I have Brussels sprouts, green beans, spinach, asparagus, sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes, frozen broccoli, frozen corn, frozen peas, frozen mixed veggies.
Brussel sprouts are my vote, steamed then sauteed with onions in bacon grease - mmmmm, potatoes and cabbage...

Spicy ginger tomato chicken for dh, I needed to cook the chicken so I got that going in the crockpot. My kids prefer boneless chicken wouldn't normally cook two meals.We are having a friend and her LO over for dinner so I am making pizzas for the rest of us.:

That does sound good. Unfortunately I have no bacon, but since we love Brussels sprouts even without bacon that's what we're going to have. I think I'll roast them with some EVOO, salt, and pepper. Maybe I'll roast some cauliflower, too. (I went to the grocery store this afternoon....it just occured to me that you might wonder where the cauliflower was going to come from! )

Thanks!

I'm making homemade vegetable soup. I was going to make grilled cheese with it, but my DH ate all the cheese slices. I'll come up with something... :

Bummer. So do you have a bunch of leftover soup now that you don't like? I hate that.

Yeah, about 2 bowls full. Luckily I didn't make the whole recipe because I cut it in half.

Tonight we are probably going out to dinner for a friend's birthday.

Angel Chicken Ranch Alfredo

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 lb box of angel hair pasta, cooked
1 cup ranch dressing
1 cup parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp butter
1 cup light cream
1 cup frozen peas or pea pods, cooked

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Grill on George Foreman
(or other) grill while pasta is cooking. Meanwhile, melt butter in
saucepan; add cream and parmesan cheese, heating and stirring until the
cheese is melted. Add dressing; heat through. Stir in desired amount of
the cooked and drained pasta. (Do not rinse pasta, so the sauce will
stick to it better.) Cut the chicken in bite-size pieces and add to the
spaghetti mixture; add cooked pea pods and or peas.

Serves4

Yum, thanks! I think I'm going to add squash & bell pepper instead of peas--do you think that will work out? We're not pea fans around here.

I'm not sure because I've never had it! It's another new recipe for me. You could probably leave them out and do a different side if you want instead of mixing it in.

Inspired by an earlier post -

We're having boneless buffalo wings, the kids will have them without the sauce. Served with cornbread muffins (out the freezer), a spinach salad (spinach, tomatoes, onions, yellow peppers, carrots, maybe some cheese), roasted brocolli, and home-made french fries (oven baked).

That sounds awesome (and easy). I am definitely going to put that in my files and try it sometime. Thanks!

Last night I made a new mac and cheese recipe, which I really liked. Apple crisp that I made in the microwave and some asparagus. Eating out with my friend fell through, but we did all go sledding. :

Tonight we are going to my in-laws for venison.
