Yummy Apple Dumplings

Peel and core 2 medium size Grannie Smith apples. Cut into 8 wedges. Wrap each wedge in refridgerated crescent roll (2 tubes). Cover and seal completely

Put dumplings in greased 9x13 pan.

Mix 1/3 c melted butter and 1 cup sugar. Pour over dumplings.

Carefully pour 3/4 c Sprite, 7Up or Sierra Mist (not diet) around dumplings (not on).

Sprinkle with cinnamon and/or nutmeg and bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes.

Great served warm with vanilla ice cream!

Asian Cole Slaw

Put a 16 oz bag of cole slaw mix (I like the tri colored kind) in a bowl. Add:

2 pkg Oriental flavor ramen noodles (crunched up) (save the flavor packets for dressing)
1 can Mandarin oranges (save 1/4 c of liquid)
2/3 c toasted sunflower seeds
1/2 c chopped green onions
4 oz slivered almonds

(In the past I have also added finely chopped Craisins, shredded carrots and chopped chicken to make it a complete meal)

2/3 c veg oil
1/4 c cider vinegar
1/3 c sugar
2 flavor packets from the soup
2 TBS soy sauce

Since you don't add the dressing until just before you serve it, I make the dressing in a little container and take it with me if I'm going to someone else's house or if I make it ahead at home.
