Have you just about had it with all of the end of the school year stuff? Three weeks and counting and I’m about over it. When the punks were younger and in the lower grades, I always got a little bit weepy on the last day of school — another year over, another one down, everyone’s getting older, yadda yadda yadda. Not anymore. The older they get, the more intense their workloads. The projects. The tests. The papers and quizzes and sports and performances — good gravy please just … LET. IT. END!
I know I’m not unique or alone in this crazy boat, so I went digging for a few simple and quick recipes to carry us all through these busy weeks. As usual, they’re kid friendly and mom approved. : )
I have it on good authority that readers of this blog are super big into chicken recipes, so here are two awesome ways to make great use of the sale Smart Chicken Organic Legs and Thighs. I promise no one will even be able to guess that either one is a Weight Watchers recipe.
Honey Ginger Chicken Skewers use the sale Smart Chicken thighs; they need to spend at least three hours in an awesome (yet easy) marinade, so just keep that in mind. Once that part is over, the recipe finishes in a skinny minute. I usually serve the skewers over plain white rice with an easy steamed vegetable. Quick, yummy and perfect for a weeknight.
Chinese Chicken Legs are another kid friendly dinner that make great use of the aforementioned sale Smart Chicken Legs. They’re basted with a dressed up purchased barbecue sauce and then roasted in the oven for a fast and simple supper. There are three brands of barbecue sauce on sale this week: Organicville Brand, Stubbs Brand, or Famous Dave’s Brand.
Definitely not on the Weight Watchers plan, but really delicious and perfect for famished punks are these Baked Potatoes Stuffed with Ham and Brie. Look for sale Sendik’s Applewood Smoked Honey Ham and Sendik’s Brie. Sometimes simple really is best. Pair them with a big salad and dinner is served. : )Featured, Fresh, Frugal, Fabulous, News | May 17th, 2012
