What is your family favorite food? I need new dish ideas.

My family loves Chicken Stew. I need something, i could hold in the fridge for a day or two. I cook two meals on Sunday...

I throw boneless chicken in a big pot, season with garlic, onion, adobo, oregono boil it up a little.
Then once the chicken is almost cooked, I add potatoes, carrots, celery, corn, bring it to a boil again.
Then add a little can of tomatoe sauce-goya seasoned, sofrito, and some sazon....

I lower the heat a little and let it boil until the chicken is falling apart.

I love it with salad on the kids love it with rice. go figure... with rice it is delicous too.

  • the favorite meal I make is baked macaroni and cheese. If I dont use the pre-packaged kind, I grate the cheese myself and wait till it is crispy in the oven. if I use the prepackaed stuff I mix it half and half butter and sour cream, and sprinkle the top with grated cheese for extra crispiness. the favorite meal SO makes is a yummy pasta alfredo w/ chicken. He also makes a delicious pasta dish with chunks of tomato, onion and ground beef or venison (if it's in season).

  • I often stick with the basics, but add awesome sides to the meal. For instance, I make spaghetti and meatballs but along side I make homemade cheesy bread. My daughter loves cheesy bread. Also it's not hard to make mozzarella sticks.
