Carrot 7-Up Salad

Delicious and pretty, with plenty of vitamins.

  • 4-5 medium carrots    
  • 1 cup raisins    
  • 2 cups 7-UP    
  • 3 medium apples    

Wash, peel and finely grate carrots. Add 1 or 2 cups of 7-UP or other fruit soda-pop - lemon or orange, for example, but not red. Peel and roughly grate apples. Add raisins and sugar; use more sugar if apples are sour.

Homemade Nutella

When I visited the Schmidts in 1989, we had Nutella on French bread for breakfast, a Danish staple. Nutella is chocolate spread that tastes great with coffee, a hard boiled egg and some smoked fish, and your fingers. Linda makes it this way, and it's delicious.

  • cocoa powder
  • coconut lard
  • butter
  • sugar

Mix it up until you can spread it on bread. Eat it all, then go to the store and buy a jar of Nutella.

Then call a physician and tell him you can feel your arteries hardening.
