Hello again friends!
I must admit that I can fall into a dinner menu routine (or should I say rut?) where it seems my family is eating the same meals week over week. It’s not a bad thing…especially if you have picky kids or limited time to get dinner on the table. I find recipes in magazines or on the internet and am a little hesitant to try them. Maybe it’s because I have tried so many recipes that just didn’t come together well. Maybe it’s because they take much longer to make than expected. Maybe they have weird ingredients that I have to go out and buy.
Today, I am sharing with you some of my go-to meals that I’ve discovered over the years. I am only giving recipes that I have tried and work well for those busy days when Chick-fil-A is calling my name. I hope you’ll find them as life-saving as I have!
Let’s begin with a Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner from Lauren’s Latest.
I couldn’t believe how delicious this meal was with such simple ingredients and seasoning! I made my first sheet pan dinner with sausages, potatoes and onions. Kids can dip the potatoes in ketchup. I used Duke’s horseradish dip for mine. Broccolini is a great vegetable to add in, too.
If you’re going to make the Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner, be sure you try Lauren’s Famous Butter Rice with it. This is one of the best rice recipes I’ve ever made.
Need some true comfort food? Try Trisha Yearwood’s Chicken Pie!
Another simple recipe that brings such wonderful flavor! The crisp buttery crust on top covers a moist and delicious pile of chicken goodness.
This flavor is the real deal! I discovered this wonderful Asian Pork Tenderloin with Ginger Glaze from Karen at The Food Charlatan over the spring and have made it tons of times…and it is always delicious.
I will sometimes make the rub and sauce to use on baked chicken. The sauce is tasty enough to eat from a bowl, not that I have any experience doing that. What’s so great is that you make it in the slow cooker during the day and just add sauce to broil in the oven for a few minutes before serving.
Here are my Chicken Chimichangas! These yummy chimichangas are baked in the oven so you can mix ’em, wrap ’em and let them bake. If you’re really short on time, a rotisserie chicken would work well in place of the cooked chicken.
This last recipe that I am sharing is a diet killer but it is ooohhhh, so gooood! When I made Sunny’s Meaty Cheesy Casserole Sliders, my family loved them. These make great party or game day meals—but a weeknight with these on the table would really make your family feel special.
Are you hungry yet? (I am!)
All of these have my personal stamp of approval and if I can’t mess them up, you should be good.
That’s all I have for today! Thank you so much for visiting Mulch and Paint today!
