Hi Nancy! I made this for dinner the other night because it was so hot and humid. I did not want to use the stove or oven in 90 plus weather! Hubby liked it so well he asked for more the next day so I made more! It is so easy and good!

Avocado and Lump Crab Salad Recipe

1 medium Hass avocado (about 5 oz avocado)
4 oz lump crab meat
2 tbsp chopped red onion
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 grape tomatoes, diced
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt and fresh black pepper
2 leaves butter lettuce (optional)

In a medium bowl, combine onion, lime juice, cilantro, tomato, olive oil, 1/8 tsp salt and fresh pepper, to taste.
Add crab meat and gently toss.
Cut the avocado open, remove pit and peel the skin or spoon the avocado out.
Season with remaining 1/8 tsp salt and fill the avocado halves equally with crab salad.
This makes 2 servings, place on two plates with lettuce if you wish and serve.

This next recipe is a good one and quick to fix when friends drop over and always is a big hit!

Cucumber Sandwiches Recipe

2 loaves party size rye bread
1 8oz package cream cheese
1 package Good Seasons dry Italian dressing mix
2 or 3 medium cucumbers
dry dill weed

Blend softened cream cheese and dressing mix. Spread on rye slices. Top with thin slices of cucumber, then sprinkle with dill. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Serve chilled. The bread absorbs the seasoning flavor if left refrigerated at least half a day.

These are great and easy! My hubby's cousin introduced these to us several years ago. I make them occasionally, and sprinkle dill on top before I serve them. Several friends also began making these since I first introduced them in Alamogordo. You may use French or Italian bread instead of the party size bread. You could also sprinkle paprika on top instead of the dill.

This egg dish is very good and easy too and would work for either dinner or brunch.

I fixed this dish again but made it all in my trusty 9"" square skillet! When I made it years ago, I always made it in the microwave, but I like it better in the skillet. If you do it in the skillet, fix the bacon separately and fry it as crisp as you want.
Serve it alongside. T & T

Here is another recipe for Alice. It is slightly different than one previously share. I included the second recipe, as you might want to try it using Bisquick in place of the flour and cornmeal. Although called corn nuggets it is very similar to corn fritters.
Robbie IN

Corn Fritters Using Bisquick Recipe

1 can whole kernel corn (17 oz.)
1 lg. egg
2 c. Bisquick
salt and pepper to taste
Cooking oil or shortening

Drain liquid from corn into large bowl. Beat egg into liquid. Slowly add Bisquick to liquid, stirring until smooth. Stir in corn, salt and pepper.
Heat a thin coat of cooking oil in large skillet to about 365 to 370 degrees. Drop corn mixture by the spoonful into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides, adding oil as necessary. Drain on a rack or paper towels.
