Ham and Noodle Casserole
I liked this recipe. It took me a little longer to prepare because I had to shred my own Swiss cheese. I also sauteed onions first along with chopped garlic in olive oil, it does taste like one yellow onion was a bit much. I used cream of chicken soup, one can of evaporated milk and half a can of water...I didn't have sour cream on hand and the milk kept it moist. I decided to let the casserole bake for only about 35 mins and I broiled it for about 5 more. Broiling helped brown and melt the cheese on top. It turned ot well but I like the suggestion of adding peas or some other green veggie as an extra something :)

Braised Flank Steak with Lemon and Garlic
I changed the recipe a little bit since I had about a 2lb piece of flank steak. I used the same amount of flour and garlic powder that were suggested for the beef coating, it actually seemed to be a little too much and had plenty of flour leftover to toss. I also sped up the cooking time a bit to about one hour, since I usually don't like to spend more time than that on dinner. I browned both sides of the meat like it said and poured one can of chicken broth, 3 tsp of lemon juice, 2 tsp of minced garlic, sea salt and lots of pepper. I brought the juice to a boil on medium/high heat and covered the pan. I left the meat and steam cook on medium heat for about half hr on one side and then turned meat over for another half hr since broth did not engulf entire meat. After meat cooked, I took it out onto a cutting board to cut into thin slices. I added cornstarch to the juices to thicken and then I added the sliced meat back into the juice/gravy. I boiled a few potatoes and propped open some canned peas as sides. I personally mashed my potatoes with a fork while they were still hot and added the gravy all over them and the was delicious!
