House warming oven enchiladas

Today it’s a little bit of casseroles (again) and skillet meals, with a sweet recipe for bars.

We are still in the season of winter or as I said in a previous column, “it’s not a season, it’s an occupation.” The problem is….we don’t get paid for shoveling or using a snowblower. However the manager of our park does a great job clearing the roads and will plow the snow from your driveway, within the park! Thank goodness for “Bob-cats” to do this job. When it’s been so cold we’ve opened cupboard doors and placed rugs, etc. at the base of the doors, as I’m sure many of you have.  Hang in there, spring is coming, but not soon enough!


 1 lb. hamburger
1-15 oz. can French-style green beans, drained
1 can cream of celery soup, undiluted
1-4 oz. can mushrooms
1/2 c. sour cream
1/8 t. thyme leaves, crushed
Dash or two of pepper
1/4 c. dry bread crumbs
2 T. butter or margarine, melted

Brown meat in skillet; drain off excess fat. Stir in beans, soup, mushrooms, sour cream thyme and pepper. Pour into a 1-1/2 qt. casserole. Combine bread crumbs with melted butter; sprinkle over casserole Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or till heated through.   Makes 6 servings. Note: The small amount of thyme gives this recipe a nice flavor. Also, if you don’t have brad crumbs, use saltine cracker crumbs.

1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

Thought for the Day: Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together.
