Re:Swiss Oatmeal (served cold)
Posted: 09/25/2008 09:32:00 AM
We went there last year and my husband loved this, too. Here's what I have come up with:
1 c oatmeal
, 1 c plain yogurt,
1/2 c skim milk
, 1 T honey,
1 apple - chopped
, 1 banana - sliced,
2 T raisins,
2 T currants,
2 T dried cherries.
Mix the oatmeal, yogurt, milk and honey in a bowl and refrigerated until ready to eat, up to 2 days. Add remaining ingredients and eat! Let me know if you try it and if you think it is even close. I have seen some people use apple cider instead of the milk for a different take.

I use cod most often. Sometimes I use my grill pan with olive oil, salt and pepper. This works great for fish tacos. Other times I will boil the fish until it flakes, then place it in a baking dish with butter and seasonings to get some of the liquid off.

I have made a slush similar to the Peachy Summer Slush recipe (http://www.recipetips.com/recipe-cards/u--4017/peachy-summer-slush.asp) but with strawberries instead of the peaches. And it will keep in the freezer for some time unless you drink it too quickly!

We had a Holland but I traded it for an Aussie. The Holland didn't give it that "grilled" flavor, more like baking it. I do love my Aussie grill and it has a griddle on half of it that I use for vegetables.

Peanuts, chocolate, and toffee. It doesn't get much better than that.

My girls love meatball subs. So, I think I will brown some meatballs and toss them in spaghetti sauce. Put them on a hoagie, sprinkle with cheese and broil for a few minutes.

Oh, that's the worst! I have done that by completely forgetting to turn the crock pot on. My husband said the chicken I threw in last night with mushrooms and carrots was very good - the dry mushroom soup mix gave it deep, almost wine flavor. I need something quick for tonight so I think I'm going to make a stromboli sandwich with some refrigerated pizza dough I have.

I put something in the crock pot, too. I layered carrots, frozen chicken breasts, sliced mushrooms and covered it with a mixture of mushroom soup mix, water and sour cream. I think I'll throw it over some biscuits. It always makes me happy when supper is ready and waiting when I get home!

I'm going to make the Smothered Pork Chops. I've made these before and even my kids love it! Better yet, they can be made in less than an hour with ingredients I usually have on hand - no need to stop at the grocery store.

I have gone to a couple of different businesses where you can make 6-8 meals in about 2 hours for approximately $200, depending on some of your choices. Everything is ready and waiting - the correct measurement in each of the ingredients. This works out pretty nice to have these on hand for rushed evenings. Most meals do have to be thawed in the refrigerator for a day before using. My two sisters and I also made our own meals and exchanged. I would recommend going to the business as it turned out to be more expensive and very time consuming to triple the meals.
