Top Two Tuesday

Today's topic:
 My Favorite "I don't feel like Cooking" Recipes

Now I know these dishes may sound less appetizing, but they definitely are tasty.  These are two of Garrett's favorites that I make.  They are both recipes I was raised on by my mama.  I love that they don't require a recipe card.  They both are cheap, quick, and easy go-to recipes, when time is of the essence.

Hamburger, Rice, and Cabbage
 You need:
1-1.5 lbs hamburger (I use turkey burger to make it healthier)
3-4 servings of rice
1/2 head of cabbage
soy sauce (we use low sodium)

1) Brown the hamburger
2) Slice cabbage into small shreds
3) Once burger is browned, add in the cabbage on top
4) Pour in about 1/3 cup water
5) Cover pan and steam cabbage over medium heat until tender
6) Stir in soy sauce to meat and cabbage mixture and serve over rice

Creamed Eggs over Toast
You need:
hard-boiled eggs
1 T butter
1 T flour
3/4 C milk
canadian bacon or ham

1) Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat
2) Stir in flour to melted butter
3) Once the mixture is blended, pour in the milk gradually
4) Continue stirring until sauce thickens
5) Add cheese, salt, and pepper to taste
6) Cut bacon/ham and eggs into slices and stir into sauce
7) Pour over toast

Jack, the cat, is not too sure about it...
as Beckett now creates a blockade, from his beloved self-feeder.  This could be a good diet plan.
