A simple "what you have around the house" dinner

It's been one of those weeks where I'd made up my grocery list as always, but just haven't had a chance to get to the store yet. So on a night like tonight, you'll find me rummaging through the cabinets to see what recipe I can throw together with the ingredients I have on hand.

Tonight was an interesting one to say the least, but the recipe that ended up coming together from what I had on hand turned out great...at least that's what the family said!

Here's what we put together:
1 lb. ground beef
1 can refrigerated biscuits (10 pack)
4 tbsp. butter (melted)
Ranch dressing
Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Simply brown your ground beef; drain, then mix with the melted butter. Place one biscuit in each muffin hole. Press the biscuit up the sides (about 2/3's of the way up). Spread the bottom of the biscuit with 1/2 a teaspoon of ranch, next place a spoonful of your meat mixture over the ranch, and finalize by placing a pinch of the cheddar cheese on top. Follow these steps one more time to fill the biscuit (ranch, meat mixture, cheese).

Bake @ 350 F for 20 minutes.

They were simple, tasty, AND kid-approved! Enjoy!

I'm so excited to start this great blogging journey with my great friend, Lauren. We can't wait to share all of the fun (and sometimes maybe even the "not so fun") things we get in to! What better way to start the blog than with a week's worth of menus and grocery lists planned out for you?? So here it goes, no turning back...
