TGIF Dinner 12/05

I am doing something with hamburger I think. I am feeling singularly uninspired so if someone has something fabulous and easy for me to whip up I would love a recipe. Its raining and nasty out so I am just in a blah space. What are y'all doing for dinner?

I'm spending the day packing for our first car camping trip of the year.
It's going to be a chore... so I think dinner will be soup from a can or scrambled eggs.

Wow Alix, for a minute there I was confused by your date, but then realized your in Canada. Hamburger, hmmm, how about some cheeseburgers with sauteed onions, mushrooms, peppers...whatever your favorite toppings are. Simple and delicious. Or meatloaf?

I dont cook on Fridays, this is my day to get a take out pizza. We like pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, and jalapenos on ours.

We are going to the fish place around the corner for our house. DW is doing low carbs again so that is an easy place for her to eat. The staff there knows and loves our daughter and she loves looking at all the fish in the fishtanks so everyone wins

Most of the world lists the day first and then the month. The US does it opposite

How about Pastichio/Pastitsio? Or - if you want something quick and easy with ground beef try this one. (You could use ziti in place of the potatoes.) Serve with steamed buttered broccoli or a salad. I'd double most everything here, and bake it in a large oblong pyrex dish, as I don't see it serving 4.

Beef, Potato & Mozzarella Lasagna
Serving Size : 4

1 lb. potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced
1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 jar (14 oz.) spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup Ricotta Cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan, Grated
2 egg whites
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Preheat oven to 350F. Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling water for 5 minutes; drain. Meanwhile, brown meat with onion in large nonstick skillet, stirring occasionally. Drain. Add spaghetti sauce to skillet.

Mix ricotta cheese, parmesan and egg whites until well blended. Spoon half of the meat mixture into 8-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with half of the potatoes; top with layers of the ricotta cheese mixture, remaining potatoes and remaining meat mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil.

Bake 50 minutes. Remove foil. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Thanks, Michele. I prefer Pastitsio, but this is quick and easy.
