Quick Dinner After a Long Week

We left at 5 am this morning and made it back to Wyoming by early afternoon.  It is so good to be home after a long week away!

Chandler and Saraina were at our house when we arrived so I was able to scoop my little man up and get the cuddles I so missed while we were gone.  It seems like he grew so much in just a few days!
Mason was happy to see us as he said he was starving as he had to survive on only pizza, pizza rolls and pizza pockets while we were gone.  (Poor Boy!)  I decided that the best thing to do was to make Donairs tonight so we could have left overs after church tomorrow. 
I asked my dear sweet husband if would make up the meat so I could clean the house.  So as I unpacked and cleaned the house,
 Chep worked on the Donairs.
Take one pound of hamburger and add the following spices, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. ground oregano, 1 tsp. flour, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1/2 tsp. Italian seasonings, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder,  and 1/2 tsp. onion powder.  It is important is to mix, pound and throw the meat until the meat has broken down into a smooth texture.  (Yes, pick it up and throw it hard into the bowl!)  We love this recipe so much that we use four to five pounds of hamburger at a time and adjust the amount of spices. 
 After thoroughly mixing it, shape it into a loaf and place it on a broiler pan and cook at 350 F for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
It smells so good when it comes out of the oven!   
The sauce is the amazing and makes the Donairs so yummy. 
First measure 3/4 cup sugar and add 1 can of evaporated milk
 and 2 tsp. of garlic powder.

Slowly add four tsp. of white vinegar and stir.
 The vinegar will thicken the sauce.  
Our favorite toppings we use are shredded lettuce, onions, tomatoes and mozzeralla cheese.
Put everything into pita bread and enjoy!  So yummy!
