This piece will lovingly be referred to as


Sugah You Can Do It!


Because YOU CAN!


In the spirit of St Patrick's Day let's make

HOT SLAW
(not spicy, unless you want it to be. The hot refers to it being warm)

(from Mother's handwritten cookbook again)

Our shopping list:

1 large onion
1 green bell pepper
1 head of cabbage cut up or two bags of pre-washed shredded cabbage

1 large can of stewed tomatoes
1/4 tsp of Tabasco (or other hot sauce)
1/4 cup of white vinegar
salt & Pepper to taste
1 package of link sausage (cut into bite size pieces)


In Bacon grease (either fry 2 pieces of bacon and save the grease or as most southern belle's have a container in the fridge grab you a spoonful) To that add chopped bell pepper, onion and cabbage
Stir well until cabbage turns a brighter green.

Add the other ingredients ( tomato; s&p; Tabasco; vinegar; sausage)
simmer covered for about 45 minutes



Serve warm!
We always add extra hot sauce to our own bowls


For dessert

Grasshopper pie?


Ingredients

25 chocolate sandwich cookies

1/2 cup butter, melted

2 cups marshmallow creme

1/4 cup creme de menthe liqueur

2 cups whipping cream


  1. Crush cookies and set aside 1/4 cup of crumbs. Place remaining crumbs in a medium bowl and mix in melted butter. Press mixture firmly into bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan or pie plate.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whip together marshmallow creme and creme de menthe until smooth. In a separate bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form, then fold into marshmallow mixture. Pour mixture into pan and sprinkle reserved cookie crumbs on top. Freeze at least 2 hours, until firm. Remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving to soften slightly.

I hope you enjoy!!
I look forward to getting to know all of you and remember
