I moved the Breville smart oven before I did laundry last night. I decided it’s really too heavy to move each time.
Plus the Breville, which I’ve used extensively, has been acting a little hinky lately. I’m hoping it’s not going out, because it’s kind of expensive. And I really do love it.
If you look closely, you can see what I picked up at the antique mall earlier in the week. Three vintage jars.
They were a couple of bucks apiece. I just love vintage jars. So many things you can do with them. At three for less than $10, I thought the price was too good to pass up.
I made taco soup in my electric skillet. I will eat it for a few days, then freeze in individual baggies for quick meals.
Sometimes I make cornbread to have with it. On this day, I threw some Fritos in and topped with cheddar cheese. Yum!
Taco soup is a quick meal. Ground beef, various cans of beans, one can whole kernel corn, taco seasoning packet, Ranch dressing packet (I use half of each packet) and a can of Rotel.
Some people like to make their own seasoning, and I think I might do that next time. I think the original recipe had additional cut up tomatoes, but I don’t add that.
This time for beans, I added a couple cans of pinto beans, black beans and navy beans. Use as much as you desire.
Just cook the ground beef. Add the beans, corn, seasonings and Ro-tel. I let it simmer for about 15 minutes. I used to make it in my crock pot, but it’s faster just adding everything to the cooked ground beef.
What is your favorite go-to meal? Do you like to use the crock pot and make freezer meals for later?
Let’s share ideas and maybe we’ll all have something new to cook and maybe to freeze for another day.
