August food storage recipes


1 cup diced onion

2 clove garlic, minced

2 tablespoon olive oil

2 cups lentils, rinsed

4 cups chicken stock

1 tsp ground cumin

2 cups mild taco sauce or chili sauce

2 chopped green or red sweet bell peppers


1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

2 cup grated zucchini

Fry up onion and garlic, (then add zucc if desired). Add washed & drained lentils, stock, cumin and taco sauce. Boil 15-20 mins. Add peppers and cook liquid out further and lentils to desired softness.

Tortilla Shells (good for about 16)

Monterey Jack Cheese



Sour Cream


Fresh tomatoes

APPLE CRISP (works with other fruit too)

8 cups peeled and cut apple (peach, rhubarb or berries work great too)

With apples, throw in 2T lemon juice and toss as you cut up the apples to keep them from turning brown.

Put fruit in a 9x13 or two 8x8's -which works great for giving one to a neighbor :)


¾ c sugar

1 ¾ c water

3 T cornstarch

1 ½ tsp vanilla

Cook until thickened & clear

Pour sauce over the fruit


¾ c melted marg

1 c flour

1 ¾ c oats

1 c brown sugar

3 tsp cinnamon

Mix until crumbly and spread on fruit (don't mix too much – you want it "chunky" - not a solid glob!). Put the 9x13 on a larger cookie sheet to catch spills in the oven :).

Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.


NOTE: With peaches I find I need to add about ½ T cornstarch when making the sauce and I like to add ½ tsp nutmeg

Mounds Brownies

1/2 cup butter or margarine
2-3 T cocoa
3 eggs
7 oz coconut
1 1/4 cups sugar
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 cup flour
12 oz milk chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350˚.
Mix butter, eggs, sugar, flour and cocoa together.
Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake 25 minutes.
Do not over bake. While the brownie layer is baking
mix together the coconut and sweetened condensed
milk. When the brownie layer is done pour the
coconut mixture on top. Bake for 15 minutes
or until it is golden around the edges.
As soon as you take the pan out of the oven sprinkle
the chocolate chips on top. When they are melted
spread over the brownies. Cool before serving.
