Better late then never. Here's the recipe for the sweetbreads I mentioned last week...It's a basic sweetbread recipe that you can add your favorite fruits to. This is the recipe I use to make my strawberry and pineapple breads with.

Strawberry Bread

3 cups plain flour
1 tsp. salt
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 (10 ounce) packages of frozen strawberries, thawed
1 1/4 cup cooking oil
3 eggs, beaten

Sift dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add pecans and mix. Make a well in the center. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour into well. Stir enough to dampen all ingredients and then pour into 2 greased and sugared loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in bread comes out clean. Let sit 10 minutes to cool, then remove from bread pans and let bread finish cooling on a rack.

For Pineapple bread, use a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple. Substitute 1/3 cup of sugar with 1/3 cup of packed brown sugar. Substitute walnuts for the pecans.

You can also use frozen raspberries, black berries, or blueberries in place of the strawberries. Other types of nuts can be substituted as well as adding raisins if you like to.

Also, you can make a nice powdered sugar glaze to pour over the top of the bread for added sweetness and decoration.

UNCLE IRVING'S FISH SKILLET

From a real good cook who helped us produce this cook book.

1 package (1 lb.) frozen fish fillets, such as haddock
3 tablespoons Wesson
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 can (8 oz.) Hunt's Tomato Sauce
1/2-cup water
1/2-teaspoon salt
Dash pepper

Partially defrost fish, so they are easily separated.
Pour Wesson into skillet.
Add onions and cook over medium heat about 5 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients except fish; cook abou 5 minutes.
Add fish; cover and simmer 10 minutes or until done, basting once.
4 servings--170 calories each.

This came from the Wesson Oil Cookbook circa 1965.
It has been a favorite in my family since we first tried it. It is best served over rice.

Ok, I was asked elsewhere to share the recipes to two of the dishes we're having tonight...So I thought to save time I'd post them here as well, just in case anyone is interested in them...

Shredded Habanero Chicken

4 pounds of boneless/skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch strips
2 1/2 cups of chicken stock/broth
1 small onion finely chopped
2-4 tablespoons of tomatoe paste
1-2 tablespoons of garlic (optional...hubby is allergic to it, so I don't use it anymore)
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1-4 tablespoons of habanero pepper paste (feel free to substitute other hot pepper pastes/blends; also more you add, hotter the chicken is)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice

In large skillet, combine all the ingredients except the chicken till well mixed. Add strips of chicken and add water till chicken is covered. Cook on low till chicken is desired tenderness. Some of the mixture should have reduced by 1/3 by then. Remove chicken and allow chicken to cool. Shred chicken with a fork into pieces then add back to remaining sauce, stirring well. It'll be about 'taco' consistancy. If it's too dry, add a bit of extra chicken stock to it.

You can use this to use as taco filling, on top of salads, or makes a great pita sandwich with desired toppings.

Cooking time is about 30 minutes total.

Spicy Corn Succotash

1 package of frozen corn (if using fresh, off the cob, about 4 cups)
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 stick of butter/margerine
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon hot pepper puree (or you can add 2 tablespoons finely diced jalopeno peppers)

Melt butter in saucepan. Add onion, bell peppers, and hot peppers. Sautee till onion is semi-transparent. Add remaining ingredients, stir well, and cook till throughly heated.

Cooking time-20 minutes

It's delicious, that's for sure. I also use that one, just substituting the alcohol in it for Amaretto or Bailey's Irish Creme Cheesecakes. Creme De Menthe works too if you don't add the cocoa to the creme cheese mix itself. Although some people get a bit nervous seeing a green cheesecake. ROTFLMAOL!!!
