Elaine the easiest way to increase the print in the news letter is to go into View and increase Zoom, I have mine increased to 125%, sometimes 150%. There will probably be other ways, but I find this easiest.

Hi Nancy!

It has been a very long time since I have written but decided to begin again. It is good to be back!

To answer Judy in MT I have a very easy chart I use to change from our American measurements to those in England/Scotland, etc. Nancy I hope this comes through
Click Here for the Chart

The above is a link to the chart I use the chart itself would not paste here sorry.

I made this following dish the other day and it was very good. Hubby loved it - gravy!

Crockpot Cube Steak Recipe

1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
6 (about 4 oz. each) beef cube steaks- I used 4
1 Tbsp. canola oil
3 c. water, divided
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 envelope mushroom gravy mix
1 envelope onion gravy mix

Spray the inside of a 3-5 quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place the sliced onions in the slow cooker. Combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper in a large sealing plastic bag. Add steaks, a few at a time and shake until completely coated. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the steaks, a few at a time, and cook until lightly browned on each side. Place the browned steaks on top of the onions in the slow cooker. Pour 2 c. water over all. Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours or until meat is tender.
In a bowl, whisk together the 3 gravy mixes with remaining 1 cup water. Add to slow cooker and cover and cook on Low for 30 minutes longer.

I made the following pie 2 weeks ago and it is still good to have once a year or so. I always use full fat not the diet stuff.

The following is also posted on Nancy's message board and good for summer. I made it yesterday and added 1/2 peeled chopped cucumber.

Tomato and Onion Salad Recipe
TNT Recipe

4 Roma tomatoes, sliced thinly
1/2 sweet onion, sliced thinly
3/4 to 1 c. small cubed mozzarella

Red Wine Vinaigrette*

Mix tomatoes, onion and cheese thoroughly. Drizzle with vinaigrette, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

*1/4 c. olive oil
2 tbl. red wine or raspberry vinegar
1 - 2 cloves, crushed
salt & pepper to taste

Mix well and drizzle over salad.

If you want to jazz it up a bit, use red onion instead of the sweet onion and add salad shrimp. There! You have a full meal! Just serve crusty French or Italian baguettes along side! Yummy!

I had some green bean fries some time ago at a local restaurant and they were so good! Does anyone have a good recipe for them?

Hi to your furbabies Nancy! By the way I am still trying to take care of your message board.

This is a fruit loaf recipe that I have been using since "Noah" built the Ark. I've made numerous changes over the years (i.e not soaking when unexpected guests arrive, type of sugar, type of fruit/nuts, really depends on what you have available. I would suggest using proper Weetabix not the new cheaper varieties of wheat biscuits) It is simple and involves only the cooking time and popping various bowls in the dishwasher.

Post by Sylvia on Feb 2, 2009 at 11:38am
I like making this loaf, it's really just a matter of assembling all the ingredients. No effort required and it tastes goooood.

Fruit and Nut Breakfast Loaf Recipe

3 Weetabix*, crushed
6 oz/175g Demerara sugar
6 oz/175g mixed dried fruit
10 fl.oz/300ml milk
1 egg, beaten
7 oz/200g self-raising flour
2 oz/50g walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 140oC/280oF
Grease and line a 2 lb/900g loaf tin.
Place the crushed Weetabix, sugar and mixed fruit in a bowl. Add the milk, stir, cover and soak for 3-6 hours.
Add the egg, walnuts and flour to the soaked mixture. Fold until thoroughly mixed.
Spoon into the prepared tin and bake into the oven for 1 hour 15 to 1 hour 30 minutes.
Serve on its own or spread with butter and jam.

Tip - Replace the walnuts with mixed chopped nuts, or your favourite nuts.

Change Size of Print
Hi Nancy, a person asked about printing recipes in a different size. I copy and paste it in a Word document. Then I can change the font if I want to make it larger or smaller. Betty in ME
Betty in ME

Judy, as much as I do my best to help - on this occasion I will have to leave it to our Nancylanders on the other side of the pond. I do have a conversion table on my fridge that I compiled many many years ago, but it is so tattered and stained I wouldn't even try to copy and post it. I too have problems. as here in the UK we not only hae to convert recipes from cups, Imperial but Metric too! No doubt some kind soul will provide you with the info needed.

Hi Nancy and all Landers - and adorable furkids--
In the July 7th newsletter, Elaine asked how to enlarge the font on the newsletter. I have always used a Track Ball, since I could never get the hang of a mouse! On my Track Ball, I just hold down the control key on the keyboard and move the center scroll bar. It may work the same if using a mouse. Hope this helps.

Hi Nancy
Did I miss some Pressure Cooker recipes? I know there was a request for them. I, too, would like some Pressure Cooker recipes. I have a new electric one and I do not know how to use it!
Regards, Carol

Hobo Recipes
I think the recipe Esther is searching for is called Hobos or Hobo Packets. There are many versions of the recipe. You can use mushrooms, squash, zucchini, broccoli or other vegetables in the packets, as well as different sauces. You can also mix up your favorite meat loaf recipe and make it in to patties instead of using hamburger patties. I have also seen people use hot dogs or brots in place of the hamburger patties You can also add spices and herbs that you like.
Robbie IN

Hobo Packet #1
4 hamburger patties
4 sm. potatoes, thinly sliced
4 sm. onions, sliced thin
Steak sauce

Make individual servings. On a sheet of foil, place 1 patty; cover with steak sauce and add potatoes and onions. Wrap. tightly and repeat for all patties, making four packets. on grill or open fire over medium heat. Cook until carrots and potatoes are done (depends on how much you put in the packet). Can also bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

For Susan who wanted advice on what type of steak is best, I think you will likely get a variety of opinions. My husband will only eat rib eyes, if he has any say in what is bought and grilled. Others prefer T bones, strip, filet mignon, or Porter House. Each cut has its advantages and drawbacks. In part it is a matter of taste and how lean you want your meat versus how much marbling of fat you want in the meat. It can also be confusing when you go shopping, as different cuts are called by similar but different names. If you do a search for types of beef steaks you will get descriptions of each cut and information about their best feature. youtube also has great videos on the types of steaks and grilling tips, you might want to check out.
