AUNT MONNIE'S BROWNIES -from my favorite aunt (Monica)
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup margarine
Cream together and then add & mix:
2/3 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Spread into a sheet cake pan (not greased). Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. That's correct...there is NO baking powder or soda in this recipe. It is definitely a moist, rich brownie and so very tasty when frosted with the following frosting! Can you say "Chocolate Perfection!"? :)
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 Tbsp. milk
6 Tbsp. margarine
1 cup miniature marshmallows
Bring sugar, milk and margarine to a boil and boil for 30 seconds. NO LONGER! Remove from heat and add real chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Then add marshmallows and keep stirring until thick. Then spread on brownies. Can also be used on cupcakes and cake. YUM!
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 quart Zucchini chunks
1 quart canned tomatoes(I used fresh tomatoes,peeled and quartered)
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 Tbsp chopped parsley
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup broken spaghetti
Sprinklw salt in electric skillet set at 375 deg. Cook and stir ground beef until pink color is gone. Add rest of ingredients except for spaghetti and bring to a boil,then reduce heat to 220 deg-simmer for 30 minutes. I added garlic and oregano here. Thenincrease temp to 300 deg and stir in spaghettiand cook foir 15 minutes,stirring occasionally. I had 1 grand who does not like tomatoes,so he got bare spaghetti with butter on it,so i cooked the spaghetti separately. If you do it that way,the sauce will be thin..Also,I used summer squash instead of the zucchini,but we liked it anyway..
Thanks for the recipe, Pat! Lots of zucchini floating around this time of year so all ways to use it up are welcome ;^)
