A few things I've cooked this week

I've cooked or prepared at least three new things and filled a request for a long-time favorite of Mom's.

Dirt Cookies:  These are delicious.  These are the cookies OLD people remember from their childhood.  They are the cookies with oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate, that you don't have to bake. Mom wanted me to make them, so I did.

Chips:  I made these using wheat tortillas.  They are good and easy to make.  I used parmesan cheese, sesame seeds, and poppy seeds.  We are going to tweak them to make them cheesier and maybe a little spicy.

Breaded Chicken:  This was made with saltine crackers.  The breading wasn't as, shall we say, flavorful as we thought it would be but it was still nice change to plain chicken.  We are going to try to make this recipe a little better also.

Fruit Salad:  I love this stuff!  I had it at Susan's and I liked it so much I asked how to make it.  She gave me the recipe but I wanted to make sure I remembered it correctly so I searched for the recipe online and I made it yesterday.  It was gone within a few hours; Mom and Dad added pecans and walnuts to their servings.

Tomorrow I think I might make some cinnamon, raisin swirl bread.  :)

Good job, Mary. That's what is great about the fruit's easy and you pretty much make it however you want with the fruits you like best. I think MTR added nuts to his one time, but no nuts for me, yuck!

Maybe try adding parmesean cheese to the breading for the chicken. Ritz might be better than saltine crackers. Let me know what you come up with.

Happy cooking
