Holiday Spaghetti Plus Earrings

I found a wonderful pamphlet tucked inside a recipe box – advertising a Betty Crocker Lemon Pie contest due “midsummer 1939.” Along with that is this delightful “Holiday Spaghetti:”

1/2 lb. spaghetti

3 qt. boiling salted water

1/2 cup Shortening

1 large onion, finely minced

1 green pepper, finely minced

1 8-oz. can mushrooms

1 lb. ground round steak

3 tsp salt

1 tsp. sugar

3 1/2 cups canned tomatoes

4 to 8 tbsp. grated cheese

Break spaghetti into 1 1/2 – 2 inch pieces. Cook till tender in boiling salted water. Drain. Melt shortening in large frying pan. Add onion, green pepper, sliced mushrooms and cook slowly till onion is golden yellow. Add round steak and 1 tsp. salt. Cook 10 minutes.

Add remaining salt, cooked spaghetti, sugar and tomatoes. When whole mixture is hot, transfer to buttered baking dish and sprinkle top with cheese. Bake 15 – 30 minutes in moderate oven (350F) in 10-inch casserole. Garnish with crisp broiled slices of bacon, and sprigs of parsley just before serving. Serves 6 – 8.

Here are a few holiday earring pairs I made to get into the season, as part of the challenge that talented designer SJ Designs Jewelry hosted this year. I’m barely keeping up now with the other things I’m making, the new job, shows and the new anthology coming out (more on that soon) , but am still enjoying making these!

    I feel like I missed something… what’s your new job?? I’m glad you are still playing along with me! I know it’s getting more and more challenging to keep up as the holidays and the end of the year rapidly head our way. Love your Christmas earrings even if I’m not ready to think about that holiday until the end of the Thanksgiving parade. :) Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
