The tamarind chickpeas I made a few nights ago were AWESOME. I'm blending the leftovers into hummus for lunch today and making a hummus pizza on naan with olives/peppers and tomatoes.

 

Last night for dinner we had tofu stir fry in pb sauce on egg noodles and salad with leftover beets. It's a quick meal all the kids eat w-out an issue

 

Tonight is BBQ black eyed peas. Haven't decided what I'm making with it. Ds has been bugging for hasselback potatoes and since the oven will be on anyways I may indulge him. We'll have it with salad

I've decided with the black eyed peas to go semi traditional. We're having corn bread,a saute of okra,green beans,corn and black olives and a massive salad that I basically threw whatever I found in the fridge into.

I'm making mom's chicken paprikás with egg noodles. Maybe I'll do a quick salad for starters.

My husband did a red wine based beef stew in the crockpot for dinner before he went to work. I made some noodles when I got home to serve it over. Turned out pretty good.

We had roasted chicken and vegetables (red potatoes, parsnips, carrots, onions, celery). Tossed all of it with white wine, herbes de provence, sea salt, white pepper, and minced garlic, squeezed lemon juice over the top. The chicken was a little dry - I might try tenting it inside parchment paper next time. It was good though, and different than anything else I've ever made.

Yesterday was Thai green curry with vegetables and tofu over rice. Today was pasta and a jar of sauce with some ground beef. I helped cater a healthy lunch for seniors today, so I have leftover roasted potatoes, sauteed carrots and asparagus, and a zucchini/tomato/pepper mix that I need to work into dinner tomorrow night if it doesn't get eaten in lunches.

Tonight I will use the leftover vegetables from the senior lunch, thaw some soup from the freezer, and fry up an egg for anyone who complains.

Tonight was "shrek noodles" which is what the kids call pasta with a dairy free avocado sauce. They devour it and always have seconds. We had it with salad. It's such a quick meal I love it

Try it in the crockpot - it basically comes out like rotisserie chicken. If you do the veg roasted in the oven, just elevate the chicken in the crockpot on a thick ring of aluminum foil, and go easy on the white wine - a half cup should be sufficient. When doing "roasted" chicken in the crockpot you don't typically add any liquid, so when you do add a little for flavor make sure it's not a lot. We do it fairly frequently and I actually prefer whole chicken this way instead of oven roasted - it's so juicy, moist and tender you won't believe it. 

 

I had leftover beef stew this evening that husband made the other night - husband at work this evening.

How do you make your avocado sauce?

I don't really have a "recipe" I just blend some cloves of garlic,walnuts,2 avocado,half an onion,a bunch of fresh basil with some olive oil and lemon juice. Then add almond milk if I need to thin it out. I then toss it with the cooked noodles to take a bit of the major spice out of the garlic but I never "cook" the sauce. Kids like it topped with black olives and sliced cherry tomatoes.

It takes longer to cook the noodles then make the sauce. An actual 10 min recipe. Love it

The big kids are gone until tomorrow night so last night was a grazing dinner. Olives,goats milk cheese,salsa,hummus,chips ect

 

I'm *hoping* dh brings me home the red thai curry special from my fave thai place tonight. It's been closed for weeks and baby in belly is getting bitter!!!!

 

Tomorrow we go to pick up the kids. We are making dinner for my family while there. We are planning cheese ravioli for the adults and plain pasta for the kids. With a huge salad with pistachios,an olive plate and a strawberry pie.

We had the taquitos today and left overs last night. I forget what I have down for tomorrow. Meatloaf?

we didn't like the corn too much, I received a batch from a neighbor and used it up but it gave me indigestion :( we ordinarily don't eat corn.
