I always make steak sandwiches with ours. Hence why we're having them tonight. I just slice the steak on a roll, sautee some peppers and onions and put on top of the steak. Top it all with cheese and broil for a few minutes. I love them.

It's really cool here, so tonight I'll bake up a big batch of macaroni and cheese. Not sure yet what the sides will be....

Tonight will be nachos I think. That's what planned anyways, but it doesn't sound real good.

I made this really yummy mexi casserole last night - crumbled spicy sausage, can of pintos, can of tomatoes, can of green chilies, paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic and onion powder, some water and baked for 30 minutes. (Can you tell I was using whatever I had on hand? ) Served over rice. The family loved it, so I'll be making that one again.

Tonight is the last of the stuffed peppers we made last summer. I found them while cleaning out a freezer yesterday. Steamed cabbage on the side. It's a little cooler today, so this should be just right. Oh, and awesome blackberry cheesecake I made for dessert.

My youngest read a Rachael Ray recipe in a magazine and wanted to make it with me. It was surprisingly *delish*. It was a meatloaf thing (eggs & breadcrumbs) with shredded montery jack cheese, salsa, garlic, roasted red peppers, salt, pepper and cilantro. Added a big red leaf lettuce salad and we were set.

Today was TJs Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup with some toasted garlic whole wheat bread to dip.

Tomorrow is spaghetti with turkey meatballs

Thursday is Turkey Burgers with cheese, fruit salad, and if it's not too hot (and it shouldn't be) oven baked Sweet Potato "fries"

Friday I'm going out to eat with my boyfriend, who's coming home from 2.5 weeks in the National Guard (ds will be with his dad for the weekend).

I'm liking the sound of that bacon and squash dish above... I'm going to have to try that.

We've had a few good dishes lately. I made mexican style spicy shrimp burritos - added rice/corn/tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, cilantro, avocado on the tortillas, and DH's killer margaritas. Another night was halibut with asparagus wrapped in parchment and baked - got that from a recent Bon Appetit issue. It was really good. Then we've had a few nights of various leftovers recently.

Tomorrow I have to come up with something non-leftovers again, so we'll see. Maybe something with chicken tenders I have in the freezer. I'm going to scan back over this thread for some ideas.

I have a pot roast in the slowcooker right now. So we'll have roast and veggies for dinner tonight. I'll probably shred the left over meat tomorrow for roast beef sandwiches.

Last night was frozen raviolis and sauce.

Tonight will be a broccoli/chicken/cheddar bake and green salad

Out on Friday

Saturday - chicken florentine and a tomato and fresh mozz salad

Soup on Friday/Sat/Sunday lunch - I'm using half the chicken meat for tonight's dinner, making a stock, and then a soup tomorrow - I'll add CSA veggies that are leftover as the weekend progresses.

DH requested the "Italian beef and bowtie recipe" that I make, so I guess we will have that. I do not have any bowties, so I will use some other shape of pasta.

Italian beef and pasta skillet
sauteed zuchini
fresh corn on cob
leftover sweet baby greens salad

I'm jealous of you guys who have kids and DPs making requests!

It's up to me alone to make up the menu, and half the time I catch crap for it. "Ugh, you know I hate peppers!" or "Didn't we have this last month" or my favorite "This 'meal' has no meat in it! Why not!?!?":

That's my fault, I need to speak with my sister (the 19yo who lives with me and does no cooking of her own).

Anyway--Back on track!

Today we're having Thai (out with the boyfriend! Yay!). But I have some red, yellow and blue potatoes that are starting to go south....I might try to make those crash potatoes. BF and I are both big fans of salty, crispy food.

Tomorrow it'll be summer stuff--hotdogs, burgers, watermellon and ice cream

Sunday will be dip night-garlic naan dipped in lentils, apples dipped in peanut butter, grapes dipped in yogurt...

Monday I'm thinking cold pasta and bean salad, to which I might add some grilled chicken or tuna from a pouch.

Tuesday will be a crock pot chicken, since I'm working, and hopefully I'll have a good idea for the rest of the week from this thread.

Last night I roasted a local free-range organic chicken, with mashed potatoes and gravy, and salad from our CSA. Tonight it's more salad, with the no-knead bread and maybe some cheese on the side. Tomorrow, chorizo tostadas.

We had Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu last night. It was pretty good and simple. We grilled a few extra chicken breasts so I probably will do something with that tonight.

Last night was chicken florentine and noodles (I'm in a comfort food mood, lately) Tonight is supposed to be a cook-out at our swim/tennis co-op...but if we have more storms, probably out for dinner.
