A hearty dinner for the cold

Tonight I prepared one of my favorite cold weather meals: Slum

My grandmother claims to have invented it out of necessity. Seems she was low on grocery money, so she made this by combining what she had on hand. Her she is.

One of those giant cans (can't remember the size) of Tomato juice
one pound of ground beef
two cans of Ranch style beans
two cans of Spanish rice
salt, pepper, garlic powder

Brown the seasoned hamburger meat in a large pot; drain off grease. Combine rice, tomato juice, and beans with the meat, then simmer for 15 minutes. Eat it with saltines.

This meal will defiantly stick to your ribs. It is very similar to chili, but I like it a little better. Well enjoy the food and the cold weather.
