Garlic Broccoli Saladsource: Laurel F

A friend of mine saw this recipe in a magazine in the doctor’s office and decided to copy it for me. She didn’t record the exact recipe, just the basics.

I filled in the blanks myself to create this easy and absolutely yummy salad.

Ingredients

16 oz. frozen broccoli, defrosted

5 minced garlic

3 tbsp light olive oil

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 – 1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar

Directions

Squeeze the broccoli to remove excess moisture.

Saute the garlic in the olive oil till light tan.

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Can be refrigerated several days before serving if desired.

Note: Feel free to adjust this recipe to your own taste. Adding more or less of the minced garlic, seasonings or vinegar is completely fine.

World's Quickest Potato Chips and DipMatt DeTurck

World’s Quickest Chips and Dip is a recipe that’s so easy, I’m almost embarrassed to include it.  But it tastes so good, so I’m going to anyway.

Ingredients

1 pint sour cream

1 envelope onion soup mix

large bag of chips

Directions

Gradually combine sour cream with onion soup mix, to taste.  Sample after every addition.  Serve with chips for dipping.

Note: It is easy to add too much onion soup and this recipe is not forgiving! Be careful!

How To Make Cheese Ballssource: Theresa

This Cheese Ball recipe has evolved so much throughout the years, that it is no longer anything like the original.

Ingredients

8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

1 – 2 flat tablespoons cream cheese

1/4 cup finely chopped olives

garlic powder (to taste)

onion powder (to taste)

pepper (to taste)

Directions

Mix all ingredients until well blended.  You want the mixture to be very stiff, so add as little cream cheese as possible. Roll into a log or balls and serve with crackers. Note: You will have to mix the ingredients with your hands in order to get them blended sufficiently.

For a more attractive cheese, gently roll the balls in herbs or spice such as paprika, parsley or cilantro.

Variation: Chopped and rehydrated sun dried tomatoes can be also added to the cheese balls.

Homemade Dickie

source: Miles Kimball

I have quite a few shirts that I dislike because of their necklines. They aren’t immodest by most people’s standards, but they are still lower than what I enjoy wearing.I was going through my closet yesterday and I decided to throw those shirts, plus a mock turtleneck with a stained front, into the garbage. Just as I was reaching for the trash, genius struck.

Why couldn’t I combine the shirts with the low necklines with the turtleneck?

I tried on several of the low cut shirts on top of the turtleneck and they looked great. The only problem was that I was waaay to hot for comfort.

I went to throw the shirts into the garbage a second time, and genius struck again.

I decided to make a homemade dickie out of the mock turtleneck. I took a scissors and cut the sleeves off the turtleneck and cut the sides open. Then I cut off its front and back till about 3 inches below the neckline. I tried it on with the other shirts again and this time it was perfect.

The result: Instead of throwing away four unusable shirts, I gained three very nice ones.
