The only way my wife will eat this is if I add a slice of ham and cut it from corner to corner.

But this is what I'm talking about, a simplified version no doubt, but I live on egg tacos and assorted companions like bacon or sausage.

Tomatoes are your friend. Someone reminded me of cantaloupe once and I put them in my will.

I am determined to start a comprehensive grocery list that makes it to where you don't waste food. I waste so much by not constantly looking through my fridge.

Grapes, I've wasted too many grapes.

My mom had cantaloupe for dinner. Yummy

BLT, Peanut butter and banana on toast (my mom, yuck) , cut up fruit in a bowl, apple slices and colby cheese, fried sweet potatoes (in ghee) and a chicken breast, a big juicy burger with tomato and onion, french toast, (my mom has a beef allergy the burger is mine) 

The nearest Kwik Trip for a ready made sandwich and some chips. I live in Iowa and one of those is about 3 blocks away. Really good rolls too, with butter cream frosting!

Egg tacos are the absolute staple of South Texas.

Google pictures of breakfast tacos and you'll get the idea.

My wife doesn't like the texture of bread as much as the taste and texture of tortillas.

You can combine anything from potatoes to refried beans.

It's not quite pizza but... hmmm  egg and pineapple taco... excuse me, gotta go.

How to Make It - Egg Taco (and don't forget the jalapenos!!)

Step 1

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Step 2

Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the eggs, stirring, until set but still soft, 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 3

Divide the eggs among the tortillas. Dividing evenly, top with the avocado, salsa, Monterey Jack, and cilantro.

Stir fry with veggies and rice

Chicken or beef cut into small pieces

Rice (minute rice is easy and fast)

Frozen vegetables such as California mix vegetables

Fry meat in olive oil. As the meat gets close to done, add the vegetables, stirring constantly.

Serve with soy sauce if desired.

Spaghetti

1 jar spaghetti sauce, such as Ragu

1/2 box uncooked spaghetti

Frozen meatballs or 1/2 - 1 lb hamburger

If using hamburger, fry till no pink remains. If using frozen meatballs, thaw them in microwave. Add spaghetti sauce and warm. Cook the spaghetti. Serve with green salad and garlic bread.

Roast vegetables

Peel and cut up (1/2" cubes) 2 sweet potatoes and 1 potato. Add cut up onions and some cut up carrots (I use frozen). Toss together with olive oil and salt. Bake at 425 - 450 until browned, 40 minutes or so.

Smoothie

1 small container Greek yogurt - plain, vanilla or strawberry

1/2 - 1 banana

1 cup strawberries (I use frozen)

A splash of milk or almond milk

Blend. Add more milk if too thick.

Pancakes

Purchase a box of pancake mix - with "complete" pancake mix you only add water; with others you add eggs, water or milk, and oil. Follow directions. Fry in electric skillet at 350.

Mashed potaters! (remember that movie?  Sling blade, "French fry potaters")

Anyway,

Mashed potaters!

Get a bunch on potaters, cut up (Yukon type),

boil them for like 45 min. to an hour, I think-depends on how many potaters you got in a pot. Or you just check them to what softness you like!

Then smash them!  After draining of course.

Meanwhile, melt some butter, add to heated milk, and a bit of salt and pepper!

Then, add to smashed potaters and mix and smash around a bit and serve!  Or eat it all yourself. Enjoy!

Oh, don't forget  the main dish, chicken or turkey.  Marinate first, with whatever ingredients, cook it, then you finally got your main dish with some Smashed Potaters.

I'm gonna do that tomorrow.

and to go with the mashed potatoes....POT ROASt

Large blade cut pot roast ( you may need to ask for this cut)

Lasagne sized pan/dish 

place meat in pan

dump a pkg of Lipton's onion soup over the top

seal with foil

cook at 250 for hours  4-5? the key is slow

gourmet version.....add potatoes and carrots before sealing

make big so you have left overs and some to freeze

GOOD ENOUGH FOR COMPANY MORE THAN EASY PINEAPPLE ANGEL FOOD CAKE:

 

TAKE ONE PACKAGE OF DRY ANGEL FOOD CAKE MIX, PLACE IN BOWL

TAKE ONE REGULAR SIZE CAN OF CRUSHED PINEAPPLE WITH JUICE AND POUR OVER DRY CAKE MIX

 

MIX DRY CAKE MIX AND PINEAPPLE WITH JUICE TOGETHER IN THE BOWL - THAT'S ALL YOU DO!

 

PUT INTO GLASS 13 x 9 BAKING DISH; BAKE AT 350 UNTIL LIGHT BROWN ON TOP.

 

NOTE:   WHEN CUTTING, USE ONLY A PLASTIC PICNIC KNIFE AS ONE CANNOT EASILY CUT ANGEL FOOD WITH A REGULAR KNIFE.

SO GOOD.

REALLY EASY MUFFINS OR CUPCAKES:

 

Take one box of dry cake mix, I like to use spice cake mix

 

Pour dry cake mix into bowl

Take one regular sized can of pumpkin, pour it on top of the dry cake mix

Add 1/2 cup of egg beaters or one beaten egg, mix well

Put into paper cupcake liners in cupcake pan

Bake at 350 until done and toothpick comes out clean.

 

NOTE:  You cannot taste the pumpkin in the muffins.  Nicely moist and cannot be frosted because of them being moist. 

You can use any type of cake mix; I've used chocolate and it was very, very good and still cannot taste the pumpkin.

One could add chocolate chips or raisins to a mix, but I've never done that.  If adding such items, use a Tablespoon or so of the dry cake mix to mix in with the chips or raisins; this way, they will not fall to the bottom of each muffin, but stay mixed throughout.

Weird recipe.  Haven't tried it yet....but maybe someday I'll check it out:

 Black Bean Brownies

These gluten-free treats pack a powerful protein punch.
Yields 12 servings

Ingredients
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
3 egg whites
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup maple syrup, honey or agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions
Heat oven to 350° F and lightly grease an 8x8-inch baking pan. Blend all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a food processor or blender until the batter reaches a smooth consistency.

Fold in chocolate chips and pour into the baking pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Garlic butter flavor rotisserie chicken from Walmart is my friend.    Mom loves it chopped with a little mayo like chicken salad on a Bacon flavored Ritz crackers .   Pears on the side . Light & easy on digestion .    Or we fix mashed potatoes & green peas with the chicken .    Marie Calenders honey roast turkey dinner
