What's On Your Plate This Week?

Just so ya’ll don’t start to think that I haven’t been cooking since I'm a world traveler lately….here’s my food update:

Sunday: (yes, the day after we got back from vacation!) we had this chicken casserole, which I’m sure everyone here has made before. It’s the easiest dish to throw together and you have a lot of leeway on what you put in it.

I used: White rice, Cream of Mushroom soup (with garlic), carrots, peas (andrew picked out every single one and made discouraging remarks about each one he found), asparagus, green beans, and chicken breasts (boneless and skinless of course – cause that makes it less cannabilistic for me). Just throw it all in a pan – add water for the rice, and cover and throw in the hot oven for a bit. I think I typically cook most things at 350, I’m not sure why. I know my oven has other temperatures it can get to, but for some reason, 90% of the time the oven is used, it is heated to 350.
Monday: Pizza snacks. Fast and easy, love them. Used fresh onions, I like them!

Tuesday: Andrew had to work – so he had pizza snacks, I had mussamun curry, which I bought on the way home (YES, I know it is really easy to make).

Wednesday: Sloppy joes and fries for Andrew. I just had a few fries and a bowl of cereal. It was my work from home day and I snacked much too much to need to eat dinner!

Thursday: Chicken stir fry – with the extra veggies from Sunday: asparagus, carrots, peas (andrew begged me not to use, but then he was being a brat so I added some anyway cause if he’s making me miserable, why should I not add peas to make me happy?? I like peas!), green beans. I added mushrooms per request, but I’m not sure they did anything for it.

Friday: Is usually serve yourself night. Andrew is going out….with a girl….ugh.

I need new dishes to try....I'm going to look into this. Exciting, I know!!!

Oh---and I have a contest coming up....anyone want to go to the movies - FREE??? Sunday a contest starts for four free movie tickets!!!

    I've got lots of recipes, easy ones! Ask me! Also, I don't really enjoy like a bowl of peas but I like them with things mixed in, but as a kid (meaning till I was 24) I wouldn't eat them. He'll grow out of it.

    My older daughter does the same thing when I put vegetables into something. She acts as if I am trying to kill her with whatever I have added. Thank you for sharing your menu. I love looking at what other people eat. It always gives me new ideas for things to cook.
