It's that time of year again. The first day of daylight saving time, when we wake up and just like that we gain an extra hour of sleep. Sounds like the first paragraph of my biography, I wake up and just like that I gained an extra pound.
We’re all guilty of saying “I’m so busy” at least once a day. Has this become the new normal? Have these three words become the scapegoat of 2017?
Get ready to enjoy this quick and easy Sheet Pan Chicken and Sweet Potato dinner. A complete meal made in one pan and ready in 40 minutes. Not a carnivore? Fish not your thing? Go ahead and sprinkle some of this seasoning on a fresh Portobello mushroom and grill.
Sunday's Meal Prep was today's lunch. While cooking this meal I learned a very important lesson.
It’s Monday! ….. wait, is the ! too much? Well, I’m excited because I’ve got the perfect no fuss, ready in 30 minute meal “DECONSTRUCTED CABBAGE ROLLS” AAAAAND you’ll have plenty for lunch the next day!! So this recipe makes it a !!! type of day …. Right? 😊👍
Deconstructed Cabbage Rolls
1 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, chopped
½ - 1 head cabbage, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (14.5-oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce (I use home made tomato sauce, you can use a low sodium, no sugar added brand)
salt and pepper, to taste
In a large pan, brown ground beef. Add onion and continue cooking until translucent. Drain extra fat in the pan. Return ground beef to the pan, add garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute.
Add olive oil, cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and pepper to the meat mixture and stir to combine. Cover and simmer about 20 - 30 minutes until the cabbage is soft.
Serve and enjoy!
