Right now I have a pan of Hobo Dinner on the stove to feed 5 grandkids, my daughter, my husband and me. I made enough to send some home with Mari Ann to her husband Shawn, who's feeling a little under the weather. For those of you who do not know what Hobo Dinner is, it is a one pot meal my mother came up with to feed myself, my 5 very hungry brothers and mama and daddy, we all loved Hobo night at the Byrd house. It's made up mostly of rice, hamburger and a can of tomatoes. The rest fo the ingredients can vary depending on what I have available. This time I chopped up an onion, some celery, threw in a can of corn and a couple of Bay leaves, and salt and pepper of course. Then I added a couple of cups of rice, 3 - 1/2 cups of beef broth. Simmer till the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. A glass of milk and some bread and butter makes this one of my favorite comfort meals.
