I know. I’m in the middle of the 30 days stuff, but I’m stuck on the one I’m supposed to be writing. I haven’t posted much of anything in over a week, and part of me feels like I just don’t have much to say right now. I feel…..like words aren’t cutting it these days.
But, I thought, I have some great readers out there, many of whom have become friends, and why not propose a little sharing among friends?
So here’s the deal. I am not the cook in this house. FAR from it. My wife is the chef. She’s the one who can make something from the nothing I see in the refrigerator. I grew up on steak and potatoes and my mom NEVER taught me how to cook. Ever. If I can make it in the microwave, I’m on it. But anything beyond that and I’m all thumbs.
On top of that, the kids are super picky these days, and with H working nights, it is such a waste making something that the kids won’t even eat. So we have been doing a lot of spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, etc… Often H will put something in the crockpot in the morning and all I have to do is make sides. That’s easy.
So, here’s the thought. Share a recipe, any kind of recipe. The only requirement is that it doesn’t require the skills of an Iron Chef in order to prepare it. Other than that, share away. They don’t even have to be original. Just something you like that works in your house.
The one I have is SO easy. I did a baked chicken recipe using ranch dressing and bread crumbs.
1/2 cup ranch dressing
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Coat the chicken breasts in the ranch dressing, then coat them with the breadcrumbs.
Bake at 400 on a cookie sheet until done, about 25 minutes (I just use a meat thermometer).
