For Susie IN who wanted suggestions on cleaning and maintaining her shower door, once it is clean spray Rain X or a similar product on the door. Just be very careful to not spray it on the floor of the shower, as it will make it slick. You will need to reapply every few months, but will find it works on your shower door the way it does on car and truck windshields. To get the door clean consider using CLR; it has worked very well for us on hard water stains, rust stains and soap buildup. Good Luck and it is great to have you back sharing in the newsletter!

My hubby loves these wonderful cookies, and they are so easy to prepare with the help of Bisquick. An excellent cookie to have with a glass of milk.

Double Peanut Cookies Recipes

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup chopped peanuts
2 cup Bisquick baking mix

In large bowl, combine peanut butter, shortening, sugar and boiling water. Blend until smooth. Add peanuts and Bisquick; mix well. Drop by teaspoon onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 400 for 8 to 10 minutes, or until done.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

We've had family visiting here from Australia for the past week, so I have been busy, and not spending much time online, but I've been taking the time to at least read the newsletter when it comes in, as that has always been a bright spot in my day.

What a wonderful main dish this is served over buttered noodles, with a vegetable on the side.

Flemish Beef Stew Recipe

1-1/2 - 2 lbs. beef stew meat, cut in 1" cut in cubes
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
3 medium onions, sliced
4 tbsp. butter, divided
1 can or bottle (12 oz.) beer
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 bay leaf

Combine flour with salt and pepper and dredge beef with flour mixture, reserving the extra flour and set both aside. In skillet or Dutch oven, saute onions in 2 tbsp. butter until tender but not browned. Remove onions and sprinkle with reserved flour mixture; set aside. In remaining 2 tbsp. butter brown meat. Add onions, beer, garlic, thyme and bay leaf. Bring to a boil; Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1-1/2 to 2 hours until tender. Remove from bay leaf.

If thicker gravy is desired, remove meat and onions and cook down pot liquids. Serve over cooked noodles. 4 servings.

Hello to all Nancylanders: Need recipes for weight watchers meals. Would certainly appreciate any suggestions. One lady at the meeting said to bake frozen okra, not breaded, just plain, cut. I have baked at 400° for approx. 30 minutes. It's like eating peanuts. I really like it. Low calories and zero points. Line a small baking pan with aluminum foil, spread frozen, cut okra onto the pan, spray with olive oil spray. Bake. You can salt and pepper it before baking or after baking. Try it, you might like it.

Even those in the family who say they hate spinach like this dish. I have substituted chopped broccoli on the occasions that I don't have spinach on hand. I like making my own Italian seasoning mix, as the recipe I use does not have any salt in it.

This recipe came from the Laverne & Shirley show. It was originally made with pepperoni but my family likes it with Turkey better. If you wish to make it with pepperoni, simply replace turkey with 12 slices pepperoni. 4 slices get diced and put in the mixture and 8 slices are placed on top of the pizza. Oh, and if you make it Laverne's way . . . be sure to add lots of onions.

Cauliflower Turkey Pizza Recipe

1 head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
2 tablespoons light margarine
1/2 to 3/4 pound ground turkey, fried, drained, divided
1/2 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Spray 9-inch pie plate with vegetable spray.

In a soup pot, place cauliflower; fill with just enough water to cover cauliflower.

Over high heat, bring to a boil; cover and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain and return cauliflower to pot. Add margarine and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.

Reserve 1/2 cup cooked turkey and add remainder to cauliflower, along with 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, the oregano, salt, and pepper if desired.

Spread mixture in 9-inch pie plate. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese and reserved turkey.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until hot. Cut into wedges and serve.
