Angie Gets Organized

This is why I'm trying to get organized...for my family. I am a strong believer in family meal time, but I know that without a little planning, it will be hard to keep us all together. It will also be easier to spend money foolishly on prepared foods or fast food. I love trying out new recipes, so this is my site to pass on recipes, while also organizing them into a meal plan. I hope it helps you to keep your family together. I would love to hear what others are having for dinner, or see a new recipe or two! Feel free to leave me some feedback in the comments section...at least then I would know someone is reading this!

It's not gourmet...just good food!






April Recipes

Potato, Ham, and Broccoli Casserole  (8-10 serv)

3/4 lb ham, cubed
handful of diced onions
1 16 oz container sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup
5 oz package shredded swiss cheese ( I think it would be equally good with cheddar)
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. dried dill
