We eat Tacos a ton everyone likes them. I also make Taco soup, I put hamburger or chicken in a few cans of tomatoes, a can or a bag for frozen corn, sometimes rotel, taco seasoning, kidney beans, a package of ranch dry seasoning. Then we top it with fritos, sour cream, and cheese!

My family of 8 loves chicken and dumplings. I make it in a great big pot and it isn't very expensive. I let a few pieces of chicken cook until it is nearly falling off the bone in a pot of salted water. I add a few cubes of chicken boulion (sorry I can't spell) to the water to add to the chicken stock. Then make the dumplings. 1 egg, 5 Tbls real butter, 2 cups of flour, 2 tsp salt and 1/2 cup of milk is the basic recipe, I double it if I'm serving something with it or I quadruple it if that is the meal. You mix it all together (I use my hands,but a stand mixer would be much easier), roll it out and cut into pieces. I drop the pieces into my chicken stock as I get them cut, they float as they begin to cook. After the last of my dough is in the pot, I let it cook a few minutes and then it's done. Very tasty.

We also like chicken enchalada's. You just cook chicken strips with fajita seasoning, add some onions and peppers (we use a frozen blend from Save a Lot). Stuff flour tortillas with the mix and add some Mexican blend cheese, roll and place in a baking dish. Top with green enchalada sauce (cheap at Walmart) and bake till cheese melts. Serve over rice.

Quoting Deb:

My 6 favorites were stuffed hot dogs, cook hot dogs, stuff with instant potatoes, and top with a quarter of american sliced cheese. Bake in oven (350) until cheese is melted. Also chicken spagehtti, goulash, ground hamburger cooked in skillet, then add 2 or 2 cans cream corn and peas, or ranch style beans. One pot meal that they all liked. One thing I never did was cook one thing special for a child that refused to eat. They either ate supper, breakfast, lunch, or they went hungry till the next meal. No child every died of hunger when skipping one meal... If I think of more, I will let you know



thanks deb!

I just bought the "Big City Slider Station" and have made mini burgers for my family of 7 and as long as everybody agrees to the ingrideints it is good. just get 2 or 4 pounds of ground beef (i got buy one package get one free this week) and even if they dont agree you can adjust recipes(included in box) to each's liking. One pound makes about 14, and each can eat 3 or 4 with fries/salad as a meal.
