Oriental Cabbage Salad

1 small head cabbage (chopped)
8 green onions (sliced thin)
3 chicken breasts (marinated in teriyaki, cooked and chopped)
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
2 packages Top Ramen

1/4 cup sugar
8 Tablespoons rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 season packets from the top ramen

Mix the dressing before hand so that the sugar and seasonings can disolve. Mix all the salad ingredients together then poor dressing on top, mix in well and let stand in fridge untill ready to eat. I like it made at least 1/2 a day early so that dressing can soak into salad. Mix again before serving to get the dressing well distributed.

Easy Chocolate frosting

6 tablespoons butter (softened)
2 2/3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a bowl cream butter, sugar and cocoa, gradually add milk and vanilla beating well, you may need to add a little more powdered sugar to get it to the consitency that you like, frost cake and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Bars

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
2 egg s
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
dash salt
2 cups quick oats

Preheat oven to 350*. In a bowl beat softened butter with sugar and brown sugar till smooth, add in eggs and vanilla, mix in baking soda and flour and then finally oatmeal, press into the bottom of a texas sheet cake pan and cook for 12 to 15 minutes being careful not to over bake. After cooling for about 10 minutes spread a very thin layer of peanut butter on top, then frost with chocolate frosting, you can garnish the top with broken up reeses peanut butter cups, but are delicious without. makes about 3 dozen good size bars.
