slice of my life

pictures will post at some point!

Here is a picture of my Meat Rolls! I meant to take a picture of the whole pan, but they were eaten before I got a chance.
Here's the recipe:
1 lb. ground beef
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tsp. worchestershire sauce
1 tsp. oregano
(I actually don't measure this stuff any more, and it may need to be adjusted to fit your tastes. The filling should be really moist and red from that ketchup.)

Biscuit dough
(I usually follow the recipe on the Bisquick box! However, if I don't have that on hand, I almost always have stuff to make biscuits. Any recipe you like would do.)
2 and 1/4 cup Bisquick
2/3 cup milk

Mix each part in a seperate bowl. Roll out the dough into a rectangle with a rolling pin, on a floured surface. Spread the meat mixture on the dough evenly. Roll it up like a jelly roll, and slice in 12 slices. Put each slice in a muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until meat is browned and tops of rolls are browned.

What is good about this recipe is, I almost always have all the things I need to pull it together. As long as I have the ground beef, I can make it. And it makes 12 rolls, enough to feed our family of four and have leftovers for lunch. It's not gourmet, but it's good and filling, and economical. I know not the healthiest, though, with the grease from the meat cooking right in, but a better ground beef would have less fat. My sister says ground turkey just wasn't right with this one!

This second picture may look familiar, but I only took it this week. Our trees in the back yard bloomed in July, but here they are blooming again. I don't remember them doing this before. They had already started loosing leaves, I guess because it was so dry. But a little unexpected happiness for me when I look out the window.

Two other notes concerning Memphis, TN. You might have seen the news about the historic church in downtown Memphis burning. I don't have any connections to that church, but I was intested, being my city of origin.

The other thing is, my Mom's brother is in the hospital there in downtown Memphis. Back in 1980, my Mom gave one of her kidneys to her brother, so he has one, and she has only one, too. But something undetermined is happening to my uncle, and he's sitting there not being able to eat (because they may do surgery), and he's been up all hours taking tests of all kinds. I hope nothing is wrong with his only kidney, but he does have organ donation specialists watching over him. So if you feel compelled, please say a prayer for my Uncle John.

I am going to a Ladies' Day at a church in Midway tomorrow. I hope it'll be fun. I guess I can blog about that later, too! The title of the speaker's talk is "Chocolate Cake or Celery." Hmm . . . I know what choice I would make.
