I think I'll come to your house for dinner.

I have no idea what we are having and it's 6pm, me and the baby have been sick and sleeping all day and I'm not prepared at all. I guess we'll be ordering out.

Tonight is some sort of fish, rice and potatoes. I haven't figured out any more than that yet.

Last night was leftover bean soup. Tonight, I'm not sure yet. I need to cook up some brussels sprouts that I have, so definitely those. Perhaps also some chicken, maybe potatoes. Yum yum.

I am marinating a steak right now

I'll sautee zucchini & yellow squash for a side dish and probably baked sweet potatoes... I only have two but they are huge so everyone can have a half of one.

We are having beef three nights in a row which is unheard of here LOL - last night was stew, tonight the steak and tomorrow is meatballs & spaghetti (the meatballs I made double last time & froze)....

there will probably be leftover steak too since it is pretty big.... so that will be another meat meal at some point to plan LOL

Tonight is pork potato pie. Its kind of a version of shepherd's pie only with pork chops. We'll see how well it goes over.

We rarely eat red meat, but STILL have leftovers of the grilled steak that I can't let go to waste. So I'm trying to plan another steak meal for tonight. I'm thinking I may do broccoli beef over brown rice.

Sunday we ate with family and had MORE fettucini alfredo with a yummy green salad. Last night was bowtie pasta with brocolli and snap peas tossed in peanut sauce. Baked apple slices with cinnamon and brown sugar for dessert. Yum. :

Can I ask why you rarely eat red meat? We don't eat much of it here either, just wondering.

Tonight we had fast food take away :

Tonight I am going to make a simple creamy onion soup for myself. DD is at her grandma's house. No idea what she will eat there. I am also making The Barefoot Contessa's Coconut Cupcakes. Mmmmm.

Personal preference really. I prefer chicken or ground turkey to steak or ground beef. That, and I try to do 2 veggie meals a week.

And maybe this is because I'm not used to eating red meat often, but it really seems to slow my digestion down, sorry if TMI.

Last night we had red beans and rice with corn.

Tonight we're probably going to my mom's. I may make some more potato wedges to bring over.

Yes, it's almost midnight on NYE and I am posting what we ate for dinner tonight...lame. So, getting on with it.

I made some flour tortillas and filled them with black beans and onions. THen I made corn fritters on the side. DD wasn't having it though and preferred cheese and crackers...
