Margaret’s Coca-Cola Chicken
1 whole chicken
1 cup of Coke
1 cup of ketchup
1 large onion
Put all ingredients in a large Dutch oven and bring to a boil without water. When it comes to a full boil, turn heat to low and simmer with the lid on. When the chicken gets tender, take off the lid and turn the heat back up to medium. Without the lid, finish cooking until done.
Shake the pot every now and then so the ingredients don’t stick. Chicken will take about 1 hour from start to finish.
Marie’s Corn Casserole
1 stick butter
1 box Jiffy cornbread mix
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can cream style corn
8 ounces sour cream
Mix all ingredients together, then pour into greased baking dish. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
For the first time since introducing Home Is Where The Food Is last spring, Angels’ residents made the dessert for the lunch in August— from start to finish, all by themselves!
Jackie read the recipe while Marialyce stirred the softened cream cheese, peanut butter, milk, sugar and whipped topping. Once ingredients were blended, residents were delighted to help with a taste test. Everyone agreed the pie filling was delicious! Residents needed to make 8 pies so that each of Angels’ four houses would have 2 pies. Residents made four “batches” of the recipe, which amounted to lots and lots of stirring.
Everyone agreed that it was fun to make the pies, and the aroma of peanut butter really made Durden House smell wonderful! Even those not directly involved in measuring, blending or pouring enjoyed watching others make the pies.
Even though they weren’t actually in the kitchen cooking, residents were happy to be able to contribute to the meal and look forward to more recipes that they can make themselves.
