Last night we had Salmon and steaks, both cooked on the stovetop, broccoli, bread, and winter squash soup.

I'm planning the rest of the week tonight so I'll post later!

I was supposed to be going to my work Christmas party tonight and the boys were going to have pizza with Grandma, but my oldest is sick so we might all be having pizza.

Tonight we're having roast chicken. I have about 4-5 smallish red potatoes to use up, but I have no idea what to do with them. Any suggestions? We're also going to have either field peas or lima beans and maybe homemade bread if I can get my butt in there and make it.

Not sure what we're having tonight but I've had REALLY bad morning already so I'm thinking something comforting like Chicken Pot Pie or beef stew

My husband is out of town so I don't really need to cook. DD and I snack all day. It's how we prefer to eat. I'm sorry to say we had pizza one night and take out last night (at least I had a salad!). tonight I'm cooking, though: pork chops, orzo and a salad for me to go with.

aww - I hope the rest of the day is better

last night I made lasagna rolls. the filling was made with ricotta cheese and acorn squash & I made a white sauce for the top.

tonight I am making stuffed green peppers (stuffed with rice, salsa, and refried beans and topped with cheese) and cheese quesadillas w/ guacamole & sour cream.

I've been posting pictures of things I make for dinner on facebook - just last night & tonight but I am thinking of doing it regularly....

Thanks! It's been a little better, DH's trunk bit the dust this morning and I keep wondering why this stuff always has to happen around the holidays. But we're healthy and fed and that's really all that matters, right

Great idea about the pictures!! I might have to start doing that too

Last night we did end up having schnitzel and spatzel, it was sooooo good! I added some green beans and made a little gravy and my hubby was a happy camper.

Tonight I'm making beans w/ a ham hock and cornbread. DH has been begging me to make them for a while
