It's April...What's for Dinner?

post #1 of 231
Thread Starter 
I'll start a new thread for a new month.

I'm going to make a potato and spinach curry tonight -- I will probably throw in either some chickpeas or lentils, too.

I was planning on doing a stir fry with left over leg of lamb... but I've neglected going to the grocery store the past couple days so I'm not really sure... it might be a very simple stir fry

I am thinking Teriyaki pork ribs in the crock pot, with rice, and maybe coleslaw or ranch potato salad.

I missed class today due to a migraine, and I really don't feel like cooking dinner. I think I am going to roast the pork tenderloin I planned for today and let dh make the sides when he gets home.

Roasted herb-crusted pork tenderloin
mashed sweet potatoes ( or white if dh prefers)
steamed italian green beans

Tonight we had leftover vegetarian jambalaya from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, served with organic corn chips from Trader Joe's.
Ben and Jerry's "Half Baked" frozen yogurt for dessert. Yum!

We had some SUPER delicious quesadillas. I put baby spinach, avocado chunks, cut-up cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, diced purple onions, and cheddar cheese in them. Best quesadillas ever!

this week so far we've eaten:

jerk pork tenderloin, with glazed carrots and broccoli and cheese sauce - would have been better with suggestions from my other thread though.. but I had all the stuff to make cheese sauce

yesterday was sausages, mac and cheese, and kale with garlic. the sausages were supposed to be chicken, artichoke, and pepper jack, but instead turned out to be something weird with peanuts - the butcher must have picked up the wrong one.

day before was lamb burgers (inspired by a real simple recipe) spiced with oregano, mint and cumin
quinoa salad with lemon/olive oil, cucumber, tomato, green onion, green bell pepper and french goat feta
olives and store bought hummus

Brussel sprouts and green garlic sauteed in butter, and leftover leg of lamb.

I'm the parent helper at DS's preschool today, which always wipes me out so yesterday I made a tuna casserole (with homemade cream-of-mushroom soup, though! ) for tonight's dinner. I will only have to pop it in the oven and make a veggie or two to go with it -- probably peas and salad.

I have class until 5pm then the horrendous commute in rush hour traffic, so I won't be home until after 6:30 (if I am lucky)!

We will be having something from the freezer:

Stuffed Shells(ground turkey, artichoke hearts, spinach, parmesan) with tomato/basil sauce

Steamed veggies (broccoli, carrots, asparagus, red bell pepper)

Garlic Toast

Sloppy lentils and a big salad.

Last night I made these delicious pepper/onion/tomato sandwiches. My mom had made homemade salsa that was too vinegary, so I drained and rinsed and then sauteed it up and put it in buns. YUM!

Last night we had Barbecued Pulled Pork Sandwiches on Burger Buns, corn, carrot sticks, and apple slices.

Tonight is Italian Meatloaf with Fresh Basil and Provolone, sweet potato fries, and Brussels sprouts.
