Meal in a Minute

Last week we skimped on buying groceries. We were trying to save every penny possible and when Thursday rolled around, we were out of ideas for supper. I found a few things in the fridge and threw them together and voila, we had a meal!

I started with ground beef (FREE ground beef, remember me telling you my dad bought it for us?) and diced potatos. Let that brown. Throw in some salt, pepper, cumin,and a little onions.

Then I sauteed Carrots, Brocolli, Cabbage, Garlic, and Onions in about a tsp of Olive Oil. At the same time, I steamed Brussel Sprouts. Set them aside.
On another burner, I cooked about a cup of Quinoa. If you haven't had this, you must try it! It cooks like Rice, but is a better grain in my opinion! I love this stuff!!
Dumped in the sauteed veggies. Stirred.
Then, mixed in the meat, and topped with brussel sprouts. How easy is that?! It was SO good too. C really loved it. {Oh yeah, I mixed a little salsa with ours too. Gave it that extra bite it needed}
