For Christmas I bought myself two things…that wool kit I showed you earlier and this Pioneer Woman Cookbook. You can find the book HERE.
I’ve told you that I love cookbooks. I love old church-type cookbooks but my absolute favorite has LOTS and LOTS of pictures. The Pioneer Woman Cookbooks fall into that latter category.
Back in January before I was being treated for my cancer, I started paging through the book and decided that the very first recipe that sounded good and I had all the ingredients for, I was going to make. I landed on this…
I love noodle dishes…This is One-Pan Sloppy Joe Mac
What’s not to love about one pan cooking? Some recipes say there are but this one truly is.
I was so happy. I got to use my new knives for chopping. My boss at work bought all of us knife sets for Christmas. Oh my. What a treat to cook with good knives!!
I am so used to boiling noodles before combining ingredients but it totally worked to just add them in hard. I covered them to simmer and stopped and stirred a few times.
Here it is all finished. I will make this when the grandkids come. I know they will like it.
I sure liked it!! This would be good to take to a potluck.
So far, I’ve only made one recipe in the book. I’ve enjoyed paging through though. I will be sure to try more recipes once I’m back to “normal” and can eat what I want.
