Hi fellow Wonder Women! It’s Monday and ONCE AGAIN I’ve underestimated the amount of time home school, errands, emails, phone calls, home to do’s, etc. would take and found myself scrambling to leave my fam some sort of edible substance before I headed out the door to a dinner for Mercy House (You see, this is where the balancing part of family, work, life and passion comes into play)! I want to have MY OWN hobbies and support things I’m passionate about and need to make sure my wife and mom role is included. Notice I didn’t say make sure my roles are complete or perfect because, well, that would just be a lie. 😉
Soooo, here’s my less than clean but waaay better than take out MANIC MONDAY MEAL #1: Quick-cook Chili with Cornbread
Ground Beef (I use grass-fed)
Chili Mix (I don’t normally use this brand but it was all the store had at the time)
1 can Kidney Beans (undrained)
1 can Diced Tomatoes (undrained)
Cornbread (I usually make my own in a skillet and it’s YUM-MY but tonight it’s grab and go)
Toppings: Shredded Cheese & Sour Cream (There’s also a Lily brand)
1. Brown meat in large skillet and drain.
2. Mix in chili seasoning, tomatoes, and beans.
3. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Let it sit for a few minutes then serve in a big bowl and top with cheese, sour cream, and crumbled cornbread.
Now, if you’re wondering why in the world did she post this if there’s so many ( )’s? I did this because although I have come a LONG way from the S.A.D. world of the Standard American Diet, I’m still a busy working woman and mom trying to make it work with what I have on hand. I hope this will help some other women whip up a “less than perfect” meal at home.
