I've made these twice now and no leftovers!! It's saying something when the kids eat all the meat.

Smothered Steaks

1-2 lbs. ground steaks (cube steak or other)
2 T. butter
1 small onion, chopped in big pieces
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can stewed diced tomatoes
Half bottle chili sauce
1/2 can water

Grill or brown steaks on both sides until about half-cooked. In separate large skillet or dutch oven, brown onions in butter until done. Add remaining ingredients and stir to mix. Place steaks into mixture and simmer over medium-low heat for at least 1 hour or until meat is very tender.

Variations: Add a can or big handful of fresh mushrooms, add chopped green or red peppers to the onions when browning, use beer or red wine instead of water...lots of variations, all good!

Subject: Uses for fruit, or ways to store?
Security: Public
So, we got a fruit&veggie AND a fresh fruit box for december, and haven't used or eaten as much of it as we meant to, being as there are only two of us. What are some ways to go through a lot of fruit and veggies really fast, or some good ways to store it longer term? We have a deep freezer with space, but I don't know how to freeze fruit so that it's something you WANT to eat when it is thawed.

Subject: Beer-Cheddar Triangles
Security: Public
I can't take credit for this recipe, it comes from my tried-and-true red check Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, which I've had for more than 20 years. These are great with stews and soups. We're having beef stew made with the meat cooked off the St. Louis Style Ribs. I cooked those babies on high in the crockpot for about 10 hours, and the broth was amazing.

Beer-Cheddar Triangles

2 c. bisquick or any other biscuit mix (we use Jiffy)
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. beer

Mix together biscuit mix and cheddar cheese in bowl. Make a well in the center and add the beer all at once. Stir together until just mixed, then turn out onto floured surface and knead about five times. Form a 6" circle with the dough, and cut into 10 slices. Place on baking sheet and back for 8-10 minutes at 450 degrees. Serve as they are or slather with butter as they come out of the oven.

Subject: Ribs? Pork ribs? How do I cook these?
Security: Public
This weekend we'll pick up the April Angelfood box, along with the "grill box" supplement we ordered. That will give us 6 pounds of ribs altogether -- 2 lb St Louis style, 2 lb meaty baby back, and 2 lb thick cut country style.

I've tried making BBQ ribs before and always been disappointed. So I think I'll just use these in the crockpot with different kinds of beans. But is there something else I can do with ribs that will be delicious?

Subject: April Boxes

I'm looking at the April menu and see several things we will be putting to good use!!

The last time we got the fajita strips, we didn't make fajitas, I instead cut them up and used them in place of ground beef in hamburger helper. It was wonderful. The ribs will get turned into stew, I imagine, we are not big rib eaters.

I would like less "pasta sauce" and "lasagna dinner" type things, as I have one person in the house who can't eat that stuff. So it tends to sit for months before we have an opportunity to eat it.

We've used more of our box so far this month than usual, so that means the freezer is getting bare. I'm trying to cook up everything so I have room for the new stuff, since we get two boxes every month. I still have chicken leg quarters in the freezer, I think that will go in the crock pot for today.
