Sometime I just get into a groove and to save time for the rest of the week I cook 3 or four meals at once.
Last night was one such night!
First on the menu, well mostly to snack on while I cooked, some hummous and veggies!
I finally prepared some soup from the vegetable broth I had slaved over last Friday (by slaved I mean thrown veggie debris into water and cooked for 4 hours without paying attention)
This hearty soup consisted of:
1 cup of black beans
2 Russet Potatoes
1/2 cup of basmati rice
Several medium-sized carrots
Several stalks of celery all sliced up
Some green onions
One large Green Pepper
some salt and pepper
I brought it to a boil and let it simmer on low for a couple of hours while I prepared my pasta (The actual meal of the day)
Today's pasta ended up with a mixture of left-over spaghetti mixed with some shell noodles to finish off a couple of bags (luckily both were whole grain, phew, dodged a bullet there)
The sauce was rather meaty with a pound of extra lean ground beef, an onion and several cups of spinach simmered in a can of tomato sauce.
When all was ready, I mixed all of the noodles up with the sauce to make it all so hamburger helperesque
Throw on some mozzarella cheese, blur the picture and you have a good meal...or three!
Does anyone else have a day of dinner mass production?
