    I would make chili in the crockpot and a salad. I would prepare the fixings for the salad and place them in plastic bags to throw into the greens right before serving. An easy one is a mandarin orange salad. Leave off the dressing until time to serve. I get raves every time I serve this salad. It consists of cans of drained Mandarin Oranges, toasted sliced almonds, thinly sliced or chopped red onion and Marie's Poppyseed dressing. Cornbread served with honey and butter on the side could also be made in advance to round out the meal.

    Here's a simple dessert......

    Pink Cloud Dessert
    1-large bowl
    1-spatula
    1-medium size Aluminum pan ( you can use a 9 x 13 dish but I usually use the throw away pans so I don't have to wait for the dish.
    ( normally there's never any of this dessert left....honest ! )

    1 can of Cherry Pie Filling
    1 can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
    1 large 16-20 oz Cool Whip ( thawed )
    1 can of Crushed Pineapple ( don't drain )
    1/2 cup finely chopped Pecans

    In large bowl .....mix in order given.
    Place in 9"x13" pan or aluminum pan.
    Chill for 2-3 hours prior to serving.

    ( you can use store brands ...OR if you want, there's a homemade recipe for Sweetened Condensed Milk online ( All Recipes is the site I think )

    I usually purchase the canned indgredients ahead of time and put them in the fridge. This way, if I need a dessert "QUICK" all I have to do is to open up the chilled cans, pour them into the large bowl, stir well, and then add to the aluminum throw away pans.

    I have made this for school functions for my kids, church potlucks....family dinners, holiday dish to pass....and everyone loves it.

    I don't use walnuts or any other flavor pie filling......to me it doesn't taste as good with other flavors....but you are welcome to try it !

    Eggs Eldorado

    1 large jar of Cheez Whiz
    1/2 cup milk
    6 hard boiled eggs....sliced
    1 small onion chopped fine
    1 small jar of pimentos ( this is optional, just for color )
    1 teaspoon parsley
    1 cup of diced ham
    1 cup of crumbled Bacon


    1 package of English Muffins ( toasted & buttered )


    In a LARGE Skillet
    Cook onions until tender. ( I cook the onions in water and a little bit of margarine til tender )
    ***Add the ham & Bacon ( sometimes I cook the ham & bacon ahead of time )

    In the microwave combine Cheese Whiz & Milk, stir till blended remove from heat when mixed well
    Add the Cheese Whiz /Milk mixture to the ham,bacon, & onions.
    Add the Pimentos & Parsley
    Stir well.
    Add the sliced hard-boiled eggs......Stir gently....mix well.

    Serve on toasted English Muffins. Enjoy
    ( This is an awesome meal on a cold night....VERY FILLING ....one English Muffin per person is usually a good portion.)

    *** You can use just HAM or Just BACON....
    *** You can also substitute 2 cups of cooked Chicken OR 1 pound of ground beef ( already cooked and
    drained. ( using ground beef is the least fav of my family.....but it's good just the same!

    Serve this with toss salad
    Cookie & Jello for dessert.

    My dad found this recipe on the back of a Cheese Whiz Jar in the early 1970's....it became a favorite of our family. I used to make it on "Casserole" night ( Thursdays ) after I married and had a family of my own.

    Lorie,
    Here's a good white sauce I use.
    In a small, heavy saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat.
    2. Blend 2 tablespoons of flour into the melted butter.
    3. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
    4. Cook over low heat, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes. Cooking for this length of time will minimize 'flour' taste.
    5. Slowly add 1 cup of milk, stirring constantly.
    6. Continue cooking slowly until smooth and thickened.
    7. For thin white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of flour. Thin white sauce is used in cream soups.
    8. For thick white sauce, follow the instructions above, but use 3 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of flour. Thick white sauce is used in soufflés.

    Just be sure that no one is allergic to seafood. I'm aware of this because my DH is and we have been to dinners that have not considered this problem. We have also encountered this problem in restaurants, where as a garnish a stuffed clam or shrimp has been placed on his plate with his steak.

    White sauce is pretty easy... Just remember... 222... 2 Tablespoons of Butter, 2 Tablespoons flour, 2 cups of milk.

    Melt the butter, add the flour and wisk till smooth, slowly add milk while wisking. Add a pinch of dry mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer at least on minute while wisking. If it thickens too fast, add milk a bit at time. If you need a cheese sauce add cheese after it simmers one minute. Stir cheese in slowly til melted.
