Yum Yum Hot Dish

*blows dust from keyboard*

Here’s a recipe that has 1962 Midwest all over it, from the can of mushroom soup to the chow mien noodles.

1 lb ground beef
1 green pepper
1 small bunch celery
2 onions, medium
butter for browning the above
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup water
1 cup chow mien noodles
1 cup mushroom soup

To do:
Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Chop the pepper, celery, and onions. Brown the chopped veggies and the ground beef in butter. Add salt and water to the mixture and simmer for five minutes. Add noodles and soup to the mixture and bake 30–45 minutes. Sprinkle with more noodles when done.

I have no memory of Mom ever making this. Given that I hate cooked green pepper, that’s ok. The rest of it sounds ok, though.
