Day #42

I had some leftover cooked ground beef in the fridge that I needed to use up.  I was in the mood for something Mexican, but I am out of tortilla shells and that meant no taco salad or burritos.   I decided to experiment a little.  I cooked up some couscous, mixed in the ground beef, some diced tomatoes and green peppers, a couple spoonfuls of salsa, and some diced cheddar cheese (I am also out of shredded cheese).  It was surprisingly better than  I was expecting.  Like the best "gunk" of a taco salad or nachos, without any lettuce or chips.

My dinners get creative when I am running low on food in the fridge and pantry.  Tomorrow (or Tuesday) will be grocery shopping day :-)
