Hamburgers Diane

I know this may not be the most glamourous of meals, but it is truly comfort food! I've been making it so long, I can't even remember where I got the recipe. I do know that it's written down on a collection of cards that I had to do for a home ec. class my senior year of high school. So that means I've been making this one for over 20 years now! (Am I really that old?!? lol!). Anyway, this is definitely a family favorite! It's economical, too. And let me preface this by saying: I do this one from memory and I am quite *free* with the amounts of butter and Worcestershire sauce that I use. Don't be shy about embelishing the measurements! Enjoy!

Hamburgers Diane
2 Tbls. butter
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small onion, sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Melt butter in large skillet; add Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic, onion and mushrooms. Cook and stir over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix ground beef, salt and pepper. Shape in to 4 patties, each about 3/4" thick. Push mushroom/onion mixture to the side of skillet. Cook patties in same skillet over medium-high heat, turning once, until desired doneness (about 10 minutes for medium). Serve with mushroom/onion mixture over patties. Serves 4.


That looks yummy :) and I love the blue and white plate!

This sounds good! I am on a comfort food kick lately (actually I think that is mostly what I cook...comfort or *country*). I made Mrs. H's salisbury steaks last night and we all liked them, but Rick thought they should be cooked in a skillet (instead of in the oven), so I may try this next time. BTW, I thought the S. steaks were good, if you ever want to try them.
My hubby will love this so much. Thank you for sharing.

The Mister will LOVE this!

I cook the same way..usually without a recipe card...just taste and add and pinch or a sprinkle. :)

Wow...that looks soooo yummy!
I'm new to your blog.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your banner.
The cloths pins with the pictures are just darling!!
Mmm, they look and sound delicious. As dd is allergic to dairy, I'll attempt subbing olive oil for the butter.

Thanks for stopping by to see me. It's nice to meet you and I hope you'll return :-)

Have a great weekend!

Love those crayon hearts you made too!

Sounds great! The ingredients remind me of a salisbury steak recipe we make. Is that sort of the flavor profile that it has?

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 coat

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

End of the Week Wrap-Up {week 8}

Well, the first quarter of our school year is almost over!  Yea!! This has been one of those weeks where we were all a little tired, there was some sickness, and there wasn't a lot of exciting stuff on the calendar ...but we stayed the course and got a lot done.  Love that feeling of accomplishment! On our "Fun Friday" we had our devotional time, did some Life of Fred, played some American trivia, worked on stories with our Story Cubes, and then wrapped up with some leaf painting.   We had seen these cute illustrations in the current issue of Family Fun magazine and thought this would be a fun project to try--and they were!  I even did one :)   Just find some pretty autumn leaves around your yard or on a nature walk, grab some tempera paints and fine-tipped brushes, and paint some fun woodland creatures on your leaves!   Can you see the animals on these leaves? Then we ended our day with a family movie ( Soul Surfer ), some pizz
