Last night we had homemade chicken gorditas (using one of those kits). They were fantastic. I added sauteed red and green peppers and onion.

We recently started eating chicken again and I can't get enough. Tonight I would love grilled chicken slathered in some sort of orange juice/BBQ sauce mixture with corn on the cob and baked beans. Yum. I can't stop thinking about it but it requires a trip to the store.

We're having organic baked french fries with beans and cheese and salad for DH and I...the kids will have fries w/ chik nuggets, watermelon and strawberries. Kind of a weird dinner, but Cole has his music thingie tonight and ever since DH suggested the beans on fries thing the other day I thought it sounded so good!

I have to use up some arugula and garlic scapes from last week's CSA box, so I'm going to try a pesto with those. Wish me luck! I'll serve that on w.w. angel hair pasta for DP and, truth be told, will probably have regular red sauce and meatballs for me and the kids. :

last night we had a butterflied chicken on the grill with BBQ sauce, a green salad, cooked carrots, a slice of HM sourdough bread and sauteed apples.

tonight we are eating out 'cause we have some shopping to do when dh gets home from work. he doesn't usually get home till 6:30 or 7:00pm so i don't want a mess of dishes waiting when we get home.

Last night, we went out to a local country-type buffet. It was yummy: but not really healthy.


DC are requesting spaghetti with meat sauce--- we will have grren salad and garlic bread to go with it.

Oh, I wish you lived near me so I could give it to you... I'm not a fan of arugula and while DP is, I don't think he will eat all this pesto. It turned out well, if you like arugula. Then we got another bunch of arugula in last night's CSA!

Tonight we're having burgers (beef for me, black bean for DP), parnsip fries, leftover mac salad and coleslaw, and then rhubarb streusel cake for dessert. the kids will prolly have leftovers too -- spag and meatballs and/or salmon patties and rice.

Red beans and rice with spicy sausage and corn fritters.

Tomorrow, rouladen with potato dumplings and red cabbage
Sunday it'll be Fruited Lamb in the crockpot and Monday a pot roast Greek-style with lots of oregano and garlic.

Wow, I think that's my first meal plan ever! Just happened to pull a bunch of stuff out of the freezer today.

Tonight: quiche with asparagus and leeks

Tomorrow: chicken, probably roasted, with some kind of potato and maybe salad. How's that for a wishy-washy plan?

We will have leftover spaghetti with meat sauce and salad for lunch. For dinner, I think I am going to make breakfast --- Baked apple puff pancake, grilled sausage, sliced fresh peaches.

Tomorrow-- I will do a slow cooker brisket with new potatoes, fresh green beans, yeast rolls.

I am off to study and referee dh and the dc.
