When we camp in our vintage 1974 Avion trailer we need to make the most of our space and time--plus watch the heat in the summer. So when I'm cooking I get to let me creative skills flow. That's how I came up with this little wonder. It turned out great. Chris had seconds.

4 chicken skinless breasts
2 tsps yellow mustard
4 tsps mayo
4 slices fully cooked deli ham-no sugar added
1 cup parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
1/4 cup mayo
4 slices swiss cheese

Flatten chicken breasts out to an even thickness. Mix mayo and mustard together. Spread each breast with mixture. Salt and pepper nicely. Add a slice of cheese and ham to each chicken breast and then roll them up and put a toothpick in each one. Roll each breast in mayo(1/4cup) and then roll in parmesan cheese. Put in a greased 2qt microwave safe baking dish. Place in microwave on high for 7 min. Then roll them over and cook for another 5-7 mins. You can always make a little more sauce of mustard and mayo mix and put on top and then it will warm on the chicken. It is very good.

I through this together with stuff I had around. It's not bad. Simple and easy side-for grilling out or anyday of the week. We need more of those!

3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 medium size yellow squash
course salt/pepper

Slice squash lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Dip squash in oil and vinegar and then season it generously with salt and pepper. Grill about 5 min or so -covered.

Well, it's been awhile and I apoligize for that. You know how busy summer gets. We've been doing a lot of running/vacationing and camping. Well I came up with this casserole dish with leftover ham and some boiled eggs I had to use up. This would be great for around Easter time. We will all have to keep this is our recipe box.

6 cups chopped hard boiled eggs
1 pkg (160z) frozen green beans
1 medium jar pimentos-drained
3 cups leftover cooked diced ham
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons soy flour
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp worcestershire
1 tablespoons hot chili sauce
dash of tabasco
80z shreddes cheddar cheese

Start heating oven to 425 degrees. Cook beans as package directs-drain. Melt butter in sauce pan; blend in flour, mustard, salt, and pepper. Stir in heavy cream; cook, stirring, until thickened. Add worcestershire, chili sauce, tabasco and pimentos. In a 2 qt greased casserole, layers beans, eggs, ham, sauce and then cheese. I made 3 layers total. Bake in oven for about 25 minutes.
