1Zumba, Which’s It?!

How blessed I am for having all of you with me, a day after day! Thank you one more time for all the lovely emails, and comments from our present friends, and from our new visitors, from the US, Italy, Philippines, Mexico, Australia, n Myanmar (Burma) 😉

Quick n Simple, or Quick n Elegant?

Haha! I’m talking about dinner, my dear 1Zumba friend! When you mentioned “quick meals” the challenge presents itself, which should it be – “quick and simple” – or – quick and elegant”.

For the quick and the simple:

1- Curried dried beef on rice with a tossed green salad, hard rolls, fruit compote, coffee, n milk.

Break contents of 1 5-ounce jar or 1 4-ounce package dried beef into small pieces and “frizzle” gently in ¼ cup butter or margarine in a frying pan. Blend in ¼ cup flour and ½ teaspoon curry powder. Add 2 cups milk and cook over low hear, stirring constantly until thickened. Serve over cooked rice. Serves 5-6 persons.

Corned Beef Hash2- Corned beef hash skillet, green beans, spiced peaches, rye bread, chocolate, cake , coffee, n milk.

Open both ends of 2 cans corned beef hash and push contents out whole. Slice each into  3 thick slices. Fry slowly in small amount of butter or margarine until crisp and brown. Turn with pancake turner and arrange at one side of skillet. Add drained contents of one can of green beans to other side of pan; season with butter, salt and pepper. Lower heat and continue cooking until beans are hot. Top each hash slice with a small spoonful of mustard and a bit of pickle or relish. Serves 6 (if you have an electric skillet, prepare and serve meal in and from it.)

Now the choice is yours. Bon Appétit 🙂

comA friend of mine said: “You made it sound so simple!”, when I told her how to cook some beef liver, getting rid of the undesired flavor by soaking it overnight in milk. That was one of the secrets of my grandma, and my mom too. I keep telling people that cooking is not such a big deal as it sounds to be. The simpler it is, the tastier it would be!  

If you keep in mind that it’s a mixture of one main ingredient: beef, fish, or chicken for example, with one or more spices plus salt. That is it! No big deal! These are the basics. You can add oil, margarine, butter, flour, veg, anything else you wish to add, what? Up To You!

Tammy, I would love to help you in your issue, but I didn’t get all the possible elements involved. If you would like me to give a good feedback, pls give me some details. Thank you.

One more question, in our 100 Question Competition:


If you sent the answer, pls attach your desired email for communication. 

Listening to some piano playing, or any jazz would be great with this dinner, along with a glass of champagne or  may be two; it’s totally up to you. It’s your call, my 1Zumba friend, which one is it?! 😉

Temporarily, we will say see you later in few hours, so be cool until then. Here’s my hugs n kisses ❤
