I keep a big bag of boneless, skinless chicken breasts from Sam's in the freezer and my son had recommended the Butterball turkey patties so I got them. I have a George Foreman that I use a lot. I also like to put several chicken breasts on the grill or in the oven so that I have some already cooked for several days. I usually keep boiled eggs in the fridge too. Since my stomach doesn't like a lot of raw fruit and veggies so I keep those to meal time and snack on chicken, turkey or boiled eggs when I need a snack. I am also forgetful of eating when I am busy then I come to the kitchen starving and don't want to wait for food to cook so having some in the fridge keeps me from eating from the kid's snack shelf.
Something I also like to do is put 4 large breasts in the crockpot (no need to thaw if it is frozen) add a package of 0 point taco seasoning and add one or two cups of salsa. This stores for several days and also freezes well. I make all kinds of casserole and soups out of it on the spur of the moment. I add black beans and fiesta corn (which I almost always have on hand) for a quick grab (heat or don't depending on the mood), The kids like it on a tortilla shell with a dab of sour cream and cheese and heated in the quesadilla maker or on a taco shell. I also like it over salad greens. It's also good over rice and quinoa, which I love, but don't keep on hand because my husband is diabetic and a carb addict so he would have it every meal if it was in the fridge. It's really versatile and I can taste it.
Good to know about the chicken skewers from Aldi's. Thanks for the heads up. We don't have one around us but there is one beside Harbor Freight Tools and Lowe's about 25 minutes across the city and my husband has to go to one or the other almost weekly. I have a cooler bag in my car so I could get some and a bag of ice. I saw a post on Doing WW at Aldi's on Pinterest that I am going to have to look over so that I can get a few more things the next time we go.
