If you want to join in, just grab the banner and add your name to Mr Linky :)
I'm running a little late on posting this today, I have two sick kids at home, Jasmine with a stomach bug and Nicholas with a cold, needless to say I've been running around from one to the other, I'm exhausted already and it's not even 9am. Wish me luck!!
I gave you all a theme last week but quite honestly I don't even know if you guys will remember it because I didn't either LOL Maybe we will just stick to posting whatever recipe we want, that will make it easier for everyone.
Here's mine for today:
BANANA NUT BREAD
1/3 c shortening
1/2 c sugar
1-3/4 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c mashed ripe bananas
1/2 c chopped walnuts
Cream together shortening and sugar; add eggs and beat well. Sift dry ingreds; add to creamed mixture alternately with banana, blending well after each addition. Stir in nuts. Pour into well-greased 4-6 cup mold (I used a ceramic souffle dish).
Cover with foil and tie a string tightly around it to keep foil down. Pour 2 cups hot water in slow-cooking pot. Place mold on rack or trivet (I modified a metal veggie steamer) in pot. Cover with crockpot lid and cook on high 2 to 3 hours or until bread is done. Be sure not to check bread during the first 2 hours of cooking.
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1/2 tsp. garlic-pepper blend
1 pkg. pasteurized process cheese spread, (8 oz.) diced
2 Tbsp. milk
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 sandwich buns
In a large skillet, brown ground beef and garlic-pepper blend until thoroughly cooked. Drain.
In a 3 1/2 to 4 quart crock pot, combine cooked ground beef and all remaining ingredients except buns; mix well.
Cover; cook on low setting for 6 to 7 hours.
To serve: spoon mixture onto sandwich buns.
