Tonight = lasagna + salad

we've been having salad greens with Other Stuff (fruit, hot dogs w/ no buns, tortillas, etc) for the last several nights... my kids totally dig it. Simple, and actually pretty cheap ~ I got a GIANT box for only about $3.50 and there's still a ton left.

Tonight we're having spaghetti, garlic bread and salad. I made the sauce this weekend and made a loaf of french bread last night so it'll be a quick meal.

Well we didn't have our carnitas the other night, just tacos with spanish rice, so I think I'll try the carnitas in empanadas tonight - with leftover rice.

last night was homemade veggie soup and breadsticks - soo good.

We're going to have a huge wilted-spinach salad tonight. We had the same thing a week or so ago and it tasted so good, and DP brought home a big box of organic baby spinach from the market today.

Tonight for us is a simple spaghetti with homemade sauce. Rolls, and maybe salad if I can get to the store. If not, the sauce has TONS of veggies in it.

Sauteed chickpeas and spinach over turkey tenderloins, with a large shredded red cabbage and romaine salad. The kids had brown rice with it as well, although I didn't.

tonight for us is grilled bbq tenderloin since we didn't eat it last night we ended up having chicken pieces with pasta and veggies. Were from the south so my husband is into frying everything we eat and i'm trying to break the habit slowly. So far hes fine with me changing our eating habits so thats good and a good start. Emily

I threw some chicken in the crockpot with onions, garlic, lemon, kalamata olives, white wine and oregano - smells pretty good! Will serve it with rice pilaf and I think I have some broccoli left.

Baking chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
