Chili is definitely one of the “lazy” meals. I need to go food shopping tomorrow, but for tonight, I had a pound of chop meat…albeit, frozen…but still there for the taking. So I popped it in the microwave to defrost for a few minutes, heated up my pot, and threw it in. I cut up a sweet potato, an onion, garlic, and a few spices. I threw them all in and let them simmer. As a side, I steamed some broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and carrots; tossed them with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and some cumin. After they were coated, I put them in a tray and put them in the oven for 25 minutes to bake. It made for a pretty good meal. Lots of yummy veggies!
I’m about to make my shopping list for tomorrow. I think I’m going to try some new things. I also think I may make a huge pot of veggies too, this way I have them for a couple days instead of just 2 or 3. I tend to look for recipes online, but lately I’ve been venturing out of the box and trying my own things. When I come up with some good recipes I will gladly post them for all to see.
