    Chick Pea Dip

    Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.
    a 19-ounce can chick-peas, rinsed and drained (about 2 cups)
    2 garlic cloves, chopped and mashed to a paste with 1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup packed fresh parsley leaves, washed well and spun dry
    1/4 cup water
    3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

    Accompaniment: toasted pita wedges or toasted French bread slices

    In a food processor blend all ingredients except oil until smooth. With motor running add oil in a slow stream. Season dip with salt. Serve dip with toasts

    I prepare this a few days in advance. Cover with saran wrap touching the top of the dip creating a seal.

    I also do an eggplant dip if anyone cares.

    The broccoli salad sounds great!

    Gina, I make a dip almost identical to yours! I'd love to hear your eggplant recipe if you want to post it!

    Go to Sam's Club and get a Sadler's smoked brisket. Heat in oven according to package directions in a good pre-made barbeque sauce. The last party I made this for people were picking at it before it was even put on a serving platter. Wonderful.

    Any time I go to something where everyone brings a dish, I make ham and cheese bread. It's a loaf of homemade bread that is braided and stuffed with diced ham and cheese. I usually make one with honey baked ham, and if I need to take more, I make another one with some type of lunchmeat from the deli. (I have them cut a big chunk so that I can dice it.) I follow this recipe, but I leave out the olives and pimientos.

    If you have a good counter top mixer, you can double the recipe and make it in there.

    If it isn't too hot for a green salad give this one a try. It is always a big hit with a crowd. Sorry I don't have exact measurements, but I've made this so long that I do it from memory. I usually use a huge tupperware bowl.

    Missy's Layered Salad

    1 head iceberg lettuce
    1 head cauliflower
    frozen peas (I usually buy a lg. sack and use part of it)
    sm. jar mayo
    salad seasoning
    parmesan cheese

    Tear up the lettuce in a large bowl. Top with cauliflower cut into small pieces. Next add a solid layer of frozen peas (don't worry about thawing them). Spread an even layer of mayo over the peas, covering completely. Sprinkle with a layer of salad seasoning. (Many people have never heard of salad seasoning. It is a red-orange seasoning with paprika, cheese, celery, garlic, etc in it. My latest brand is McCormick and it is called Salad Supreme, but the brand doesn't matter. Use whatever you can find). Then a layer of parmesan cheese. I put these in that order so I can see that I have good coverage. Amounts are not that important. Make it to your taste. Put on the lid and refrigerate overnight.

    When it is time to eat, toss the salad and enjoy! Folks at our church suppers love it. In fact, at pot-lucks they sign me up for this and don't give me a choice!
