I am a woman obsessed!
"Obsessed with what?" you ask!
This is what my desk looks like! Craziness, pure craziness! On the up side though, I have managed to get a lot done.
When it comes to gardening I am clueless! I was never blessed with a green thumb. I can just look at plants and they die. It's sad, I know! I have vowed to myself that I will follow through with this garden, and it will flourish... even if it kills me!
So I plan. I plan every last detail!
I've decided that Square Foot Gardening is the way to go for me. I had planned on ordering my boxes from the website, but now that I've seen how cheap it can be to buy the materials and build it myself, I believe I'll go that way!
Now I'm making my list of what exactly I want to plant, and over at $5 Dinners I found FREE gardening planner printables! They have been a lifesaver!
In the midst of my garden crazy, I realized that the hamburger meat I had set out to thaw, hadn't thawed enough for me to make the cheeseburger sliders like I had planned! So it was back to the drawing board for dinner....
I ended up making Cheeseburger Pasta with corn and green beans! It was yummy.
1 ½ c uncooked whole wheat penne pasta
¾ lb lean ground beef
2 T finely chopped onion
1 can (14.5 oz) no-salt-added diced tomatoes
2 T dill pickle relish
2 T prepared mustard
2 T ketchup
1 t steak seasoning (Montreal steak seasoning)
¼ t seasoned salt
¾ c shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions, optional
Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Drain pasta; add to meat mixture.
Stir in the tomatoes, relish, mustard, ketchup, steak seasoning and seasoned salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand until cheese is melted. Garnish with green onions if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
One serving: 1-½ cups
