I made Cincinnati Chili. I did it in the slow cooker, but you could just do it on the stove, or make it for tomorrow!

Also, I found that roasting shrimp in the oven (toss with olive oil and salt and pepper) at 400* for a few minutes is really tasty. You can put it into pasta with pesto sauce for a really easy meal. Do you only eat red meat?

sometimes when I get bored of chicken I switch to make something vegetarian…it adds some variety!

the mister and I really liked these bean burritos, but I ended up making them in a bowl more or less. I’m terrible at getting wraps to stay put properly.


We also just ate this three bean chili and it was SO GOOD. I added some rice, but it was awesome without.

The site myrecipes.com has lots of really delicious and easy dinners. I hate cooking, but lately I’ve been getting Cooking Light magazine & going to MyRecipes and have made dinner 5 times this week!

Salmon okay?

Marinate salmon, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup olive oil, 3 dashes Tabasco, 1 teaspoon dill in the fridge for 2 hours, flipping halfway through,remove most of the liquid. Bake for 5 minutes on each side at 350 or until flakey… its absolutely amazingly simple and SO good.

Have you checked out recipezaar?  It has hundreds of thousands of recipes and you can sort so many different ways.  i like using the recipe sifter to enter a few random ingredients that I need to use and see what comes up…  To add variety to your meals, you could try menu planning.  Or have themed weeks… mexican week, indian week etc.  That way some things you need for some recipes but are too much for one meal, can be used in another similar themed meal.  No waste and yummy dinners!

maybe try out different ways of cooking your chicken or fish? We’re having seared ahi tuna tonight on salad.  I’m also a big slow cooker fan for future meals…

http://www.channel4.com/food/recipes/healthy/cook-yourself-thin/risotto-with-prawn-lemon-and-basil-recipe_p_1.html This is BEAUTIFUL, highly recommend it, it uses creme fraiche instead of cream so not as fattening, but it gets really creamy!!

And because it’s all in metric, I found this to help you should you decide to make it http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/cooking-conversions/gram-conversions.aspx

P.S I know it’s rice and fishy stuff, but honestly, it’s a lovely dish!

i made pasta carbonara for my grandparents and us last night and it was a huge hit!  Just make a basic salad and maybe some bread?

(and I used bowtie noodles, but you can basic use anything you want!)
