I’m thinking these ingredients will make a dandy hash for our lunch!
Whenever possible I like to cook once and eat twice (or more)! Some time back I browned some ground beef; I labeled and dated it and popped it into the freezer. Last night I moved it to the fridge to thaw. I poked around the pantry and found a can of wax beans…thinking of color, I imagined a colorful lunch to delight The Normanator, who is a meat and potatoes kind of guy!
I will combine the famous trilogy: onions/carrots/celery with the beef. I’ll peel and chop the potatoes. Nothing is easier than a one skillet meal! A bit of salt and pepper and I’ll have a quick, easy, frugal main course. The wax beans, heated in a saucepan, will round it out! YUM.
When you are working *outside the home you arrive at mealtime, tired and hungry. By combining these simple ingredients you can create a filling and nutritious offering for those you love quick as a wink. You get bonus points if you can persuade the family to help peel carrots or taters; double bonus points if they will help with the chopping! grin
*This is just as true if you are working INSIDE your home, you stay at home mommies n daddies!
SIDEBAR: It is enormously helpful if you can spend some time on your day off or in an evening to pre-cut your veggies and keep them covered in water in the fridge. That will cut down on your prep time when you are ready to cook. END SIDEBAR
