    My goto quick meal would be what my children call “mush”. Quickly cook ground beef(we usually use turkey) add cream of mushroom soup and milk and some worstershire sauce. Cook till comes to boil. Add minute rice. put lid on for 5 minutes to cook rice. Dinner is ready! add green beans and salad to complete meal. Quick and yummy.
