Last night was homemade mac and cheese, collard greens and hush puppies. Next time I make that, I'll add a ham steak, ooo doggie!

Today we're going to the county fair, so I expect we'll be full from crappy fair food, but what the heck. Most likely lots of veggies for dinner. We have beautiful beets and wax beans that need to be eaten!

Yesterday we had for dinner: some kind of veggie pizza, minus the cheese+cut up cantaloupe melon+cucumber slices+stir fried yellow string beans from the Vegetrian Family Cookbook. I happend to have a pre-made pizza dough in the fridge that needed to be used up as well as several veggies so I finely slices some spring onions+yellow zucchini+green bell pepper, mixed that with some olive oil+italian herbs+salt+pepper and put that onto of the tomato-sauce-topped pizza dough. As we were out of shredded cheese I omitted that one. But since everybody really liked it the way it was I was quite content about it.

Today we went out for dinner-Italian. DD had spaghetti Bolognese, DH had gratinated rigatoni and I had canelloni filled w/ricotta+spinach and we all shared a mixed garden salad.

Tomorrow will be some kind of indian dinner (in case it doesn't get too hot) as I bought several things at the Asian Market today

Arduinna, do you have a good recipe for the arroz mexicana?

Last night we had salads, supplemented later with guac and chips.

Tonight I think I am going to make the chili-lime chicken kabobs that Jessica posted about earlier in the thread, with either grilled or sauteed veggies (red and yellow bell peppers, zucchini) and some kind of rice.

I'm undecided tonight. We were going to have chicken nuggets and fries (homemade) but I'm not sure now.

Last night dh and I went out and I had a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and onions. OMG it was so good! I ate the rest of it for breakfast this morning.

Ooooh, B.O.B. pizza sounds really yummy! What kind of sauce do you use?

Tonight we'll be in Salamanca, NY, the only US city built on an Indian reservation. It is where Marc grew up, and we're going tonight to celebrate his grandmother's 90th birthday.

We were going to go out for dinner, but now Marc's sister is in the hospital with suspected kidney stones. So the plan is just to have the whole family to the house for hot dogs and whatever else we can come up with at the last minute.

Jessica, wife of Marc and Momma to Nikolai (7) and Nathaniel (6).  Expecting Olivia in August!

Tonight we'll have sloppy joes, and I'm making a double batch to feed the freezer with. I made an herbed lemon rice pilaf last night to take to a friend's house, but she already had potatoes ready to go when I got there, so I think we'll either have buns or rice pilaf as the base of our sloppy joes. Kinda strange, but better with whole grains!

Wow, will I ever be able to post daily?!

We grilled in saturday. The kids had small sausages, cucumber salad and cherry tomatoes. Us parents had beef tenderloin steaks, grilled zucchini+green bell peppers w/garlicky parsley oil, grilled baguette, turkey breast and cucumber salad. Oh, I just love outdoor cooking! :

Yesterday was a small dinner for the kids only as we went out for lunch (spareribs, grilled mixed veggies, cheese spaetzle, salad, ice cream ). They had sandwiches and cantaloupe melon slices.

Tonight we'll have zucchini soup with croutons and fruit for dessert.

I just make my own with tomato paste that I thin out with water. I usually start with olive oil and saute some garlic, then the tomato paste, italian seasoning (not alot for this type of pizza). I sometimes add a little sugar because I like a sweeter sauce.

Thats it.
