This is sooooo good!


This recipe was made popular at Benedict's Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky earlier in the century.
Serves 3-4

1 large Cucumber, peeled and seeds removed
8 ounces Cream cheese, room temperature
1 Tablespoon Onion, grated
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
Dash of Green food coloring (optional)

Dice the cucumber. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Serve as is on sandwiches or canapes. Or thin with a little sour cream and use as a vegetable dip.

Hello Melissa, "B" is for Bacon-Potato Soup. Boil your peeled and cut potatoes in a medium size pot. Fry your bacon in a fry pay until crisp. Let your potatoes boil until they are about half way done. Add cream or milk along with a little rue, (cornstarch and butter mixture). Crumble up the bacon and add your favorite seasonings. I like it with just a little salt (as the bacon is salty), pepper, and a Spanish seasoning called Adobe. Cook until potatoes are soft. Eat up, as it a hardy meal perfect for the cold nights here in the Ozarks! Sincerely, Ernest

This is the fancy gourmet kind that only the adults in the family like:)

3 lbs beef (a tender cut, sirloin, eye of round, etc) sliced thinly across grain 1 tbs Dijon mustard 3 tbs tomato paste 3 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 1 lb mushrooms sliced 1 chopped onion 2 tbs worchestershire sauce 1/2 cup red wine 1 cup sour cream -- Saute the onion and the beef in some margerine until the beef is browned. Saute the mushrooms separately in some butter. Add them to the beef. Add the seasonings, plus worchestershire, mustard and tomato paste and stir it all together. Add wine. Simmer a little (till everything else is ready!). Add a little water if it seems too dry or thick. Add the sour cream last, heat it up.
