Last night we had tacos and Amy's organic black refried beans (which are awesome, BTW).

I'm still trying to figure out what we'll have tonight. Maybe I can convince DH to grill hamburgers...

Last night was roasted veggie minestrone soup (I put some chicken in too.)

Tonight is asian-marinated roast salmon, roasted broccoli and sesame noodles.:

Last night was braised short ribs and root vegetables, served over egg noodles. Green beans, too.

Tonight will be shrimp scampi over fettucine, with.... I wish I had asparagus, but I don't. Maybe broccoli?

I'll probably also bake some cookies for dessert, pumpkin muffins for all of our work/school packed lunches, and maybe some bread.

We do breakfast for dinner a lot. I like it better at night than in the morning.
Tonight we're having meatloaf, baked potatoes, artichokes and crescent rolls.

I had a tiny leftover steak--it got separated from its parent steak last night when DH and I were having steak, so he saved it for me to cook today. Also leftover rice. And beans and corn. And, on a whim, a fried egg. I'm pregnant, what can I say?

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

We are down to bare bones, as I am going shopping tomorrow and I refuse to go when there are still choices in the freezer and pantry!

DH won't be home tonight. I will have Morningstar Farms "Veggie Bites" and my kids will have Morningstar Farms "Chick'n Nuggets" and sliced apples, and maybe a cheese stick.

Doing my best every day with DH , DD (11) , and DS (4)

Last night: Grass fed beef chili w/ pintos in it. Topped w/ shredded cheddar and sour cream. We also had (weirdly enough) a broth of pastured chicken, roasted red peppers, strained tomatoes, and cream whirled in the Cuisinart because I had to use some of that stuff up. So soup and chili...not exactly a traditional pairing, but it was a cold night so it worked out okay

Dinner tonight:
Fajita style steak w/ portabello mushrooms and onions. I'm out of green pepper but I wish we had some!

Side will be sesame broccoli.

This sounds really good! I love pork chops. Would you mind sharing the sweet/sour cream sauce? Gosh, you have some great recipes! Seems like I always think what you're cooking sounds good :-)
Tonight I'm either making quesidillas, beans and salad, or pancakes and bacon....depending on how tired I am after work today, and what everyone is in the mood for when I get home.
