Fine Dinning

by Andrew Bertone

Every once in a while we like to try something new for dinner. Usually we find a really interesting recipe online that looks really good, so we either write it down or save it in our online cookbook. Today our choice was either going with a hamburg and macaroni soup or a hamburg and green bean soup. We chose the hamburg and green bean soup because it had rice in it and it looked easier to modify to our children's tastes.

It was a surprisingly easy recipe to follow, as most of the online ones are, being written for the common person, by the common person. You simply brown the ground beef, add your desired seasoning, then add some tomato soup and some tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, add the rice and veggies, and turn down to a simmer. Once the rice is cooked you remove it from heat and let it cool before serving. Pretty simple, huh?

It may not look like much but it actually taste very good. Next time we make it we plan on trying peas instead of green beans, and adding some more spices, but those are simple changes.

Of course the best way to serve this would be in a bread bowl, which we didn't have or with flaky roll, which we also didn't have. If push comes to shove you can easily serve it with bread and butter,... hey what do you know, we had that. :)

As long as you don't have any picky kids, or guests, you should end up with a lot of satisfied eaters and a few people asking how it was made. With any luck you won't have to make room in the fridge for leftovers, just find someone to help with the dishes.
