I'm reading through the threads about meal planning and I know this is what I need to do. I like how so many of you have a long list of things you like to make on a regular bases. I really need to expand my list.

Can we start a thread with recipes that we like to cook for our families on a regular bases? I'd love to try new things out so my list can get longer.

I particularly like meals that do double duty- like something that you know you will end up with leftovers from, and then a secoond dish that uses the leftovers.

Roasted chicken and vegetables and then chicken salad sandwiches or chicken pot pie or chicken soup

or hot turkey sandwiches and then shepherd's pie topped with the leftover mashes potatos


pasta
soups
falafel
paella
pot pies, or shepherd's pie
sandwiches
pasty type meal in a pastry things

Here is some of the meals I fix, let me know if you would be interested in any!

Chicken:
Mexican Chicken and Rice
Chicken Enchiladas
Southwest Chicken and Chickpea Soup
Chicken Parmesan
Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie
Beef:
Southwest Lasagna
Mexican Lasagna(made w/tortillas)
Lasagna
Meatloaf
Taco Soup

Vegetarian:
Egg Rolls
Manicotti
Bean Burritos or Bean Casserole
Veggie Lasagna


I mostly try to do one dish meals, as I suck at side dishes and dh won't hardly eat them anyway. So, I try to get veggies in the dish or serve a salad on the side- dh is a veggie hater, although now loves cabbage as I started making egg rolls. I don't make anything too exotic, but I feel that we eat pretty well.

This is one of my favorite recipes...it's really fast and easy and I keep everything I need for it in the pantry.
Pasta Puttanesca
3 garlic cloves minced
1 lb. spaghetti
2 tbs. olive oil
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tin anchovies (approx. 2 tbs.)
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes, reserve juice
3 tbs. capers
1/2 cup kalamata olives
1/4 fresh parsley
Mix garlic with 1 tablespoon water, set aside. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, heat oil in large saute pan over medium heat; add garlic mixture, pepper flakes & anchovies, cook 2-3 minutes or until anchovies melt. Add drained tomatoes and allow to simmer 8 minutes, until thickened. Toss drained pasta in 1/2 cup reserved juice, capers and olives; pour in large serving dish. Top pasta with thickened tomato sauce, parsley and grated parmesan cheese.
Don't be afraid to use the anchovies, they add a rich flavor to the sauce that makes it taste like it took more than 15 minutes to make.

Can whoever posted about Paella share some recipies and toppings with us? I LOVE paella when I have it in resturants, but haven't come up with any great 'make it at home' recipies.

I've got a pot pie recipe, that we like pretty well.

1 c. sliced carrots, celery, and onion
2. c. frozen peas
4 boneless chicken breasts cooked(altough I just usually pick the bones of a chicken or use just 1 or 2 breasts)
5T flour
2 1/2 c. chicken broth
2/3 c. milk
1/2 t. salt
dash pepper.

Steam carrots and celery for 5 min. in steamer, or saucepan with a small amt. of water. Add peas and onions and continue steaming for 10-12 min. until carrots are tender.

In large saucepan melt butter over med. heat, remove from heat, then add flour, whisk until smooth. Add chicken broth and milk and continue stirring over high heat until the mixture comes to boil. Cook for a few minutes until thickened, then reduce heat to low. Cut chicken into pieces and add to salt with salt and peppper. Add veiggies and simmer for 4-5 minutes.

I just throw this in a casserole dish(9 in round) and make a homemade biscuit topping. Or you could use canned biscuits, or premade pie crusts, or homemade pie crusts. I can give you a biscuit recipe if you need, I use one from LLL cookbook.

Bake at 350 until your crusts is golden brown.

* I usually just use canned vegetables to save time
