    • Since I’ve started cooking again, I’ve been making up lunches for hubby and me and a co-worker.  But I notice I’m starting to repeat my meals already.  I guess men probably don’t care, but I get bored with meatloaf every monday.

    • I have made beef enchiladas which are very easy to make and much lighter than your typical chicken ones. All you need is ground beef, red peppers, jar salsa, shredded cheese and flour tortillas (although recipe calls for corn tortillas).  I found that recipe in one of my Kraft Food and family magazines

    • I love quinoa salad with steak.

      Easy to make.

      If you have Trader Joes near by you can buy either arugula or spinach leaves and buy Traders Joe bruchetta.  Cook quinoa toss with leaves and brochette as a dressing and add grilled steak.  If you don’t have TJoes, you can make salsa or bruchetta yourself and mix it with leaves and quinoa.

      It tastes even better the next day.

    • happy  Beef enchiladas are one of my very favorite.  We ate them all last week.

      The quinoa salad sounds good.  Will have to see if I can get the men to eat it.  Sometimes I can get spinach leaves at the grocery store, and I do have quinoa in the pantry.

      As for Trader Joe’s, we don’t even have one in the state, much less one near me.  I’m 35 miles from a very basic old supermarket.  Fresh produce here is never ever “fresh” unless it’s something that was in season at the farmer’s market.  And since I’m now working 6-12 on Saturday, I can’t even get to the farmer’s market.   Sigh..... I love where I live, but it does make cooking anything interesting a challenge.

    • you can also put the meat into a marinara sauce and serve over pasta.  Saute peppers/onions and a light broth and serve over rice.  Make a sweet/sour sauce (equal parts, catsup, sugar and vinegar) and make a sweet and sour dish!  make a “leftover” stew/stoup w/ potatoes, carrots, turnips-whatever you’ve got!
      so many things you can do!  make a fried rice w/ veggies and meat!

    • Beef stew or a hearty beef soup, lasagne, beef tips in a cream flour sauce over noodles.

    • I need to do lasagna one of these days.  Hubby loves it.  I’m sure my other man will eat it and it freezes well.  Just expensive to make.

      Still too warm at work for soups and stews, but I’m eagerly awaiting fall weather.

    • Roast beef sandwiches or beef tortilla rolls/wraps are good too.
