I hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving weekend. I really enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner this year as we had extended family here for the day. My daughter in law’s sister and her family joined us for the day. As she lives in the South, she offered to bring some dishes. She added a Southern flair to our dinner by bringing mac & cheese, cabbage and Southern green beans. I have never heard of adding mac & cheese or cabbage to a Thanksgiving menu. The Southern Green beans was a welcome change to the usual Green bean casserole. It was fun having different entrees with our meal. I did not realize until that day what a rut I have been in with planning Thanksgiving dinner. Every year the menu changes very little.
I have a recipe that comes from Buck Horine. I have not tried it yet, but I think it would be easy to make this hearty dish.
Jeff Club House Meal

■ 1/4 to 1/3 head of cabbage, cut up
■ 3 or potatoes, cut in small pieces
■ large onion, chopped
■ mushrooms, cut up
■ 1 stick Polish sausage, cut up
■ 1 stick of butter, cut up
■ 3 or 4 slices bacon, cut up
Dust with garlic powder or spread on cut up garlic. If you have Cajun powder use some! Cover with foil, Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.
The recipe did not specify whether to layer the ingredients or to mix them. I think you would layer them in order given, and then dot with the butter.
I also have a recipe from R. H. Kirsh of St. Clair, Illinois for Gooey Butter Cake that sounds delicious and easy to make.
Gooey Butter Cake
(Submitted by R.H. Kirsh)
■ 1 pkg yellow cake mix
■ 1 egg
■ 1 stick margarine
Mix like cookie dough, place in ungreased 13x9x2 pan.
■ 1 8 oz cream cheese
■ 2 eggs
■ 1 box powdered sugar
Cream the cheese and eggs gradually adding powdered sugar. Pour over the dough mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
If you are like me and buy the bags of powdered sugar, measure out 3 1/2 cups to equal 1 box.
