I did it! I "threw" some things together and made a meal! And it wasn't half bad. I actually really liked it. We all know how much I LOVE to cook (note my sense of sarcasm). But here's what I did:
1.38 lbs of cubed beef
1 can of tomato paste
2 cubes of beef bouillon
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1.5 cups of water (approximately)
16oz bag of frozen mixed veggies (I used carrots, broccoli, cauliflower - you know, California mix!)
I browned the beef in some oil in a skillet. Then drained and added the tomato paste, boullion cubes, Worcestershire sauce, water and veggies. Then I brought it to a boil. I used enough water to almost cover all the contents of the skillet.
I think it came out pretty good. I'm so out of the "blogging mind" I forgot to take a picture. But I packed some away for lunch tomorrow, so if you follow me on Instagram, maybe I'll remember to show off my creation!
Needless to say, the kids were not thrilled. But that's no surprise. Lightning thought the beef was ok, and Tink ate all her carrots. Buzz was a trooper and ate most of his dinner.
All in all, not a terrible night. I made it back to CrossFit, and fed my kids a pretty healthy meal, even if they didn't finish it. Bring on tomorrow!
