What's For Dinner?

Thought I'd start keeping up with recipes I liked to boost grocery list ideas when planning for the next week's meals.  I'll keep a running link list to recipes in the sidebar.  So if you ever need some ideas, check it out.  :)

Tonight we had:
Pineapple Baked Chicken Thighs
Cheesy Potatoes
Corn on the Cob
Dessert:  Fudge

I peeled, and cut up some potatoes and put them in a pot to boil.  When they were nice and soft, I drained them, but them in a casserole dish, sprinkled some salt and freshly ground pepper and covered it all with cheddar cheese.  Then I popped them in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese.

This recipe is from
2 lbs. chicken breasts (4 breasts)
2 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
8 3/4 oz. can drained, crushed pineapple or pineapple tidbits
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. lemon juice
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. soy sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In ungreased 9" square baking pan, place chicken pieces skin side up. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes. Prepare glaze; pour over chicken. Return to oven and continue baking 30 to 40 minutes, basting occasionally until deep golden brown and tender.To prepare with drumsticks and thighs: Bake 20 to 30 minutes after glazing. Wings: Bake 10 to 20 minutes after glazing.


  1. Jeez ... can we come over for dinner? It sounds a lot better than what we eat. And fudge for dessert? YUMMY!

  2. It all sounds yummy! I hate to cook but this seems fairly simple and easy.
