It's now been two weeks since New Year's - and just enough time has passed for resolutions to lose their charm and the dull colors of winter to make me tired. This is when I lose all motivation in the kitchen to put any effort into a new recipe. Time for the 'tried and true' - recipes that taste nice & hearty, yet don't require too much effort (or a complicated grocery list).
These are meals my family never complained about. When they walked in the door, they could recognize the smell and know what would be waiting on the table. Sometimes knowing what was in the oven made finishing their homework a little more bearable.
I'm sure you all have a "tried & true" file. Here are just a few in mine.
(Yes, they are loaded with carbs, tomatoes, pasta, cheese, etc... just the thing for the January Blahs)
|Nacho Mac 'n Cheese|
|Unrolled Chicken Cordon Bleu Bake|
|From-Your-Pantry Taco Soup|
|Salsa Chicken (in the crockpot)|
|Food Storage Fluke|
|Bloomin' Onion Bread - goes with anything...|
