Happy Birthday!


MIL has the dc for the night, so it will be a kid free zone at our house. I have a final at 4:00- 7:30, so I am not sure what dinner will be. I might order chinese as a reward for the semester being over.

All the best from me to you I just recently read somewhere that the 40s are the new 20s


Yesterday we had sandwiches with cheese and ham, crudites (cucumber slices, bell pepper strips and cherry tomatoes) as well as some incredible stir-fried green beans made from the Vegetarian Family Cookbook. My kids never ever eat string beans but yesterday they just couldn't get enough of them

Today was my MILs birthday so she cooked a nice dinner for all of us - duck breasts, rice w/fresh corn+tomatoes, cucumber salad, ice cream.

No, I really can't complain - I truly feel well-fed!

Aww bummer! Well, here's hoping your DS sleeps it off, and you get a raincheck!

Aw man, flminivanmama, that sucks. Hopefully your dh brought you something good! And I hope your boy is all better.

Tonight we're having spaghetti, salad and bread.

Thursday we're having Salmon with Lemon & Dill, red new potatoes, salad, and fruit salad.
Well I totally forgot that Tuesday was our anniversary so my menu plan was all thrown off!

So.....Tuesday was dinner out to celebrate.

Tonight is burgers and corn on the grill again (might as well use the last 4 buns and finish up the corn) with salad, and leftover cheesecake from yesterday for dessert.

Thursday will be the chili lime chicken and Friday will be the souvlaki.

happy anniversary, jessica! Where'd you go to eat?

tonight i made chicken chimichangas and everyone ate them, incl. the super-picky 5 yo
post #52 of 188
Thanks! Do I have to admit where we ate?







Ok, it was Ruby Tuesdays. Not our idea of great food, but my little brother the chef just moved to South Carolina so our gourmet meal was out of the question. We thought about going to this authentic little Mexican place but in the end we went with RT. It was alright, but I really wanted my brother to cook me something fabulous.

Last night I made fresh springrolls---rice paper wrap----used leftover chicken breast--shredded it & added this thai sweet & spicy sauce---then picked mint--scallions & basil & lettuce from garden & went to town--made @ 20 & it was yummy!
Also made some chicken nuggets for kids & their friends who were over---and sliced raw green peppers & carrots.


tonight I think I may make soemthing I saw on the food network--never usually watch it--but did at a friends--Gia laredis (?) I think is the chef--- she made a rigatoni with a butternut squash puree--with romano cheese shreads and shrimp on top......I happen to have all of the ingredients on hand in pantry-fridge & freezer--so I may try that............

Tonight is homemade B.O.B. pizza. : My new craving my IL's got me started on.
post #57 of 188
Last night we had salmon patties (with pesto mayo for the adults), mashed potatoes and peas.

Tonight will probably be leftovers.
post #58 of 188
Last night we had beef pasta skillet, sweet peas, and biscuits.

DH requested spicy chicken tortilla soup and mexican cornbread. I am going to make the cornbread in the toaster oven and the soup in the Nesco, so we don't heat the apt. too much.

DC will have fish sticks, couscous and green beans since the soup is too spicy for them.
