Mama's Taco Salad
I love this salad because you can do so much with it. for myself I eat it like a taco salad with salsa, my husband likes to eat it with regular dressing on it.
Here are the ingredients:
Tomato cut into squares
Cheese cut into squares
Hamburger fried and crumbled
Nacho Cheese Chips Crumbled
Canned Kidney Beans (optional)
With this salad you can add as little or as much ingredients as you like. It's also very versatile
Note: You can also wrap it up in a flour tortilla for a burrito.
Chicken ala King on Toast
1 jar chicken gravy
1 can boned chicken
1 can of veg-all
Add the can of veg-all and the chicken to the chicken gravy. Heat till hot. Make toast and pour the chicken ala king on the toast.
No Egg, No Milk, No Frosting, Cake
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. sugar (sugar substitutes don't seem to work well)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 c. margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. minus 1 Tbsp. water
Mix well. Pour into greased and floured cake pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until springy to the tough, at 350*.
The Wise Chicken
When you clean a chicken or turkey for cooking save the pieces in the freezer until you ready to make gravy or soup. Just boil it for awhile to get a good stock. You can always freeze the stock as well. I usually leave a little meat on the bones to add more flavor.
If you want less grease just let it cool in the fridge and later scoop off the grease floating on top.
Potatoes & Corn
Here's another favorite of my kids. Make some fried potatoes and when they are done pour a can of creamed corn over it and stir it up. It helps get some vegetables in them.
Emergency Milk Substitute
Ever find yourself making a recipe that calls for milk and you ran out? Try non dairy creamer. If you mix it with warm water it won't clump.
Emergency Egg Substitute
Need an egg try using mayo. It's made with eggs and it will add a moistness to your recipe.
Mac & Dogs
This is a favorite of my husbands.
1 box mac and cheese
3 hot dogs sliced thin
Make the mac & cheese as instructed.
Cream of Mushroom Favorites
Try adding a small can of cream of mushroom soup to some rice. It's like gravy on rice. You can also use it like gravy on mashed potatoes.
My brothers favorite is over tater tots.
