Scalloped Potatoes & Hamburg Bake

Listen, I’ll be honest with you, I am terrible at coming up with names for my recipes. I just call them as I see them. When I started this blog all I knew was that I could cook, I didn’t realize that there were so many different elements to blogging. Along with cooking I also had to learn photography & improve my semi non existing writing skills. So bare with me as I learn. I am currently reading a book by Anne Lamott called Bird By Bird. I will warn you there is some foul language in the book. I am not finished with the book yet but basically she is showing me how to break down my writing into one category at a time and quit the other voice’s in my head so I can deal with one voice at a time. In one particular part of the book she asks you to close your eyes and imagine all those voice in your head are mice. She then says to to put each mouse (voice) in a separate jar so you can sort through the voices one by one. I know that sounds confusing but it actually does help, a lot!

Ok, that’s enough about my writing skills. Lets talk about this Scalloped Potatoes & Hamburg Bake! So this recipe basically came to be out of pure laziness. My husband said he wanted a meatloaf and every time I think meatloaf I think scalloped potatoes as a side. In my mind they go together like Peanut butter and Jelly, like coffee and mornings, like me and burlap. You get it. I had everything ready to go, the potatoes laid out, hamburg thawed, oven preheated. But then I got lazy, really lazy. I thought, forget it. I wasn’t in the mood to make all that but now I was now craving scalloped potatoes and my husband still wanted something with ground beef. So I thought to myself, I know, I’ll just throw the ground beef in with the potatoes. Perfect, right? wrong. To feel good about myself as both a wife and a mother I knew I had to add a veggie. I thought about making a veggie on the side but that would mean another dirty dish and I just wasn’t having it. I found a bag of peas in the freezer tossed them in and called it a day.
