Publix and I are best friends. When you spend hours at the grocery store as I do you have to love the place. I love their apron simple meals and have used them on this blog and have prepared them for my classes many times with great results. This Parmesan-Crusted Chicken that I discovered this summer is a keeper. Anyone that can boil water and turn on the oven has got it made. Plus the meal is so delicious. By the way for all of you that are interested school starts for me two weeks from today. Where has my summer gone? So I’m digging in and enjoying every last minute.

Whoever came up with the idea of using wonton wrappers as the base of everything from lasagna to tacos is a GENIUS! These are great for parties. Anything that does not require a fork when eating is always a hit. And who doesn’t love a taco both kids and adults . These are so quick and easy that your kids can put them together. They’ll have a blast in the kitchen.
I first had Taco Cups at my neighbor Kim’s along with this. YUM! I got there early and watched her put these together in a matter of minutes and popped them in the oven for just seven minutes. She pulled them out and served. That quick and I was sold! Guests then topped them with their favorites such as this guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo and jalapenos.
We all want that quick fix for dinner. I’ve found that perfect fix. Quesadillas!! They are fast, easy, so versatile and above all tasty. My students made these last week and they had a blast.
The photo is from my second period. I was so impressed with their work. I loved their extra effort and their super excitement in class. And yes they will get extra credit.
Oh Yes! Baked Wings you can make that will knock your socks off. And they are just in time for your Super Bowl party. You’ll be so proud of yourself for pulling this off without all of the calories of frying. I cannot think of anyone that does not love hot wings, but I’ll be the first to say that I cannot eat them without the guilt. We now can because of the recipe that I saw posted from my friend Diana last year during the super bowl from this fabulous blog. Yes, a year ago. I’ve made these a dozen times and have enjoyed them immensely. Today I made them for lunch and finally could take a decent photo. So here it is for all of you to try. You’ll never buy them again.
These are perfect for Sunday’s Superbowl Game! They’re so cute and so good. Think spicy pizza bites, but better. Carter said, “This is in the top three Mrs. Lupo!” Now that’s good! Two years ago I was introduced to this variation and they were a hit. I wanted to try them again but with a little change-up. It worked well. If you are trying to make out a Superbowl menu make sure you serve these little cups. They are super easy and will be a party pleaser for sure.
I came out of my comfort zone today with this salad. Adding fruit to fish or chicken is just not my style, but this salad is really good . It comes together in the ten minutes it takes to cook the pasta. If you really don’t care for the taste of canned tuna the apples and grapes turn it into a not so tuna salad.
So here’s how it came down for lunch…
We’re spending some time by the ocean and here’s what we had for dinner the other night. Just a perfect dish for anytime , but the dish was really good for a little vacation time! It’s so easy and packed with lots of flavor. I like it with a little more heat so I added more chipotle peppers. Don’t wait for vacation to try these shrimp and grits now is the perfect time. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
