Marvelous Monday's!!!!

Happy Monday! Back to the grind .. I know ugh!!! I am going to pick out something super easy for you for today!
This is one of my fav's... Sweedish Meatballs and noodles. I like it with mashed potatoes also. But I am a noodle girl. You can make this on Sunday if you want also!

I make homemade meat balls however I know a lot of you do not. And I promised this to be easy, so my recipe will include frozen meatballs. Shhh!!

16 meatballs
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 can of water
1 jar of mushrooms
Egg Noodles

Take your meatballs and place them in a greased casserole. In a bowl, mix the soup and the water until it dissolves. You can add more water if you need to, but just a little bit at a time!
Add your mushrooms. Pour over top of the meatballs and Bake at 350* for 1/2 hour- 45 minutes, until everything heats through!

Cook egg noodles as directed. Place on plate, pour gravy and meatballs over noodles. Serve with green beans!! YUM-ME!


Home cooked dinner Sunday's!

When I was a little girl my mom always had dinner at 1:00 PM! If anyone had to go to mass at Noon we ate right after. She always made yummy dinners like roasts and potatoes or homemade spaghetti or BBQ chicken. We always had a wonderful meal! Today I am going to share with you a casserole that we love. Yes, we found the recipe in the Taste of Home cook book! We love Taste of Home!

This is called the Spinach Sausage Bake. You could serve this at a brunch, or for dinner. We liked either way! Mangia!~
