Quick and Dirty recipes

What are the quick standbys you rely on to get a meal on the table? Our family's easy favorite is called "Gayla's Soup," named after the friend who gave it to me, so I'll rename it for your guys:

Cyndi's Soup

1 lb ground beef, browned

2 cans minestrone (the larger ready-to-serve, not condensed, kinds such as Progresso or Campbells)

1 can Ranch Style beans (it's a brand, in case you've never heard of such a thing....I'd never heard of them until I moved to Osage County as a young bride)

1 can Rotel tomatoes (my kids like the mild version)

1 can water

Combine and cook all afternoon or all day in crock pot, or you can cook in a dutch oven for 2-3 hours at 325 degrees.

Serve with cornbread and a salad - voila, it's dinner! (or skip the salad - heck, there are a few vegetables in the soup and Rotel.) For larger families, you might need to double it. With my high school son, this barely feeds the six of us.

Post your family favorites in the comments section!
