This was a I don't want to go grocery shopping today..what's in the fridge...mini bell peppers, a few stalks of celery, and 2 onions, I used only the smallest one;1/2 bag shredded cheddar cheese. The pantry looked sad- 2 cans of tomato soup, a bag of pasta, some spices. The freezer had 2 packages of ground beef- I took out one....and this is the recipe I made....Maybe I'll go shopping tomorrow...ugh..but worst of all is putting the groceries away when I get home....I guess my energy is low with this warm weather we are having..105 today....well that's a lot cooler that June's 110!!
