Poor Man's Steak

1 lb. uncooked lean ground beef
1 c. saltine crackers crumbled
1 c. milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can condensed mushroom soup
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix hamburger, crackers, salt, pepper, and milk; shape into a roll. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate overnight. When ready to cook, heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Slice the roll of hamburger mixture about 1/2" thick; brown the slices in the skillet. Drain steaks briefly on a paper towel, then place in a 9x13" baking dish. Spoon condensed mushroom soup (undiluted) over "steaks", and bake covered at 250° for 1-1/4 hours. Serve hot.

This recipe is adapted from the Yoder Mennonite Cookbook (Yoder, Kansas).

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
