Recipe Suggestions

In reference to my post below I need suggestions...

What do you make at your house for dinner? Something that takes less than an hour (preferably half and hour) and will feed 3 people. We get home at about 5:30 - 5:45 and the latest I can usually hold Zack off from eating is 6:30. Especially because depending on what kind of day he has had sometimes he is in bed at 7:00.

Here's what to keep in mind... I am the PICKIEST person on the planet.

Ok... go....

Put a pork loin in the crock pot on low with two cans of cream of celery/mushroom/chicken, and a can of coke. (You may want to use half a can).
Cook on low all day and it will be ready when you get home. Make sure your crock pot doesn’t cook fast or it could be well done when you get home. 
The can of coke pulls the fat out of the pork loin….it is very yummy!

Crock pot cooking may be the way to go for you as you have very little time to prepare food and when you make crock pot food you usually have a ton left over which would be good for your lunches.

Take some chicken breast and cut them up into one – two inch strips. Grease a shallow dish (9x13 or so) and put them in the bottom of the dish. Cover them in Wishbone Italian dressing, bake uncovered for 45 minutes on 350. Sometimes I bake mine covered because it doesn’t dry the chicken out as much but you may not have time to do that.

Take chicken breasts, dip them in egg and roll them in the durkee dried onions or in your case crushed croutons. Bake them in a greased dish on 350 until done. Uncovered will make them crispier, just watch them as you may have to rotate them or flip them over.

Put chicken in the crock pot covered in BBQ sauce…when the chicken is about ten minutes from being done sprinkle bacos (you can use real bacon if you want) and cheese on them. How long you cook them depends on how fast you want them done. You can’t cook them all day on low or you will BBQ chicken soup. But you can cook them on low for 3 hours, high for an hour+ or in the oven on 350 for about 45-60 minutes. That is actually a weight watchers recipe.

Want more? :) - LOL

Have I convinced you that eating healthy can be yummy too? No? Well let me keep going….. :)

Your mom is a great cook I am sure she would have a ton of suggestions for you especially since she knows what you like and don't like.

I can't remember if you like pot roast or not but if you do. In the morning, take a large pan, put a little oil in it and turn the stove on high. When the oil is hot, sear each side of a thawed roast for a couple of seconds. Take off stove. In your crock pot on low, you can add onions, carrots, potatoes, any veggies. Place something on the bottom of the crock pot, place roast on the veggies, and the rest of the veggies around roast. Pour on top- salt/pepper, 1/2 pkg of french onion soup mix, 1/4 cup tomato juice, then add water to the crock pot just enough to get close to the top of the roast. Keep on low all day. When you get home, it will absolutely fall off the bone, much better then a roast in the oven. The tomato juice makes it tender.

My family loves this chicken recipe!

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 c. mayo

1/4 c. parmesan cheese

Mix the mayo and parm cheese, and put on chicken in 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with bread crumbs (I use crushed ritz crackers). Bake for 20 minutes or until at 425 degrees.

This is a really healthy meal. Please keep an open mind and try it just once. I'm extremely picky as well, so picky I bought the turkey probably close to half a dozen times and let it go bad so I had to throw it away before I actually tried it. Now I love it!

Buy 1 pound ground turkey. Mix in 1 whole egg and about 10 crushed up saltine crackers. Season with lawry's seasoning, salt, and pepper. Patty it into 4 burgers (you can do all that before work, just separate with wax paper when you put it in the fridge). The best way to cook them is a George Forman grill or a regular grill. Serve without buns, just a tiny bit of ketchup and some corn or green beans or veggie on the side. Seriously, I can't get enough of it and it's a great work out meal, protein and veggies!

OK well I started making RIBS in the crock pot and they are so EASY and I know you would love them. You take a rack of pork ribs, rub seasoning salt and pepper on them, broil each side until starting to turn brown. Then you cut them up into sections of like three ribs and throw them in the pot! Pour a half a bottle of your fav. BBQ sauce on them and let them sit all day! When you get home turn them down or off. You can either eat them right out of the crock pot or you can place them on a cookie sheet...put on some more BBQ sauce, and broil them for another 10 minutes to get it carmalized. They will be so tender they will just fall off the bone! SO GOOD!! I have some more to share with you but I will do that when I get home...TOMORROW!! Yay!! Can't wait to see you guys! LOVE YA! Molly

I love this polka kielbasa recipe...

One Polka Kielbasa (I use the turkey one, but whichever)
Red potatoes
2-3 cans french cut green beans.

Place all of it in a crockpot on low before you go to work. (Don't drain the beans! Burnt crockpot is not tasty.) Done when you get home. Season to taste. (I do that because I dislike salt and Hubby loves it.)

Did you all survive the storms last night? Hope so!
