Chipped Beef Cheeseball Recipe

2 (8 oz blocks) of cream cheese
5-6 stalks green onion chopped fine
1 jar Armour Dried Beef chopped fine (reserve some for rolling the ball in)
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar
1 tbls Worcestershire sauce
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
1 cup chopped toasted pecans (optional)

Combine all ingredients, except the reserved chipped beef planned for the outside of
the ball and toasted pecans.

When combined, form into a general ball shape and wrap in plastic wrap.
Store in fridge for at least 8 hours to let the flavors meld.
When you are ready to serve, remove cheeseball from wrap and roll in the reserved
chipped beef or optional toasted pecans. (If you roll in pecans, add all the beef to the mix
before forming ball)

Getting your very old recipe program from your very old computer into a new computer simply may be impossible. I'm no computer expert but have found a couple things that actually work (sort of) for me. If the old computer is still running simply save it and use only for that recipe program.

If you need to transfer the recipes in a workable program in another newer computer, look for a program that does work in both computers, maybe something as simple as the body of an email. In the old computer, copy and paste the recipes into an email (you might also be able to work with Open Office which is free on the internet). Email the recipes to yourself, open it in the new computer and copy and paste the recipes into a new program that the newer computer likes better. It can be time consuming but faster than re-typing pages and pages of recipes. I use a "publisher" program that works great in my old computer and sort of works in the new computer. I could put out some money and buy a Publisher that will run in Window 10, but so far, I'm OK with the struggle (so far). A Publisher program can prepare masters for an outside printer or printing on your home computer. I've done several booklets in my Publisher program and sent many newsletters to outside printers for newsletter printers. I'm sure you can find one that will do what your requirements are. Good luck on the project

I am not sure what is going on with Yahoo Groups. I can send in the email to post and it never comes up PENDING so it can be sent out to you all. The problem may be I only have one computer working and it has Windows XP on it. Sending out the email site recently. The newsletter will be sent out as usual but I have no way of notifiying anyone that the newsletter has been posted. Hopefully our recipe family members will check online to see it is being posted online as usual. Remember to refresh the home page each day to get the lasted listings of newsletters. Remember to send in your favorite recipes each day so they can be posted online.

Not sure if I've submitted this before. If I have, it's well worth sharing again! Happy Thanksgiving to you, Nancy, the kritters, and all the 'Landers!

Asparagus and Tomatoes Recipe
I'm not sure what to call it other than that.

2 bunches asparagus, ends trimmed.
2-4 tomatoes, depending on size
Shredded Parmesan cheese, to taste
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Put your asparagus in a skillet. Put in some water, cover, and simmer/steam until crisp-tender, but not soft. Spray oblong casserole dish with Pam. Lay asparagus in. I like to lay it with 1/2 of the tips facing one long side and the other 1/2 facing the opposite, so the ends are overlapping in the middle. Slice the tomatoes about 1/4" thick. Lay tomatoes down the center of the dish, covering the ends. Place them so they are overlapping each other about 1/2 way. Sprinkle down middle with Parmesan cheese as desired. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 long enough to melt cheese and heat through. Or you can microwave.

This makes a very pretty presentation for a table, especially in a white dish as it highlights the colors.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas our family is so busy. We usually have casseroles during this time. If one of the members of the family doesn't have time to sit down and eat with the rest of us, he can heat up a serving of a casserole easily.
