Girlie - Do you have a recipe for the skillet teriyaki chicken? That sounds good! And I'm jealous of your desert every night! LOL I'd gain 50 pounds if I did that.
I'm making my meal plan up today so I should be able to post later.

I'm not quite sure what I'm doing for the week, but tonight we're having baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon, fresh stone-ground whole wheat bread with ricotta, basil and tomatoes and a salad.

I'll post the rest later!

Nicole - Thanks for the encouragement! I don't know that we'll ever get around to cooking everything from scratch (both DP and I WOH full time), but I'm proud of the bit of progress I've made already .

Wife&Mommy- The Skillet Chicken Teryaki is from Hillbilly Housewife! I tried it and it was quite good! I threw in some frozen (steamed) stir-fry veggies, and Yum! The recipe is here.

Also, on dessert...we don't have dessert every night...right now the kids aren't home, and I keep it on there so that on the days we decide to have a little dessert, I have options. When the kids are home, they usually do have dessert every day, but we try to limit it to 2 cookies and a small glass of milk, or a very small piece of cake, or something. This is down from dessert once after lunch and once after dinner! What was I thinking? Now they can have a snack btwn lunch and dinner, but its typically fruit, yogurt, or a granola bar. So no, we don't necessarily fix all those every night .

This is the easiest recipe ever. So much that I am ashamed.

Boil a chicken. Take the chicken out and debone it. Freeze about half the chicken for another recipe. Bring the broth up to a boil. Drop in frozen dumplings . Cook until done. Add back the half of the chicken. Eat. Yum.

No, but seriously, these frozen dumplings are the best. My family eats dumplings that are flat, almost like noodles. In fact, I've been to places in the midwest, where they call the same thing noodles. My aunt makes the best ones--they are rolled out, they dry all afternoon, then you cut them into strips before they are boiled. Even she, in the last few years, has gone to the frozen ones. They are next to the frozen biscuits, and they cost like $1.50. Can't beat it to save 3-4 hours of work.

Sorry, I just saw this.

Crock Pot Herbed Veggies is super simple, I don't really have a recipe. I just cut up some potatoes, carrots, onions, whatever I have and drop it in the crock pot. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the veggies, top with some herbs- I like marjoram, thyme, parsley and a little bit of salt. Stir to coat veggies. Set crock pot on high if dinner is in a couple hours, low if I'm on the ball and get it together earlier in the day.

I don't really have a recipe for corn muffins either- I just eye-ball it. Roughly equal amounts WW flour and corn meal, a small amount of sugar or honey, a pinch of salt, two pinches of baking powder, an egg and some milk.... I'm sure you could find a good recipe on allrecipes.com or similar. During the summer, I make large batches of muffins when it's cool and freeze them- that way I'm not heating up the house when it's hot.
