Simple Dinners: Chili dogs for a Crowd

We are at the end of Baseball season at our house, and we are just getting really busy with Football. So i try to incorporate simple meals that will keep my family happy, and keep me from extra work (and DISHES since my dishwasher recently decided to DIE!) So I have been very careful to choose dishes that did not require a lot of extra work. This fun recipe is delicious, simple, and is always a crowd pleaser at our house.

Thank you to Valerie’s Kitchen for a delicious and simple way to cook Chili dogs for a Crowd. You can check out the full recipe now. Be sure to check out the other awesome food ideas when you’re there.

Now I can make a simple a delicious dinner without the added dishes. Valerie even suggests lining the pan with aluminum foil for less mess. That’s a dream come true for this broken dishwasher momma.  You never realize how important those modern conveniences are until they are gone. Its been nearly two weeks waiting for the broken part. Who knew that I would need to arrange meals around not wanting to do dishes? Well thank you Valerie for saving me time, frustrations, and dried out hands!

Be sure to see Valerie’s other amazing recipes when you visit her site. I am already compiling a list of recipes to try at home! Enjoy!

 

Simple dinners: Sliders!

Baseball season is in full swing here at my house. This means late nights and long days. We rush home three nights a week in an attempt to feed and get kids ready for bed and ready for school the next day. I like to try and keep dinners simple and fast on those nights, and if possible I prep them the day before. That way we can come home, toss them in the oven or microwave and eat.

I try to keep a list of great meals on hand that the kids love. This one fell into my lap a couple of weeks ago, and it was a HUGE hit. We love burgers, but the kids are young and can’t always eat a whole one alone, and I hate to go out and grill on these already busy nights. This recipe allows me to bake everything fairly quickly, and it freezes well.
