Delicious Day

Day 308 in my journey to join up with Mickey at Magic Kingdom in October (4 months and 1 day to go)

Today’s plan was R & R…rest and relaxation.  It has been everything I hoped it would be.  I slept late and have taken two naps since I got up this morning.  I can feel the stress melting away, and I can exhale…  Ahh…

So since my plan for the day is so event-free, I will share my dinner recipe for this evening.  It is from my current favorite cookbook: Betty Crocker’s 30 Minute Meals for Diabetes.  The recipe is called Quick Taco Skillet Casserole.  It makes 6 servings, each 3 carb choices.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1&1/2 cups uncooked instant brown rice
  • 1 cup chunky-style salsa
  • 1&1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (14.5 to 16 oz) whole tomatoes, undrained, cut up
  • 1 can (11 oz) whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
  • a can (6 oz) tomato paste
  1. Directions:
  2. In a 12-inch skillet or a 4-quart Dutch oven, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked.  Drain well.  Return beef mixture to skillet.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients.  Heat to boiling over high heat.  Reduce heat to medium-high, and cook 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until water is absorbed and rice is tender.  Stir before serving.
