Ground Beef on a budget. Any ideas??

MrsJTW | Nov 12, 2010 01:17 AM

I am usually pretty creative, but want to find a good recipe I can use. I can't go shopping again until pay day. Want to make my husband something good with what we have that might stretch into a few meals with leftovers.

I have 1 pound of lean ground beef. I also have egg noodles, a green pepper, onions, garlic, lots of dried spices, frozen peas, diced canned tomatoes, rice, a little bit of half and half. Also have kalamata, black, and green olives, some capers... Breadcrumbs, parmesan, olive oil, butter... Think that's about it. I don't necessarily need to use all of these, but do want to especially utilize the ground beef. Any creative ideas out there?? Thanks in advance!
