    Desserts....Christmas Divinity

    Christmas Divinity (I LOVE divinity!!!!)

    2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup white corn syrup
    1 egg white stiffly beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 cup broken nut meats (optional)
    Pinch of salt
    Food coloring (optional)

    Beat the egg white in a large bowl and set aside. In a saucepan, boil the sugar, water and syrup while stirring gently. The mixture is done at 235 degrees or if it forms a soft ball when a tablespoon full is dropped into cold water. Pour the mixture over the beaten egg white, beating continually. Add vanilla, nuts and a pinch of salt. Add a few drops of red or green food coloring if desired. Beat this mixture until it is almost hard, then drop by the teaspoonful onto waxed paper.

    Makes about 35 - 40 pieces.

    Appetizer- No Name

    Ok, this is what my kids always ask for. Its not really a recipe, but here goes.

    Soften a 4oz pkg of cream cheese. Spread cream cheese on slender-sliced meat (the really thin lunch meat, ALDI has it for abot 30 cents a package, dang I miss ALDI!!!) Place a pickle spear in the middle and roll up. Thats it, thats all there is to it. My kids eat these over anything else I make.
    Some mornings it's not worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.
