This week is going to be all about speed and convenience. I have a busy week planned so I don’t want to spend a whole lot of time cooking. Plus I need to use up some of the things in my Pantry so I can make room for more.. LOL..
I love finding reasons to break out my meat grinder. Got another one for you today.. It’s also a good idea to cut up the meat and put it in separate freezer/refrigerator bags for the other meals we will make this week.
After seeing the prices of ground beef this week I knew that one of our dinners would have to involve the meat grinder.
This first thing I did was to grind up 1/2 pound of the Roast and put it right into the meat grinder for Day One’s dinner.
Well as it turned out a little over 1/2 pound of Ground Beef was more than I needed to stuff 2 Bell Peppers.. Soooo. I made a meatloaf with the extra mix I had!!
On this next day I am making Stir fry.
We have a new Organic Grocery Store that just recently opened up and of course we had to go and check them out..
Came out with some very beautiful looking Bell Peppers.
1/2 pound ground beef (click here for How To Grind Your Own Meat)
1 – 8 ounce package of Microwave Seven Grains Do not microwave it
1 – 9 ounce package of Frozen Spinach thawed and water squeezed out of it
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1/2 tbs Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Ground Curry
A few shakes of Worchestire Sauce
1/2 -7 ounce can of Diced Tomatoes with green bell peppers and Herbs
Cut the tops off of the Bell Peppers and clean out the insides of the Peppers.
In a large pot bring water to a boil and put the Bell Peppers in the pot for about 5 minutes. Just long enough to soften them up a bit.
In a skillet cook the Beef adding in all the seasonings and Worchestire Sauce.
In a bowl mix the package of Seven Grains, cooked and semi cooled Beef, thawed Spinach and 1/2 can of Diced Tomatoes using some of the juices from it as well.
Stuff the Bell Peppers, place in 8 inch pan. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven covered with foil for 30 minutes.
Take foil off and cook an additional 10 minutes.
