What's For Dinner?

Our dinner is baking in the oven and I have a few minutes to post what we're eating. But first, do you like my blog makeover!? I have to give all of the credit to my sister Jenny. I told her what photos and background I wanted and she did the rest! She's got some mad skills on Photoshop! I think I've clicked on my blog about 20 times today just to see how cool it looks. I love it!

So, because I can't think of much else to blog about I thought I would post a good recipe. I think I got it from my sister Susan who got it from an old Lion House recipe book. I changed a few things, which I'll include in the recipe. I love this recipe because it's so easy to make and good. I also love that you don't have to cook the macaroni before you put it in the oven!

Mac & Beef Bake

2 tbp. cooking oil
2 lbs. ground beef (I use 1 to 1.5 lbs and think it's plenty)
2/3 c. chopped onion
1 c. macaroni
4 c. tomato juice (I buy two individual cans that are 11 oz. each)
1 can tomato soup
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
salt & pepper to taste

In frying pan, in hot oil, brown ground beef, onion and macaroni. Add tomato juice, tomato soup, half the cheese, chili powder, and salt & pepper.

Bake in a large casserole at 350 degrees, for about 1 hour or until macaroni is tender. Cover with cheese and return to oven until cheese melts. Makes 8 servings.

I love your blog! That's so cute. I still need to do something with mine. Thanks for posting the recipe. I'l have to try it. I'm always at a loss for dinner ideas. I've been wanting to start a recipe blog or something like that.

Great new look! Kudos to both you and Jenny. I really like the header with the great pictures of the kids. Each picture captures their personality.

Yes, great blog makeover. I especially like that your comment section implies that people don't like you if they don't leave a comment. That's perfect!

Very cute blog make-over. Your dinner looked like it was very yummy. It's almost lunch time so when I saw that I was like maybe I could make that today.

I'm so glad you're back. Your blog looks so good. I was admiring your header. I wish I could figure out how to do cool headers like that.
