For next time: This is so easy it's almost embarrassing!! Sprinkle a pound of ground beef (or turkey!!) with taco seasoning. Brown in a skillet, drain if necessary. Meanwhile, cook one cup of rice in seasoned water or broth (I add taco seasoning to this, too). Add rice to skillet and also add one can of drained, rinsed pinto (or kidney, etc.) beans. Always a good quickie at our house! I like to serve it with canned peaches or fruit salad on the side.

Hmm, so is it kind of like Spanish rice with beans in it? It sounds interesting, but I wasn't necessarily looking for something quick and easy- I had all day to putz around in the kitchen while my bf was at work, and just needed something that could either sit in the fridge or crockpot for a couple hours and still be good. I leave for work at 3:30 and he gets home at 5:30.

Yep, guess I misunderstood what you were looking for. Did you go with the salisbury steaks?

Nope- I made spinach and cottage cheese stuffed manicotti, put it in the crock pot and then just turned it on as I walked out the door :) should be ready to eat right around when he gets home. All he has to do is put the garlic bread in the oven.

Just cook it, breaking it up, with onion, S&P, garlic. Then if you have to you can freeze it. Later you can add seasonings to make chili, Italian sauce, etc, just adding the appropriate seasonings when you thaw it.

I'm going to suggest some meatballs. Very versatile with ingredients and sauces.
