Last night (which wasn't October yet, but oh well) we had lemon garlic pork tenderloin, steamed fresh corn on the cob, green salad, and garlic rolls. I'm still tasting garlic today! :

Tonight we're having chicken fried rice & green beans.

Baked Ziti with Vegetables and Mushrooms. We do this one often, and add/sub veggies we have on hand. Tonight we'll add zucchini to the veggies already called for, since we're still pulling them out of the garden!

Beef casserole with squash, sweetcorn and beans (and a heckuva lot of paprika), served with garlic mashed potatoes and cabbage, and apple pie

Tonight is chicken cacciatore with crisped polenta and a salad. :

Breakfast this morning was a quiche made from leftover rice, diced bell peppers and onions and a hefty dose of cheese. DS requested it again for lunch, so that's probably what we'll have, since I'm lazy.

We had awesome homemade french onion soup on Monday, and last night I made some baked western style ribs. They turned out awesome! A big hit with our guests.

Tonight was SUPPOSED to be Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Thighs. SUPPOSED to be. However, teh chicken had been in the freezer in the original packaging since May. (Deep-freeze). My mom said, "Yuck!"

So, instead, we just had bacon adn eggs. YUM!

Mmm...tonight is the official first beef stew of autumn night. I'm so excited :. Hoping to get it started ASAP so it can simmer all day. I also just pulled a great loaf of sourdough bread out of the oven to go with it.

tonight i can't decide yet, maybe from scratch macaroni and cheese with tuna and peas casserole or maybe homemade pizza w/fresh mozarella or maybe butternut squash and swiss cheese bake... i can't decide.

this am we had irish oatmeal that was soaked overnight in water and whey and spiced up this am with cinnomon, cream and lots of maple syrup.

Today I'm going to boil the carcass to make stock and then make chicken and dumplings.

Tonight I'm defrosting some homemade spaghetti sauce I have in the freezer and serving that over spinach pasta. I'm thinking about making some fresh bread to use for garlic bread.

DH made fettuccine alfredo last night with sauted asparagus. Tonight we are making beef and veggie stir fry over rice. I'll probably pick up some fresh bread on the way home from work too.

I'm trying to remember what we made this week. Enchiladas verdes, moroccan meatballs served with rice. We are smoking a pork shoulder tomorrow and tonight we are having tri tip sandwiches and mushrooms and I'm making apple butter today.

I'm back!

Thursday night we ate at Dairy Queen. Thursdays are fast food night for us, because DD has ballet, tap, and gymnastics, and DS1 has soccer practice. NO time to make or eat anything decent.

Last night we had chicken & tortilla dumplings and lima beans with bacon. We had leftovers of the same stuff tonight.
