I have a question for Lisa TX. Your Texas style meatloaf sounds intriguing. Could you please clarify the 1 1/2 C milk chunky salsa ingredient?
Thank you, Barb in central NY

I see too few Thank You notes posted for responders to requests from Nancylanders. I therefore send this sincere Thank You to Mary J for her salmon salad recipes which appear in the 22 May Newsletter. While neither of the two recipes posted were what I was look for they both sound very good and especially the second one. I will be giving both of the recipes a try in the months ahead when warm weather encourages more salad meals and much less time in a hot kitchen. Thank You again Mary J for your contributions to my 'warm weather' meals in 2017.

Yesterday, I bought some red hot jaw breakers. I put in my mouth and when it got so hot I put it on a plate.  Later I went to get the red hot jaw breaker and it was missing.  One of the cats had stolen it.  Knowing Little One, I suspected it was him.  Later the jaw breaker was laying on the floor in the kitchen with a napkin over it.  Ditto is the only cat that puts a napkin over foods he does not like.  Guess he was telling me something.  Today I unwrapped another red hot jaw breaker and again I put it on a plate while my mouth cooled off, but today the red hot jaw breaker was not missing, LOL

The next newsletter will be sent out on Saturday.
