oh my- a man gave me a whole huge box of turnips - not sure what to do with them...
I like them raw- occasionally- and roasted some- but there is a ton- I gave some away but still so many
You can mash them, or add them to soups and stews.
Tonight we're doing bacon and whiskey chili. And I've got turkey stock simmering on the stove - we'll probably do turkey noodle soup later this week.
Pickled turnips? I bought some at a Middle Eastern store - they are a wild pink color and spicy. The ones I bought were artificially colored, but here is a recipe that uses beets:
That sounds fantastic! I need to remember this.
Tonight we had glazed tempeh, herbed orzo and green beans.
Last night was a very quick tofu, bok choi and carrot stirfry with sesame oil noodles.
We have done a ton of soup this week. Turkey soup, bacon and whiskey chili, and provencal-style beef stew. One night husband made cornmeal breaded chicken and Spanish rice for a change. Tonight I wanted soup again since I had a dentist appointment this afternoon, but husband is souped out, so we did a rare split dinner - I made a small batch of "fancy" chicken noodle soup for myself - with white wine poached chicken, herbs de provence and plenty of garlic. For husband, we put the other chicken breasts on the grill, and threw on a red bell pepper that we needed to use up. He'll probably have some frozen steamed veg with it too.
Last night DH & I had a minestrone type soup and the boys had flatbread pizzas
Tonight we are having refried bean tacos and Mexican rice. I thought I had chorizo for DH & I to put on our tacos but realized we were out after I already started sauteeing an onion, so I just added some chili powder to it
Tomorrow we will be at a memorial service for my Grandpa in the afternoon with a pot luck lunch (I am takeing pinto beans) and then a pot luck (though I will probably show up empty handed) birthday party for a friend in the evening, so who knows what we will end up with.
We went out to lunch yesterday and snacked for dinner. On Friday, I fed the kids grilled cheese sandwiches, oven fries, pears and carrots and made dh and I chicken curry and chips (over oven fries, like we had in Ireland).
Tonight, we're having chicken parmigiana with spaghetti and sauteed spinach. The recipe made a ton of sauce so it will be great to have with spaghetti squash for lunch.
On the menu, not a very interesting week:
Steak with sauteed onions and mushrooms, roasted sweet potatoes, carrots and brussels sprouts, fruit
Kielbasa sauteed with onions, peppers and red cabbage, mashed potatoes, broccoli and fruit
Foil baked red snapper with garlic and onion, couscous, baked stuffed delicata squash, broccoli and fruit
Fish tacos in corn tortillas, black beans, salad, fruit
Baked bbq split chicken, roasted sweet and red potatoes and brussels sprouts, broccoli and fruit
Sorry for your loss, maciascl.
I haven't made up a menu for this week yet, but I am sorely tempted to drive over the Korean market since we are out of the stuff I stock up on there - soba noodles, Japanese rice, red pepper paste, kimchi, and some other stuff. If so, we might have vegetable dumplings, soup & rice for dinner, or maybe curry tofu & rice. My DH and DD2 want to try to go vegetarian at home for a while (not necessarily when we go out), so I need to rethink some menus. DD1 is already vegetarian, so actually this would make feeding everyone a bit easier.
So didn't make it to the store I wanted to go to. We had green curry with tofu & potato/sweet potato/cauliflower/baby corn and rice. Picked up some fish sticks and tater tots for tomorrow since it's my school night. Hopefully back to healthier stuff Weds.! If I'm as busy as I think I will be with work this week, Weds. and Thu. will be rice & beans/quesadillas and pasta night.
KQ you have such fancy names for your dishes. I am going to start putting a foreign country in front of the name of my dinners:) TOnight we had cambells ala new england clam chowder lol:) Just teasing.
Well we really did have canned soup oh the shame. In my defense we did eat oranges to. And I had a salad with v/o.
We did not get home even till after 7:00./..
Hahaha they are actually different than Swedish meatballs - spices are different. :-)
Thank you Ragana!
I really need to get back into planning a week of meals at a time. Going night to night is not working well.
Last night was fried rice, sesame oil noodles, and spring rolls.
Tonight we had spaghetti and soysage.
Tomorrow....who knows! I am tired of being so uninspired, nothing ever sounds good. I guess I need to go back and read the last few pages of posts for some ideas.
I got a red cabbage in our produce delivery yesterday, so tonight I made a pork shoulder roast in the CP with french onion soup and mushrooms, sauteed sweet and sour red cabbage, mashed potatoes, carrots and pears. Every time I make cabbage like this, I think of the movie "A Christmas Story" when Ralphie makes a face while stirring a big pot of cabbage.
I also made some cranberry bread today.
