I can't believe I haven't told you about the easiest meal to make yet. Bad, Heather, bad.
Anyway....I first made this as part of our Pilgrim celebration. Everyone loved it and said we should add it into our meal rotation. It's been over a year and everyone still loves it. It takes about 15 minutes to make and truly is one of the easiest things ever.
1 lb. beef, cut into bite-size pieces (stew, stir-fry, steak, whatever)
corn - either 1 16oz. pkg frozen (does not need to be thawed) or 2 cans, drained
1 can lima beans, drained
Brown the beef in some butter. Add the corn and the lima beans. Sprinkle with salt and cinnamon. I use about 1/2 to 1 tsp. cinnamon. I just lightly sprinkle it over the whole dish until it looks dusted, but not covered. Stir and let cook until corn and beans are heated through (you can add a little more butter here and there if things start looking dry). Serve.
My kids will CHEER when they see this on the table. They cheer for LIMA BEANS. How fun is that!!!
