    Planning ahead

    Lots of events to attend from now until January so I like to fall back on the freezer to feed us. Big batches of soup in there and a double batch of “Taverns”. It’s a regional name that came from a little local Tavern that served them to patrons.

    2 lbs hamburger browned with chopped onions
    Drain well & salt lightly.
    In same pan add sauce of the following:
    1 (20 oz) bottle catsup then rinse out bottle with 1 cup warm water & pour on meat
    1/4 tsp. ground cloves
    2 Tblsp cider or white vinegar
    2 Tblsp sugar
    4 Tblsp prepared mustard
    1/2 tsp salt

    Simmer covered 30 minutes then add 1/4 cup Quick cook plain oatmeal. This makes a creamy mixture.

    I used to make something very similar to that with hashbrowns, particularly the freeze dried ones, instead of oatmeal. Don't know why but called it "texas hash". Can also add some Parmesan cheese and dried parsley to be more like Joe's Special.

    I have all sorts of things I can make with basic pantry ingredients plus something out of the freezer/bought on sale. Good basic food now called comfort food

    forgot to say, simmer another 5-10 minutes after adding oatmeal. Yes, serve on hamburger buns.

    I did the same thing this week, made soup, lasagna, quiche, and cooked hamburger and onions for taco's. Made two of each so that should hold us over. I also made chocolate chip cookie dough and froze it in balls to pull out when we want a sweet treat. It will thaw while we eat dinner.

    Thanks for the tavern recipe! I make basically the same thing but have never had a recipe...just wing it as far as quantities go. I do add about a quarter cup of brown sugar and half cup or so of pickle relish also.

    Sounds good, my husband loves to make soups and they are so good this time of year plus quick to heat up.

    Do you do anything special to freeze the quiche? Just wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminum foil? Or? Then how about the thawing and rewarming?
    Thanks for any help.
