Tonight is baked garlic herb trout, rice, and whatever veggie looks good.

For tonight, there is a beef roast in the crockpot with mushrooms. I'll make jasmine rice for DD to go with and a huge salad with snow peas for me and DH to go with.

Tonight and tomorrow will both be left over days trying to clean out the fridge so we have room for the thanksgiving food!

Ugh, why is it so diffucult to post daily?!

On friday we had a late lunch of Spaghetti Bolognese and then went to our local family center for some crafting. Dinner there were Frankfurters' and potato salad as well as soft pretzles. I baked some brownies from this recipe and added some pecans that needed to be used -

On saturday we went to visit my grandparents and as DH and DD went to a concert afterwords I had a kind of picnic on the train with the kids - sliced apple, mandarin oranges, bananas and ham sandwiches.

On sunday we had a yummy lunch at my ILs - we had Tafelspitz with three different sauces (horseradish, egg-and-mustard sauce and egg-and-capers-sauce), potaoes and glazes carrots. : One of my favorite dishes ever!!
For dinner we ate out and had pizza as well as grilled calamari.

On monday (yesterday) we had some leftover chicken soup with pancake strips (have a look here under english and german pancakes)

Tonight we are going to have some kind of smoregasbord, I am simply to lazy to cook (and - DD already had warm lunch at kindergarten and DS and I ate leftover Spaghetti Bolognese). I am going to make some kind of acovado-and-shrimp-salad, cucumber salad, carrot salad, there will be various cheeses (manchego, goat cheese and cow's milk cheese with cilantro), lunch meat and salami, pickled vegetables and cornichon.


At the moment I am rather uninspired on what to cook and often decide what we are going to eat when pressured (like 30 mins before dinnertime )

ETA: Even though I often get hungry reading all your dinners

Yesterday was pasta with a vegetable-cream cheese-sauce (as I was out of crème fraiche *lol*) and as it's freezing cold over here (below 20°F, around -5 to -8°C) I will make a beef soup with 'pancake fädle' something very common in southern Germany and Austria.

I've got chicken I need to use and mushrooms about to go bad. I'm thinking maybe some sort of chicken in a mushroom cream sauce served over rice? I need to look for some recipes.

I've also got some super ripe bananas. Think I'm going to make some banana bread as well.

i took the kids out to cracker barrel.

sadly, they do not like thanksgiving foods & all I really had in mind was leftovers. (and no desire to cook after cooking for 3 days just for yesterday)

On thursday I made a winter suash soup instead of the beef broth - I was in need of something creamy - and we had some mini spring rolls with the soup. Of course the kids ate more spring rolls than soup but those miniture amounts of veggies do count as a serving, don't they

Yesterday I made teriyaki stir fried chicken with broccoli and zucchini and realized midway through stir frying that I forgot to add the garlic as well as the ginger to the teriyaki marinade It tasted great nevertheless and there were no leftovers! Ah, and we had rice on the side.

Tonight was sort of a mish-mash as we went to the first of many, many local Christmas Markets. The kids had bratwurst on a roll, DH ate a roll w/lettuce, fresh onion rings, wild salmon and dill sauce, I had the kids' leftover rolls and a clementine orange. Dessert were two crepes, one with Nutella the other one with apple sauce and cinnamon. At home both kids and DH compained that they were still hungry so they had beef broth with "fädle".
