Monday I made chicken enchilada casserole. I've had the recipe for years, way before I was online. We've always liked it, but I have to be in the mood to cook everything. Brian's mom had never had it (it's been a while since I made it and remember, when I can, I cook enough to send some over to her since she lives alone and it's hard to cook decently for one) and she was thrilled.
Tuesday I made Bisquick chicken and dumplings casserole. I really liked this, it will be in my rotation. The veggie was peas. Next time I think I'll try adding the vegetables on top of the meat and make it more like a big pot pie.
Friday I made beef strogonoff. I don't have a recipe for this, I just cube a roast (I used to use round steak, but our local CostCo doesn't have that out in their meat section anymore), brown the meat, add a water to cover the meat, add diced onions and plenty of paprika. I cook until the meat is tender, then add some McCormick's beef gravy to a jar of water, shake it up real good, then dump it in the pan, add some dried parsley and let it cook down (heat low an cover pan). When the meat is fork tender (I don't like chewy meat) I add sour cream to taste and serve it over noodles. We've found some great tasting noodles, made out of whole wheat. I served this with salad.
Tonight we had tacos and tostados, like I mentioned earlier.
