After our delicious overdose of carbs and steak last week, we decided to keep this week’s meal a little healthier. So we did the unthinkable and cooked a meal that included vegetables! Right now you are probably about to close the tab and move on to another blog because you don’t believe anything with vegetables could ever taste good, but wait! It was actually tasty, I promise!!

It may look like something that's already been digested, but I promise it tasted good!

Disco Pockets! A creative way to use leftover beef stew

  • Food: Disco Pockets
  • Ingredients: leftover beef stew, Grands Biscuits, cheddar cheese
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 – 20 minutes

Raise your hand if you remember the Hot Pockets jingle from the mid 90’s… I really hope everyone reading this literally just raised their hand into the air – that is how amazing the Hot Pockets jingle is.  In case you are having a hard time remembering, or you just want a reminder as to the awesomeness of the pocket, check out this wonderful commercial.


If I had the ability to predict the future, I would say that some Sunday meal this coming spring will be a homemade Hot Pocket extravaganza.  However, I cannot predict the future, so I will not say that.  What I can say is that Hot Pockets are amazing, especially when they are homemade.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “why do I care about your love (obsession) with Hot Pockets–this post is supposed to be about leftover beef stew!”  Well, dear reader, Kelly and I outdid ourselves with the creative leftovers post this week.  We turned our beef stew into the filling of a homemade Hot Pocket.  It was our lazy version of an attempt to make a beef pot pie!

  • Food: Beef Stew
  • Ingredients: beef, broth, potatoes, carrots, onion, flour, pepper
  • Prep time: 1 hour
  • Cook time: 3 hours
  • Cost: $2 per meal

This week’s meal was beef stew: the perfect winter meal. It went really well, except for one horrendous mistake: we didn’t start cooking until 3:30 pm. This would be an appropriate time of day to start cooking any other meal, but beef stew takes about a hundred million years to cook.
