Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2016-2017): We will be using a variety of different curriculum this year, with Notgrass' Uncle Sam and You as our main History, Bible and Literature focus. Our oldest, EL, is in 12th grade this year, but has special learning needs due to autism. JJ is our youngest, an active boy with Tourette Syndrome. He is in the 8th grade.

Please feel free to follow along....

HOME EC: Brown Gravy & Meatballs Over Noodles

This quick and easy meal serves our family of 4 and leaves us with some leftovers for lunch the next day.

4 cups water
6 tsp. beef bouillon
1/2 cup flour
1 cup water
2 lb. bag frozen meatballs
16 oz. bag egg noodles

Boil 4 cups of water in a medium saucepan. At the same time, boil a pot of water for cooking the egg noodles.

Add 6 tsp. of beef bouillon to the 4 cups of water. I use Better Than Bouillon Beef Base.

Put 1/2 cup flour and 1 cup water into a jar with a lid. Shake vigorously until mixed. (This was my daughter's job.)

Slowly pour the flour mixture into the bouillon mixture, stirring as you pour.

After the gravy has thickened, add half a bag of frozen meatballs - about 32. I use the Fit & Active brand of Turkey meatballs from Aldi. (My son loves these. He says they taste like chicken nuggets.)

Simmer the meatballs on low until heated through - about 10-15 minutes. At the same time, boil the egg noodles.

Serve the gravy and meatballs over the noodles, along with a vegetable of choice.
