Lemon Chicken:

This is best with chicken that is not skinless/boneless but you can do it with either.

Enough chicken for your family for two nights
Two lemons
Seasoning Salt (msg free)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a baking pan place the chicken. Squeeze the lemon juice over all of the chicken. Sprinkle seasoning salt over each piece of chicken somewhat lightly (you don't want it too salty). Bake until a meal thermometer reads 165, turning the pieces occasionally.

Salmon, Strawberry, and Spinach Salad:

4 oz smoked salmon
1 pint strawberries
1 bunch spinach
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 red onion thinly sliced
Honey-balsamic vinaigrette: 1 tablespoon honey, 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 clove chopped garlic mix everything but the olive oil the stream the olive oil in slowly while beating the vinegar mix quickly. Serve over the salad.

Chili: This is a very mild NOT spicy Chili

1 onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1lb hamburger or ground turkey
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 bottle 32 oz tomato juice
1 can black beans
1 T chili powder
2 t cumin
1/2 t coriander
1 1/2 t beef bouillon
cinnamon, sugar, salt and pepper to taste

Cook onion, red bell pepper and hamburger or ground turkey until meat
is done.  Add the rest of the ingredients, cook on low for 2-3 hours.

Serve with cornbread, cheese, and diced onions. 

Prime Rib and Yorkshire Pudding:

I have to get the recipe from my husbands Mom or click the links to get recipes I found online. :)

For those of you who do not know what Yorkshire Pudding is (as I did not until I had it at my in-laws) it is similar to a dutch baby pancake in look and texture but it is not sweet. It tastes best (in my opinion) with gravy or aux jus. It is tender and slightly chewy. It comes out of the oven all poofy like a dutch baby pancake does. Sometime people make them in a popover style by baking them in cupcake tins instead of a larger baking dish.
