What Should I Make For Dinner Tonight?

Help! I need some new ideas....I am getting really sick of the old stand bys.

I want to make something healthy (but not too healthy), something easy and something fast. Chicken or beef dishes are best. Hubby doesn't like pork. Pasta ok, but not preferred. Veggies we like: He will eat onions, peppers, corn and potatoes and I like onions, peas, carrots, potatoes, corn and green beans. Rice is ok.

I am sort of in the mood for a beef dish.

Any suggestions? Very Happy

Hmm, ok here is a recipe that I used to use alot.

Boneless skinless chicken breast. 2
Rosemary
Cinnamon
Olive oil
Apple cider vinegar ( optional )
Season salt


Take the 2 pieces of chicken and put them in some tinfoil. Make sure you use enough so that it will hold the liquids also along with the chicken.
Fold the foil so that liquids wont spill out and add
2 tsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of vinegar,
Sprinkle 1 tsp season salt and 1 tsp rosemary over the top of chicken.
No measurements handy.. BUT.. i am guessing I used about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon sprinkled on top of the chicken also..

Close the tinfoil tight so no steam can escape. ( this is no easy accomplishment sometimes.. grrr )
Place it on a cookie sheet in the oven at 300 degrees for 3 hrs.
Slow cooked... yummy , moist chicken.

I call it my ' fkn chicken ' recipe.
hehe

Speed the chicken up,
400 degrees 1 1/2 hours.



Great dessert..
Organic plain yogurt with brown banannas and strawberries.
Heat the strawberries on a plate in the microwave and mash them with a fork, same with the bananna. ( brown banannas are sweeter.. )
Wait until they are cool and add them to your serving of yogurt..
YUM!

I made this last night. Even the kids gave it a thumbs up.

Smothered beef:

1 to 1.5 lbs cubed beef (I used round)
1 yellow onion
sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 TBS flour
2 TBS cooking oil (I used olive oil, vegetable oil is fine too)
1 can beef broth
1 clove chopped garlic (optional)

put the beef cubes in a bag and dump the flour in. close it up and shake the crap out of it, coating the beef with flour.

heat the oil in a large frying pan. Put the beef cubes in a single layer in the hot oil, browning each side (about 3 mins total). Do this in batches if you can't get them all in a single layer. Put the rest of the ingredients into the pan and let it simmer for about 30 mins. The gravy will 'smother' the beef.
Serve with mashed potatos and steamed veggies of choice (carrots are traditional). It's like beef stew only separate. The gravy and potatos are fabulous
