I am trying to decide what to have for 2nd dinner tonight. I have ground beef cooked up with some seasonings, and I have a craving for potatoes. Its either potatoes, or spaghetti, which I've eaten every day for the last month. I'm trying to switch it up. I can run to the store if need be.

The greatest unhappiness lies in trading what you want most for what you want at the moment.

hmm, theres a whole gape load of things you can do with meat and potatos..
-you could boil the potatoes whole..drain,
-put back in the pot, off the heat to dry them.
-sprinkle salt and pepper over them and tumble and toss them around with a wooden spoon lightly breaking them up
-drizzle some olive oil over it and you have a carbed up base with some healthy fats
You could Sautee some veg in olive oil(mushroom, garlic, onion, broccoli, snow peas,chilli flakes, cumin, mustard powder etc work really well together), then throw your cooked beef into the pan full of veg for a few seconds to reheat and juicen up, and toss
pour over your potatoes and you have a caveman meal

how about a meatloaf and potatoes (baked in with it) Sounds like a pretty good meal!
Hamburger steaks and potatoes are pretty good too....Come Join My New Group: "BIGGEST LOSER CLUB"

Here's what I would have made.
Cut up some potatoes into cubes and put them in boiling water for 3-4 minutes.
Heat up a skillet and add a little oil.
Add potatoes to skillet, cook until they are crispy-add more oil if you need to
Add salt and pepper to the potatoes
Add beef to warm it up
Squirt some ketchup on top.

I ended up boiling the potato (should have cut it up first), threw raw beef in a skillet to cook (forgot I finished the already cooked stuff), then put in the potatoes and tore up some cheese slices (not enough, the rest of it was moldy). And threw on some hot sauce. Should have used ketchup. It was a pretty good meal, aside from taking long as hell to boil the potato.I used to be 135 pounds, give me a break.
