Green Bean Recipe

1/4 pound bacon (about 5 slices), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
Couple dashes hot sauce, such as Tabasco
1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed and rinsed
1/3 cup jarred roasted red peppers, coarsely chopped

In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until almost done, 5 to 6 minutes.  Add the chopped roasted red peppers and continue to toss, until bacon is crispy.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon and peppers to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir the Worcestershire sauce, sugar, mustard and hot sauce into the bacon fat. 

Return the skillet to high heat, add the green beans and cook, tossing occasionally with tongs, until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Stir in the red peppers and the bacon, tossing until warmed through, about 1 minute.

Recipe by: Ellen J. Barrier

1- package of white cake mix
1- large box  JELL-O gelatin dessert

 1- can of white cake  frosting

Prepare gelatin according to directions on the box- and let it set in the refrigerator until it is partially jelled. (use a  flavor of choice) My family, prefer the lime flavor.
After each layer of cake has been frosted with white frosting, place Jell-O on the bottom layer. After placing the top layer on, cover it with the remaining Jell-O. Place the cake in a covered cake container, and keep it refrigerated. You should have Jell-O between the two layers, and Jell-O on the top layer.

And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
