Also judging from Heather's last name, her English is probably a lot better than my Spanish.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

We have had to start having more healthy ways of eating chicken breast for example since Steve had his gall bladder removed.

We have found a couple of lovely recipes for light sauces to marinade the chicken in and the cook in the oven in foil...have this served with your salad or vegetables...perfect!

That way the chicken is not bland tasting

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Great ideas and suggestions everyone! Thanks so much for the responses. Trader Joes sells frozen chicken thighs and breasts that do not need to be defrosted. So, I've been baking each with different toppings, such as Siegals, suggestion of tahini (delish btw).

I have also been trying to make meals ahead of time and freeze. I mostly use these for a quick/inexpensive lunch at work. There is a man who has a great blog and you tube videos called white-trash-cooking.com. Look for his link of his make ahead dinners and organized freezer, it will give you inspiration. I freeze alot of soups, stews, chili, and mashed potatoes, I will also roast a chicken, turkey, or pot roast and make gravy from the drippings. I can freeze the meat in individual servings and they also make great soups. Then I freeze the gravy in ice cube trays so I can just pull out one serving of gravy. I will spend an afternoon baking and make gallon size bags of different kinds of muffins, corn bread, and rolls. I can grab one for the road. They are great for nights when everyone wants something different or the nights when the family is on different schedules and making their own quick meals.
Individual mac and cheese, lasgna, manicotti and pot pies freeze well also.

Our grocery store also sells individual fish fillets. Very easy and quick to unthaw and broil as well.

Kylie 1969--I would love it if you could post some of your recipes for your light sauce and foil packets. thanks

Also, spell check.
Spell Check tells me that this sentence is OK: "Eye shore dew no watt ewe mean buy that, oar dead ewe knot want me two say sew?"
Actually sometimes I talk like that and confuse myself.

I used to be a racist, but I don't have much interest in it since Dale Earnhardt got killed.
