The "What's For Dinner" Thread

post #1 of 695
Thread Starter 
I love hearing what everyone is having for dinner, and I get great ideas, so I thought we could start one in this forum.

Last night I made marinated veggie kabobs (dh's had some beef but mine had tofu). I think next time I would make them without the tofu though and just have the veggies.

Tonight we are having eggplant parmegan. I've never had it before so I'm hoping it tastes good!!! I think with it I'm going to make sundried tomato couscous and a green salad.

Last night I made baked egg roll and chinese style veggies and rice.

I have no idea what I'll make tonight. Really I just wish we had the money to eat out, I don't feel like cooking. It's hot in my kitchen and my feet and ankles swell. Opps sorry for the whine.

Last night we had steamed quinoa, and a thai yellow curry with chickpeas and veggies fresh from our garden! It was so good- just ate leftovers for lunch.

Tonight we are having fresh greens salad with anasazi beans, salsa, shredded raw cheddar, snow peas, beets, artichokes and summer squash- all the produce is fresh from our garden except the artichokes which are out of my co-worker's garden. White balsamic vinagrette with flax and olive oil. On the side- homemade whole grain bread and butter.

Now I am hungry!

Right there with ya girlfriend. I SO do not want to go cook. Thus, I am procrastinating by typing on the computer!

Wow - we're such diverse cooks and it all sounds so healthy AND delicious!

It's also too hot here to do much cooking.

Last night we made vegan quesadillas (WW tortillas for me, white for DH, caramelized onion and fresh organic corn filling, refried pinto beans, Vegan Gourmet cheese) with homemade guacamole and locally made salsa. I also made Mojitos (soda water, agave nectar, fresh spearmint leaves, lime juice, and rum).

The night before, I did baked Mac n Cheese and huge salads (romaine, heirloom tomato, avocado, endive, red onion, spinach).

Tonight I was really tired and DH had lots of work so we had a lazy supper. I made 2 quesadillas for myself with the leftovers from last night and he had a sandwich with baked tofu, romaine, and red onion on a fresh french roll with vegenaise.

Tomorrow, we're going to make some Pho (Vietnamese soup) as part of this vegan cookalong I'm part of.

OMG we go through the same freaking thing. Except we do peas not green beans. I swear it is all that kid want to eat. I give it to him for lunch everyday and you'd think that would be enough.

Isosmom- That millet stuffed zucchini sounds so good!! We have tons of zukes at the moment. Did you use a recipe or just throw it together? My kids love millet, but are ambivalent about cooked zucchini- so I am thinking maybe they would go for it.

Actually pretty much everything on this list is making me hungry.

There is a recurring theme to our meals- we are frantically eating our garden produce. We had whole grain pasta elbows with summer squash, garlic tops, artichoke hearts, shelled peas, assorted herbs, and a white balsamic vinagrette made with flax and olive oil. Topped with a sprinkle of raw milk parmesan. Plus fresh raspberries.

Tonight- fresh baby greens with balsamic vinagrette topped with lentil and bulgar salad (this salad comes out a lot like tabbouleh plus lentils). We will probably have more raspberries too, since DH and the kids picked two flats worth yesterday

I made pan fried tofu (I lightly bread it with seasoned flour/nutritional yeast), rice & gravy (Yum, such a comfort food), corn on the cob and salad.

Reading this thread always makes me hungry and want to eat dinner at everyone's houses.
