Fall has about all fallen! The past few weeks I have enjoyed the trees with beautiful fall leaves along the road going to McCook or Imperial but … our gold has about all fallen. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving because some of kids are coming home for that Thanksgiving dinner. I was looking through an old recipe book to find one of David’s recipes.


Bacon-Horseradish Dip

David Straub Jr.

1 c. mayonnaise

1/2 c. cooked bacon, crumbled

1 c. sour cream

1/4 c. horseradish

Mix well; cover and chill.


“It is most important to keep the promises you make to yourself and to your family.”


Spinach Blender Dip

Orpha Maris and

Beryl Carsten

1 c. mayonnaise

1 pkg. spinach

1/4 c. walnuts, chopped

1 clove garlic

1 c. sour cream

1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated

1 tsp. dried basil

1/4 tsp. salt

Chop all ingredients in a blender until smooth; cover and chill. I found this one interesting because Orpha had lived in Wauneta and Beryl lives in Kaycee, Wyo.

All things are admired either because they are brand new or because they are great.


Family Supper Soup

Nola Straub

1/2 lb. white beans

10 c. water divided

1 sm. ham hock

1 med. bay leaf

1 tsp. pepper

1 lg. onion, chopped fine

2 lg. ribs celery, chopped fine

1/4 c. parsley

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. basil

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Soak beans overnight in 6 cups of water after cleaning and picking over, bring to boil for 2 min. and let set for 1 hour. Add remaining 4 cups water, ham hock, bay leaf and pepper. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover. Simmer 1 1/4 hours or until beans are almost tender. Discard bay leaf. Cut meat from the bones and return to the soup. Discard bones. Serves 6 and can be doubled or tripled for a family.

“What people say behind your back is your standing in the community.” E. W. Howe However, is it true or a figment of their imagination? Gossip is just that… and by the time it goes around the coffee table a time or two you might not recognize it either. Lol

2 egg yolks

3/4 c. oil

2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. salt

Sprinkle paprika
