What are you working mamas making for dinner?

Let's share ideas. I get home at 5 and DH leaves for work by 6:30. I have a crockpot but I never really use it because DH is picky.

Today I'm going to fry chicken that I marinated overnight for dinner.

what are you ladies making?

Enchiladas! If you have a crockpot you can cook a whole chicken on the weekend, then shred it up and use throughout the week. I use the chicken for lunch wraps, enchiladas, other casseroles.

Tomorrow is taco soup in the crock pot. Easy Peasy - even easier because I browned the meat tonight.

I frequently will do a large batch of BLSL chick breast in the crock pot (no seasonings) so that I have cooked chicken on hand for anything... quesadillas, salads, chicken salad, cold pasta salads etc.

Boo, DH picked up Burger King instead. So chicken wings will be tonight I guess. I'm disappointed he got fast food when I'm trying to lose weight. Men!

Sigh, I'm such a bad mom. Got home from work just in time to meet the school bus. Then DS tells me he forgot his homework at school so we had to run and get it and then run some errands. I ended up stopping at a convenience store and getting some fried chicken which we ate in the car. I told my kids we were having a "car picnic" . lol

The chicken was awesome and not all that expensive. lol

Going home over lunch to make some crock pot apricot chicken-Mmm Mmm. Just brown 6 chicken breasts in some butter, remove them and place in a crock pock, add a couple handfuls of apricots to the crockpot (the recipe says 12 but I like more), fry an onion in the pan you browned the chicken with butter, add a cup of chicken stock to the pan and stir up all those brown drippings, add the entire contents of the pan to the crock pot, season (salt and pepper), cook on low for 4-6 hrs. I served it with rice. DELICIOUS!!

Re: What are you working mamas making for dinner?

Tonight I'm going to steam a bunch of vegetables. I'll toss them with a little butter and parmesan, serve some tonight, save some for lunches /leftovers, and save some for soup on the weekend. I think we'll have some ravioli as well tonight.
