Did someone say football? I will admit I picked my college not based on academics but based on the size and breadth of the stadium. I walked into Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, and I felt like I had gone to heaven. I live, eat, and breathe football sometimes I lose my breath while watching football. You guys, It’s true! And I’ve come to accept and embrace that I would rather watch football than anything else when it comes to fall. That means I do a lot of sitting because let’s face it the only thing I run is my mouth. I can, however, catch pretty well since my kids throw everything at me that they can.
I tell you all of this because if I am sitting in front of the TV on the weekend, I need to make sure I am eating healthy. That is why I love these Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches and stadium veggie cups I make for our family tailgating party. They are easy to make, tastes great, and are easy to feed a crowd. I assume you could use this same basic recipe for any lunch meat, but the ham has the best flavor. I just love these Healthy Tailgating Recipes.
Are you often running out of ideas on what to serve your family for dinner? My family loves to try different recipes, and they easily get bored when I make the same meal, that’s why I decided to plan our meals. With menu planning, I save money, and there’s a lot of new healthy and delicious dinners that I can serve my family every day.
Dang! It is 4:45. Those people are looking at me again. They are staring at me. They are saying something that resembles English but I can’t be sure since it is being spoken at an octave that I never want to hear again. They keep repeating the same phrase over and over again and each time I try to force it out of my mind as I answer the last email. I need an easy dinner recipe and I need one yesterday.
They are “hungry.” They are so “hungry”.
I mean they haven’t eaten in at least two hours and the world may collapse like a southern bell in the heat.
What is a mom to do? What is a dad to do? How do we stop the madness and get dinner going?
So I pull out my list of these Easy Dinner Recipes
Then I go through my cabinet and pull out what I have and match it one of these amazingly easy, healthy, and gluten-free recipes.
Are you looking for ways to eat more fish and need family friendly ideas? Well look no further because this one is a crowd pleaser for both young and old. The sweet, savory sauce in this Baked Maple Bourbon Salmon Recipe is something that will appeal to kids and adults who normally wouldn’t eat fish. It only takes 30 minutes and is a great way to get your Omega 3’s! Bonus: it is only 6 Weight Watchers Points per serving. Try it and let us know what you think!
I get a lot of magazines. The one magazine that I love is Family Circle. I got this super Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder recipe that I wanted to share with you.
Here is what I would change. I would use frozen corn. It was difficult to get the corn off the cob when the kids were starving. Our son can’t eat seafood so I took some out of the crockpot for him and his sister before I added the crab. The other thing I would change is I would hide the leftovers from my husband. This soup was yummy!!!! I hope you enjoy. It cost about $16 but it made two complete meals and a lunch. I could have made it cheaper but I bought the larger can of crab (located in the fresh fish section of your grocery store) instead of the amount the recipe called for.

Do you have an item that you never eat at home but always order when dining out if it is available on the menu? Something delicious that you love but just don’t want to put forth the effort to make it at home? Maybe it is something that can only be done right by your favorite restaurant. For me that item is steakhouse potato soup. I absolutely love thick hearty chunky potato soup but I can’t quite seem to make it as good as my favorite restaurants and certainly can’t get it on the table quickly. Until now.
