always on hand.

there are several meals that i always have on hand... perfect for those days (or weeks) when i don't quite make it to the grocery store. this is one of those meals. growing up my mom used to make it & i think her mom made it, while she was growing up. it's pretty basic but good - why else would the recipe have been passed from generation to generation?


1 lb. ground
1 bag of thawed o'brien potatoes (cubed potatoes with onions & bell peppers, found in the freezer section)
1 or 2 cans of corn

brown the ground beef in a pan, discarding any grease when finished. after browning the meat add the o'brien potatoes & corn and cook until the potatoes are soft.

best served with lots of ketchup.

My Mom used to make hash for me when I was a little girl. I think hers came out of a can though :-) I would put vinegar on it. Sounds gross? I loved it!

I do a version of this, as well. It's pretty much a tin foil dinner in a casserole dish. Ben calls it 20 Grand casserole... meaning it's what you eat when you make 20 Grand a year.

This is exactly what my mom used to make us at least once a week when I was little. I never grew to really love it and I think it hurt her feelings. Maybe my kids would like it, though...

Much better than good ol' Macn'Cheese or hot dogs, my 2 staples! It looks yum, I am hungry!

This is what my dad made my mom on one of their first dates. They went up the canyon, on a double date with their friends Grace and Glade. Dad cooked this over the fire. I STILL love it and make it all the time.

You're bringing back memories!! When I was growing up this is what my Dad used to make every time he would cook for us.
