Easy One-Pot Ground Beef, Kale and Sweet Potato Skillet, a tasty 30-minute low carb dinner perfect for a weeknight meal.
Last week my cousin and baby were over for a visit. Wow, I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun! Having a baby in the house is the greatest thing ever!
It’s amazing the little things that will entertain a baby for hours. Thankfully I have a lot of kitchen cabinets, knobs and drawers which kept him busy for a whole week! But I’ll say this, I am guilty of not being able to keep my hands off of him for more then 5 minutes. Oh… and giving him treats before dinner -which I got yelled at by his Mom, Oops!
After I drove them to the airport I came home to an unpleasantly empty refrigerator. Go figure, right? My focus wasn’t on my to-do list but getting some quality time with my cousin and her baby.
I exhaled with dissatisfaction while a 3-day old ground beef starred deep into my conscious. I grabbed it -trying to figure out what else. Found some forgotten kale in a drawer and knew well enough to always have a sweet potato in hand.
