Subject: tea cakes

My Grandmother used to make the most wonderful "Tea Cakes"
this is the closest I have to it, that I copied from one of
her old handwritten cookbooks.
2 eggs
2/3 cups butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
Beat eggs until well mixed, add butter & vanilla. Add sugar and
stir. Dough will be soft. Add flour. Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls
on ungreased cookie sheet. Dip glass in sugar and stamp cookie to
flatten out.
Bake @ 400 degrees about 8 minutes. Cookies will be thick and
soft. bake until just golden.


Subject: Meat Loaf & Mac-& Cheese


2 lbs. ground beef
8 baby carrots, minced, (or food processed)
1 large onion, finely chopped, (or food processed)
1 medium white potato, peeled and finely chopped,
(or food processed)
3 cloves garlic, minced, (or use 2 tsps. from a jar)
1 cup flavored bread crumbs, (or left-over cooked rice,
or plain oatmeal)
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsps. ketchup
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. Soy sauce
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1 Tbsp. dried parsley, powdered
1/2 tsp. dried mint, powdered
In a large bowl, mix everything together except the
meat, (it LOOKS horrible, but forget that!). Break
off hunks of ground meat, and press into the mixture.
When all the meat is in the mixture, knead it through
as you would bread dough, until you can't distinguish
the ingredients, and it "cleans" the bowl. Shape it
into the loaf pan, (or whatever you're cooking it
in......), and "frost" the surface lightly but completely
with ketchup.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350, for one hour. POUR OFF
THE FAT IMMEDIATELY, if you are not using a "meat loaf
pan" which drains. If it isn't very slightly crusty
around the edges, continue to bake, in 10-minute
intervals, until the slight crust is obtained. It can
also be baked in a microwave oven, (in a microwave-safe
bowl, of course), for one hour, at 60% power. You still
have to pour off the fat. Let cool a bit before slicing.
(You can use the fat as a basis for gravy. What FLAVOR!
This is fantastic the next day, and re-heats very nicely
in the microwave oven!


MACARONI & CHEESE, (This AIN'T for dieters!!)

One-half pound each Extra Sharp Cheddar, and Jarlsberg
cheeses, grated together
2-and-1/2 cups, (uncooked), elbow macaroni
2 large eggs and one Tbsp. Wondra flour, beaten into
3 cups milk
Salt and pepper
Cook and drain the pasta. Lightly butter the sides and
bottom of the cooking vessel, (pan or baking dish). Put
in one-half the cooked pasta. Sprinkle with salt and
pepper. Cover with one-half the grated cheese. Cover
that with the remainder of the pasta, salt and pepper,
then the rest of the cheese. Pour the milk-and-egg
mixture over these layers. Dot the top with chunks of
butter. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 for 30 minutes,
or until the cheese on top is mottled gold and brown, and
the butter is bubbling up around the edges. This will be
juicy, but not soupy. If you like mac-and-cheese with
MELTED cheese, this recipe isn't for you.

Bon Appetit!
