Heat for a few minutes, then place the halved bananas in the sauce and sauté until soft and slightly browned. Add the heated rum and flame. Lift the bananas carefully out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream. Spoon the hot sauce over the bananas.

(Veal with Mushroom Cream Sauce)

1 lb. veal scallops, flattened slightly, cut into 2 by ¼ inch strips

In a large skillet, heat the butter over moderately high heat until the foam subsides. Sauté the veal in batches, stirring for 1 minute until it is no longer pink. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a plate. Add to the skillet the onion, garlic, and the mushrooms. Cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add the wine and boil the mixture until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the cream, salt, parsley, and any veal juices that have accumulated on the plate and boil the sauce until it is thickened. Stir in the veal. Cook and stir until it is just heated through, then transfer to a heated serving dish. Serve the veal with rosti (potato cakes).

I think the most interesting recipe we received in the last couple of months has to be the Coconut Bread. I have not had the opportunity to make it, but soon! The most requested recipe had to be the Wheaties Rhubarb Crunch ... funny how a certain recipe will automatically become an Open Line favorite.

I suppose we will have a bushel basket full of recipes for those of you that were lucky enough to get a garden planted this year, and get it to grow! Stay cool and get ready to fill those pumpkin bags with leaves...
