The theme of this week's menu is a weird one. We've been eating
Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Ham & Cheese Breakfast Quiche (using up the last of the frozen Christmas ham)
Tuesday - frozen appetizers & leftovers (New Year's Eve)
Wednesday - ribs & sauerkraut in the crock pot with pierogies (New Year's Day tradition)
Thursday - Chili Mac (recipe below)
Friday - Easy Cheddar Chicken (Relish)
Saturday lunch - Black Bean Soup with Avocado Salsa (Relish)
Saturday dinner - BBQ Chicken Hashbrown Casserole
Sunday lunch - Quinoa Salad with Asparagus & Beans (Relish)
Sunday dinner - Salmon on Greens with Ginger Dressing (Relish)
I try to cook a lot over the weekend so we have a lot of food leftover for when the weekdays get busy. That way if I don't have time to cook a dinner, we still have a healthy option & don't have to eat out.
12 oz ground beef (I often use ground turkey or deer)
1 medium onion, chopped (I don't like onion so I sub onion powder)
14.5 oz stewed tomatoes, Mexican style
1 1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 tbsp green chili peppers
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 cup dry elbow macaroni
15 oz kidney beans, drained & rinsed
In large skillet, cook beef & onion until meat is browned, about 10 minutes, then drain fat. Stir in stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili peppers, chili powder and cumin. Bring to a boil, then stir in macaroni & beans. Return to boil, reduce heat, cover & simmer until macaroni is tender, about 15 minutes.
