#1.  Melon. What’s your favorite kind?

Have to be honest, not a huge melon fan.  I’d have to go with watermelon if I absolutely had to choose.

#2.  Orange citrus. What’s your favorite – oranges, nectarines, navel oranges, tangerines, etc.

Mmm, oranges.  I especially love the smell of oranges and orange juice dripping down my chin.

#3.  Oreos. What kind is your favorite? (Don’t eat Oreos? What about olives?)

OMG I cannot tell you how much I LOVE Oreos.  Please see this post for details.  Oreos are my weakness, really they are.  If I had to choose between Oreos and my fiance, well I’d probably choose my fiance, but it would be a tough call.

#4.  Pot pie. Share a recipe. (No pot pie recipe? What about a casserole or some other hot meal you bake?)

I’ve never made a pot pie although my fiance has requested it.  Here’s a recipe for Chicken Divan that my mom makes.  I haven’t baked it in a long time, but this might be the inspiration I need.

Chicken Divan

Serves 8

Stuff you need:

  1. 4 or 5 chicken breasts, cooked and cut into chunks
  2. 2 bunches fresh broccoli, cooked crisp
  3. 1 1/2 c. mayo
  4. 1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  5. 3 cans cream of chicken mushroom soup
  6. 2-3 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  7. 2 c. Italian bread crumbs
  8. 2 Tbsp. melted butter

What to do with that stuff:

  1. Arrange broccoli in bottom of large baking dish.
  2. Place chicken pieces on top.
  3. Combine sauce ingredients and pour over top.
  4. Sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Combine bread crumbs and butter and sprinkle over dish.
  6. Bake uncovered 30 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

May you never have to make that choice…

claire — my mom’s recipe calls for curry but she has never used it. I might have to try it next time I make the dish.

Tina Kubala — haha! I hope I never have to make that choice either 😉

LOL I think you like Oreos! Have you ever made an Oreo dessert?

Karen – I have made the instant Oreo pie that is put out by Jello (I think). Man can I eat that up. I have a couple Oreo dessert recipes in my file for after my wedding 😉 Any other suggestions?

Here’s another suggestion – Oreo Cheesecake!

My youngest daughter requested Oreo Cheesecake for her birthday last year, and that’s the recipe I used. It’s really delicious.
