Quick Dinners and a New Way to Snack

A variation of Chicken and Waffles. I believe this is a bit more along Southern style lines with the breaded chicken. I think it’s usually fried chicken. I’m not an expert. What I’ve come to know as Chicken and Waffles in Pennsylvania is shredded chicken in gravy over mashed potatoes on top of a waffle. I heated the chicken in the oven while making waffles one at a time on our waffle griddle, and made instant mashed potatoes on the stove, while heating jar gravy. Next time I’ll make chicken gravy to put on top.

I have also started playing some kind of game with the girls after school while having a snack. The tv and video/tablet time turns them into rotten, nasty people, so I’m trying to keep it all out of the equation. Charades seems to be the favorite, but we pulled Clue out the other day, which was nice because we haven’t played it in a while. We all seem to be in a better mood after some quality time together. And we love our Cheez-its and grapes.

I cannot remember if I shared this one yet or not, but I absolutely love black bean burgers and Morning Star makes a really good one. I like it with provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and yellow mustard. I like the slight crisp on the outside while it’s all soft on the inside. These burgers go especially well with sweet potato tots and some frozen corn on the cob we had hanging around.

    LOL

    But, you’re right. Games of imagination and sharing are much better than the brain killing tv.
