May 2018 beaconsports By Melanie Alexander Ah, spring! By Of course, snow showers Maxine are predicted for this evening, but we know Klump that warmer, sunny days that make this Community area seem so Correspondent delightful can’t be far away. This easy lemon dessert was shared years ago by one of my co-workers, Deb Horton. Both of us love to cook, and we shared many recipes over the years. This dessert does not involve baking and can be made ahead of time. Easy Lemon Freeze Enough 1 cup graham cracker crumbs 1 21-oz. can lemon pie filling 1 12-oz. can condensed milk (such as Eagle Brand) ½ cup lemon juice 1 ½ cups whipped topping Mix melted butter with graham cracker crumbs and press into the bottom of 8x8 THE BEACON inch square pan. Combine pie filling, condensed milk, and lemon juice. Spread over crumbs. Top with whipped topping. If desired, reserve 1 tablespoon of crumbs and sprinkle over the whipped topping. Freeze at least 3 hours. This is one of Lee’s long-held recipes and can be divided or enlarged to fit the number of folks being served. The amounts in this original recipe yield six main course servings. Leftovers are easily reheated. Now that I’m serving one person, I divide the recipe by 4 and have enough for lunch the following day. This dish is versatile, and chicken or shrimp can be substituted for ham, or you can omit meat entirely. If you don’t have fans of asparagus, substitute green peas. Summertime Vegetable Pasta ½ pound fettuccine 1/3 cup onions, minced 1 clove garlic, minced ½ pound asparagus cut into 2-in. pieces ¼ pound sliced fresh mushrooms 1 medium zucchini, quartered and sliced thinly 1 carrot, halved lengthwise and sliced thinly 2 tablespoons vegetable oil ½ cup sour cream ½ cup chicken or vegetable broth 1 teaspoon crushed basil ½ cup Parmesan cheese ½ pound diced ham 2 tablespoons minced green onions Cook pasta according to directions. In a wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium- high heat. Sauté´ onion and garlic for about 3 minutes. Add remaining vegetables and stir-fry for about 3 minutes. Add chicken broth, and basil and stir. Continue to cook over medium heat to reduce liquid. Add chicken broth and green onions and continue cooking until warmed. Add sour cream and cheese. Toss to combine. Top with additional parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy the upcoming warm and sunny days. STOP WISHING! START PLAYING GUITAR NOW!
