Hamburger Tator Tot Cas.
HB Meat( or turkey)
1 small can of cream soup( I use cream of chicken but you use what you like)
Brown your meat and add in soup( sometimes I also add corn here too). In a 9x 13 pan layer HB mix, tator tots, cheese.( Repeat layers until your pan is full or you run out) cook in oven on what ever your tator tot bag says to bake on. ( all your doing is cooking your tator tots)
Otherwise I do Beef Broccoli with left over beef (from the pot roast or grilled meats)
1 lb thinly sliced meat cooked to medium rare or so otherwise it dries out, c. of broccoli fresh or frozen, 1 c. carrot slices, 1 small onion sliced, 1 c mushrooms (optional for kids who hate them), 1 can beef broth, 1 1/2 TBSP Corn Starch, garlic, red pepper flakes, soy sauce
to 1 c. beef broth add corn starch and 2-3 Tbsp soy sauce and mix in, set aside. unless already cooked cook your meat set aside
to a wok or skillet, add 1-2 TBSP oil and heat to medium, add 1 clove of garlic (or 1 tsp of the already minced stuff in a jar) 1/2 - 1 tsp red pepper flakes and cook until garlic starts to turn slightly brown. Add carrots and broccoli (if fresh) and cook 3 minutes, if using frozed broccoli add now with onions cook 2 minutes more, add mushrooms cook until softened. Add the beef back in and heat through. Add beef broth and cook until slightly thickened. serve with white rice.

I love to use my crockpot, especially when I'm running all day.
I throw a chicken, potatoes and carrots in the pot with some water, whatever seasoning and it's ready at dinner time.
Chili! Very easy! Get the packet of chili seasoning at the store and follow the back. I will add sausage to it sometimes too.
Pot roast in the crockpot too.All these I spend maybe 20 min in the morning. Then I will usually make a salad and have dinner rolls with them

Line a 9x13 non stick baking pan with torn up pieces of torillas, then top with a thin layer of the beef mixure, then a thin layer of cheese. Repeat (torn up torillas, beef mix, cheese). Then bake in oven until top of cheese just begins to brown.
Let it cool before serving and enjoy!
Sweet & Sour Meatballs
1bag- frozen meatballs
1jar frame jelly
1 jar Chilli sauce (usually found by the ketchup)
There is no exact measuring in this. Put the desired amount of meatballs in the crockpot. In a sauce pan on the stove add to tasted the grape jelly and chilli sauce. Simmer on low until grape jelly is more like a sauce. Poor over meatballs in crockpot. You can serve with mashed potatos and use any extra sauce in the crockpot as a gravy or you can add the meatballs to hoggie buns and have meatball sandwhiches.
Hope some of these work for you!!
