No, I'm not talking about a popular Food Network celebrity. I discovered 30 minute meals in my own kitchen when I had three children still in diapers, at one time! I thought it would be great to share favorite quickee dinners. I keep getting in the "what's for dinner" rut and the kids are tired of the same old meals, so if you have a recipe you'd like to share, I'd love to try it! Here's mine.

Hamburger Stroganoff (feeds 4-6)

8 oz of sour cream

1 can of cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken/mushroom mix)

1 lb. of ground beef

2-3 cups of minute rice

Start your minute rice in a separate pan. Brown your ground beef in a skillet. Add in cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. Turn heat down to a medium heat, and stir frequently (around 10 minutes). Sauce will turn a little darker to a gray color and sour cream taste will lessen. When you can barely taste the sour cream, it's done. My kids don't like sour cream, so I cook it a little longer so they can't taste it at all. Put rice on a plate and pour sauce over it. You can double this if you have a large family... we do! It's lunch time here in Virginia and I think I'm going to go make some now

What's your recipe?

I was at the grocery store and saw a package of tiny cubes of ham (I'm talking tiny). I grabbed that and some potatoes and onions. For a really quick meal, I boil the potatoes (skin on) while I do other things. Then take them out and cut in half to cool a bit. In a pan, saute olive oil and garlic. I then put big pieces of onion in, which can be put on MY plate when cooked and taken OFF the children's plates - after all, they would think I was poisoning them!  :)  Cut the potatoes into smaller chunks as you add them in next. Then just toss!  I like to add a bit of salt and a bit more olive oil - then I pepper my own on my plate. This meal is CHEAP, easy and fills them up.  One of those, "I don't have much around and don't have time to cook" meals!
