Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

Sloppy Joes

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped (or 1/3 cup dried minced onion)
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp. Brown sugar
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 Tbsp. Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp. brown mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Brown the ground beef with the onion. Drain. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes until sauce has thickened and divide between 4 hamburger buns and serve!

Note: you can freeze this as well. To freeze, brown and drain the ground beef with the fresh onion, or brown and drain the ground beef, let cool, toss in a freezer Ziploc bag and add the minced dried onion. Add the rest of the ingredients, and freeze. When you're ready to eat it, thaw it, and reheat it in a pan until it's warmed up.
