There's lots of ideas.  What are some things that you like to eat?  A main dish?  Chicken?  Beef?  Pork?  Wild Game?  Fish?  or Vegetarian?

For quick, we love meatball subs.  Just buy the frozen meatballs (we like the party size) and cook in a can (or jar) of marinara sauce.  Now put on sandwich rolls (or dinner rolls for kids) and top with mozzarella cheese.

  • When I'm making this, I want to just drink the sauce....it's really yummy!

    Chicken Sopa

    ~1 onion grated

    ~1 pound of cheese

    ~1 can cream of mushroom soup

    ~1 cup sour cream

    ~1 cup milk

    ~1 can Ortega chilies (very tiny can)

    ~1 can enchilada sauce

    ~1-2 cups shredded chicken

    ~12 corn tortillas cut in strips

     

    Whisk together soup, sour cream, milk, enchilada sauce, then add onion and green chilies.

    In a casserole dish layer in order tortillas, chicken, sauce, cheese.  Bake at 350 about 30 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.

  • Try this recipe from SanDiegomaxmom it is wonderful and comes together really easily.

    LOL periwinkle!

    You're right, though.  If you have cooked chicken or leftover chicken, this literally takes minimal effort.

    OK...that one is my mom's recipe frm the 1970's Bridge Club days.  Here's mine form the 1980's college days.  So easy and makes a big impression.

    Cheese-It Chicken

    -Chicken breasts, rinsed and dried

    -coat with sour cream

    -dredge in chrushed cheese crackers (goldfish, cheese nibs etc.)

    -bake in 325 oven on greased cookie sheet for about an hour until crackers look toasty and chicken is done.

    I HATE when I feel like I'm in a rut too.  Usually I dig out a good cookbook or go to allrecipes.com and you can look up a recipe by what you have in your house. 

    What does your family like to eat??

    If you like fish, I found a great recipe for Salmon on allrecipes.com under the healthy cooking tab. 

    Maple Salmon.  My family LOVES it.  It's healthy, yummy, and is very simple.
