Recipes from Martha Ruth Leonard
7-oz. can of shrimp
1 can chicken consummé
a heavy, ovenproof skillet. Cook the rice in the butter until it’s the
color of a nice camel’s-hair coat. Add the consommé and onion, cover
the skillet and bake for 35 minutes at 325°. Now, open the can of
shrimp, drain and pour the little rascals in. If you can afford it, two
cans are so much better. Bake for 10 more minutes.
Judy O’Grady’s Ham
First, cook two cups of noodles until they’re tender. Next, grind up:
1 green pepper
1 can condensed cream of mushroom, chicken or celery soup, thinned with 1/4 cup milk
Whistling cheerily, you may now mix everything together, including the noodles, and bake it, covered, in a buttered casserole at 350° for 40 minutes. Remove the cover, sprinkle some crumbs on top, dot with butter and brown it under the broiler.
