We're Cookin'

Good evening to all.

Friday: Did not work out, rest day.
UPDATED 11 PM- Saturday: 20 minute Turbo Jam

Today was clean the house day. Conrad went out to Lowe's and Home Depot this morning and I stayed behind to try my NEW Blueberry Cobbler coffee creamer. DELICIOUS! After I sampled that, I decided the house needed a good scrubbing. I vacuumed, dusted, washed clothes, washed sheets, swept, scrubbed bathroom and kitchen counters, scrubbed toilets, you name it. This house is clean! That should count as today's work out, but *sigh* it won't- I'll be doing Turbo Jam in a few hours.

Tonight Conrad requested I make hamburger pie. This is a dish developed by my own sainted mother. :) The recipe is as follows:

Preheat oven to 350

In a pan, fry up hamburger (I fry up one of those little rolls from Wal-Mart)
right before it's ready, add a 1/2 of a chopped onion. When the onion is soft, add a small can of tomato sauce- I've been getting the roasted garlic kind, but any SMALL can will work. That's your filling.

Then you need to get some of that Pillsbury pastry sheets. You need TWO sheets (a top and bottom). I let those get to room temp while I'm making the filling.

Anyway, grease a pan, lay out the first sheet.
Then I put down a layer of meat filling, then I take some shredded cheddar cheese (about a nice heaping handful) and I put it on top of the meat, then I layer with the last meat layer and one more layer of cheese. Then I put the top sheet of the pastry on top of it all and press the two together. Looks just like a pie! Then I put on egg in a bowl, beat it and I use a pastry brush to put an egg wash on top of the pie. Bake for about an hour.

DELICIOUS! I love this thing- Conrad does too. We have it at least once a month.

I just got done making red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing... yum, yum too!
This is our "I Love You" anniversary- the weekend we first said it. So red is for

We have been watching college football ALL DAY- and I guess this will go on through the night. Conrad is all up in arms over the Michigan upset. I say good! I always root for the underdog!
