Mealtime Monday/Tip Saving Tuesday

I hate holidays on a Monday. I bet teachers hate it more. Sugar crazed kids, deprived of sleep, send 'em to school in a freezing blizzard. They don't get paid enough.

So the holiday threw me a curve ball, and I was having so much fun with my kids (seriously) that I haven't had a minute to post, until now.

Meals for this week include

Meatloaf and German Potatoes

Stuffing Meatballs
   These are like an early Thanksgiving.
  1 bag (8 ounces) herb seasoned stuffing cubes
  1 cup hot water
  1 egg or egg white 
  1 tablespoon ground sage
  1 pound ground turkey breast
  1 can (16 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce; I like it whole berries, but either works
   1/4 cup sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing, water, egg white, and sage; mix well. Add the ground turkey; mix well. Roll into 1-inch balls and place the meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet that has been coated with nonstick spray. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked through, turning halfway through the baking.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce and sugar over low heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar melts. Place in a bowl and serve with the meatballs.
    Makes about 4 dozen meatballs
Chicken Pot Pie (even though J-Dog hates it)

2 Pie pastry shells
1-14.5 oz. can chicken broth
2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1 bags frozen peas and carrots
4 medium red potatoes, diced
1/2 cup diced onion
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup flour
salt, pepper, and Lawry’s seasoning salt to taste.

In a deep dish frying pan, saute chicken and onion in olive oil.  Add potatoes, carrots, peas, and broth to pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Mix water and flour together, add to pan; simmer all ingredients about 5 minutes, until thick.

Pour ingredients into pie shell; cut out shape in top of second pie shell- this will allow for steam to escape as pie cooks.Place second pie shell on top and pinch top and bottom edges together. Bake for 35-40 minutes @ 400 degrees.

Italian Chicken and grilled veggies
Marinade chicken breasts in Italian dressing for 1 hour. Grill
