Ground Beef + Roasted Tomatoes

I haven’t really had the energy (or desire ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) to cook anything elaborate or create new recipes lately, so simple staples it is! I hesitate to even call this a recipe, it’s really just assembling a few ingredients. Perfect when you’re short on time but still want flavorful food!

This week I made beef for lunches and prepped baked sweet potato and some greens. For the sweet potatoes, simply bake them at 400 for about 40 mins or so. Mash with a fork, add butter, season, voila. Good food can be easy!
