We had a busy summer. Busy and hot! We used the AC a lot this summer.
This morning we woke to cool, crisp air and it put me in the mood to cook, preferably comfort food. One of my favorite crockpot meals is Salisbury Steak. We love it. It makes a perfect hearty meal. The recipe I use came from allrecipes.com.
I like to serve it with mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles.
I also baked a lemon cake. No recipe needed. Mix up a lemon cake mix according to pk directions. Plop tablespoons of lemon pie filling (1 can) evenly onto the batter. Bake. Poke holes in the cake with a wooden spoon handle. Pour on a glaze made with 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/3 cup orange juice or lemonaide. Done!
