Meal Planning Meal Planning

Ideas wanted to feed 6 grown men

Posted by   + Show Post
With as many hours my husband and his crew are working this outage they have been taking turns with providing dinner. They are working 13 hours a day with okay 1 day off a week and going on 5 weeks now with 2 weeks left.
Anyways, I am stumped on what to make them this week. I've made crab cakes, lasagna, sloppy joes, and 2 soups. The other wives or guys have made roast, chicken parm, casseroles, stuffed shells, chicken lot pie, chicken BBQ, BBQ, steaks, and gumbo.
This dish has to be able to reheat beautifully and needs to be able to be carried in 1 dish.
Any ideas? They are getting tired of the same ole things.
They have also had subs and pizza.

Chili is a good idea!
I've made cinnamon rolls already but they loved them so I can make more!

I've been out of school for almost 30 years, and this is STILL the one lunch that I remember EVERYONE loved!  They served it at least twice a month.  The cinnamon rolls were huge!

Fajitas. Precook everything so they can just rewarm it and provide tortillas, sour cream, guac, cheese.

 Men usually love this

 

This is a recipe that started out as one that I got out of one of my Campbell's Soup Cookbooks a long time ago. It originally called for Chicken, but I used leftover Turkey and added celery and green pepper to get a tiny bit more vegetables into my kids.
Turkey Tetrazzini
8 oz spaghetti
2 Tablespoons butter
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
1 small onion, diced (about 3/4 cup)
1/2 green pepper, diced (about 3/4 cup)
2 stalks celery, diced (about 3/4 cup
2 cans cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1soup can portion (or 1 1/4 cups) milk
2 cups cooked cubed turkey (or chicken)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
Cook spaghetti according to package directions, but undercook just a bit; drain. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter and cook mushrooms, onion, celery and green pepper until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in soup, and milk; stir to mix. Add cooked spaghetti to soup mixture. Add turkey, Parmesan and parsley. Toss lightly until spaghetti is coated. Pour into baking dish. Sprinkle more Parmesan on top if desired. Bake in oven for about 30 minutes, or until bubbly.
Notes: To save time, you can also just heat everything together on top of the stove and skip the oven.

When I was in charge of food service at a Pre-School/Kindergarten I put this on the menu and the kids loved it-we left out the parsley to appease the "yuck-green stuff" kids.

 Here's another great casserole

 

This is a favorite of my family


Chicken Spaghetti
8 oz. spaghetti
2 Tablespoons butter
2 cups fresh sliced mushroom
1 small onion, chopped
1 package frozen broccoli, thawed
2 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup milk
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.
In a skillet, melt butter and cook mushrooms and onion until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in soup and milk and heat through. Return cooked spaghetti to pot. Add soup mixture, chicken, Parmesan and broccoli. Toss lightly until spaghetti is coated, and mixture is heated through. Serve with additional Parmesan.
Notes: you can also used canned mushrooms, and frozen diced onions. For the chicken, I use leftover chicken, or sauté a couple of chicken breasts. After mixing together, this can also be placed in a baking dish, top with breadcrumbs, drizzled with butter and baked in the oven for 25 minutes at 350
