May! What is for dinner? - Page 6

post #101 of 260
Last night was chicken piccata on a bed of "autumn leaves" pasta , and broccoli.
Dark Chocolate/Grand Marnier gelato for dessert.

Tonight will be a spiral-cut ham (yay for the leftovers!), cheesy potatoes, rolls, green beans, and dp's vinegar-y coleslaw.
Crepes for dessert, I think.

Tomorrow, I'll probably make a batch of spaghetti sauce, and bake bread, so-- spaghetti, garlic bread, salad.

Did you make this or buy it? More importantly, can you have some delivered to my house in time for dessert?

im making my months supply of pasta sauce for the freezer today, its simmering away on the back of the stove. the pot contains 6 lbs grass fed ground beef, 2 heads of garlic, a huge onion, 6 cans tomato sauce, 6 cans chopped tomatoes, 3 cans tomato paste, a bunch of homemade chicken stock, a half bottle of red wine and some oregano and basil from the garden is waiting to go in at the end.

im on my own tonight (DH at work, toddler skipped nap and went to bed early) so i think ill have some of that sauce over a spaghetti squash with grated parm, and a couple of bottles of sierra nevada pale ale.:

I hit a huge produce sale (hoping it will last til our garden really starts producing.

I am chopping up onions, garlic, bell peppers, squash, tomatoes, green beans, and adding some cheese and Tex mex spices and I'll throw in some black beans. I'll either serve over brown rice or toss on tortillas, depending which I have..... I think the whole meal will cost about $3 for 10 people!

Tomorrow night is falafel on pita and hummus and 'mock moussaka'.

Chicken breasts with balsamic vinegar -- trying a new recipe. Will serve sauteed zucchini and parsleyed noodles with it.

ETA: we just finished dinner and the chicken was amazing! I highly recommend it if you're looking for a new and unusual recipe for chicken breasts. The only changes I made (cause you know I can't leave well enough alone when it comes to recipes! ) were to cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces so it'd cook quicker, use a smidge more butter : and added a splash (1/2 cup, maybe?) of red wine with the vinegar and broth.

DP and I both gobbled it up, and it will definitely go into the regular rotation.

I have tofu marinating in a teriyaki sauce for tonight. i'll stir fry it with creminis & red and green pepper strips, and serve over rice. Garlic- and ginger-braised baby bok choy on the side.

We were going to have leftovers but I don't think we have enough so we may have to come up with something else! I have some chicken and green beans though so maybe that with something else.

I made turkey burgers last night, which was a first for us. They were a little different, and I may try making them again. Tonight...hmmm I need to figure that one out, lol. Some kind of pasta with sauce and french bread (which I have to make, lol).
