Nothing tastes better than delicious home cooked meals! Looking for some great home cooking ideas? Let’s check in and see “What’s AJ’s Wife Cooking”!
For Cinco de Mayo this past Saturday, we had a plain version of Chicken Nachos!
1 can (12.5 ounces) or 1 pouch (7 ounces) premium chunk chicken breast.
1 bag (8 ounces) tortilla chips.
2 cups of shredded chesse.
Spread tortilla chips on baking sheet, topped with chicken.
Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 300-degrees in the oven for 10-minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve with your favorite toppings, such as black beans and salsa.
CROCK POT CUBE STEAK
6 cube steaks*
1 medium onion peeled and sliced into rings
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1/2 soup can of water
salt and pepper
Peel, slice and separate the rings of one medium sized onion.
Salt and pepper each cube steak.
Place 2 cube steaks in the bottom of your crock-pot.
Top with onions and repeat. Separating each addition of meat with onions. This will help separate them later and avoid them being one melded mass of cube steak.
In a separate bowl, add the cream of soups and water and mix it up. Pour the soup mixture over the meat..
Sprinkle the onion soup mix on top, put the lid on the crock-pot and turn it on low.
Soon your kitchen will start to smell delicious and 6-7 hours later you will have a dinner! Add a side of mashed potatoes to help enjoy the gravy an a salad or green veggie and you are ready to eat.
Note: If you like cream of mushroom soup, I’m sure you can use that as well. As for me, I’m not a fan, so I opted for a different combination.
*My wife actually used 8 steaks.
PORK CHOP AND BAKED POTATO
Brown pork chop on both sides in pan or skillet.
Put in corning wear dish and pour on cream of mushroom soup.

BLT ON TOAST WITH AN EGG
This recipe is as simple as it gets, but it is quick and it is a crowd pleaser!
You know the ingredients, the only task is how do you prefer them for this treat.
I like my bacon cooked medium, not hard but not fatty either.
I like my lettuce cut about the size of the bread. I suppose you could option for shredded lettuce if you like.
I like my tomato medium cut, not too thin or too thick for this sandwich.
I like my toast medium cooked, not burnt.
I normally like my eggs scrambled, but for this sandwich I liked my egg fried.
I also like to add mustard and some hot sauce to my BLT on toast with egg!
