Beef- It's What's for Dinner

"What's for dinner tonight?" 

Wouldn't it be nice to come to MOPS on Thursday (March 26th) and leave with dinner ready for that night? Well, that is exactly what is going to happen! 

Whitney from Wildtree will be our guest speaker, and she will bring most of the necessary spices and ingredients for each person to make either Gourmet Java Burgers or Mozzarella and Tomato Chicken Pasta. Yum, right?

So, here is what you need to do...

COME TO MOPS with either 1-2 pounds of cubed, uncooked chicken OR 1 pounds of each ground turkey and ground beef. Bring your meat in some sort of lunch box or freezer bag with ice to keep it cold during the meeting.  Here is how Whitney broke down the two options with everything you need: 

OPTION A: Gourmet Java Burgers

 Bring to meeting: 
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • ½ medium onion, finely chopped/diced
  • ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 4 oz blue cheese, feta, asiago, or parmesan cheese

At cooking time: 
1 egg     
Optional: 4 oz mushrooms, finely diced

 Mozzarella and Tomato Chicken Pasta

 Bring to meeting: 
·         1 ½ - 2 pounds chicken breasts, cubed

To Add to meal when serving:
·         1-16 oz. package mini penne pasta or bowtie pasta (or choice of pasta)
·         1 pound steamed broccoli or Zucchini (may substitute frozen mixed veggies)
·         ½ cup reserved pasta water- for sauce
·         ½ cup half and half- for sauce
·         Parmesan cheese (optional)- for garnish

Hope this makes sense.  If you have additional questions, email Whitney at or call/text: 865.300.8386.

See you Thursday!

P.S. Wishing ALICIA PEARSON a very happy birthday today! Hoping the joy you bring to others comes back to you.
