Sorry for no post for Monday had a hectic weekend but fun... Would like to congratulate Grumpy's son Kelly for his win at the Hockey Challenge Cup in Vancouver.. I know that coaching is different then  playing but I am sure that the adrenaline must be the same...PROUD PROUD PROUD....

Here is the menu for this week.

TUESDAY     Swedish Meatballs
WEDNESDAY     Crockpot Smores
THURSDAY     Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry
FRIDAY     Sesame Chicken Kabobs


  • 1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs, about 3 slices bread
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion or 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half or light cream


Combine bread crumbs, onion, salt, pepper, nutmeg and 3/4 cup milk in a large mixing bowl. Let milk soak into crumbs for a few minutes. Gently stir in ground beef until well blended; form into balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Brown meatballs in butter and oil in a large skillet; remove with a slotted spoon to a 2 1/2-quart baking dish. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of drippings; stir flour into drippings. Cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Stir in beef broth and cream. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens and boils for a minute. Pour over Swedish meatballs in baking dish. Bake Swedish meatballs at 325° for 35 to 45 minutes. Swedish meatball recipe serves 6. 
I use a frypan that has an oven proof handle that way it just goes right into the oven after the browning.. Serve over rice and a salad....
If your cookies tend to burn on the bottom, raise the level of the oven rack or try placing another baking sheet under the sheet that holds the cookies. I also find that if I am baking a casserole and it seems to be sticking on the bottom but the rest of the dish is not cooked I just put a cookie sheet under the casserole and it stops the bottom from burning and allows the food to cook right through..

Busy week again ....got my machine fixed so that was a great thing... starting to see the bottom of the pile of beer flats(that is where I keep all the paper orders in) ..
