1/2 c quick cook oats
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
2/3 c ketchup
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp prepared mustard

In a bowl, beat the egg and milk, stir in the cheese, oats, onion and salt. Add beef and thoroughly blend.

Shape into football shaped individual loaves. Place into a 9 x 13 pan. Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard and spoon mixture over loaves.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Immediately remove meat loaves from pan so they don't sit in the grease.

Blend cake mix with all other ingredients except chocolate syrup. Beat 2 minutes with mixer. Reserving 1/4 of the batter, add batter to greased bundt pan. Mix reserved batter with chocolate syrup, thoroughly blend. Add to bundt pan in large drops. Using a table knife, gently stir chocolate into batter. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Cool on wire rack for about ten minutes and invert onto cake plate. Cool completely before slicing. Sprinkle with confectionery sugar.

Fruit Cobbler

1 stick of margarine or butter

1 c self-rising flour
1 c sugar

Melt butter or margarine in a 9 x 13 pan in oven. Beat together sugar, flour and milk. Place dough over melted butter.

4 c fresh fruit
2 c sugar (artificial sweetener may be substituted)

Mix fruit and sweetener together. Pour sweetened fruit over dough and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour.
