Chicken Stroganoff

Here is a yummy twist to an older standard. I love regular stroganoff but we don’t eat a whole lot of beef here, nor do the boys like mushrooms. This recipe is a great sub for that lovely sour cream sauce you crave but with tender, delicious chicken and pasta instead. This is also a quick week night meal. 30 minutes tops and you’re ready for supper!

September Menu ~ 2013

This month I am including breakfast and lunch recipes/ideas because we are a brown-bag kind of family. If you’ve been reading here long enough you know that Number Two isn’t a big lunch eater anyway, so not only is it economical for me to pack lunches for the kids, it also allows me to control how much potential waste there might be.

An example of this would be to pack Two only half a sandwich, about 4 carrot sticks and a PB-To-Go cup, maybe a dozen mini pretzels and a juice box. Other days I might give him a snack bag sized portion of veggie or tortilla chips and maybe 2 cookies along with his half sandwich or other “main” lunch item. And I can’t even be sure he eats all of that, little portions as they are. So you can see how getting something nutritional yet fun and tasty in him is important to me, and let’s face it, those school lunches aren’t very nutritious (no matter what their campaign says).

I have a lot of new and exciting recipes to share with you this month! Be sure to stay posted while I’m working on them and watch for the red links to appear as I post each one.
