It's JUNE! What's For Dinner? - Page 2

post #21 of 171
Last night we had left over homemade potato-leek soup.

Tonight is chicken thighs and legs seasoned and roasted with blue and red potatoes, cauliflower, carrots and garlic. Homemade juice ice pops for dessert.

Tomorrow is Trader Joes organic tomato and roasted red pepper soup with turkey and cheese sandwiches. Strawberries and whipped cream for dessert.

Thursday is (mostly) organic vegetable stir fry over organic basmati rice...might throw in a little lean sliced beef...not too sure.

Chicken cutlets, dipped in flour, then a mixture of egg and dijon mustard, then whole wheat breadcrumbs. Then baked.

With: Corn on the cob, baked potatoes with sour cream, and chickpeas sauteed with onion.

I loved the chicken. Sooo good.

We ate out last night, friends are in town visiting. I made an all-market and -garden breakfast, though - omelette aux fines herbes with tomato-garlic scape concasse. I could eat that every day, honestly. I need to go get some good Gruyere; then it would be perfect.

Tomorrow night we're making duck and shrimp gumbo.

Monday was fajita steak salad (I roasted onions, corn, and red pepper and tossed it with thinly sliced grilled steak and avacado.)

Tuesday - southwestern turkey burgers (crushed up tortilla chips and mixed with extra lean ground turkey, an egg and salsa) - topped w/ homemade salsa and chopped avacado and oven baked sweet potato "fries"

Tonight - yoga night for me, frozen tortellini & sauce for DH and the kids

Thursday - Chicken curry w/ veggies on basmati rice

Friday - out with my parents

Hi Y'all. I'm joining this thread hoping to get dinner ideas. We generally eat well, but I'm getting bored with things lately. I'm already seeing several things that sound really good.

Sunday night was pork tenderloin marinated in an Asian-style marinade (soy sauce type), garlic flower buds, roasted potatoes. Strawberries for dessert.

Monday night I made baby back ribs, cole slaw and corn on the cob. My kids love ribs and corn on the cob, so they ate well. And then slept well too!

Last night I made pasta with caramelized fennel and Italian sausage on it, and DH and I had a salad: baby greens, tomatoes, spiced walnuts, goat cheese, balsamic viniagrette. That is more or less our standard summer salad. I make my own spiced nuts, if anyone wants the recipe LMK as it is very quick and easy.

Tonight it will probably be scrambled eggs b/c DH won't be home. He doesn't like beans or eggs, so we eat those on evenings when he'll be gone.

I went grocery shopping last night and forgot to take the grocery list with me - so I didn't get the chicken that I wanted to make sometime this week.

BlueStateMama - do your turkey burgers stay together? Mine always crumble apart on the grill - I've tried adding bread crumbs or oatmeal and an egg to the mix before I form the burgers and they still fall apart.

I planned on making tostadas with leftover brisket made earlier in the week. Well, we did not having any leftover. I found a pitiful eye of round roast at the bottom of the freezer for today.

Slow cooker Mexican Pot Roast(shredded fot tostadas or soft tacos)
Homemade Mexican Rice
Refried Beans with cheese

Last night was Mom's Night Out with our playgroup so i had Red Lobster. It was pretty good... but not good for me!

Tonight we are having Taco Pie.

Monday was burgers DH grilled and I made potato salad.

CookieMonsterMommy - I don't have an exact recipe for it. It's different every time! LOL But there are a few versions of it on my blog.

Last night my main dish was a casserole made up with baked chicken, gravy from scratch, veggies and topped with mashed potatoes.

This is tonight's copied pasted from a post I made elsewhere:

I have this going in the crockpot for dinner tonight with a few changes. I left out the spicy additions because while I love flavor I do not like spice. My poor husband will have to add his own.

2 pounds ground chicken, coarsely ground preferred (4 large chicken quarters partially baked, cut off the bone and thrown in in large chunks because that is what I had on hand.)
3 tablespoons chili powder, plus 2 teaspoons (none)
1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15-ounce) can white beans, drained and rinsed
2 (28-ounce) cans diced fire roasted tomatoes (1 can of diced tomatoes; again it's what I had)
1 medium sweet potato (about 10 ounces), peeled and shredded (none)
1 (15-ounce) can low-sodium chicken broth ( 1 10oz plus the broth from the chicken i cooked last night)
1/4 cup instant tapioca (recommended: Minute tapioca) (none)
1 to 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce with seeds, chopped (none)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon kosher salt (plain salt)
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons granulated garlic (dry sliced garlic)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground cloves
1/2 to 3/4 cup lager-style beer, optional (none)
Toppings: Sour cream, shredded Cheddar or Jack cheese, chopped scallions, and chopped pickled jalapenos

Put the chicken in the slow cooker. Add 3 tablespoons of the chili powder and all the rest of the ingredients, except the beer. Stir everything together, cover, and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
Just before serving, stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons of chili powder, the beer, if using, and season with more salt and pepper, to taste, if desired. Divide the chili among warm bowls. Serve with the topping of your choice.

Know-How: Stirring in chili powder right before serving brightens the flavor of the chili.

Last night I ended up making chicken and dumplings. Tonight DP has to go to a banquet for work, so the kids and I are having a gooey, gloppy, cheesy, beefy casserole adapted from something I found on AllRecipes -- kind of like a lasagna bake. Hope it's good!

Hmm...I want to make some egg noodles I have had. I might mix them with some caramelized onions...

I have no meat at all in the house, so I guess we will also have some green beans and maybe baked potatoes, which sounds awfully starchy, but the pantry's not exactly over-flowing.

Dessert, though, will be delicious brown sugar pound cake - one of my favorite things.:

tonight it's a simple meal of grilled chicken breast, crash hot potatoes and leftover carrot/chive salad with lemon yogurt dressing.

I have a cherry pie baking right now as well

Salmon and gren beans, that's all that sounds good right now.

Sunday we went out to Famous Dave's for BBQ. Yummy!

Monday was Mac 'n Cheese - DH was out and the kids and I had a very late lunch so we weren't hungry

Tuesday was a delicious salad made with spinach, carrots, tomatoes, celery. Then I grilled some chicken breasts and some sliced summer squash that were both seasoned with a cumin / coriander rub. Sliced up the chicken and added both to the salad. Added some cumin/coriander/garlic/olive oil/lemon juice dressing. Served with fresh baked bread.

Tonight will be baked sole, brocolli, carrots and crashed hot potatoes (thanks for the link above!).

Those potatoes look delicious; I do believe they will be on the menu sometime very soon.
