When I tell people that we are currently living with my in-laws, I get a lot of, “We’ll pray for you”, or “Wow, you are brave!” comments. In reality, it’s quite on the contrary.
You see, my in-laws are AMAZING. LOVE LOVE LOVE them. And though I was nervous about living with them for a few months after we moved to their state and while we looked for a house to buy, it has been such a great experience. I can’t vouch for them, but for us, we’ve loved it!
One of the best things is that my kids get so much more attention with 4 adults around. There is ALWAYS someone to play with, snuggle with or watch a movie with. And lucky me, my MIL is an amazing cook (as I’m sure you’ve noticed). We trade off on cooking and she’s taught me a lot and introduced me to many dishes that I otherwise would have avoided but have absolutely loved – like this Chicken Parmesan with Mushrooms dish. Mmm, Mmm Good!
One dish that she has made several times that we love is this Chicken Chop Suey. It’s easy to make, tastes great and something different than the every day same old rut that we can often find ourselves falling into!
So why not venture out and try something new this week for dinner. It’s an easy dish that your whole family will love! And if you aren’t a bean sprout person, leave them out. They add a little crunch but not a substantial amount of flavor so you wont be missing anything other than your daily veggie if you leave it out!
