thank you all so much! I checked out the link and it looks awesome! Can't wait to get grilling
I used to live in a house with like...15 other people and I had a couple of standbys:
My dad's shepard's pie: Layer in large (tin) roasting pan
Brown 1.5 pounds of ground beef with 1 medium diced onion. Season with salt and pepper: layer 1
Cover with 2 cans cream corn mixed with one corn of regular corn
Top with garlic mashed potatoes (one 5lb bag mashed with butter, garlic, and milk, sometimes I add shredded parm)
Run fork over top to create little ridges (get nice and crispy) Dot top with butter before baking at 325 degrees for about 1 hour until top is browned. Serve with crusty bread.
I made this last week and it cost me 13 dollars. It is sooo much food and it is super simple and amazingly yummy. Everyone I lived with loved it (from picky guys to foodie girls)
Also: spaghetti with a good red sauce is delicious. I brown sausage, add red sauce, chopped tomatoes, peppers and onions and garlic and let it go all day until dinner.
Anyone ever had cracklin' oat bran? It is pretty much the best thing EVER.
*Brined Turkey (Alton Brown's recipe is perfection)
*Bread stuffing with onions, green and red peppers, and chestnuts
*Mashed potatoes with homemade gravy
*Roasted asparagus and tomatoes with evoo and garlic
*Arugula and endive salad with pecans, dried cranberries, goat cheese and a maple balsamic vinegarette
*Pecan, Apple and Pumpkin Pie
I love brussel sprouts too so some years I will serve roasted brussel sprouts and onions with real maple syrup or port wine reduction
Sausage Kale Soup. I put kale in everything lately and this soup turned me on to it.
Brown one pack of sausage in soup pot (sweet or spicy- ur choice) until almost done. Add chopped onion, garlic, red and green pepper. Saute 2-3 minutes. Deglaze with splash of white wine. Add s+p, pinch each of rosemary, thyme, and cumin. Add red pepper flakes to taste. Pour in low sodium chicken or veggie stock and simmer for 20-30 minutes Add a bunch of chopped kale to the pot about 5 minutes before serving. Top with a bit of grated parm cheese. It is so so yummy. I always adjust the seasonings a bit and I've done it with beef broth and red wine and it was just as good. I change it a little bit each time I make it (which is like once a week haha)
