Tonight we're having creamy baked chicken, brown rice, and peas and carrots. Tomorrow we're going out with the inlaws for pasta, and Wednesday will be elk roast, done in the slow cooker, with mashed potatoes and broccoli.

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

I have two mushy bananas and I got two dozen eggs on sale yesterday, so I'm thinking dinner will be a breakfast meal: banana bread and scrambled eggs, with oranges on the side.

I have to brag on myself - this simple dinner turned out amazing! I ended up making a turkey-dill-spinach frittata instead of plain scrambled eggs, and I used raw sugar in the muffins instead of regular sugar. It was all fabulous! I need to do breakfast for dinner more often!

Well, we've been having themed meal plans week-by-week. Last week was curries. We couldn't think of a theme for this week, but DH wanted egg foo yung last night (or as my family calls it, egg foo bar), so we decided this week's theme was food that begins with E, F or B. 'Cause we're cool like that.

So tonight is baba ganoush and flatbreads. (I just made chapattis and the focaccia is rising ; the eggplant has been roasted and seared, but I haven't found a definite recipe yet for the dip).

Then tomorrow we're having fish and fries, and frittata the day after.

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

we've all been sick this week and dh is out of town so we've barely been eating anything. But tonight I feel 100% better (kids are still a little under the weather)
So for me it's Chinese take out! (hey I'm still too weak to cook )

And for the kids it's soup

Tonight we're having cow pies (a hamburger, rice, cream of mushroom soup mix) with mashed potatoes and corn. The boys will have something else, pizza maybe.

I'm making homemade spinach fettuccine with (jarred) alfredo sauce, and baking a loaf of sourdough wheat bread to serve with garlic butter. YUM! My parents and sister are coming over, so I don't think I'll make a dessert because my dad doesn't eat desserts anymore... but we're going to watch a movie after the kids go to bed and I'll probably pop popcorn then.

Last night, we did snacks at a superbowl party.

Tacos tonight for dinner! DH is out of town and for some reason when he is gone I lose my thrill of cooking a meal, the kids just don't get as excited when I cook something really good

I was planning on fixing fried rice, but DH is several days behind on the dishes and both sides of the sink are so full I can't even wash the rice cooker. : I guess I'll clear it enough to wash the cooker and start the rice, and I'm pretty sure the wok is clean. I plan on adding veggies and egg to the rice when I fry it.

Sunday: Brown rice pasta with Italian chicken sausage, spinach and sun dried tomatoes
Yesterday: Cuban black beans, coconut peas and brown rice, sweet potato and spinach salad
Tonight: Trader Joe's chicken sausage, white rice (unusual for me but I am sick and didn't feel like anything else or waiting for brown rice to cook), broccoli and carrots
Tomorrow: Out at my brother's house
Thursday: Home-made salmon burgers with jalapeno-garlic mayo, chips with guacamole

Happily married to DH for 6 years, in process to foster-adopt 3 children DD4, DS3 and DS2. We may be bringing half brother age 9 one day as well! We are not infertile, we just have decided that since there are precious children who need homes there is no need for us to have biological children.
