    My 10 and 12 year old sons make this all the time. We cook for 10 so, have your mom cut down the amounts for you.
    Shepard’s pie
    4lbs. of ground meat
    (lamb or goat is best, hamburger will work in a pinch)
    1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
    3 lbs. of yukon potatoes
    1 lb. of sharp cheddar cheese
    salt, pepper,ground cumin
    minced garlic or garlic paste
    milk and butter
    large soup pot
    large baking dish

    Preheat oven at 350*. Place ground meat in large pot with a small amount of oil, salt, pepper, and cumin to taste. Cook completely through. If using hamburger drain as much grease as possible. Put cooked meat in large baking dish. Pour frozen vegies in a layer on top of meat. Don’t bother to defrost! In same large pot boil water and add potatoes with some salt. (Cut them up for faster cooking.) When done, drain and put back in pot to eveaporate the rest of the water. Add garlic and butter and mash. Slowly add milk to potatoes until creamy. Do not add too much milk because the potates will absorbe some moisture from the meat and vegies. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour in layer to cover vegies. Grate cheese over the top and cover. Place in oven for 30 minutes.

    2 cups per serving with some bread and milk and the side. Makes great leftovers too!

    If you have some baking potatoes and a microwave, poke a few holes in the potato with a fork and “nuke” it for about 10 minutes. (If your microwave doesn’t have a revolving plate, turn the potato arround about half way through using a hot pad.)

    Then break it open with a butter knife and cover with some cheese and bacon bits and stick it back in the microwave for another minute or so until the cheese melts. Then you can top it with either salsa or sour cream or a little bit of plain yogurt. Great lunch.

    Here are a few E-Z recipes you might want to try. Good Luck & enjoy.

    COLA CHICKEN (And more variations of recipe)
    4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    1 cup catsup
    1 12oz. can cola (pepsi, coke, etc.)

    Put chicken in a non-stick pan.
    Mix together catsup and cola, pour over chicken.
    Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook 45 minutes.
    (turning chicken a few times, while cooking…to prevent from sticking to pan)
    Uncover, turn up the heat and continue to cook until the sauce
    becomes thick and adheres to the chicken.
    It turns into the most incredible BBQ sauce. Yummmm!

    You can double the recipe and use more pieces of
    chicken….wings…would be ideal…add some hot sauce….presto “Hot Wings”!

    I have used Ribs, just as good.

    I tried this recipe with ‘meatballs’….was equally
    as good…served over rice.

    I found another variation…..omit the catsup and add a small jar of Salsa (any variety).
    I have tried using Salsa (omitting the catsup….not).
    You’d think a recipe with only ‘3’ ingredients couldn’t be messed up….wouldn’t you??
    Well…while I was preparing to fix the ‘Cola Chicken’ recipe
    using Salsa…..I was also trying to carry on a conversation with my
    husband…(just proves…I can’t do two things at once)….mixed Salsa & Catsup (before I realized I was supposed to leave out the catsup) & Cola……..still turned out really tasty (to me)…might be a little sweeter than some of you like.

    I fixed chicken wings, (using the above recipe)
    but…I added the spices from a MILD (I don’t care for “HOT”) Buffalo Wings packet…(the kind you get to bake in the oven)…..I thought it was really good…..(but you/I can’t find a ‘bad’ way to fix chicken).

    Finally….!! I fixed the ‘SALSA’ chicken……that’s good , too.

    Another (bright)idea…..I thought of trying……replace the
    catsup with a bottle of Shrimp Cocktail Sauce…and add a bag of (pop corn) shrimp…..!
    Fixed the shrimp with cocktail sauce……eh…wasn’t all that
    great…was OK…probably won’t be fixing it again.

    Also tried beef stew cuts……that was pretty good…..I can see
    myself making this again.
    Served both over rice…..think the stew cuts would have been just as
    good over noodles.

    Try little cocktail weiners/sausages…for appetizers.

    CRUNCHY ONION CHICKEN

    1 1/3 cups French’s Original French Fried Onions
    4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    1 egg, beaten

    LIGHTLY CRUSH:

    Onions in a plastic bag.

    DIP:
    Chicken in egg

    COVER:
    With onion crumbs, press firmly to adhere to chicken.

    BAKE:
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Place chicken on lightly greased baking pan.
    Sprinkle with additional onion crumbs, if desired.
    Bake for 20 minutes or until no longer pink in center.

    POOR MAN’S SWISS STEAK
    Mix: 1 lb. hamburger
    1 cup cornflakes
    salt & pepper to taste
    small amount dices onion
    Spread in a square baking pan.

    Pour: 1 can mushroom soup
    1 can water
    (combine together, first)
    Pour over meat mixture.
    Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

    CHILLI DOG CASSEROLE
    1 pkg. (8) hot dog buns
    1 pkg. (8) hot dogs (use more if you like)
    1 can Chilli (15 oz. without beans, use more if you want)
    1 small onion (chopped)
    2 cups shredded cheese
    mustard

    DIRECTIONS: Pre-heat oven 350 degrees
    In a 9″ x 13″ baking pan, break up hot dog buns (bite size) and spread in pan.
    Cut up hot dogs (about 1/2″ size) spread over buns.
    Spoon/spred chilli over hot dog/buns.
    Sprinkle onions over all.
    Squirt mustard over entire mixture (don’t spread…just make a few lines both ways across mixture)
    Cover with shredded cheese.
    Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly.
    (Hint: If using extra hot dogs & chilli, don’t add extra buns.)

    POT ROAST
    Your choice of beef (to fit crock-pot)
    1 pkg. dry Ranch dressing mix
    1 pkg. dry Italian dressing mix
    1 pkg. dry Brown Gravy mix
    1 cup water
    Put beef in pot.
    Mix together all the dry mixes….then add water …pour over meat and cover & cook on high 4-6 hours.
    Until meat is tender.
    The first time I mad it I didn’t have the Italian Dressing mix….so I added a pkg. of Onion Soup Mix….I have to say I liked that better.
    If you use more water you might want to add more Brown Gravy mix….to make a thicker sauce. Was gonna add
    potatoes and carrots…but never got around to it.

    Hi Erin, great question. How many meals per week is etrlneiy dependent on the type of fish in question and the age of the consumer. For example, farmed oysters, crayfish and haddock are safe to eat four or more times per month, whereas wahoo should only be consumed once per month for both younger and older children. These recommendations are based on the different mercury and PCB levels and the approximate body size of the individual. For information about specific meals per month recommendations, review our search by species guide for more complete information. Feel free to check back in with any more questions!

    Mercury is a neurotoxin that can imcpat the central nervous system, kidneys, immune system, and, in particular, brain development. Some studies show that mercury exposure can lower IQ levels in children. Whether your daughter is at risk is dependent upon her age (younger children are believed to more susceptible), how often she eats tuna, what species of tuna (some species have higher levels of mercury than others, like bluefin), among other factors. However, our bodies do get rid of mercury over time-try switching tuna for species that are lower in mercury like farmed tilapia or wild alaskan salmon.
