ENID, Okla. —
Jane’s Tex-Mex Spaghetti
• 1 large can of Hormel chili without beans
• 1 jar salsa, strength depends on your family’s likes
• 1⁄2 pound Velveeta cheese or grated cheddar cheese
• Cooked spaghetti
Heat chili and salsa together. Add cheese. Serve over cooked and drained spaghetti. Toss all together for a great casserole dish. (Sometimes I bake it and sometimes I serve it straight from the kettle.)
If you bake it, cook it only long enough to heat through in 350-degree oven. Serve with crusty bread and a green salad. Yum! Yum! Now for this great dessert shared by another friend from rehab:
Anna’s Tropical Dump Cake
• 1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple
• 1 15-ounce can tropical fruit (not the same as fruit cocktail)
• 1 package orange cake mix
• 11⁄2 sticks of butter
• 1⁄2 cup instant oatmeal
• 1 cup coconut flakes
Dump both fruits and juices into 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Pour the dry cake mix over the fruit and spread out evenly. Mix oatmeal and coconut and sprinkle over cake mixture with fingers. Melt butter and pour on top evenly. It should cover the entire cake. Bake in 350-degree oven for one hour. Serve with ice cream. What could better than this?
Enjoy the little things of life, for one day, you may look back and realize they are the big things.
