Instructions:
In large skillet, cook ground beef with onion until thoroughly cooked. Drain any grease, return to pan and season with onion and garlic powders, soy and Worcestershire sauces, and salt and pepper. Put mixture into crock pot and add remaining ingredients except for milk. Stir together, cover, and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours (or on high for 1 1⁄2 to 2 hours), stirring occasionally. Just before serving, stir in milk or cream to reach desired consistency. Serve with rippled potato chips, cooked French fries or mini potatoes.
*Jars are 5 ounces each so you will need about 12 ounces total.
Cheese Board
Choose three of your favorite cheeses, one sharp, one mild, and one soft (like a cream cheese or a spreadable blue) and space on serving platter. Add rolled meats such as ham and salami. Add
two or three types of crackers, usually
a wheat, a melba toast, and a plain. Add a small bowl of grainy mustard and a small bowl of sour cherry or fig jam. Garnish with bunches of grapes.

CHEESEBURGER DIP
I can’t believe it’s time to write
a November cooking column again. Didn’t we just start spring? That said, this is truly my favorite season. Holiday parties begin, football season is under- way, and we are always trying to come up with some recipes for get-togethers. And I always turn to something cheesy. These two recipes will get your through the holidays and beyond.
• 1 pound ground beef
• 1 small onion, finely chopped
• 1 teaspoon each onion and garlic
powders
• 2 teaspoons each soy and
Worcestershire sauces (to season
meat)
• Salt and pepper to taste
• *Two and a half jars Kraft Old
go into dip mixture)
• 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
Benefits of
What are the benefits of “Thanksgiving?” Some might say, “Abundance of good food,” or others might say, “Lots of football.” These
are only temporary things and probably everyone is not necessarily “thank-
ful” for these things. However, as we approach the Thanksgiving season, let us ponder things that are lasting and can be shared by many.
perform better in the work and academ- ic environments.
Thanksgiving, by definition, is the expression of gratitude. In a world where we all have stress and trials, con- centrating on and expressing gratitude has numerous benefits.
As you think about this season of Thanksgiving be sure to have an “atti- tude of gratitude” and demonstrate
that to those that you are grateful for – caregivers, family, clergy, friends, etc. (while enjoying good food and football, too!), this attitude will prove beneficial in many areas of life throughout each and every day.
I'm grateful for 1.
