I am finally back home with the kitties.  I have been in Arizona for the past 10 days.  I did mention in the last that I had been in Arizona but didn't say I was still there.  I don't mention when I am out of town because there is a chance my house could be robbed when it is known. I found out a few years ago that it is never a safe thing to tell others when you are leaving town.

The cats were soooo glad to see me.  Ditto greeted me when I came through the door.  Little One is still trying to punish me for leaving.  Last night when I was asleep he slept on the pillow next to me and could hear him snoring in my ear. When I woke up Little One was on the other side of the bed ignoring me. Today he is still ignoring me.. When I speak his name he acts like he doesn't hear me but did forget one time today when I called his name for a treat. LOL.

This isn't really a recipe but it is something I had to come up with for my brother. He has leukemia and it is hard to get him to eat. I grilled steaks on the grill and then for morning breakfast I heat the steaks up in butter and fry him two eggs in butter. He cleans the plate.

I need a recipe for Hot Dog and Hamburger Chili for a crowd of about 50 people. Can any
of your readers help me with this.
Thanks so much, Sue from N.C.

For Mary Green who asked about removing ink marks from a leather purse in the June 8th newsletter. My mother removed ink marks from purses with hair spray, even leather, as far back as I can remember. I would try it on the bottom or in a hidden area first just to be safe.
Laura in Southeast Texas

Mary Jane wanted to know how to clean blue ink from a Coach leather purse. I have had good luck using hair spray to remove ink from leather and clothing... I would recommend testing it first in the inside to make sure that it doesn't leave any residue.

Information similar to this message was sent in by Abby in Atlanta, Jan from Can(ada), Barb/De., Rosemarie in rural Kansas City, Terry, Hilton NY,

Hi Nancy, This message is for Mary Green Brook, NJ. She asked for a cleaner for her leather Coach purse that has ink stains on it. I am not sure my method will work since she has used other cleaners as she may have set the stain. But, it is worth a try. Use an alcohol wipe. My grandson wrote all over a leather chair in my doctor's office while I was discussing something. I was shocked to say the least but my doctor reached over and got an alcohol wipe and presto, all the ink was gone.
Linda in KY

This is for Mary Green Brook, NJ, Many years ago I discovered that Off, the bug repellant took off ballpoint pen ink. My toddler daughter managed to get a pen and write all over her body. Water and soap did not work. When I sprayed her with Off to protect her from misquotes, the ink ran off her body so I tried it on my purse which had some marks on it and it worked. I do not know if it would still work, try it on an inside spot to test it maybe?

If you are looking for something different to do with pasta, consider this recipe. Precise measurements are not needed. I have added green and red peppers, and mushrooms for additional flavor. I have also substituted sour cream or cream cheese for the ricotta, if serving to those who dislike ricotta or cottage cheese. A friend adds a 15/16 ounce undrained black or chili beans for a change of pace and to stretch the dish for her large family.

Mexican Pasta Casserole

(12 ounces) large pasta

1 pound ground chuck, turkey, chicken or sausage- can also use any combination of these meats

15 ounces ricotta cheese or cottage cheese
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese, divided
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro or parsley - optional

Mist 9 X 13 inch baking dish with non stick spray. Cook pasta according to package directions. In a large skillet brown meat and onion. Drain off grease and add to cooked pasta, as well as spaghetti sauce, picante sauce, ricotta cheese and half of the Mexican cheese. Spoon in to prepared baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 25 minutes. Remove from oven and top with the remaining 1 cup of Mexican cheese; return to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheeps is melted. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro or parsley, if desired.

I wanted to let Lou in AL. know that I made the Onion Ring Casserole this week, that was in an April newsletter and we really did like it so much, and know that I will definitely be making it again. I usually have to put my own "touch" to anything I make, so did add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce, black pepper and some garlic powder, to taste.
After it baked for the 30 minutes, I topped with the remaining French fried onion rings and extra shredded Cheddar cheese and continued to bake for 10 minutes more, uncovered.

Also from a February newsletter I made the Apple Cake Laura in Ct sent in, and we thought it was really delicious! I love the moist heavy texture of the cake, similar to a pound cake, and the apples and orange juice added wonderful flavor to it, drizzled with the thin orange glaze.

In the June 8th newsletter, the question was asked if a person could use another flavor of canned frosting in the Baked Cream Cheese Fudge, other than chocolate. Personally I have not used any other flavor, but I don't see why one couldn't, as long as it's the creamy variety and not the whipped frosting.

For Diane, who asked what a cube of butter is, it is 1 stick or 1/2 cup. I assumed many would respond with this answer, so I did not immediately respond to your inquiry.

Classic Spaghetti Bolognese

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 pounds ground beef
1 carrot, finely diced
1/2 onion, finely diced
2 ribs celery, finely diced
3 large cloves garlic, chopped
About 5 tablespoons (3 ounces) tomato paste
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dry white wine
1/4 cup veal stock or beef broth
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pound spaghetti, cooked to dente
Grated Parmigiano Reggiano, to taste

In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter with the oil over medium heat. Add the meat and brown, stirring frequently, 10 to 15 minutes, careful not to burn.

Using a slotted spoon, strain the meat from the pan, leaving the fat (it will seem like a lot of fat, but the fat will be absorbed into the sauce as it slowly cooks). Add the carrot, onion and celery to the pan, stirring until the vegetables are translucent and soft, about 15 minutes. Stir in the garlic.

Add the tomato paste and cook for 5 minutes to marry the flavors. Stir in the white wine and cook until the wine is reduced, about 5 minutes.

Stir the meat back into the pan along with the veal stock, thyme, 1 teaspoon salt and one-half teaspoon pepper, or to taste. Gently cook over low heat until the flavors are married, 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally. Serve with the spaghetti and grated
Parmigiano to taste.

Hi all Landers:
I made this salad this weekend, hadn't had it for awhile and was something different but good for a change. I call it --

Vegetable Salad

1 can sweet and sour vegetables (in the bean section)
1 can green or yellow beans, drained
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can black beans, drained
Bottled balsamic dressing

This is such a forgiving salad, add whatever you like (onions, garlic)and whatever beans you like. Pour dressing over and let marinate.

Thank you, Bren in Louisianna, for the chicken with lemon curd recipe. I haven't made the lemon curd yet, but when I do I'll surely make this recipe.
