Here is a neat dish that is very easy to do. lou3-@webtv.net


1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
1 egg beaten
1 c evaporated milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 c shredded Swiss cheese
1 c (3 1/2 oz can) French fried onions
9 slices crisp bacon crumbled

Separate dough and press into an ungreased 9" pie pan. Press pieces
together to form a crust.

Combine egg, milk, salt and sauce. Stir in cheese.

Sprinkle half of onions over unbaked crust. Pour egg mixture into crust.
Sprinkle with bacon and remaining onions.

Bake 325F for 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Rich's Note:   TP Or Not TP

At least once a day I think about toilet paper. Susan has been buying
that super duper thick stuff that’s harder to fold than a phone book.
It’s so thick you could use it for sandwiches if you ran out of Wonder

When I was a supermarket manager, I was never eager to stock the TP
aisle because it was one of the dirtiest sections in the store, what
with all that paper dust all over the place. It used to be a colorful
aisle, though, with paper coming in pinks, blues, yellow, and (ugh)
green. I think there was even a beige at some point.

Scented TP faded away, so to speak, years ago; but I remember when the
makers of Glade came out with disposable TP dispenser rods that were
filled with tumbling scented pebbles. The spinning of the roll made the
pebbles tumble, which released varying scents. Guys thought this was a
great idea. Women turned up their noses.

And, lastly, I just wanted to comment on the size of the cardboard tube
at the center of each TP roll. My, how you’ve grown.

Apple and Raisin Slaw

1/2 cup light sour cream
3 TBL reduced fat mayonnaise
1 - 1/2 TBL white vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups unpeeled chopped Rome apples (about 1 medium)
1 cup golden raisins
1 (16 oz) pkg cabbage and carrot coleslaw

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Add apple, raisins and coleslaw pkg. Toss to combine.

I just made the last night from a recipe found in a hospital calendar of
events. It was very good. rambli-@yahoo.com

Shrimp Nacho Bites
Yield: 40-50 nacho bites
Prep Time: 20 minutes | Bake Time: 5 minutes

40-50 scoop-shaped tortilla chips
1 cup black beans
1 cup corn, fresh or frozen
40 pieces small frozen, deveined shrimp, thawed and tails removed
1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (or a combination)
1 avocado, sliced into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped

Arrange the tortilla chips on a baking stone or oven-safe baking dish.
Place a small amount of black beans and corn in the bottom of each scoop
(about 5 beans and corn kernels per scoop). Top with a piece of shrimp
and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Turn on your oven’s broiler and let it heat up for a few minutes. When
it’s ready, put the nacho bites in the oven and broil until the cheese
is completely melted and the chips start to look toasted, about 5
minutes. Keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn under the broiler!

Remove from the oven and top with a small slice of avocado, a dollop of
salsa, then a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of cilantro. If you
need to move them to a separate serving platter and they are still hot,
use a pair or tongs to gently transfer them. Serve warm.

Although I don't dislike them, beets are not one of my go-to vegetables.
My husband, on the other hand, loves them and recently brought some
fresh ones home with him from our local produce market. I decided to
roast the beets and they turned out great. kitty-@yahoo.com

Roasted Beets

4-5 medium beets, scrubbed, with stem end cut off
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tsp honey
1 tsp lime juice
lime zest (optional)
2 tsp dill

Preheat oven to 400F. Coat baking pan with cooking spray, add beets.
Roast beets for 35-45 minutes or until tender (test with fork). Remove
from oven and when beets have cooled enough to handle, cut into wedges.

Mix olive oil, vinegar, honey, lime juice and dill together and pour
over beets.

Lots of parties starting this time of year, and who doesn't love a
cheese ball you can spread on crackers/crusty bread? Lisa B.

crushed chips into cheese ball. Insert one small pickle into top of
cheese ball for "pumpkin" stem. Halve the black olives. Place one half
