Day 27: What's a Family to Eat?

We are on day 2 of snow days... so Little Man and I didn't go to work. We stayed home and as of right now we have chicken in the oven. I was going to make baked chicken until I realized that I did have rice crispies or special k at my house... so instead I dipped the chicken in chipotle ranch dressing and backed it for 15 minutes and then checked it and poured a little more dressing and then put some butter in the dish to keep things moist. I am baking it at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes. It smells delicious, but that has led me down a path of destruction before. Dinners have about a 50/50 chance of turning out. My philosophy is keeping and open mind and trying new things.

Feeding my family more than frozen pizzas or cereal and pb sandwhiches is important. Though, it is going to take a little longer to be able to find balance and keep this going... I think we are on the right path.

So how did the chicken turn out? I found it really helpful to check out the local grocery ads to see what was on sale and plan my menus around that!

The chicken turned out great! I like when things are super easy to make... We try to keep some meat stocked in our freezer... Every 6-8 weeks the meat department at our local grocery store has a sale of 5 items for 19.99
