Soft Tacos


Cooked Ground beef

Add salsa to the cooked ground beef and stir thoroughly, open up your pita pocket and put in about a couple of tablespoons of the ground beef mixture, top with your choice of lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar, and sour cream. These taco's can even be enjoyed by toddlers.

Letter Soup


Put carcass in a large pot and cover with water, put on stove and bring to a boil. Remove bones from water. When cool, take off meat from carcass and add to soup. Add rest of ingredients to the boiling water (be creative, using different vegetables as they come in season) and simmer for about an hour. Children enjoy picking out the letters and identifying them or, the older ones, spelling words. A delicious and fun way for children to get their daily intake of vegetables!

Best Ever Baked Potatoes


Wash and peel (wash only if new) potatoes. Slice in 1" thick slices and put on large piece of tin foil. Top with rest of ingredients ending with a dab of butter on the top. Seal tin foil completely and place in 350 degree oven for 1 hour or on the BBQ for 45 minutes.

Homemade Bread


Soften yeast in water. Heat milk, sugar, shortening, and salt until sugar dissolves. Cool to lukewarm. Stir in 2 cups of flour. Add the softened yeast and stir until smooth. Stir in the rest of the flour. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth (about 10 minutes). Shape into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Turn once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 1 hour). Punch down. Divide into 2 balls and let sit for 15 minutes covered in bowl. Place in 2 loaf pans shaping dough into a loaf. Let rise. Bake in 375 degree oven about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.



Let dough rise in bowl. Divide into small balls. Let rise for 15 more minutes. Roll out the ball on a floured surface. Put sauce in the center being careful not to get it on the edges. Top with your favourite pizza toppings and then fold in half - pinch to seal. Bake at 375 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes. Pierce with a fork to allow steam to escape. We have renamed this recipe Panza"Ruth"ie's because it has become such a favourite!

Tuna Casserole


Cook pasta,rinse and drain, then set aside. Place tuna, can of mushroom soup, vegetables (if using) into a casserole dish or large bowl. Mix together. Pour in pasta and stir. Serve immediately. If not using vegetables in the dish, serve as a side dish - my group likes peas or broccoli with this meal the best.

Crockpot Beef with Noodles


Cut roast into chunks and brown in frying pan. Place in crockpot with mushroom soup. Cook on LOW for 6 hours. Serve on cooked egg noodles with vegetables and a salad.

Crockpot Chili


Take 1/2 of the kidney beans out of the can and puree (my guys are not fussy on the beans and often pick them out... this way, they are getting the nutrition of the beans right in the chili)... this step is optional - you can add the beans whole if you wish! Add the remainder of the beans to the crockpot along with the other ingredients. Cook on HIGH until bubbly and then on LOW. Total cooking time is 2 hours.
