Bratwurst Pasta Salad

I found this recipe in one of my vintage cookbooks. It looked good so I had to try it.

So to make it gather:
4 ounces of pasta of your choice (I used shell pasta)
10 ounces of fresh or frozen broccoli
12 ounces fully cooked smoked sliced bratwurst
2 small diced tomatoes
4 sliced green onions
1 t Italian seasoning
1/2 cup Creamy Italian Dressing

Cook your pasta according to package direction, rinse in cold water and drain well.
If using fresh broccoli, cut into one inch pieces and boil in salted water for about 7-9 minutes. If using frozen broccoli cook according to manufactures directions.
Combine all ingredients and chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

If desired, served over lettuce and top with Parmesan cheese.


Tasty Breakfast Eats

I had a mission this weekend to use up the buttermilk my husband bought to make the chicken fried steak. So I made coffee cake, cookies, and a double batch of waffles to finish up the buttermilk.

Some Tasty Eats

 One of my husbands favorite meals is chicken fried steak.  I have not tried it before, so he make some up for dinner one night. It was really good.

Last week I did a post on Making Frozen Flat Bread Pizzas.   We finally had a chance to cook one up and it was delicious. I really liked the light texture of the flat bread.


Finally I made up some buttermilk cookies. There was buttermilk left over from making the chicken fried steak, so I found a recipe in my cookie cook book. My grand daughter was over to visit, so we made them together. It was her idea to add sprinkles and a smiley face.

Making Frozen Flat Bread Pizza

A fundraising idea that had come to mind at our church is to make flat bread pizzas. So I was thinking that we could try it out.

It it took was adding pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings (pepperoni in our case) to flat bread. So far all we did was wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze them. We have not tried baking them yet. When it comes time to bake them, I would bake them at about 400 degree oven for 12 minutes or until the cheese was golden brown.

Overnight Belgian Waffles

Usually if I know I am going to waffles on a Saturday morning, I will make an overnight waffle recipe.
I have a How To Cook Everything cookbook. There is a recipe in there for overnight waffles. However this time I tried the Overnight Belgian Waffles from Food Network. I get The Food Network Magazine and this recipe was in there, along with other breakfast recipes as it was their Big Breakfast issue.


I did something different, instead of maple syrup, I topped my waffle with jam. In this case I used strawberry and apple jelly. I am sure it is just as many calories as syrup.
