TRIED AND TASTED RECIPES
Country Fried Cabbage
5 strips bacon
1 medium head cabbage, sliced into large pieces
1 small yellow onion, chopped
Salt and Pepper
Fry bacon in skillet over medium high heat until crisp. Remove bacon, reserving the drippings. Drain on paper towels. Add cabbage and onions to skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When tender, crumble in bacon. Mix well and serve immediately.
(I use more bacon, just not all the drippings. This is so easy and delicious too!)

Line a 13” x 9” pan with whole graham crackers. Melt butter in saucepan and add sugar. Beat egg and milk together; add to butter mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add nuts, coconut and 1 cup graham cracker crumbs. Pour over crackers in pan. Cover with another layer of whole graham crackers. Prepare topping
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 tbsp. (1/2 stick) butter)
