happy National bloggin recipe DAY!!!

okay this one is a tribute to my grandma.. down on the farm!
she has lived in the same house for over 50 years!! has raised 5 kids, and been a saint to a very hardworking husband til he died a few years ago.
she litterly has an ice house, a cellar house, and no dishwasher, til two years ago!!
and the stories she tells(she's 86) of life surrounded with cows, sheep, hogs, chickens, and all the dogs and barn cats running around..
so meals are always awesome.. when we eat at the farm... some real down home cooking!
these are some of my faves:
(beware they are all fattening!)

Chicken Tetrazini

1 ) 1 pkg 7oz spaghetti.. cook and drain and put back in pot
2) 2 c. cubed , cooked chicken.. add to spaghetti
3.) make a rue with 1/4 c margarine and 1/4 c flour
4) add to rue, 1/2 salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 tbls. water
5) add mixture to spaghetti, and add one can drained mushrooms

put all in 13 x 9 pan top with shredded mozzeralla or cheddar cheese(or both!)

bake at 350 degrees for 30 min..

so YUMMMMY!!! and makes a lot..

Corn Pudding

2 cans whole kernel corn
1 can cream style corn
1 egg beaten
1 box jiffy corncake mix
8 oz sour cream
1 stick margarine

mix all above together and put into greased 9x13 pan. bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.
DELISH!!!!


Candied apples
4-6 med. size apples
1 c sugar

1/2 cup red hot candies

peel and slice apples in a qurt baking dish. combine sugar and corn syrup sprinkle evenlly over apple slices. sprinkle red hots on top.
add enough water just to the place where you can see the water under the apples.
