Simple Menu- Day 8/ True Test- Lori’s Shepherd Pie Goes to NLC Fellowship

Today, the recipes I used are from past posts, so I will be sharing those links.  Our church fellowship was today, and I was determined to stick with my inexpensive, convenient menu.  I figured this was the time to test some of the recipes on other people.  I have been to church fellowships forever, and I have learned to read people’s faces when they taste a dish.  I also know that in this group, we are not a group of people that hand out false compliments.  I figure if no one compliments, but it is an empty dish, that is a good sign.  But when I get compliments and a quickly emptied dish, that is even better!!

Today’s menu:
Breakfast: Yummy Easy Semi-Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
Sunday Lunch: Lori’s Quick and Easy Shepherd Pie

I am also sharing a brownie recipe with you today.  I am posting this in a separate blog, so it can be indexed.  I have been making this recipe, which I have adapted from the old Betty Crocker cookbook, since 1989.  Over the years, I have changed it a bit, to suit our taste, so the recipe isn’t exact to Betty, any longer….

Cocoa Brownies (This is a Double Batch)
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 TBSP Pure Vanilla
4 eggs
1 1/3 cup self-rising flour (or 1 1/3 cup AP flour,1/2 tsp baking pwdr, 1/2 tsp salt)
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup nuts of your choice (optional)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in flour and cocoa (and nuts, if using.) Spread in a greased 13×9 pan.

Bake until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool.
Lori’s Note: I bake these until they are done around the edge and done, but still a bit gooey in the center. That way, everybody in our family gets exactly what they like!
