Vegetarian Philly Cheese Sub Recipe

A delicious vegetarian Philly cheese sub with all the texture and flavor of a 'regular' Philly cheesesteak sandwich. #recipes www.heartofmichelle.com

I'm not big on sandwiches. I never have been. I do, however, enjoy the occasional sandwich, one  of which is the Philly cheesesteak. 

To accommodate Alexis' vegetarianism, I try to make as many vegetarian meals as possible while staying within our grocery budget. When I can, I try to convert 'regular' meals to vegetarian meals.

That's what I've done with the Philly cheesesteak sandwich. 

Grandma's Crockpot Ground Beef Stew

Also known as hobo stew, mulligan stew and beggar's stew, this delicious, slightly recipe is great for fall and winter days.

You may know this dish by a variety of names: Hobo Stew, Beggar Stew or Mulligan stew are of few.

My grandma, who raised me, used to make this on Sundays. I always enjoyed entering the warm house from the brisk fall or winter air, to be welcomed by the smell of this stew. 


Ahhhh... memories.

I like making this crockpot meal because it's fast, easy and affordable. In today's recipe I didn't include potatoes, but I usually do and you certainly can.



Perfect Hearty Chili Recipe

This hearty chili recipe offers just the right balance of sweet and spicy.

I love chili. I don't often make it, but when I do, it's an event! The following is a very hearty chili recipe. The tomatoes and sweet peppers offer a sweetness which is readily followed by a spicy hotness. 

If you like spicy foods, eat it alone. If you need to tone down the amount of spice, eat it with saltines or sweet corn bread. Or throw a dollop of sour cream into the chili. It is easily balanced. That how we do it. The youngest children can tame the "hot" while the adults the spiciness. 


Perfect!
