I need help!

I am so tired of cooking the same boring meals all the time. It seems like I have about 5 different things that I cook quite frequently. I need to mix it up a bit. Also, I am going back to school at the end of the month and the first several weeks (or more) are so exhausting I know I am not going to want to cook very elaborate meals. So, I am enlisting your help. I am looking for 1)healthy, 2)easy, and 3)tasty meals. Dave is a little picky--no beans (pinto type), no broccoli, spinach, or unusual veggies, please, and not too spicy. I would really like ideas of casserole type dishes that can be frozen. I REALLY appreciate any and all ideas. If you want to give me your 10 faves, that is great. If you only have one to share, that is great, also.

Since I am requesting recipes I guess I will give you one that I have recently come up with. It is kind of an adaptation of a Rachael Ray recipe and oh, so delicious and easy!! Preheat oven to 400. Start with new potatoes. Cut them in half and sprinkle them with extra virgin olive oil. (I do this in a mixing bowl) Make sure they are completely covered then put them on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle them with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix around, on the cookie sheet, with your hands making sure all sides are seasoned. When I am finished I make sure all the cut sides are facing the cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. So easy and so good!

I can't wait to read your delicious recipe ideas!!

You need to change your "About Me" or profile description...whatever it's called. You and Dave have now been married 6 years!

I have a couple of recipes I'm going to email you. I'll get them together tonight (if I remember) and email them tomorrow.

I found your blog-so fun!

tator tot casserole

1 can evaporated milk
1 cup grated cheese(cheddar or colby jack)
1 can cream of chicken
1 can cream of mushroom
about half bag of frozen tator tots
1 pound ground beef or turkey

brown meat and put in 11 x 13 dish, layer with tator tots. In a bowl, mix soups, milk and cheese. Pour the mixture over the tator tots and meat. If you freeze, thaw completely and bake at 350 for 50ish minutes or so. You can add corn to the soup mixture if you want. yum yum

Unless it is Hamburger Helper, RiceARoni or PastaRoni, I don't cook it these days. Theresa's neighbor (I'm at her house all the time) is a FABULOUS cook. I'll get some ideas from her...
