The weather is still a little crazy — warm one day and cool the next. I’m hoping it won’t be long before it’ll be warmer. This week I’m going to do some I hope you like.

CHEESE BURGER CASSEROLE

1 pound hamburger

1 onion chopped

1 8-ounce package cheese slices

1 1/2 cups ketchup

1/4 cup mustard

3/4 t salt

1/8 t pepper

1 can refrigerator biscuits

Combine hamburger and onions in skillet. Cook until meat is slightly brown.  Drain. Add salt, pepper, ketchup and mustard and heat thoroughly. Put in casserole dish. Cut cheese into strips and place on top of meat. Top with the biscuits. Bake 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.

SUNSHINE HAM AND PASTA

1/2 cup chopped onions

2 T butter

2 T flour

1/4 t salt

Heat to serving temperature. Makes about 5 1/2 cups.

I’m still praying for all who are dealing with this mess going on. Maybe it won’t be long before things will be much better. Like I always say, live, laugh and love and remember to spend time with family and friends. God bless you all.
