Hamburger Helper Chili Mac

I can be a lazy cook. Sometimes I just don’t feel like doing much, and on those nights, I tear open a box of Hamburger Helper and grab a pound of hamburger from the fridge.

I was lazy tonight and made Hamburger Helper Chili Mac.

It was pretty good.  My husband used to love Hamburger Helper and my teen son loves it, so once in a while I let the laziness pour over me and I make something simple.  OH, and I added one can of drained corn, so that my meal was pretty much a one-pan meal.HH chili mac

Blueberry Pancakes

I love blueberry pancakes!  This morning I made up a batch of pancakes; my teen didn’t want any, so there’s a bit of batter in the fridge for later 🙂

I used the recipe on the box of Bisquick, except that I cut the recipe since in half because I was the only one eating pancakes.

Ingredients

1 cup of Bisquick

1 egg, beaten

1 cup of milk

1/2 cup blueberries (mine were frozen and I didn’t thaw them first)

Directions

Mix together the Bisquick, egg and milk.  I mix it up good, but leave a few little lumps.  Add the blueberries and mix a bit more.

On preheated, greased skillet, pour out 1/4 cup of batter – this is what I used to make three pancakes. When the tops of the pancakes are all bubbly and turn them over.  Let them cook until the other side is browned.

Enjoy with butter and syrup.
