    I've been taking this lately (my own concoction) & they clean it up:

    EASY SHRIMP SALAD!

    3 pounds prepared macaroni salad from your local deli (or you can cook your own 1# box elbow macaroni to pkg. directions, drain, cool, and add about 1 cup mayo & 1/2 cup celery diced)

    1 pound frozen salad shrimp, thawed & rinsed (pre-cooked, shelled, deveined, and de-tailed variety)

    1/2 cup chopped fresh green pepper

    3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped (optional)

    1/2 cup chopped onion

    1/4 cup prepared cocktail sauce

    1 regular can pineapple chunks (drained)

    1 tablespoon sugar (or sweeten to taste)

    1 tablespoon dill weed

    salt & pepper to taste


    Combine the above ingredients and chill overnight (to let flavors mingle). This is easy, delicious, does not heat up your kitchen, and is absolutely great to take to church picnics. Enjoy!

    Tip: To keep chilled, I serve it in a stainless steel bowl, sitting down inside a larger stainless steel bowl, with those flexible freezer Kool Packs underneath the serving bowl. It keeps for hours. (Ice will work, too, but melts quicker.)

    massdakian cincy style chili

    3lb of cincinnati beef
    2lb of Italian canned tomatoes (crushed)
    1lb of chill spice (cincinnati style spice)
    5lb of massdak's garden hot peppers with seeds intact
    cook all this together for about an hour when the hot peppers are busting open and thoroughly cooked into the chili.
    next invite lots and lots of liberals mainly the proactive type that has little experience with hot foods. be sure to feed them liberally.

    I usually try and make something different each time. I usually take some vegetable, green beans cooked with ham and onions, or yellow squash with peppers,and onions. Last time though I did a great baked chicken that I cut up and added a buch of sliced onions,a nd lime juice and garlic. It was really good, I'll be making that again.

    Wow, good topic. We have a fellowship meal at least monthly and picnics fairly often as well. Here in Hawaii, our church is IFB and fairly conservative, but has more diversity than any other church I have ever been in, which is awesome! About 75% is made up of military so the turnover rate is fairly high, but keep in mind the military have been worldwide and many have wives from all over the world. Also, the other 25% is local Hawaiians and other Micronesian islands such as the Chukenese, Yap, etc......sorry if I didn't spell them right.

    Anyway, back to the food, our meals have a bit of everything in the world from kaluia pork to lumpia rolls, all sort of exotic island food and of course the regular chicken, beef, and mashed potatos. I love being in such a church with so many cultures and some who don't even speak English very well or at all, but yet have the same common thread of Jesus Christ in our heart. We recently had a around the world Sunday where we had different rooms set up of food and decoration. We had a American room that had grits, chicken, banana pudding, and other American foods. Then there was the European room with German and Italy, and England food. There was a Hispanic room with awesome Mexican type foods and many other local rooms that contained Hawaiian food, Korean food, and on and on. I love all food and these fellowship meals and picnics that we have are rarely miss any of them.

    Quick funny story: My kids, 12 and 9 are pretty picky when it comes down to food and stick to the chicken and potatoes at these meals for the most part. One of the around the world rooms (Micronesian)had a pigs head right on the table and it happened to be the first room my son went into and it put him off the rest of the evening and he went hungry just because he saw the pigs head...........

    Sorry for going on and on. I hope I hit some of the key areas I was meant to discuss.

    God bless and Aloha!
