Usually Mr. Armstrong is the one that explores in the kitchen. He loves to cook. He makes a-mazing meals every time he steps in the kitchen. I, on the other hand, am the master of mac'n'cheese, frozen chicken strips, tacos, and anything else that doesn't require a recipe because I tend to forget important ingredients every time I cook.

Well, last week we decided we needed to completely change our menu if I wanted to drop some pounds. So, that means no more mac'n'cheese, instant mashed potatoes, frozen chicken strips, summer sausage and everything else we had had started eating every week because it was easy.

Last night I made something that turned out to be good. This is a small miracle! Instead of our frozen chicken, mac'n'cheese, and mixed veggie meal, I made home-made Almond Crusted Chicken Fingers. Instead of the mac we had sweet potatoes fries.

It was delicious and SO much better for us. I think I am going to start exploring more in the kitchen. I actually enjoyed it, and I didn't forget a singe ingredient.

Get cookin' today.


  1. You should check out! I haven't dug into it too much yet, but they give you menus and shopping lists so you can do everything on one day - then freeze until you're ready to eat. The ingredients and meals seem super easy. I'm like you in the cooking department...give me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and I'm happy. :)

  2. Sounds yummy to me! I like the website posted above by mindy! Another great one is called :) lots of cool stuff & easy for momma's! Might have to try your chicken recipe!
