What Cancer Cannot Do!
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot destroy peace.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot suppress memories.
It cannot invade the soul.
It cannot steal eternal life.
It cannot conquer the spirit
Therefore, Cancer Is So Limited!
Get-Well Cards Contain Family-Favorite Recipes
I'm home recovering from surgery. I jokingly told my friends that they could send me get-well cards, but I would be shaking them first before I opened them and if there wasn't a family-favorite recipe inside, I wasn't opening it. Below is a recipe that got left out of last month's article, and a few family-favorite recipes for you to enjoy.
Polish Sausage and Applesauce
3 pounds of link Polish Sausage, cut in 1-inch slices
Place sausage slices in a skillet, cover with water, bring to a boil, and drain. In a mixing bowl, combine onion, cider vinegar, brown sugar, and applesauce. Stir in meat. Place ingredients on a jelly roll pan and bake for 1 hour in 325 degree oven (or place in crock pot on low for 4 hours).
Sweet Story Cake
4 stiffly beaten egg whites (prepared and set aside)
In a medium-size mixing bowl, stiffly beat egg whites and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening and mix in the flour, baking powder, salt. Combine the milk, cherry juice, vanilla, and almond extract, and add to cake ingredients, mixing well. Stir in beaten egg whites, maraschino cherries, and walnuts. Place equal amounts of cake batter in two 9-inch greased and floured cake pans. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Frost with pink almond flavored frosting.
3 (10-oz.) packages frozen chopped spinach
Heat spinach in microwave until thawed. Drain. Turn into 2-quart glass casserole dish. Add butter, sour cream, and onion soup mix. Mix well. Sprinkle top with crushed crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
1 cup chopped walnuts, divided
Mix ONLY 3/4 cup walnuts, flour, and butter. Press into 9x13-inch pan. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cool completely. Blend together cream cheese and confectioners sugar. Stir in ONLY 1 cup Cool Whip® and spread on crust. Beat together milk and pudding until thick. Pour over second layer. Top with remaining Cool Whip® and walnuts.
