What a fun thread! I just have one question:


So here's ours:

White bean, swiss chard and sausage soup, homemade WW bread
Chicken and black bean enchiladas
roast chicken, stuffing, gravy, peas
Dahl (from a mix; it was ) with brown rice
Broccoli-cheddar soup, more WW bread

Not one of my most stellar runs. Tonight's even less impressive: tuna-noodle casserole : But I think I'm also going to make some homemade corn tortilla chips and black bean dip, for snacking on during Lost tonight.

We cook from scratch too (DH and I both do the cooking) so we made everything from scratch except the pasta. We also grew the tomatoes, green beans, kale, and zucchini we used in a bunch of the recipes. Here are our last five dinners (minus the trip to Applebee’s with my parents in which we ate junk food) :

Tues- Black bean veggie burgers and sweet potato oven fries
Monday- Blackeyed pea and kale soup with WW bread fresh from the oven
Sunday- Whole wheat pasta and cheese sauce (hollandaise sauce for the babe, who is allergic to dairy) and green bean and tomato salad - we took this to a family dinner with the IL’s
Friday- Vegetable Chili and skillet cornbread
Thursday- Vegan lasagna (with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese for those interested)

I would be happy to share any of the recipes, if someone wants them.

Fun : )

I love to talk about food! What a fun thread!
My meal preparations are spotty since I work out of the home and it's only me and my 4 yr old son.

Tonight's menu:
Grilled veggie pizza

Last night (Tuesday):
Hummus, spinach and sundried tomato tacos (corn tortillas). Mango pineapple smoothies for dessert.

Monday night:

Guacamole and whole-grain crackers as an appetizer
Linguine with mushrooms, tofu, bell peppers, tomatoes and garlic

Sunday night:
Portabella mushrooms sauteed in garlic/olive oil. I think this is all we ate..? Oh yea! Bowls of cereal with rice milk for bedtime snack. That doesn't count as meal preparation does it? :LOL

Saturday: Raw feast! Nori "tacos" and salad
Spring greens, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, avocados, nori, fresh tomatoes, onions

It's rainy and nasty out which makes my food obsession soar! This thread is perfect therapy. Here goes:

"Cream" of Brocoli soup made with broc, and 1 green pepper from our garden & Grilled cheese sandwiches (I thicken with roux made with skim milk but I defy you tell the difference!)

Straight up cheese lasagna

Baked acorn squash stuffed with bacon, walnuts, apples, onions and breadcrumbs

Potato leek soup & toasted peasant bread spread with pesto

Burgers and dogs on the grill, the last BBQ of the season

I would REALLY like the rice pudding w/ bluberries and white bean, swiss chard soup recipes posted please

Chicken fajitas, with lots of peppers and onions.

Braised pork loin with root vegetables and squash.

Roasted chicken stew with dumplings.

Penne with a sauté of plum tomatoes, garlic, white wine, fresh basil, and chicken breast.
(with lots of parmesan)

Honey-soy-ginger chicken served over cold peanut-lime-sesame noodles with basil.

My, we eat a lot of chicken!

Tonight I'm making a roasted chicken with root vegetables and cream cheese/chive smashed potatoes.
I wish we were having anything with baked beans, instead. Sigh.
