The newsletter was not posted online yesterday due to lighning storms.  It takes longer to post the newsletter with the links to the separate recipes.  I attempted to get it done in time but did not.  Suddenlink has fixed my cable modem this time and it is working very well. It is wonderful to have tv and internet without it timing out or getting things garbled. 

Hi all. This came in handy on a game day.

1/2 bunch cilantro minced
1 tsp olive oil
3 TB fresh lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest

enough mayo to make it creamy

Boil peas drain and cool. In a bowl mash the peas well add the rest of ingredients one at a time and mix well after each one. Put into refrigerator. Take out about 1 hour before serving.

I serve this with fancy crackers and tortilla chips. It is a very old recipe. I was given this recipe from a old Lady about 60 years ago. I get a lot of requests to bring it and regular guacamole.

Apple Cheese Danishes Recipe

2 cups (500 mL) Granny Smith apples, diced and peeled
1/4 cup (60 mL) granulated sugar ( I use splenda)

2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
2 tsp (10 mL) cornstarch
1 pkg (250 g) 10% pressed cottage cheese ******

1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp (1 mL) vanilla
1 egg
1 pkg (450 g) frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/3 cup (75 mL) icing sugar
2 tsp (10 mL) milk

In saucepan over medium heat, cook apples, 2 tbsp of the sugar, the lemon juice, cinnamon and 1/3 cup water until apples are tender yet still retain their shape, 8 to 10 minutes.
Whisk cornstarch with 2 tbsp water; stir into apple mixture. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Let cool.

Meanwhile, stir together cottage cheese, egg yolk, vanilla and remaining sugar; set aside.

**** in the U S they call it dry cottage cheese (can be a bit hard to find), or line a colander with cheese cloth put cottage cheese in that and let it drain several hours
In small bowl, beat egg with 2 tsp water for egg wash; set aside.

On lightly floured surface and working with 1 sheet at a time, cut pastry into four squares.

Spoon rounded 1 tbsp of cheese mixture onto center of each square; using back of spoon, spread diagonally almost but not all the way to opposing corners. Repeat with apple mixture.

Brush edges of pastry lightly with egg wash. Fold uncovered corners inward over filling, overlapping at centr. Transfer to parchment paper–lined baking sheets; brush with egg wash. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or for up to 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Freeze on baking sheets. Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and freeze for up to 2 weeks; bake frozen, adding 6 to 8 minutes to cooking time.)

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in center of 425F (220C) oven until puffed and golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk icing sugar with milk until smooth; drizzle over danishes.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
