I get stuck in a rut with dinner menus.
I make the tried and true, a lot.
But we both get bored (me more so) with the same old, same old.
A few years back I sat down, typed out all the dishes I make on a regular, semi regular and once in a blue moon dishes.
I actually, really I did, typed out all the menu choices that I make and that my DH likes.
I printed it out, and put it on the fridge with some magnets.
We were looking at it the other day and realized it had been a long time since I'd made a couple of the items on the list.
First one was SOS. I don't make it with Chipped Beef, I make it with ground beef, and in fact, I'd forgotten how much I like it.
Which is why I'm sharing it here. This is also one of those recipes where I will use prepared gravy mix, the low sodium one that is. And it also uses, gasp... canned vegetables.
And honestly, it's not one of my all time pretty looking dishes, but it sure tastes good. (I forgot to take a picture of it with my good camera, and just used my phone camera)
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 small onion, diced
1 can mixed vegetables or 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables.
1 cup water
1/2-1 package low sodium dry brown gravy mix
1 tsp. olive oil or butter
Saute the onions in the olive oil or butter until translucent. Add the ground beef and brown together.
Serve over buttered toast.
I scored some lovely asparagus the other day so I just added them to the plate.
Vegetables are good for you, right?
This is such a quick and easy meal to make and it tastes great as well. I think I have to remember to make this more often.
