Get a Husband Brunswick Stew
A bit too sweet for our tastes but very good. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs as the only meat in the recipe and chopped the bell pepper before use.

Shepherd's Pie VI
This is a good base to start from. I used Yukon Gold potatoes & had to add some milk to the mashed potatoes. Extra sharp cheddar worked well. I wanted a variety of vegetables so I sliced baby carrots and steamed them. Towards the end of the carrot cooking time, I added in frozen corn kernels followed by frozen peas. The vegetables were mixed into the meat mixture. The flavor was a bit bland for our tastes but the combination of flavors overall was still good.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs
2012-05-28 I had made this in a test run before our annual family gathering. Making it according to the instructions resulted in chicken that was moist but lacking in the flavor I wanted. The second time I made it, I made extra marinade that I put aside as a dipping sauce. & marinated the chicken for 24 hours before grilling. The results were much better.
