Sloppy Joe Pizza -- so easy, I can make it.

You'll need a 12" pizza shell (from HEB), 1 lb. ground beef, 1 can of tomato soup, and shredded cheese.

-Preheat oven to 450 degrees
-Cook the ground beef. Drain the grease.
-Pour tomato soup in with beef and stir it all together.
-Dump mixture onto pizza shell. Spread to within 1/2" of edge.
-Sprinkle as much shredded cheese on top as you'd like.
-Cook for 12 minutes or so.

Enjoy! It's actually really, really good.

1 chicken cut up
6 potatoes, peeled and cut into large wedges
2 lemons
1.5 cups olive oil
1 C water
6 minced garlic cloves

Put chicken in large roasting pan. Arrange potatoes around the chicken Squeeze the juice of 2 lemons over everything. Pour the olive oil slowly, coating everthing. Pour the water into 1 corner of the pan. Sprinke with oregano. Bake at 350 for 2 hours. Chicken will be very tender, potatoes will be cooked and everything will be really lemony and garlicky. Tastes just like the Greek chicken in restaurants. All of the ingredients are cheap too. Can be baked ahead of time and reheated. Tastes even better the 2nd day. Good dish to make on a Sunday to eat on Sunday or to put away and reheat for Monday!

Fry ground beef and drain. Cut off tops of green peppers (bell peppers) and cut the pepper in half lengthwise. Make 2 cups of instant white rice. Add rice into meat. Dice 2 tomatoes OR add a can of drained diced tomatoes to meat mixture. Add seasonings to taste; pepper, salt, tabasco, oregano, worchestire, garlic...whatever your famiy likes.

Stuff the pepper halves with the meat mixture. Sprinkle a shredded cheese on each one. Could be mozzarella, cheddar, romano...whatever. Pour a can of stewed tomatoes over everything and bake 1 hour at 350. These can be assembled ahead of time and baked at a later date as well.

This is GREAT now that grilling time is around the corner...it is an Argentinean Chimichurri sauce. You can use it on any meat, as a maranaide, or even as abread dipping sauce....if you make it, you will LOVE it!

Chimichurri Sauce
6-8 cloves garlic, minced ( I use extra, we LOVE garlic!)
2 tightly packed cups parsley (preferably Italian)
1/2 cup tightly packed cilantro
3 teaspoons best quality dried oregano
2 teaspoons best quality dried thyme
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon whole black pepercorns
1/2-1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
3/4 cup oregano-chile-garlick vinegar, or Mediterranean vinegar, or red wine vinegar plus 1 tablespoon water
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tespoon salt

1) In a food processor or blender, grind the garlic and the herbs.
2) Grind the bay and the peppercorns in a spice grinder, and add to the herb mixture with the crushed red pepper and vinegar.
3) Add the olive oil and gently mix to blend; DO NOT OVERPROCESS. Sauce should be slightly thickened.
4) Let stand severl hours or refrigerate and serve at room temperature.
5) Drizzle over grilled or roasted meats, fish, or chicken. Also good on tomatoes or sandwiches.

Yeld 2 cups.

This one I found courtesy of eating at Zinc's last night downtown for a friends birthday and found the recipe for it on Boudros -their sister cafe's website.

Boudro's Famous Guacamole
Juice of 1/4 of an orange
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1 avocado seeded and scooped out of skin
2 Tbs roasted and charred Roma tomatoes diced
1 ea Serrano pepper roasted seeded and diced
1 Tbs medium dice red onions
1 tsp chopped cilantro
coarse ground salt to taste (sea salt is better)

Squeeze juices into bowl. Add avocado and coarsely chop. Add onions, roasted tomato, serrano and cilantro fold into avocado mixture. Add salt (more is better). Result should be crudely chopped not mashed. That’s it.

this is my favorite dish from a Turkish restaurant back home near DC. I haven't made it at home yet though.

Kazan Yogurtlu Kebap

Serving for 4 people

1 1/2 lb. waste free beef tenderloin, leg of lamb, or chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
2 large ripe peeled tomatoes diced
3 oz. butter or margarine
1/2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. chopped fresh dill
1 pt. plain yogurt
1 tsp. garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 small pita bread loaves cut into bite size chunks

Heat skillet with half of the butter and lightly toss pita bread chunks until they are crisp. Keep warm. Prepare yogurt sauce by stirring in garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Heat remaining butter in skillet. Add meat and sautee until well browned. Add diced tomatoes, oregano, and chopped fresh dill and continue to sautee until tomatoes are well cooked.

Divide pita bread onto four plates and cover with yogurt sauce. Spoon meat mixture over yogurt sauce and place plates in 350 oven for one minute to heat throughout.

Here's an easy one. The ingrediants are so simple that you can't imagine how good it is. Most people that eat it ask for the recipe.

Mushroom Rice
Spray Pam in 9x13 dish and dump in the following:
1 stick butter
1 can French Onion Soup
1 can Beef Broth
1 can of rice (use the soup can to measure the rice)
1 can/jar of mushrooms
Bake 350 for an hour.

I've cooked it on top of the stove also, appx 30 minutes. I've also made it with 1/2 stick butter.
