My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Sunday Steak In Foil

This is another great meal that can be cooking while you are feeding your soul at church. This only takes about and hour or hour and a half to cook. You can always use your delayed bake option on your oven, like I do, because I might want to be standing around after church visiting (gossip). When you live in the country, church is where you find out all the happenings in the neighborhood for the pass week. It's better than the nightly national news.

Sunday Steak In Foil
4 servings
print recipe

1 pound round steak, cut at least 1-inch thick
4 medium carrots, quartered
3 or 4 medium red potatoes, quartered
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (or more) water
1 envelope onion soup mix
4 stalks celery, cut in sticks
2 or 3 tablespoons butter
Parsley flakes

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Tear off a 2 1/2 foot length of heavy duty foil: place meat in center. Sprinkle with soup mix. Cover with vegetables. Dot vegetables with butter and sprinkle with parsley flakes and salt. Fold foil over and seal securely to hold juices in. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

This is good stuff!
