Friday Friend Recipes #278 , 279, 280 and 281Asparagus Oriental, Scalloped Onions, Zuchini-Tomatoes-Onions and corn pudding

Vegetable/Side Dish Palooza!!
This time you get not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4---count 'em---FOUR recipes in one post!
Why, you ask? 
Well, it's apparent that I am posting recipes far and few nowadays.  But I am under 100 now, I must get this done.  At least to prove something to myself if not the Handyman...

...about 21 years ago, 50 of my closest friends and family, who had been on an
  e-mail forum with me, sent in recipes in different categories and we compiled a cookbook.
I decided to count those down!
because one night I was looking thru the cookbook and I said, "I should make every recipe in  here for my blog."
The Handyman, who thinks he knows me better than I know myself, said "you'll never EVER do that."
Well, maybe I will!  Maybe I'll show him!

I just need to hurry up and  'get 'er done'
Then I'll show him!

And as always,  it's not about the quality of the photos, it's about the family, friends and fun we have all had together!

All of the recipes were sent in by my cousin Linda.
Let us begin with some Asparagus and pea pods.
This was really good.
I don't know what to say, except this was really good.

And then we'll move on to some Scalloped Sweet Onions.
I  have to be honest here--I was skeptical about this one, but you know what? I loved it.

And then we had some 
I love tomatoes, onions and zucchini.

2 T butter
2 small zucchini, sliced
1 med. onion, thinly sliced
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
1/2 t. garlic salt -- 1/8 t. pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella

Melt butter in a skillet. Add zucchini, mushrooms & onion. Cook over med heat till crisp tender. Stir in tomatoes and seasonings. 
Cook 3-5 minutes, till tomatoes ae tender. Remove from heat. 
Sprinkle with cheese.  Let stand a couple minutes.

Corn Pudding--with so few ingredients I wasn't sure it would become 'pudding', but it did!
And it was good.

And there you have it--Vegetable/side dish PALOOZA!!
All from my cousin Linda
(you can see all her recipes here)
Linda with her daughter, Jen 😃

We have many great cousin stories--just click her recipes above to read all about them--but I thought since this was a Vegetablepalooza post, it could also be a cousinpalooza post.

Here are a few of my grandchildren--cousins.
4 years apart at cousin camp both times. 
They recreated a photo--or as best as they could remember it anyway.
Here is to cousin relationships everywhere!
They know all the family secrets!

And these my friends are

recipes #278, 279, 280 and 281

Only 86 left to go!

I can do it!

WOO HOO!  I am below 100 recipes now.  Yay!  Yahoo! Whoopie!

Altho.... do you remember when I counted wrong before?  I think I did it again.
I keep counting what I have left by recipe AND by person and it does not add up to 86- it's more like 73. 
Which would make me very happy, but for now....I'll stick to the 86 until it gets closer to the end and I'll recount what I have left.
