UPDATE: Cooking Dinner Straight From the Pantry

26 Feb

I have had the hardest time trying to figure out what to make for dinner tonight.  We have an entire Coupon Zone full of food, and I am just stuck.  So, I decided to go and take a look at my inventory.  That’s when inspiration finally hit! Please tell me I am not alone in my plight.  Sometimes when you have so much too choose from, it can be a little overwhelming.  Have you ever felt this way?

UPDATE: Well…I guess I am wishy-washy, but while in the midst of pulling out everything for dinner, that I originally planned on making, it turned into something else…something wonderful. Here, take a look…

On the menu tonight:

  • Main dish:
    • Dorito Crusted Chicken Breast with a sauce of Cream of Chicken soup and Pico da Gallo.
  • Side dish:
    • Knorr Zatarains Chicken and Rice Side Dish
  • Veggie:
    • Green Beans Pork and Beans
  • Bread:
    • Grands Bisquits
  • Drink:
    • Lipton Ice Tea Dr. Pepper
  • Desert:
    • Girl Scout Cookies

My sweetheart will be home from the gun range soon.  Hopefully this will satisfy his man sized appetite!

Thank you for taking the time to visit The Katy Coupon Zone, blogged from Katy, TX a.k.a…God’s Country!

Happy couponing and…stay in the Zone!!

    HI Katy, dinner looks great. I am sure your hubby was happy. I like the idea for the sauce. I do that sometime and use soup sauce for my dressing. No one would ever know unless we tell them…right:)

      It was so funny, the kids thought it was a cheese sauce. I had to insist that there was no cheese in it at all. They ate every last bit of it. My honey asked for seconds. I’m glad I chose that instead of the Doritos crusted chicken.

        Yes me too:) I was looking at the list that you placed a line though and agreed the bread was not needed and the dessert for me is a iffy, lol. My guilty pleasure at times;)
