Bacon wrapped trout, caught yesterday by our neighbor's 4yo ds!, served with coucous and steamed broccoli. It was pretty good, I may eat the leftovers with eggs and toast with cream cheese tomorrow :

Saturday we had london broil, sauteed veggies and baked fries.
Last night was pork chops with sauteed onions, mashed potatoes and green beans.
Tonight will be leftovers. I think I'll turn the pork chops into bbq pork sandwiches for dh and I and the boys will eat whatever looks good to them.

Big chef's salads for us tonight -- the kids will have the "extras" from the salads (ham, cheese, h.b. egg, carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, etc.).

Baked potatoes, roasted green beans, leftover grilled pork chops.

Last night we made the Pioneer Woman's Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies on the grill. They are delicious.

DH is out tonight, and I feel like crap (nasty cold and laryngitis), so nothing fancy for dinner. I'm thinking maybe chicken nuggets, home baked fries and leftover salad for the girls. I'll nibble on some fries and salad.

lasagna, home made sauce

eta: my dh asked "is this store bought!?" when he ate my lasagna! he usually hates it when I cook lasagna, but this time I got the thumbs up! didn't use a recipe and just threw things together. did use half ground beef, half hot italian sausage, two cans whole tomatoes, a large can of tomato paste and a few cans of water, a table spoon of italian seasoning, and another one of red pepper flakes, plus a couple diced carrots, celery ribs, onion and garlic. and a healthy splash of red wine

Cowboy beans with rice tonight. I am hoping against hope that our rock-hard avocados will ripen in time to slice some of those up for dinner too. They're already in a paper bag with bananas, but so far nothing's happening.

Sunday was salmon with creamed leeks and couscous with beets (which was awesome, but looked pretty weird)

Monday was chicken salad on matzo before yoga, and some yogurt with honey afterwards. We never end up having a proper dinner on Mondays since yoga's right in the middle of the evening.

Tonight I'm working late but have to come up with something to do with the lamb shanks I cooked the other day. I've never made lamb before but cooked up a bit for our passover seder plate, and now I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. Ideas? Can I re-heat it in some sort of fruity liquid and eat it with quinoa? (grain options are limited since it's still passover)

My pork chop sandwiches were great! I just chopped up the leftover meat and heated with bbq sauce, sauteed some onions and put it all on some leftover french bread.

Tonight is paninis or tacos, I haven't decided yet.

How do you cook the greens? DH loves them, but I need a little more flavor for mine.

DH is out again, and I still feel like crud. I'm doing a basic spinach / brown rice / cheese bake.

well, last night we had western bacon cheeseburgers.. one of my husband's favorite things in the world is a western bacon cheeseburger from carl's jr, but we both swore off fast food years and years ago. he does get the occasional craving, and i like a good burger, too. they were delicious... good whole wheat rolls, grass fed beef burgers, kerrygold cheddar, naturally cured bacon and a good quality bottled bbq sauce. salad with lettuce, cukes, carrots, tomatoes, radishes and parsley on the side.

Here is how we do it---

I cook the greens in low sodium chicken stock (veggie works, too)
adding a some red pepper flakes and garlic--- once the greens are done, I add jalepenos and juice( a few tablespoons) from the jalepeno jar-- let simmer about 10-15 min -- then check for salt/seasonings.

It might seem weird to use jalepenos from a jar, but it really adds alot of flavor and spice.

For dinner-
Pizza

Those are some fancy-schmancy bacon cheeseburgers! They sound de-freakin'-licious though! :AndI bet they put Carl's Jr to shame!
