Fried potatoes and baked beans
To Thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul: in Thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed. Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on Thee shall be confounded. Ps. 24:4 Show, O Lord, Thy ways to me, and teach me Thy paths.

I've been on a 'sheet pan meal' kick lately.  I try a new one once a week.  Tonight is sheet pan beef and broccoli.  I'll make a side of garlic basmati rice to go with it.

So, the idea is that you cook and entire meal on one of those large, jelly roll, sheet pans.  My family is too large to feed with just one pan, so I usually do two, and occasionally a third, glass baking dish, depending on what I'm making.   If you line it with parchment or aluminum foil, it makes for easy clean up.  The stove doesn't get dirty, and the oven does most of the work. 


As an example, a couple weeks ago, I did sheet pan chicken fajitas, and it was delicious!  I cut boneless chicken thighs into strips, and marinated for an hour or so in my favorite fajita marinade.  Then, I sliced a couple onions and belpeppers, put that on the sheet pan with the chicken, and roasted in the oven until the chicken was done.  Serve on flour tortillas with whatever extra toppings you like.

The demise of the sheet pan meal is when a thunder storm rolls in right as you're preheating the oven, and you lose electricity.  So.....peanut butter and jelly, I guess it is!  >:(

Oh, no! I hope you can salvage the ingredients and cook it another time.

We held out for a bit and waited.  Electricity came on in time for a late dinner.  It was really good.  Everyone are it.  But, I prefer the sweet marinade for chicken or pork.  I think next time I do beef and broccoli, I'll make it more savory. 

Tonight is my husband's night to cook; he's making jambalaya
