Tennessee Baked Beans


th

Tennessee Baked Beans

1 diced green pepper

1 diced onion

3 tbsp minced garlic (I use on in olive oil)

2 lbs ground beef (I use a leaner for less fat)

Place in frying and brown hamburger while sauteing the vegetables.  Cover partially then add

16 oz can of pork and beans

1 24 oz bottle of ketchup

1 21 oz bottle of “Honey” Barbecue Sauce (It does make a difference)

Stir and simmer.

(The irony of this is that I originally came to Bristol TN for a wedding and got the recipe which I took back to New York State and made for a Benefit that I was supposed to cook for.  This made a great size batch as I doubled it and it was all gone in no time…people were eating it like a chili.  Now I live in Tennessee…)

Healthy Eating in a Pot


There is nothing nicer than cooking everything in one pot and then letting it simmer for dinner.

My hubby’s favorite way to eat eggplant is to dip it in egg, then in Italian breadcrumbs and deep fry it in my wok in Olive Oil.

I love the draining rack on the side which also keeps the eggplant warm till he sneaks in and eats them lol.

The recipe for the pot of yummy is as follows:

1 medium onion diced

3 tbsp minced garlic

1 chopped eggplant

1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half

1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

1 pound ground beef or turkey

Olive Oil for bottom of pot.

I add the olive oil, onion and the hamburger to brown the hamburger then drain off the excess fat.  I add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer till everything is cooked thoroughly.  (Takes about 30 minutes)

Today I had a little leftover spaghetti sauce and a few bowtie macaroni’s so I added them to the mixture and stirred well.

Quick Meal for one…


Hubby of course wants his soup again…I needed something a little different yet healthy so I went for the griddle that was on the stove and added two pieces of tilapia…

I then threw some fresh spinach atop of each then some season all and garlic powder of course…

Covered and allowed to steam

Setting the thermostat to low so I could do other things….

then turned fish once and recovered…

placed one in plate then added….

You got it whipped cream cheese from Philadelphia Brand and it is soooo goood….

Adding second piece of Tilapia and spinach over while still hot….

then dig in…

Dinner in less than 20 minutes….and is actually healthy for you…

What's 4 Dinner Solutions

This is a most excellent way to use up those proliferating cherry tomatoes.  I cooked these down in some olive oil with minced garlic, a chopped Vidalia onion, and plenty of fresh basil.  Bowties work fine – any pasta will do.  So easy to make:  Halve the tomatoes and chop the onion, pour a fair measure of olive oil into a big skillet and warm it up.  Toss the veggies in and cook them down, adding some tomato paste towards the end.  If the sauce is too thick just ladle some water from the pasta you have a-boil.  I add thin sliced fresh basil as it cooks and save some for garnish at the table.  Use lots!  Dump your drained pasta into the sauce and stir to combine, plate and serve immediately.  I grated some Asiago cheese on the pasta tonight.  Mmm… cheese!
