Ham Tortilla Roll-ups

Ham Tortilla Roll-ups

This is the third new recipe I found online for our dinner this week.  I’m sure I’ve made this in the past, but it’s new to our weekly meals.  And let me say this, if you’re in a rush to go to kids sports, or you just have somewhere to go that day, this is the easiest thing to throw together.

I’m sure this probably fits more under an appetizer than a meal, but the kids loved this.  In fact, Caleb said he is a fan!  And for a five year old to say he’s a fan of it, then I’m good to go!!!

There’s not much preparation for this at all.

Here’s what you need:

4-6 small flour tortilla shells

Onion and Chive cream cheese spread

sliced provolone cheese

chopped lettuce

shaved Ham (or whatever meat you like)

All you do is warm up the tortilla shells in the microwave so they are easier to fold (just a few seconds is all it takes).  Spread the cream cheese over entire tortilla.  Top with sliced cheese and ham.  Place the chopped lettuce over the bottom portion of shell and tightly roll it up.  Cut into 4 big pieces and totally enjoy.  I can eat two or three of these myself and so can the kids.  Again, it’s not a huge, fancy put together meal.  We are heading out for the night and it was the easiest thing to put together.

Have a great rest of the week and enjoy!


Stove Top Sweet Citrus Chicken

Stove Top Sweet Citrus Chicken

Every week I make a list of “what’s for dinner”.  I can’t tell you how long I sit and think about what to have for that week.  I do get tired of the same old things, but it’s so hard to plan when there are different tastes between some of us!!!

But really, I sit and think for at least an hour of what I’m going to make for the seven day week.  This week I told myself I’m trying one new recipe.  I don’t care if  I make it up or I find it online, I’m trying something new.

If it were just me, I’d throw anything together (minus tomatoes!!), but it’s not, so there has to be some planning on my end.  I googled healthy dinners, 7 days dinner plans, 5 day dinner plans, and found a few that the family might like.  In fact, we are trying 3 new meals this week.  So far we had a new mix of sloppy joes (which I forgot to take a pix of – I ate it too fast).  This is one of the recipes I found online and it was sooooooo good.

The citrus in the title does not do it justice.  The orange juice and brown sugar over the chicken is very good.  I highly recommend this one!!!  Even the ones with “different” tastes are sure to like this one!

Here’s what you need:

1-2/3 cups hot water

1 pkg.  (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken

6 small Boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), pounded to 1/2-inch thickness

2/3 cup  Orange juice

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

3 Tbsp.  Butter or margarine, melted

Heat the oven to 400 degrees..

Here’s how:

ADD hot water to stuffing mix; stir just until moistened.

PLACE chicken in 13×9-inch baking dish. Mix juice, sugar and butter until blended; pour over chicken. Top with stuffing.

BAKE 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF).

The orange juice/brown sugar gets nice and thick and coats the chicken…Mmmm..I had seconds.
