October Food

Here is what everyone cooked in October.

Tyler made a really easy baked bean recipe that everyone likes.

There are some things we make that we don't have an absolute recipe for and the beans are one of them. You can cook then for several hours on low heat or cook less time at a higher heat. You may want more tomato soup than the recipe calls for. You can cook less time for less mushy beans etc.

Easy Baked Beans
1 lb navy beans
¾ c white sugar
1 can tomato soup (or as much as you like)
bacon (as much as you like)
tsp salt
tsp pepper

Soak the beans over night. Boil in same water slowly for 1-2 hours (add water if needed to keep from boiling dry). Add other ingredients. Bake at 250F 3-4 hours or cook in crock pot.

Jasmine made a cooked dish with noodles, tomato soup, corn and hotdogs. It's easy to make and to double.

Jasmine's Frankfurt Noodle Bake
1 lg can tomato soup
1/3-1/2 c water
1 can drained corn
1 tbs sweet relish
1 tsp mustard
1 pkg hotdogs sliced
4c cooked spiral macaroni

Stir ingredients together. Pour into baking dish. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.

Jessica made the recipe on the back of Ragu Cheesy Alfredo sauce. It is easy to make and came out well. We doubled it.

Adam made a chicken and biscuit dish using Bisquick.

Chicken and Biscuits
1/4c mayo 1 c sliced celery
2 tbs bisquick 2 ¼ c bisquick
2 cups cooked chicken cubed ¾ c milk
1/4c shredded Cheddar cheese

Mix mayo and 2 tbs bisquick in bowl until well blended. Stir in chicken, cheese and celery. Set Aside. Mix 2 ¼ bisquick and milk just until soft dough forms. Place on surface dusted with bisquick. Roll in bisquick to coat. Knead gently ten times. Roll ½" thick. Cut with 1 ½" cutter dipped in bisquick. Place biscuits close together around edge of ungreased 9x9 pan. Spoon chicken mixture into mound in the middle of the biscuits. Bake uncovered at 425F for 18-20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and chicken mixture is hot.
