What's For Dinner Tonight? (February) - Page 3

post #41 of 243
Last night we had Razor clams for the first time. They were cleaned and breaded- they took about 1 minuet to saute! Delicious! We also had rice and steamed carrots and green beans with a Dijon mustard vinaigrette. :

Baked beans, caramelized cabbage, and homefries. Brownies for dessert if I get off the computer and go bake 'em!

Last night was a clean-out-the-fridge risotto with some browned sausage, a lot of spinach, some cubes of pesto from the freezer, extra garlic, cubed mozzarella, and feta cheese. It was delicious.

Tonight will be either whatever the BFF brings home from the Asian supermarket, or totally inauthentic (but delicious) chicken enchilada casserole, with beans and cornbread.

Last night was slow-smoked ribs, roasted green beans, and a quick-and-dirty version of the turnip gratin recipe from the January thread.

Q&D Turnip Gratin

Thinly slice 3 turnips, put them in a large bowl

Pour 1 cup of cream over the turnips

Add some thyme, salt, & cayenne

Grate some parmesan into it

Add some bacon grease if you're so inclined (I was, to the tune of 1 tbsp or so)


Put the whole shebang into a cast iron skillet, cover, & bake at 350 for an hour or so

The kids and I were away for a few days visiting Grammy, and while we were gone DP ordered pizza one night and went out to dinner the next (nice for him, huh?) so we have lots of leftovers from last week to finish up. So it'll be baked beans, home fries, cabbage, fried rice, some pasta with meatballs, the thai fish patties. Happily there are still brownies left for dessert.

Terriyaki Chicken over rice, and carrots.
Yesterday was veggie lasagna

Tonight will be:
Steaks (I'm so glad we were able to buy that 1/4 of a grass-fed cow; my freezer is my friend), Baked Potatoes, Broccoli. I might bake some bread, if there's time.

I might also make chocolate bread pudding, with the last of the wheat/cinnamon swirl bread I made a couple of days ago.

Last night: beef & black bean burritos, salad & my new cheese dip recipe- yummy!
Tonight: Rosemary Chicken, roasted potatoes for the kids ( DH & I are going on South Beach today, no no potatoes for me) green beans & Salad with homemade vinagrette (oj, evoo, acv, cumin, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano)

I made homemade red sauce last night with whole wheat pasta and homemade french bread. So good and I just had leftovers for lunch. :

Tonight is beef and noodle soup with mushrooms and spinach. I am making homemade beef stock right now for the soup. This is my first time making beef stock for some reason, which is odd since I make chicken stock a lot. The stock smells good, so lets hope it tastes good or we may have a problem.

Tonight: thai veggie curry. Last night was pasta with tomato, spinach and mozzarella.

Last night:
  • Cheeseburgers (local grass-fed ground beef, raw milk cheddar & sprouted whole grain "Ezekial" buns )
  • Mashed butternut squash ca. 1993 (ok, it wasn't that old, but it was from at least mid-November, but tasted terrific)
  • Heaping sides of organic frozen broccoli from California (almost as bad as driving a Hummer)

  • Something easy - not sure. Maybe soup & sandwiches.
  • Simple side salads (local winter greens & hothouse grape tomatoes)
  • Leftover birthday cake

Tonight we're either having pancakes and bacon, or we're going out to Pizza Hut, which we never ended up doing last week.

spaghetti and meatballs, maybe a salad and garlic bread if I get motivated:

udon noodles with homemade tomato-based sauce. I'll probably add a little ground chicken with sauteed garlic and onions in the base. I have some baguette, spinach, and a little parm to go with it.

Chicken and dumplings, I think- they were talking about it last night on Splendid Table and now I have a craving!
post #58 of 243
If the meat defrosts in time we're going to have beef stew. If not, baked chicken and veggies!

Taco salad! I'm hoping that it will cure this headache I've had all day. I'm a true believer in the curative powers of salsa and avocados.

We had pasta with a spinach-cheese sauce and some sauteed veggies on top.
