What's For Dinner?

5,101 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wifes away for the next month, so I keep thinks very simple. Chicken breasts, potatoes and vegetables!


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

Not sure yet...I have bonesless pork ribs in the freezer, some boneless chuck roast, chicken strips, and hamburger meat. Oh wait, I do have an idea....Cheeseburger Mac, kinda like the Hamburger Helper stuff but homemade. Ground beef, a box of mac n cheese, and a can of cream of mushroom. Yummy! Of course I usually add a bit of minced garlic to mine.

One of the things my husband loves is cornbread! I don't think he had ever had any before he met me, but he loves it now, especially the Jiffy kind...cause it has a sweet taste to it.

I make something similar but instead of cream of mushroom soup you add a can of diced Italian tomatoes.. and then you put it in a baking dish and sprinkle some grated cheese on top and bake it until the cheese is melted.... :thumbs:

my hubby likes it...

I love chicken. There's so much you can do with it. Never thought of wrapping it in a steak, though. ;)

Marilyn and Karen..... those cheeseburger mac casseroles sound good. Comfort food. I always love that on a cold day.

Hurray for cornbread! One of the many Southern dishes I like.

you don't actually wrap it in chicken :P I think it is where you put a shake and bake type coating on the steak....

yeah chicken is great... :thumbs: i will have to go through my recipe book later and find something to do with the chicken breasts...

I know we're having salmon, but I have no clue what else to have.

mmmmmm. With salmon I usually make one or more of the following:

  • asparagus (with or without bearnaise sauce)
  • grilled red, yellow, and green peppers (on the barbie but sometimes on the stove if I don't want to go outside)
  • homemade salsa: corn niblets (drained), grape tomatoes, sweet onion, fresh Italian parsley, fresh lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper. Sometimes I add black beans (drained and rinsed).
  • garlic or parmesan rice
