water, bullion cube, ketchup, salt, mustard. Stir into onion and garlic to make thick gravy. Add browned meat to gravy. Simmer about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes tir in 1 cup sour cream. Serve with noodles or mashed potatoes.



I love this recipe it is so refreshing. Some recipes call for 1 can of lemonade but I don't use it.

4 cups water
4 cups sugar
(dissolve sugar)
1 large box of jello any flavor
7 cups water (3 hot 4 cold)
(dissolve jello)
1 large can of pinapple juice
1 to 2 2 liter 7-up

Mix well and add to freezer bags (I use 2) and freeze 24 hours. place frozen mix into a punch bowl and break up with a knife add 7 up to consistency. If you like real slushy just 1. More punchy add 2. Also you can use the real slushy punch and put over vanilla ice cream for a treat

Heavenly Brownies

I stole this recipe from my friends blog. I will do that a lot since she has a great blog and I just want to add to mine. Hee Hee.

2 sticks butter (1 c.)
2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. nuts (optional)
3 T cocoa
4 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 jar marshmallow creme (sm jar)

Directions: Melt together butter and cocoa. Beat eggs and sugar together, and add cocoa mixture alternately with flour. Add nuts and vanilla. Bake in 9 x 13-inch pan at 35j0 degrees for about 30 minutes. Spread top with marshmallow creme as soon as it is removed from oven. Let coll and frost with the following.

FROSTING: Melt together 1/2 stick butter and 1 heaping T cocoa. Add 1/2 box Powdered sugar. Beat with 1 T milk. Spread on brownies.

**note...I used salted butter, if you use unsalted butter I would add a little salt to the brownie mix and the frosting. To make the marshmallow creme a little easier to spread, you could melt it a little by placing the jar into a bowl of hot water. I didn't have a box of powdered sugar, I just added until it was the consistency that I wanted
