Her’s what’s on tap:
- Korean Meatballs — from Cooking light, if you like Korean bbq flavors, this one does them nicely in a mealball flavor. Everyone likes these, and we have them with pickled cucumbers — and bountiful baskets gave us a bunch of those last time)
- Burritos — hamburger, refried beans, and some of that pre-done burrito packet mix from the seasoning isle, throw it in a tortilla with some cheese, microwave for like 5 minutes.
- Pesto Chicken Pizza — I just mix a can of Costco chicken with 2 or 3 heaping tablespoons of pre-prepared pesto, and then I do about 4 T of it on the crust and smooth it all out, add the chicken top with cheese and pinenuts and basil, if I have it on hand… sometimes tomatoes too…
- Lady’s Cheesey Mac (I usually make Chuck’s mac and cheese, but I don’t have any cottage cheese)– homemade mac and cheese. If you want the recipe, email me. I’ll make the full recipe of this, but I will freeze 1/2 of it for another day and put it with a big salad. Yum.
So, my begging for help is family friendly meals that are easy to prepare. Drew is only one home one night this week, and I need to make stuff that my kids will enjoy that get on with a minimal fuss. So, do you have standbys that you go to? I think we may be doing some breakfasts for dinner, and things like that. I know there’s lots of ideas, but lately I’m just out of them. And Drew won’t be home til’ around Thanksgiving (much).
Have a great week!
