Days Slip By

The days have been slipping by just like sand in an hour glass. I don't know where they have disappeared.

I have started a week of holidays, and hopefully will be able to visit more often.

Valentine's Day was spent quietly here in the Phillips house. Harvey came home with some lovely roses for me. Quite a surprise as he usually buys me chocolate. Lovely red ones that seem to be doing just beautifully sitting on my coffee table.

I did try a new recipe or two during the last while. This one is a keeper. We enjoyed this for supper last night.

Beef and Corn Bake
Company's Coming Casseroles
2 lbs ground beef
1 medium chopped onion
a little cooking oil

Put ground beef, onion and oil in a frying pan. Stir to break up meat as it browns. Drain off fat and discard. Put meat mixture into a large bowl.
12 0z kernel corn
2 cans condensed cream of tomato soup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp ketchup

Put corn, soup, salt, pepper and ketchup into bowl with beef mixture. Stir to mix together with the meat.
2 cups cooked noodles

Prepare noodles according to package directions. Drain well. Combine with all ingredients in bowl. Pour into 3 qt casserole.
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese

Sprinkle grated cheese over top. Cover and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to bake until cheese is melted and bubbly.
I did cut down the meat to a little over 1 lb and it still turned out very well. We have leftovers for another meal.
Well off to visit you all.
Everybody have a great day.
God Bless.


  1. Lucky you! Beautiful Roses.

    I copied this recipe. You didn't say what type of noodles you used. I was thinking this would be a quick and easy dish with those precooked noodles. I've never bought any but think sometimes it would be nice to have them on hand for a quick meal.
    I have lots of noodles in the pantry. I wonder how this would be with the ones which start with an R.
    I keep ground beef in the freezer already browned so this would stir up quickly. I need dishes like this one for when I just don't feel like a lot of prep work.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I used regular egg noodles in this, but I am thinking that you could use any cooked pasta you wanted to.

  3. The casserole sounds yummy! I think we'll have to give it a try.

    I completely understand about the days slipping away. I can't believe it's mid-February already! Where does the time go?!

  4. Jackie, your roses are gorgeous, they remind me of red velvet.

    This casserole looks so good, all I need to do is add a salad. Thank you for another yummy dish.

    Enjoy your holidays...hugs, Linda

    p.s. The lollipops are neat, what a fun treat...L
