A Fall Dinner

It's still hot outside, but here are some easy recipes that will remind you of Fall.

Apple Pork Chops

4 Thick pork chops
Salt
1 Sweet onion, peeled and cut in thin wedges
1 Sweet apple, washed, peeled, cut in thin wedges
Butter

Make an aluminum foil package that will hold all 4 pork chops. Lay the pork chops in the package, sprinkle the chops with salt. Layer the onion wedges over the chops. Layer the apple wedges over the chops. Dot with butter. Seal the aluminum foil package. Bake in oven on 375F until done (depends on the thickness of your pork chops).

Carrot Croquets

4 cups cooked carrots
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
vegetable oil

Mash or press carrots through a course sieve. Add salt, nutmeg, egg and butter and mix thoroughly. Form into shapes resembling carrots, roll in bread crumbs and chill for several hours. Fry in hot deep oil until browned. Drain on absorbent paper, tuck in a sprig of parsley in top and serve at once.

Cheesy Baked Potatoes

2 Large baking potatoes
Cottage Cheese (low fat, if you desire)
Butter (or margarine or fat free margarine spreads)
Shredded cheddar cheese (low fat, if you desire)

Wash and puncture (with a fork) potatoes, wrap in tin foil. Bake in oven until you can easily puncture through with a fork. Remove from oven and let cool until it won't burn you to work with. Unwrap, cut in half. In a bowl, scoop the pulp out of the potatoes, add cottage cheese, butter and shredded cheddar cheese, salt & pepper to taste and stir together. Heap back into the potato shells. You may need to pop in the microwave before serving in order to reheat and melt the cheeses. Serves 4.
