A few years ago, when we first moved to Minnesota, we moved in with my In-Laws until we could find a home to purchase.

It was a difficult decision, since no one really wants to move back in with their parents, but seeing as how we were moving from out of state, we really didn’t want to get locked into an apartment as we were trying to purchase a home.

When I used to tell people that we are currently living with my in-laws, I would get a lot of, “We’ll pray for you”, or “Wow, you are brave!”  comments.

In reality, it was 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 loved it!

One of the best things was that my kids got so much more attention with 4 adults around.



There was 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 would 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.




This dish tends to be something she whips up and serves to company because it requires very little mess in the kitchen, looks pretty and tastes treat.

Not to mention it’s quick to whip up.  No more slaving away at the stove for hours before company comes over.

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!

Plus it’s one of those quick and easy weeknight meals that even my kids like eating!

For anyone wanting to try something new, I say 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!

I also have to give a shout out to the ability this meal has to reheat well.

Perfect for the office as a leftovers meal and everyone will wonder what delicious dish they are smelling!
