Old-fashioned Midwest Beef and Noodles



This is a Midwest Classic!



Like meatloaf, biscuits and sausage gravy, Johnny Marzetti, lemon meringue pie, jello salads, pot pies, hickory nut cake, creamy chicken casserole, tuna and noodles, nut bread, you get the picture: old-fashioned Midwest church basement supper fare!

Beef and noodles fits into this category perfectly…

Most beef works well; leftover is great, steak, chuck roast, or use deli beef.  Add mushrooms, if you like, add your favorite noodle, thick or thin, and season to your taste.




No matter where you live and how old-fashioned this dish is…

It’s winter here, it's cold and it's time for a hearty dish.

It’s easy, delicious, simple comfort food at its best!

I’m thinking you’ll like like this ~ 

So get your fork ready and make your tummy happy!

  3. Pam, Ahhh...memories! Beef and noodles were a staple when I was growing up in Michigan. It's comfort cold weather food all the way. Of course we haven't had much cold weather down here this year and the next week to 10 days don't look bad either. We had 2.5 inches of snow in early January and that's been about it. 50s and 60s most days. Very mild winter! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Ha, Grace! I grew up in the South, meaning very little snow and bitter cold. But was born in the Midwest and live there now. Good and bad both places. 😊

    1. Thanks, Karen! I really like egg noodles also and sometime want to try making my own instead of buying a package of them.

  18. Having seen a comment by you, on another blog, and realizing that you too, voted for our new POTUS, I just had to come over, and tell you, how happy you made me. It is wonderful to find bloggers who are Conservative.

    Not always necessary, for them to be so, but awfully nice, just the same.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …









Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
