Happy Monday! It is hard to believe that it’s December already! I am so behind on my Christmas shopping, so that is definitely a goal for this week!! We are starting a fun Christmas tradition this year- I came across a Christmas Acts of Kindness Calendar that has a small act of kindness for every day in December leading up to Christmas. So I am blogging about that every day! Click here to see Day 1 and here to see Day 2! Now- On to our Weekly Menu!!
In a small bowl mix all of the ingredients together.
Makes enough taco seasoning for 2 lbs of meat
Breakfast for Dinner
Dinner at a Friends
I am going to use my Instapot for the FIRST time! I am pretty excited!
Intant Pot Beef & Broccoli
A few changes I will make- coconut aminos instead of soy sauce and arrow root powder instead of cornstarch.
Out to eat
Chili & cinnamon rolls
The basic Chili recipe I follow is:
- 2-3 lbs of meat this time I wanted to make extra so I used 2 lbs ground beef and 1 lb of ground pork (you can also use bison, bacon, or steak)
- 1/2 yellow onion & clove of garlic (diced)
- 2 cans of tomato sauce
- 1 can of tomatoes
- 2 cans of beans (I used chili & black beans)
- spices- a mixture of chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt & pepper.
Heat pan with olive oil & sauté diced onion and garlic
Add ground beef and pork until cooked through
Add beans, sauce, tomatoes, & spices
If you can, put all in a crockpot and let it all cook together for several hours
****Quick tip: I went ahead and cooked the hamburger for the Chili. Then I put it it in a freezer baggie and into the freezer. Then on Sunday that is one less step I will need to do!! This hands free baggie holder is a lifesaver!
