jaxma that sounds really good!!

Thanks for sharing! Do you brown the chicken in the crockpot then add the ingredents instead of using the skillet?

I had SO wanted to make Corned Beef and Cabbage, but all of the recipe's I found use a pressure cooker, and I don't have one... I can't justify spending $100 on one either, because I don't know if I'd use it enough.

I'd love to hear if someone has a recipe!

PS-I'm so glad I came across this thread!!!

I don't bother with the green beer...but I like to make corned beef and cabbage and soda bread. But since tonight is the fish fry at my kids' school, we are going to have our St. Pat's meal tomorrow or Sunday instead. I know there are Irish folks who are taking advantage of the dispensation granted to eat meat on a Lenten Friday because of St. Patrick's day...but then I also know some Irish people who say that the rules shouldn't be changed just for them so they are making theirs tomorrow!

Last night we had the chicken breast recipe I posted here, the third post:

Do you have a family favorite chicken breast

No leftovers!

Shepards pie too. I have a really easy recipe for it. I think it says prep time is 30min but you can make it earlier in the day and just throw it in the oven at the right time. My problem is at 5pm I'm too tired to cook anything complicated! PM me if you would like the recipe. Do you have a slow cooker? I have some easy recipes for hamburger casserole type stuff.

Talking We're having free pizza tonight.

I got to be "pizza delivery girl" for my kids' school today. The 4th and 5th graders who made honor roll for the 4th six-weeks grading period were rewarded with a pizza party this afternoon. There were a few pizzas left over and the principal offered me one, so I agreed to take it off her hands.

Have you tried Chicken Poppy Seed Cassarole? It is delish!! Just parboil (boil til tender and cooked white) chicken breast and cut up bite size. Make some rice (I use 10 minute in a crunch, or long grain if I have the time). Put the Rice in the bottom of a buttered (or Pam sprayed) casserole dish. Put chicken on top of the rice. Mix one large can of Cream of Chicken soup with a container of sour cream and pour over chicken and rice. Crush one sleeve of Ritz crackers (crush right in the sleeve, no mess). Melt 1/2 stick of butter and mix in crackers with 2 TBSP poppy seeds. Spread over casserole and bake about 45 minutes or so on 350. (Until Bubbly)
Really good with a broccoli side. I tried adding broccoli to the casserole, but it gets too mushy in there, so I always serve it steamed as a side. This dish is a favorite with my whole family!

Good luck!

Jeanne-

That sounds realy good!!! I may just have to wait and make that for just me and my family.

I am thinking of making just the basic goulosh- if they don't like it they don't have to eat it. They are the ones who invited themselves, right?

This is one of my favorite casseroles:

Chicken Tetrazinni

8 oz spaghetti or vermicelli, broken in half, cooked
2 to 3 cups cooked chicken
1 tsp. butter
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup chicken broth
1 envelope spaghetti sauce seasoning mix
1 can (4 oz) sliced mushrooms with liquid
Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Put the butter, the evaporated milk, and the chicken broth in a saucepan, whisk in the seasoning mix and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 5 minutes, add chicken and mushrooms.

Mix cooked spaghetti and sauce, put into a greased casserole dish. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake for 20 minutes.

This is one of my DH's favorites and it is easy to double. It tastes great with some crusty bread and a salad.

Jan-- I make my tetrazinni almost the same way. I don't use the spaghetti sauce mix. I'll have to try that the next time I make this.

My family loves this! I usually make the casserole without the rice on the bottom. My kids don't care for rice. I make noodles that my one daughter will eat. The other just eats the creamy chicken. Oh, not good, I'm getting hungry.

This was one of the dishes I'd take to new moms when I was in MOPS and it always got raves! Depending on the seasoning mix you use, it may be slightly pink in color (look for mixes without dried tomato powder to avoid that). One time I made it for a woman whose husband was of Italian ancestry, so I made sure to undercook the pasta before it went into the casserole...Italians hate mushy pasta. He even commented to his wife that it wasn't mushy, though he used the Italian word for it...I was relieved, LOL!

