Dinner in a Jar

When I have to work in the evening which, unfortunately, happens often, my husband looks in the fridge and says, "So, what am I supposed to cook?" If I've had time to go shopping, I try to have a meal planned for him, so he doesn't have to go to the store after he gets home from work. Lately, I have hardly had any time to do anything useful like get groceries or sleep or even breathe, I've been working so much.

Tonight was my one night home for dinner out of the week so, since I was going to cook, I made a double batch of Beef Stroganoff. This recipe comes from my mother-in-law, and is one of my husband's favorites. After everything had simmered for a hour I put up 2 quarts and processed them for 90 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure. Now there will be a couple of meals, at least. Just add sour cream and serve over noodles. The 5-year-old eats the noodles, anyway.
