Rather than stocking up my pantry and fridge, I cleaned them out a bit. Here’s what we had for lunch. It was yummy!!
1 box Zataran’s Jambalaya
1 box uncle Ben’s wild rice
1 lb browned ground beef
1 lb smoked sausage
2 zucchini cut in small cubes and sautéed
4 stalks celery chopped
1 bunch green onions chopped
1 can tomato sauce
1 can Rotel mild
1 can chopped tomatoes
Cook rice as directed.
Throw everything in a pan. Simmer about 20-30 minutes until heated through.
To have a bit of crunch, add the celery, onions, and zucchini 10 minutes or so before serving.
You could also add other veggies like spinach, carrots, etc. or meats like chicken or shrimp. Whatever you have on hand.
I didn’t get a good picture, but here is a picture of the leftovers.
(I put leftovers in four lunch-sized containers so Ron and Julie have lunch ready this week! I’m also making a huge pot of chili! Yummy lunches for my housemates!)
