1 (32 oz.) package semisweet chocolate bits
5 tablespoons Crisco
Melt chocolate bits and Crisco in double boiler, over simmering water (not boiling). Mix well.
Line a jelly roll pan with wax paper; put paper in lengthwise so that the sides and ends of the pan are covered. Pour chocolate into pan when completely melted and spread evenly with back of spoon. Drop pan onto counter top to pop out any bubbles. Put pan in fridge for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Remove and cut our hearts with a heart cookie cutter, or make one using an empty tuna can with the ends cut out. Use pliers to bend the can to a heart shape. You can get 4 rows of 6 from the pan. Return entire pan to fridge until hard. Pop hearts out and decorate with melted white chocolate by drizzling it in a squiggle pattern. Looks great stuck in the side of ice cream or pudding.

PHYLLIS' CABBAGE AND MACARONI
macaroni***salt and pepper
Cook whatever amount of macaroni is needed to feed those eating, remembering that 1 cup of uncooked macaroni doubles when cooked. While macaroni is cooking, heat up a wok (an iron frying pan will work, but wok is better). Cut up some cabbage, celery and onions and add to the wok that you've put some oil in and some margarine for flavor. Stir-fry the veggies until done. Add salt and pepper to taste to the veggies. When macaroni is al dente, drain and add to veggies in the wok. Add caraway seed. Stir; cover and simmer until the flavors marry.
1 package imitation crab
celery chopped fine
