Kay’s “Company’s Coming” Layered Potato Casserole

Posted by Hallee on Mar 22, 2012 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I remember my mom making this whenever we had company for dinner. This is the perfect “company’s coming” type of dish. It has your meat, starch, and vegetables all rolled into one casserole dish. It’s hearty, delicious, and different from the standard lasagna or baked chicken that are easy fall backs for entertaining. You can prepare it, put it in the oven, and get your kitchen cleaned up in time for company to arrive. Serve it with a tossed salad and a fresh baked loaf of French Bread, and you have the perfect meal.

Tex-Mex Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 17, 2011 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

Chili-Mac is one of my kids’ favorite dinners. I love how this is served over cornbread instead of sloppy-joe style over hamburger buns. This is a very-quick, easy to make meal – especially if you’re using leftover cornbread. I used grass-fed beef, and even with organic vegetables it’s still less than $4 per serving.

Asian Ground Beef Skillet

Posted by Hallee on Nov 16, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Oriental, Recipes

I love how this recipe is a sweet and sour flavor – something that you just wouldn’t think to pair with hamburger meat, yet it absolutely works. It takes almost no time to prepare and is a nice, quick meal when you’re in a hurry but want to feed your family something healthy. I use grass-fed hamburger meat. Coupled with organic vegetables, it’s still just $4 per serving.

The Concession Stand

Posted by Hallee on Sep 9, 2010 in Life, Parenting, Raising girls, Raising teens

At the BINGO hall is a concession stand that sells the typical fare – mostly soy hamburgers on white bread, pork hotdogs, chips with nacho cheese, frozen “pizza logs” reheated in a microwave, etc. Consequently, when I get home from the soup kitchen, I usually make a big dinner and take it to feed to the volunteers.

Quick & Easy Sloppy Joes

Posted by Hallee on Jul 9, 2010 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

My dad came up with this recipe one time. My mom was somewhere doing something and Daddy had to make dinner. He browned hamburger then started dumping things into the pan. He used home canned tomatoes and home canned green beans, which made his version amazing. I’ve not enjoyed Sloppy Joes without the green veggie since.

Menu Monday 26 April 2010

Posted by Hallee on Apr 26, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of April 26th. As far as desserts go, my niece and sister-in-law will be in town, so I’ll definitely do something chocolate, and preferably flour-free (my sister-in-law suffers from a wheat allergy.) I’ve never done one of those flour-free cakes, but if you have a good recipe, I’d love to try it!

Turkey Burgers with Basil Mayonnaise

Posted by Hallee on Dec 19, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I didn’t used to like ground turkey. Back in my previous life with no grocery budget to speak of, I’d buy ground turkey because it was cheaper than ground beef. But it was gristly and just didn’t taste good. I came across some ground turkey breast on a manager’s special at my grocery store and thought I’d give it another go. After much searching, I found this amazing recipe. I’ve made it twice now, tweaked it a bit here and there, and it is a WONDERFUL sandwich.
