Mac & cheese in the thermos.
Snack: cup of grapes and some veggie sticks & oat cereal
Verdict: success! Everything was eaten. :)
Tonight's dinner was inspired by Damn Delicious' one pot wonders <http://damndelicious.net/2014/05/16/one-pot-pasta/>. It actually was quite tasty. This picture, I realize, doesn't seem so. :(
One pot wonder
1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1 small eggplant, cubed
1 c carrots, diced
1 lb mushrooms, sliced
1 26 oz jar marinara or spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb pasta
1 1/2 c water
Brown ground beef. Drain excess fat. Add onions, cook until translucent. Add veggies. I used what I had on hand - eggplant, carrots, and mushrooms. Add 1 jar of marinara or spaghetti sauce, 1/2 lb of pasta, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 12-15 minutes, or until pasta is to desired softness.
Serve with Parmesan cheese.
