Pumpkin Snack Cake

1 15 oz. can cannelloni beans or other white bean (drained & mashed
1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
4 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
2 TBSP butter, margarine or oil (I use 2T nsa applesauce)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
2 TBSP chopped pecans

I ADD raisens

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare an 8x8 baking pan by spraying it with
Pam.

Blend all ingredients  but nuts (or topping)IF YOU can USE
in food processor till smooth.

Pour into baking dish. Sprinkle on nuts or topping if using. Bake 30
minutes. Cool 10 minutes before slicing.

*Optional topping:
1/4 c ground pecans + 2 T brown sugar + 1/8 t cinnamon

Change out what you can to make it work for all. Takes longer to cook then it says check the center and make sure it is firm.

Taco salad is our "same ole, same ole."  It's fast and easy, provided your meat's already thawed.

Lola, you're so sweet.  I don't unwind.  I need to learn a few yoga moves to help me relax because I'm uptight most of the time.

Turkey chili sounds great!  How do you get around tomatoes?

roasted pimentos are a good sub for tomatoes.

Curry, yum!  Would you happen to have any recipes?  I have lots of brown rice on hand to serve with it.

Slow cookers, buffets, leftovers made into wonderful salads, pilaf, oven fries, ... you have all been an absolute treasure trove of good ideas.

Thanks again for the recipes for the Baked Oatmeal and Pumpkin Snack Cake.

I was surprised to hear of rice grits, I thought I'd never be enjoying them again, neat!

I do this instead of curry, since not all of us can have peppers or coconut milk.  This fills a wok to the brim.

Biryani

2 Tbsp. oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1/2 c. chopped cilantro
1 tsp. garam masala
1 Tbsp. coriander
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
5 cardamom pods; smack with side of large knife and remove seeds.  Discard pods.
1 3-in. stick cinnamon
2 tsp. salt
5 c. mixed veggies
2 1/2 c. basmati rice
4 3/4 c. water

Soak rice in water 30 min. While soaking, heat oil in wok.  Fry onions for a few minutes, then add garlic, ginger and cilantro.  Add all spices except salt.  Stir to release fragrance.  Add vegetables and salt.  Cook 2-3 minutes on high heat, then med. 4-5 minutes.  Stir occasionally. Add rice and soaking water.  Bring to boil, lower heat and simmer till all water is absorbed.

If a meat dish is desired add 1 lb. chopped chicken (or turkey) breast and fry along with onions at beginning.
