    Hello Davarene,
    My church is having their home coming the 28th. "Old Fashioned Day". We are bringing old fashioned recipe meals. I'm wondering what to take as well. Thought I'd get out some of my mother's recipes and see what I can come up with.

    I will probably go to the post of old recipes to see what is available there as well. Whatever it is will be VERY simple or at least quick. LOL
    If I come up with a good idea I post it for you.

    If your Church suppers are like mine, everyone usually takes about the samething. I like to take something different and these are some of the things I take.

    Cornwallace Sweet Potatoes

    3 cups cooked mashed sweet potatoes
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/3 stick butter or margarine, melted
    1/2 cup milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Combine with electric mixer. Put into a greased baking dish. Cover with topping.

    Topping

    1 cup brown sugar
    1/3 cup flour
    1/3 stick butter or margarine, melted
    1/2 cup chopped pecans

    Mix well and sprinkle on top of potatoes. Bake 35 mins at 350°.

    Two Apple salad

    2 apples, diced
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks, drained
    1 cup miniature marshmallows
    2/3 cup flaked coconut
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    1/4 cup raisins
    1/4 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
    2 Tablespoons thinly sliced celery

    In bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and chill for a least 1 hour. Yield; 10-12 servings

    This can be made a larger amount by doubling or tripling the ingredients.

    Chicken Tetrazzini

    3 1/2 C. chopped cooked chicken (or turkey or ham)
    1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
    2/3 c. milk
    1 (16 oz. jar) Alfredo sauce (we used Classico brand)
    12 oz. thin spaghetti, cooked
    1 (10 oz) pkg. frozen petite peas, thawed (we used a store brand)
    1 (8 oz) pkg. sliced fresh mushrooms (we used canned, drained)
    1 1/2 c. shredded baby Swiss cheese
    1 c. shredded Parmesan cheese, divided (we used a jar kind not the green can type)
    1/2 c. garlic-and-onion seasoned croutons, crushed
    1/4 t. paprika


    Whisk together soup and milk in a large mixing bowl; whisk in Alfredo sauce. Stir in chopped chicken, cooked spaghetti, peas, mushrooms, Swiss cheese and 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese.

    Pour into a greased 15 x 10" baking dish. Stir together remaining 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, crushed croutons and paprika; sprinkle evenly over casserole.

    Bake, covered, at 375ºF for 30 mins. Uncover and bake 15 more mins. or until golden brown and bubbly. Let stand 10 mins. before serving. Makes 8 servings.

    Note: casserole may be assembled and frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator then bake covered an extra 10 mins.

    My notes: This was very good. I will be making it and putting it in smaller containers and freezing. My Mom used to make something similar when we were growing up...she used the water that she boiled the chicken in as cooking "water" to cook the noodles...more chicken taste! Enjoy!!

    Davarenee...if you have to take a complete meal...can never go wrong with a ham, funeral potatoes, green beans, pineapple-cheese casserole, rolls, and a coconut pie. How's that? Now go cook girlfriend.
