Can you believe it is June already? I can't decide what we are having and I need to make my new menu plan so I was coming to get inspiration and realized what day it was!

Anyway, what's for dinner everyone? :

I already have dinner going since I am using the slow cooker today.

Slow Cooker Beef Brisket
New potatoes
Slow cooked southern style green beans
Yeast rolls
Apple Cobbler and vanilla ice cream -- my neighbor is moving and gave us a huge can of apples, so I think they will work in a cobbler.

Yesterday was the first chicken pick-up day at our local farm, so last night was roasted chicken, potato gratin, and mixed greens salad with goat cheese and tomatoes.

Tonight will be Thai food.

Wow. Everyone's dinners sound so yummy. I am hoping to get some creative ideas from this thread.

Tonight we had shrimp, spinach, and cheese quesadillas and balsamic roasted potatoes.

For the menu this week is: tortilla soup w/ cornbread; pancakes, veggie sausages and cantelope; tofu and spinach in peanut sauce over brown rice. That's all I've got so far. I need to do some menu planning.

No idea what's on the menu for tonight. I've got a million ideas but no energy to make any of them.

Last night we had left over homemade potato-leek soup.

Tonight is chicken thighs and legs seasoned and roasted with blue and red potatoes, cauliflower, carrots and garlic. Homemade juice ice pops for dessert.

Tomorrow is Trader Joes organic tomato and roasted red pepper soup with turkey and cheese sandwiches. Strawberries and whipped cream for dessert.

Thursday is (mostly) organic vegetable stir fry over organic basmati rice...might throw in a little lean sliced beef...not too sure.

Chicken cutlets, dipped in flour, then a mixture of egg and dijon mustard, then whole wheat breadcrumbs. Then baked.

With: Corn on the cob, baked potatoes with sour cream, and chickpeas sauteed with onion.

I loved the chicken. Sooo good.

We ate out last night, friends are in town visiting. I made an all-market and -garden breakfast, though - omelette aux fines herbes with tomato-garlic scape concasse. I could eat that every day, honestly. I need to go get some good Gruyere; then it would be perfect.

Tomorrow night we're making duck and shrimp gumbo.

Monday was fajita steak salad (I roasted onions, corn, and red pepper and tossed it with thinly sliced grilled steak and avacado.)

Tuesday - southwestern turkey burgers (crushed up tortilla chips and mixed with extra lean ground turkey, an egg and salsa) - topped w/ homemade salsa and chopped avacado and oven baked sweet potato "fries"

Tonight - yoga night for me, frozen tortellini & sauce for DH and the kids

Thursday - Chicken curry w/ veggies on basmati rice

Friday - out with my parents

Hi Y'all. I'm joining this thread hoping to get dinner ideas. We generally eat well, but I'm getting bored with things lately. I'm already seeing several things that sound really good.

Sunday night was pork tenderloin marinated in an Asian-style marinade (soy sauce type), garlic flower buds, roasted potatoes. Strawberries for dessert.

Monday night I made baby back ribs, cole slaw and corn on the cob. My kids love ribs and corn on the cob, so they ate well. And then slept well too!

Last night I made pasta with caramelized fennel and Italian sausage on it, and DH and I had a salad: baby greens, tomatoes, spiced walnuts, goat cheese, balsamic viniagrette. That is more or less our standard summer salad. I make my own spiced nuts, if anyone wants the recipe LMK as it is very quick and easy.

Tonight it will probably be scrambled eggs b/c DH won't be home. He doesn't like beans or eggs, so we eat those on evenings when he'll be gone.

I went grocery shopping last night and forgot to take the grocery list with me - so I didn't get the chicken that I wanted to make sometime this week.

BlueStateMama - do your turkey burgers stay together? Mine always crumble apart on the grill - I've tried adding bread crumbs or oatmeal and an egg to the mix before I form the burgers and they still fall apart.

I planned on making tostadas with leftover brisket made earlier in the week. Well, we did not having any leftover. I found a pitiful eye of round roast at the bottom of the freezer for today.

Slow cooker Mexican Pot Roast(shredded fot tostadas or soft tacos)
Homemade Mexican Rice
Refried Beans with cheese
