Ground beef comfort

Ground beef:
brown the ground beef in a skillet
season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce (3 -4 good squirts)
when the juices start to evaporate its done!

Mashed potatoes:
cut 1 MamaFaye of potatoes (see the header on the blog) into 2" chunks
boil until fork tender in salted water
Mash with butter and milk  (for about 1/2 bag of potatoes, I use about 1cup milk and 1/2 stick butter)

nuke some peas

make a pile on your plate and enjoy!!

Rice Noodles and Veg

chop veggies:
- carrots (thin)
- broccoli (small pieces)
- garlic
- peppers ?

soak noodles:
- put the number of noodles you think you will need for the number of people you are going to serve into a bowl
- boil water
- cover noodles with very hot water
- soak about 5 minutes

Skillet on the stove to heat

- about 1:3 ratio of sesame to olive / canola oil in the pan
- when it is hot, add the carrots, followed shortly by the broccoli
