  • do you have a crockpot? earlier this week i cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot smother in bbq sauce. it was delicious!

    i bought chicken drumsticks and ground beef in bulk last week and split it up in different sizes to make it last. i made chicken and yellow rice one day, today i am making baked chicken (as you saw in your other post), one night i made meatloaf, hamburger helper, spaghetti. next week i'll probably make chicken enchilidas, chili, chicken salad, hamburgers, and order out one night. leftovers the other nights. :) good luck! explore and have lots of fun! trial and error!

  • Well..... you could always dress up your current dishes. My favorites are: Meatloaf (with onions and green peppers chopped up inside) wtih sweet potatoes (mashed), tilapia with scalloped potatoes, tilapia with red beans and rice, black beans over rice with pork (any kind of pork), and then the always special one ::: fish sticks for kids, crab cakes for parents! :)
