Audrey's Favorite Dishes

My name is Diane Bowen. My Mother's name is Audrey Salatka. She is a wonderful cook. We grew up tasting new foods each week and loving it! My Mother could make anything taste good. I am delighted to send you just two of our family's favorite dishes.

Old Fashioned Shortbread

1 c sugar

2 c butter

4 c flour

pinch of salt

Sift together the flour, sugar, and salt and rub in the butter. Roll or pat the dough into a circle on a cookie sheet and prick with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees until pale brown. While still warm, cut into fingers.

Grandma Salatka's Sausage Stuffing

6 slices of bread

Garlic seasoning

1/2 lb ground chuck

1/2 lb sausage

1 c celery, diced

1/2 c onion, diced

1 t diced garlic

2/3 c water

1t poultry seasoning

1t oregano

1t basil

2 T flour

1 egg

Sprinkle bread with garlic seasoning. Cube bread and toast. Set toasted bread aside. Brown ground chuck and sausage in a skillet with celery, onion, and garlic. Drain fat from meat mixture. Add water, sage, poultry seasoning, oregano, basil and flour. Cook and stir for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Place bread crumbs in a large bowl, add egg and meat mixture. Mix gently with hands. Add a little water if mixture seems too dry. Makes a delicious stuffing for poultry or can be put into a greased casserole dish and baked at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
