for a dinner dish i like this one...
Take a few bonelss skinless chicken breasts and lay then in a baking dish on fresh spinach leaves. Then cover the chicken with a box of stuffing mix *not made* and then 2 cans of cream of chicken soup (do not add milk to the soup mix) Smear it all over, cover in tinfoil and put in over at 350 for about 40 ish min.

this is one of our favorites: fry up some hamburger with onion a little garlic and ginger. when cooked add assorted veggies that you like. i like carrots, red pepper, mushrooms, brocoli, cauliflower, celery. and 2 cups dry uncooked egg noodles. add one can of mushroom soup and one can of milk and one of water.(i mix these up with a wisk and add them together) if you need a bit more liquid just add more. put a lid on it and cook for about 15 minutes. the veggies should just be tender crisp and the noodles aldente. now add your spices. salt pepper and 1 cup chilli sauce. or i used asian chilli sauce which gave it a totally different flavour and so good.

gonna try out the rice pudding tonight and one of the chicken recipes tomorrow. (:

my new favorite recipe is for spahgetti squash

bake the squash for an hour at 350 with some water in the pan, covered until well done
fry up some hamburger meat, then add peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic and whatever else you want to add and cook until tender. mix in a can of sphagetti sauce(i used half a can and half a squash at a time) mix with squash and bake with cheese on top until the cheese is melty and golden. it was really good, better than any real pasta i've had in a long time. for the cheese i used a mix of cheddar, mozzarella and parmagian. mmmmmmm.................

yes, ma's recipee was very tasty. we made it with apple juice cause we don't drink much and don't keep alcohol on hand. super easy, and it went over well with us.
the rice pudding was great too. i made it twice. i'm not sure what kind of rice the op uses. mine did not cook enough the first time so i had to let it sit for a long time when it was done to soften the rice. the second time, i half cooked the rice first and added a bit less sugar and it turned out perfect.
