I haven’t started dinner yet!!! I am sure everyone has been there before. I had a menu planned but the day was crazy and I did not get things pulled out of the freezer and put together in time. I was helping Tobin with something in his shop and we were chatting and enjoying the time together when I looked down at my watch and realized that the time had just flown by and it was 5 already.. and no dinner… so did I call for pizza? Run and get fast food? .. nope.. here is what I did..
I grabbed a pound of hamburger out of the freezer. While that was defrosting in my microwave I chopped up an onion. I pulled a big soup pot out and started cooking up my meat and onions. When that was done I added 12 cups of water, 3 chicken bullion cubes, salt, pepper, 1 can of green beans, 3 cups of frozen corn, 1 can of diced tomatoes and let this come to a boil. When it was boiling I added 3 cups of tortellini noodles that were cheese filled (I buy them in bulk at a grocery store). Let this cook for 10 minutes, added a bit of Tabasco sauce, and Voila!!! We had dinner in less than 30 minutes.. I served it with crackers.. a salad would have been good too.. but it did not happen…
Amazing what can happen when under pressure!
