Its been so cold the past few days that I made this soup for supper tonight. It tasted good on a cold night with some corn bread. If you are a Weight Watcher the whole recipe only has 23 Freestyle points. Arlene in cold Missouri

1 cup chopped onion
1 cup diced potatoes

1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. basil

In my opinion, the best recipe in the newsletter since 1996, is a spaghetti sauce recipe posted many years ago.

The Best Spaghetti Sauce You'll Ever Eat Recipe

1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 T. olive oil
1-1/2 c. chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T. flour
1 c. bread and butter pickles, chopped fine (measure after chopping)
2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes
6 oz. tomato paste
1 t. salt
2 t. oregano
2 t. basil
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 c. red wine (optional)

Brown ground beef and onion in oil. Add chopped garlic and fry a minute longer. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, covered, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook 15 minutes more to thicken. Serve over hot spaghetti.

You'll be sorry if you leave the pickles out of this. They are the secret that makes this the best spaghetti sauce you'll ever eat!

Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread Recipe

1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
4 very ripe bananas, mashed*
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Mash bananas, beat the eggs and add to the bananas with the vanilla and buttermilk. Mix well. Add to creamed butter and sugar mixture. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to banana mixture, beat well. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9"x 5"x 3" loaf pans. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until bread pulls away from sides of pan. Cool

6 tablespoons butter
10 tablespoons dark brown sugar
5 tablespoons milk
1 cup or more, chopped pecans

Melt butter in saucepan. Add sugar and milk. Cook until very syrupy. Remove from heat and add chopped pecans. Pour over bread, spreading to all the corners and place under broiler until bubbly and brown. WATCH CLOSELY so topping does not burn.

Note: Use the softest mushy bananas that you can. I leave them on the counter until they are almost black. This recipe was posted along time ago on Gail's Recipe Swap by nlb. It originally came from a Jr. League in Austin cookbook.

Susie's Cheese Bacon Meatloaf Recipe

2 lbs. ground sirloin or ground round
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs, I purchase it that way
1 large egg plus catsup for both to equal 1 cup
1/2 cup onion, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1 to 2 tablespoons Hormel 50% fat free bacon pieces in the jar
1/2 to 1 cup sharp cheese

In a large bowl put the ground meat, bread crumbs, onion, salt, pepper, bacon and cheese. Put the egg and measure the catsup to equal 1 cup. Then beat this mixture together and pour over the other ingredients and mix well. Put this in a large loaf pan and cook at 350F for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Most do this step or it will fall apart. Then tent foil over pan and rest for 15 minutes. Depending on the thickness of the slices you can get 6 to 10 or more slices per pan.

Reserve 2 tablespoons catsup. Combine beef, eggs, oats, soup mix and remaining catsup. Shape into a round loaf for crock pot or oblong for oven. Put into crock pot. Top with remaining catsup.

My family likes salmon. This recipe was in a newsletter years ago. It is a favorite with my family.

2 tbsp. Butter
2 tbsp. Flour

Break the salmon into pieces. Prepare a sauce of the butter, flour, milk and salt. Place a layer of the salmon in the bottom of a greased baking dish, add some of the sauce and a layer of salmon and so on until all the ingredients are used. Sprinkle buttered cornflakes over top. Bake at 350 degrees until sauce bubbles up and cornflakes are golden. Arrange a layer of cheese over top and put back in oven until the cheese is melted.

This newsletter is one of the best on the internet. It brings together members all of the world. I am from Germany but am from the U.S. The recipes in this newsletter are fun to make and make me home sick once in a while. Here is an easy recipe from the newsletter (sometime around 2002).
