What are some good recipie ideas?

I feel like we eat the same things all the time and I'm sure we do.

I am a VERY picky eater.

I don't eat tomoatoes, peppers, onions, pickles, etc. so anyhting I make has to be kind of plain as far as crazy ingredients go.

What are some things I can make that don't involve too many extra's such as that?

  • Here's my tried and true Tuna Casserole recipe...

    it requires two cans of tuna, can of cream o mushroom, box of mac-n-cheese, frozen peas and french friend onions. So simple... boil the mac, while it is cooking mix the drained tuna with the soup and the cheese packet, add a cup of milk and the peas. Mix together. Put 1/2 the can of french friend onions and the cooked/drained macaroni in the mix and toss well. Pour into a casserole and cook at 350 for 35 minutes or until bubbly, then top with the rest of the onions and cook just 5 minutes more.

  • I have very pickey eaters here also, I know the feeling. I make a crab salad for them, and they all love it. I use the differnet color noodles, cook according to package. and I put cucumbers cut in quarters, italian dressing and vinegar to taste, immitation crab meat, mix and chill. half of my family like tomatoes and the other doesn't so I use cherry tomatoes so they can pick them out easily. I have seen the same recipe with Ranch dressing and bacon bits, but I have not tried it beings I am not a big fan of ranch. alsoyou can use shrimp instead of crab meat, just make sure you cook them.

  • Have you ever made Chicken Monte Cristo Rolls? So simple but yet very impressive. Take skinless boneless chicken breast and pound them thin. Salt and Pepper the chicken, put a slice of ham on it and a slice of provolone cheese. Roll it up and secure with a toothpick. Bread it and brown it, then bake it in the oven. Serve with Noodles and your favorite vegis. Just remember the toothpicks are in there!

  • Combine first 8 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently (this can also be done in the microwave; use a tempered glass bowl, like pyrex, cook for 20 seconds, stir, repeat until smooth). Remove from heat. Cook pasta in boiling water 8 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add tofu, onions, and carrot; drain. Place pasta mixture in a large bowl. Add peanut butter mixture; toss gently.
