What’s for Dinner! (Or any meal! )
Sunday: Cheese Quesadillas We had a picnic at church so had a late light snack. These are quick and easy to make. Fillings can vary depending on whats in the fridg. ( Meat of any kind, cheeses, beans, veggies) The kids picked their own toppings. (usually lettuce, tomato, onion, salsa, sour cream, olives) Neat trick I learned years ago. Cut your quesadilla with a pizza cutter. Here is a site with ideas for your own Quesadilla treat. http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-0,quesadilla,FF.html If you have an electric fry pan or griddle you can cook them right at the table.
Monday: Sunday Chicken
This was supposed to be bbq chicken on the grill for Memorial Day. However it rained so went to plan B!
2 boxes Rice a Roni (or 2 cups rice of any kind, uncooked, and 1 package onion soup mix)
10 pieces of chicken with skin and bone (I use thighs)
1 can cream soup
1 can (soup) milk
1 can (soup) water
Salt and Pepper
Lightly oil the bottom of large deep rectangle casserole dish. Pour rice evenly in bottom of dish. Sprinkle seasoning mix on top of rice. Place chicken skin side up on top of rice.
Mix soup, milk and water well. Pour over chicken. Salt and Pepper.
Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350 for 1 ½ hours. Remove foil. Drain any grease that is sitting on top and allow to brown for 15 minutes uncovered.
We served this with green salad, asparagus, watermelon, green beans and biscuits. I always make two batches at a time. Saves on oven heat later in the week and we have another meal ready to go.
Tuesday: Grilled Steak ( was on sale after the holiday!)
Served with salad, zucchini, yellow squash, baked potato, strawberries and watermelon.
Made lots of food on Monday so will be reheating and eating whatever is left from Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
I made the easy no boil method. Just follow directions on the box. I used the left over spaghetti sauce I made ( and froze) a few weeks back.
Friday Parents went out to dinner to celebrate 29th Wedding Anniversary. Kids had pizza from Sam’s Club.
