Apricot Jell-O Salad
1 small box apricot Jell-O
1 cup boiling water
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese
1 (15-ounce) can pineapple chunks
1 (15-ounce) can fruit cocktail

Strawberry Shortcake
1 box strawberry cake mix
1 (16-ounce) box frozen strawberries, thawed
2 tablespoons butter
1 box confectioner’s sugar

Prepare cake in 2 or 3 layers according to the directions on the box, substituting strawberry juice from frozen berries for the water. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until done.
Combine strawberries, remaining juice and butter in a saucepan and heat until butter is melted. Add confectioner’s sugar and stir until dissolved. When cool, ice cake.

Chicken and Dumplings
Combine equal parts of self-rising flour and all-purpose flour. Add enough sweet milk to reach a dough consistency. Boil chicken pieces (your choice) until done. Remove bones and chop meat. Roll dough out thin. Cut in strips. Pinch in small pieces and put into hot broth. Add salt and pepper to taste. When dumplings are done, return chopped chicken to pot. Add 1 small can evaporated milk.
