I also have them plain in a bowl with pasta and sauce. Meatballs go well on toast, rye bread, white bread, Italian bread, and other kinds of breads.

Turkey sandwich

Turkey tastes great with mayonnaise. If you have any leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, you can make a sandwich with it on rye, white bread, or a roll, and put mayonnaise on the bread. I heat the turkey up first in the oven or microwave.

This is a very tasty sandwich to make in the morning if you like eggs. Eggs and toast go well together. Just scramble one egg. I then put the egg in microwave. You can also scramble the eggs and have them cook on the stove in a frying pan if you like. Make the toast, and add a slice of American cheese when everything is done. This scrambled egg sandwich tastes very good. You can also add ketchup to it if you like.

Swiss cheese sandwich

A Swiss cheese sandwich tastes good with a lot of mayonnaise on it. Mustard also goes well with it. Swiss cheese is good with rye bread or toast. Swiss cheese, like other cheeses, is a good way to get some extra calcium and vitamin B12.

Prune juice

prune juice
Prune juice taste smooth and sweet. It is very tasty. It has the same taste as eating prunes. Prune juice is high in iron and has many different vitamins and minerals in it. It also has potassium and fiber. Orange juice has a lot of potassium in it also, with a little fiber. Prune juice is the most healthiest drink that I have.

Toast with cream cheese

toast with cream cheese
Cream cheese on toast tastes good. It is best to put it on while the toast is hot so it melts in a little. It is a good change from the usual butter on toast. Jams and jellies also go well on toast.

Chicken and potatoes

chicken and potatoes
Chicken and potatoes makes a great dinner. These are small chicken drumsticks. Peel the potatoes and put them in the pan along with the chicken. The potatoes are also cut in half. Add a few sticks of margarine to the pan. Bake at 375° for between 60-75 minutes; until the juices run clear in the chicken. Keep pouring the margarine in the pan over the chicken and potatoes every so often while it is baking. The potatoes and chicken will turn a golden brown color. Five drumsticks and about seven potatoes is enough for 3-5 people. Corn and applesauce on the side goes well with them.

Indian corn

indian corn
This is my favorite candy for Halloween. They usually only start selling it near September. Indian corn tastes very sweet. It is like eating just the icing part of a cake. They are similar to candy corn, but indian corn has a slight chocolate taste to them. They are made from sugar, corn syrup, cocoa, and honey. If you like sweet candy, then indian corn may be a favorite.

Baked potato

baked potato
You can make a baked potato in the microwave oven. They come out really good and taste great. Just buy a bag of potatoes at your supermarket. Put some small cuts in the potato with a knife. Put the potato on a paper towel in the microwave oven. You should have a baked potato setting on the microwave controls. I press this button twice for each potato. It can be done sooner though. If you can put a knife in it and it feels soft, then it is done. Just peel the skin off with a knife or a potato peeler. Use caution. The potato comes out very hot! I have it cut with butter on it. Potatoes have no fat. They have fiber, potassium, and a lot of vitamins and minerals in them.

I keep chocolate syrup in the house in the summer since I have ice cream often. Chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate syrup on top tastes great. Chocolate syrup goes best with vanilla or chocolate ice cream. You can also make chocolate milk from the chocolate syrup by mixing it in with milk.

Egg salad

egg salad
Making egg salad is easy. It makes a great sandwich. Be sure to first read how to make hard boiled eggs if you don't already know how. After you peel the eggs and put them in a bowl, all you do is add some mayonnaise and mix it together. Salt, and even a little pepper taste good on them. Egg salad tastes good on white bread. I also have it on a roll sometimes. One to two eggs should be enough for each person.

Hard boiled eggs

hard boiled eggs
Hard boiled eggs are great for lunch. I have two shown in the picture. Two eggs is usually the right amount for each person, but I sometimes have just one. They are very easy to make. Fill a small pot with cold water. Make sure the tops of the eggs are covered with water. You don't need any more water in the pot than that. Boil them on high on the stove until the water starts bubbling. Then put them on low heat for about 20 minutes. I use #3 on my stove. Twenty minutes is the approximate time. If you like them harder, then you can cook them longer. It is important you cook them enough though. If you take them off sooner, the eggs will be too soft, making it hard to peal the shells off later on. Be sure to run the eggs a little under cold water before you peel them, because the shells are very hot. I have them here already cut. You can add a little salt to them when they are done. You can also make egg salad from hard boiled eggs.

Hot cocoa

tot cocoa
Hot cocoa is great to have in the cold winter months. The cocoa I have here also has marshmallows in it. Check the labels when you buy cocoa. Some cocoa with marshmallows has a lot of calcium in it. It is a good way of getting extra calcium. I just fill this size tea cup shown in the picture almost up to the top with cold water. Then I put the tea cup in the microwave for one minute and fifty seconds. Then just empty the cocoa and marshmallow packet into the water and mix. The water can also be boiled on the stove and added later.

Waffles

waffles
I like waffles. They sell many different kinds of waffles in the supermarket. I like them with butter and syrup. I never have more than two. They are good for breakfast. I can eat them also later in the day. They taste good with orange juice or other fruit juice as a drink.
