As you may know, I've been struggling with the transition from mushies to "regular" food. I've tried a couple recipes that I thought would work only to find myself stuck and very uncomfortable. Last night I found a recipe that I actually like and didn't get stuck. The recipe came from a Weight Watcher's magazine.
1 pound lean ground sirloin
1 c. frozen peas
1 jar fat free beef gravy (12oz)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 c. reduced fat cheddar cheese (optional)
Brown and crumble beef in large skillet over medium-high heat. Prepare mashed potatoes while beef is cooking.
Once beef is cooked, drain if necessary and return to pan. Add peas, gravy and black pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Spoon beef mixture over mashed potatoes.

It was a bit bland so I had to add some salt to taste. I had leftovers for my lunch today. Sad thing is, no one else in my family liked it because "OMG! It has peas in it". I, myself am not a fan of peas, either. However, in this recipe, you really can't taste them!! So go ahead, give peas a chance!
Also if you have any family favorite mushie meals, please leave it in a comment or send me an email through my profile. Thanks!
