SANDY’S GREEN CHILI
Sometimes I just HAVE to fix this – it is so good and simple
3 to 4 pound pork roast
Boil until well done and tender
Cool and cut into small pieces
2 cans tomato sauce – large cans
1 can water
Salt and garlic salt taste
Jalapeno pepper to your taste
Simmer slowly 2 to 3 hours
Sandy makes this often. Bob makes it different by
adding green chilies, onions, celery. Either way it is so delicious.
SANDY’S CARAMEL CORN
I have this recipe memorized!!
Pop and keep warm 6 quarts of popped corn
In a large saucepan:
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 teas salt
Bring to boil and remove from heat immediately.
1 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
Pour over popcorn, stir until well coated.
Place on buttered cookie sheet. Bake at 250% for 1 hour, stir every 15 minutes.
Note from Grannie Annie:
Add salted peanuts if you like. I have made tons of this and given away just about that much.
This is the very best!!
GINGER’S CHICKEN LASAGNA

1 cup chopped onions
1 tblsp butter
1 envelope Hollandaise sauce –

Ham or a combination of ham and chicken can be used.

OH OH so good!
ELAINE’S RHUBARB UPSIDE DOWN CAKE
My sisters yummy recipe. Rhubarb will be poking through
the ground very soon… quick and tasty!
1 box of two layer yellow or white cake mix
1 cup sugar or half brown and half white
1 cup cream-half and half or canned milk
4 to 5 cups fine sliced rhubarb
Prepare cake mix according to directions. Pour into a oiled and floured 9 x13 pan.
Pour cake mix in pan and pour the rhubarb and sugar over top. Pour cream or canned milk
evenly over all. Bake according to cake box directions BUT it may take longer.
Take out and cool 5 minutes. Loosen with knife and invert onto a serving tray.
Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream is so good on this.
