5eggs

Celery, chopped

Boil macaroni in salted water, until desired tenderness. Boil eggs in salted water, until hard boiled (the egg shells come off easier). Drain cooked macaroni.

Add macaroni and mix enough so that it is moist, and a little garlic salt, mix all together; then add paprika on top.

Italian fried cauliflower

BY valerie mansour-allen

1head cauliflower, cut into large flowerets (need a flat side)

6eggs

1/2cup Parmesan cheese, may need more to thicken

1teaspoon dried basil

1teaspoon granulated garlic

1/2teaspoon dried parsley

Salt and pepper, to taste

Olive oil for pan frying, enough to over bottom of pan 1/4-inch

Steam cauliflower until just tender. Do not overcook. Drain and dry out on paper towels. Mix next 6 ingredients in a bowl. Add more cheese if needed to make it thick enough to stick to cauliflower. Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet. Dip flowerets in egg mixture. Fry in skillet until golden brown on each side. Add more olive oil as needed. Drain on paper towels.

CANNED HOT PEPPERS

by TOM REPULA

2quarts water

1quart vinegar

1cup salt

Peppers

Olive oil

Garlic (optional)

Italian seasoning (optional)

Boil water, vinegar and salt. Fill quart jars with peppers (I like to add a clove of garlic and some Italian seasoning to each jar). To each quart add 1 tablespoon olive oil then pour brine over peppers leaving 1/2” head space. Be sure the top of the jar is clean and seal with lids and rings that have been boiled. No processing required. Let sit for 48 hours.
