Super Supper Monday; Part 4 {Apricot Chicken}

Here is another “keeper” in the way recipes go. I am excited to share with you one of my favorites, and of course, the kids love it as well- Apricot Chicken. A sticky sweet and tangy chicken dish served over rice.

I am going to guess you are reading this post for the recipe, so I will spare you a long winded novel of my week and what is all new in our household. Let’s just say that I am aware it is Wednesday and not Monday. Sticking with the theme, I titled it “Super Supper Monday”. I really do not know where Monday (let alone Tuesday) went, so here it is 😉

Super Supper Monday; Part 2

Pizza Tot Casserole

This is one easy and delicious casserole that is great paired with a fresh green salad. And although I have a recipe card for this casserole, I searched the Web to find the exact recipe for easier viewing. I was able to find it over at Taste of Home.

Coming up short on dinner ideas? Over the next 7 weeks keep watch for my latest family-approved supper recipes.

Our most recent favorite has been Enchilada Soup by: GimmeSomeOven

This recipe seriously requires under 10 minutes prep time, and is loved by all 5 of my children. Now that’s saying something. In the past decade I have failed and triumphed equally when that clock chimes the dinner hour. Some days my family has been forced to eat grilled cheese and canned tomato soup 3 days in a row, other times we eat wholesome home cooked meals all week. The difference for success or fail? The dreaded word- pre-planning. Ok so that may be two words compounded together with a hyphen, minor details. The fact is, I am awful at forgetting that pesky little list at home whilst walking aimlessly around the grocery store- covering at least every aisle 3 times! Someone please tell me I am not alone in this?!
