I think we eat a little different than you with children. I keep things pretty simple and fast. But here is a look at last weeks table events:
-Dinner at Ashley's with BAKED SALMON, spiced potato chunks, fruit salad...delicious
-ROTISSERIE CHICKEN (purchased), green salad, watermelon,
-BBQ SHREDDED BEEF (cook roast in crock till very tender, add BBQ sauce recipe in family book) on buns with veg tray and baked chips and apples
-CHICKEN SALAD (use canned chicken or grilled chicken pieces, grapes, slivered almonds, celery, miracle whip), cantaloupe rings, bread & jam
-ENCHILADAS (recipe in family book) with lettuce and tomatoes, chips and salsa
-El BAJIOS GREEN CHILI CHICKEN SALAD
-Don't forget a little bite of chocolate after each meal for dessert or if visitors will eat it all so you don't have leftovers, be sure to try the ALMOND JOY CAKE in the family book.
-we also love a little fruit...APPLE SALAD (chopped apples, chopped nuts, raisins opt, yogurt)
CHOCOLATE FONDUE OR DIP (great with strawberries, bananas, pineapple, apples)
1-6oz Hershey Chocolate Almond bar 1/3 c whipping cream
1 Tbsp milk 1 Tbsp margarine/ butter
1 c mini marshmallows
cook in double boiler so won't burn, till melted and blended. Serve warm.
