Made up dinner

Last night I made-up a dinner for the on-going grocery challenge. Meaning, I didn't use a recipe. I just fudged it. :)

hash browns,
left-over black beans
some pre-diced onions and green peppers

Cooked over medium until done...

Then added 3 eggs. this didn't quite turn out like an omelet, because there were more potatoes and such, but it kind of held it all together. One of those breakfast-for-dinner type meals. :) We both seemed to like it. Although, Lil M isn't huge on eggs... which is why I didn't use more. She does like beans.

I put the leftovers on an english muffin with slice of cheese for breakfast this morning. That was good.

This weekend, it'll probably be turkey burgers and veggies from the freezer. I have a fully cooked chicken in the freezer I'm going to pull out and make something with, too.

I am trying to hold off until middle or end of next week to have to back to the grocery. These things definitely help. Shop from your own fridge/pantry. :)



  1. That actually sounds good!

    Good luck in the challenge!

  2. I will be doing the same this week, it's fun to see what you can come up with, with the food on hand. I know I have plenty in my pantry to keep us going. Getting creative like you did really helps.
    Well done.

  3. Sounds great! I love it when something thrown together turns out good. I really know I got it right when my husband says, "This is really good-- did you write it down?"
    Good luck!
