"I can do hard things" - Elaine S. Dalton
I think we are all doing hard things with all that is going on.We need to remember we are not alone. We still have each other, we're all just a touch of a computer away.
I thought I would put a few recipes from my food storage binder here for you....
Hamburger Green Bean Casserole
Brown a pound of hamburger and drain. Place in a 9x13 pan. To this add two cans of drained green beans and two cans of tomato soup, 1/4 tsp of onion salt, this is optional. Mix all together and top with mashed potato leftovers or mix from dry instant potatoes. Bake 350 till potatoes are golden....
I put cheese on the potatoes before baking but you don't have to.
Also, I have used leftover taco meat in place of the hamburger, this is a wonderful version.
Maidrites (a loose meat sandwich in case you don't live in the midwest)
Brown and drain a pound of hamburger, 1 tsp dry onion if you want, I leave it out. Add a can of chicken broth and cook till broth is gone.
Serve on buns like you would hamburgers, same toppings, I like mine plain though.
Dick's Mom's French Dressing
1 c. oil
1 c. ketchup
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. vinegar
1/4 tsp each of garlic powder, celery salt, parsley, dry minced onion
Shake well before using.
I store it in a quart jar, this is a family favorite.
With lettuce growing in the gardens this is a fantastic time for this recipe!
Now is the time for you to be looking through your recipes to find your budget friendly recipes, perhaps what recipes you had in your food storage binder.
We need to stay the course, I suggest you be getting ready for the second wave for the virus in the fall.
Hopefully you have planted some plants to give you food. If you have a garden then you are a busy bee! Be studying how to do things like blanching and freezing or dehydrating or canning, these would all be worthy to learn right now.
Missy says don't let all this get you down. Yes, it is a bit more work but you can keep pushing on no matter what.
So I thought I would give you pics of around the house...
