How to Commit to “From Scratch” Meals For Your Family

Local business owner and mom, Carrie Abbott committed to making a “from scratch” meal for her family every day for a month. She shares her secrets to this easy meal plan.

Simple Taco Salad:

1 lb. Ground Turkey or Ground Beef

Taco Seasoning

1/4 C. of Salsa

1/2 C. Water (if following seasoning recipe)

1 Head of Iceberg Lettuce, chopped

Shredded Cheese

Crushed Tortilla Chips

Cook meat through. Follow seasoning mix instructions, subbing 1/4 cup of water for fave salsa. Cut Lettuce. Fill each bowl with chopped lettuce, taco meat, sprinkle cheese and tortilla chips. Add additional toppings to your taste!

 Risotto’d Pasta:

1 lb. Barilla “cut spaghetti” (Kroger) or favorite thin spaghetti broken

4 T. butter

4 C. broth, veggie or chicken

1/2 C. frozen peas

Cooked Chicken, diced

Parmesan, grated

Melt butter in pot. Add the dry cut spaghetti in the melted butter. It’s okay to brown the pasta a little. Remember no water at this step. Add 1 cup of broth at a time, stir until absorbed. Repeat. Add frozen or thawed peas or small veggies as desired. Top with grated parmesan and pepper if you like.
