Let this rise from 1 1/2-2 hours. Then add: 1 t. baking powder 1/2 t. soda 1 T. salt Work in well. Add enough flour to make stiff dough (it will "follow" the spoon around the bowl as you stir). Make into rolls and let rise 1 1/2-2 hrs, or place in refrigerator. (Roll to about 1/2" thickness, cut, brush tops with melted oleo, fold and let rise until about doubled in size.)
18: Pecan Tassies | Chocolate Chess Pie | 2 sticks oleo 2 3-oz. pkg. cream cheese 2 c. flour 4-5 drops yellow food coloring Soften oleo and cheese to room temperature. Mix both with food coloring until smooth. Add flour in fourths, blending well after each addition. Work into dough. Pinch off small pieces and shape into balls. Place one ball into cup of small (1 3/4 inch) muffin tins. With fingers (I wet mine in a cup of cold water.) press dough on bottom and sides of cups, lining them evenly. Fill before baking. | 1 9" unbaked pie crust 1/4 c. oleo 1 1/2 1-oz. squares unsweet chocolate 1 1/2 c. sugar 1 T. flour 1/2 c. undiluted evap. milk 2 eggs 1 t. vanilla Melt oleo and chocolate over low heat.

19: Combine 3 c. sugar and 6 c. water. Boil for 5 min. and cool. Mix as directed: 1 large can frozen orange juice (12 oz.) and 1 small can frozen lemonade (6 oz.). Combine juices with 46 oz. unsweetened pineapple juice. Add all juices to sweetened water. Divide into three equal parts and freeze. Thaw for 3 (?) hours to slush. Add 1 qt. Ginger Ale (or Sprite) to 1/2 gallon slush or 2 qt. to 1 gallon. | Yellow Punch

23: Lazy Day Pie | 1 c. flour 1 c. sugar 1/4 t. salt 1 t. baking powder 2/3 c. milk Melt 1/4 lb. margarine in pan. Add batter and top with 1 1/2 c. sweetened fruit. Bake 45 min. at 350 degrees.
24: Instant Russian Tea | 2 c. Tang 1/2 c. instant tea 1-2 c. sugar 1 t. ground cinnamon 1/2 t. ground clove Mix all ingredients thoroughly; store in tightly covered container. Use 2 heaping teaspoonfuls to 1 c. boiling water.
25: Strawberry Cake | 1 box white cake mix 1 c. oil 4 eggs, added one at a time 1 box strawberry jello (3 oz.) 1/2 c. milk 1 c. frozen strawberries (thawed) Bake in three layers for 25-30 min. at 350 degrees.

Sprinkle crumb mixture over apples, pour sauce over all. Cover with foil and bake for 45 min. at 375 degrees. Uncover and bake 20 min. longer, or until brown and crusty. * Sauce will be plenty for a 3 lb. bag of apples. I use Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith, McIntosh or any other good cooking apple. It can be made ahead and refrigerated, but will require longer cooking. Make sure apples are tender before uncovering--may take more than 45 min. Good but tedious!
29: Baked Ziti | 1 (1-lb.) package uncooked ziti 1 lb. hot (or sweet) turkey Italian sausage 1 c. chopped onion 2 garlic cloves 1 T. tomato paste 1/4 t. salt 1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper 2 (14.5-oz.) cans petite-diced tomatoes, undrained 1/4 c. chopped fresh basil cooking spray 1 c. shredded fresh Mozzarella cheese 1 c. grated fresh Parmesan cheese Cook pasta according to package directions.
