Oh How I Love To Cook! Not..

It was a day filled with cooking for me. And oh how I hate to cook. I do however consider myself to be a fairly good one. Or so I've been told.Since the Lenten season is upon us it is my week to cook dinner for our congregation. A number of our commitees take this task on from year to year. And so being the good little christian that I am,I volunteered. I started at 6:00 a.m. this morning cooking bacon for my home made sloppy joes. There you go, I gave away my secret ingredient! I cooked about 30 pieces. Chopped four green peppers and three onions. Cooked up 15 lbs. of ground beef and the rest your not getting out of me. However if you are my daughter, and you know who you are,I will send you the recipe. After almost six hours I was done with the sloppy joes. Next project. Cook chicken and brocolli for homemade hot pockets for dinner tonight. Thats no secret. Just cook and chop three boneless skinless chicken breast, add chopped brocolli and ranch dressing. Mix together. On A large baking sheet, flatten four Grands biscuits. Spoon mixture on top, add more dressing if you like. Top that with sliced cheese of your choice. Flatten four more Grands biscuits and put on top. Fold and pinch edges to seal. Brush with egg white that has been blended with a little water. Sprinkle with parmesean cheese and bake at 425 till golden brown. Delicious!! You can fill with anything you like and just be creative. Serve with a salad,very impressive. After dinner I shall start on my first dessert for tomorrow nights dinner. Chocolate pudding dessert. You've probably had it. Pecan crust topped with chocolate ,vanillla puddings mixed with cream cheese and layered with cool whip and more nuts. You know, lots of fat. I think that will be the end of my cooking for the night.I do have a sick teen at home so maybe not. Tomorrow I will make an orange coconut cake for the dinner as well. I hope two desserts will be enough! Until next time, Happy Eating!!!

Oh yes, please send me your sloppy joe recipe! Even if Daniel doesn't eat meat, I'll eat enough for the both of us. Also, what's this orange coconut cake you're making? I want that recipe too. I'm sure your dinner was a hit!
