..go-to meals..

There are a lot of weeknights where I just don't feel like putting a lot of effort into dinner. I don't mind cooking, I just don't want to make something that has a lot of steps, or that involves me standing in front of the stove for a long time. So here's a list of some of my 30-minute or less meals..

~Sloppy Joes, mashed potatoes (instant if I'm really tired, Idahoan Golden Buttery are pretty good), and a veggie
~Kielbasa and kraut (slice up the kielbasa, throw it in a deep saucepot with the kraut to heat through), mashed potatoes, and Bush's black eyed peas.
~Taco Pie (recipe to follow soon)
~Breakfast dinner which consists of pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs
~Stuffed baked potatoes, especially good if we have leftover BBQ meat

So what are some of your quickie meals? Share, especially if you have a recipe to it! :)

  1. We could DEFINITELY eat together! I do the same thing, Harley! Here's another quick go-to! 2 packages of Mexican cornbread mix (and the milk & eggs the 2 packets require) a can of corn, can of pinto or red beans (or pretty much ANY canned veggies - drained, of course) and any kind of cut up cooked meat (I have used everything from burger to sausage to ham.) Mix the cornbread with the milk & eggs, add the rest, and stir it well. Dump it in a baking pan sprayed with vegetable spray for just OVER the cook time on the cornbread. A WHOLE MEAL by itself, but you CAN add soup or salad if it's not enough. You can also add grated cheese on top the last 5-7 minutes of baking. HUGS! And c'mom over! I have leftover grits & I'm planning to mix 'em with grated onion, minced ham, and cheese, and batter-fry the lil' devils! YUM!

  2. It is my delicacy too, besides in Kenya I too serve on a new meal to you called ugali(mixture of maize flour and boiling water.
