Amish Yumasetta

A wonderful, filling comfort food!


2 lbs. ground beef
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 large yellow onion (I didn't have an onion so replaced this with 1/4 cup minced onion)
1 can tomato soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz shredded cheddar or shredded Velveeta
12 oz package wide egg noodles


Brown the ground beef and onion.  Stir in the brown sugar.  Add the can of tomato soup and keep the mixture on warm.

Cook the egg noodles and drain well.  Immediately mix in the cream of chicken soup.

In a casserole dish or 13x9 pan, layer the noodles and hamburger mixture.  If using a 13x9, you will only have two layers of each, more in a casserole dish.  Top with cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

A New Way to Give

There is a new method of donating to your favorite charity that won't personally cost you a dime!  It does not get much more frugal than that!

Amazon has rolled out a program named "Amazon Smile".  When you enter Amazon through to shop, 0.5% of your eligible purchases will be donated to the charity of your choice.  

Amazon Smile is the same Amazon you usually shop with all the same items, prices, and Prime.  The only difference is now a half of one percent of your shopping will support your favorite charity.

When I first signed up for Amazon Smile, the charities available were Water, Doctors without Borders, and the World Wildlife Fund.  However, there is a write-in box where you can choose another charity if you wish.  My shopping donation will be supporting the work of the WWF.

Head on over to Amazon and sign up for Amazon Smile.  You can do the same shopping you do now and do good at the same time!
