1. Peanut Soup

4. Poached Pears with Cranberry Sauce
5. Potato Casserole
1. Peanut Soup

This rich soup associated with colonial times has its roots
in Africa.

Serves 4-6

2 Tablespoons Butter
1 small Onion, chopped
1 stalk Celery, chopped
2 Tablespoons Flour
1 quart Chicken broth
1 cup Peanut butter, creamy
2/3 cup Cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a heavy soup pot. Add the onion and
celery and cook until just soft. Whisk in the flour and
cook for 3 minutes. Slowly blend in the broth. Bring to a
boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
Strain and return the broth to the pot. Slowly whisk in the
peanut butter and the cream. Simmer for 15 minutes longer.
Serve warm.

Nick Sundberg

5 pounds or 20 cups flour
2 tablespoons salt
1-1/2 pounds lard
2 cups shortening

Mix all ingredients together until crumbly. Store in tightly-covered container until needed. This should be refrigerated. When ready to bake pies, combine 3 cups mix with 1/3 cup milk. This ratio will make enough dough for two 9-inch pies.

(This is a great recipe to share with ones you know will be busy baking for the Holidays. I recommend to place in plastic bags the amount needed to make a pie. )

4. Poached Pears with Cranberry Sauce
Source: Better Homes and Gardens

Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

1-1/2  cups cranberries
3/4  cup water
6   ripe medium pears
1/2  cup sugar
1/3  cup amaretto or hazelnut liqueur
1  cup whipping cream
2  tablespoons amaretto or hazelnut liqueur (optional)
   Toasted sliced or slivered almonds
   Fresh mint (optional)

1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven combine cranberries and water; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until cranberry skins begin to pop. Cool slightly. Place mixture in a food processor bowl or blender container. Cover and process or blend until almost smooth; sieve mixture, if desired. Return mixture to saucepan or Dutch oven. 
2. Meanwhile, peel and core pears, leaving stems intact. If necessary, cut a thin slice from bottom of pears so they stand upright. Add sugar and the 1/3 cup amaretto to cranberry mixture; bring to boiling. Add pears, turning to coat. Simmer, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly. Serve warm; or chill, covered, until serving time. 
3. To serve, in a mixing bowl beat whipping cream and the 2 tablespoons amaretto (if desired) on medium speed of an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Divide cranberry sauce among 6 dessert plates; place a pear on each plate. Serve with whipped cream and garnish with toasted almonds and mint, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
