We had midwest (or maybe only St. Louis?) Catholic-lent-Friday-dinner.

Fish sticks and macaroni and cheese.

Baked rigatoni.

a lot like Baked Ziti only when you don't have ziti but DO have rigatoni.

A very late dinner tonight. I'll be meeting MB at one of our neighborhood taverns after he finishes work. Veggie burger for me, I think...and a pint or two of cider.

I bought too much chicken. I mean really too much. Instead of my usual pack of three boneless breasts, I ended up with six. I didn't want to freeze it, so I doused the whole lot in Iron Chef Orange Ginger sauce, threw it in the oven, and have hoped for the best.

I will still probably end up freezing some, but will eat chicken for the next couple of days ...

Cooked chicken is always good to have on hand for quick dinners. Shred it or cube it and keep it in the freezer.

Next time you might make that much on purpose.

Three of our favorites:

Tortilla soup
Stir fry
Chicken tetrazzini

I used to be unimpressed with boneless chicken breast. It was always tough and dry and rubbery. But then we learned how to cook it. We do two things differently now. Pound it a little to make it a uniform thickness. Got an instant read digital thermometer so we can monitor it and take it off the heat the instant it reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Now it's moist and tender every time. Cooking method doesn't really matter. Poach, broil, fry. It's all the same inside.

General Midwest. On the weeks you don't have that, you have tuna noodle casserole.

We had tomato soup and grilled cheese and we liked it, dammit.

Another common choice. We had this a lot.

Nobody knew how to cook vegetarian back then, and coming from the midwest fish meant fish sticks or tuna.

One we didn't have often back then, but is a lot more common now - cheese pizza.

We had that for dinner tonight too! But the carrots were in a salad, so there was lettuce and red bell peppers too. A brownie for dessert.

Roast Chicken and Trader Joe's Harvest grain mix. I might throw some cauliflower in there, too.
