TWFDS Project: Day 4 Go-To Meals

Kathi Lipp talks about how every family has their go-to meals.  You know the ones...when all else fails, you make this.  I don't really have any of these--yet.  I used to make spaghetti about once a week.  I boiled noodles and heated up a can of Hunt's (or Wal-Mart brand) spaghetti sauce. Add a can of corn and a can of olives, and dinner is on the table in 20 minutes.

It was meals like this one (and ones with frozen chicken nuggets or corndogs) that made me decide I needed to expand my repertoire to offer my family better choices.

Your challenge:
Today, share you family's favorite recipe. What's the one (or two?) go to meal that you make almost every week?  Remember, comments on this series will get you an entry to win a copy of The What's For Dinner Solution.

For more ideas, Kathi has a newsletter filled with great recipes and tips for every area of your home. Plus when you sign up for the newsletter, your will receive The Ultimate Guide to Man Food an e-cookbook that will rock your husband’s culinary world. Head over to her website at

We like the Hidden Valley Original Ranch Cheddar Chicken,found here:
served with a salad or raw cut veggies and some rice. The rice and chicken cook at the same time, and then I can prepare salad/veggies during that time as well.

Another favorite go to recipe is pulled pork sandwiches. We put a 2-4 lb pork loin in the crockpot with some apple juice. Cook it on low all day. Shred and mix in favorite BBQ sauce,we like Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet and Spicy, and serve with coleslaw for the adults and cut veggies for the adults and kids.
