What's for Dinner

Do you ever feel like there are only about four things that you prepare for dinner?
Do you ever stare at your frozen chicken breasts and hamburger meat (ground beef) and sigh?

Well...I do.

So I made a list of the homemade things my family will eat.

Chili, Potato soup, Chicken a la King, Hamburgers, Bacon and Eggs, Meatloaf, BBQ Pork, Beef Stew, Spaghetti, Lasagna, Turkey, Shredded Beef (Carm's style), Chicken in the crock pot, Lemon Pepper Chicken, Pizza and Cod nuggets.

Dear husband will not eat a few of these things so he gets a hamburger or cod nuggets on the nights I cook fancy i.e. Chili :o)

My list is going on the fridge.

I think it will help when I am drawing a blank!

Donna's Simple Chili

1 lb. ground beef
1 can Brooks Chili Hot Beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 T. chili powder
1 t. cumin

Brown beef. Add the rest of the ingredients.
Simmer. Serve with a slice of cheese on top.

This recipe only makes enough for 4 1/2 bowls around here. So double or triple as needed :o)

"We thought for years that if there's such a thing as a national American dish, it isn't apple pie, it's chili con carne.... In one form or another, chili in America knows no regional boundaries. North, South, East, and West, almost every man, woman, and child has a favorite recipe." --Craig Claiborne

Encourage one another...and have a bowl of chili :o)
