What We Have Been Eating

I haven't made a WWHBE post in forever!! The last one was almost a year ago! Things have been really crazy for us this year and I haven't had the time or state of mind to record many of our meals. On a good day I will remember and snap a couple shots but that is usually about as far as it goes. I have been trying to focus more on actual meal planning lately. In order to get the most out of my coupons, I match them with things that are on sale in the stores weekly add, but sometimes I just wish someone would say, "Here, you are making this for dinner, here is your grocery list, have a nice week." Funny enough, you can hire people to do this for you on the Internet at a site called emeals. Maybe something to think about. In the meantime, here is What We have been eating!

Quesadillas 3 Ways...I am a sucker for slapping something into a tortilla and calling it a day. I had some chicken and a lot of tortillas so I made 3 different kinds of quesadillas.

My Traditional Quesadilla

2 Flour Tortillas
Ortega Taco Sauce
 Chicken {I used Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Strips}
Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Place one tortilla into a skillet, top with sauce, then chicken, then the cheese. Place 2nd tortilla on top and cook on both side until tortillas a crisp and cheese melted.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadilla

2 Flour Tortillas
Ranch Dressing
Bacon { I like to use the bagged real bacon pieces}
Shredded Mozzarella and Cheddar cheese

Follow same assembly instructions as above.


2 Flour Tortillas
Pizza Sauce
mini peperoni's
mozzarella cheese

Follow same assembly instructions as above.

I put some of each sauce in little cups for dipping and BAM, dinner! Something for everyone.

Another winter favorite this year is a Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles recipe I stole from my sister in law.

What you need

Bag of boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 Stick of butter {and a couple pats for your veggies}
1 Can of cream of chicken soup
2 Boxes of chicken stock
1 Package of egg noodles {I use Reemes}

Place your bag of chicken {still frozen}, chicken stock, soup, and butter into your crock pot and turn on high. Cook until chicken falls apart on its own, then shred while still in crock pot.

Saute you chopped carrots and celery in butter until they start to soften. Add noodles and softened veggies back into the crock pot and add more stock. Continue cooking until noodles are done, adding more stock when needed.

What have you been eating? Go to crock pot meals? Interesting quesadillas?
