Another set back

We were blessed to have Josh's dad and step-mom stop by for dinner on their way home from Maryland back to Sebastian tonight. Since Josh's Dad's birthday is the 31st Josh made Pierogis and Kielbasa and Cabbage and I made Cucumbers & Onions with Sour Cream. This was a meal that Josh's Polish great-grandmother used to make so we thought that might be a nice thing to do. Then for dessert I made my grandmother's Ritz Cracker Pie. HMMMMMM.

Add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to 3 egg whites. Beat until stiff. Gradually add 1 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in gently 1 cup chopped walnuts and 20 Ritz crackers (coarsely crumbled). Put in 8-inch well greased pie pan.
Bake 325 degrees for 30 minutes. When cooled refrigerate for several hours. Before serving top with whipped cream and strawberries.
Another set-back for Weigh Wednesday. I should go walk.

I made that cracker pie back when we lived on Bradford Ct...aka MicroBurst Quad. I wanted something sweet and didn't have anything on hand....until I found this recipe and realized I had the right ingredients for a pie. I didn't add the strawberries, though....great, healthy touch.

I am keeping your site up while surfing the net for free embroidery patterns.

Eric would love to come over for dinner if that's what you're serving. So when will that be?

You can also bring it all here and we could entertain you.

Sounds Yummy. I'm interested in the cucumber & onion salad with sour cream. Are those the only 3 ingredients? It sounds similar to a recipe my neighbor use to make when I was younger and have been trying to locate the the recipe.

If pierogi's is all it will take to get ya'll up to Jax, we need to make a date! But wait til I finish the Bell book. It's one that demands discussion.
