December food

Adam made lasagna from the recipe on the box.

Jasmine helped me make our favorite crockpot potroast for Christmas eve.

Crock Pot Roast
3-6 lbs beef roast
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 packs Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix
2 c water
1-3 c each carrots, celery, potatoes cut into 3” pieces

Mix soups, beefy onion mix and water in crock pot. Add meat. Cook on low 6- 8 hours. Add the vegetables. Turn to high and cook 2-3 hours more. You can speed it up by turning it to high earlier.

Jessica made drummettes and cheesy muffins on Christmas day for supper.

Jessica's Teriyaki Chicken Wings
Package of drummettes (approximately 14)
1/3 c soy sauce
½ c granulated sugar
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Measure 1-2 cups of flour and put in paper or plastic bag. Rinse drummettes in cool water. Place drummettes 3 or 4 at a time in the bag. Seal and shake until chicken is flour coated. Tap off extra and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375F for 35-45 minutes.

While chicken is baking, mix soy sauce, sugar, garlic powder and sesame seeds in a small bowl. Adjust sugar and soy sauce to taste.

When chicken is done, remove from oven and let cool. Stir sauce again. Roll each drummette in the sauce and place on serving plate. Pour excess sauce over the plate of wings.

Cheesy Muffins
½ c butter, softened
2/3 c sugar
2 eggs
2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 c milk
2 c grated cheddar or jack cheese

Cream butter and sugar with fork until smooth. Add eggs and stir until well blended. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Stir so baking powder is evenly distributed. Measure the milk. Stir a little milk into the butter mixture. Stir a little of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Repeat adding small amounts of milk and flour to the butter mixture until they are all mixed together. Add cheese and mix. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes. Makes about 20-24 muffins.

I forgot to take a picture after they cooked. Basically they look like a mini meatloaf with vegetables on top. They originally just called for plain hamburger but it was too blah and tough so we created a meatloaf-type recipe instead.

Hobo Dinner
1 ½ -2 lb lean ground beef ½-1 cup ketchup or tomato sauce
1 egg beaten ½-3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal
2 yellow squash sliced 2 -3 lg. potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
4 carrots sliced 2 lg. onion thinly sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
you can add whatever vegetables you like
Mix ground beef, ketchup, egg and oatmeal. Form into six patties. Place each on a square of aluminum foil. Place vegetables on top of each patty. Add salt and pepper. Wrap foil tightly around each patty. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 375F for 1 hr to 1 hr 15 min.
