It's been raining in Massachusetts for over a week, and we're supposed to get one week more. We're all going stir crazy, and need a good dinner to cheer us up! Any suggestions?

cleaning out the fridge and making a chicken salad with the leftover veggies and chicken breasts i have. maybe some garlic bread on the side - i have some bread i need to get rid of also.

einalems 05-15-2006 03:33 PM

Just loaded up on salad supplies today, so it will be a nice chicken salad for us.

Vanessa 05-15-2006 03:44 PM

I'm using up stuff in the freezer, so we're having chili. I am making homemade croissants today, though, so that more than makes up for it.

Cream of asparagus soup with homemade w.w. bread, butter and cheese.

phathui5 05-15-2006 04:21 PM

Shell noodles with Trader Joe's tomato basil marinara sauce cooked with spinach. Garlic bread.

Plady 05-15-2006 05:17 PM

Spag with meat sauce tonight. But tomorrow I'm trying my fave thai grilled chicken marinade on pork instead with grilled asparagus. Can't wait!

: Looking for ideas cause this might be the last dinner I make for a few days if I do go into labor. :

Owen'nZoe 05-15-2006 05:35 PM

DH is on dinner duty tonight, so it'll be Asparagus Ravioli and sauce from a local hand-made pasta shop. Yummy! Tomorrow will be rice and bean tacos.

Mama2Kayla 05-15-2006 05:36 PM

We are having leftover roast chicken wraped up in sprouted grain torts, with rice and beans, guacamole, creme fraiche, lettuce, and grated raw chedder cheese.

In MA too, and after the boys splashed in puddles and got soaked, we had a "picnic" indoors: homemade hummus and crackers, cucumber slices, celery sticks, grapes, strawberries, dried apricots, and cashews.

There is currently a pot of vegetable bean soup on the stove, and I bought some sesame french bread to accompany it. The boys are going to watch Little Bear on tv, and then we're going to eat.

Bubble bath to follow!

Steaks with loads of peppers, onions, mushrooms and corn on the cob all cooked on the grill. We'll also have a salad.

HerthElde 05-15-2006 06:45 PM

meatloaf, spinach, broccoli&cauliflower w/cheese, garlic mashed potatoes

Lisalee2 05-15-2006 06:51 PM

We're trying to eat high raw, so for us it's going to be a big ol' salad and collard roll-ups. Collard leaves stuffed with homemade hummus, radishes, kale, cucumber, and avocado.

pnutS4us 05-15-2006 06:54 PM

We were supposed to have meatloaf tonight, but the meat is still frozen solid!! We have gotten rid of our micro, and I had forgotten how long it takes for meat to defrost in the fridge. Sooooo I guess we will have ww spaghetti with meat sauce (I have a 1 lb pack I can cook from frozen for the spaghetti) with raw pecorino cheese that I found at TJ's and a baby green salad with olive oil and balsalmic vinegar.

Poddi 05-15-2006 06:56 PM

Hmm, I'm making some bread right now. We'll probably have bread, fried fish, cucumber salad and possibly a soup.

darkpear 05-15-2006 07:44 PM

Roast salmon filets (currently marinating in honey and lime juice), cucumber salad and whole wheat pitas.

Persephone 05-15-2006 07:53 PM

Spaghetti Pie from Pretend Soup, and salad. Homemade blueberry pie w/ real whipped cream for dessert.

NinaBruja 05-15-2006 07:55 PM

last night i made this:
but with no onions or lemon juice and with more tamari, celery carrots and vegenaise. spead on toast for sandwiches it was lovely.

tonight im making this:

and stirfry: carrot slivers, thinly sliced yellow squash, fresh spinach, 1 lb sliced tofu, baby bok choy, belgian endive, chopped celery, snap peas. tossed in olive oil, toasted sesame oil, and tamari. i eyeball it and test taste.
i put the tofu in first and cook it on high til it browns then i add the rest and stir often, it will stick. when done i hit it with some paprika and or freshly ground pepper... yum

as you can see im going through a tofu phase.
tomorrow is my lasagna and chocolate cake...more yum

moonshine 05-15-2006 08:16 PM

cauliflower, tomatos and peas in a coconut curry sauce.

pandora665 05-15-2006 10:04 PM

It's funny, we're having the exact same thing as a pp - well, differently arranged, though -->
cream of asparagus soup and grilled cheese sandwiches

scarlettrose 05-15-2006 10:35 PM

mmm....everything everyone is making sounds so good....

not sure what will be for dinner yet....i'm still at work....

frog 05-16-2006 09:38 AM

We had a lentil soup with tomatos and onions over basmati rice, with homemade whole wheat bread and romaine salad with vinegared cucumbers.


philomom 05-16-2006 10:06 AM

I had a leftover bit of pot roast. I put it in the blender as a base for tonight's beef stew. So the crockpot is simmering away.
We are having a cool weather week here in Atlanta, so warm stew should taste just fine tonight.

Alkenny 05-16-2006 11:27 AM

Last night was BBQ beef sandwiches, corn on the cob and couscous.
Tonight is 'meat'loaf, baked potatoes and a salad loaded with mushrooms and avacado.

saratc 05-16-2006 11:40 AM

Last night was baked lemon pepper chicken, brown rice, and cabbage with olive oil and sea salt.

Tonight will be pan-seared cod with ginger-scallion-soy sauce topping, brown rice, zucchini, and turkey carcass broth.

BlueStateMama 05-16-2006 04:59 PM

Last night was roasted salmon w/ lemon, roasted broccoli and Thai noodles. Tonight is beef stroganoff (in the crockpot) with egg noodles and a green salad (w/ Newman's Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing.)

AmyC 05-16-2006 05:41 PM

We're having pan-fried tilapia on lentil pancakes.

Alkenny 05-17-2006 11:16 AM
