Cool and Cloudy

No weather forecast, just a comment. Dog got me up early, and now he is back sleeping in his bed. Not the same for me, unfortunately. Awake is awake for me.

M. V., look for a small package in the mail (next week) containing Ranch Dressing mix. Enjoy!

Baked in Beefburgers (Memaw's)

This is a flaky tomato biscuit with meat rolled up inside and served with mushroom sauce:

3/4 pound ground beef
3/4 cup minced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
2 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup tomato sauce
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup tomato sauce
Water to make 2/3 cup

Brown beef, onions, and celery in shortening. Add salt, pepper, and 1/3 cup tomato sauce. Cook until thickened. Cool.

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, marjoram, and sage. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles corn meal. Combine tomato sauce and water. Add to flour mixture, mixing until all flour is dampened. Knead gently on floured board. Roll to 12 x 9 rectangle. Spread with cooled meat mixture. Roll as a jelly roll starting at 9 inch side. Place on greased baking sheet. Bake 375 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes. Serve hot, plain or with sauce.

Mushroom Sauce

Add 1/2 cup milk to mushroom soup. Heat to simmering. Spoon over Beefburgers.
