ANTIPASTO SALAD ALASKAN STYLE
1 pkg of reindeer sausage, hot link’s or kielbasa or your favorite link sausage
3/4 cup Italian salad dressing – oil style
6 cups of torn or cut lettuce
8 cups of other types of red and leafy lettuce
4 tomatoes cut in small wedges
1 peeled sliced cucumber
1 peeled sliced carrot
1/2 cup black olives
4 sliced green onions
4 to 6 oz of Feta cheese or other favorite
Slice links and cook slightly in skillet. Drain well on towel. Arrange lettuce on a large serving platter. I use a meat platter.
Top with the vegetables and sausage in a nice pattern. Top with Feta cheese. Chili if not using right away. Pour dressing
over salad and serve immediately. Pass the platter around and offer more dressing. Eat with sour dough bread and butter.
CAJUN CHICKEN SALAD
Poach 6 medium skinlees, boneless chicken breast halves in a skillet with:

GRANNIE ANNIE’S CHERRY-RHUBARB COBBLER
I put several recipes together because, once again, I did not have all the ingredients on hand for any one of the recipes.
This turned out so good, I have to pass this along. I have given out many recipes of this also.
This makes three round cake pans full. I give one away, freeze one and of course we eat the other. Use the foil throw-away
In a large bowl:
2 cups flour
2 cups oats
2 cups brown sugar
2 stick ( 1 cup) butter cut in small chunks
Stir dry ingredients to combine and rub the butter into the mix with hands. Mix well. Divide the mix in half.
Set aside half for the topping. Press other half into the three cake pans
In the large bowl:
4 cups diced rhubarb
2 cups fresh strawberries, cut in half
1 30oz can cherry pie filling
1 20oz can crushed pineapple – drain the liquid off.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup almond extract
Mix well with large spoon. with one cup measure, evenly divide the rhubarb-cherry mixture into three pans. Top with the remaining dry cobbler mix.
I put crushed walnuts on ours. Place foil on bottom rack of oven (to catch the drips) and place the three pans full on the top rack. Bake 350° for one hour until browned and crusty around the edges. Serve with Vanilla Ice cream or whipped cream from the can.
I am sure the King and Queen would love this. We sure do!
