Thought this was pretty cute. Is that Ellen rapping?

Collecting other recipes... butterscotch sauce

Since Kathy's posted a couple of recipes recently, I started going through the recipes online here. We have many family favourites (shortbread, yum yums etc) but I think there are some missing. Like those wicked chocolate caramel thingies that Kathy made...or was it Lois...anyway, there's also Barb's chocolate chip squares, I wouldn't mind having the Penuche (sp?) icing recipe.

And Christmas cookies and stuff...mum's meatballs. Hmm. I'm getting hungry!

Spaghetti Sauce

| 1 Comment

Thank you Mary Moore! This is the best sauce recipe in the world!

2 lb hamburger
2 cooking onions, chopped
1 7 1/2 ounce can tomato sauce
1 can tomato soup, undiluted
1 13 ounce can tomato paste
1 28 ounce can of tomatoes
3 cups water
3 T white sugar
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Tabasco
3 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp basil
1 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp pepper

- in large pot (dutch oven) saute meat and onions until all redness disappears from meat, and onions are soft, but not brown (break up meat as it cooks)
- add all remaining ingredients and combine thoroughly (I bring it to a boil)
- turn down heat, and simmer uncovered 2 1/2 to 3 hours, stirring often
- serve over noodles, or use as the meat layer of lasagna
- freeze leftovers


Look what came to my cottage this weekend...

It's mostly about the kids, big and small (man they do grow don't they? Facial hair and everything. And that's just the girls!)


But it's REALLY about the ham...and the ham...


This year there was a miracle. The virgin Mary's face appeared in the ham pan:


We were about to sell it on eBay, when she smiled. We just couldn't part with her then!
