Dinner - What Are You Having? - Page 38

post #741 of 2741

Let's see....2 nights ago we had pork loin braised in salsa and chipotle.  I made one pan of mild and one of spicy.  I sauteed a quart of that corn my sis canned.  I sauteed in bacon grease and added onion and orange bell pepper.  Also sauteed some green cabbage, onions, and celery in lard (home made lard).  Rice for the ones who eat it.

 

Last night was spaghetti.  I am out of ground meat (already), so used some home made sausage in it.  Salad on the side.  Spaghetti squash in place of noodles for 2 of us.

 

Tonight I have no clue yet, lol.

Last night was lentil and brown rice tacos. Tonight DH and I are out of here! My mom is staying over with the kids and we have a jacuzzi room booked. Dinner will be at one of our favorite places and start with a stack of onion rings!

Last night, my 16 year old son cooked!  He and I have had lots of struggles lately, so it was extra special.  I went out for a bit and came home to (from scratch, no less) mushroom pork scallopini, whole wheat noodles tossed with some cheese, plain yogurt, salt/pepper, and butternut squash.  He is taking culinary classes in high school and actually offered to make dinner.  It was lovely and I was proud of him.

 

Tonight, my MIL gave us some fresh catfish that DH will cook outside so it doesn't stink up the house.  Plus mashed potatoes, I think.

 

eta:  Kitchensqueen--how do you dress your pasta salads?  Mine are always nasty and kinda dry.

Tonight for our "kid free" comfort food dinner (in my household of multiple food allergies), I made amazing Mac & cheese from the Daiya Foods website, with some little smokie sausages to go with it.  Tomorrow night will be beef & veggie stew with some gluten free/dairy free dinner rolls.  Mmmmmm!

I'm not big on the mayonnaise-based dressings for pasta or potato salads, so I always do vinaigrettes. Balsamic vinaigrette is our usual standby for the pasta.

 

 

Tonight for dinner, my husband cooked. He made broiled honey mustard chicken, buttered egg noodles and steamed cauliflower. And a bottle of Anchor Steam for each of us. Really tasty!

Tonight we had beef stroganoff and buckwheat... I've been eating so much fast food this week - it felt SO GOOD to eat at home!

Tonight we had a lovely Mexican buffet at my sister's rehearsal dinner.

Grilling honey lime chili marinated chicken for dinner, with some roasted or grilled veggies tonight

Tomorrow we may do some chili.... Pretty sure I have all the ingredients I need for it, just need to thaw the meAt and boil some beans. I usually do it in the crockpot but I am boycotting it untill I can replace it with a lead free one.

This week I am going to start on my postpartum cooking.... Beef stock, chicken curry soup, beef minestrone soup, harvest vegetable and chicken soup and maybe potato leek soup. I'll freeze half or more of everything.

I'm thinking sloppy joes and oven fries tonight... but I'm not totally certain yet. I'll see if there's anything compelling on special at the market when we go later this afternoon.

What's in your marinade? Thanks!

I got it from a friend on a freezer meal swap smile.gif I believe it was lime zest and juice, olive oil, grated ginger, a little chili powder, cilantro, honey and chicken.

It was SOOO good!

We had Boboli pizza with jarred sauce, green olives, mozzarella, and banana peppers.  DH and I split a non-alcoholic beer.

I decided to do the sloppy joes. Made oven fries and baked beans on the side. Tomorrow night husband is cooking his lemon and dill roasted chicken again - it was so good last time we decided it would be perfect for Sunday dinner. Not sure what he's going to do on the side with it, maybe some roasted cauliflower. We're starting to get in on a cauliflower kick.

Pupusas, curtido and salsa roja!

 

I can't make pupusas half as good as they do in El Salvador, but I still love them! There are no Salvadoran restaurants near us, so we have to make do! I tried a place in about 40 mins away in Tampa that did Mexican/Salvadoran and I didn't like it. I can make better pupusas (and I'm American).

Okay, jmarroq...school us!  I know salsa roja, but what's the rest? 

post #758 of 2741

Mmmm, pupusas!!!  My Salvadorian friend got me hooked too!

 

Quinoa spaghetti and meat sauce for us tonight.

post #759 of 2741

We were housebound for 2 days with this awful stomach virus that's moving though the schools, ick. We're mostly feeling better, so filling up the family with good foods today.

 

Breakfast: scrambled eggs, chicken breakfast sausage, sourdough toast and strawberries (this crazy sunny winter in CA has brought on halfway decent strawberries already and the kids are stoked).

 

Dinner: CP thai red curry with shrimp, potatoes, onion, carrots, zucchini and red pepper, peanut noodles with tofu and sauteed spinach, brown rice (I know we just had this recently, but I feel like something spicy to finish off these tummy icks)

Kids will have salmon, brown rice with butter and parm, and broccoli (ds won't eat Thai)

I am soaking Great Northern Beans this a.m. to make minestrone for tonight.  When DS goes down for a nap, hopefully I will make homemade corn bread.
