OK It's December now! So, what are you having for dinner? Feel free to include lunch and breakfast, too, seems like people can always use ideas for those meals. :

I don't know. Maybe turkey & mashed potatoes, maybe turkey noodle soup. I don't feel like either right now so I'm not sure.

For breakfast, I had oatmeal and ww toast. Ds1 had breakfast pizza at school and ds2 is home with daddy and I have no clue what they had.
Lunch was a turkey sandwich on ww, chips and homemade clam chowder for me, fish for ds2 and a burrito for ds1. No clue on dh. I'm sure he'll eat something involving turkey.

Coming back for December. I'm hoping to try tons of new recipes this month! :

Dinner tonight will be stuffed manicotti. The filling is Italian sausage, tomato-based sauce, & Ricotta cheese, among other things. We're having steamed broccoli, a mixed greens salad, and garlic bread with it.

Tonight will be beef tongue and potato hash. We'll probably have apple/fennel salad with that, unless another veg jumps out and grabs me. Maybe some broccoli...

Tomorrow will be lamb burgers/patties, and probably kale.

Tonight I made a cool dinner. I mixed ground beef with egg, salsa, taco spices and crushed tortilla chips (like you would for meatloaf) and then gently pressed a thin layer of it in a pie pan. I baked it til done, covered with lots of cheese and then poured on a layer of corn bread batter. Baked it til done and served with sour cream, salsa, etc. The kids were nuts for it. It was basically a tamale pie, for those who have had that before, but by mixing the meat up that way, it all held together and wasn't so messy for the kiddos, plus I got a few eggs in them as a bonus!
I also shaped some of the meat mixture into little patties and baked them for quick breakfasts, lunches, snacks...

Well, I had good intentions for last night, but TWO of my kids started throwing up, so the plans went out the window. The other, non-vomiting kid and I had an egg in a window and bacon.

Tonight we're having grilled boneless pork chops, purple hull peas, steamed broccoli, and Annie's shells & white cheddar.

I attempted to grill boneless pork chops on my George Foreman tonight and burned the outsides while the insides were still raw, somehow. Oops. We had oven "fried" chicken instead with mac & cheese, purple hull peas, and rolls.

I made the yummiest dinner tonight!!! Spaghetti squash lasagna. I baked and forked through the spaghetti squash, then layered meat sauce with a blend of spicy italian sasauge and ground beef, tomato sauce garlic and onion, a layer of spaghetti squash, a layer of spinich and creamcheese mixture, a layer of cheese, lather rinse repeat and baked it for half an hour. It tasted imho better than lasagna with noodles! :

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :

I WAS going to make steaks in the grill pan with zucchini and onions but after getting back from Park Day (where DD and I ate a picnic lunch), DH informed me he went out for lunch and had...STEAK! LOL

I think I'll heat up some freezer leftovers...maybe turkey sausage patties and make grilled zucchini?

Rachel, we must be on the same wavelength today. I'm cooking chicken spaghetti for dinner. I think we'll have steamed broccoli, spinach salad, and garlic bread to go with it.
