Good Mornign!

As my famiy is growing (adding my 18 yr old nephew)...I know that our grocery budget is also going to EXPAND!!! I have NT and REALLY want to buckle down with methods and such.

We do only drink/cook wiht Raw milk and buy only organic. I want to make sure that I have enough ideas/skills to keep our family eating correctly...and not have to resort (of course, this IS my fault) to eating boxed foods out!

Please help!
I "should" be making our own yogurt, cottage cheese and, well, everthing else. We buy freerange eggs and mostly grass-fed beed (we buy all-grass fed when we can find it/afford it).

Any ideas for some quick "casserole"-type dinners? Or anything else?

First of all, I have to say that I love watching food network, I get great ideas for recipes that I can convert to NT.

I made a mexican lasagna today that I got the idea for from Rachel Ray's 30-minute meals. It's not an exact "recipe" cause I don't really measure anything, but I can give you the basic way I made it. It was really good. I know NT says not to used canned anything, and I did break the rule a little, I used canned beans, but you could certainly soak beans overnight.

1 lb ground beef
2 gloves garlic, diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 or 3 cups beans (I used garbanzo, black, kidney, anything would work)
3 fresh tomatoes, or salsa
1 cup black olives (optional)
chili powder
sea salt
one package tortillas (I used Ezekiel corn tortillas, they came out great)
shredded cheese

Brown the ground beef, garlic and onion. Then add the beans, tomatoes, and olives if using. Then add chili powder, cumin, and sea salt to taste. Put half the ground beef mixture in a glass 9X13 pan. Put 1/3 of your shredded cheese on top of the ground beef. Cut your tortillas in half. Place half of them in the pan on top of beef and cheese. Make another layer with the rest of the ground beef, 1/3 of the cheese, and the rest of your tortillas. Put the last of the cheese on top of the tortillas. Put it all in a 400 oven for 20 minutes, or til the cheese is melted and tortillas are hot.
