  • We had a "we are sick of chicken but thats all we have" night and so I made this:
    Cut chicken breast into small pieces dump that into a baking pan
    Mix 1can of tomato paste and 1can (drained as best you can) diced tomatos add parsley,oregano, basil, and minced garlic (sorry i dont know measurements since I just dumped stuff together til it smelled good) mix it all up and dump on top of the chicken
    Cook for 30 minutes on 380 and in the last 10 minutes add mozz cheese to the top so it melts
    Boil noodles and VIOLA
    QUICK & EASY... Make some garlic bread and your good... It looks fancy and tastes delicious...

  • Use your grill-hot dogs & burgers are always easy, bbq chicken, london broil (I marinate top sirloin steak in olive oil, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, garlic, parsley, s&p or montreal steak seasoning or teriyaki sauce), beer can chicken, etc are faves. Spaghetti & meatballs or lasagna are god options that go a long way & can be made in advance. Use your crockpot.

  • You'll need potatoes (estimate 1-2 per person), good-quality turkey or beef-based sausage and a large bag of frozen, chopped spinach. Peel and cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces, same for the sausage. Oil a large flat pan with oilve oil and toss the potatoes with two or three tablespoons of olive oil, garlic and a hefty shake of a salt-free seasoning of your choice. Mix the seasoned potatoes with the sausage in the pan, and por the frozen chopped spinach over it. Fill that pan right up with the spinach, it will cook down. Cover the pan and bake at 400 degrees for about an hour, uncover and gently stir at about 30 minutes. Correct for seasoning before serving.
