A “whoops!” yummy last-minute dinner

So… you know those nights when you just can’t think of anything for dinner and you forgot to plan that week?


We had one of those recently.

The resulting meal was worth sharing though!

(sorry for the blurry photo)

Hot Mess ‘Cali-mex’ dinner

1lb ground beef –  turkey would work well too

1 large Tomato

1 avocado

1 tube of polenta

mexican spices of choice

topping of choice:  I had Thousand Island dressing, hubby dumped salsa and sriracha all over his.

Slice the polenta and either fry or pop in the oven to ‘crisp’ up. Brown the meat with the spices you chose – I used Chili Powder, Cumin, Salt, Pepper, and garlic.  Chop the tomatoes and avocado.

layer on plates:  Polenta then meat then Tomatoes, then Avocado.  Top with your ‘dressing.’

Ta Daaaa!  Dinner in a pinch.  Ducky LOVED it, so it’s toddler approved! ;)
