  • stuffed shells (pasta shells stuffed w/cheese baked in spagetti sauce)
    chicken fajitas- you can eat just the chicken strips or make it into a salad for you they still get something diff
    make your own pizza night, chef boyardee has a boxed pizza kit, w/the dough mix (all you need is water, and a little veg oil), sauce, and cheese, you just add some more cheese, and the toppings you want, or you could do bombolis
    ummm what do you absolutely not like? might make it a little easier to give you ideas

  • well...things i don't like? the list would be much shorter if i listed the things i do eat. i like pizza (cheese and pepperoni), cheeseburgers (katcup only), spagetti, i like beef fajitas with cheese (homemade...not really a fan of a lot of the marinades other people put on stuff), i'm allergic to salontro (sp?), chicken strips are my best friend, chili soup, i'll eat pork, most beef (depends on the seasoning), tacos...that's about it.

    Can you help me??? i'm trying to be good and branch out a little husband is sick of me cooking the same like 7 meals.

  • what's a bomboli?

    Answer by soccermama08 at 3:41 PM on Apr. 23, 2009

  • bomboli is a pizza brand, its a premade crust you add the toppings and sauce yourself. they sell individual sizes and larger ones. so you could do make your own that way everyone else still gets diff toppings
    if you like spagetti you should like stuffed shells, or lasanga (you can do homemade if you want or stoufers is my fave, the meat tastes real not fake)
    chicken alfredo? cook chicken strips (non breaded), boil some pasta pour alfredo sauce over it (it is the white sauce near the spagetti sauce)
    tysons makes a pork roast that is preseasoned, i like the teryiaki one over white rice thats good and it only takes like 45 mins to cook it. you'd find it near the reg meats
    pot roast, throw a roast in your crock pot w/baby carrots and red potatoes about a cup of water for a few hours season however you want and do whatever other sides you like.
    looks like you like mexican too...homemade enchiladas? CONT

    Answer by vabchmommy at 3:49 PM on Apr. 23, 2009

  • enchiladas: make beef like you are making tacos, add some cheddar cheese, wrap in a flour toritilla cover in enchilada sauce (in the mexican aisle) and cheddar cook til cheese melts. you can serve w/lettuce or sour cream or any other toppings you like
    chicken and dumplings? boil a chicken, peel meat off bones (or chicken breasts if the whole peeling the meat grosses you out), boil til cooked keep the water, mix self rising flour, water, and melted butter so it looks like a bread dough, take a teaspoon use it to drop teaspoonfuls of the dough into the water, (w/the chicken back in it) and bring it to a boil. (you can add celery and carrots if you like them, add them when you cook the chicken) takes about 45 mins for the dough to cook...
    i'll message you some more stuff :)

  • Most important is that you are eating 7 servings of whole grains and 7-8 servings of fruits and veggies (in a rainbow of colors) every day. There is not enough room for me to post recipes here, so feel free to contact me offlist. For example: sweet potato and black bean burritos; Italian stew; spinach and chick pea curry; lentil tacos; noodles and broccoli with peanut sauce; etc.

  • oh i know how you feel, I'm picky as heck too. lmao.

    Try chicken breast, with italian dressing. (marinade for 6 hours before cooking to lock in the flavor better).

    Or home made mac and cheese (a stick of velvetta cheese, some spread cheddar cheese, milk, 1/4- 1/2 cup flour, salt, pepper, 1/2 stick butter)
    in pan melt butter, and flour, add cheeses (the large brick of velvetta cheese cut up into small cubes, about half a cup of spread cheddar cheese, 3 cups milk, a dash of salt, and a dash of pepper. As the cheese melts, add more milk until it suits your taste and texture. ) Cook large shell noodles in a pan, drain. When cheese is melted (be sure to stir often and cook on LOW). put noodles into a bowl (oven save), add cheese blend, stir, and place in oven for 30 mins on 350, or until top is slightly brown. Can add crushed crackers if desired.

  • for above recipe (add whole box of noodles) will make a large bowls worth, great for family meets, or large meals, and even better as left overs.

    Or try cheeseburg joes.

    cook pound ground beef until browned, drain. Add cut of ketchup and a cup of BBQ sauce. heat on low for 5-10 minutes. Put on bun, and add a slice of american cheese ontop of it) and its ready to serve (makes about 4 sandwiches).
