What have you done?

Although my nickname at Thatboy's office is Superwife, I definitely have my lazy days. Those days where I stay in my pajamas all day and never leave the couch. Those days where the thought of coming up with a creative dinner just seems like work. Unfortunately "frozen dinners" in Thathouse consist of frozen chicken breasts, frozen ground meat, and frozen soups. That's when meals get very lazy. I start thinking "what makes up a dinner? A protein, a veggie, and a starch. I know, I'll just throw them all together, and cover them with cheese!" Don't all start applauding just yet, this kind of genius takes years of practice.

Chicken and Potato Casserole
  • 1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 6 red potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Arrange potato in baking dish, place layer of chicken on top, and layer of red onion.
  2. Mix together cheese and milk in small bowl and pour over layerers. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 40 minutes.

  1. Very nice. Cheese make everything good. Have a happy new year!

  2. Not even on my most "industrious" day could I pull off your "lazy" meal.

  3. Yum! I love potato anything, but this looks great!

  4. It has been a pleasure to get to know you over the past year That Girl. Have a safe, healthy and happy New Year. See 'ya in 2009!!

  5. Your lazy day meals still trump my frozen pizza in the oven. :)

  6. I'm probably "lazy wife" to my husband's co-workers. Hee.

  7. i said similar words just tonight, during dinner: "my plated dinners are not complete without some kind of meat, a starch, and a vegetable. preferably with some kind of sauce or gravy."
