sweet potato casserole

2 pounds sweet potatoes- cooked
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
3 Tablespoons butter melted
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

1/3 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/8 tsp salt
2 TBSP butter melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350. Mix first 7 ingredients together. Hand beaters work great to get it smooth. In seperate bowl mix topping ingredients. Spread on top. Bake for 25 minutes. You can stick it under the broiler for 2-4 minutes to get it golden brown, but watch it can burn fast. Make sure you use a metal pan or broiler safe pan if you intend to broil it. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving. recipe

skillet omelet

4 eggs
1/4 cup green pepper
1/4 cup onion
1/2 cup cheese

Beat eggs. Add butter to pan and let melt. Keep on medium. Add egg and green pepper and onion. Turn down to low or medium low- cover. Let cook about 10 minutes. Add cheese and cook for about 5 more minutes.

I used the smallet skillet I had. Probably about 6-8 inches.

Chef Salad

There really isn't a recipe for chef salad. We just throw things together, but here is a list of some of the things that we like.

cheese chunks
ham, turkey or chicken
boiled egg
toasted walnuts
kidney beans or balck beans
red onion

chicken salad

2 cups diced chicken- i use canned chicken
2 cups diced celery
1/4 minced green onion
2/3 cup miracle whip- add 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp vinegar

Mix. You can refrigerate overnight- this will cause the celery to not be so crunchy if that is how you like it.
