Thanks to Anna in Sweden: I enjoyed making the recipe 10 layer Crockpot Dish by Anna. I placed my crockpot in a sink, lined up ingredients on counter next to crockpot, and started layering. Fun!

I did add to seasonings: 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp NuNu Cajun Seasoning, a product of Youngsville, Louisiana. I also drained, rinsed, drained the corn and peas before adding to pot.

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!

Hi Nancy,
I have copd and am trying to lose some weight. My hubby was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. We use olive oil all the time now. One of the recipes I really liked I got off of facebook. It was 1 head of cauliflower that we cut the little heads of cauliflower off and coated with olive oil and I used a bit of onion and garlic along with some thyme and some pepparika. Threw them on a cookie sheet and baked in the oven at 375-400 for about 40 minutes. Half way through we turned them over. They were crispy and I dipped mine in ranch dressing. Nice little treat that the only fattening part was the dip.
You can use any seasoning you want and they turn out really good!!
