What are you making for dinner TONIGHT? - Page 4

post #61 of 400
Last night was take out--turtle had fatoosh and I had lentil soup with bread. We also had pickles and garlic dip. Yummy!

For dessert (for me), a mini ice cream sandwich, which is one of my guilty pleasures.

great idea!

I love the salad bar idea. Our CSA is just about to start and that will be just excellent for us!

Last night was mushroom and spinach gratin (with brown rice) and roasted asparagus. The asparagus was AMAZING.

last night, we had thai peanut noodles with veggies, and tonight we are going to have tacos from the NT cookbook. gonna have all the 'fixin's too, I think--lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, green onions, sliced olives, sour cream. Gonna just toss everything in the middle of the table with whole grain flour tortillas and stand back Dss is over this weekend, and he is not allowed to eat with his hands at his house, so we tend to be less formal when he is here.

Either a sheperd's pie or chicken stew over mashed potatoes. I can't decide whether i want my potatoes on the top or on the bottom.

Last night was lamb shanks slow cooked with vinegar, stewed tomatoes, and herbs. This was served with brown rice, with a couple spoonfuls of kefir on the side. DH likes his stewed meat with sour cream but I've been substituting yogurt or kefir. The broth around the shanks gelled overnight.

Tonight will be a version of Bi Bam Bop -- medium grain brown rice, gently sauteed watercress, mung bean sprouts, beef cooked in soy sauce, kim chee, fermented bean paste, and an egg over-easy. I put everything in pretty piles on individual plates, and then we mix it all up and dig in.

What a fantastic thread with so many great ideas for meals!!! I love it!!!

Anyway, we're just sitting here waiting for the Chinese food that we ordered to arrive.

LOL. We're going to have plenty of left-overs, too, but that should stretch to make at least another two meals.

And last night was calabacitas chilequiles--essentially, that's zucchini and summer squash diced and sauteed with garlic and onions, then layered with corn tortillas with a little bit of cheese and baked.

So. Good.

Mmmm Frog, that sounds delish!

Tonight we had spaghetti and garlic bread!

Tomorrow, I have a couple of hours to think! Maybe chicken something.

We're pretty boring around here tonight:

Trader Joe's fish sticks (the only all-natural ones I can find!), baked beans and a big salad.
post #76 of 400
Vegetable lasagna, salad and garlic parmesan bread
post #77 of 400
So fun to see what everyone is eating!!

Last night we had Bacon and Chicken Corn Chowder (which will also be today's lunch).

Tonight is Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas on Sprouted Tortillas with Homemade Salsa (which will then be Wednesday's lunch).

Cooking for 2 pretty much means we eat every meal twice: first for dinner and then for the next days' lunch.

Last night was amazing. We had hot and sour chickpeas over brown rice, green beans cooked in garlic and ginger, and, the VERY best part, these amazing vegetable patties--turtle modified a recipe from a Moosewood cookbook and they were just incredible. Chunks of potato studded with corn and peas, pressed in bread crumbs and pan fried.

I'm eating the chick peas and green beans for breakfast right now!

Last night was garlic-parmesan chicken tenders, sweet potato fries and roasted asparagus (the first of our CSA bounty came in last week!). Tonight I'm making Lentils Ole, with some brown rice, cheese, salsa and lettuce. The Lentils Ole is a new recipe I'm trying; I'll let y'all know how it comes out, if anyone's interested.

VikingKVinna, do you bake your fries or fry them? I've made them both ways and, frankly, I've been underwhelmed with myself.
