I ask him what he wants and he says I dunno. So tonight he is getting I dunno for dinner :) I'm just tired of the same crap everyday. I need some new ideas!

    How did you bake the chicken?

    I'm thinking of sloppy joes. I use this Rachael Ray recipe and usually substitute turkey for beef. It's awesome!!

    OMG - I'm totally cooking 'I dunno' for dinner tonight!!!! LMAO!!! Baked chicken is so easy. I season the chicken on the bone with whatever I have (garlic, paprika, onion, adobo) preheat the oven at 515 (yup 515 degrees), when it borns I turn it (around 15 minutes) then 20 minutes later I turn it again & then again after 20 more minutes its done, nice & rispy & totally juicy!!! Yummy!

    BTW my DH complains that I make the same thing all the time yet he too never has a suggestion...uuughhh men!!!

    Ohh I do have an great vegetable lasagna if anyone is interested!

    Tonight we are having left overs from last night, I made pork green chile for smothered burritos. I also made the pinto beans and tortillas from scratch.

    Tomorrow night I am doing shrimp stir fry, and later this week roasted pork loin in the crock pot.

    Saturday I made garlic lime chicken. One night I had left over limes, so I made my own marinade and it's supper yummy. Just squeeze a lime or two over some chicken, chop up some garlic, pour enough olive oil over the top to coat the chicken and roll it around (I put it all in a zip lock bag). Let it marinade for 30 minutes or so and grill it up and put cilantro over the top. Delish.

    Anyway, we have leftover chicken, so we are having chicken ceasar salad.

    Oh, also, I made that pork carnitas recipie from the 365 crockpot blog. OHHHH, was that good and EASY. I just took a 2 lb pork roast, rubbed salt and cumin over the roast, squeeze a large orange, 2 limes, 1/2 c beef broth and 7 cloves a garlic. Cook on low 8-10 hours. Then shred with a fork. Good night was that good. Tastes even better today. I just put the shredded pork on a taco shell with some guac, sour cream, cooked onions, corn and cilantro. It was good. So tender Dane even ate some!

    That baked chicken sounds good. I can never make good chicken in the oven. Maybe I'll try it tonight. We only have the boneless frozen breasts(ick) but it will do, right?!

    Thanks! It is if I do say so myself. It's my most requested dish by family and friends. That and my couscous.

    I love that chicken because it's SO easy, it's cheap and you can use it for so many things. You can it as a main course, chicken tacos, chicken burritos, enchiladas, leftovers in a salad, or make chicken salad sammiches, etc!

    Just a tip, if the limes are really hard, nuke them in the microwave for 8 or so seconds and roll them on the counter, you will be amazed at what comes out.
