Tonight is breakfast. Hashbrowns, sausage links, toast and eggs. And probably fruit.

We had leftover spaghetti tonight, with a hodgepodge of raw veggies & fruit to go with it.

DS1 has requested nachos for tomorrow night, so I'm going to try to find a way to make a semi-healthy version with Amy's organic black refried beans, extra-lean ground beef, light on the cheese, and lots of veggies.

Something with zucchini and chicken. I am torn between zucchini pancakes and plain grilled chicken breasts, or chicken sandwiches and a pasta salad with zucchini, red onion, feta, black olives, tomato, etc.

I made some yummy meatballs! Natural lean ground beef, spinach,onion,garlic, green pepper,ground flaxseed, mozarella cheese,egg,milk, and bread crumbs. Easy ways to sneak veggies in for DS. After baking the meatballs I simmer them in tomato sauce. Also, with the red sauce he doesn't see some of those "green things", lol!

Chicken, tossed in vodka sauce, simmered in olive oil, garlic and onions, then browned, and served over Rotini with vodka sauce.

It's DH's favorite!

I was actually all over the map with dinner tonight. DP, when I mentioned chicken, asked if it was going to be Buffalo chicken sandwiches, so I took that hint. Having them with some cheesy ranch potatoes and green beans. Kids are having a plain broiled chicken breast instead of buffalo style.

I also made stuffed zucchini for tomorrow night -- the rest of the family's going to Day Out with Thomas, and I will be out running errands/shopping/enjoying Alone Time tomorrow, so it'll be good to have a dinner all prepped and ready to go.

Last night was a chicken, mushroom over rice dish.
Tonight we had chinese takeout - it's been a crazy day.
We're going to a LLL conference this weekend, so tomorrow and Saturday will be whatever they're serving - the best part is that I won't have to plan it or clean it up.

Last 2 nights was a rockin' veggie-full stir fry on top of a bed of Emerald Sesame Kale on top of brown basmati rice. MMMMMMM!

Tonight is a porkchop/mushroom soup thing over elbow noodles and maybe a salad or I could thaw out some oven roasted farm fresh asparagus/brocolli/cauliflower. I feel like something I shouldn't mention in polite company, so I'm going easy on me.

Last night we had quesadillas. Tonight we are eating up the leftovers from the lasagna the other night. Though, I don't think there is enough left for everyone so one of us will have something else, not quite sure what yet. I had the lasagna for lunch so it will probably be me.

Sorry I missed your request! I just didn't even see it. Okeydokey, here goes.

Buffalo chicken sandwiches: just marinate chix breast in hot sauce (we like Frank's) and some butter (we use Smart Balance). This time I also threw in some white vinegar and extra cayenne pepper, to make sure it was spicy enough. I marinated for several hours (6-7?). THen just broil, and serve on buns with blue-cheese dressing and whatever other toppings you like. You can also do the chicken on salad, with carrots and celery and blue cheese dressing. A relatively healthy (healthier, at least) version of hot wings.

Cheesy ranch potatoes is something I totally made up to try to feed the kids with their chicken. I just took leftover parcooked (in the microwave) potato chunks, put 'em in a pan, poured ranch dressing over the top, and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Put them in the oven until they were hot and bubbly. Oddly, the kids both rejected them but DP and I gobbled 'em up. Go figure.

My stuffed zukes: took out the innards, sauteed it with some green onion and garlic, added bread crumbs (actually fresh pita crumbs, what I had on hand), feta cheese, a smidge of lemon juice, some oregano, salt and pepper. Stuffed it back into the zuke boats and topped the whole thing w/mozzarella. We haven't actually had them yet, they MUST be tonight's dinner! So I don't know how they tasted. So be forewarned -- you are getting a previously un-vetted VikingKVinna original -- could rock, could suck!

Holler if you have any Qs.

All of it sounds yummy! I want to try the zucchini for sure. We have a LOT of feta cheese to use up.
