I'll start a new thread for a new month.

I'm going to make a potato and spinach curry tonight -- I will probably throw in either some chickpeas or lentils, too.

I was planning on doing a stir fry with left over leg of lamb... but I've neglected going to the grocery store the past couple days so I'm not really sure... it might be a very simple stir fry

I missed class today due to a migraine, and I really don't feel like cooking dinner. I think I am going to roast the pork tenderloin I planned for today and let dh make the sides when he gets home.

Roasted herb-crusted pork tenderloin
mashed sweet potatoes ( or white if dh prefers)
steamed italian green beans

Ben and Jerry's "Half Baked" frozen yogurt for dessert. Yum!

We had some SUPER delicious quesadillas. I put baby spinach, avocado chunks, cut-up cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, diced purple onions, and cheddar cheese in them. Best quesadillas ever!

this week so far we've eaten:

jerk pork tenderloin, with glazed carrots and broccoli and cheese sauce - would have been better with suggestions from my other thread though.. but I had all the stuff to make cheese sauce

yesterday was sausages, mac and cheese, and kale with garlic. the sausages were supposed to be chicken, artichoke, and pepper jack, but instead turned out to be something weird with peanuts - the butcher must have picked up the wrong one.

day before was lamb burgers (inspired by a real simple recipe) spiced with oregano, mint and cumin
quinoa salad with lemon/olive oil, cucumber, tomato, green onion, green bell pepper and french goat feta
olives and store bought hummus

I'm the parent helper at DS's preschool today, which always wipes me out so yesterday I made a tuna casserole (with homemade cream-of-mushroom soup, though! ) for tonight's dinner. I will only have to pop it in the oven and make a veggie or two to go with it -- probably peas and salad.

I have class until 5pm then the horrendous commute in rush hour traffic, so I won't be home until after 6:30 (if I am lucky)!

We will be having something from the freezer:

Stuffed Shells(ground turkey, artichoke hearts, spinach, parmesan) with tomato/basil sauce

Steamed veggies (broccoli, carrots, asparagus, red bell pepper)

Garlic Toast

Sloppy lentils and a big salad.

Last night I made these delicious pepper/onion/tomato sandwiches. My mom had made homemade salsa that was too vinegary, so I drained and rinsed and then sauteed it up and put it in buns. YUM!

Last night we had Barbecued Pulled Pork Sandwiches on Burger Buns, corn, carrot sticks, and apple slices.

Tonight is Italian Meatloaf with Fresh Basil and Provolone, sweet potato fries, and Brussels sprouts.

We didn't get home until after 8 last night so we had chicken nuggets and grapes.

Tonight we'll be having the sloppy joes, fries and corn. Or maybe cauliflower.

Tonight were having:

Ranch chicken breast
carrots but not sure how?
Homemade bread and not sure what else.


Does anyone know some things I can do with baby carrots? I have a bag but noone wants to dip them in ranch, or eat them steamed. So I was hoping maybe I could do something else with them to add a little flavor and my spoiled kids and hubby would eat them. So if you have any idea PLEASE let me know! Emily

Sometimes I shred them and add them to salads or stir-fry. I guess that wouldn't work for tonight's meal, but it's a thought for the future.

What about Carrot Slaw or Honey Mustard Carrots?

If you're not adverse to some extra butter and honey, you can turn lightly steamed carrots into exciting 'Ruth Carrots' (named after my fab grandma ). After the carrots are steamed give them a good dose of butter, pepper, grated orange/lemon peel, some citrus juice (a tablespoon or two) and some honey. Stir it around and put in in the oven for a minute or two. I can't bear plain steamed carrots, but Ruth Carrots are all right!

Yesterday we had leftover 'cow-corn-coconut curry'. Tonight I'm working late so we're having bean burritos. I pre-made the beans on Sunday so I'll just have to make the tortillas once I get home.
