A very common go-to meal for us (pre-my-aversion to chicken) has always been chicken casserole and corn with sister shubert rolls! I have served this on many occasions and way too often for my own little family!

You girls are adorable! I love it! Ok, my favorite "go-to" meal is probably toasted cheese sandwiches with tomato soup. Is that boring? We try to jazz it up with herbs like basil and so forth. Oh, and I'm a follower! Miss you! Fiona

My go-to meal is to drive down the street to Maxwell's Market and pick up some tuna steaks. They're so fresh, you just come home and toss them on the grill and done! So easy, and they have wonderful sides, too. Spinach and artichoke stuffed mushrooms .... yes, please!

Emily A said...

I'm already a follower...I've also printed out most of the recipes already and put them in my BIG BINDER but I'm sure they would be much cuter in a Vera Box! My go-to meal is Italian Casserole. Pretty sure anyone who knows me well (Lindsey :) ) already knows this!

One of the favorite go to meals is just plain old grilled cheese with either bacon and tomatoes in them or eggs on toast. That is if we can't decide what to make.

My favorite go to meal is chicken tacos - so easy - all you need is a crockpot. In it you place one bag frozen chicken breasts, one package of fajita seasoning mix and one jar of your favorite salsa. When done, flake the chicken - fill a shell or tortilla, add your favorite toppings and voila - it's delish!

Hey girls!!! My favorite go-to meal is beef tips and rice. Or pancakes and eggs if the husband is cooking. However, I really need recipes if I am going to become more than just a once-a-month cook!

I am a follower but Blogless, My favorite go to meal is easy fish tacos. Won ton papers placed in muffin tins and baked for five minutes (easily burn) @ 375. Arugula, mango, tomato, avocado salad, toss this in a balsamic lime vinagrette, top with pan seared tilapia cut into cubes. Then mix a wasabi paste or powder with sour cream and put on top. So delicious and very easy. Last time I served with a corn and black bean salad and everyone loved it!
