We are having grilled chicken club sandwiches, french fries, broccoli, and apple salad OR pork chops, baked potatoes, broccoli, and apple sauce. Haven't decided yet.

It is just the time of the month to hit the store.  I had rice, but no veggies, no meat and no potatoes.  I went tonight and picked up a few things.  Everybody wanted some fruit, eggs, brussel sprouts (my SO has been craving them) and picked up a few frozen stouffers meals (feel like a terrible mom, but we HAVE to eat).  Whatever it is, is kicking our butts.  I haven't used a frozen meal in almost a year.  I usually have enough left over to freeze.  I can usually make a meal on the fly, but when you are out of just about anything nutritious it gets a little more difficult.  Thanks for the suggestions though, I really appreciate them.


Quoting kirbymom:

 Do you keep a supply of potatoe's and rice handy?  You can make a ton of meals with either one of those items. You should also try and buy a 10 lb. bag of chicken wings/thighs. With these ingrediants and flour and sugar, you have a ton of meals you can make. 

Quoting coala:

Since we are sick and I don't have much to cook or have the energy to go to the store.  I defrosted red beans and rice that I froze a few weeks ago.  It was good, but I am now out of things for tomorrow.

 Lol ! You're welcome.  I just know how it is when it looks like you have nothing with which to work with and get any positive results.  Oh I couldn't begin to tell you how much knowledge I am privy to on that end. lol  But, I also know, you do what you have to do to make it happen.  So, you do not need to feel guilty about your  store bought frozen meals. Plain and simple. :)

So is the belgian meat more lean then?  How's the price comparison?

Quoting mem82:

It's all in the meat. Americans tend to be a little on the fatty side and Belgians are more salty.

Quoting kirbymom:

What is the difference between American beef stew abd Belgian beef stew?  :)

Quoting No_Difference:

 I baked the chicken made stuffing & mixed vegtables & gravy.

Quoting kirbymom:

Okay. So what did you decide to make?  

Quoting usmom3:

 Something with chicken thighs. Still searching for a recipe that everyone will at least try.

Sorry, I made a bad joke. I have no idea what the difference is between the two.

Yay! Stuffing! Was it plain or did you make a certain type of stuffing?
