This is one our old favorites. I originally put this recipe on my "What's for Dinner?" page, but it is at the very bottom of the page and it doesn't have a link so it may have never been a blog post. I started Home Ec @ Home two years ago this month, but I didn't even know what a blog was at the time. A couple of months later, I started my blog, The Home Economist. I've come a long way since then and thought I would share this recipe again since we love it so much. This recipe is sweet because of the brown sugar and is great with ground beef or deer. My boys eat it by the bowl full - it's good even without a bun.
1 pound ground beef
1 med. onion chopped
1 can chicken gumbo soup (Light chicken gumbo soup is good too.)
1/2 cup ketchup
¼ cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon vinegar
2 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
Brown ground meat and onion. Drain juice and mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes.
Serve on hamburger buns.
Enter to win a 32 oz. jar of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. This giveaway is ending very soon. Use the rafflecopter form to enter and check out this awesome recipe for Coconut Oil Brownies.
My 2 1/2 year old will be in preschool 2 mornings a week in the fall. He is supposed to be "mostly potty trained" when he goes. Knowing how long it has taken to potty train my oldest, I am not expecting anything to happen overnight. But I am trying whatever I can to encourage him to use the potty.
He does not want to sit and try, but will sit if listening to a story. I found an old basket upstairs and filled it with a few favorite books and left it in the bathroom near his potty. Both boys have actually been enjoying the basket of books and it is helping my toddler to sit longer. We had some success today so it has been a big day!
I posted a few days ago about 50% off some Huggies and CVS diapers. Now many CVS stores are marking the CVS Supreme diapers 75% off making them just $2.22 a pack. I have seen reports in the blogging world of Huggies Jean Diapers being 75% off in some stores. My local store has the jean diapers 50% off, but the CVS diapers are now 75% off. It's a great time to stock up on diapers! There are also other random baby items marked at 75% off. Even some liquid Similac formulas.
My Purex Giveaway is ending soon. Use this form to enter.
