I have been trying to decide what to do with my blog but since I am new at this I will continue with this plan for now. I have added a shopping tip section and my first post there is a list of pesticide levels of some foods. One day my 5 year old grandson grabbed an apple and started eating it and I said wait, let me wash it because it could have bug spray on it. He said "I like bug spray." That is funny now but we don't know what many years of eating pesticides, preservatives, flavor enhancers and who knows what else that is in our foods. So I think it is best to keep it simple. Here is a simple main dish that is easy and my sons loved it when they were growing up.

Onion-Beef Macaroni Casserole

preheat oven to 400 degrees 6 servings
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 envelope of onion soup mix (Hain's is a natural brand or you can use Lipton's)
1 - 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 tbsp. of flour
2 cups of water
1 cup of raw macaroni, cooked according to package directions
1/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese
In large skillet brown meat, drain off fat. Stir in onion soup mix, flour, tomato sauce and
water. Simmer covered 5 minutes. Stir in macaroni. Turn into 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 15 minutes.
