    I'd be happy to.

    Lost and Found Fruit Salad
    1-20oz can crushed pineapple
    3 Tablespoons flour
    3 Tablespoons sugar
    2 eggs
    1 Tablespoon butter
    1 cup mini marshmallows
    2 small bananas (sliced)
    1/2 cup pecans (coarsely chopped)
    Maraschino cherries (drained)

    Drain the pineapple well and SAVE THE JUICE.
    Combine sugar and flour, mix in the saved juice from the pineapple.
    Beat the eggs and add them to the mix. Add the butter.
    Cook over low to med/low heat to thicken. It is important to stir constantly because when this stuff decided to thicken, it does it fast, and will scorch at the drop of a hat. You want it to be almost a runny pudding consistency. (When you pull the spoon across the bottom of the pan, it should leave a clear space for a moment, before slowly filling back in. Remove from heat and add to other ingredients (except the cherries) in a large bowl. Stir well and then chill. Add the cherries only when you are ready to serve, or it will turn the whole thing pink.

    I usually make it the day before so the flavors get good and mixed and the marshmallows turn almost spongelike.

    OH MY HEAVENS KITTEN YOU BUSTED MY GUT!!!! Ba ha ha ha HA AHA AHAHAHA!!!!! Good thread, getting lotsa idears!! I love cooking for family!

    Oriental Salad is my favorite to mix with all the fattening stuff, it's crisp and fresh!
    1 Cabbage chopped finely
    1 small can of diced water chestnuts
    1 cup of fresh bean sprouts
    1 cup of celery diced
    1/2 bunch of green onions diced
    1/2 cup of roasted almond slivers
    1/2 + cup of sunflower seeds
    Mix all together.

    Dressing
    1/3 cup of GOOD olive oil
    4 teaspoons of rice vinegar
    1/2 " of salt
    2 " of sugar
    1/2 to 1 " of pepper
    Mix together then mix with above salad.
    Top with 1 package of crushed uncooked ramen noodles.
    (you can add a little of the oriental seasoning package in the dressing for added flavor)
    I eat this all the time!

    My Dessert:

    Cherry cheesecake bars with streusel topping.
    1 teaspoon of vanilla
    1 bag of frozen cherries thawed cut into 1/4ths and drained well
    2 large eggs
    1/2 cup, and 2 table spoons of sugar divided
    1 cup of butter softened
    1/2 cup of walnut bits (optional)
    2 packages of cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    2 cups all purpose flour

    Preheat oven to 350
    Combine flour, brown sugar, walnuts, cut in butter until crumbly. Press into 13X9 baking pan, (greased and floured) Bake 15 mins or until lightly browned.

    Beat cream cheese with the 1/2 cup of sugar with mixer at medium speed until smooth, add eggs and vanilla, stir. Pour over crust.

    Stir together cherry bits and the 2 tablespoons of sugar (you can add cinnamon to taste if you like it). Drop evenly over cream cheese.

    Topping:
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup all purpose flour
    1/2 cup quick oats
    1/2 cup soft butter
    Stir together until crumbly, bigger crumbles the better!

    Sprinkle evenly over cherries and cream cheese and bake 30 mins or until it's set.
    YUMMY!!

    We do a normal turkey (NOT my Mom's! She cooks it till it's jerky!)
    Green beans cooked in a crock pot with brown sugar and bacon OMG!!
    Ham (gross for me too! But the kid loves it.)
    Stuffing (never touch it, they use the box stuff)
    Homemade rolls (Grammy does these, drool!)
    Turkey, broccoli, and cheese rice casserole. Wish they made cream of turkey!
    Pumpkin soup
    Salad
    Corn
    Mashed Potatoes
    Squash either roasted or in a cream sauce and baked till golden with garlic and a crispy crust, YUMMY!
    And a variety of new things we all try!

    Snacks are oysters, pickle and good cheese trays, homemade salsa, stuffed dates and olives... Desserts are all the normal pies (don't care for them), my cheesecake, cookies, fudge, walnut cake with cream cheese icing, a dessert we call Fred (better than sex), it's got cream cheese in it too (Lemme know if you want that recipe)! Geez that's alotta creme cheese!!

    Hope you all have a GREAT ONE and don't die from heart attacks!!! Good Luck Alex!

    The good thing about my favorite is when it comes to Jack Daniels you don't really need to wait until dinner....
