Weekday Meal Help

First, recap on yesterday. So much for our lazy Sunday! We ended up going out for wings and trivia at Buffalo Wild Wings then met up with a friend downtown and stayed out until almost 11. Needless to say, we are all exhausted today! I think my busy weekend caught up with me this morning. I am now at home in my comfy clothes and ready to chill on the couch until bedtime.

You girls were great about sending me pineapple casserole recipes (THANK YOU! I haven't had a chance to write any of you back, but they sound yummy!) and now I need help with another cooking issue. Michael doesn't get home until at least 7:30 during the week and we need some ideas for quick and easy weekday dinners. Feel free to leave it in the comments or email them to me. I am just tired of trying to fix a big meal so late, so help a sister out and share your favorite dinner ideas!

Hope everyone is having a good start to the week!

One word. Tacos. LOL! We do crunchy tacos on lazy dinner days. OOO, or you could go to Casa Rolls!

Chicken Enchiladas

2 boiled chicken breasts chopped (or one canned chicken breast)
1 - 8 ounce cream cheese
1 can of rotel
6 flour tortillas

on stove top melt cream cheese and rotel together, once creamy add chicken. Scoop into flour tortillas. Place in baking dish cover with shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, just long enough to melt the shredded cheese. Very good, and very simple.

We also do taco salad on fast nights, or put something in the crock-pot all day while you are working. It is then ready to eat whenever you want it.

Hope that helps some, now I will be checking back to steal some other peoples recipes. Everyone can always use a quick cooking recipe.

Cook beef and seasoning until brown. Stir in rice and water, cover and heat on med for approx. 8 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff rice, drizzle salsa over mixture, and top with cheese. Cover for 5 min until cheese melts. Serve over tostitos. Super easy and only one dirty pan!
