    Our favorite is pot roast in the crock pot with potatoes, carrots, and onions- add a package of fry ranch, dry Italian seasoning, and dry brown gravy and a little water.  So good!

    My family’s go-to recipe is Chicken LoMein.  You use the low sodium ramen noodles, chicken, veggies and Low sodium soy sauce.  It’s so easy and delicious!  I make it when we are in a hurry to eat and then leave.

    Tator-tot casserole with a side of wilted lettuce is a continual request and obvious hit with my grown children and now grandkids. Brown hamburger or turkey.  Add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 soup can of water, 1 dry packet of Lipton dry onion soup mix and mix.  Cover with tater tots.  Bake at 350 for approximately 1 hour.  I typically cover mine with foil and check periodically.  Occasionally I will add either a can of green beans or corn and top with shredded cheese during the last 15 minutes of baking.  This will give you all of your mealtime ingredients in one!  If anyone would like the wilted lettuce recipe, e-mail me at
