Hamburger Buddy

Here's dinner from the other night.  It was ok.....I forgot to take a picture for ya.  Sorry!!!!

3 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled

2 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces

10 ounces white mushrooms, large ones cut in half

1 large onion, cut into 2-inch pieces

1 pound 90%-lean ground beef

2 teaspoons dried thyme

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 cups water

1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium beef broth, divided

8 ounces whole-wheat elbow noodles (2 cups)

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or chives for garnish

Fit a food processor with the steel blade attachment. With the motor running, drop garlic through the feed tube and process until minced, then add carrots and mushrooms and process until finely chopped. Turn it off, add onion, and pulse until roughly chopped.

Cook beef in a large straight-sided skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the chopped vegetables, thyme, salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables start to soften and the mushrooms release their juices, 5 to 7 minutes.

Stir in water, 1 1/2 cups broth, noodles and Worcestershire sauce; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Whisk flour with the remaining 1/4 cup broth in a small bowl until smooth; stir into the hamburger mixture. Stir in the sour cream. Simmer, stirring often, until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with parsley (or chives), if desired.

Next time I make it I'm gonna leave the mushrooms whole & at the end add a can of cream of mushroom soup with the sour cream. 
Hope you enjoy!!!!!
Hoss had a GREAT day yesterday.  He got to go errand running with mommy yesterday morning.  We went to The Biltmore House and he got to play there for like an hour & half.  Then we went & did mommy's normal Saturday running around.  As you can tell he was pretty tuckered out!!!!!
