April and May were such busy months that I think we had more pizzas on the go than real food. But here's what the kids did cook in April and May.

Chicken Drummette Dinner
16 chicken drummettes thawed
8 mini corn on the cob
8 small red potatoes quartered
1/4c creamy mustard-mayo sauce (didn't know what this was so we mixed gray poupon with mayo)
1 tbs vegetable oil
½ tsp garlic-pepper blend (didn't find anything like this so we mixed our own)
¼ tsp salt

Place corn in a bowl of warm water for 20 minutes to partially thaw.
Heat overn 425F. Spay 15x10x1 pan with cooking spray (we used 10x13 baking pan)

Place drummettes and potatoes in a large bowl. Drain corn and add. Add mustard sauce, oil, pepper blend and salt. Toss to coat. Place in pan and bake 40-50 minutes turning chicken and vegetables once during baking.

Jessica doesn't remember where she got the recipe for this breakfast pizza.

Adam made the recipe from the back of a box of Rotini. He didn't care for it so we didn't add it to our recipe book. It wasn't bad, just too much cream of chicken soup. It also had chicken chunks and cheese. It might be really good with a sauce instead of the soup.

Tyler made Tuna helper on a Wednesday which is our crazy day with people coming and going for dance, church choir, orchestra etc.

Adam made a recipe from the back of the Parmesan cheese container that had bow tie pasta, spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese.

Jasmine made something my friend Megan suggested. Two boxes of Beef Rice a Roni cooked according to the box but add a pound of ground beef browned and a can of corn drained.

Tyler cooked a dish with macaroni, sausage and buttermilk.

Macaroni Sausage Skillet Meal
2 lbs ground sausage
1 lg can chopped tomatoes
½ c chopped onions
½ c green peppers
4 c buttermilk
2 T sugar
2 tsp salt
2 T chili powder
4 c uncooked elbow macaroni

Brown sausage with onions and peppers. Add tomatoes, buttermilk and macaroni. Heat up until simmering. Cover and simmer 30 minutes.

Kayla made linguine with Alfredo sauce and peas.

Good for them. I love that they all know/learn how to cook.
