This Week in the FishKitchen

Over the last couple weeks, the grocery store sales have enabled me not only to stock up on some great bargains, but also to experiment a little in the cooking department. Some dinners were homeruns, others, like my jambalaya which was delicious, did not go over well with the younger set. I’ve got a handful of picky eaters, and that’s gotta stop — someday.

In the meantime, I’ll plug along, hoping that they’ll like some of my new concoctions.

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:
Hamburgers, Fruit Salad, French Fries
Lasagna, Green Salad, Garlic Bread
Beans and Rice with Toppings
Shredded Chicken Soft Tacos*, Beans and Rice, Green Salad
Chimichangas, Fruit Salad
Pasta with Homemade Red Sauce, Green Salad, Corn Muffins
Pizza, Salad

What do you got cooking this week?

  1. Your whole menu sounds good! We like chimichangas, too. I used to crisp them in the oven, but now use the skillet or grill pan. Either way, it's a step up from regular burritos.

  2. "One," yes one boiled, baked, or grilled boneless skinless chicken breast, when shredded can make:
    Two homemade chicken pot pies
    Enough chicken salad for 4 large chicken salad sandwhiches on croisants
    A small casserole of chicken and rice
    Many chicken, cheese , jalepeno casa dias.
    A small pot of chicken, noodle, vegetable soup.
    A large pan of lemon , chicken fettuccini
    5 to 6 large skinless chicken breasts = a weeks + worth of delicious meals.
    Total cost for chicken and ingredients about $25.00,
    though I can usually do better than that with sales and coupons!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
