  • blt salads are a big hit around here.
    baked fish & seasoned wild rice, a nice salad or fruit
    stuffed baked potatoes - you can stuff them with taco fixins , broccoli & cheese, turkey ham & cheese.
    pizza burgers- burgers with provolone cheese & pepperoni on top on wheat rolls.
    baked ziti with ground italian sausage , mushroom & cheese on top
    do a deli night, turkey,ham,roastbeef lunch meat, cheeses that you like, hard grinder rolls, pickles, lettuce tomato, mustard or mayo . add coleslaw or pasta salad, chips for a no cook nite.
    i'm a cook so i do these things for my family when we fall into a rut.

  • Flour, vegetable shortening, and baking soda for home made tortillas for your baked chicken! Really cheap!
