I have a taste for homemade mac and cheese, so that's what we are having. I may make some sausage links on the side and steam some broccoli as well. As for the rest of the week, I have no clue.

I made Dorito Salad last night it was good and easy.

1 lb hamburger
1 medium onion : cook together
1 can Bush's Baked beans with medium sauce, add sauce and all, let cool

add and mix together
1 head of lettuce
3 tomatoes
1 bag taco or cheddar cheese
1/2 jar Catalina salad dressing or however much you want
1 bag of Doritos, crush in the bag
You can add sour cream if you want.

This made a large amount, my family really enjoyed it.

Just got back from out of town and feeling uninspired! I put some frozen chicken in the crockpot, seasoned it with garlic powder, Italian seasoning and Lawrys and dumped a jar of spaghetti sauce on top. Later I'll boil noodles and serve it with shredded mozzarella on top and salad.

Tonight it's chicken stir fry- chicken breasts with peppers, onions, and a drizzle of peanut sauce.

For the rest of the week, the possibilities are:
broiled fish with salad
pulled pork bbq in the crock
fancy grilled cheese with fruit salad
dinner out on Friday- don't know where yet

Fresh green beans cooked in the crock with a chunk of ham for flavor. One of my favorite summer meals. I might toss in a couple potatoes later, but time will tell. Looking at the time, that might not happen!

I'm confused. Nothing wrong with cookies for dinner but I am confused by the "no bake" and "hot from the pan" part....

Claire - no bake cookies are cooked in a pan and spooned out warm into a cookie sheet to cool and eat. One of our favorite cookies that now I wish I hadn't thought too much about....

Roasted vegetables and chicken
Old 07-08-2014, 04:39 PM

Easiest meal ever. Clean out all of the fresh vegetables in the fridge (carrots, onions, celery, broccoli, red &green peppers here tonight) and cut up into large chunks. Cut up a couple of potatoes into chunks. Drizzle with olive oil and seasonings --pepper, a tiny bit of salt, Italian seasoning. Spread in a large baking dish. Drizzle chicken thighs with a tiny bit of oil and the same seasonings; lay on top of vegetables. Roast all for around 45 minutes to an hour at 400 degrees until done.

i make this as a salad and serve baguette bread with it. When I first made it, I did the chicken breast thing...now I buy chicken for stir fry and marinate it overnight in Ken's Balsamic Vinegar dressing. We LOVE this... so refreshing!
