Another Month Gone By...

I can't believe that almost another month has passed since my last post. My life has truly been craziness lately. I don't feel like I've had 2 minutes for anything. But...I actually finished stitching on the first part of Linda's Quaker Friendship Sampler for the Round Robin I am in.

Here is a pic:

Recipe Request:

With my life being so crazy I have had to make really quick meals lately. Here is one of my families quick TNT (tried and true) recipes. I always keep the ingredients on hand. Do any of you have a quick TNT recipe you would like to share? If so, please leave it in the comments section. I would love to try them out! :-)

Our families TNT Skillet Goulash (I know it's not really a goulash, but that is what my mother always called it, so...)
1 # ground beef (or turkey)
1 can tomato soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup (can used Healthy Request version if you want)
1/4-1/2 cup water or beef broth
4 slices American cheese or any shredded cheddar or cheddar blend
Cooked rice (amount for 4 people)

Season meat as desired and brown in a skillet that can go into oven. Drain fat. Add in soups, 1/4 broth or water and cooked rice. Stir until well blended. Add in more water or broth if needed to make desired creaminess. Top with cheese/cheese slices. Place under broiler until cheese starts to brown and become bubbly. Serve. Yum!!! :-P

Wanted to add...

If you have been under a rock this week and haven't heard about Susan Boyle you really must check this out: Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent

I love underdog stories and finding beauty in very unexpected places. This is both.

Ok, you asked. I take a rotisserie chicken and pull it off the bone and skin it. Then I boil enough water to make 4 cups of minute rice. While it is heating, I add about 2 cups of broccoli heads (frozen) and 1 large can of cream of mushroom soup. When it comes to a boil, I turn off the stove and add the rice. After about 5 minutes I add the chicken (chopped) and a cup or two of grated cheese.
Mix it all together and serve it. It makes a lot and so be prepared to have a lot of family or to have leftovers.

Hi Jinger, Ceci just asked me about you tonight and I told her you were probably very busy! Love the new blog look and your RR finish looks great! I hope to get an email update from you one day soon!

My mother used to feed this one to us as children, and we all still love it! In our family it qualifies as 'comfort food' today.

1 pound ground beef
1 can tomato soup
1 can green beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained and rinsed

Brown ground beef, add tomato soup, corn and green beans. Heat until all ingredients are hot.

Serves 4.
