Back by popular request…

Okay, so only my sister said she liked it.  But that is also one of the only times she has mentioned this blog, so I figured I would do it for her.  Love ya, sis!

I love pinterest for finding recipes.  Especially easy ones.

Here is what I have made lately:

Chicken Caprese Sandwiches!  This is from the lovely, Iowa Girl Eats.  The only thing I did different was marinade the chicken in Sun-Dried Tomato dressing to give it a tad more flavor.  It was yummy.

Next was Grilled Peanut Butter Chicken.  I thought this was just ok.  Not great.  However, HJ ate it all up.  And even leftovers the next day.  I figure that when I want to grill chicken, I will make this one for HJ and make mine however I want it (HJ tends to not like my flavors…).  Guess that makes it a keeper!

This meal was definitely the winner.  Crock-pot Ranch Pork Chops.  This was seriously one of the easiest meals to make.  I have spent more time on mac and cheese.  All I had to do was throw in pork chops (mine were frozen), 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and a packet of dry ranch dressing.  Next time I will also throw in some potatoes and carrots.  I served it over brown rice and steamed veggies…yum…the pork chops just fell apart….I already bought the stuff to make it again.

Taco Bake.  I figured if it had a bag of Doritos crunched on top, it had to be healthy, I mean, good.  I actually made this for a friend who had a baby and brought it over to her, but I also made myself one at the same time.  I made it the day before so I could pop it in the oven when I got home from work.  Next time, I will freeze half, because although it was yummy, 4 days later when we were still eating it, I was over it.  Also, you know how taco pizza left overs just aren’t the same?  It is the same with the chips on this.

Okay, this is not a meal at all.  It is weed killer.  Don’t eat it.  Our backyard has been taken over by weeds.  Maybe the weeds were just too much for the weed killer to handle, but they didn’t die.  I few have turned slightly brown, but they are still taking over the yard.

Anyone have easy recipe recommendations?


Budget Overview:  I still have $20 left for the week after running all my errands!  Bonus: daycare is closed this week, so I am saving $150 on that!  Does that $150 go to credit card debt or savings?

    Credit Card! Plug away little by little. And…I’m gonna have to try the pork chop recipe! AND…that is a really great MK bag. 😉

  2. They all sound delicious! I would put $100 to credit card and $50 in savings. Ps, your last post has me watching what I spend!

    pay off credit card debt first, it has a higher interest rate than what you will get in a savings account.

  4. mmm yum I like this post continue sharing…I love finding new recipes! I also second what Brian said above pay off debt first! I think it usually works out better because the interest rates are so high. Once debt is payed off than you can put away.

  5. Anything with Doritos in it is awesome in my book! YUM!

    Btw – happy to have found your blog. I’m a single mom by choice, pregnant and in my 2nd trimester. Looking forward to reading more from you!
