This recipe was shared with me years ago by Ruth Adams. I am posting it here to share with her grandchildren. Ruth was an excellent cook.

3/4 C. chopped onion
1 crushed garlic clove
1 T. chopped parsley
2 T. oil
1 can (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. basil
1/2 t. oregano
2 C. water
1 lb. cooked ground beef

Saute onion, garlic & parsley in oil. Drain off excess oil. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Simmer uncovered 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Quick Saturday Night Supper

This recipe used to be a favorite of my kids because they could make it themselves. I am not sure where it originated, but my daughter Tanya, at age 9, submitted it to be published in a Cookbook put together by the Smithton United Methodist Women.

1 lb ground beef
½ c barbecue sauce
¼ tsp pepper
1/8 c chopped onion
1 tsp brown sugar
1 large can pork and beans
Pinch of garlic salt or powder

Directions: Crumble ground beef into skillet; stir while browning. Drain meat. Add remaining ingredients, simmer 15-20 minutes. Serve open face on hamburger buns. Yields 8 servings.
