How to make Snacks

Baked tomatoes

4 Tomatoes
1 Egg
Chopped Coriander leaves
Green Chilly

Cut off the top of four large tomatoes and scoop out the pulp and seeds with a teaspoon. Break an egg in a pan and slip it into a tomato shell. Repeat the same with the other three tomatoes. Thereafter, add some chopped coriander leaves, some chopped onions, a pinch of salt, green chilly, pepper and some breadcrumbs. Finally, add a small knob of butter, Now, place the tomatoes on a greased baking tray and bake it in a moderately hot oven till the eggs are set.

3 tablespoons margarine
4 stalks of celery
chopped finely
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cans tuna, drained well
2 cans mushroom soup
1 cup crushed potato chips

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt margarine in skillet. Add celery and onion. Cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Add pasta and tuna. Mix well. Pour into casserole dish. Sprinkle with crushed potato chips. Bake for ½ hour. Serve while hot.

Grapefruit-Shrimp Stir Fry

Complicated in flavor but very quick and easy to prepare.

1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons garlic flavored olive oil
18 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup green pepper strips
1/3 cup chopped green onion, including tops
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup Florida Grapefruit Juice
1 cup Florida Grapefruit Sections

In a large mixing bowl, mix cornstarch, cayenne, soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add shrimp, tossing to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. In large fry pan or wok, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Add shrimp mixture and vegetables. Stir fry for 3 minutes over medium-high heat. Add grapefruit juice; cover and cook over low heat for 4 minutes. Add grapefruit sections and heat, covered, until grapefruit is heated, about 2 minutes.

Serves: 4.

Popcorn Balls

12 cups air popped popcorn
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1/2 cup molasses
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Put popcorn in a large bowl. Mix all of the other ingredients in a saucepan. Heat on medium just long enough for the ingredients to blend. Stir and pour over popcorn, mixing well to coat the popcorn completely. Spread mixture on a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, checking often to prevent burning. Warning: when I made this it got overdone in about 10 minutes. It took a lot less time than the 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly so they're still warm, but cool enough to handle. Grease up your hands (or just use wet hands) and form into balls.

Serves: 8
