We grilled steaks last night with potato salad and baked beans.

Tonight is going to be pizza on homemade wheat crust with pesto from my basil .. I'll probably put chicken on dh's part and keep mine just cheese and tomato.

Last night we had fried eggs & toast with strawberry preserves (and found out that the babe is allergic to strawberries, eek).

I have no idea about tonight. Maybe some kind of baked chicken? I'm really hoping my mom will invite us over for dinner so I don't have to worry about it.

I made a really great pork roast last night. It was marinating for a day first. I seared it both sides in my huge dutch oven and scattered parsnip, turnips, carrots, and sweet potatoes around. Poured a cup of broth over, roasted a couple hours at 300. Then I made a chunky sauce with a couple cups of homemade applesauce (chunky), a pinch of cinnamon, ginger, some sage, apple cider vinegar and brown sugar. Cooked it down to thick and poured that over the roast and slow cooked another 2 hours or so. It was *so* good.

And buttermilk biscuits to go with

My DD was too. I kept her away from them for about a year and she can eat a little now.

Last night we ate out because I didn't feel like cooking. Tonight we are making sausage and bowties with some fresh bread. I have to meal plan for the rest of the week today.

Did the menu plan and shopping for the week. We are on a very tight grocery budget, so it took some careful planning!

Tonight - red beans and rice - using turkey sausage and brown rice
Tuesday - Tuna melts with tomato soup
Wednesday- Stir fry with veggies, turkey sausage & wheat noodles
Thursday- Salmon patties with mashed potatos & green beans

Last night we had an omelet with tomatoes from the garden, onions from the garden, and red bell peppers from someone else's garden. We had homefries and apple slices to go with it. Marc cooked.

Tonight we're having health nut rice with peas and lemon garlic mahi-mahi.

Last night we had butter herb trout, olive oil herb pasta and fries (dh was cooking). And one of the last cucumbers straight out of the garden.

Tonight I'm not sure. My meal planning has sucked the last few weeks.

Last night we had spaghetti instead of the chicken noodle soup. Tonight will be the chicken noodle soup.
It's been hard to really plan out my menus right now. HOpefully things will settle down and it will get easier.

Here it is, Feta Chicken Bake. We haven't had it before, but we're a feta loving family, so I'm not too worried

No zucchini in the original recipe, but I may add it in...or saute it on the stove..

Tonight hubby requested Steak Diane, which I've never made or eaten. I'm using this recipe: http://www.elise.com/recipes/archive...teak_diane.php and I'm making it with some ribeyes we had in the freezer. Hopefully it'll be as good as the recipe looks.

last night we had lamb and mushroom mosctacholli(sp?) with ricotta it was super easy!

brown some ground lamb, drain, mix with mushroom pasta sauce-toss with cooked mosctacholli noodles and layer half in a casserole dish-then layer with ricotta that has been mixed with garlic, parsley and one egg-then layer the rest of the noodles then top with cheese-bake till bubbly!

it was so good and the leftovers are DIVINE!

Tonight we are having pizza. Roasted peppers and chicken on one, and cheeses on the other. I made the dough last night, chopped everything up and the sauce is just a quick whirl in the blender. I need a day to spend with my kids and not worry about food prep

Tonight I am finally going to stop being lazy and stressed and cook a yummy dinner! :

We will be having Roasted Chicken with New Potatoes and Arugala. I may make some green beans on the side, not sure yet. I will see what looks yummy at the market. I am also making some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for dessert. Yum.
