I was wondering about other people's dinner choices.

You see at my house when I was a kid, we only sat at the table together for dinner special occasions.
We always in the livingroom while watching television. 

My husband's family had certain meals on certain days. 
Meatloaf on Mondays
Tacos on Tuesdays
Roast on Wednesday
Spagetti on Thursday.. etc..

My house has dinner at the dinner table and we barely have the same dish twice in a month.

I am always looking for new foods to try, especially its extremely hard to please 11 different people every meal.  

We do have a few meals that are liked by the majority, these I want to share...we make more then most people need so you might want to cut the recipes in half or freeze half.

Tater Tot Casserole

2 bags of tater tots
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 can of corn
1 onion
2 lbs hamburger
1 lg package of shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the hamburger and onion. drain. Mix in cream of chicken soup and corn. Placed mixture in casserole dish. Cover with cheese, then top with tater tots. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cover casserole with remaining cheese, bake a few minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream.

I always have a canned or fresh fruit as a side dish.

Veggie Pizza (cold)

3 bunches of broccoli
1 head cauliflower
3 red peppers
1 package of shredded cheddar cheese
4 blocks of cream cheese
2 ranch dressing packet (dry)
4 refrigerated crescent rolls
4 tbsp sour cream

Roll out crescent dough to cover cookie sheet, bake as directed on package. Let cool.
Break up broccoli and cauliflower into bite size pieces. Cut peppers into bite size pieces. 
In a bowl mix together cream cheese, ranch, and sour cream.
Spread mixture evenly on crescent. cover with veggies, and then cheese. Cut into squares and serve.

Street Tacos

Olive oil
Corn tortillas
Canned chicken (just cuz I am usually too lazy to cook chicken or I forget to thaw chicken)
Taco seasoning
Limes or lime juice
Cilantro (optional, we forget to get it sometimes)
Mild banana peppers

Use oil to fry tortillas just slightly crispy. once you fry as many tortillas you want, use the same pan for chicken, taco seasoning, cilantro and lime juice heat mixture thoroughly. Scoop mixture and a few mild peppers on tortillas. Options to top, cheese, taco sauce.

Recently I have wanted Street Tacos everyday for weeks.

Hope you try one or all of these.
Please share your opinions if you do.

What is your favorite meal?
