So Proud of Myself..

Normally when My Husband works nights, I don't really eat dinner. I snack, or just throw something in the microwave... or just go out to a fast food place.. 

But the last couple nights I been actually cooking myself a real meal!! Last night was BBQ Chicken and corn... and Tonight Italian Chicken with a cold pasta dish..

So proud that I'm actually eating something that I made..  Instead of reheating, or eating out.. LOL

 

Lets hope I keep this up for this next month while Hubby is away for training!!

 

Now I just need more chicken recipes to keep me going.. hmm... Suggestions??

Re: So Proud of Myself..

  • do you not eat red meat? j/w.

     I can't really ATM bc LO doesn't much care for it and will send it back up lol.Do you eat turkey? If you do, turkey burgers, turkey lasagna, etc.. are really tasty, and if you make a full dish, then you have more to reheat later. We bake chicken quite a bit with various spices/marinades. Google is great for that kind of thing. Also, chicken stir fry and chicken fajitas!

  • I do the same thing you do when my husband isn't home... i'm lazy lol. I make a lemon and pepper chicken, cut it up, and stuff it in a pita bread with lettuce.

  • I am currently looking for my chicken quesidilla recipe for another bumpie...when I find it I'll pass it along...mmmmmmmm
  • Easy and you can save some for later:

    Shredded chicken

    1c shredded cheese

    1c salsa

    Heat them all up together. Flatten out some biscuit dough (like the Pillsbury ones, but dont use the flaky kind) and spoon some of the mix in the middle, then crimp the edges shut. Bake for however long the dough directions say. Homemade hot pockets!  

     Or Pizza Chicken

    Cook some boneless skinless breasts in a skillet til its cooked on both sides, then spoon some spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese on the top, cover and wait til the cheese is melted. Yum!

    My hubby gets home after 9 tonight too...I'm going to order dominos either around 7 and have leftovers for tomorrow at work or have it delivered right when he should get home and eat together...not sure yet

  • Good for you!  I'm not much of a cook.  When DH deployed when I was about 20 weeks pregnant, I stopped cooking. . . no, wait, I stopped cooking when I got pregnant. Oops! (I never felt good while pregnant.)  So, from my vantage point, I am proud of you too!  It is important to eat well while pregnant!
