Thank you, Frank. I have collected recipes for years and just posting them and organizing them here is as close as I want to get to writing a cookbook. I'm working my way through a big file box and tossing clippings and scraps of paper once the recipe is either entered here or discarded. I have much more ability now to read a recipe and "taste" it than I used to, so some of what I have saved for so long goes into the trash.

Some recipes are totally my originals. I spent an entire summer "perfecting" lasagna and another getting sour cream chicken enchiladas just the way we like them. I did have much-needed help on the sauce when the original owner of El Chico's restaurant let the Dallas paper publish his recipe.

Some of my other recipes are based on recipes from magazines, cookbooks, and now the internet that sounded good to me and I added and subtracted until we liked the result. I give credit when I know the source of the recipe, even if I have changed it quite a bit. Southern Living magazine and cookbooks have been one of my biggest inspirations. (Well, until they did not pick my 30 minute version of the chicken enchiladas as the grand prize winner the year I submitted the recipe. Whistling )

I spent nearly forty years teaching and counseling, most of that time in the same small town high school. Many recipes came from faculty potluck lunches since we all tried to find something new and delicious (and probably fattening) to bring. A lot of those recipes were quick and easy because none of us had any extra time for cooking, but we did have hungry families and lots of school activities to attend. I miss those lunches a lot!

dthen i take it you are retired frm the school system, at least i hope you are after 40- years of service.

in deb's cookbook she has a recipe for lasagna that i just love. that recipe was handed down through everal generations and i like it because it is kind of "loose" when it comes out of the oven. we always say we are going to let it sit to make it less loose but e start eating it as soon at it comes out. LOL

when i boys were in grade scdhool we always had those [pot luck dinners. we would come with enough food to feed 10 people and they always looked forward to us coming to the dinners. LOL

i have several new recipes that i got from the price chopper booklet that sound really good. i have not made any yet but there are several that i would like to try.

i will put them up today or tomorrow.

have a great evening

This recipe also works well in the crockpot.

Here's a cabbage soup I like. My wife says it tastes like liquid cabbage rolls.

1 small head cabbage, sliced thin
2 stalks celery, sliced (original called for 2 cups - we just don't care for that much cooked celery)
1 small onion diced
1 pkg onion soup mix
1 46 oz can tomato juice
4 cups water
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup rice

Brown beef and onion. Add other ingredients, simmer about 1 1/2 hours. Stir occasionally.

Help - put this beef soup in pork. Can you move?
