So it's a new month now! :

What is everyone having for dinner? Feel free to include lunch and breakfast if you want, I could always use some new ideas and inspiration!

OK for the new month.... last night we had Cranberry Chicken. It was great. Tonight we are having veggie rotini soup. I will make grilled cheese for DH and DS to go with it, and I'll just have the soup.

The cranberry chicken sounds great! I have a bag of frozen cranberries I just found in the freezer that need to get used. Could you post the recipe? TIA!

We're having roast chicken tonight. I'm using the technique in The Good Cook. I'm determined to get roasting a chicken down to an art form this year!

Last night was a tomato and roasted red pepper soup from Trader Joe's that everyone seemed to like along with a cold tri-color pasta salad that I added red peppers and chunks of cheese and grilled chicken with a little dressing for flavoring and some yummy bread.

Tonight is family dinner with my parents and brothers and niece and they are bringing dinner here -- yay We are having steak tips and fries and salad and fresh bread and homemade cookies and I don't have to cook -- YAY!

I am enjoying the Feb thread as well as your blog for inspiration --I am always looking for new ideas and we try to eat pretty healthy most of the time -- thanks!

Last night was fettuccini (alfredo-ish) with lots of cremini mushrooms and medallions of pork.
Broccoli.

Tonight we're going out for Thai food, and I'm making a Mexican-style coconut pie for dessert.

I'm still thinking about tonight - DH is going to be out slaughtering lambs in the snow and wind, so I'm thinking maybe a yummy roast with potatoes and pumpkin or something similar.

You could make your own sauce with the cranberries.

There is a recipe here for cranberry green beans you might like making, too!

Last night we had homemade pizza.

I have a pan of enchiladas (with beans for DP, beef for me) in the oven.

I also made an enchilada casserole for the freezer.

I'm planning some fried cod, watercress sauteed in butter and lemon juice, mashed potatoes and jerusalem artichokes, steamed broccoli & cauliflower with hollandaise sauce.

I need a dessert. Maybe rice pudding?

Dh is making Chicken Korma. It's windy and cold and snowing out so it will be a great warm us up dish. Yesterday it was in the 70s so we had burgers on the grill with ice cold beers. Love the weather changes!!

Last night was a new recipe that was awful.

Breakfast was breakfast pizza, lunch was chili. Tonight is meatballs, mashed potatoes and corn.

The sheep slaughter was postponed due to weather, so no roast lamb tonight

We're having a mushroom pot roast on egg noodles, with either corn or acorn squash, and fresh "winter" bread.

This looks great! So, that's what I'm having for dinner tonight. Along with mashed sweet potatoes and broccoli and yeast rolls. I'm finding so many good ideas from your blog--thank you!

Last night was roast chicken, mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli. Tonight we're having green soup (collard greens, spinach, potato and chorizo) and homemade almost-no-knead whole wheat bread.

I made a ham and potato scallop. Everyone liked it, which is a huge victory in my family! Also, the recipe called for a can of "cream of" soup, and I made my own instead, utilizing the great advice I got on the thread I posted on that subject. Thanks, girls!

I made your "Tamale Pie" with leftover chili last week, and everyone liked it. As I mentioned in my post (just above this one) that is really an accomplishment in my family.

Awww thanks! You guys are so sweet. I'm glad that you are getting some use out of it. Sometimes I wonder what the heck I'm doing but I just like to do it for fun so we can remember what we ate and keep up with recipes as well. So if it helps someone out, that is bonus!
