What's for Dinner?

I have some frozen beef patties thawing in refrigerator.  Have been wondering what to do with them..So I did some online recipe hunts and came up with this fast and easy solution.

Hamburger Patties baked in a 9x 13 pan with a can of cream of mushroom mixed with a can of milk and a package of onion soup mix.   So very easy...You just put patties in bottom of  9 x 13 pan.  Pour soup mixture on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, or until dish is brown or bubbly.

How good does that sound?  I will cook some mashed potatoes and make a salad to go with it as well.  I also have part of a Pineapple cream cheese pie left over from the other night. 

Tonight am also thinking about making some Bellini"s.  If you haven't enjoyed a Bellini it is time to try one or two out!

                                       Bellini Recipe

1    16 oz bottle peach nectar, chilled
1    bottle of Prosecco sparkling wine,  chilled

That sounds nice and refreshing and I will need that after the humid day we've had today here in Oklahoma.

I have always wanted to try the Mimosa drink as well....

Equal parts of chilled Champagne and orange juice 

I am all about fast and easy recipes of any kind.  If you have one you would like to share with me feel free!  Have a blessed day.

Inspiration from family

If your like me every now and then you get into a fashion funk.  While on vacation I watched my sister in law rock some beautiful summer dresses.  I normally  wear my capri's and blouses.  So I bit the bullet and bought three summer dresses.  So thank you Dana for showing me the newest trend here in Oklahoma.  Dana and my brother Thomas has 5 children between them fulltime.  Thomas works out of state so he is gone every other week. Which leaves Dana to be with the family fulltime.  She seems to handle it all well including the ex wife.  Am proud to call her my sister in law!

My brother Stacy inspires me to be a better person.  He works full time and is on top of everything.  He cooks every night after he gets home from his job.  I do not do much cooking.  Mr. C loves to cook so I get lazy and assume he will the week he is home.  The week he is gone we eat sandwiches and such.  After visiting with Stacy and his partner and kiddo's I went home and cooked! Thank you Stacy for inspring me to be a better person at  home.

I miss my mom who inspired me to be a good consumer. She taught me the importance of the dollar.  She was a single mom and worked full time.  She knew how to stretch the dollar.  Am so glad she taught me how to stretch the dollar.

Thanks to many more family members for inspiring me as well.

Surfside Texas Trip

I am so ready for vacation! 23 family members and a few friends are going to the beach for some much needed fun  time!  I have been shopping and trying to get ready for our trip.  My middle son does not want to go, which breaks my heart. He does not travel well at all.  Just call him a homeboy! Am glad Blake and Trevor are going!
I will go get Trevor's vacation clothes tomorrow.  He says he is too busy to go with he will have to like  what I get him..
We rented 3 cottages at Surfside Beach Texas.  We will spend the first night and day at Galveston.  We are planning on riding the ferry, and touring the off shore oil rig.  Not sure what else they have planned.
Am looking forward to making memories with my family members.
