One Dish Meals

Amanda says, "I would love more detail about what you guys eat." 


Simple is a happy word in my vocabulary.  Since I try to do a large portion of my meal preparation in the morning, easy one-dish meals fit the bill.  Served with bread, a casserole or pot of soup is filling and stretches to feed us all without extra stress or dirty dishes. 

Some of our favorites:

Debbie's Casserole

Chop 1 small onion into large chunks and place in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish.  Add 3-4 cups baby carrot.  Add 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks.  Stir in 1 pound raw ground beef.  Pour 1 can cream of mushroom soup over the top and stir to coat vegetables and meat.  Bake in 375 degree oven for an hour.  (This dish is easily adaptable to what veggies you have on hand.  Experiment with sweet potatoes, peas, or corn.)

Taco Soup
Brown 1 pound ground beef in soup pot or dutch oven.  Add 1 can diced tomates, 1 can corn, 1 can chicken broth, and 1 package taco seasoning.  Drain and rinse 2 cans kidney beans and 1 can black beans.  Add to soup.  Let simmer 20 minutes and serve with grated cheddar cheese and/or sour cream.

Hungry for more?  A few additional delicious standards:

Cream Cheese Chicken Soup
Spaghetti Sauce
Mexican Casserole
