Lisa’s Macaroni Salad

What you need

6 large eggs hard boiled
1 package of egg noodles cooked
salt and black pepper to taste
2 tbsp mustard
1 cup mayonnaise
3 medium dill pickles chopped
2 green onion chopped
2 ribs celery chopped
2 small cucumbers chopped
paprika

In a large bowl add cooked macaroni, dill pickles, onion, celery, and cucumbers.

Slice eggs in 1/2 and put the yolks in a bowl and set aside. Chop up egg whites and add them to the macaroni.

Smash egg yolks with a fork, add mustard, mayonnaise and salt and pepper to taste. Mix together well.

Add the mixture to your macaroni and mix well. Sprinkle top with paprika and top with chopped chives if desired.
Enjoy 😊
Note: I made 2 of these salads and the one I only had macaroni, eggs and added relish but made the dressing the same as Barry doesn’t like dill pickles, onions or celery. It was very yummy as well and the only reason I used egg noodles was bc that’s all I had, grocery shopping day is coming soon. You could use a 1/2 of a large cucumber too 🙂

Lisa’s Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

I made this tonight and it was a hit. Sharing my recipe with you 🥰

Lisa’s Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

What you need

3 lbs lean ground beef

2 eggs

1 cup of Italian style bread crumbs

2 tsp basil

2 tsp oregano

2 tsp garlic (I use granulated garlic)

2 tsp pepper

2 tsp parsley

A bag of mixed cheese that’s good for lasagna

1 jar of your fav spaghetti sauce, I used Classico 3 cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 9×9 square pan well with cooking spray. In a big bowl mix together everything except for the cheese and sauce. Mix well with hands and place about 1/2 of the meat mixture in your prepared pan. Put 2 good size handfuls of cheese on top and then place the rest of the meat on top sealing the edges together well. I leave about 1/2 an inch of room around the whole loaf. Pour jar of sauce over top, cover with tinfoil and bake for about 45- 50 minutes, remove tinfoil and put some more cheese on top and bake another few minutes until cheese is melted.

Lisa’s Quick and Easy Chicken Stir Fry and Rice

Looking for a quick and easy and healthy weekday meal, here you go, my kids love when I make this 🙂

Lisa’s Quick and Easy Chicken Stir Fry and Rice

what you need for the stir fry
3 chicken breasts cut into strips (i use boneless)
1 can sliced mushrooms drained
1 onion chopped
1 carton of low sodium chicken broth
1 bag frozen veggies (i used one with broccoli, cauliflower and baby carrots)
olive oil
soy sauce
Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
cornstarch or flour to thicken

Heat a big frying pan or a wok, I have a big frying pan I use that’s really deep. Once heated add olive oil, when oil is heated add your chopped onions and sauté for about a min, add your chicken and mushrooms cook till no longer pink, add chicken broth, a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce and a few shakes of soy sauce salt and pepper to taste, add veggies and stir well, cover and simmer for about 10 min stirring occasionally you want to make sure the veggies are cook, not mushy still crisp. Mix cornstarch and a bit of water to make a paste (or use flour, if using flour make sure you get all the lumps out and its smooth ) I use corn starch as I find it thickens quicker and fewer lumps. Pour paste into your stir-fry as you stir continually to make sure your sauce thickens evenly. Once thickened remove from heat. serve over rice. ~Enjoy~

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad

8 medium Russet Potatoes
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 small onion, chopped
Chives, to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Wash and cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Cover with water and boil until fork tender, about 20-25 minutes. Do not overcook!

2. Drain and cool the potatoes. I put them in a separate bowl and once they cooled enough I put them in the fridge to cool all the way. This gave them an excellent texture and prevented the dairy ingredients from getting hot or the cheese from melting. If you are serving this salad hot then you don’t need to cool the potatoes, just skip step 2!

3. Mix the mayo and sour cream together in a bowl. Add to the potatoes, then add the onions, chives, and cheese. Salt and pepper to taste – I use a pepper grinder and a sea salt grinder for EVERYTHING so I never know exactly how much of either I put in. I think the taste is far superior to just use regular table salt and pepper.

4. Top with extra shredded cheese and bacon and serve!
