Megan’s Meatful Mondays: Harvest Skillet

My favorite blonde ten year old announced over Christmas break that she was ready to graduate from baking goodies to cooking dinner.  Her daddy applauded this proclamation in the hopes that the number of home made baked goods tempting him on the kitchen counter would decrease in number…

So, as we delve into 2013, Megan and I would like to announce a new blogging project: Megan’s Meatful Mondays.  As Megan learns to cook new beef dinner dishes, we will share them on the blog site.  Make sure that you look for Megan’s cooking adventures on Monday’s throughout the winter!

Harvest Skillet

Needs: 1# ground beef, 1/2 cup chopped onion, 3/4 cup milk, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1 cup corn (I prefer fresh or frozen rather than canned), 8 ounce package of cooked noodles (I prefer whole wheat), a touch of pepper and Lawry’s seasoning salt.  In the summertime, when I have fresh zucchini, I dice it into little pieces and put 1 cup into the mixture as well.

Stir on medium heat until it is heated through.  This will take 5-10 minutes so be patient!

    Way to go Megan! I think this will be dinner tonight. 🙂 I started cooking for the family when I was about 12 years old (back in the ’70s). My mother’s best friend was in town for an unplanned visit and invited herself to our house for dinner. She was always welcome and they only thing I could find to make were pork chops. So I remembered how mom would make them, breaded and quick fried in a pan then top them with green peppers and onions and finish in the oven. It was a big hit and my mother was very happy to come home from work to a prepared dinner and time to visit with her friend.

    • I hope that you try it, Caroline! I will tell Megan that you enjoyed her first cooking post. She is in charge of dinner tonight so hopefully we will have another recipe to share next Monday!

      All the best,
      Anne

    Great job, Megan! Sounds delicious and it’s a good way to combat that meatless Monday garbage. 🙂

    • Thank you, Carol! I will tell her. You’ll have to try the recipe and tell us what you think.

      She just cooked her second dinner so look for that story next Monday 🙂

    That Looks like an amazing Recipe that I will probably try! At my house we have also had meals where all the food on our table was grown and raised on our farm. I try to have a garden every year and most all of our meat is grown on our place. It all seems to taste that much better knowing that your hard work can provide for your family.

    I just found your blog today but have realy enjoyed reading over it so far!!
    Best wishes

    • Erin,

      Thanks for stopping by and signing up to follow! I look forward to hearing from you again. Good luck in school—I think that it is great that you are studying to be a nurse, and it sounds like you are doing a wonderful job of establishing goals as you go through college.

      I hope that you try Megan’s recipe and enjoy it. I really love Harvest Skillet in the summer time with fresh zucchini diced and added in. This is one of those dinners that my girls all clean their plates quickly–it is a big favorite!

      Take care,
      Anne
