Tricky Dick Likes HOT Tamales!

I wonder if Michelle O has her own book of recipes?
Dinner at home, with mother cooking, is an important event now in the lives of Tricia and Julie Nixon, whose parents, the Vice President and Mrs. Nixon, are so busy with official duties that dining at home with the youngsters is a rare event. Mrs. Nixon has compiled a book of recipes that her husband and the children especially like, and she selects from them on the infrequent occasions when she can prepare the family dinner. Here are two Nixon specials:
Glorified Rice

2 cups cooked rice
1 cup cubed pineapple
1 chopped apple
25 marshmallows
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup whipped cream

Mix ingredients, except the whipped cream. Let stand an hour. Fold in the whipped cream before serving.

Hot Tamale Pie

2 cups ground cooked meat
1 cup gravy or meat stock
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup tomatoes, canned or fresh
1/2 small onion, minced
black olives
1 teaspoon salt
1 quart cooked corn meal mush, very stiff

Mix meat with the gravy or stock, add chili powder, tomatoes, olives, salt and onion. Line baking dish with cold cooked corn meal mush, fill with the meat mixture and put the balance of the mush over top in broken pieces. Bake 20 minutes in a hot oven.
