Here we go again, with the "What's for dinner" question that I hear at least fifty times a week from each of my three kids. (minus the days the oldest is working, then I only hear it 45 times a week). Regardless, it gets really old, really fast. Why can't I just close my eyes and wish for some amazing, healthy meal ideas to magically appear in my inbox?! *magic voice from the other room* "Oh, but it CAN be that easy (almost), with eMeals! ".

I have been a member of eMeals for almost a week and I am totally satisfied with the meal plan I got, but even if I weren't, I can always look at the previous week's plan and use it or a variation of both. I chose the classic menu plan, which is full of family favorites, that will please any palate and it didn't disappoint.

In the meantime, here's an awesome dinner idea you can use tonight, Hot Tamale Pie...
In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 box of Jiffy cornbread mix, 1/3 cup milk, 1 Tblspn taco seasoning, a can of creamed corn and a few chopped banana peppers. (the recipe called for green chiles, but I didn't have any and the banana peppers were fine).
Pour the cornbread mixture into a 9x9 casserole dish and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
While your cornbread is cooking, boil two chicken breast, drain, cool and shred with a fork.
To the boiled, shredded chicken, I added a cup of sour cream, the rest of the package of taco seasoning and a few hand-fulls of fresh spinach. (the recipe didn't call for the spinach or sour cream, but I like to sneak spinach in where I can, as Micah is iron deficient and every little bit helps)
Add the chicken mixture to the par-baked cornbread and top with a generous hand-full of shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is warmed through. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
