What to make for dinner- A winning recipe

There are two extra hard times of the day. The morning rush when we are all trying to get out of the door, and then again around 4:30pm. Everyone comes home from school and activities. They are starving and I am trying to get dinner on the table while helping with homework and everything else.

On top of that, my husbands schedule has changed drastically and dinner together has now become a new challenge.

Eating dinner together is one of the most important things we can do as a family. Remember, Family Dinners are one of our Must Have Resolutions this year.

Lately I have been trying to get dinner more under control. Creating meal plans and an arsenal of recipes that are convenient, easy, and good for us.

Tonight we tried something new, and it was a hit. I thought I would share. I can't be the only one who struggles with the early evening rush.

If you need to get dinner on the table quick, here is a perfect weeknight meal. If you are trying to impress dinner guests, this is still the perfect recipe.

Carbonara Rice with Chicken

Minute Ready-to-Serve Rice
Alfredo Sauce
Basil-Fresh is best

1. Grill or Broil your Chicken Breast. Cut into slices.

2. Cook your Minute Ready-to-Serve Rice. This is my favorite part of the meal. It only takes 60 seconds and the rice is ready. It tastes like it came out of a rice cooker.

3. Mix together the rice, bacon, peas, and basil.

4. Add as much Alfredo Sauce as you would like.

5. Plate your carbonara rice and top with sliced chicken.

It took less than 20 minutes to get this meal on the table. All 4 of our children loved the meal and hubby gave it two thumbs up. He added a little hot sauce to his.

  4. Hello, my name is RITA CARMEN and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years. i have been looking for ways online for so long, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, but there was no way from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until my Doctors in Australia told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). For months after my IVF no progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already had plans or getting married to another woman because I was barren. I read a testimony about Prophet Abulele how he had helped so many women with pregnancy problems and also how he usually casts return spells to bring back partner and make one fertile. Of all options tried, I gave Prophet Abulele a try. I am now a mother of a baby boy. For over 13 years of my marriage I received my help from this spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster. Prophet Abulele's email is:- prophetabulelehealingtemple@gmail.com and his WhatsApp is +2349022406159 once you contact him, he will help you fast.

  5. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
