Girls just like lunch!!

The best part of painting is the lunches and the portraits of the family I get done.

Another light lunch we had was a square of an egg casserole. Of course each morning Karen has a 9x13” pan of brownies in a glass baking dish, cut into 1” squares so they will not be as fattening. That is true until you eat several. If you eat one and quit, it wouldn’t add to much weight.


Sausage Egg Casserole

Karen Patton

5 slices of white bread

3/4 lb. sausage

4 ozs. shredded Swiss cheese

2 ozs. shredded cheddar cheese

4 Eeggs

1 c. milk

1/2 can mushroom soup

1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce

Cube bread into a greased 8x8” or 9x9’’ pan. Brown sausage and drain on paper towels. Spread sausage over the bread. Layer cheeses over sausage. Beat eggs, add soup, milk and worcestershire sauce. Pour over layers. Let set 6 to 8 hours before cooking or freeze ahead for company. Bake until browned. (I let it thaw in the oven for 5 hours before baking or thaw in the refrigerator.) Bake 350 degrees for 45 to 60 min. Let stand for 10 min. before cutting. Serves 5-6.


Ice Cream Dessert

Karen Patton

Pre-heat to 300 degrees.

2 1/2 c. Rice Krispies

1 c. coconut

1 c. broken pecans

Stick melted oleo

Spread on cookie sheet and bake 25 min. at 300 degrees or until lightly browned.

Add 3/4 c. brown sugar

Stir, cool slightly and spread half of the mixture in a 9 by 12” pan. Slice 1/2 gallon ice cream in about 1 to 1 1/2 inch slices and spread over the crumbs. Cover with remainder of mixture and place in the freezer covered with foil until serving time and slice in desired sizes and place on small plate.


Pickled Eggs

Karen North

12 hard boiled eggs

2 c. white vinegar

1 c. water

2 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pickling salt

1/2 tsp. celery salt

1/2 tsp. minced garlic

Peel eggs and put into jar. Bring remaining ingredients to boil. Pour over eggs. Refrigerate 24 hours before serving. Keeps for several weeks.


A true friend is one who knows you’re a good EGG. Even if you’re slightly cracked.


Tooth Powder

Opal Northrup

6 tbsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

Mix. Excellent tooth powder and freshens breath. Opal remembers her folks using soda.


Remember how it used to be

When folks had time to do

The things like makin’ bread

And the jams and jellies too?


Remember when the folks had time

To just visit now and then.

To maybe even stay all night

Before going home again?


You remember when the ice man

Would come knocking on the door

With his drippin’ back a totin

Maybe 50 pounds or more?


You remember when a nickel

That you took along to school,

Would buy a coke, a candy bar,

A pencil or a rule?


You remember making ice cream

When it really was a chore,

Then eatin’ till you almost bust

Then going back for more?


You remember playing marbles

Roller-skating down the street

And the little corner grocery,

With your weekly bill to meet?


Remember turning up the lamp

So you could read a bit or sew,

And building’ up the fire while listening

To the news on radio?


Then the big ol’ Sunday dinners,

When it always seemed to me

There would be more food left over

Than there started out to be.
