MOM'S Lemonade

1 Quart water
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup FRESH lemon juice
Sparkling Water (not tonic water, like Perrier)

Mix first three togther. Fill a tall glass 2/3 to
3/4 with Lemon mixture then fill with sparkling water.

An intresting variation is to puree some fruit
(raspberries, strawberries, etc) with a little
superfine or powdered sugar and put that in the
glass before adding the the lemonade and water.

Deep Dish Pizza

Pan Dough:

1 cup Warm tap water (110−115ΓΈ)
1 pkg. Active dry yeast
3 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Coarse ground cornmeal
1 teas. Salt
1/4 cup Vegetable oil

Pizza Topping:

1 lb. Mozzarella, sliced thin
1 lb. Italian Sausage, removed from the Casing and crumbled
1 can Whole tomatoes, drained and Coarsely crushed
2 cloves Garlic, peeled and minced
5 Fresh basil leaves, chopped fine
4 tbls. Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Pour the warm water into a large mixing bowl and dissolve the yeast
with a fork. Add 1 cup of flour, all of the cornmeal, salt, and, and
vegetable oil. Mix well with a spoon. Continue stirring in the rest
of the flour 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes away from the
sides of the bowl. Flour your hands and the work surface and kneed
the ball of dough until it is no longer sticky.

Let the dough rise in an oiled bowl, sealed with plastic wrap, for 45
to 60 minutes in a warm place, until it is doubled in bulk. Punch it
down and kneed it briefly. Press it into an oiled 15−inch deep dish
pizza pan, until it comes 2 inches up the sides and is even on the
bottom of the pan. Let the dough rise 15−20 minutes before filling.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.

While the dough is rising, prepare the filling. Cook the crumbled
sausage until it is no longer pink, drain it of it's excess fat.
Drain and chop the tomatoes.

When the dough has finished its second rising, lay the cheese over the
dough shell. Then distribute the sausage and garlic over the cheese.
Top with the tomatoes. Sprinkle on the seasonings and Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes at 500 degrees. Then lower the temperature to 400
degrees and bake for 25 to 35 minutes longer. Lift up a section of the
crust from time to time with a spatula to check on its color. The
crust will be golden brown when done. Serve immediately.way to goway to go

wave Mom doesn't cook home made stuff like she used to.frown But her one item she still does is the Spaghetti Sauce! Yeppers this is a winner. I know cause she feeds it to me and my furs. It tastes better the next day too! applause

1 lb. ground beef/turkey (whatever you like)
fry or grill the meat (which ever you like) Mom fry's it and then drains the grease.
1 can of Hunts tomato sauce (the big can) 32 ozs.
1 can of Hunts tomato paste (6 oz can)
Mix together in a large pot.
Add the ground beef, turkey(which ever one)
Then add a package of Spatini (now this I don't know if you can find it in your grocery store anymore. So mom has brought it through on the internet) ( Use 2 1/2 table spoons of the mix if you buy it on the internet. As you get a big bag of it) Otherwise use one package.
Bring it to a very fine boil (no over cooking it!) And then let it simmer for a good 2 hours. WaLa!
Oh don't forget to cook your noodles and also take any kind of dinner rolls and put them in the oven according to package. When they are done, butter them and sprinkle garlic powder on it. Very good!
