Tin Foil Dinner

1 pound of Lean Ground Beef
2 large Potatoes (peeled and sliced thin)
1 onion (sliced)
1 large Zucchinni
1 cup of sliced carrot
McCormick Steak Seasoning
Garlic Salt
Salt and Pepper
Season the meat well with all of the seasonings.  Separate the meat into 4th's. (so about a 1/4 pound of meat will go into each foil) Next, peel and slice the potato into thin slices.  Slice the onion into thin strips too. Wash the zucchini and slice into 1/4" thick pieces. 

Take 2 pieces of foil for each dinner and lay one on top of the other creating a + symbol.  Place a 1/4 lb. of meat onto all 4 foils.  Measure out the vegetables so each dinner gets equal amounts.  Now just layer the vegetables on top of the meat then season the veggies well with salt, pepper, garlic salt, and steak seasoning.  Wrap the foil up tight and place them onto a baking sheet.

Bake @*350 for 1 hour to an hour and 15 minutes.

*NOTE: One way to add flavor to the dish is to take the veggies, lightly drizzle them with oil, and place them in a bag, along with a packet of the dry Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning and give it a good shake.

Kulua Pork

5-6  pounds Pork Roast
1 Tablespoon Garlic Power
1/4 c. Soy Sauce
1/4 c. Worcestershire Sauce
(All of these measurements are approximate, just season to taste)

 Rub pork generously with salt, pour on liquids in the crock pot. Place pork roast in crock pot, cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until it will easily shred into juices (do not drain). (I usually strain the broth to get rid of some of the fat.)

For Pulled Pork Sandwiches:
Layer on a hamburger bun with BBQ sauce and coleslaw.

For Kalua Pork:Serve with soy sauce, coconut rice, and coleslaw.

Easy Peach Cobbler

  • Two 16-oz cans of peaches in heavy syrup (Good luck in finding 16-oz cans. Seems the price of peaches stayed the same but the cans have decreased in size to 15 oz.)
  • One box classic yellow cake mix (I like the Pillsbury because it has "one cup of pudding" in the mix, seeming to make it yummier.)
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • One teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2.  Grease pan a 9x13 inch pan pour peaches and syrup in
  3. Melt butter and mix with cake mix crumble over peaches. (give a little push down in spots)
  4. Scatter cinnamon evenly over the top
  5. Bake about 40 minutes and let cool about 10 minutes before serving.
  6. Serves with vanilla ice cream.
