Lately I haven’t been getting home from work until late, and I’m starving. What I eat doesn’t matter as long as it fills me up quickly. Luckliy, I don’t have a tendency to pick something up because I’m too cheap.
However, this has left me to alternate between cereal, pb&j (both of which I have already eaten for breakfast and lunch), or pasta. This is boring and not healthy. I had a brilliant idea. I will cook a casserole or big supper on Sunday night and eat off of it for the rest of the week. That way I won’t have to wait on cook time. Now, I just have to find something that I can enjoy for five nights and is somewhat healthy.
Week 1: Poppy seed chicken casserole
I used the recipe from Mama’s Junior Service League Cookbook, my fav cookbook. One of our old family friends from TX called me the other day to look up a recipe in this cookbook because she was on vacation. I think everyone loves it. I got my grandma’s copy of it, and my sisters love theirs too.
Now, boiled chicken grosses me out. I don’t know why. I’m sure I eat it more than I know. If I ever eat it at your house, please don’t tell me. I’m sure I won’t be able to taste the difference, but really, boiling chicken just sounds disgusting. So Mama had a great idea of buying a rotisserie chicken and cutting that up. So I did.
It’s Wednesday and still tasting good! Hopefully I’ll keep this up because it is nice to have a good supper. Casseroles are tricky because they all are creamy (like this one) and have mayonnaise or mushrooms, both of which I do not like. I need some suggestions!
