Thanks Robbie IN for the info on how to improve the taste of creamed corn. I’ll give the suggestions a try and see what my husband thinks. No doubt he’d like the bacon addition. I had always loved bacon up until one Easter when I sort of overindulged. We have the whole family here for breakfast and an egg hunt for the kids. As I was cooking the 4 or 5 pounds of
bacon I was heavily sampling too. That was about 4 years ago and even though I still like the smell I don’t care if I ever have any more of it. I wonder if that method would work with
French fries!

I love foil packet recipes and am eager to try the "Foil Packet Southern Chicken Dinner" recipe that Robbie in In. sent in the July 26th newsletter. What are the amounts you use
for the rice and water? Keep those packet recipes coming. Thanks in advance for your answer.

More for Paul in NC.
& for Jackie, your smaller size recipes are welcome & the easier the better, thanks. Like that Texas gal, I can't stand long enough to make long recipes anymore either, so the quickies
are appreciated.

"Pickle" Zucchini Bake

For each serving needed, layer into a buttered baking dish in order given:
1 medium-small zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 8 narrow slices like pickles
1 tomato sliced 1/4" to 1/2" thick
1 - 2 T. snipped parsley or a sprinkle of dried
1 small onion, slivered into thin rings or half-rings
2 or 3 processed cheese slices or Valveeta, something that melts fast & well
Dusting of seasoned pepper or garlic pepper
3 slices 40% less fat bacon, cut in halves or thirds

A loaf pan will serve up to 2, or use an 8" x 8" to serve 3 or 4; can be increased in a bigger
pan. Bake at 375º for 30 - 40 minutes, uncovered, till bacon is completely browned.

Hashed Peppers....OR....Hashed Mashed Peppers

Hashed Peppers:
Cut green bell peppers in half lengthwise, clean out, & fill with corned beef hash. Put a dollop of American chili sauce or catsup on top; add an olive half if you like, &/or top with shredded cheese for the last 10 minutes of cooking; bake at 350º for 45 to 60 minutes in a sprayed pan.

Hashed Mashed Peppers:
Make green bells as above. When they are in the pan, prepare red bells the same way. Mix left-over mashed potatoes with a tiny bit of minced garlic & beat in sour cream to a soft but
spoonable consistency; fill pepper halves. Slice a scallion over each half & place in pan with hash filled halves. Definitely top with shredded cheese for the last 10 minutes of cooking time while baking as above.

With a salad or an easy vegetable this is a complete meal. Idea from Shirl from Maine via Nancy's Kitchen.

Romanian chicken kebabs or frigarui
Frigarui is also made with pork or beef and sometimes bacon skewered with onions, peppers, tomatoes, and mushrooms and then grilled. It is a popular Romanian street food.

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
1 ounce mixed chopped herbs (thyme, rosemary, parsley)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 cloves crushed garlic
3 ounces plain yogurt

In a plastic zip-top bag, combine herbs, pepper, lemon juice, sugar, ginger, garlic and yogurt. Add chicken cubes, covering all the pieces with marinade, and refrigerate overnight
or at least three hours.

Heat grill. Thread chicken pieces on skewers that have been soaked in water for about an hour so they don't catch fire on the grill. Grill chicken kebabs on greased grates about 10-15
minutes or until done. These can also be prepared on an indoor grill, broiler or oven.

Hi Nancy, what a wonderful newsletter today. All are good but today's is exceptional.
Thank you!!

Thank you, Jackie, for the great recipes for two and YES!!, please share more. I do have a couple questions though. For the Salmon Loaf, combine liquid and milk to make a total of how much? And on the Orange Glazed Chicken, should there be more to the recipe?

Remember some time back griping about Kraft changing recipe for Miracle Whip and I was one of those. Anyway, made me a similar clone by taking small jar of Hellman's Mayonnaise and whisking 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar and one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.

Hi everyone: I have not been able to "Send" recipes for quite some time now. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?? I will "Send" a recipe and the response comes up that the recipe has been "Sent" but it never arrives to its destination! I like to "Send" recipes to my sister or to my own account and then put them in a Folder, but have not been able to do so for about 3-4 months now. Just wondering if it's me, or if anyone else has this problem??
