No newsletter was sent out on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Lubbock had thunderstorms most of the day and night. I unplug my computer from the wall and unhook it from the cable modem during a thunderstorm. Recently I lost 3 TVs. a microwave, and 2 computers due to a lightning. I learned my lesson. Unplug the computer from the wall and unhook from the modem.

I spent the last evening huddled up next to the two shaking kitties. They were hiding under the blanket and expected me to be there with them.

Quantity to Buy

When buying a ham, estimate the size needed according to the number of servings the type of ham should yield:

1/4 - 1/3 lb. per serving of boneless ham
1/3 - 1/2 lb. of meat per serving of bone-in ham

The recipe for oyster fritters has disappeared from my recipes to post. I would say the kitties did it but they don't like oysters. When I find the recipe I will post it online.

Both Little One and Ditto are looking forward to Easter. They both love a little ham. I usually sharea small amount and they love it. Most of the time both cats think most people food is not good. One time I had some sausage on the table to eat when the phone rang. Ditto's way of telling me it didn't appeal to him was to put a napkin over the sausage. Little One's way of showing his food dislike is to dump the dish upside down. Both cats love a small amount of ham and I will share a little.

The last week in April I plan to take time off of the newsletter to spend time with my family. Several family members from Arizona and Oregon are visiting and I need to spend time with them.

Greetings from Australia to Nancy, furbabies and recipe pals, I would love a recipe for making tomato soup, I have tried many but none to my liking.
Elizabeth, Bendigo, Australia

This is a recipe I used to make a lot, but haven't made in a few years. It came from one of my sisters-in-law before she drowned in a flash flood. Her granddaughters are looking for some of her recipes, and this is the only one I've located so far. They would like one in her handwriting, but we haven't found one yet. This whole recipe is 124 Smart Points, but you can lower the points a lot if you substitute 1 cup Splenda for the sugar. With Splenda, the whole recipe is only 76 Smart Points. I think I would use 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup cooking oil, to lower them more.

Arlene's Raw Apple Cake Recipe

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cooking oil
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
2 cups diced apples
1/2 cup nuts
1/2 cup coconut

Mix all ingredients and press into 8 X 8 X 2" pan. Batter will be very stiff. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.

Hi Nancy,
I am looking for a good Chelsea bun recipe. I remember in my school years on our farm, my mother baking these buns that were like cinnamon buns but with lots of dried fruit and maybe walnuts.
