California Crab Salad  

So Easy but So Good!

Mix first three ingredients together and then add Miracle Whip to desired consistancy. Refrigerate over night and then serve on bed of lettuce or with crackers. Can be served as main dish. In summer I use vine ripe tomatoes, cut them like a blossom and fill with crab salad for a delicious luncheon salad.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Eggs should be completely set. Cut into appropriate size squares. Serve warm or cold.

This is simple to make and can be kept warm wrapped in several layers of newspaper to be served at a function.

Skillet Cabbage

This Is The Best Cabbage Recipe Ever!

Melt butter in a large skillet. Add chopped veggies. Cook uncovered until tender. It will brown a bit if you give it time. You need to start with a large skillet full as it will reduce by about 1/2 with cooking. Tom likes to put vinegar over his (must be his English Roots).
