Where's the beef chicken?
So it's Tuesday. For weeks Tuesday night here has meant KFC Tuesdays. KFC offered a 2 pc. meal for $1.99 on Tuesday nights. Sometimes we have two people home for dinner, sometimes up to six. We knew that we could feed everyone for $1.99 each. That's a bargain! Plus, no cooking!
I knew it was bound to end. Last Tuesday when hubby went to pick up the five orders, he found the offer had been replaced. Still a good deal, but not good enough to make it a weekly event.
This morning I put together a casserole they can pop into the oven while I'm at work tonight. I used an old standby recipe given to me by my sweet friend Kathy when we were both newlyweds. This is a recipe I have used many times throughout the years when day visits unexpectedly turned into dinner company. It's not a recipe one would serve at a dinner party, but it's one in which I always have the ingredients on hand and can produce a meal within 40 minutes.
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 can pork & beans, drained
1/2 cup catsup
fresh bread crumbs
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Brown beef with chopped onion. Drain. Add pork & beans and catsup. Top with bread crumbs and cheese. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.

I serve this with rice (Success easy boil in the bag kind, quick ya know) and garlic bread made from whatever buns or sliced bread we have in the pantry. This is a starchy meal for sure, but so very easy to throw together quickly.
