What's for Sunday Dinner???

....Hobo Meals....
I'm sure most of you have heard of Hobo Meals before. The first time I had it was the summer before ninth grade I believe. My best friend Colette had come to spend the summer with her sister and was staying with us for part of the time. As a 'Thank You' she cooked this dinner for my family one night. I have made this for Jay numerous times through the years and with a few alterations it has become one of his faves! 

Hobo Meals
1 carrot
1 potato
1 hamburger patty
dash of salt

Cut carrot and potato to any size preferred. Place them on some foil and then add the hamburger patty sprinkled with dash of salt. Add a tablespoon of water and fold up ends of foil to make a enclosed packet. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. 

Simple and delicious. Now how do I make it? Well I do all of the above but I also add broccoli (&cauliflower but I didn't have it this time). I sprinkle it with garlic powder and pepper. When its all finished cooking I smoother it in some brown gravy! Jay absolutely loves it. I have a love/like/sometimes hate relationship with it. ha ha. I guess its from him always wanting it and it being the only thing I knew how to cook back when but I haven't made it in awhile so I'm really looking forward to it tonight. Its in the oven as I speak type.
