Is it warm where you are today? We are LITERALLY freezing here in Utah. The winds are blowing like crazy and the cold is bone chilling. I was getting use to the warm, I am not ready for HOT yet but mid 60’s I would love to see more of.
Yesterday I was talking to my mom and Paula and was trying to figure out what I wanted to make for dinner. I haven’t sat and figured out our menu this week yet, I was too busy enjoying the free weekend to be bothered with chores of any type. So, it was getting later in the day and I hadn’t started dinner yet. I told them I had egg noodles and ground beef. They both immediately said “Beef Stroganoff”. Since I LOVE Beef Stroganoff and consider it a comfort food and it was rainy, gray, and cold yesterday I decided that is what I wanted to have. Problem though, I always make the hamburger helper version and I didn’t want that. Enter my mom and her super simple and yummy recipe.
Nettie’s Beef Stroganoff
1lb ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 heaping tablespoon of sour cream (add more or less to taste)
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
granulated garlic (to taste)
ground oregano (to taste)
1/2 small yellow onion finely chopped
1 bag of wide egg noodles (boiled)
Brown your ground beef with the onion and season while you’re browning it. Drain your ground beef and then add the cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. I tasted it often because it seemed like it needed more seasoning after the ground beef was drained. Once I had it all warmed through I let it sit on low for a couple hours so the flavors could mix well. When it was done it looked like a nice thick gravy. I served it over cooked wide egg noodles but you could also serve it with mashed potatoes or rice.
I am happy to report that the family (aside from Nate who was off at school) really enjoyed it. I love that my kids LOVE brussel sprouts so we had those along with a roll with it.
After dinner since we ate pretty early for Family Home Evening we played Disney Monopoly. We all had so much fun. I always thought the younger kids were too young for us to all play together but they did awesome. In the end the 7 year old beat us all!
This was the start of his *reign of terror*. When the game ended he had taken me and the 10 year old out of the game, 4 of the other kids had teamed up against him and he owned every piece of property on the board with castles on every one except the 3 he picked up at the end as his final rent payment from the team. He was so excited with his win, I wish I would have gotten a picture of him.
I think we may have more game nights in our future. The game ended up lasting 3 hours (I let them stay up late so we could finish) and everyone except the 2 year old goose stayed with the game the whole time. It was awesome.
