After a recent shopping trip with my best, much fitter and healthier pal, she helped me put my shopping away and I was really embarrassed (when I open some cupboards, things fall out)! Anyway she said she'd call back that week and give me some help to do a clear out. Oh dear it was worse than I thought, we ended up doing a trip to the local tip with the out of date stuff - suffice to say that a few were dated 2014 yuk! I see things and thing oh that might be good with blah blah blah. I am trying my best to change my shopping habits, use things well before their BB date and do all my own mixes from my well stocked spice/herb basket(s). Asking myself do I really need this and will I use it now that we don't entertain as often as we used to.

Cream of Leftover Soup Recipe
I am 84 and fix my breakfast and lunch. Love soup for lunch at least twice a week. I like purchased soups fine…but I feel thrifty when I can make something good out of almost nothing. My usual soup is 1 can Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup, 1 can water, plus any leftover that strikes my taste buds. Today was especially nice and I would like to share because it had an unusual ingredient. I had about 1 c. coleslaw,1 c. cheesy smashed potatoes in the fridge. I cooked the slaw, mayo and all in 1 bouillon cube, dissolved in 1 c. water until tender… added smashed potatoes, heated that before adding chicken soup plus can of water. When finally hot the result tasted like a loaded baked potato soup… and it made 3 to 4 servings depending on size of your bowl.
Butter, sour cream, bacon bits and/or chives would be nice additives if you are so inclined.

Nacho Cheese Dorito Chicken Recipe

My friend shared this recipe with me, and I was so reluctant because I dont even like Doritos, but she insisted I try it, and my whole family LOVED it. It is moist and has such a great flavor and even smells yummy cooking! Now I make it often. I pound the breast to flatten them and make them cook faster.

4 chicken breasts, pounded
1 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 cups nacho cheese flavor doritos, crushed
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put chicken breasts in zip-lock bag and pound to flatten somewhat. Combine mayonnaise and Italian Seasoning in wide bowl.

Crush Doritos in a zip-lock into pencil eraser sized pieces (or smaller). Roll chicken in the mayo mixture and then roll in Dorito crumbs. Place in casserole dish and drizzle with melted butter all over the chicken.
Bake uncovered thirty minutes.

Robbie's Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipes
Julie wanted to know how to grill corn on the cob. It is another topic in our family that has had much discussion. Everyone has an opinion and feeling about which method is best. You will need to decide for yourself. Many don't want to mess with taking the husks and silks off after the corn is cooked. They far prefer the foil packet method. Direct or indirect heat is also a personal preference. Some prefer the indirect heat simply because it does not require any turning. However it is prepared, fresh corn on the cob is a favorite during the summer and it always is devoured.

Grilled Corn on the Cob - Husks On Recipe

Corn on the cob
Butter or your favorite butter sauce when corn is done
Salt and Pepper to taste

Prepare your grill, gas or charcoal, with direct, high heat, about 550°F. (You know the grill is hot enough if are able to hold your hand one inch above the grill for only 1 second.)
The corn husks will protect the corn from burning or drying out while it is on the hot grill. If you want a bit of char on your corn, peel off a few of the outer layers of the corn husks first, before grilling.
Place the corn in their husks on the hot grill. Cover the grill. Turn the corn occasionally, until the husks are completely blackened and charred on all sides, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove the corn from the grill. Let them sit for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Remove the silks and charred husks from the corn. If you need to, use a damp towel to protect your hands from any sharp edges from the charred corn husks as you peel them off.
Serve with butter or your favorite butter sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. You can also sprinkle with a little chili powder, cotija cheese, and some lime juice for a Mexican twist.

Grilled Corn on the Cob - Foil Packets Recipe

6 ears of fresh corn (husks and silks removed)
Heavy duty Foil

Butter Sauce - Optional
1/3 c. butter
3 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. lemon pepper

Place each ear of corn on a 12 x 9 inch piece of heavy duty foil. Drizzle butter mixture over corn. Fold edges of foil to seal pouch securely, leaving space for expansion of steam. Grill over medium hot coals, turning occasionally, about 15 minutes. Makes 6 servings. - Open packets careful to avoid being burned by the steam.
Robbie IN


Grilled Corn on the Cob - Foil Packets Recipe #2 Recipe

6 Ears of fresh corn - husks and silks removed

Put 1 cleaned piece of corn each on heavy duty foil with 1 tbsp water and brush corn with melted butter. Wrap very tightly so it will not leak.
The trick now is to put on a Grill on medium heat with the cover down over INDIRECT HEAT for about 45 minutes. By putting on indirect heat, there is no need to turn the corn as it will not burn.

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

6 small eggplants, about 8 to 10 ounces each
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 1/2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
olive oil cooking spray

Heat oven to 450F. Bake eggplants until slightly softened, about 15 minutes. Transfer eggplants to a clean surface. Slice off 1/4 of each eggplant lengthwise and reserve the pieces. Hollow out eggplants, leaving about 1/4 inch of flesh attached to the skin. Reserve the flesh. Cut removed pieces and flesh of the eggplants into 1/4 inch dice; set aside. Spray a nonstick skillet with olive oil spray and place over medium heat. Stir in the diced eggplant, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt and pepper. Cover and cook the eggplant until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce and parsley and cook 3 to 4 minutes. Fill the reserved hollowed eggplants with eggplant filling brimming slightly over the top and place in a baking pan large enough to comfortably hold the eggplants. Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make the balsamella sauce: Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Whisk in flour until all the butter has been absorbed and cook 2 minutes. Slowly pour in 1/4 cup milk, while briskly whisking. Briskly whisk in the remaining 1 1/4 cups milk, 1/4 cup at a time, until all the milk has been added and the sauce is smooth and creamy. Stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and nutmeg. Cook until the sauce has thickened to the consistency of pancake batter, 4 to 5 minutes. Spoon about 2 tablespoons balsamella sauce over the top of each filled eggplant and sprinkle tops with Parmesan. Bake until tops are golden and eggplants are heated through, about 20 minutes.

Sue's Grilled Eggplant Recipe

1 eggplant, cut horizontally into 1/4 inch thick rings
3 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley

Place the eggplant slices on a piece of paper towel, and sprinkle them with a little salt to draw out the moisture. Let them stand for 20 minutes. Brush the eggplant with the olive oil, season with the salt and pepper, and place on a preheated grill. Turn occasionally, until they are tender and golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir together the garlic and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, plus the vinegar. When the eggplant is done, place on a serving platter, and drizzle with the garlic oil mixture. Sprinkle with the red pepper flakes, and the parsley.
