California Roll-up

For each sandwich, you will need:

  • 1 slice mozzarella cheese

  • 4 thin slices cucumber

  • 4 thin slices avocado

  1. Layer the tortilla with the other ingredients.

  2. Roll it up and slice in half horizontally.

Super Frothy Soda

Each person making a drink will need: a can of soda pop (any flavor), a tall glass, a spoon, and 2 tablespoons instant dry milk.

  1. Fill the glass 1/2 full with soda pop.

  2. Mix in the dry milk and watch the drink foam. Add more soda pop as needed.

Frozen Pineapple Pie

5 full-sized graham crackers, crushed

1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine

1 can (20 ounces/567 g) pineapple tidbits, drained (reserve the juice)

1 package (3.4 ounces/96 g) instant lemon pudding mix

8 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed

  1. Place crushed graham crackers in a 9″ (23 cm) pie pan.

  2. In a measuring cup, add the melted butter and enough of the reserved pineapple juice to equal 1/2 cup. Pour over the graham cracker crumbs and stir together. Spread the cracker mixture evenly across the bottom of the pan and press in place. Chill for one hour.
