Supper Spaghetti on Monday

16 Mar

Want a super easy dinner that all the family will enjoy?  This is the recipe for you.  You can alter it to suit your family’s tastes too.  I will say that if you want to feed a family of 4-6, you’ll want to double most of the ingredients and use a full box of spaghetti.  I didn’t double anything but the noodles and it really needed a little more to hold it together.  It was good, though, either way.

Supper Spaghetti

  • 3/4 cup condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp grated onion
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash pepper
  • 1.3 cups cooked spaghetti
  • 1 cup of peas (drained), cooked or canned
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
  • 2 TBSP diced pimento

Mix together; heat slowly (do not boil).  Serve with a salad of lettuce or other greens (or apple and celery salad).

As you can see, we added chicken to ours.  It’s not crab meat, although it looks like it!  It was a little thick, but was very good!  We also didn’t have peas in our the majority of eaters don’t really like them.

 

Grandma’s Notes: 3/12/93- Snowing; raining 32* at 7:50; didn’t snow much.  Packed and got ready to go to Frank’s.  Lance and Marcus came about 3:00; got to Frank’s about 7:30; went to S.S. and church at Shady Oaks with Frank’s family.  Left there about 3:30; home at 7:45; Marcus stayed in Bedford with them.  THANK YOU LORD THAT YOU HAVE NEVER LEFT ME.

 

Orange Prune Muffins

1 Mar

OK, so I did make these on the day it called for them, but I have been fighting a cold/flu from Hades! I finally began feeling better the day I attempted the cheese ball (BARF!) and the Secret Pie.  However, the last few days have been very reminiscent of my early months of pregnancy with the boy (NO, I am not preggers)…tired, tired, and tired.

Anyway, I did make a couple of things this week, I’m just now typing about them.

The baked-good of the week was a muffin that called for something that is really not in existence anymore: rice bran cereal. I did find out there is such thing as rice bran, just no cereal with that name.  So, I just crushed up some bran flakes and used those.  I found these to be pretty moist as the recipe also calls for orange juice.  This, by the way, is becoming one of my favorite ingredients with which to bake.  The local Winn-Dixie also had one of my other new favorites:

My new friend

For a family that only uses chopped prunes to cook with, this is a MUST.  I understand it’s probably more expensive per ounce, but I can guarantee we would not go through a regular package of prunes quickly enough.  These already come diced, which also saves time and sanity with a 17 month-old running between your legs.

When complete, they look like:

So I had them for breakfast a couple of days and a snack with hard-boiled eggs this day:

All-in-all they were a success…another recipe down!

Grandma’s Notes: 2/26/94- Anthony won a gold medal in Nacogdoches for a trumpet solo.  2/27/94- Marcus came showing his pretty red pickup.  Worked on quilt.  Lillian Mills drove Janey Watson & me to Marie Garvey’s (learning to play bridge); had a good time.  (They learned; played weekly for years).  HELP ME TO ALWAYS BE THANKFUL AND CHEERFUL.
