Dinner and a...work?

Out in blogland, Chookyblue has a blog entry on dinner. I want to go to her house for dinner! She would have to share the mushrooms though!

I started thinking about the meals that have graced our table over the years. There have been so many meals. If you think about the meals at your table what kind of memories do they evoke?

When my kids were in high school, my dh was retired from his job, I was in college during the week and fulfilling my military obligation on 1 weekend a month...dh was the chief cook. The kids began whining about the same old stuff. Since they were on the verge of a strike...mom stepped in. So, each of the kids were assigned dinner night. I can't remember if they came up with this recipe but it did prove to be a staple at the table.

When I cut chickens up at home I save the thigh portions and refreeze them until I get 4-6 of them. I can also find chicken tenders in the chicken aisle. Little pieces of white chicken meat in @ 1/2 pound package. Cut the bone out and cut the meat into smaller pieces. Place the meat into an electric frying pan. Add 1 cup salsa, 1 can whole kernel corn with the juice too, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder. Stir well and cook over high heat until chicken is done. Turn the pan off, add 1-2 cups instant rice, stir well, top with 1-2 shredded cheddar cheese. Put the lid on, set the table and 5 mins later....dinner!

If you try this, let me know. Enjoy, go quilt something, Elaine
