I've been really bad about cooking lately. I decided I needed to STOP THE INSANITY (funny her saying outlived her!).
So I went onto my trusty friend www.kraftfoods.com and picked out 7 meals, printed out my shopping list and went to the grocery store.
For about $100 here's my dinners for 7 days! I did have a few things already that I didn't need to buy but not much.
After I got home I cooked up 3 recipes. Two of them said they could be "made ahead" so I saved those for later and we ate the other one for dinner last night.
Last night we had Quick Fix Beef Burrito Skillet
VERDICT: I think I made this before. I forgot my kids hate beans. I thought it was great but the kids wouldn't eat it. Well Melissa ate the tortillas out of it, Jessica picked out everything that wasn't a bean and I think Trevor fed his to the dog when I wasn't looking.
Tonight we had Layered Fiesta Casserole
I made this all yesterday except didn't cook it until today.
VERDICT: we put some sour cream on top. DH loved it. It was almost too spicy for me. I think I figured out it's because the salsa I have is medium and I'm a wimp. I think Jessica liked it. The little kids are spending the night at Grandma's so I get to eat this for lunch for a few days.
Tomorrow we are having:
Barbecue Beef Filled Biscuits
I'm pretty sure we've had these before. I cooked these up yesterday too. They just need to be warmed up for dinner tomorrow.
Edited to add
VERDICT: Good but kind of just blah. Probalby the BBQ sauce I used. Needed more or something with a little more spice. (didn't use the bulls eye one that it said to use)Pin It
