I bought a food magazine last week and it has a meal plan in it for 5 days and every day that you cook you make extra a save it for the following day. Last night we had grilled marinated garlic chicken, grilled potatos and grilled asparagus, I made extra chicken and potatos and tonight I am having grilled steak, potato salad (made with the grilled potatos), and salad with homemade vinaigrette. So I need to save some romaine lettuce and vinaigrette for our dinner tomorrow which is a cobb salad with leftover grilled chicken, bacon, feta cheese, tomatos and romaine lettuce with the leftover vinaigrette.

I think tonight I am making pizza with pineapple and turkey bacon. And black olives Oh, and probably vodka sauce on it too. and maybe some yummy fresh basil from CSA. Though I will have to make an extra pizza too I think, for leftovers. So I will most likely make one with pesto, and maybe a sausage of some sort, and kalamata olives.


No more dessert for a while. I am stuffed from cobbler last night. Maybe I could mix in some cherries to that vanilla ice cream though.Or make some hot cocoa.

Due with number 5 in August. We do all that crunchy stuff.

Tonight we're having: homemade wheat pitas, homemade hummus with CSA basil mixed in, and a tomato and cucumber salad.

The boys won't eat hummus right now so they eat plain chick peas instead

Mama to three wonderful boys and a fabulous baby girl.
My heartfelt thanks to all those that have donated milk to others; you are amazing

Something with beans (I cooked a double batch yesterday on purpose). I'll let the kids pick, but it'll either be chili or bean burgers.

Last night was BBQ pork sandwiches with just-picked green beans and garlic mashed potatoes made from spuds that had just been dug out of the ground earlier in the day!

We're getting ready to head out of town for the weekend, so tonight it was just leftover BBQ, leftover mashed potatoes and baked beans. And to top it all off: homemade all-organic vanilla ice cream! Mmm!

we had chicken in the crockpot with 2 cups strong kefir, 1 tsp rosemary, 1 tsp sage, 1 tsp white pepper, and 2 tblsp horseradish mustard. And some salt.And a few cloves garlic and one leek. Then when it was almost done I put in about 1 1 /2 cups water and added a bag of wild brown rice medley from Trader Joes. When done, i put some parmesean on top.
Served with petite peas and a baguette and brie.

last night was chili tricolor pasta (used up the pasta that i had, the original recipe calls for macaroni) with a salad made from fresh lettuce from my mom's garden, carrots, and radishes (also from my mom's garden) and some excellent cheesy bread (used up some hoagie rolls that i had)

it was very good....

i didn't get any of the leftover chili pasta because my dp insisted on taking them all to work....

Beef stew, in the middle of Summer, I know. But hubby brought home bottom round, have to cook it to death.

Still yummy with salad with herbs out of our garden and bread and butter. At least it's cooled down enough to cook again.

Tonight I made honey ginger chicken strips with noodles and broccoli and sesame seeds. It's like chinese food. Good news was that my toddler loved it and scarfed lots of chicken and broccoli.

This was really fabulous.

I had nothing in my fridge in the way of vegetables but a bag of carrots and a pint of cherry tomatoes. But I do have a pot of basil growing outside so I plucked all of it and whipped up a great pesto (50 fresh basil leaves, 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts, 1/2 cup grated fresh parmesean, 1/4 cup olive oil, and salt to taste ... in the food processor till finely minced). Dumped this into a large mixing bowl, halved the cherry tomatoes and added, then cooked and drained 3/4ish pounds of cooked drained whole wheat pasta and tossed it around. Serve hot room temperature, or cold.

Recipe, please?!? :

Last night we had something very similar to sabrosina's dinner -- pasta with a basil/ricotta cream sauce and sauteed vegetables.

Tonight we are celebrating with a bottle of champagne that's been in our fridge since last Christmas, some shrimp cocktail, fresh Italian bread with roasted garlic-parmesan spread, and whatever other nibblies I come up with.

Our new tenant is coming to sign the lease today (we have a rental apt and have been trying to get it rented for months -- the deals keep falling through, so we're really excited that this guy is going to work out, touch wood). And, you know, just whatever... Getting through the first six months of having two kids?!

We just filled the freezer with free-range chicken (on sale at an unbelievable price!) yesterday so we're grilling tonight. I made dry rub for the chicken that looks and smells wonderful- I can't wait to try it.

Also have baked beans in the crock-pot right now, hopefully they'll be done by dinner. A friend is coming to eat with us tonight and bringing some corn from his garden so I'm also going to attempt to make creamed corn since I have some cream that really needs to be used now or else just tossed. The same friend also brought me some new potatoes from his garden the other day and I used it to make potato salad per his request. We also have some heirloom tomatoes that I'll make a salad out of.

We don't normally eat such big meals, but it sure sounds good today!

It was a turbocooker recipe so I don't know how to adapt it for someone who doesn't own one.
