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?

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

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=6139.0

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

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

FABULOUS.

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.

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.)
