I've been assigned the task of making pea-raddichio gnudi as my contribution for an appetizer. I'm not a great cook so this is a huge p-i-t-a. Of course my cousin said it's easy but she devours advise from Giada & Alton as if anyone with half a brain could pull off these recipes. Wish me luck!

How about buying some fresh turkey cutlets, usually sold in the meat dept, roasting them. Cool and cut into chunks, then add to condensed soups,(cream of chicken, celery etc) or turkey gravy, and place in a casserole dish with some Pepridge Farm dressing mixed together with butter and chicken broth, and placed on top of the turkey/gravy mixture. Bake until bubbly and hot. Serve with some mashed potatoes, peas, & cranberry sauce. Very reasonable meal and tasty!

Breakfast idea...this is really good!

Breakfast Casserole (Pennsylvania Dutch)

Ingredients:

6 Large Eggs
2 c Milk
1 ts Salt
1 ts Dry Mustard
2 Slices White Bread, Cubed

Instructions:
* Use either sharp or mild Shredded Chedder Cheese.

Beat eggs, add milk, salt and mustard, mixing well.
Grease bottom of 9 x 13 baking dish.
Place in layer of bread cubes, the sausage, then cheese.
Pour egg mixture over the top.
Refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 350 degrees F.
for 45 minutes.
Let stand about 5 minutes before cutting.

I received word that our guests are thinking about adding another item to them menu-a veggie platter ( carrots, celery, radishes etc). Both husband and wife are diabetic so my husband and I can avoid serving not so healthy snacks ( pretzels, potato chips etc.) as predinner appetizers.

We use to bar-b-que for easter. Usually a mix of hamburgers, spicy sausage (to be served as a po'boy), and chicken. All served with plain homemade potato salad. We keep our potato salad simple. Just eggs, potatoes, salt, black pepper, mayo, and French's yellow mustard. Also served with it is what we cajuns call rice dressing, a spicy mix of rice, meat, and other stuff.
