Easy, Kid-Friendly Meals

I'm sure we've all tried these sometime, but I had forgotten about them until recently and my kids go crazy over them. So I thought I would share. Enjoy!!! English Muffin Pizza's
English Muffins (in half)
pizza or spaghetti sauce
pepperoni (my kids love the mini ones!)
Layer and bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes. Yummy, easy lunch!
Pigs in a Blanket, or Toes in a Bandaid
Rhodes roll dough, thawed
lil smokies
Cut rolls into 3 or 4 strips and then make a snake and wrap around lil smokies. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Sooooo fun! Don't forget to dunk 'em in ketchup, mustard or honey mustard. (Thanks LeAnn for the recipe from last Halloween, we make these regularly. Actually, my kids beg for these!)

2 cans cream of chicken
16 oz sour cream

Cook the 3-4 chicken breast.
In a large bowl combine, the chicken, the cream of chicken soup,
the sour cream, and the poppy seeds.
Now there are two ways you can do the rice,
either line the bottom of a 9x13 pan, OR
add it to the mixture above.
Make sure you spray the 9x13 pan.
Then add mixture, and crush the roll of ritz crackers on top
