While I aspire to a more meatless meal time (sort of), I remain surrounded by a group of young men (and their pops) who really want to eat meat at mealtime.
It doesn’t mean they don’t love the veggies nestled up next to the meat—it just means that meat tends to be the main event, plain and simple.
Out of the blue, my hubs requested Salisbury steak for dinner with a mushroom gravy. This recipe is so old school and Stouffers throwback—that I was sure it’d faded into the history-of-the-homemade pile. Utilizing a recipe we printed in MSL on bringing back the TV dinner, I just added some mushroom to the gravy.
But here’s the surprise:
I posted a picture to Instagram (follow me @madhungrylsq) and naively asked the question if anyone under 40 knew of this recipe. Like I said—I assumed it to be so old-school that it hadn’t even come back yet! But—there were several comments from my twenty-something peeps saying YES—they did know and love this recipe. Of course, many credited their grandma’s for turning them onto it. Funny how what goes around comes around. Meanwhile, I think my husband hopes that we will add this to weekly rotation, which– now that he is hooked on it—can be his cooking contribution, don’t you think?
