Fervet olla, vivit amicitia:
While the pot boils, friendship endures.
Latin Proverb

I received an e-mail chain letter from a former co-worker the other day. Athough I initially rolled my eyes, after reading I realized that I would love to participate because it was a quick recipe exchange - I love me some recipes for sure!

In the last day I've received some delicious ones in my inbox that I had to share. It was especially fun to see where they came from and to see the actual receipes of dishes I have long enjoyed in their homes. Easy, quick things that just are so good!

I will be trying some out this week and I hope you find one you like too!

Breakfast Before
From my friend Casey's mother in law

1lb. sausage or bacon
Vegetables of your choice - optional (onion, green pepper, red pepper, or mushrooms)
5 slices of white bread with the crust removed (cubed)
1-½ cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese
7 eggs
2 cups whole milk
½ teaspoon salt

Sauté the sausage, bacon or the vegetables and drain. Beat eggs with milk and salt. Put bread layer down first in a 9 x13” pan, then layer of meat, then vegetables, then cheese. Beat eggs with milk and salt. Pour the egg mixture over the top and refrigerate over night. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

Babs' Eggplant Dish
From Melissa, orginially her co-worker's dish

1 Eggplant
1 Red, Green, AND Yellow Pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
Green Olives, minced
1 Chopped onion
1 cup of mayonaise
1/2 cup of mushrooms
2 cups of your favorite red marinara sauce
8 oz of your fav shredded cheese

Pre heat oven on BROIL
Slice eggplant into rounds about 1/2 thick (I prefer to cut the skin off prior)
Heavily coat EACH side of eggplant rounds with the mayo
Lay on baking sheet and broil for 15 min each side

While that is happening....In a pan ...evoo and garlic 1 minute add onionadd chopped peppers, alladd mushroomslastly, add green olives

Bake, 15-20 min, or until cheese is melted - ENJOY!

Lemon Cookies
From Casey

1 box yellow cake mix
8oz package Cool Whip
2 Eggs
Powdered Sugar

Mix together cake mix, cool whip, and eggs (dough is pretty thick). Roll teaspoon-sized portions in powdered sugar, place on baking sheet (I line mine with parchment paper) and flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes... until they are kind of crackled looking on the top.

Too bad I don't like eggs, because that first recipe sounds really good.
