Hey Elf, good to see you! Funny, I have been craving Mac and cheese as well. I think I will make it using the last of my leftover ham!

Ground beef chop suey. Basically, it is a ground beef, beef broth, bean sprouts, onion, celery, soy sauce served over white rice. My mom made this recipe when I was a kid and it is still a favorite.

SierraCook, that sounds delish! I think I am going to be forced to make gnocchi today. My youngest is having a craving. I think left to my own devices I'd be having salad.

I have never made or had gnocchi before and when I had some the other night for the first it was pretty good. Here is the recipe for the Ground Beef Chop Suey, if anyone would like it.

Ground Beef Chop Suey

1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion cut into 6 wedges
3 medium ribs celery cut into inch pieces
1 14 oz. can beef broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 lb. fresh bean sprouts
2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with cup water

In large skillet brown ground beef. Drain. Return beef to skillet with onion, celery, beef broth, and soy sauce. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes until onions and celery are crisp and tender. Add bean sprouts and cook for 2-3 minutes until heated through. Stir in cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened. Serve over white rice. Makes 4 servings.

Thanks SC! That looks like real comfort food to me.

I'm now trying to decide what kind of sauce to make for the gnocchi. Tomato based? Cream based with cheese? Bearnaise? Decisions decisions.
