I am not used to cooking. My ex did almost all the cooking for the last 10 years. I would cook grilled sandwiches and such but nothing of any substance. Tonight I decided I would try to improvise a dish from stuff I had laying around at home.
When I was at Meijer last week I saw hamburger helper and I looked at some of the stuff that they offered, and then I looked at the ingredients and thought why would I want to feed my kids the crap that is in these? SO tonight I decided to make my own version of hamburger helper.
- 1lb of Hamburger
- 8 ounces of shredded Colby Jack cheese
- half a stick of butter
- Mini-Shell noodles
- A tiny bit of steak seasoning.
When I cooked the hamburger I decided I would put in a cup of water to help separate the grease. It worked out really well. The hamburger was delicious, but not greasy at all. I made Chloe a bowl without any hamburger in it, she is very picky, and then mixed in about 8 ounces of cooked hamburger, added some extra cheese and viola!
It went over well, Kenny came back for seconds and Chloe had a bowl of the stuff with the hamburger in it too. I was so happy. I was full after one bowl myself though.
That makes me a happy camper! Kids telling me my cooking is good made my night.
Have a wonderful night.
