Dinner Challenge Week 2

I enjoyed my first week so much that I was very much looking forward to the second week. Here is what I came up with :

-Turkey Chili and cornbread
-baked potato bar with all the fixin's
-corn chowder and rolls*
-chicken enchiladas and Spanish rice with salad
-Chicken fried steak and potatoes with roasted veggies
-tomato macaroni (our Friday night tradition but only doing it once this month. It's just macaroni noodles, canned Italian style tomatoes and diced up string cheese) with salad*
-calzones yep you guessed it... more salad! It's a big hit at our house
*Vegetarian meals

I never realized how much chicken we eat around here. I like to buy chicken breast on the bone. Not only is it cheaper but I love working with it. I place about 5 or 6 of them on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake at 425 F for 25 mins. It comes out tasting just like I roasted a whole bird but without having to deal with the dark meat which we are not a fan of around here. I let it cool for a while and de-bone the meat and divide it into freezer containers for use in tons of different meals. You can often times find bone in chicken breast on sale and a little prep work goes a long way! It;s awesome to have a freezer full of chicken I can add to so many things.
