Salmon with Lemon and Herbs
2 salmon fillets
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons horseradish

3 tablespoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
4 slices deli-style roast beef, each slice cut into 4 pieces
4 slices deli-style provolone cheese, each slice cut into 4 pieces
Make 13 cuts into the loaf of French bread, butting about ½ way down on each slice. In a bowl, combine olive oil, garlic powder and mix together well. Spread a generous amount of the olive oil mixture into each of the 13 slices. Add one piece of roast beef and one piece of cheese into each of the 13 slices. Wrap the entire loaf in aluminum foil, place near hot coals and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Sweet and Sour Meatballs

1 large red bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch strips
1 large red onion, cut into ½-inch chunks
12-ounce jar chili sauce
1 ½ cups grape jelly
