I’ve been spending quite a bit of time there lately.  Discovered an app for my phone and kindle which sometimes helped the long hours go by when we were at the hospital with my Father in Law who just passed away.   I pinned a TON of recipes and thought I would share a few here with you that I thought might be useful to ‘banders’.

 

Protein Ranch Dressing: (Serves 4)
1 Cup Cottage Cheese (Watch your label, sometimes low fat doesn’t mean low calories and the regular cottage cheese is only a few cal. more)
3-4 tsp. Buttermilk Ranch Dressing mix
1/4 C. water (or milk if you prefer: Milk will add more calories) add more water if the consistency is too thick for your liking.

Add ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. (About 3 min.) Enjoy!

Chicken Ranch Tacos:

3 cups cooked chicken, cut up
1 pkt. taco seasoning (chicken or beef)
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
——————
taco shells
lettuce
cheese
Ranch dressing
tomatoes
etc…

Heat a skillet over med-high heat. Add chicken & warm it for a few minutes. Sprinkle on the dry taco seasoning. Do not add any water! Heat for 5-7 minuted until all heated through & powder is stuck to the chicken.

Add Ranch dressing, heat an additional 2-3 minutes to warm through.

Serve in taco shells with all the fixings you love – plus an extra squirt of Ranch!

I’m also exploring freezer to crockpot meals and have put quite a few bags of these in the freezer.  Today’s selection (closed my eyes and grabbed one!) is Pork and apples.   I’ll let you know how it turns out.  I am planning to make some mashed potatoes for Chris and some green beans for the side.
