oooh I think I want to join this thread! It is so nice to get new ideas for meals!

I have some things to use up, so I am making lasagne with spinach, basil, and zuccini. I'll cook some onions and garlic and add a bunch of herbs and a bit of wine and balsamic vinegar to tomato paste for the sauce. I also have some cheese (from a failed yogurt attempt) that I'll use instead of ricotta. I wish I were making my own noodles, but alas. I'm too lazy!

I made up some Caesar salad dressing the other day, so we'll probably have a salad to go along with it.

I have a mix of white and pinto beans in the crockpot cooking, I'm going to make them into a bean and spinach soup for dinner. This afternoon the kids and I are going to bake rolls from scratch. Yum!

We went out last night, to an *awesome* local restaurant called The Flying Burger. (It's mostly seafood, although they do have really great burgers.)

Tonight DD wants to make blueberry pancakes, and I'm making sausage, too. I might try a whole wheat recipe for the pancakes. Anyone have a good one?

I am thawing ground moose meat for burgers tonight and we have avocado to put on them. I think I'll also cut up potatoes and roast them and have a salad or some vegetable.

I am also going to make some leek and potato soup to have for lunch tomorrow.

What a great idea! I'm new around here, but I'm definitely subscribing to this one! :

Last night was deer sausage, perogies (I fried up some onions and mushrooms for mine - dh and ds1 won't touch them with a ten foot pole) and steamed broccoli. Tonight we had Cauliflower Soup (recipe from thepioneerwoman.com) homemade biscuits, and just because it's Friday, I made a pan of brownies and served them with icecream. Hit the spot! (though not the most nutritious!)

Momma to two boys...: Nolan ('05) and
Dylan ('08) and expecting a July 2010!!

We got a new tv yesterday and dh and I were so busy playing wii on it that we totally forgot to cook dinner.

I think tonight we'll do gumbo over brown rice. I have a yummy recipe but it takes a long time to prep and cook, it's perfect for a cold Saturday when we are hanging around the house. Now, if I can just get dh to go to the store for me.

I don't know about tonight. I'm getting sick, working part of the day and then painting this afternoon so I told dh he needed to decide what he was doing for dinner.

I am not feeling well and I can't decide which to fix: fried liver 'n onions 'n peppers or homemade broccoli pepperoni pizza. Neither sounds terribly appealing to me right now.

We had Portabella Penne Casserole, but I changed it up a bit. It's a vegetarian recipe which I'm always looking for more of. If you want to see, there are pics and the recipe here... http://cookingformyfamily.blogspot.c...casserole.html

Last night we ate breakfast-type food. Scrambled eggs with cheese, over roasted potatoes, biscuits with jam. Tonight will probably be corn on the cob, some whole grain rice pilaf, and balsamic glazed potatoes and green beans.

We are going to have left over gumbo, mmm that stuff is good.

I'm thinking about making a dessert, something with apples since I have a bunch that are getting soft. Apple cobbler or apple pie maybe.

I've felt uninspired when it comes to cooking but I do love most anything posted at Wondertime by Catherine Newman. I especially love the soy-glazed tofu and also the carrot salad. Very easy, fast, nutritious foods. Yum!

Got my meal plan together for the week. Still trying to use up some frozen meat I was given that is not the kind of stuff we usually eat! But we had a couple of great meals last week, so I'm excited to branch out again.

Tonight - bbq country style ribs, baked beans & green beans w/ roasted red peppers

Tuesday - make your own taco salad

Wed - tuna burgers w/ avacado sauce and sweet potato fries

Thurs - crockpot pork chops over brown rice with sauteed broccoli & carrots
