  • i usually start thinking about it in the morning, or just take a meat out of the freezer and think about what i'm going to do with it during the day.

    tonight - i'm making crunchy onion chicken like you see in the campbell's commercial. made this once before and the family loved it plus the house smelled great! take breasts, dip them in egg and roll them in crunched up french fried onions. bake at 350 til done. probably going to serve rice with it :)

  • Sometimes the night before, sometimes the morning & sometimes right when i need to be cooking dinner. I lack organization big time.

  • I think about it that morning. Or like the previous lady...I just take out meat that morning and think about it during the day.

  • I make a 2 week grocery list with meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then I go grocery shopping and only buy the stuff needed to make those meals (plus some snack foods) and so I pick and item off that list and make it for dinner...on this cold rainy day we are having Cincinnati Chili spaghetti =) One of my families favorites!

  • I make a dinner list before we get paid. Tonight is Hamburger helper because I have a doc appointment later today.

  • All these dishes sound yummy! I am making Chicken parm..with angel hair pasta, and garlic bread. I usually know the night before what I am going to cook. I am a very organized person...sometimes it scares me lol.
