If you want a way to eat fish sticks that doesn't remind you of elementary school, then try them in a grown-up Fish Stick Po-boys style. My oldest daughter loves them, and I thought this would be a way to incorporate dinner for all of us without having to cook two different things. The fish sticks were B1G1 this week at Publix, and I got the Chicago Hard Rolls 6/$1.99. I love to keep frozen sweet potato fries in the freezer. They are one of the two things that I go to Sam's to get- the Alexia frozen sweet potato fries and the Birds Eye frozen whole green beans. They are perfect for getting dinner ready in a hurry, and the closest thing to farmers market fresh I have found. I think they're worth the extra trip to Sam's.

Stack 2-3 tomato slices on the bottoms, and the lettuce on the top. Finish with 4-5 fish sticks, depending on the size of your rolls.

I hope you enjoy this fun spin on dinner. Enjoy!
Sometimes we think we need to make everything from scratch and trust me, there are times when I love doing just that. Just remember if you want to mix up your family's menu plan and serve new and fun recipes sometimes it's best to use the K.I.S.S. method (no not the band). Keep It Simple Sweetie. Use premade meatballs or in this case fish sticks. You are a busy mom and wife so don't pressure yourself to make everything from scratch.
