There’s no excuse not to make great looking food even when it’s not technically homemade. This is a simple dish I made up one night last winter when I didn’t have time to think up a whole meal, but had to put something on the table. It was also way before I got all super health conscience (which was yesterday)!
Throw some frozen beef patties in a skillet and brown them with your favorite mild seasonings. Then toss some frozen green beans (fresh if you have them) in pot for steaming. Reheat leftover mashed potatoes. While everything is cooking heat up a jar of your favorite beef gravy.
You end up with a great meal that doesn’t look like it’s a 5 minute microwave meal!
