I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

We handed out 750 treats on Halloween, that’s as many as we have the stamina for. Besides, that it was really cold! Halloween has become a family affair at our house. Last night our daughter Mary called and said she had found us a deal on the hot chocolate packets we hand out, so we already have our treats for next year. Last year our younger son John and his family came down for Halloween and this year our oldest son Jason came. Halloween on Woodland Avenue is much different now then it was when they used to go trick or treating. I think they have to come and see for themselves what its like! Of course we always love it when our family visits!
The recipe I am sharing with you today was given to me by Sharon Hanson. It’s a change from barbecues. I have used this recipe as a topping for baked potatoes and even over noodles, but it was originally meant for a sandwich. A good one to make ahead and keep warm in a crock pot.
Hamburger Stroganoff Buns
1 1/2 lb. hamburger
1 small onion, chopped fine
1-2 cloves minced garlic
Brown the above ingredients until hamburger is no longer pink. Drain, add 1 tsp. salt, 2 Tblsp. flour, 4 oz. can drained mushrooms, then add 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 cup sour cream and 1 Tblsp. chopped parsley. Heat until heated through and serve on buns.
Have a great week!
