    1/4 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

    This is a great challenge! Thanks Sara for starting it. Here is something that I just poppped into the oven about 5 minutes ago.


    ~Zuchinni/Squash Casserole~

    3 medium zuchinni (I use 1/2 zuch's and 1/2 yellow crookneck squash)
    1 sleeve of crackers
    1/4 stick butter
    1 egg
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 medium onion, diced
    1/2 cup cheese (I use more)
    1 T. sugar
    salt and pepper

    Wash and cut squash. Parboil until almost done and then add onions. Boil another 4 minutes or until tender. Drain and mash. Add butter and mix in. Add 3/4 sleeve of crushed crackers. Beat egg into milk and add to mixture. Add sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Add cheese and mix well. Pour into a greased baking dish. Add the rest of the sleeve of crushed crackers sprinkled over the top. Bake 1 hour at 325 degrees F.

    Really good, easy and mellow!

    Makes for a great comfort food.

    Oh, I love fried tomatoes! We fry up thick slices of firm red tomatoes dredged in flour, salt and pepper. Fry them up in bacon grease and then make gravy with the leftover flour, some milk and the drippings from the fried tomatoes. You can also use a few of your friend tomatoes diced up in the gravy. serve with biscuits or bread. Yumm!!!

    juice of one lemon
    1/2 cup sifted flour
    3/4 cup rolled oats
    1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
    1/3 cup margarine
