Tasty Tuesdays: Steak & Potato Scallop Casserole

Welcome back to Tasty Tuesdays!

Today I'm revisiting a family favorite: the steak and potato scallop casserole.  It's one of Vince's favorites and since last week's menu was especially for him--since he'd been to Egypt the week before and missed American food a lot--this was definitely on the menu.  

This is a recipe that my mom made when I was growing up.  It's also one of my dad's favorites.  It's real man food!  However, I also love it and so do the kiddos.  It does have onions in it, but I slice those fairly thick so that they're easy to remove from the spoonfuls that I put on my children's plates.  

Steak & Potato Scallop

2 lbs. beef round steak, 1" thick
3 Tbls. oil
3 small onions, thickly sliced
1 cup (or so) of sliced mushrooms, optional
3 Tbls. flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Dash of thyme
Dash of garlic salt
2 cups water
3 medium potatoes, pared & thinly sliced
Smoked paprika
Heat oven to 350F. Cut meat into 1" cubes; coat them with flour. Heat oil in skillet; brown meat.
Add onion; cook and stir until onion is tender. Finally, add the mushrooms, cooking until softened and heated through. Pour into ungreased 2-qt. casserole. Combine the 3 tbsp. flour, salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic salt; sprinkle over the meat. Pour water over mixture.
Cover with foil and bake 60 minutes or until meat is tender. Increase oven to 450F. Arrange
potatoes on meat; sprinkle with salt and paprika. Bake uncovered about 30 minutes longer or
until potatoes are tender. Makes 4-6 servings.

The hair looks good; I have realized that I have to go with ash blonde to get rid of the red, if I don't want to have orange hair. =) lol!

Hi Lora! This is Lisa Busbee....
I just wanted to let you know that you motivated me to cook something new this week. I have been wanting to make broccoli cornbread since I had it at Outpost 72 a few months ago, but just never have. When I saw it listed on your menu plan with chili, I decided to make it this week! I did make it, with a few modifications (I used Cheddar and added a little milk b/c it was too dry w/out the cottage cheese). I thought it was wonderful! I really am not a fan of broccoli, but in this cornbread it was just great. Unfortunately, I couldn't get anyone else to try it since it did have "green stuff" in it. Oh well, more for me :)
My question is, does the cottage cheese make the bread slightly sweet? The cornbread I had at Outpost was sweet, but I couldn't figure out why. If so, I'm gonna try the original recipe next time.

I really hate that you guys are moving away. I completely understand, but just hate what has caused the whole thing. I am so glad that I was able to get to know all of you. At least we can still have some contact through the blog. I really enjoy reading your blog and am so thankful to you for introducing me to this whole new world! I am considering starting a blog, but don't know where to begin and haven't figured out a name yet. I'll let you know if I do!

YUM! This looks amazing! I'm going to have to try it. My hubby would LOVE it (pretty sure my kids would, too!)

Love the new look of the blog, too!
Thanks, Nancy!

If you try the casserole, you'll have to let me know how your family likes it:)

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
