Okay, so the Thrifty Thursday was about Crock Pot meals. Since I'm just blogging about my life here, you *know* I had a meal in the crock pot today, right?! Not only that, but I did it early enough to have it for LUNCH, not dinner. Well....a *late* lunch, but lunch nonetheless.
Here's the recipe:
Crock Pot Hamburger Casserole
into greased CP, slice up the following:
a few potatoes (fairly thin and they'll cook faster - I used about 5 sm. ones)
a few carrots (I used three med. ones, but I'd use more next time)
a med. onion (I love it, but if you have picky eaters, I'd chop this instead of slice it)
a few celery stalks (again, I used three)
S&P to taste
top w/ one pound of ground beef, browned
then cover with tomato sauce (I used a 15 oz. can - it actually only called for 8oz)
I cooked mine on high for a few hours, then low until lunch time.
I added a bit more S&P and it was great! Add a bit of fresh-out-of-the-oven homemade bread.....mmmmmm, a perfect meal!!
**Now, I *really* enjoy this type of down-home, family meal. I'm TEACHING my family to like them as well. My dh is willing to try most anything I put on the table. My kids are learning to at least TRY stuff and be willing to admit their tastes might change, so they have to try something each time I make it.
At least I have Talitha & Elijah - seriously, they'll eat anything! I hope Micah picks up his eating habits from them!!
