We were going to have Asian beef and noodles, but I accidentally got tenderloins out instead. So we're having that. Probably with roasted potatoes and cauliflower that we didn't have last night. And maybe salad.

We have a tight schedule tonight. I have volunteer work until 5:15 and then we have breastfeeding class at 6:30pm. So I am going to make a pizza before I go to volunteer and DH will stick it in the oven when I am on my way home. I think I will do sauteed peppers, onions and sausage on top. Oh and some arugula salad on the side, had that last night and it was sooo tasty. Arugula tossed with chopped basil, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Served with a few thick slices of fresh mozzarella. MMMMM....

Jenna in love with my DH Jon, loving our 2.5 year old, Caroline Tulip, and expecting another little one in August!

So far this week we've had:
Monday: Japanese curry with rice and grilled hamburger patties
Tuesday: Out for sushi
Wednesday: Grilled Turkey burgers (with onions, zucchini, mushrooms all in the patties); sauteed zucchini, yellow squash, shitakes, and onions; steamed broccoli (kids won't eat squash); cucumber/tomato salad; and for dessert we had strawberries with fresh whipped cream and shaved chocolate
Thursday: don't know yet
Friday: pizza night with friends (we all bring our fav ingredients, DH makes the crust), I'm also going to try this new recipe for Jalapeno popper dip with crostini, and maybe a huge salad with greens, chopped dry salami, peppers, parmesan cheese and a tomato vinegarette

PLEASE share this recipe if you can (if it's not a copyright violation ), and if it turns out well? That sounds scrumptious! Thanks!

I think tonight will be pan-seared mahi in a red curry/coconut broth with lime and cilantro (if only I had some lemongrass), green beans, and (ginger-y) brown rice.

I'm planning to try to find time to bake cookies today, and if I *really* get my ducks in a row, I might bake some coconut custard, too...

Tonight we are going to try the baked lentil recipe that floats around on MDS. I will make brown rice and a green salad on the side so if the kids won't eat the lentils, they can at least have rice and salad.

Yes, and it *always* turns out great. I have tried many meatloaf recipes, and this is definitely my favorite by far. Here ya go:

1 lb. lean or extra lean ground beef - lean is very important!
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1 can diced tomatoes, drained (I use the basil, oregano, & garlic kind)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 egg
Ketchup
Brown sugar

Mix first 6 ingredients together well. Pack into loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Meanwhile, mix together ketchup and brown sugar for sauce (to taste). Pour off any grease on top of meatloaf. Top meatloaf with sauce. Bake for another 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!

Did you know this stuff has HFCS in it? I had no clue until the other day I just decided to make sure they didn't add anything besides the spices in there and sure enough it was the second ingredient! I was shocked! Maybe you don't care, sorry for bringing it up if you don't , but I was clueless so thought I would say that just in case!

Thank you thank you thank you!

Rachel, I recently bought canned tomatoes and THEN read the label and saw the HFCS -- I couldn't believe it. So now I am very careful to get the kind with just tomatoes (when we can afford it, I get the Muir Glen Fire-roasted kind). It's unbelievable what they will stick sugar and HFCS into, isn't it?!?!

Well at least you know what you are getting with those! I have them some, too, but don't want DS having the HFCS.
