Happy to.
Gotta see those recipes.  Some I may actually try some day, but hubby is a bit picky, so only some will get tried.

Nothing Spicy and NO pineapple ( If i remember correctly) :)
That's part of it, plus his allergies.

I always make a massive tray of it , let it cool , then refrigerate it . Its so easy to portion once it has been in the fridge. I usually get 6-8 meals out of it to put in the freezer.

Ive been making it with ground chicken mince lately and it gives such a nice taste to it :)

Made a really easy salad last night.

Cook a chicken breast and put aside to cool.

In a big bowl layer the bottom with Rocket leaves (I think its also known as arugula? ) shave some fresh Parmesan, slice a pear  ( you could use apple too) and add them both to the rocket leaves.

Slice the chicken breast and add that to the salad ingredients.

Dressing is 1 tablespoon of olive oil and two of lemon or lime juice.

Drizzle over and serve :)

You can all sorts of things to this, I sometimes add roasted pumpkin or sweet potato and roasted walnuts/Pine nuts or cashews.

Apart from cooking the chicken ( which you could do the day before) it takes a matter of mins to throw this together  ;D

Those can sometimes be the best recipes when you have kids!  I know when my kids were growing up, once I got home they wanted to eat in 15 minutes!  Needless to say, there were lots of crock pot recipes in my house, and soups and stews!  But my kids also loved salads, thank goodness, so this would have been a great recipe to have back then!  Think I might try it for myself, too!

We had a simple chicken and pasta soup tonight: chicken legs (3) boiled with a bit of chopped onion and celery. Salt, pepper, minced garlic, basil and rosemary to season. When fork tender, I added about 1/2 cup frozen peas and about a cup of whole wheat spiral pasta. It was served, as is everything at my house, with warmed corn tortillas.

Tomorrow's dinner will be "I dunno" slow cooker pork neck bones. *teeheeheeheeheeee!!!*

"I dunno" slow cooker neckbones ended up being cooked, and eaten, at work for lunch yesterday. I added sauerkraut, small white skin on potatoes, caraway seed, salt and pepper. Rye bread and butter on the side. Our volunteers thought it was MUCH tastier than turkey leftovers they'd all brought. ;-)

There were two major accidents on my route home this evening. One of them completely closed my main road for quite a few hours....it took me 2 1/2 hours to travel what normally takes 40-45 minutes.

So when I picked my niece up from my husband's work, we came home to ham and cheese sandwiches on rye, the last little dab of chicken soup from Tuesday, and sliced mango. Filling, not heavy and FAST.

Last night I made chicken chow mien and have enough left for tonight's meal and a couple of serves for the freezer.

I also Made banana muffins and much to my joy and lack of baking skills - "They turned out" :)

Made some pork and onions with rice for myself.  I hardly ever cook just for me, but made enough for a couple of meals, and it was good.  This thread has got me thinking about cooking more often.  Usually I just buy something quick -- even microwave dinners, since it's only me.  But, it was actually fun!

I love cooking big meals for the family, and am really looking forward to the Christmas vacations with Rebekah coming home from Seattle for a week, and then Katy coming home from Texas for a week.  Unfortunately, they only cross on one day, but, just happy to see them at Christmas!
