  • Dixie Ryan: Peach cake gets another taste

  • This next week I am going to bake a peach cake. I had the recipe in my article on May 30 and a lady named Lola tried it. She said it was delicious but had a strange consistency and she wondered if I left out the oil or something.

  • This next week I am going to bake a peach cake. I had the recipe in my article on May 30 and a lady named Lola tried it. She said it was delicious but had a strange consistency and she wondered if I left out the oil or something.
    It took me a while to find the recipe. It came from a friend who had used the recipe for years for potlucks, etc. Her husband passed away and she moved away so I had to call her, and she sent me her copy of the recipe. I had it totally correct in the paper, so Lola and whoever are fine using it as is. I will let you know how it turns out when I try it.
    I think perhaps I am going to force myself to cook some meals and invite people out to eat. My married granddaughter, Rachelle, and her hubby Trent will love that. I think my daughter, Renita, who is always doing something nice for me, will probably like that too.
    Perhaps I will invite the boys and families out too if they can slow down long enough to visit mom. Our oldest son, Mike, lives in Colorado Springs, so there won’t be a chance of him eating at my house, but my oldest daughter, Renee and hubby Jeff, might enjoy a meal.
    That must be part of the therapy when one loses their mate. It gives assurance that they are, at least on occasion, eating right and gives time for the family to spend some time together.
    Yum A Setta
    2 pounds lean hamburger
    Salt and pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1⁄4 cup chopped onion
    1 (10 3⁄4 ounce) can tomato soup, undiluted
    1 (10 3⁄4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
    1 (16-ounce) package egg noodles
    1 (8-ounce) package processed cheese, such as Kraft or Velveeta
    Brown hamburger with salt, pepper, brown sugar and onion. Add tomato soup. Cook egg noodles, drain. Add cream of chicken soup. Layer hamburger mixture and noodle mixture in 9-x-12-inch casserole with processed cheese between layers. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
    Vegetable Salad
    1 can English peas, drained
    1 can French-style green beans, drained
    1 can shoe peg corn, drained
    1 cup diced celery
    1 cup diced green peppers
    1 cup chopped green onions or regular onions
    1 small can pimentos, diced
    Mix together:
    1⁄2 teaspoon salt
    1⁄2 cup sugar
    1⁄2 cup vinegar
    1 cup salad oil
    Stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over vegetables. Chill overnight. Will keep for several days.
    This salad or just a lettuce salad goes great with the Yum A Setta.
    Page 2 of 2 - My new grandson-in-law, Trent, does not like cherries, and if I remember right, he does not like pie, so I have to be really picky on what I fix for dessert. I may have to do an inquiry regarding his favorite dessert so he will be sure and get full.
    Stay warm! Do some cooking and I will see you next week.
