What's For DINNER Tonight?

Recommended Posts

What is on your menu for dinner tonight? :)

 

Tonight, our dinner is a recipe based on one that I got right here on LB from" dixie_belle " :yes

 

What I did, based on her recipe...

 

Chicken & Stuffing Casserole:

  • 1 large boneless / skinless chicken breast or thighs, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1.5 cups of broccoli florets (or other veggie that you like)
  • 1 can Creamy soup (your choice)
  • 1/4 cup cooking sherry
  • 8oz cheese (swiss for us -- use what your like)
  • 2 tbs minced onion
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine broccoli or your other choice of veggie, minced onion (if you like it!), condensed canned soup (cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, cheddar cheese or whatever you prefer), and raw chicken breast or thighs that you have cut into bit size pieces
  2. Pour the above into a casserole dish that you have sprayed with cooking spray (ie,Pam)
  3. Top this mixture with your choice of cheese
  4. Prepare "Stove Top" or other stuffing mix as per the package, then spoon this over your mixture that you toped with cheese
  5. Back approximately 1hr on 350
  6. ENJOY

We're eating this with peas and carrots and apple sauce (I used unsweetened apple sauce +splenda + equal + cinnamon + a dash of salt) on the side. Feel like I could eat it now :eat

 

 

SOOOOO... what do you plan to fix and enjoy for tonight's dinner???

I'm going to make stuffed chicken breasts :yes

 

Stuffing:

Fresh baby spinach - steamed & chopped

Fresh lemon juice

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

Pine nuts, chopped

Fat free feta cheese

Mrs. Dash's original blend seasoning

Fresh ground pepper.

 

Mix stuffing together, set aside. Season outside of chicken breast with Mrs. Dash's and fresh ground pepper. Make an opening in the chicken breast for the stuffing (cut about 2/3 through), then stuff with spinach stuffing. Cook 350 for about 30-45 minutes.

 

Healthy, low calorie, low sodium and YUMMY!

My mom usually makes a big meal (including a meat [beef/ham/chicken/venison], two sides [usually mashed potatoes and corn or green beans], buns/bread, and sometimes dessert) Or she'll make soup/pasta with garlic bread etc. We have a big family so she makes alot. Usual slow cooker meals and she makes supper like this every week day besides friday, and for dinner/lunch on sunday. She's sick right now though, so tonight we're havin pizza! ;)

I made meatball bake, found the recipe on food.com http://www.food.com/recipe/meatball-bake-272671 I also made a huge batch of meatballs for the first time, and its the best tasting hamburger I've eaten in awhile; they were great plain right out of the oven. I froze half of them for later.

I harvested a bunch of tomatoes from my garden so I am having my preacher and his wife over for meatballs and spaghetti (made from scratch by yours truly). I decided to use ground turkey instead of ground beef because it's a tad better for us and they'll probably never notice. I skinned the tomatoes and then I've been stewing them down since 10:00 this morning. I added the cooked meatballs about an hour ago so they'll be really flavorable by 5:00. And I'll have some garlic bread with it and some home made blueberry coffee cake for dessert.

 

The house smells soooooo good. They better be plenty hungry because I made a lot. (I wanted to use all the tomatoes because a bunch more are getting ripe.)

Today, I'm going to put in a version of a cola pot roast with lots of Vidalia onions. Making some egg noodles and peas & carrots to go with it. I wish I had it ready NOW! Hungry enough to eat it even though it's early morning (got up at 1am, urgh...) :eat

Well this one will be a first for me. I have zuccinni, yellow squash and tomatoes coming out of my ears I'm always looking for a new recipt. So tonight I'm fixing Romen noodles chicken flavor, with chopped veggies added. We'll see how it tastes. Really could go without all the salt, but whatever it sounds easy and quick.
