1/3 cup sliced almonds

lemon juice to taste
grated nutmeg to taste
salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs, beaten

Spoon into a well-buttered  glass pie plate. Dot the top with butter and sprinkle evenly with cheese.

NEVER-FAIL FISH

serves 4

Ingredients:
4 tilapia fillets (4 to 6 ounces)
1/4 cup chopped onion
4 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped tomato
salt and pepper to taste
4 tsp dry white wine
lemon wedges to taste

Directions:
Arrange each fillet on a buttered sheet of foil large enough to completely enclose the fillet.

Combine the onion, parsley, celery and tomato in a bowl and toss to mix. Divide the mixture evenly atop the fillets. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour 1 teaspoon wine over each fillet.

Fold or twist the foil around the ingredients to created sealed packets. Grill over hot coals for 5 minutes per 1/2 inch thickness of fish or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Open packets carefully, avoiding steam. Garnish with additional parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
