I think I will make breakfast for dinner. Biscuits, eggs, and some sliced fruit.

Since it's starting to really cool off at night we're having my grandma's chicken soup (chicken soup mexican style). Lots of cilantro, big chunks of garlic, lemon juice to taste. We love this stuff.

Last night we had a chicken broccoli bake with green beans. Tonight we are making BBQ chicken pizza with a salad.

Tonight is stuffed peppers with fried potatoes on the side. I can't figure out a good side to go with stuffed peppers?
post #66 of 138
Oh boy. Tonight is a frozen pizza - cheese - with tortilla chips and spinach-artichoke dip and pumpkin ale - for me!! Not one I am particualrly proud of all I did was rip open boxes and heat things up, but it is all I can really manage tonight.

Whenever I can't figure out a side, I just go with a salad. But with that meal, what about corn?
post #68 of 138
I did not think of corn! I did think about salad but its freezing here today and salad just didn't sound good.

Ooh, I'll have another look at this thread when I do my meal plan for next week!

Tonight DH was at his parents', so I made lentil and brown rice casserole. Tomorrow night we'll have homemade baked beans, done with kidney beans; then Wednesday we're splurging and having butter chicken. (Meat is a luxury these days!) I'm trying to learn how to cook Indian food well, so Indian nights are always exciting. I'll make naan and yellow rice to go with it, and mango lassi; maybe some kind of dessert if I can find a recipe that doesn't require earthenware pots and 48 hours of fermentation, which I couldn't, last time.

Wow! I can't believe I just found this forum and thread! I'm hooked! :
All these meals sound amazing and are giving me inspiration b/c I have been in a total rut this whole pregnancy.
Tonight we're making tempeh melts with pesto, zuccini and mushrooms. My husband will be gone the rest of the week, so I'll be on my own, and I get to make the meals that he doesn't like
I have a feeling I'll be lurking here a lot!

kristenb could you share the recipe for your pork chops with dijon-apple sauce? That made my mouth water!
post #73 of 138
tonight is supposed to be meatball and matzah ball soup. I have no ground beef though so I need to run to the store. I also have a ton of veggies that would be good roasted
post #74 of 138
I'm making a ham and cheese calzone and broccoli.
post #75 of 138
Tonight is chicken fried steak (if I can remember how), mashed potatoes and whatever veggie looks good.

Last night we went out for pizza, Sunday was meatball subs and fries.

Here is the site where I found the recipe- I wish I could take credit for it but I can't!

I thought it was really good. It was the first time I made it, so I think next time I would double the sauce (I like a lot of sauce) and maybe add in some apple chunks or slices.

I haven't cooked at all since Friday. Sat we were at a BBQ all day, and Sun and Mon we went out to eat. Tonight we are probably just pulling out leftovers. DS and DH are going out of town tomorrow for the rest of the week so I doubt I will cook at all until they come back!

Tonight - balsamic glazed pork chops with a side of butternut squash baked with sage, camelized onions, sprinkled with goat cheese.

Wed - cajun tilapia sandwiches with salad & onion rings

Thurs - red beans n' rice

I've got a bunch of apples to get rid of, so we are also making applesauce, apple pie and baked apples with cinnamon this week.

DS has requested another batch of pumpkin muffins as well.
