Roasted Apples and Brussels Sprouts
My son, that is 22 and eats only corn, loved it and asked me to "please make this often Mom" finished off the little bit of leftover we had.... I haven't seen any pigs flying or h*ll freezing over so I guess he really did like it lol

Split Pea and Ham Soup II
Simple. Inexpensive. Nostalgic. Goodness. Stick to the recipe. I had to add in a cup of cubed potatoes because I used too much broth but if I didn't I wouldn't have. This recipe is perfect as-is if you are in the mood for a taste of Grandma's house

Crabmeat Salad
Fantastic! Simple! Perfect! I used chive onions and served on a bed of romaine with tomato wedges I really am impressed how good and simple (not even salt and pepper added!) I'D ADD A PHOTO BUT I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO TAKE A PIC BEFORE IT WAS DEVOURED! Thank you!!
