It's September! What are you eating?

Time for a September thread!

This month (and hopefully from now on), I want to know what you're eating for all three meals, not just dinner. That way I can steal all your ideas.

Here was our menu today:

Breakfast: waffles with maple syrup
Lunch: Sunshine Casserole (chicken, egg noodles, and lots of veggies) and steamed fresh green beans with garlic butter sauce
Dinner: "toad in a hole" (basically fried egg & toast) and turkey bacon

We also had watermelon and buttered popcorn for snacks today.

What the heck is a tater pig?! How do I live in the South and not know what that is?

Come to Idaho, the potato state!

Its a potato that they bore a hole in and stick a sausage link in there, then bake it like usual. You get them fresh and hot and smothered in cheese. Then of course you have to add a ton of sour cream and butter.

Breakfast: scrambled eggs for ds, poptart for dd, chicken biscuit and iced coffee for me

Lunch: dc eat hot lunch at school-- I had a South beach frozen dinner(turkey, brown rice and green beans with yellow bell pepper), claussan dill pickle, leftover banana pudding

Dinner: grilled beef kabobs with onions and peppers(I' m marinating them in Mexican chile and lime marinade), yellow rice, black beans, sauteed spinach. Dc will eat some of the beef tips , yellow rice and a green veggie since they don't care for spinach.

Mmm, that sounds sooo good, Allyson! I might try to make that myself someday...

We stayed at my parents' house last night because of mean old Gustav, so we had a crappy not-at-home breakfast of Trix for the kids and strawberry Pop-Tarts for me. Blech.

Lunch was chicken tortilla soup & tortilla chips.

My 6-year-old has requested chicken & black bean quesadillas for dinner, and I have chicken I need to use up, so I guess that'll be it. We'll have them with salsa & sour cream. I'm also going to make a devil's food cake with chocolate icing in a little while, so that'll be dessert. I have been craving chocolate cake. :

Toad in the Hole is actually sausage in yorkshire pudding, Becoming. I think you're thinking of simply eggs on toast or "egg in a basket".

Today we are having pea soup or leftover beans and rice. Yesterday was a good ole' cookout. My mom might eat those left overs.

Hmm, I never knew that. We've always called them "toad in a hole," that's what my grandma called them. My husband says "sun in a window." We actually cut a hole in the bread and crack the egg inside the hole.

We just had a great dinner. My partner made a really yummy corn and roasted pepper soup and we ate it with a mixed green and microgreen salad with goat cheese and almonds. So so so good. Healthy, too.
