Good Evening Ladies and Germs Gentlemen!
I’m posting a dinner recipe pretty late today, but maybe I’m posting it just in time for any of you who have just gotten home from a long and arduous work day! This recipe is so quick and easy and delicious that your family (or self or pet or neighbor) won’t believe that you haven’t been slaving away all day to make it. This gem comes again from our favorite cook book!
Pulled from The I Hate to Cook Book (1960) by Peg Bracken.
Cook half a cup of rice while you fry one pound of crumbled hamburger and two chopped onions in two tablespoons of butter. Add the rice to it. then add:
1 1/2 cups canned tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 package frozen cut green beans
Cover this now and simmer it till the beans are tender but still green – about 15 minutes.
See? Easy peasy! Now you can sit back and relax with your favorite beverage in your hand (I’m going through a Coke Slurpee phase myself right now) and enjoy the rest of your night!
