Kid-Friendly Meal - Mac and Cheeseburger

Dish it out!
Serve it up!
Line em up!
Suppers ready, 
come and get it!

I'm not gonna lie to another mama.
This is not a healthy, kid-friendly meal all
wrapped up with an organic, gluten free bow.
It is a survival meal.
One of those meals that requires no
fancy ingredients and no brainpower.
It is a kiddie crowd pleaser and it tastes 
like a cheeseburger!
Yep, I said a cheeseburger!
You've got your protein and carbs.
Serve it with a big old sip cup of milk
and you are good to go!
Add a side of fruit in a cup and you are golden!

How do you like these special bowls?
I found these beauties while Goodwill hunting and 
I snatched them up for 49 cents a piece.
My Granny had these same bowls!
They literally make everything taste better.

And yes I am a hoarder. I am not proud of it but
it does make me really giddy to pull out 
these old toddler utensils!
Oh the days are long gone where these tools
were washed multiple times a day but
I get to dust them off when B and Finn come to play!
I am still a grandma wannabe but that's ok for now.

Here is the easy recipe!

Mac and Cheeseburger

1 box of Annie's macaroni and cheese
1 pound of Laura's Lean Beef
1/2 cup of chopped onion (use white if you need to hide it)
1 tsp of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of ketchup
1/4 cup of yellow mustard

Make the macaroni and cheese according to the directions on the box.
Cook the hamburger with the onions and garlic powder until it is good and browned. Drain any fat from the pan. Add salt, pepper, ketchup and mustard and let it simmer on low for about 5 minutes.
Add the prepared macaroni and cheese to the hamburger and mix well. That's it! Taste it and see if you need a little more ketchup and or mustard. I sometimes add a little more for a bigger kick but I like my cheeseburgers dripping in sauce so that is just me being messy. 
Serve it up and call in the troops! Set a bowl of sliced dill pickles on the table and double dare the
children to add it to their bowl! Easy, fast and not super healthy but good for a mama's brain after a long summer day! Enjoy!

This is definitely a "go-to" meal in our house! No shame in that!
I have never added the mustard. May have to give that a go!
p.s. Love the bowls!
