This is a great alternative to traditional potato salad and has been a hit at the gatherings where I have taken it.

There has been no newsletter for the past several days.  I went to Arizona to a family reunion.  It was a busy time and spent the time visiting.

When I read Lynn's recipe for potato pancakes it brought to mind the dish we had at Blueberry's on Sunday morn. It was called Redneck Benedict. Three potato pancakes, each topped with a poached egg and then covered with Hollandaise Sauce. It was too much for me so I enjoyed it again this morn. This was a benedict I hadn't had before.

Strawberries are appearing in the farmers market here in MO, so it's time for strawberry pie. Here is my favorite recipe.

Reduced Sugar Strawberry Pie

1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup cold water
1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free strawberry gelatin
4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Lite whipped topping
prepared graham cracker crust

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Place strawberries in a large bowl. Add gelatin mixture, gently toss to coat. Pour into crust. Refrigerate until set. Top with whipped topping.

We had some tonight after supper.

For Trish in Florida
The discussion here was to feed 300 people, and what size of serving to use for children thru athletes. The discussion about 300 gives only the totals, you can safely ignore that portion of the discussion.

Other locations say 1/4 cup is 2 ounces, others say 4 ounces. 4 ounces is about the size of a deck of cards. Therefore a !/4 cup would serve either a half deck, or a full deck equivalent.

Click here: Pulled Pork: how much to buy...

"Standard" amount depends on locale and more on service plan. People in the south tend to expect bigger pulled pork sandwiches. 3 oz is a small sandwich for a hamburger bun, 4 oz a generous one, 6 oz a larger bun or half of a 12" French roll, and generally 1 oz per inch of French roll. I suggest using ice-cream scoops to keep service size consistent -- declasse with anything else, but helpful with pulled pork. Since the choice is pulled pork, any questions about class have already been answered.

One-quarter pound of cooked meat per person is too small for an adult crowd, Cub-Scouts maybe. Budget at least 6 oz per head even for church ladies, and 8 oz for firemen and athletes. I think I'd go between 7.5 oz for a high school group. For Boston butt, figure about 30% - 35% waste, and for whole shoulders figure 40% - 45% depending on leanness and the way you trim. This is for meat which has not been "enhanced;" are neither generous portions, generous waste figures; but they are not stingy either.

FWIW, you can save a little weight on the meat if you serve cole-slaw in the sandwich, rather than along side.

Pulled-pork parfait is a popular barbecue menu item now. If the deal hasn't been fully negotiated, or even if it has, you might want to consider this service option. Best served in clear glass or plastic.

Finally, bread choice is very important and will partially determine the amount of meat eaten. I suggest a selection of top-quality rolls.

Good luck with your first big 'Q,

Want to say thanks to all the ladies that sent in the recipe of the Cake Flour. Hope all of you have a great day.

For Trish in FL:
1/4 lb. equals 4 ozs, which, if you’re planning a dinner or a party, is the serving size you should plan for each guest.

Hi Nancy and all Landers,
In the last Recipe letter there was a recipe for Peach Cobbler Cake - don't remember who sent it in but it called for a cube of butter. I've never heard butter called that and don't know how much it is. I would like to make this recipe so could the person who sent it in please clarify what a cube of butter is.
Dianne in Wisconsin

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
I have a question for all Landers - Does anyone know where I can buy Oreo Cookie Crumbs? I went online and they said Walmart carries them but I can't find any at our Super Walmart and they also said K-Mart carries them but no luck there either.
Dianne in Wisconsin

For Trish in FL: The approximate measure of a 1/4 pound of pulled pork would be 1/2 cup packed in a measuring cup.

The old adage of a pint's a pound the world around is not totally accurate if one gets very scientifically accurate, but in general it gives a fair idea of content.

This is for Marsha LA, who in the 6/1newsleter inquired as to whether I use black or green olives in the Italian Bean Salad recipe (5/29 newsletter). I You can use either; I use black as that is what most of the family likes best. You can even use a combination, if you like.

Spiced Honey-Glazed Sweet Potato Wedges

2-1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 5), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch wedges
1 /2 cup honey
1/2 stick unsalted butter
