I'll have to expand the kids' taste bud horizons.  Grin

The chocolate ones should be an easy sell. Probably a good idea to keep the sangra just for the adults though.

I'll go ahead and post one recipe I sent and one that didn't get included.


Pan-Fried Salmon with Cucumber/Radish Salad


4 6-ounce center-cut salmon fillets (about 1-inch thick), with or without skin
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1 English cucumber (seedless, comes plastic-wrapped) or 2 regular
5 to 6 radishes
jalapeno
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
Pinch of sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
teaspoon dark sesame oil
Freshly ground black pepper

Bring salmon to room temperature 10 minutes before cooking. Toast the sesame seeds in a small dry skillet over medium heat, stirring and tossing, until fragrant and a shade or two darker (about 4 minutes). Pour into a small bowl to cool.

Quarter the cucumber lengthwise and thinly slice crosswise. (If using regular cucumbers, peel and seed first). Put in a medium bowl. Trim and discard radish tops, then thinly slice the radishes and add to the cucumbers. Stem, seed and finely chop the jalapeno. Peel the ginger and finely grate using a rasp or fine-hole grate to yield about 1 teaspoon. Add jalapeno and ginger to the salad and toss. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, the toasted sesame seeds, vinegar, sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and the sesame oil. Toss the salad and set aside.

Heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium-low heat. Season salmon with some salt and black pepper. Add remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan; raise heat to medium high. Place salmon, skin side up, in the pan. Cook, without moving fish for about 4 minutes. Turn fillets over with a metal spatula and cook until fish feels firm to the touch, about 3 more minutes.

Spoon salad onto the middle of plates and place a fillet on top to serve.

Note: Im not a fan of excessive caution in the kitchen, but when working with the jalapeno I strongly recommend wearing gloves. Pepper oil will stay on your fingers for days and youll be sorry every time you touch your mouth or gasp! your eyes.


Christmas Fudge

2/3 cup (1 small can) undiluted evaporated milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 2/3 cups sugar
teaspoon salt
2 cups minature marshmallows
1 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
cup chopped pistachio nuts
cup crushed candy canes

Mix evaporated milk, butter, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. (Begin timing when mixture bubbles.) Remove from heat and add marshmallows, chocolate chips and nuts. Stir briskly until marshmallows are melted. Pour into a buttered 8-inch square pan and sprinkle with crushed candy cane. Cool thoroughly and cut into squares.

Note: My moms been making this since well before I was born. My sister says its sacrilege that I will crush red and green candy canes for the top, but I think the green picks up nicely on the pistachios when you cut it.

So I'm going thru my recipes tonite & I found a book (that does have some really great stuff in it) I purchased at an American Indian PowWow down here in Florida years ago & I opened it up to see for some "different" recipes. Here's what I found:

Locusts aka: V-Le

Gather locust (cicada) at night, then pick up those out of the shell, remove shell from others.  Do not let the sun shine on them or they will spoil.  Wash & then fry in a small amount of grease.  Eat hot or cold.

Wow   Shocked  There are also recipes for Ground Hog, Opossum, Raccoon & Yellow Jackets (bees) Soup.   Shocked

I won't be putting those in my recipe swap...don't worry Joolz. 

Thank goodness...GROSS!!!

Recipes hmm...
Mini Quiche-cheaper than buying the frozen ones and taste much better!!

Shell:
1/4 cup butter
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup flour

Filling:
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1Tablespoon dried onions
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
( you can add onion, mushrooms, peppers, meat, etc..)

 Work the butter, cream cheese, and flour together; form into a ball. Flatten
the ball and use a knife to score into 24 sections, then form into 24 little balls.
Press each ball into one cup of a mini muffin tin (Pampered chef sells a
wooden dowel thing that is great for this). Cover with plastic wrap and
refrigerate overnight. Next day, combine filling ingredients and pour into
prepared shells bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

To Freeze: When cool, freeze on a cookie sheet and put in a plastic bag. To
reheat, bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.

I received from dragonslair!!!!!!!!!
It is fabulous! I love it! Thank you!!
She included her kids recipes too! I love it.
Now I definitely have swap anxiety, mine won't match up to how good hers is.  Tongue

But I'll try to have pictures up tonight, and if not tonight then tomorrow when I get home from school.

I am super excited to try out these recipes!!

(By the way, drangonslair where did you find the cute little baking charms? and the little quotes? Did you make them your self? I love them!) I swear my whole town does not believe in having food/cooking themed stickers, or anything. Blah

Corporate office (Wal-Mart) wants it ALL out by the end of the year. Ours is expanding electronics.

I've wondered about those kinds of decisions from time to time.  I mean, doesn't everyone HAVE about everything electronic they could possibly need by now?  There's got to be a maximum amount of electronic equipment that any sane person would want to have lying around.

Now craft stuff gets used up. You HAVE to buy more....  Grin

I tracked the package I sent & it states that Joolz rev'd it.  Once I confirm, I will post some pics...don't want to spoil the surprise  Shocked...

BTW... I went to my Walmart today to take advantage of the bargains &, just my luck, NOTHING was on sale.  I asked the girl in Fabric & Crafts about the dept. closing & she said she hadn't heard anything.  She also said that you can write to the corp. office & protest on behalf of your store & if they get enough complaints...they won't close the department down.  It's worth a shot... I get the greatest bargains on fabric & crafty brick-brac there.   Sad
