What We Ate: Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake, Homemade Fish Sticks, Hot Pork Sandwiches, Stuffed Corn & Black Bean Quesadillas

Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake Ok, I loooooove refrigerated bake-and-serve biscuits. If I had to pick 5 foods to eat all the time? They'd be on the list. I rarely buy them, though, because 1. I can't be trusted around them and, alternately, 2. I don't like them anywhere near as well as leftovers. Fresh from the oven only. One thing I don't eat is … [Read more...]

(Photos: food.com, budgetbytes.com, canyoustayfordinner.com) Beer Bread Beer bread + dip = Super Bowl, baby.

What We Ate: Simple Chicken and Rice, From Scratch Lasagna, Green Chile Pork Tacos

Simple Chicken and Rice I tried to hack my way around this one. I wanted to use brown rice, which it says not to do so you don't overcook the chicken. To compensate, I used whole, frozen chicken breasts instead of thawed bite-sized pieces. It almost worked. The brown rice was a bit on the chewy side. I think I needed more liquid.

What We Ate: Spaghetti with Butternut Leek Parmesan Sauce, Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Funeral Sandwiches

Spaghetti with Creamy Butternut Leek Parmesan Sauce I almost scrapped this one. I was at the store, reaching for a butternut squash, and thought 'why? It's such a PIA to cook! And you don't even like it that much!' (I find it too sweet for a main dish.) But...I really like leeks. And it was on the meal plan. And I just wanted out of the … [Read more...]
