Default Baked potatoes and.....????

Dd2 has requested baked potatoes for "her" meal this week (each kid gets to pick one). I want to cook some sort of main meat dish to go with but I can't figure out what goes with the meat I have. I have 2 options: cubed beef (like stew but a slightly better cut) or ground beef.

Any ideas? We have a fairly well stocked pantry/fridge.

Thanks!

Meatloaf would definitely shock my kids. I have all the fixings for that I think. Dh would be taken right back to his childhood.

My kids LOVE chilli on baked potatoes. It's often a meal to use leftover chilli though.

What about meat balls? Like Ikea style meatballs

I vote for either chili (served over top ) or make a creamy gravy with the cube steak.

I make a shepherd's pie with taco meat under and mashed potatoes and cheese melted on top. Bake it.

Grace is not a destination, it's a journey.
I first learned to show grace to my child that was not shown to me, then I learned to accept it for myself, and only recently have I been able to have grace for others more.

My dd has requested the baked potatoes so she can slather them with sour cream, butter & bacon bits. They are her favourite. So my meat 'go with' can't actually touch the potato.

I am going to make chili for later this week though. We eat it over rice. It is the only dish I make where my kids will eat beans.
