Saute some chicken, make some alfredo sauce, add the veggies.
Make Dirty Rice and stir some in.
Freeze some and add them to soup a month later.

Can't wait for winter so I can use my oven again
Know what you mean about ovens. I did have to use mine yesterday cause I needed to make a cake for church today. I think it is the first time it has been on for maybe, a month or longer. I do use my toaster oven daily.

I use leftover ham to make Quiche Lorraine. I make it the nite before I work 4 days, and re-heat a slice the next 4 days!

I buy packs of 3lb chicken thighs when they are on sale. Then in a large frying pan I add a little olive oil, a little garlic, and a chopped onion. After that cooks for a while I salt and pepper my thighs, place them skin side up and cook on low covered for an hour. Then I toss the skins (feed to the dogs) and take the meat off the bones. The juice/onions in the pan is used with two cans of buttermilk biscuits and the meat of one thigh for chicken and dumplings. The meat of two thighs is used for chicken tacos or quesadillas. The rest of the meat I mix with a sweet bbq sauce, put on buns with 4 sliced dill pickles and wrap and freeze for a quick (1:25) microwave burger. I get 8 burgers, 8 tacos, and about 8 bowls of chicken and dumplings (and some dog food!) all for less than $10.
