OK, Ann and Benjamin
I've just figured out that you must be of British heritage?  Coffee and biscuits?  Certainly not the floury, flaky "muffins" made with shortening that we have in the States.  Your suggestion of a one pot meal is one of my favs, and so very, very satisfying!

Invent your own recipe with a one dish meal.

Cook meat and vegetables together.

Use pasta, rice or baked potatoes (buttered)

for the carbohydrate filler.

Serve coffee and biscuits,  fruit / ice-cream for dessert.

Fill up the tummies and there'll be

content all round.

today I'm gonna make one of my low-fat favorites...

You can cut this recipe in half if you like, to fit your needs, the full recipe will fill a pretty large skillet.

  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 2 cans of chicken broth (I believe you can use beef, or any other broth also)
  • small onion
  • 2 cans of cannoli(sp?) beans (white kidney beans...I have used regular when I couldn't find these)
  • about a tsp. olive oil, or oil of choice

 

Chop the onion and add to a large skillet with the heated oil....cook on medium till a little transparent.

Add the broth and the cabbage, cover and cook about 10 minutes.

Add the beans, cover and simmer about 20 minutes (or until cabbage is done to your liking).

ENJOY!

Psata with chicken and vegetables...

I made that last night...steamed broccoli, green beans, spinach, onions, green pepper and almonds to be exact...should have had a bunch of garlic in it but I'm out...sautee briefly with butter after steaming al dente...add browned chicken and noodles...

It's good and easy, I garnished with sour cream... you could use soy sauce and make it faux chinese...or cheese sauce, or just a bit of broth and butter...
