The Monday Recipe Blog

It's going to be a great summer!  Here is a recipe to start your week....

This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

We love one-pot meals in this fast-paced world of today, with our crockpots and microwaves, but one-pot meals existed in the 1960's as well.  Here is an example....

Lois Elaine's One Pot Meal:

1 pound ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 chopped green pepper
3 stlks chopped celery
6 or 8 potatoes, sliced
1 #2 size can of tomatoes

Do not pre-cook the ground beef.  Combine ingredients with a little salt and pepper and 1 c. water in a small roaster or baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until the potatoes are done.


  1. What's a great your Monday recipe.

  2. Yes now a days is very summer so, your recipe is the best option for summer.
