Tinfoil Chef: "Hamburger Helper BBQ SmackDown"
I was looking forward all week to BarBQ'ing outdoors again this weekend but instead we were stuck inside yesterday. Thankfully, for we've been praying for a nice day long soaking rain to help our drought conditions. Unfortunately, there went my plans for cooking supper outdoors.

Not liking to drive in the pouring rain, nor wanting to subject anyone else to driving out in it - grocery shopping and pizza delivery were out of the question. I had to instead make due with what was on hand, and trust me... Mother Hubbard's cupboards were practically bare.

Interestingly, out of a few resources and a bit of creativity and new favorite recipe can be discovered. I had some left over BBQ ribs and chicken from Memorial Day. A box of Hamburger Helper Cheeseburger Macaroni. Some spices, condiments and a box of Jiffy Mix Cornbread. The end result was the perfect rainy day BBQ supper.

- 1-2lbs of leftover BBQ meats sliced into bite sized pieces and off the bone.
- 1 box Hamburger Helper Cheeseburger Macaroni
- 1 cup of hot water
- 1/4 cup of BBQ Sauce
- 2 Cups of Milk
- 1 TB of Liquid Smoke
- 1 Cup of Shredded Monty Jack Cheese

Combine all of these ingredients in a 10-inch skillet. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes until Pasta is tender. Remove from heat, sprinkle on 1 cup of the cheese and let stand for 5 minutes.

Break out a pan of Jiffy Cornbread, some forks and plates and get ready to hear your taste buds sing.

    I always put Liquid Smoke in my mac-cheese, it's great. only trick is to not use too much (which is easy to do). with browned hamburger. yup.
