Deli Sandwiches for 33

Do-it-yourself deli sandwiches: roast beef, ham, turkey breast, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, mayo, Miracle Whip, mustard; red J-ello with Cool Whip; vegi tray: grape tomatoes, olives, carrots, celery, ranch dip; potato chips and dip; tostada chips and salsa; lemonade; dessert tray: Rice Krispy treats, no-bake cookies, brownies, double chocolate fudge brownie cake, sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, fudgy chocolate chip cookies.

In a food processor, combine: 8 medium tomatoes, 2 large green peppers, 1/2 medium onion, 2T fresh cilantro, 2 t cumin, 1 jalapeno pepper. Mix just until diced. If you mix too long, the onions and peppers will become watery.

Double Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cake
This is Grandpa's secret recipe so I have no idea what he puts in it. It is terrific and moist.

No-Bake cookies (also known as missionary cookies or Chocolate Oatmeal)
In a saucepan, mix 1/2C milk, 2C sugar, 3T cocoa, 1 t salt, 1/2C margarine. Bring to a rolling boil. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add 1 T vanilla, 1/4 C peanut butter and 3C quick oats. Optional: 1/2C powdered milk, 1/4C coconut, 1/2C chopped walnuts.

Easy Lemonade
Mix one can of prepared frozen lemonade with one packet of prepare Crystal-Lite lemonade flavored drink. Float lemon slices or edible flowers such as daisies, violets, lavender or pansies on top. Voila!

We had 33 family members for dinner today so the meal had to be easy to prepare ahead of time. Everyone enjoyed the meal.
