This weekend was all about food. It really was a great food weekend. I made Goolash on Friday, which is pretty easy to make. It's GREAT comfort food and I needed comfort food after last week.
Sautee one small onion in vegetable oil
Add one pound ground beef and brown
Once meat is browned, add 3/4 of a block of cheddar cheese, diced
Melt the cheese, then add 1 can diced or petite diced tomatoes
While the meat mixture is cooking, boil a box of preferred pasta
Combine pasta and meat mixture in casserole dish, crumble saltines over mixture and add sliced cheddar cheese on top of saltines
Bake at 400* for 15-20 minutes, when cheese is golden and bubbly
Saturday was absolutely fun. A friend's parents came up from Austin and her mom showed a bunch of us how to make tamales. Confession, I'd never had a tamale before Saturday, and what's better than homemade tamales? Nothing that I could see. We made pork, chicken, and fruit tamales since there was still masa left lever. I basically ate all afternoon so didn't need much dinner. I brought quite a bit home so it was lunch Sunday as well.
|Start of the chicken tamales. We made 14 dozen pork tamales|
