Recipes Please...

Oh, Crud. I have to think of a post for today too.... This NaBloPoMo thing is harder than it sounds. And, I have no idea what is stands for...
Anyway, I am going to take an idea from Claire. Whenever someone asks for a new dinner idea, I give them these super easy recipes. I make them a lot. Two come from the Dinner On Hand Cookbook I got from my mother-in-law and the 3rd is from Jaley's Aunt when my roommates and I stayed with her for Jaley's wedding. They are all easy and pretty quick dinners. The best kind!

One Pot Rice Dinner
2-4 Chicken breast cut up or 1 can tuna
1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 can water
2 cups Minute white rice
handful of chopped broccoli or frozen peas
Cook Meat in oil in a large nonstick skillet for about 10 min.
Add liquid and rice, Bring to a boil.
Stir in vegetables, cover and let stand 5 min. top with cheese if desired.
(can also be made with any frozen veggies)

Hash Brown Dinner
1/2 -1 package frozen hash browns
shredded cheese
1-2 Chicken breasts cut up or 1 lb ground beef
veggies, corn, onions, peppers, carrots, pretty much anything you want
Salsa, BBQ sauce, pizza sauce or tomato sauce
Cook meat.
In a 13x9 inch baking dish, mix hash browns and a handful of cheese.
Layer with 1 cup each of cooked meat, sliced veggies, and sauce. Sprinkle with more cheese.
Bake at 4oo degrees for 30 minutes.
(I usually do 1 cup per person of ingredients and add water to get enough salsa, or BBQ sauce)

Tater Tot Casserole
1 lb Ground beef
2 cans green beans
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 package frozen tater tots
Cook meat.
In a 13x9 inch baking dish mix meat, green beans and soup.
Cover with a single layer of tater tots.
Cook as directed on the tater tot package. (Usually 350 degrees for 30 min.) Can sprinkle with cheese before serving if desired.

I hope these make sense. There aren't set amounts of ingredients. Let me know if you try it and it doesn't work. Enjoy!

NaBloPoMo = National Blogging Post Month, or something like that. :) I'm glad you're doing it! Hang in there!

These look good! And it reminds me that I need to take chicken out of the freezer for dinner! oops!
