My boys love these. They ask for them all the time.

Preheat oven to 400
spray 2 9"x13" pans.
4lbs Hamburger
3 cans refried beans
3 cans olives
14 to 16 tortilla shells
2 large cans enchilada sauce
1 lbs grated cheese

Brown the hamburger. Add the beans to browned hamburger warm up. Slice up or crumble up olives into the hamburger mix. Pour some of the sauce in a shallow bowl. dip shells in the sauce, coat both sides of shell

Fill the shells with about 1/2 cup mix and a handful of cheese roll up and put in pan I put about 7 in a pan that is what the need is for 2 pans. once pan is full, pour sauce over enchiladas in pan to cover lightly.

Cover with foil. cook for 45 minutes or until heated all the way through. Remove foil cover with cheese as much or as little as you like. Cook for another 5 to 10 minutes or cheese is melted. then eat and enjoy.

If wanted you could add chopped green chilies or jalapenos to hamburger mix.

Please leave a comment after trying these.

Grandma Angus' Oatmeal Drop Cookies

This cookie recipe came from my great grandmother Minnie Angus. She has been gone for close to 30 years but I can still remember her wonderful cooking. These cookies are one of the things I remember the most growing up. I will more than likely be adding a lot more of her recipes.
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups shortening
1 or 2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
4 eggs
3 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups old fashioned oatmeal
nuts & chocolate chips as desired.

Combine sugar & shortening. Add salt, vanilla, cinnamon and milk mix.
Add flour, baking powder and baking soda. mix well. Add oatmeal nuts and chips.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes. ovens may very.
Eat warm with a glass of milk.
you can cut the oats down to about 31/2 cups. Some family members think that the 4 cups make them to dry. Just a personal preference.
I hope you try them and like them. Please if you do try them let me know your comments on them. Thank you.

Well here it goes. This is my first attempt of blogging. My thoughts for this blog is to share recipes, and cooking tips. I like any type of recipes simple ones to the more complex. If anyone has any to share, just leave them here on the blog. Come back often to see if there are any recipes that might help you with that special dinner.
