Grandmas’ Seven Layer Salads

Seven layer salad is an old recipe that has taken many twists and turns through time.  I confess I don’t really know the origins of this recipe (and I’m not currently looking up, as I’d like to keep my “Grandma memories” of this salad intact).  I know this as the “ladies picnic salad” and it nearly always had a showing at outdoor get togethers.  It can be made the night before.

I actually have 2 versions of this recipe which are nearly identical.  The difference:  One from Grandma Brubaker from Rockford has an 8th layer, and the other from Grandma Erbe from Peoria stays at 7 layers.

The recipes are light, easy, and every time I show up with it (which I usually make/bring it when I’m in a pinch for time) everyone finishes it completely.  Enjoy!!

At NCAR and UCAR, we want to have an inclusive, diverse, and legally sound web and digital presence. Captioning benefits people who are deaf or hard of hearing, people who speak English as a second language, users with cognitive disabilities, and anyone working in a noisy environment. Providing captions and transcriptions for our virtual meetings is one of the first steps to creating more inclusive meetings for people with these types of disabilities.

“Over 5% of the world’s population--or 466 million people--have disabling hearing loss (432 million adults and 34 million children)” (World Health Organization). This free webinar by 3Play Media will cover:

·      How to live caption Zoom

·      Taking your Zoom recording and captioning it

·      Tips for getting started with captioning

·      Benefits of providing captions for your events.

Register for Zoom Captioning 101: How to Caption Your Live Streams and Recordings on August 13 at Noon MT.

Classic Salmon Oscar

“The ‘Oscar’ components consist of asparagus and lobster or crab meat topped with Béarnaise sauce. It originated with veal and through the years has been combined with numerous other proteins ... I love the simplicity. The flavors complement the protein with the sweetness of the crab, the earthiness of the asparagus, the smooth butter profile of the sauce.”

Spicy Peanut Chicken

I love peanuts… chicken… and spice. I cannot remember if I created this recipe or twisted it from another. What I can tell you is that my handwritten version is hysterical! It looks like I wrote it while I was making it -- or just after I completed it, so I wouldn’t forget what I did. It’s amazing how you scramble to write things down after you wing it for dinner and it turns out to be fantastic!

This peach & blueberry pie recipe was given to me by my cousin, Jeni … I have NO IDEA where it came from beyond her, but it’s tastebud twisting yummy! So the next time you find yourself with a few extra peaches that you haven’t eaten quickly enough (I know, I know -- yeah, right, extra peaches), I highly recommend you give this pie a taste test! It’s DELICIOUS! Enjoy!!!
