BABA’S NOODLES AND SCRAMBLED EGGS
This is the best thing to do with leftover noodles from Baba’s Spaghetti.
This recipe is so darn delicious and so easy to make! It has always been a favorite of mine and Annie’s!
In a saucepan, spray some cooking spray and add some butter and melt the butter in the pan over medium heat. Add the cooked noodles and pour in some Egg Beaters (and add some crushed chives, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper). Cook until the Egg Beaters are scrambled, add some fresh avocados and then enjoy! This can be eaten for breakfast, brunch or lunch!
Leftover (cooked) noodles, 2 cups
Egg Beaters, 1 cup
Crushed chives, sprinkle to taste
Worcestershire sauce, sprinkle to taste
Fresh avocados, sliced, ½ large
Salt & pepper, sprinkle to taste

baba's homemade spaghetti
This is the best Spaghetti Sauce I have ever had! I am not Italian...I did not grow up with Italians...but I would bet this is pretty darn close to Italian-made and Italian-tasting spaghetti sauce! Make it and taste it for yourself.
This recipe is so darn delicious and easy to make! It has always been a favorite of mine and both my brothers and all of our kids and all of our friends and all of their kids, even as young kids! It sure beats what you can “doctor up” out of the jar! It’s especially good on Sundays because that gives you all day to let the sauce simmer. Be sure to enjoy it with your favorite spaghetti pasta noodle and Italian bread and salad.
In your crock-pot (or in a pot on top of the stove) add your already browned hamburger (spray the pan with cooking spray first). Add Pico de Gallo (diced green peppers and diced onions) and diced celery and the 5 cans of tomatoes (paste, puree, sauce, stewed, soup) and about ⅔ cup sugar to sweeten the tomatoes - this was always my mom’s specialty!! Add oregano, garlic, salt, parsley, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer all day - well, at least 6 hours. If you are simmering on the stove top and not using a crock-pot, then I suggest you simmer with a diffuser underneath to ensure the heat is small and even.
After the sauce simmers all day (at least 6 hours), then boil the spaghetti noodles and ladle the sauce over the drained spaghetti noodles. Serve with some garlic bread and your choice of salad. This is really a meal to enjoy - so BON APPETIT!!

PEG’S SPECIAL SALAD MIX
This is a fairly basic salad, but I like to add it into an Old El Paso Soft Tortilla Bowl (flour style) to “rev” up the look and flavor, and make the bowl edible too! Although please note that the soft tortilla bowl can be used for any salad you want to make!
The soft tortilla bowl makes it easier to eat when finishing (after getting as much as you can with a fork in your unaffected, but not-so-common, eating hand). And the Pico de Gallo really adds some great spicy flavor!! This salad makes a great and healthy lunch or dinner. And depending how hungry you are, you can make it any size!
This salad is very easy to make and can be made for lunch or dinner.
First add shredded lettuce, premade Pico de Gallo, pre-cut avocado (which I can get at my local Walmart or Target) and your favorite flavor croutons (mine happen to be garlic and cheese).
Then I sometimes like to add any of the following to the salad to enhance it - egg salad, chicken, steak, pork, leftovers, you-name-it!
And I finally add the dressing (my favorite is ranch - as it compliments the Pico de Gallo so nicely).

Peg's favorite curry chicken salad
PEG’S FAVORITE CURRY CHICKEN SALAD
I really like making this salad because I can use it in several meals during the upcoming week.
It can be eaten alone as a salad, added to greens for a “kicked-up” salad, added to tacos or burritos, or added to bread for a sandwich!
Because the Curry Chicken Salad can be added to several different meals during the week, you can make a larger batch and use it 2-3 times that week (depending how many people you need to feed besides yourself). My local Vons sells already pre-cooked, pre-cut chicken breast for $5.99/pound. It is healthy and fresh and ready to use.
Pre-cooked, pre-cut chicken breast
Pre-washed, pre-diced celery (also sold at my local Vons)
Approx. ¼ cup Feta Cheese
Approx. 1 T. curry powder
Approx. ½ cup mayo
Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate together for at least 1 hour.
