We're doing pizza/movie night early this week so that's what the boys are having and dh and I will probably have leftover lasagna.

Yikes- I am behind!!


We went away for the last 6 days so ate some on the road-crap but also had awesome meals at the relative.  All in all we probably spent less then if we had stayed home and I had to grocery shop.


Tonight: roasted pork loin with cumin/marmalade glaze, cauliflower and basmati rice

Tomorrow (xmas eve!): meat fondue, homemade bread, mixed green salad, champagne!

Saturday (xmas!!): dinner at a friends, we are bringing salad and baked brie

Sunday: roast turkey breast and all the trimmings

Monday: leftovers-maybe turkey potpie??

Well the storm here put a crimp in our plans.  Spent Sunday afternoon sledding as the storm approached and then had snack at a friends, no "real" dinner.  Monday was a wash, digging out from over a foot of snow, an afternoon of sledding, then simple omelets for dinner.  Here is how the rest of the week plays out....


Tonight: mix match of different leftovers both in the fridge and in the freezer.  Finally made it to the grocery store today but still want to clean out the fridge

Tomorrow: finally get our roast turkey dinner with all the fixins

Thursday: Turkey pot pie

Friday (New years eve!!): we have no plans this year so kind of lonely greensad.gif  thinking some good comfort food.  Maybe meatloaf??

We ended up eating out last night, but super cheap since dh wasn't with us.


Tonight is pancakes for the boys, leftover ham for me.

post #90 of 94

we got back last night and need to go shopping today. planning to have the following over the few days until months end...


12-28 we had ww rotini with roasted tomato and garlic sauce with pureed spinach and onions(that unknowingly went in the sauce without notice)

12-29 homemade veg pizza (will be buying premade crust) kids and dh may add some homemade pepperoni

12-30 roast chicken with mediteranean quinoa salad

12-31 oil and cheese fondue (it would probably be cheaper to eat out!)


I enjoy seeing what others are eating for dinner and this really pushes me to plan my meals (as well as minimizing eating out) love it!

Tonight will be steak, baked potatoes and a green veggie.

Ok so last day of December, how'd everyone do?


I did terrible!  We ate out 5 times, though once was free.  December's a hard month to do this!  On to January.


Tonight we're having steak, baked potatoes and broccoli.

We did pretty good this month!  January will be my challenge with  the winter doldrums.  Has anyone set up a thread for Jan 2011??
