Most people welcome a nice Irish Coffee

      Yum.

      Normally, I don't want ANYTHING messing up my coffee.... normally, I avoid all those "foo - foo" coffees. I want mine strong and black - tasting like coffee. But yeah - sometimes - some Baileys and a bit of rum and some whipped cream... a nice dessert coffee. I like coffee with just some chocolate liquor added, too.

      This is a simple Christmas cool/cold salad.

      Cook some kidney beans, some rice (basmati is best, but a well washed long grain will doo very well too), some chopped mushrooms, and some corn and some peas. Let them cool down, (you can cook the rice with Turmeric to make it yellow if you like). When cool mix the beans, mushrooms, corn and peas into the rice but do it gently so that you do not break the rice grains, have some sour cream and chives on the side, you can add some onion flavoured salt (if it is available in the USA) to the sour cream to make it a little fancy.

      Suggested serving is about half a cup of the above rice and mushroom etc mix with a tablespoon full of the sour cream on the plate beside it. It makes a nice clean tasting side for the more meaty dishes eaten at Christmas.

      My mom used to make a banana pudding that had nilla wafers in it. This recipe is closest to what she made:

      https://www.thespruce.com/easy-banan...recipe-3051145



      Ingredients:
      1 large package instant vanilla pudding (6 ounces)
      2 1/2 cups cold milk
      1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
      1 large container whipped topping (16 ounces)
      3 bananas (sliced)
      1 banana (for topping, optional)
      30 vanilla wafer cookies

      Mix pudding and milk; add condensed milk. Blend well; fold in half of the whipped topping.
      Toss the 3 sliced bananas with 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
      In a serving bowl or individual dessert dishes, alternate layers of pudding, banana slices, and vanilla wafers; top with the remaining whipped topping.
      For the best flavor, refrigerate overnight before serving.
      If desired, garnish the dessert with banana slices just before serving.

      buy some corned beef cut its surface about 1 cm deep in cuts separated one from another by about 2 cm then put some pepper in the cuts and a little vinegar (chillies and vinegar works too). cook on high in your microwave for around 30 minutes and then reduce the power to about 30% and cook for another 90 minutes. Just before cooking for the 90 minutes on 30% power surround it with peeled potatoes, peeled carrots, onions cut into quarters or eighths, poke some thin slices of garlic into the slits on the beef and then start cooking for 90 minutes. When it is all finished take it and brown it a little under a grill or in a hot oven. then let it rest for 30 minutes. carve it and make gravy with the juices. The beef will be fall-apart tender and very tasty. Good for a main meal and leftovers work well for days after. The times above are for 2 Kg if you have a bigger corned beef piece then cook longer if you need to.

      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Throw the package in a pot. Warm up. Chomp bread in it. It's our favorite special Christmas meal.

      Basic Refrigerator Cookie

      Yield: 4 Dozen

      1/2 Cup Butter, softened
      3/4 Cup Sugar
      2 tsp. Vanilla
      1 3/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
      1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
      1/2 tsp. Salt

      In mixer bowl, cream together butter and sugar; blend in egg and vanilla. In another bowl stir together flour, baking powder and salt (use a fork to blend well). Stir the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture slow.

      On waxed paper, shape into two 6-inch rolls. Wrap in clear plastic wrap; chill thoroughly. Re-shape slightly before using and rolling out. Use small amounts of flour to help with rolling and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.

      Bake in pre-heated 375 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.
