What's For Dinner?

Every day around 3:00 this is the question I hear at least 100 times. Today when my kids started asking I told them what we were having & their response was "that sounds yummy." This is not what they usually say so I know they must be STARVING (& they have had a snack so no worries. They will make it to dinner).

So...this is what we are having for dinner...

HONEY-BAKED CHICKEN (my sister-in-law Lindsay's recipe)

Split chicken breasts (or boneless, skinless breasts)
Butter, melted
Garlic powder
Black pepper
Lawry's Seasoning Salt

Place chicken breasts in baking dish and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder, black pepper and paprika. Sprinkle generously with Lawry's Seasoning salt. Seal tightly with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and generously top chicken breasts with honey. Bake uncovered until golden brown. The broth can be used as a delicious dipping sauce.


2 or 3 cans whole green beans
bacon slices
1stick butter
1C. brown sugar
1t. Garlic Salt

Place green beans in a bowl & salt them a little w/regular salt or Cavender's (my favorite)
Wrap handful of green beans in 1/2 slice of bacon.
Melt stick of butter and stir in 1 C. Brown sugar
Add 1 t. Garlic Salt
Pour over bundles

Bake 350 for 30 minutes

**We were going to have this but don't have all the stuff...boo hoo!!!**

1 stick butter, melted plus 1/4 C. melted, plus more for pan
1 C. grated parmesan cheese plus more for sprinkling
2t. Dried Italian seasoning
2 pkgs. biscuits

Pre-heat oven to 350. Lightly butter bundt pan; set aside.
In small bowl combine cheese & It. seasoning. Roll each biscuit into ball & dip in 1 stick melted butter, then coat with cheese mixture. Place into prepared pan. Bake 30-35 min. Cover with foil the last 10 min. of bkng. to prevent excessive browning if needed. Let cool in pan 10 min. Invert onto serving plate. Drizzle with remaning 1/4 C. melted butter & sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.

I'M STARVING!!!! What are you having for dinner?

Yum!! Sounds good! We had Hawaiian Baked Chicken, White Rice, Green Beans, and Croissants. It was okay...nothing spectacular! But I am looking forward to the Monkey Bread that is rising in the kitchen right now!! I'll have to try that chicken recipe...sounds yummy!
