Hot wings in the crockpot and chips here tonight, with brownies for dessert. Yeah, junk food fest at our house tonight. :-)
Dinner - What Are You Having? - Page 40
For superbowl (um, I cannot get out of this in my house, lol), I made about 70 cream cheese stuffed jalapeno peppers wrapped in bacon, pizza stuffed mushrooms, clam stuffed mushrooms (about 30 of each), devils on horseback (SO GOOD), taco platter (layered thing w/cream cheese and sour cream seasoned w/tex mex flavors on bottom, refried beans, guacamole, salsa, lettuce, cheese, olives), and 2 kinds of chicken wings. All was grain free and not one person missed them. We ate leftovers the next night for supper.
The night before superbowl we had collard greens w/smoked pork, baked apples and butternut squash, smoked chicken legs, and oranges.
Last night we had chicken and veggie soup.
Tonight...not sure yet, but maybe breakfast for supper. I have some pork sausage and lots of eggs. Maybe I'll have one of the kids make some pancakes, too. Or I'll do biscuits and sausage gravy..
Last night was spaghetti, garlic bread, and green beans
The beans and sauce were home-canned from our garden. I chopped up the leftover zucchini and onions and smashed the leftover sweet potatoes from the night before and added them to the sauce. It was tasty!
Right now I have chicken broth going in the crock pot. I found a carcass in the freezer and had a bag of veggie trimmings. Tonight I will be Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole with broccoli on the side.
Tomorrow will be spaghetti pie and some sort of veggie.
Homemade pizza: just sausage on kids' side, sausage, peppers and mushrooms on dh's side (chopped sauteed spinach in the sauce)
Cobb salad for dh and I: mixed greens, baby spinach, chicken breast, bacon, eggs, tomato, avocado, blue cheese, warm vinaigrette
Carrots, celery and pears for kids
We had crap from our country store last night. I had chili cheese fries (grain free, lol), and a salad. 2 kids had chili cheese dogs, my oldest dd ate what I did, my son had a chicken strip dinner (and half of my chili cheese fries, the little pig), and my dh had some of my salad, fries, and chicken strips. 2 kids had onion rings.
tonight we're going to try the new Thai place, I think. Then we're done eating out for awhile.
Wednesday: Salmon, roasted German Butterball potatoes, and a salad (my birthday dinner- YUM!).
Thursday: More chili and cornbread with friends, this time with roasted sweet potatoes and a salad.
Tonight: We had burgers, tater tots, and a salad again (oh and some left over sweet potatoes, too).
Tomorrow is farmer's market day.... so, we'll see what looks good!
We had the best chicken curry for lunch, and I just "winged it" so I hope I can make it again sometime. It had apples in it and it came out so deliciously sweet.
For dinner we are having breakfast: french toast casserole, fried apples (we have a lot of apples we need to use up), and bacon.
Tonight Whole wheat spaghetti & meatballs with salad
Mon: Cobb salad & homemade bread
Tue: Venison steak with red wine reduction, homemade gnocci in parsnip cream, and sauteed spinach with garlic...I love making gourmet food at home for cheap!
Wed: Taco-ish soup following this recipe except I use quinoa instead of cous cous & I have pinto beans that I cooked in the freezer to use up instead of kidney beans & homemade stock. Quesadillas & salsa & sour cream to go with it.
Thurs: Pork chops red cabbage & potatoes *if anyone has a good recipe I could use some ideas* I'm thinking of using balsamic in lightly sauteed cabbage with onions & garlic...
Fri: Chicken Cordon Bleu, asparagus and salad
Sat: We won't be home for dinner
We had curry last night- it was incredible- third time in the last week and a half we made it- this time we added broccoli- very very good.
I went to grocery store friday finally!!! I got salmon, tilapia, hamburger, a bag of shrimp, tortellini and stuffed shells and stuff to make french onion soup.
