I think I will do a beef stew with the leftover roast beef from tonight's dinner.

This week I had a big success with some pork chops (without bones...not sure what they are called without bones) I cut into strips and mixed with cut up apples, some brown sugar, ginger and a bit of soy sauce. (baked it) I still have some more in my freezer (really good price), so I might try that again.

Tonight I will probably make a brown rice chicken & cheese casserole out of the chicken I deboned last night and the pot of broth. I might make chicken noodle soup, but I am really in the mood for something more substantial (having my period...I always want heavier food). It depends how I feel and what the weather is like. I usually make a bit of gravy, thin it with some milk and throw in uncooked rice, cheese, a bag of thawed frozen veggies, and a bit of chicken and bake it until the rice is done.

DP and I are going out to dinner which we haven't done in ages (w/o the kids, to a real restaurant). I think we're going to a BBQ/Cajun place -- we've never been there before but the reviews on our local wiki look great. We'll probably give the kids some Annie's mac and cheese before we go, and Grammy (our sitter) will have salad.

I am going to visit my mom this weekend, but we haven't decided if we will leave tonight or in the morning. I have a dinner plan either way.

If we stay:
Chicken Tortilla Soup(using a Costco chicken)
Chips
Salsa
Sliced strawberries

If we go tonight:
Dinner on the road

I am obsessed in every way with anything in a tortilla or on top of tortilla chips . Today I put the rest of the other nights burrito stuffings on the top of chips and shredded some cheese that I made myself on the top! Mmmmm

Tonight the kids and I are having breakfast foods: Waffles, I make blueberry cinnamon syrup, and eggs, sausage for DD cause she can't have eggs. And probably fruit

Umm, why am I really loving that picture of saucy chicken with the cream cheese and mustard?! I have decided that using store cream cheese in small amounts here and there is so very yummy and makes things much creamier and yummier. My kids like it too, and I can finally make "healthier" sauces with cheese because the cream cheese makes it a better texture they like.

Tonight is home made pizza so long as the bread machine wasn't disconnected by the cleaning people :

Tomorrow is coconut curry chicken with chickpeas, cauliflower and carrots in the slow cooker. My kids are rice fiends so I'll probably serve it on some brown basmati rice.
