In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu


I remembered to take pictures last week! lol


This Chicken Pasta Salad has been a family favorite for years. It’s that good!

I didn’t feel like cooking one night, so I was rummaging for something easy. lol I found a package of pre made hamburgers that I had got on clearance. Perfect! We had a very simple meal for burgers and zucchini on the grill. The family didn’t seem to care that I picked easy that night. lol

Sausage Pasta Skillet Dinner is another family favorite. It’s easy, too. I love it when family favorites are easy on me. lol

So…. don’t hate me for making easy meals last week. lol Here’s another one. I got the starter on sale at the grocery store for 99 cents. I added chicken, some rice, corn, and beans to the mexican style sauce.


Mexican Style One Pot Dinner Ingredients


Another one pot wonder that my family loved. I served it with cheese and sour cream. Even my picky 20 year old ate it, and had seconds. And no, I don’t cater to him. He usually has leftovers or makes his own food (that he buys) if he doesn’t like what I made.

While grocery shopping this past Saturday, my husband and I saw this weird looking thing in the produce department. Turns out it’s a Jackfruit. I’d heart of it before, but never seen one in person. This one was huge. That’s my husbands large hand in the picture. this fruit was at least 15-18 inches long. I didn’t pull out my measuring tape. lol




We didn’t buy it. After reading the tag, and all the steps involved in getting it ready to eat, it sounded like too much work. lol


Have you ever tried a Jackfruit? Is it worth all the prep required?
