Recipe Kick

When its hot outside who wants to heat up the house and cook? Not me!! I also don't want to eat sandwiches for dinner every night either. So I have been trying to come up with some easy, fast, little cooking involved recipes. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any that you like. Here is what I have done the last couple of days...

**Salsa Verde pork chops and lemon rice.
I quite enjoyed it. The kids ate it really well and Ryan tolerated it. It was super easy and quick. I used thin cut pork chops and about a cup of bottled green Salsa Verde sauce. I also used instant rice to make the lemon rice. I had it on the table start to finish in about 15 minutes.
**Potato bowls.
I really like KFC potato bowls. So I created my own version. I used instant potatoes made in the microwave. Heated up corn (in the microwave), cooked a packet of brown gravy and added a can of chicken to it. I then shredded some cheese and WaLa dinner is served. Again dinner on the table in about 15 minutes.
**Hot Dogs
Nothing earth shattering there but easy and not a lot of cooking. There is also something about a grilled hot dog in the summer that is comforting.

Well there you have it. I am needing ideas so if you have any feel free to help me out with the ideas.

Two words: crock pot! I have made KFC bowls before and my kids love it. Not the healthiest but I know they will eat it and like you said you really don't have to cook anything.:)
