Recipes from kendra that I gleaned from an older post:

Pork Sweet and Sour Meatballs

1-lb. pork sausage
1-lb. hot pork sausage
2- 8oz.cans water chestnuts chopped
Mix together. Brown in oven or skillet.

2-jars/bottles Kraft sweet and sour sauce
1- small-med. onion chopped
1- 14 1/2 oz. can chicken broth
3- tablespoons cornstarch to thicken
1- 14oz. can pineapple tidbits drained
1/2-1- green pepper chopped
Heat and pour over meatballs.

"Moose Plums"

1- package of Oreo cookies
1- 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened

I put the Oreo cookies in my food processor. Chop or grind them until there are no chunks.

In a bowl mix the cream cheese with the cookie crumbs until all the crumbs are moist. You can microwave the cream cheese a few seconds to make it real soft if you need to.

Roll into the shape of "Moose Plums" and refrigerate. I tripled the recipe for Wingnight. It made around 120 plums.

Grape Salad

Mix together.
1/4- 1/2 sugar
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. sour cream softened
1 tsp vanilla

Pour over 3 lbs. grapes

Top with 1 cup finely chopped pecans and 1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar.
(I usually go with 2 cups pecans and adjust sugar to the sweetness of the grapes.)
