Thrifty Thursday


After a brief hiatus from meal planning I am back.  I have lots of new recipes that I am trying out this week and I think many of them will end up here.  A friend of mine has like a million Mennonite cookbooks and I have borrowed a few.  I have always heard good things about these cookbook and have been very excited to try out a few things.

I fixed this meal for dinner Monday night because we had company over for the day and so I was late getting started with dinner and had a small window of cook time between Smiley meltdowns (she did not nap well).

I now present to you  Beggar’s Dish

Beggar’s Dish

  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can pureed tomatoes
  1. Cook the beef and drain it.
  2. Add the beans and tomato.
  3. Heat until warm and serve it up.

It was kinda like a poor mans chili.  I served it with a side of corn.  Everyone in this household loved it.

The bonus to this super cheap meal was that we were able to re-purpose the leftovers into burrito filling for Tuesday.
