Vintage Chicken Continental Meal

For a family meal straight from your grandmother's recipe box, make your family a meal featuring chicken continental, saucy carrots and a lettuce salad tossed with your own homemade tomato soup French dressing. Chicken continental is a chicken and rice dish so you have your meat and grain in one dish. Add saucy carrots as your vegetable and toss a mixture of salad greens with your homemade dressing and you have a good, old-fashion meal to feed your family. This menu is perfect for a sit-down family dinner. If you follow this blog, you know I am a proponent of sit-down family meals. I believe it is a lost art in today's generation and one we as a society will eventually pay for. Whether you are a large family with five or six children or a single parent with one child, it is so important to take the time to sit down together at dinner and discuss the days events. It is amazing how much you can learn about your child's life. This is also the perfect opportunity for you to impart your ideas and morals to your child. So take the time. It is important!
