Husband went out on a rare game night with friends, but left me hot wing-style chicken thighs in the crockpot and cornbread. I might mash up some potatoes to go alongside too.

So I ended up with a major migraine today (probably from the combo of being sick and allergies) so DH picked up something on the way home. I love having an understanding husband!
Tomorrow DH has duty so Ill be doing the spaghetti. He won't mind, hes kind of tired of spaghetti
Last night was a one-pan skillet dinner - chicken breasts (cut into bite sized pieces and seasoned), asparagus, yellow pepper, onion, garlic and couscous (I used chicken stock instead of water to cook the cous cous in the same pan) - YUMMY!!
Tonight I'm thinking about "faux" chicken parm (brown seasoned thin sliced breasts, cover w/ marinara and simmer a bit, serve over spelt pasta and melt a bit of Italian cheese over it before serving) - that with a green salad
Oki - glad your husband helped you out! Migraines are the WORST!!
Thanks mamas I am doing ok. He is away now to have a meeting with head of the university... I am down but holding my head up
Last night we had broiled pork chops and orzo. Tonight we're doing cod - we'll likely poach it in a little white wine with tapenade and scallions and maybe sun dried tomatoes. Not sure what we'll have on the side - maybe some roasted potatoes.
Exciting, this is my first time posting here! Tonight is vegetarian chill over french fries, corn on the cob, and corn bread muffins. Yummm. The first trimester aversion to *everything* is finally starting to wear off, yesss.
I'm making Tom Kha Gai (thai coconut soup), I even went to a specialty store to get fresh lemongrass for it. I'm making it with some chicken and tofu and will also add mushrooms, fresh asparagus I need to use and some rice sticks. Probably some veggie spring rolls, too. I have a scratchy throat and a stuffy head and hoping this makes me feel better.
I'll make the kids chicken tenders, sweet potato fries, broccoli and pears.
I need to work on my menu plan for the week.
Welcome Orange Moon! This thread has helped me a lot your dinner sounds delish!!!
CP bbq chicken wings
roasted vegetables: red potatoes, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, brussels sprouts, red pepper
broccoli and pears for kids
I think I'll make some banana bread today, too. I have a bunch that bruised quickly and needs to be used up.
Bratwursts and mashed potatoes here tonight. Things have been hectic here lately and dinner is suffering, so we're planning some crock pot and make ahead stuff for this week - tomorrow is crock pot beef stew and Wednesday probably meat loaf.
I cooked up a bag of black beans today, so we're having fish tacos: breaded cod, refried black beans, lightly fried corn tortillas, cheese, sour cream, chopped lettuce, tomato and avocado. Kids will also have carrots and pears.
I started making myself a green smoothie everyday for breakfast and am loving it, but I am going through so much produce! I need to figure out a way to fit even more fruit into the grocery budget, the added greens expense isn't bad, but the fruit is proving to be a challenge.
yummy asparagus pasta!!!
One of my favorite meals....I finally cooked to :)
I keep meaning to make Ina Garten's lemon sole again, so maybe I'll do that tonight with a side of asparagus, and a baguette.
However, ive NEVER eaten a Brussels sprout, and ive only cooked asparagus a couple of times.... any suggestions?
Put in a pan with olive oil, garlic and sprinkle of salt- cook till tender- I think about 10-15 min....
Put over penne pasta.
Sprinkle parm cheese
SO SO SO GOOD! If pasta is dry add some extra olive oil - it is one of my kids favorite foods!
I searched here, and ended up trying the Brussels sprouts sauteed with bacon.... not so great, lol.... ds is loving them raw though
