Rustic Cabbage Soup is the one I made the other night, mostly because I didn't have many groceries on hand but I had all the ingredients for this. But also take a look at Healing Cabbage Soup, which I made a few months ago and liked better. Or you could combine the two and just throw all kinds of veggies in there. They were both good, especially on stormy cold blizzardy nights like we're having!

HTH!

Last night we had black beans and rice, with sweet-potato-cheese quesadillas.

Tonight I think I'll make a spinach pesto for some pasta -- I need to use up some summer squash that DP brought home, so I'll saute that and toss it with the pasta, maybe with some fresh tomato too. Oooh, and I think I have a jar of arty hearts hiding in the pantry. Mmmm...this is sounding better and better! :

Well I'm sure I read it when I went over the 2nd page, I just haven't looked back to the old posts this week. And I didn't have cabbage in the fridge when I read it the first time either. Thank you!

ETA: Tonight we're having a rubber chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy, asparagus, and cauliflower. Tomorrow I'll stretch the chicken for use in a homemade chicken pot pie (with a butter crust....omg the crust is to die for!), and the day after it will be used to make stock for mulligatawny soup (a new recipe for me.)

Flaky Butter Pie Crust
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 11 ounces (about 2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups raw rice, dried beans, or pie weights
  • Dissolve salt in water. Refrigerate. Place butter and flour in a mixer bowl. Chill bowl, ingredients, and mixer paddle blade in freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Using the paddle blade and the slowest mixer speed, cut the butter into the flour until it looks like flakes of oatmeal. With the mixer running, slowly pour in the cold salted water and mix until the dough forms a ball. Divide the dough in two (or three for a thinner crust), flatten and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Roll out one dough disk at a time, leaving the other in the fridge. Put into a 9-inch pie pan and press well. Do your edge detail. Return the crust to the refrigerator or freezer while rolling out the next disk. The crusts must be cold when they go into the hot oven, so do not leave one out while working on another. Next decide if you want your crust pre-baked or not. If you do, go on to step 5. If not, fill your crust at this point and bake according to your recipe directions.
  • Place a piece of parchment over the crust and fill with rice or beans to hold it down in the pan. Bake 20 minutes. Remove the rice/beans and press the paper liner to force the crust down into the pan, then remove the liner. Prick each crust several times with a fork. Bake 5-10 minutes more.
It's soooo buttery and yummy, and no shortening. Yum!!!

Last night was red sauce from the freezer on shell pasta, and cheesecake. Tonight is whatever I can round up from the cabinets (we need to go grocery shopping, soon!).

We had grilled pork chops and garlic mashed potatoes last night!

It'll be chicken something tonight - I'm undecided!

Hmm, nothing sounds good tonight. I might let the kids choose. Which means tacos.

We'll be having gumbo with rice (just quick veggie gumbo (from cooking light) -- not the version that takes me all day grandma taught me) and crab claws.

Married to a wonderful man and we have 1 adorable baby girl (8/30/2010) and 2 furbabies.

My whole family has been sick for days. We've hardly had any appetites at all. I managed to get down 1/2 a cup of cereal for dinner last night. I don't know what the rest of them had. It was all I could do to take care of myself and my poor, hot, vomiting baby.

I am so looking forward to having the energy to cook and the desire to eat.:

Thank you, that is so sweet! Actually, I'm the one who started the thread about the chicken broth that you responded to, so thanks for that too! It is smelling good and not making me want to hurl, so that's a good sign...

Last night was a pasta with chicken sausage, carmelized onions, and swiss chard.

Tonight is a chicken and veggie curry, with basmati rice.

I always make my grilled cheese with grated sharp cheddar...and a little honey mustard and thinly sliced apples:

In fact, that's what's for dinner tomorrow night since dh is out of town and he hates sandwiches.

Tonight-Shrimp and crab au graten with homemade bread and a spinich salad.
Thursday-homemade "Leftover surprise" pizza and salad
Friday-breakfast-Ds will get to choose which breakfast I make
Last night-Lemon greek chicken with roasted potatoes and bell peppers, bread, and broccoli.

That's so sweet! My ds will be 6 next week and he's requested that he make his own cake this year.

Tonight we are having chicken parmesan for the adults, with pasta and homemade marinara, and caesar salad. For the kids, regular ol' chicken tenders (although I will sneak broccoli into the coating a la Jessica Seinfeld) with ranch. DD will probably have some pasta too.

Tonight is spaghetti and meatballs. Vegetable will probably be asparagus. I'll make some GF noodles for me, and no sauce (wah - I'm on an elimination diet). Last night I roasted a chicken so tomorrow I'm going to make soup. YUM.
