If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed that I was vacationing in Santa Fe, NM for an EARLY anniversary trip with my hubby. We had an amazing trip allowing us to eat, shop and site see through the gorgeous artsy town. Typically when I get home from a trip its after dinner or we pick something up so we don’t have to worry about dishes or cleaning up a mess. We arrived home pretty early in the afternoon so I knew dinner would be up to me.
I’m not embarrassed to admit that I had my fair share of hamburger helper dinners while growing up. My parents would leave for a function and my sister and I would be in charge of dinner. If it was up to my sister to make dinner you could count on hamburger helper or her taco salad recipe. I’m almost 30 years old and I haven’t had hamburger helper in over 15 years and I can’t say I miss it all that much. This cheeseburger gnocchi recipe reminds me of the simplicity of those dinners along with the cheeseburger and pasta twist.
The best part about a quick dinner is that I had all of the ingredients except for the beef. Quick store trip and 20 minutes later dinner was served for our family and it didn’t come from a box. I even had the time to take and edit photos, so that I could spend more quality time with the little one before bedtime.
I can’t wait to share the details of our fabulous trip to Santa Fe in the next week or so.
