Question of the Week - Favorite Recipe

What is your favorite recipe to make with/for your family?

The question of the week sponsored by Multiples and More - when I read it I laughed at myself. My first thought was not of my favorite dish to make for my family (which happens to be spinach & ham quiche because I can get the kids to eat spinach) instead it was of the twins FAVORITE meal. Poor Man Surprise.
The recipe actually came from my hubby, the one and only he knew how to make before we were married. While it is not the most nutritious meal in the world, it can be made in 5 minutes or less, for about $0.20 per person, and the twins request it at least once a week (I have a once a week limit). Without further ado - POOR MAN SURPRISE
  • 2 packages of chicken flavored ramen noodles - cooked and drained
  • 2 slices of cheese
  • 3 hot dogs or bologna cut into bite size pieces (yes raw)
  • 2 large heaping spoonfuls of butter

Stir all ingredients together until well mixed and serve. Two packages feeds 7 year olds twins and a 2 year old, but no one else. Hubby has to make his own since he adds texas pete.


  1. lovely recipe, I'll check it out sometime ;)

  2. Oh my word. That sounds very similar to something that I fix for my husband, myself, and my daughter. Instead of hot dogs I use a can of chicken or tuna...and I add a handfull of frozen corn, and boiled potatoes that have been diced.

    I fix this chili that feeds husband, daughter, and myself......

    2 cans of red chili beans
    2 cans of diced tomatoes (drained)
    1 can of tomato sauce
    Frenches Chili-O seasonings packet

    dump all into a soup/chili pot and stir till bubbly.
