We'll start tonight's dinner - Meatloaf and Scalloped Potatoes.
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium green pepper, diced
1/2 cup milk
1 or 2 slices of bread, torn into small pieces
Preheat oven 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 degrees Celsius. Mix all ingredients together. (I like to use my hands, it gives it a more homey taste - but make sure you wash your hands!) Place in a greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Serve and enjoy!
6 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
1/4 green pepper, diced
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken
1 onion, diced or 1 package Lipton Onion Soup mix
1 package shredded Colby/Jack cheese
1/2 cup French's French Fried Onions
Preheat oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit/200 degrees Celsius. After peeling and shredding potatoes, mix with sour cream, green pepper, onion or soup mix, cream of mushroom/chicken soup, and half bag of shredded cheese. I like to use my hands to mix ingredients, it just gives it that homey taste. ;0) (Please make sure your hands are clean!) Put in 9x13 inch lightly greased pan, sprinkle remaining cheese on top, cover with foil, and bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle French's French Fried Onions on top and bake for another 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
I served these amazing dishes with green beans and fresh bread from the local bakery. It was very good!
I follow a blog http://theamericanhomemaker.blogspot.com/ , the lady that writes it is Angie. She is amazing! You should go over and check out her blog! She blogs about EVERYTHING, cooking, raising her three children on her own, work, friends, church, crafts! And she does it all with an apron on!! Did I mention she's amazing?! She has inspired me to make my dinner table look nice for my family. This is what I came up with for tonight. Doesn't it LOOK good? I think it turned out rather nice myself.
