Dinner - What Are You Having? - Page 94

post #1861 of 2722

Last night was tacos (switch from tostadas - must use those up soon, though) with refried beans, salsa, cheese, sour cream, lettuce and avocado. Tonight pizza bread in honor of DD2's b-day. Both my kids are officially in double digits as of today!!

Our cold wet day has now turned into a heat warning day dizzy.gif

 

So the soup is turning into a stir fry that I found on the campbells website. Uses tomato soup/pineapples/soy and brown sugar to make a sauce. Kids love it
 

I need help mamas! I've got some frozen rice/lentil mix I need to use up. It's spiced with masala and garlic/ginger. The kids don't love it plain and I can only figure to make soup with it. Any ideas on a casserole or something else?

Oh look, more left overs. And we'll be out tomorrow near the burger place he loves so I know well stop there. I plan to grill steaks this weekend, whenever the chicken and hot dogs run out. smile.gif

I made the Shrek noodles tonight - thank you for that idea. 

Broccoli, tomato, and carrot salad on the side. Pretty nutritious. 

I'm loving this thread!

When it's done it will shred pretty easily, then mix in your favorite barbecue sauce. Et voila, crockpot pulled pork. You can serve it on buns, or sometimes we serve it over jalapeno cornbread. With breakfast potatoes, poached egg (and hollandaise if you're so inclined) it makes a killer brunch dish, with a bloody mary. Chicagoans who have brunched at Broadway Cellars will know it as the "Ned Beatty". :-)

 

 

 

Thank you! That will be Sunday's meal.

We had pan-roasted chicken thighs and baked potatoes for an really early dinner before husband went to work, but I'm hungry again so I'm having the last of the fish sticks and some tater tots. And I will be having a vanilla soy icecream shake for dessert.

We had pasta alla norma (w/eggplant) from the Jamie Oliver recipe - yum!

 

Instead of ricotta salata, I used leftover feta and it was delicious.

DH made super yummy cheeseburgers and we were too lazy to make sides so we each had two cheeseburgers with loads of toppings. 

Tomorrow we eat out at a Greek restaurant using a groupon I have and the pork shoulder is defrosting for crock pot on Sunday. Have a great weekend!

We've not had them since I posted it. I think I *need* to get some nuts and basil and make it as a quick meal next week I need all that yummy healthy fat.

 

 

Thursday night I was letting the kids play on the front porch wondering what I was going to make for dinner Fri(kids weren't going to be home and we were going house hunting ALL day) and up walks my neighbor with a MASSIVE casserole of mac and cheese and a chocolate cake. My mother in law(who lives next door) had spread around the neighborhood that I was on bed rest and packing ect. Dh and I ate it for lunch and dinner yest and I still have half for today. Life made. luxlove.gif

 

Tonight DH is going straight from work to a gig and a friend of mine is coming to help me do a mass purge and pack day. The kids will prob be having veggie dogs and french fries and I'l; be eating more mac and cheese. I've also got to do meal planning since I want to clear out most of my freezer and stock pile

We're doing beans and franks tonight, probably with baked potatoes. Weekend food.

Chicken wings were $1.88/lb at the grocery store today, a weekend special. I bought two huge packs because we all love them here and sectioned out a few bags for the freezer. 

 

Tonight was grilled bbq chicken wings, grilled corn on the cob, cabbage ramen salad, broccoli, and watermelon. 

 

I got a bunch of basil in my produce box this week, so I'm going to make pesto tomorrow. I'm going to make it with sunflower seeds since that is what I have on hand. 

 

So tomorrow is grilled steaks and kebabs with shrimp, mushrooms, zucchini, onion and red pepper, fresh pesto sauce, pasta on the side to eat with the pesto or just with parm cheese, carrots, and watermelon.

Last night was an Arrested Development party, so for fans (anyone?), I will tell you what we had: chicken with chicken sauce, sausages ("bangers"), club sauce, cornballs, mayoneggs (yup, I did the mayonegg - may have had more than one whistling.gif), bread, candy beans, Bluth bananas (yum!) and ice cream sandwiches. The adult drink was vodka tonics. We forgot the juice boxes for the kids! But my family did dress up as characters, and our friends organized a trivia game. Really fun!

 

Tonight - roast chicken, but still coming up with vegetarian option - probably something easy like red lentil soup.

Tomorrow - DH out, so frozen cheese ravioli and salad.

OMG! I'm so jealous!! Best party ever

 

Tonight I'm using leftover lentils and rice and making a lentil loaf. I've got baked potatoes in the slow cooker,salad in the process and a saute of all the veggies about to go in the fridge.

Lentils seems to be a popular option - I'm considering making crockpot lentil soup. It's cold again here today. The weather is really a mess. We'll go 2-3 days of upper 80s, then 2-3 days of 50s. And it rains at least once every day. So, soup and bread methinks. And husband works tonight and doesn't really care for it, so I can enjoy it without having to make a second something for him, or just feel bad that's he's eating something he doesn't really like.

Well…not dinner, but I had a great lunch.

 

Lettuce wraps - smashed up left over veggies burger (homemade - rice, carrots, onion, sunflower seeds, egg) inside the rib of romaine lettuce with a soy/lime dipping sauce.

Sweet neighbor! That must have been such a blessing and relief! smile.gif

We did some grilled steak and chicken, the last of the potato salad, and green beans. So good and Ana loved her steak and beans. We got hubby's allergy test results Friday. His biggest offenders, wheat, eggs, whey, carrots and potatoes. SO we (meaning I) will be getting us over to a diet that excludes those things for a while. Arg! I need to be gluten free or my Crohn's gets bad, the Dr said Ana should keep away from gluten, eggs and dairy for a while, so we'll work that way now. In a way it's a pain, but in a way it's going to be easier because I'm not so worried who gets what.
