Tuesday Tidbits & Two Recipes
Sent: December 8, 2009
Hi Stitchers -
We had a really fun time at our Holiday Stitch-In this past Saturday and I have two recipes to share with you - both were Yummy! Although "Pineapple Casserole" may sound like a dessert, it's not. It was a delicious side dish with the ham we served. I would suggest using pineapple "tidbits" instead of chunks though. I've used them to substitute for other recipes as well and just like the smaller pieces. The spinach casserole was quickly gone! Tonia & I were at the end of the line so we split the last little bit and I would have gone back for seconds except there were none!
We've had a lot of people tell us they will be Stitching Along with us next year. I have a registration form for you to fill out and will try to get it on the website this week (I don't know how to get it there yet!). If you want to go ahead and register, send me an email with StitchALong in the subject line and I will email the Registration form to you. We've got forms in the shop if you want to come in to register. If you didn't get a chance to read last week's article about the Stitch-A-Long for 2010, click StitchALong. We're also talking about having a monthly Stitch-A-Long one weekday a month - maybe on the first Friday of each month. We're still in the planning phase so don't put it in Ink yet! We'll let you know soon though!
I've added a lot of pictures of the pieces that Tonia has been framing over the last few months. See them in the FramingGallery. As you can see, she's been busy!
Thanks to Jeanette & Sherri, here are the two delicious recipes!
Pineapple Casserole (Jeanette Peek)
2 small cans chunk pineapple, drained
1/2 c - 3/4 c sugar
5 Tbsp self rising flour
1 1/2 c cheddar cheese, shredded
1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
1 stick butter, melted
Put pineapple on bottom of dish.
Mix sugar & flour and sprinkle over the pineapple.
Sprinkle cheese, then crushed crackers on top.
Drizzle butter over all
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.
If you double the recipe, it fills a 9x13 casserole. Jeanette said she crushed the crackers while they were still in the sleeve - great time (and mess) saver!
Spinach Casserole (Sherri Rigby)
2 boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained (reserve 1/2 cup of juice)
1/4 cup butter
1 med onion, chopped
2 Tbsp flour
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp celery salt
1 tsp worcestire sauce
2 blocks cheddar jack cheese, shredded
1 cup evaporated milk
In skillet, saute onions in butter. Add flour, mix and stir for one minute. Add spices, cheese, & evaporated milk. Stir until mixed well and cheese is melted. Add spinach & reserved juice, mixing well.
Place in greased baking dish and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
