This is fun so I'm going again (I love reading the yummy things everyone else cooks )

Last night: Wild salmon, wild rice pilaf, and late season corn-on-cob --- What a treat!!!

Mon night: Leftovers: Whole wheat rotini w/ meat sauce

Sun night: Whole wheat rotini w/ homemade tomato/meat sauce, green beans, salads for the grown-ups

Sat night: Frozen Amy's pizzas for dh and older kids -- baby and I were out of town for 1 night at a must-attend family thing

Fri night: Leftover vegetable lasagna and anadama bread

Thurs night: Homemade vegetable lasagna (even snuck some kale in there!!) and homemade anadama bread


Hmmm... looking at this I can see we're in an Italian food rut.

OK, I just went through the entire thread and wrote down some things I'd love to have recipes for. so many things look so good, but I am cooking for some *very* finicky eaters.

I'd love cjr's beef barley soup and beef dip sandwich recipes (other posted beef soups, too, those too please!)
chrissy -- black bean soup?
Red -- minestrone? (I love making soups can you tell?)
isosmom -- potato, zucchini, turnip pancakes (coudl I add spinach too do you think?) do you serve anything in particular with them?
phishmama -- tell me 'bout your crockpot chicken/carrots/taters (someone else posted something similar, too, please tell!)
G&B'sMama -- homemade black bean burgers??
MamaMonica -- potato leek soup

oh, and what is dahl?

thanks mamas. this thread has been really fun for me.

mamaroni - I'm pretty sure you could add spinach, but if you cook it first I would make sure you squeeze out all the liquid first. I served them with sour cream and ketchup (for the kids). Grated one potato, one turnip and one zucchini. Added 3 eggs and a small handful of flour. Seasoned with salt and pepper and cooked like pancakes. Super easy and the kids ate them up. Great way to get the veggies in. Let me know how it goes with the spinach.

We're on a very bland elimination diet at the moment. No fancy recipes or strongly-flavored foods; just plain peasant-type meals, made from simple, fresh ingredients. Much to our surprise, we're actually enjoying eating this way!

1) Red lentils, mung beans, green onions, & rice

2) Chicken, cabbage, green beans, leeks, garlic, & potatoes

3) Chicken, rice congee, celery, green beans, chayote, green onions

4) Scrambled eggs w/ green onions & parsley; rice cakes

5) Chicken; black beans w/ green onions; oven fries w/ garlic & parsley

MaryCeleste, what is rice congee and what is chayote?

Your meals sound so good - when I did the elimination diet I was too lazy/clueless to do anything much more than plain rice and turkey and pears! You should write a book lol!

That all sounds yummy, really. Onions, garlic, parsely, celery etc offer great flavor, and leeks are one of my fav things in the world. Can you use any salt?

Last night was comfort food--roasted chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, broccoli roasted in with the chicken, baked acorn squash, whole wheat baguette & salad tossed with just a litt olive oil, salt & pepper.

Fri was pizza. Thurdsay was butternut squash, udon noodles with sauteed carrots & kale, with miso broth. I can't remember which day- but i know i also made baked fish with couscous, salad, etc.

I think i am going to make some sort of stew or soup today, I haven't decided. I am thinking something with rice.

i think that's 5.

I am in envy of you ladies. I tend to get in such a rut when it comes to dinner time.

Let's see:
-stir-fry brocolli with sweet soy sauce, garlic and mushrooms with tempeh
-Quorn chicken nuggets, peas, and rolls
-basmati rice/vegetable curry dish, salmon, salad
-Chinese noodles stir fry with tons of veggies and setain

I've also made tofu pumpkin pie for dessert

I can't remember the rest.

Chayote is a squash that tastes a little like a cross between a zucchini and a cucumber. Also known as vegetable pear, mirliton, Christophene, chuchu, pipinella, huisquil, and about a hundred other names. IMO, the names are much more interesting than the vegetable itself. :LOL

Rice congee is a porridge made from cooking rice in several times the usual amount of water or stock. Also known as Jook. It's fed to babies and invalids in China, and it's also a popular breakfast dish there. Toward the end of the cooking time, you can add some vegetables, meat, fish, tofu, or whatever you like.

UUmom, yes, we can have salt, thank goodness! We can also have small amounts of white sugar and refined canola oil. But no honey, or cold-pressed oils; they contain too many natural food chemicals. (We're on a "low-chemical" diet. It seemed kind of bizarre at first, but it's been working very well for us. I'll post a little about it in Health & Healing.)

--no cold-pressed oils--

OMG. Does that mean no extra virgin olive oil, too? I know i do not want to know about any bad chemicals that might be in that! My fingers are in my ears, MaryCeleste! lalalalalalalala
