Ok - so, is the controversy over? Can we go back to being Mommies now? Oh, wait, that’s one job you can never quit. Sorry (shakes head), I forgot that for a second.
Anyhooo, this is a post to ask all you mommies out there one simple question: What’s for dinner?
That’s right. I want your dinners, because it’s very clear to me that I lack life skills, and dinner seems to be one of them, and so I want to steal yours. So please post up one (or two? Dare to dream!) of your favorite dinners.
Here are the rules:
1-It must be a main dish. (We can do side dishes/salads/desserts later if y’all want to, but for now, let’s keep it simple)
2-It must be fairly easy to make. (Again, with my lack of life skills….)
3-It must be something your kids will actually eat. I don’t want recipes for fancy meals that are totally yummo, but require me to make a box of mac and cheese for the kids. (Again, we can do that later if requested.)
OK, I’ll start us out. We call this one: Not Just the Same Old Chicken
Chicken (breasts or thighs will do)
One bottle of Russian dressing
One package of onion soup mix
Jar of Apricot/Pineapple Jam (I like to use about 1/2 the jar, but if you like really sweet, go ahead and use the whole jar)
Dump all of it into the crock pot, cook on low for 3-4 hours, or until chicken is falling apart. (If you use the crock pot, you don’t even have to thaw the chicken first - bonus!) Or, if you prefer, mix all ingredients together, place in a 9×13 pan, bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. (depending on your oven).
That’s it! It goes really well with pasta, (the extra sauce is great on noodles) or
it’s also really great on baked potatoes. If you’re going low-carb, well, then, I don’t know what to tell you. Serve it with steak.
So, there you have it. Me blatantly turning this blog into a recipe site, just for now. I just am really tired of recycling the old meals over and over, and I am coming from a house where my husband makes most of the meals! But when it’s my turn, well, let’s just say my repertoire is very limited, and I could really use some help. So….HELP. Plus, I can’t really be the only one out there who needs help with dinner, now, can I?
Oh, one more semi-rule. Should you choose to post a link to a website with recipes, please point to one (or two) recipes that you make on a regular basis and really like. Not just, “Hey, I googled recipes, and this one looks good.” I want real meals that real moms actually make. Thank you.
