We made this 2 nights ago for dinner.  It is super easy, super yummy, and a cheap-o GF meal.

Stir together:
1 package hot dogs – sliced
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 16 ounce container Pacific Natural Foods tomato soup (if you don’t have this, just add more tomato sauce and water)
12 ounce bag GF noodles, cooked, drained
Mustard to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
For topping, stir together:
1/2 cup GF bread crumbs
3 T Butter
Put noodle/hot dog mixture in casserole dish.  Spread bread crumbs and melted butter over top.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes covered, then 10 minutes uncovered.  Kids love this!

For dinner tonight, we had the easiest ever crockpot stew.  This is a staple in our household, especially when I know it is going to be a crazy day and the last thing I am going to want to do at 4:30 is cook.

Here’s what I did:

Combine in Crockpot:
6-8 potatoes, peeled and sliced
4-6 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 pound ground beef, browned (I had already done this, so it was cooked in a container in my refrigerator)
2 cups of V8 or tomato juice, or 1 cup tomato sauce and 1 cup of water
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons rice
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours. 

You can serve this basically as a whole meal, although we add applesauce or a salad to round it out a bit.  It doesn’t look or sound like much, but it is so filling and satisfying…..great comfort food.  And of course, naturally GF, and quite economical.  I think I’ll be making this quite a bit in the next few weeks to use up my carrots from Walmart!

Tonight’s dinner (and Friday’s as well) was a Hamburger Cheese Quiche.  Everyone in my family is a huge fan of this quiche, which is why I double the recipe (we go through one in its entirety with each meal).

This is a great meal, because it just requires a vegetable, salad, or fruit to make it a complete meal.  And it is SO easy to whip up.

Mix together:  
1 pound ground beef, browned
1 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip (I used Hellman’s – it’s labeled GF; although most mayo is GF, I like to see the label)
4 eggs
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Salt and pepper, adjusted to your taste
1 teaspoon onion powder (you can also saute onion with the meat and eliminate this, but my family is not real fond of onions)
3-4 cups of cheese, depending on how much you like cheese (I combine different kinds – Swiss, Cheddar, Colby, Mozzarella, really whatever you have on hand – I used 3 different kinds this time around)

Stir all together.


Pour into 2 sprayed pans.

Bake at 350 for about 40-45 minutes.  Should be golden brown on the top.  Here’s our finished product.  Just like that, 2 nights of dinner prepared!
