I'm still here-Barely

Monday, October 22, 2012

I am still here. I know I haven't cooked in two weeks, but I have been battling the flu as well as activities for my sons. So, I am trying to start up again. I have decided, if I can't cook that evening, an evening of left overs it is.

I am planning my evening meal as I type this. I know it will contain a chicken of some sort, vegetables, and fruit. I have a son starting wrestling season and he needs to watch his weight. So we are cooking healthy for him and me.

Now that I am back to 100%, I am looking forward to flipping through the many cookbooks I have (and yes, I do have many) to see what is for supper.

Till then.

    Hi Bikermom129,

So sorry to hear of your challenges in the past days/week. I think your idea of leftovers when no time to cook is a great idea. No shame there! I would imagine having your son on a healthy eating regimen will help also. It's always good to have a "buddy" for this kind of thing. Can you walk together, too? You'd have to do it after dark if he's one of those kids who won't be seen with his mom. ;D

I keep on asking my husband to walk with me, but so far no luck. I'll keep asking though!

Glad you're feeling better.

Day 6 Recipe-Bar B Cups

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I am making one recipe per day from my many cookbooks.

Tonight was Bar B Cups. I remember eating these as a kid and have had many versions.

3/4 lb ground beef
1 onion diced
1 tbsp brown sugar
3/4 cup bar b cue sauce (I used Kraft original)
1 tin hungry jack biscuits
3 slices cheese

Brown ground beef and onion. Drain off fat. Return to pan and add brown sugar and sauce. Meanwhile, flatten out biscuits to line an ungreased muffin pan. The biscuits act as muffin cups. Fill muffin cups with meat mixture and top each with 1/4 of a slice of cheese. Bake 400* for 10 mins.

My kids loved these. They are great cold the next day and reheat well. I think next time I'll use pizza sauce and mozzarella.

Already looking for tomorrow.

2 cans chili beans

Brown meat and onion. Add seasonings and juice. Bring to boil and simmer one hour. Add chili beans and simmer another 30 mins. I serve with crackers and cheese.

If you would like cinnamon roll recipe let me know and I will send it.

Till tomorrow.

Monday, October 08, 2012

Well, Sunday didn't go as planned. I woke up late for church, headed to my sisters and watched my niece all day. Then I didn't return home until 8:00 that evening. So nothing was cooked and in retrospect little was eaten at all that day. Recipes for today will be coming.

Stay tuned.....
