I've been pretty good about finding non-oven dinners to make lately. I average turning it on once a week, but I would love to just quit using it all-together, Too bad there are so many good things to eat from the oven on Pinterest! Whenever I can, I convert them to stove top. And I use my secret weapon to make things crispy crunchy delish:
Every time we finish most of a bag of chips, crackers, or croutons, into this bag it goes, gets beat a little with rolling pin, and stored in the freezer. I can then mix in a little seasoning, maybe some grated cheese, and voila! Delish topping for casseroles, fish, veggies...yum yum. A frugal tip I learned from my mom.
Tuesday - Tuscan Chicken Stew, linguini
Wednesday - Cheddar Bacon Crumb Chicken, broccoli salad, sweet potatoes
Thursday -Freezer clean-out meal
Friday - Salmon with lemon cream sauce, green beans with crunchy crumb topping, skillet potatoes
Saturday - Dad grill, plus Frito Salad
Sunday - Crock Pot Sweet Pulled Pork, rolls, coleslaw
I also want to scale us down to one dessert per week - people here love their desserts! Check this one out by Megan at Crumbs and Chaos - Chocolate PB Marshmallow Bars - if I'm going to have the oven on Wednesday night anyway.....
