Saucy Hamburger Crumble

We had monsoon rains and thunderstorms here this afternoon and evening, so the chef didn’t venture outside to grill dinner. Instead we enjoyed leftover steak in fresh buns, and with tossed salad. No picture, since I was afraid to hold any metal objects with all the lightning flashing in the sky.

In today’s Toronto Star there was an article about Canadian cookbooks, which I found interesting. My first cookbook, the Betty Crocker’s Cookbook for Boys and Girls, wasn’t Canadian  — I bought it on a trip to Massena, NY, when I was about 10 years old.

I don’t remember why I wanted it, but it’s been well used over the years, so I certainly got my money’s worth. It still has the $1.00 sticker on the front cover.

It was one of the few cookbooks that I had when I got married, and it taught me how to make basic things like scrambled eggs, french toast, and scalloped potatoes.

The recipes are simple, and easy to follow, and I still use the cook book occasionally. It even has a recipe for slop, but they call it “Saucy Hamburger Crumble.” I guess it’s a little fancier than ours.
