Monday June 8

  • I have been a grandma 21 years - today
  • It seems like yesterday that I was a new mother
  • and now I have passed the grandma test.
  • -----------
  • I had a quiet day and put the kitchen back in order
  • it is amazing how many things come out at night....
  • so it was like a 52 pick up game
  • but now everything is back in place.
  • I made some porcupine chili-
  • I need to stay away from beans right now
  • re the tummy
  • but this recipe is just as good as the ordinary chili
  • -----------
  • 1 pound hamburger-
  • 1/2 uncooked rice
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 can water
  • 1 can diced tomatoes *not drained
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • extra water if needed
  • brown hamburger in pan and drain fat off, add the rest of the
  • ingredients- and bring to simmer- now you can choose to either put
  • in oven at 300F or continue to simmer on stove for about one hour.
  • keep lid on which ever cooking method you choose.
  • when I do this on stove top I find I need to add an extra can of water- I
  • like the oven but today it was the stove- you can also do this in slow cooker but
  • change water to 3/4 can -I don't remember how long the slow cooker takes.
  • you can also double the recipe-
  • makes a great supper with buns and salad
  • and leftovers make good sloppy joes for the next day.
  • ---------
  • I did do more than just make supper but I cannot see it--LOL
  • chores have away of coming undone and also repeating themselves.
  • hugs from Meme

i have all those ingredients here for that chili!
i am going right now and take the hamburg out of the freezer and while i am writing my ruby tuesday it will begin to thaw and if it DOESN'T, well the good old microwave will have to finish the job thawing it out!
i have never had chili with rice and it sounds good to me.

I never looked at my granddaughters birthday that way before. It's been 18 years for me and I've loved every minute of it. The Chili sounds good.

I am so far behind on reading posts, please tell your grandchild (Miss Ashley?) a belated Happy Birthday for me. You are so blessed to have them in your life, but they are even more blessed to have you!

Many hugs...........
