I need to make a meal plan for next week though. I feel like things go so much more smoothly during the week when I have a plan and I don't end up rummaging desperately in the fridge at 5pm.
Thank you! :) Yes, I'm sure after a while I'll get used to the new look. It just took me completely offguard! LOL
I got the recipe from another (fitness) board; there were 2 recipes posted and I kinda combined both, taking some ideas from one and the other
3 can chili beans ( these are like the seasoned kidney beans not a can of chili with beans ).
1 - 8oz. can tomato sauce
2 cups water
1 can green chilies
1 envelope Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix ( dry )
1 lb frozen corn
1 chopped onion
In a Pam sprayed pan, brown turkey & onion together.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and simmer 30 mins... super easy, filling and good!
2 cans chopped tomatoes
2 cans Rotel chopped tomatoes w/chilis (or one if you prefer it milder)
1 chopped onion
2 cans hominy (I sometimes used frozen corn, but I like hominy better)
4-6 cans of various beans: black, kidney, red, white, whatever
2 T. powdered Ranch dressing mix
2 T. taco seasoning
Water to desired consistency
Optional garnishes- Avocado, cilantro, grated cheese.
I'm also currently trying to get back into the groove of planning my weekly meals! I've totally slacked the past months; mainly because my kids eat something else than us most of the time (especially DS is terribly picky.. *sigh*) but I do like to know what we'll have and I know DH loves coming home, knowing what's for dinner instead of having a clueless wife! LOL
Tonight I've made a potato soup with spinach dumplings; first time I've made the dumplings and they turned out nice! DH liked it and even DD asked if she could have it next time with us after trying a spoonful!
