So, I made another batch of food that will last me the better part of a week, for not all that much money (maybe $12 -$15).
So, here is a bowl of my latest batch (and it’s tasty).
Here is what went into it:
• 2 boxes of mac ‘n cheese
• 1 can of chilli
• 1 can of beef stew
• 2 cans of mixed vegetables
• 1 pound of ground beef
• 1 packet of taco seasoning
Okay, so how you make it is you make the two boxes of mac ‘n cheese as per normal. Put that in a large bowl and set aside.
Brown the ground beef in a frying pan. Drain the ground beef. Sprinkle the packet of taco seasoning evenly over it.
Pour water over the mixture until it covers the bottom with 5 to 10 millimetres of water.
Simmer it for 5 -8 minutes, stirring regularly. Set aside but leave in the frying pan.
In a saucepan put the can of chilly, the can of beef stew and the two cans of mixed vegetables. Bring to a simmer and simmer it for 5 – 8 minutes.
Mix the taco seasoned beef into the mixture from the saucepan (preferably in a large bowl or larger pot. Stir in the mac ‘n cheese mixture and stir liberally.
Cover and set aside for a day (in the fridge). This will let the liquid portions of the mixture to be soaked up by the non-liquid bits, as well as allow the flavours to mix and blend.
After that, simply scoop out what you want to eat into a frying pan, warm it up over medium heat and you are eating.
It’s tasty and filling.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
