Hey y’all!

I’m very sorry for not posting anything yesterday. I was exhausted and i really needed some sleep. Now I’m back, I got a good night sleep ready for a new post.

A few days ago I talked about how you easily can make a meal that’s almost bullet proof. Spaghetti with ground beef, marinara sauce and mushrooms. The thing about this dish is that it’s very easy to make, and very hard to fail at. So if you want to learn how to cook this dish  is the perfect way to start. I will walk you through two easy steps on how you proceed.

  1. Boil the spaghetti as written on the label. Add the small mushrooms into a skillet with some butter until they got a golden color. Then sett the mushrooms aside for now.Slice up the onion, and throw them into a skillet with some butter. When the onion reaches a golden color add the ground beef.  Season with minced garlic, salt, pepper, chili flakes, Tuscan spice blend, oregano and basil. When the ground beef is cooked, add a glass of marinara sauce , add the mushrooms and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
  2. When the pasta is done, use a pasta drainer to drain the pasta before you add it into a serving bowl. Then add the mushrooms,ground-beef marinara sauce over and mix it well together. Serve it up with some bread on the side, maybe a salad as well.

This dish is super easy, it’s very tasty and a good starting point if you want to learn how to cook.

For all the other home cooks out there let’s talk about grocery shopping. As I’ve said before making a meal plan for the week helps you save a lot of money. $14 is my budget for dinner each day. It sounds like a lot, but considering the prices on food in Norway It’s actually not that much. I try to use less, and sometimes I succeed at that, but it all depends on how creative I can be when I’m writing the list. Sometimes I can get as low as $6 bucks, but as I said it all depends on what I have the fridge and the kitchen cabinets and how cheap I can get the ingredients I need. I love making a list every weekend for next week’s dinner plans. Why? because it makes it so much easier. When Monday arrives I go online and order the heavy groceries I need, and later that week I buy all the additional groceries I need that I didn’t order online. Saving money is something I like to do, that way I can save up for a vacation or something else I really want.

This was it from my side of the kitchen today. I hope y’all have an amazing day and a great weekend.

I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post. Coming up tomorrow; My mom’s famous Lasagna recipe.

Until next time..
