I'll take the win. :-) But your double-whammy slow cooker and rice cooker win was a far better win than mine.

I have the Thai noodle soup in the crockpot right now. I threw in a box of veg stock, a can of coconut milk, about 2 T. Thai red curry paste, maybe 2 t. fish sauce, about 1/4 chopped onion, a handful of cilantro, and some frozen mixed veg/frozen green beans. Will cut up a lime to squeeze in when it's done. I will also prepare the rice noodles on the side so they don't get mushy. Plus chicken on the side for DH and my non-curry-eating DD2.

I'm making meatloaf, mashed potatoes and canned green beans. Once I can get up from the sleeping baby on top of me. She is napping late, but she needed it!
Yesterday we had Parmesan crusted chicken, more mashed potatoes - but these are garlic Parmesan and Good, and salad.
Tomorrow will be left overs.

Okay. Last night we did a baked Mac and cheese with canned corn and steamed zucchini. Tonight is cheeseburgers on squishy potato buns with a salad. Tomorrow, I think we'll just do baked beans with brown-bread-from-a-can and leftover veggies. Butternut squash soup with sourdough later in the week. I'm actually managing to make meals this week instead of feeding my daughter eggs and then gorging on Mac and cheese from a box. Things are looking up!

Love this tread! Tonight we had winter veggie soup. turnips, carrots, parsnips, rutabaga and sweet potato with white beans and the last bag of tomato juice from the garden:( it was delish. We also had French bread with it. Tomorrow will be breakfast for supper night since its yoga night... my night to run away! smile.gif

Wednesday is my yoga day too - no idea what we're planning for dinner yet though. Tonight I threw together a sausage and kale pasta, but didn't add white beans because husband is tired of beans. It was okay, but I really missed the beans!

Awwww, miss those days! 10-yr. old had a bad dream and came in our bed last night. Not the same!! (no room for my arms!!)

 

PS Thai soup turned out well. I'm on a crock pot roll, so I think I will continue it today with Mexican casserole. Beans, tortillas and random odds and ends layered and cooked in the slow cooker. I have a bunch of avocados from a veg box, so those can be on the side. Plain black beans & sour cream for DD2 who doesn't like casseroles.

We made bean, rice and ground turkey tacos for dinner tonight - something quick before I had yoga earlier.

Seems to be a theme here... smile.gif
Making bean and rice and veggie burritos. Its the last night before grocery day so we have lots of odd and ends vegetables that need to be used.

Yesterday was the planned left overs, though I had cereal. My stomach wasn't feeling great.
Tonight will be beef stew, already in the crockpot. Planning to make cornbread with it too. Mmmm Perfect weather for it, we have a whole 11º right now. And my kitchen water is frozen. Grr Glad it's his day off work, he can fix it.

Husband made "man-food" for dinner - pigs in a blanket (hot dogs wrapped in croissants) and baked beans. Actually pretty tasty. :-)

Publix Greenwise Chicken Sausage (Italian, mild) with green bell peppers, onions, red potatoes, and minced garlic, cut up and placed in glass baking dish with lots of extra virgin olive oil and a splash of chicken broth, sea salt and a sprinkle of various italian style herbs....roasted uncovered for about 40 mins at 425. Served with leftover rice and green beans for my son, and cabbage salad for my daughter and I. Not bad!!

Tonight either pasta alla norma or baked eggplant parmesan to use up an eggplant that came in a vegetable box I got this week. I guess I didn't plan that well, because tomorrow is pasta bolognese at my sister's. May rethink!

Tonight I pulled leftover bolognese out of the freezer for myself, since husband is working.

My stomach is actually a little upset this evening; I'm hoping I don't have a stomach bug. Husband is working and Little Man has already eaten, so I have no idea what I'm going to have. Maybe a baked potato. So far, it's just been hot tea...

 

Tomorrow husband has the day off work, so we're doing potatoes and corned beef in the crockpot, so it's ready when we get back from the train show we're going to.

Wow, I haven't been here for awhile. Life has been so busy lately.

 

While I have been limiting gluten for myself for over a year, I never limited the kids. Now we are trying a mostly gluten free diet with ds7.5 to see if it helps with ADD type behaviors, it's the only "lifestyle change" we haven't made with him. In the last 6 months he finally has been less selective with his eating, so I figured it was time. It hasn't been too hard, thank goodness for Trader Joe's, it has cheap brown rice pasta, etc, and Amazon has good bulk deals on items like gf baking mix.

 

With the drought here in CA, I fear food prices are going to sky rocket. It's finally rained all weekend, but it barely touches the problem.

 

Last night the kids were at my parents for the night and we had steaks with mushrooms and onions, roasted red potatoes and asparagus, and champagne.

 

Tonight is sesame chicken (for an easy, cheap, and tasty recipe on Budget Bytes), rice, broccoli and clementines. 

 

On the menu this week:

Ground beef tacos, black beans, corn tortillas, salad with avocado and tomato, carrots and fruit

Spaghetti (brown rice) and meatballs with zucchini, mushroom and bell pepper in the sauce, zucchini noodles, fruit

Waffles (gf), sausages, eggs, and fruit/Chicken, cauliflower, and chick pea indian style curry, quinoa

Bbq chicken in the CP, roasted sweet potatoes, asparagus, broccoli and fruit

Steaks, roasted sweet potatoes, asparagus, broccoli and fruit

Last night we had vegetarian chili.

I've been trying to limit my families gluten intake also, with the ultimate goal of being completely gf eventually. My dh is the resistant one in my house. He loves his cereal in the am. I'm not sure I'll be able to convince him to give it up smile.gif can you shop trader joes online?

I love meal planning and cooking too. It's great to see what everyone's eating and to get some inspiration!

 

Yesterday we had spinach lasagna rolls for lunch and a big romaine salad with lots of chopped up veggies and a red wine vin dressing. Here's the recipe I used for the lasagna rolls. I used 1.5 jars of store bought marinara and I doubled the frozen spinach.

 

For dinner I made a good old fashioned chicken and vegetable soup. No real recipe on this one, just garlic, onion, 2 leeks, 6 carrots, 6 celery stalks, 2 bunches of dinosaur kale :), chix broth, some springs of thyme, a bay leaf, S&P and a whole rotisserie chicken. It was delicious and I think it would be great with some brown rice or noodles in it too if I wanted to make it more substantial but really there was no need.

Tonight is going to be chicken, broccoli and sweet potatoes. Very simple but it's my 3 year old's favorite. she always has seconds of everything.