One thing I like about it is that you can easily make it low fat by using evap skim milk, low fat chicken broth and just leave out the butter...it doesn't really seem to affect the flavor that much.

Thanks Jan for the info about the tomato cont. I have to go grocery shopping. DH's family ate us out of house and home.

No more pop, juice, chips, or ICE CREAM- they ate my ice cream. Dirty scoundrals. I love his family, but sometimes they are TOO MUCH!! Just like any family right.

DH is feeling a little better after his surgery- he looks likes a chipmunk on one side of his face I takes him about 1/2 an hour to eat mac and cheese. Him and DS have a great time at the table.

Keep the ideas commin' everyone. EVERYONE appreciates them not just me.

It's the start of a new week.

How many of you make a menu for the whole week/ month?

Let's see who has the best menu!

Nope. I'm a cook by the seat of your pants kinda gal. I often don't shop for more than three meals at a time, since there is a good butcher shop plus a small supermarket very close to my house. I also don't like to freeze too many cuts of meat because a) I think that freezing alters the texture of some meats for the worse, particularly chicken on the bone, and b) I'm really, really lousy at remembering to defrost meat the day before.

I'm getting close to breakin' out and trying something new. I've been making too much of the same ole, same ole for a couple of months.

OK I admit I do and make the menu based on what I have and what's on sale in the weekly flyer. The menu is posted to the fridge along with what activies we have going on each day.

I started doing this when I was in WW and had to plan what to eat. It isn't always followed, but it's a good guide.

Today was supposed to be Market Day Tilapia, but DH is hankering for a beef roast. I had an eye round in the freezer (sorry, Jan) and will be home early enough today to put the roast in the oven, peel/cook potatoes while it's roasting. Add a salad and veg and it's dinner!

Hey, beef is one thing I *will* freeze! And it can be started in the oven partially frozen, so I usually can get away with not completely defrosting it, LOL!

Tonight, I have no idea what we are eating, but last night was YUMMY!

I made meatloaf with ground venision, but because that can be pretty bland, I mixed in half a pound of pork sausage and all kinds of yummies...onion, garlic, herbs, salt, pepper and italian bread crumbs.

Then, we had smashed potatoes with sour cream, milk, butter, salt, pepper and cheese with green beans and homemdade corn bread! It was sooo good!

I do make a menu for the week, because that is how I make my grocery list. I do them at the same time and figure out what activities we are doing for the week and plan meals accordingly.

I am also getting sick of making the same old, same old and am trying to come up with some new stuff that we would all enjoy. I know allrecipes.com is a good resource...any others??

Okay, this is something I'm going to make this week, mostly because I almost always have ground beef in the freezer and it's easy to defrost! I made this once before quite a while ago, loved it (so did DH), stuck the recipe in a notebook and totally forgot about it:

Mini Meatloaves in Tomato Sauce

2 slices firm white bread
1/4 cup milk
1 pound ground veal or ground turkey (I used ground beef)
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1 large egg
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. olive oil
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes
1 package (10 oz.) frozen peas
3 tbsp. heavy or whipping cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves (I used 2 tbsp. dried)

1. In medium bowl, soak bread in milk 5 minutes; mash with fork. Stir in veal, Parmesan, salt, pepper, egg, and half of the minced garlic until well blended. With hands, shape veal mixture into eight 1/2 inch thick patties.
2. In a nonstick 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until hot. Add patties and cook 4 minutes or until browned on both sides, turning once. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining minced garlic to skillet, and cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes with their juice and frozen peas; cover skillet and cook 10 minutes or until patties are cooked through. Gently stir in cream and cook, uncovered, 2 minutes. Sprinkle with basil to serve (if you are using dried, you add the basil to the skillet with the tomatoes).

I got this out of Good Housekeeping (back when they didn't have a bunch of designer food in their mags.
