Several recipes have not been posted yet in the newsletter.  I saved them in a safe place to post in the next newsletter.  It is so safe that even I can not find them.  Hopefully I can find them and post them in tomorrow's newsletter. 

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Yummy looking newsletter today lol. I have a question for all our
Nancylanders. I have a recipe that calls for grained mustard. Never heard of it. Could someone please tell me what it is.
Dianne in Wisconsin

Nancy, we have Yahoo and they have changed how we can e-mail you. Just wanted to give you a heads up in case anyone else is having the same problem that we are. I can't use the 2 pages that you list in the newsletters. I am sorry but we are having our home worked to sell to move to a condo either here in Indy, West part of Ohio, upper half Northern Kentucky, Eastern part of Illinois, or Southern half of Michigan. So I will not be on the computer every day now until we get the house sold. So far we had put on our porch a cement cap fixing some cracks in the driveway and the outside painted before the weather turned cooler. Now we are getting the inside done like taking up the carpet replacing it, painting, replacing all the interior doors to 6 panel doors, removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room and putting wood floors in the dining and living room. Ten years ago we put down wood floors in the main hall way, kitchen, half bath, family room and I have never had floor so easy to take care of. So you can see that we are busy around here.

We had this soup a week or so and it was so good and different. It my not sound good to some people but we liked it. It came from Taste of Home web site. This was our main part of dinner with crackers sliced meat ad cheeses.

Cheeseburger Broccoli Chowder Recipe

½ pound ground turkey or beef
½ cup chopped onion
¼ teaspoon chopped green pepper
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup, undiluted*
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup chopped broccoli
1 to 2 potatoes, peeled and diced, I forget these but I would use red skinned potatoes

* If you can't or shouldn't have the soup then make a very thick white sauce with cheese in it and that should help to reduce the calories.
In a large saucepan, cook beef with onion and green pepper until the beef is no longer pink; drain. Stir in soup, milk and Worcestershire sauce. Add broccoli and potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Yields 4 serving but for us just 2 servings. Yes I'll make this again and try hard to remember the potatoes.

This is an old recipe that I made back in the 70's and 80's but with the kids and grandkids gone it is to much for us. But I am hungry for it. I will make this for Sunday and make it on Saturday so it can sit. I never have time to make anything like dessert on Sunday any more.

Old Fashioned Fruit Cocktail Cake Recipe

1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1¼ cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can, 2 cups, fruit cocktail, I use the light stuff, canned in juice
½ cup brown sugar or Splenda, optional
½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans, optional

Beat sugar, egg and dry ingredients. Add vanilla. Fold in can of fruit, juice and all. Spread in a greased 9x9 pan. If desired (and you can handle more sugar!), combine brown sugar and nuts and sprinkle over cake batter. Bake at 325º for 60 minutes.

Everyone have a great day. Nancy and 4 legged associates stay safe and warm.

This may be the old recipe that Barbara is remembering from her college days. there are many versions of this recipe. You did not mention the pineapple in your request, so you could try leaving it out, but you might need to adjust the amount of liquid you use, if you do that. Maybe other readers will read this and have a recipe that does not include the pineapple

There was no newsletter sent out yesterday.  I internet had a problem.  I am sending out the newsletter today instead, on my day off.

There was an error in this post.  I am posting it again.
Request: Every year I ask for a recipe for Christmas bread that is baked close to Charleston, S. C. in hopes that somebody may know the bread to which I am referring. It is delicious toasted. It is not the traditional Xmas bread like Stollen
Thanks! Athena in DE=

A friend gave me this recipe when I lived in Florida 45 years ago. I still make it often and family and friends love it.

Linguini with White Clam Sauce Recipe
4 to 6 Servings

1 (12 or 16 oz.) package linguini, cooked and drained (1 cup water reserved)

Clam Sauce:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 tablespoons parsley flakes, crushed slightly
4 cloves garlic, minced or mashed
1/4 teaspoon each, salt and pepper
1 large pinch of oregano flakes, crushed slightly
2 small cans minced calms, drained, juice reserved
2 bottles clam juice*
1/2 to 1-cup water (I use the pasta water)

While cooking pasta, heat oil and butter in a large skillet. Add garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and oregano. Lower heat and add the reserved clam juice, the 2 bottles of clam juice and pasta water. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the clams. Do not over cook, or clams will be tough (Heat just long enough for the clams to be hot). Add to cooked and drained pasta. Toss and serve at once.

* NOTE: The bottled clam juice will have sediment in the bottom do not let that go into the skillet. It may have some sand in it. I have had that happen.

I’m hoping one of the members can help me. I saw a recipe for rotisserie chicken done in the crockpot with four balls of foil under the chicken. I don’t remember where I saw it if it was a magazine or newspaper. I would love to find that recipe. Has anyone heard of it? Thanks for any help you can be . Next time I see a recipe I like I will cut out and save. Thanks for any help, Billye F in LaVista, Ne

Go to: rotisserie chicken done in the crockpot - AOL Search Results and you will find several recipes to make your rotisserie chicken.
