Chicken Skillet

This is what I was going after.. I did buy the plain diced potatoes cause the family don't like the peppers.

Simple and easy..my style. Chicken, Bacon {precooked- the only way to go in my world, Love this stuff..I don't care how much it cost} Diced Hash Browns and cheese.. I browned chicken thenthrew in the hash browns while the chicken sat and watched for a moment. I added my special spices which I don't even know what's in anymore and some onion flakes. Top with cheese and let it melt. I think next time I might throw it in the oven and brown the cheese a bit..

But let me say.. this was awesome. I was warm, comfy, and just a feel good meal. It would be great for brunch. I think I may add some chives or green onion next time to spice it up a bit but it was gooood... I am going the freeze the leftovers for another day. I will have to make this on a cold winter day.. Oh, I think I need another bite..just a small one.

I have another recipe coming..it was awesome too.. stay tuned. I am on a roll tonight. Maybe this will make up for last night since I didn't cook.

Sloppy Joes

The other night I was wanting Manwich Sloppy Joes so I made them but I did something a little different that I found over at Jane's. They were good, I had left overs so I froze them. Which I might just go grab one for a quick 2pm breakfast.. Yes, 2 pm is my morning. 10pm is my lunch and 4am is my dinner.. Welcome to my world. I don't remember what cheese I put on them.. I have tons of cheese in my fridge all the time, so I just grabbed one.. maybe a colby...I don't know. I may try this with an egg, cheese maybe some ham or bacon mix..I might cut the biscuits up first. I'll let ya know. I had broccoli in the frig and I needed to do something with it so I make cheese Rice a Roni and added broccoli.. I froze that too. The kids will eat it when they come up from school.

Ya know while my pictures uploaded I did grab one of these out of the freezer.. let me say, it's better the second time around.. oh, yummo. I am so hungry when I wake up I almost can't see straight til I get something in my stomach. These are easy, pop in the wave for a minute and cute little snack - does a body good.

I am not a leftover person. I throw so much stuff away cause I just can't bring myself to eat leftovers. Now somethings are better the next day but usually I am grossed out...or within the 2...3..4 day I don't want that same gourmet meal again... Did ya catch the gourmet part..? yeah right. Anyways, I have started freezing left overs and with the stuffed peppers I even made more to freeze for after school snacks or a loner meal.. Which is tonight, I am home alone tonight and I wanted peppers. Now when was it that I made them, a few weeks ago? If I would have left them in the fridge I would have dumped them over the fence to the critters a week ago but instead I froze them and tonight I had a nice gourmet stuffed pepper meal without the work...which I love the most. They actually taste the same or even better then the day I made them and I didn't have to pay 3.59 to buy the Stouffers version. Yeah me.. So here's my questions-

Do you freeze food?
What kind of food do you freeze?
And any tips?

Love to hear from you, Cathy

Oh my, when I hit publish my recipe for stuffed peppers came up. It was August 25th.. Almost, almost a month ago.. I didn't realize it had been that long. I do think I will have stuffed peppers in the freezer all the time.. Little monster ate some last night too... it's a good thing.

Oh,, nevermind.. when I looked at the pictures again I said,, that's not when I made them. I did make them on August 25th and we ate them and froze them and ate them. I just recently made the big batch but I don't know what day it was on.. We keep this up and we may be sick of stuffed peppers by Halloween.
