1/3 cup onion
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. salad oil
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's Tomato Soup

2. Add remaining ingredients.

3. Cook over low heat for 15 minutes; stir now and then. Makes 1 1/2 cups sauce.



Alternate pieces of meat and vegetables on skewers. Broil 10 to 20 minutes or until done, turning and basting every 5 minutes. Serve kabobs with remaining sauce. Also delicious on hamburgers, chicken and shrimp.

Meats: Sirloin, lamb (leg or shoulder), bologna, canned meats and frankfurters.

Vegetables: Mushrooms, tomatoes, green pepper, zucchini, potatoes (canned), cucumbers and pineapple.


I always get a little nervous when retro dads cook with hot coals while wearing nothing but their swim trunks.

1 small clove garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 medium red pepper, chopped
2 medium ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and cubed
3/4 tsp. paprika
salt and pepper
3/4 cup small pimiento-stuffed Spanish green olives
6 lamb loin chops, 1 to 1 1/4 inches thick

Heat 2 tbsp. of the oil in large skillet over medium heat; add garlic, vegetables, paprika, 1 tsp. salt, dash pepper and olives. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently until vegetables are tender. Spoon olive relish in center of heated platter and keep warm. Pour drippings from skillet. Season chops with salt and pepper. Heat remaining oil in skillet; add chops with salt and pepper. Heat remaining oil in skillet; add chops and saute 5 to 6 minutes perside, or until lamb is done as you like it. Arrange chops around olive relish.


If it wouldn't lift and tilt, you'd bang the thing against the kitchen table a few times to loosen the ice.
