I just posted in the October thread and then realized it was November! So, what's for dinner?

I think tonight is pork chops for us, not sure how I'm making them, though.

split pea soup with ham and carrots. I'm going to puree it in the pot. Seasoned brown rice. Mini strawberry muffins(had to find a use for some organic strawberries, I used part whole wheat flour, they taste pretty good).

Well... tonight was supposed to be Calzones but with my DH's schedule today I don't think I will be able to make it to the store. We'll see... but I don't think it's going to happen, so I'm going to try to come up with something else.

Tonight is leftovers but I'm looking forward to trying two new recipes -- pecan chicken tomorrow, then lentil soup the next day (with an old fave...no-knead bread).

Last night we had chicken and dumplings. Tonight we're having my favorite corn and potato chowder with honey wheat bread and apple cake for dessert. I can't wait; this is one of my favorite meals. I keep looking at the clock to see if it's time to start the soup yet!

Monterrey chicken is from Chili's. I found a copycat recipe and it turned out really good!

I fried flattened chicken breasts, topped them with bbq sauce, strips of bacon and a mix of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses then broiled until the cheese melted. Then topped that with chopped fresh tomatoes and chives.

Tonight is chicken pot pie.

Just did my meal plan for the week.

Today - roast a chicken to use in two of our meals this week.

Dinner today - Salmon cakes, mashed potatos & green beans
Tuesday - chicken noodle soup w/ salad & crusty bread
Wednesday - hashbrown casserole w/ salad
Thursday - Buffalo chicken sandwiches w/ blue cheese & onion rings & salad

Geeze, it looks like we are having a lot of salad this week, but I've got some great veggies so we will have a different type of salad each night.

tonight was supposed to be lamb stew with sweet potatoes and acorn squash - but my dh is off and he does not like lamb...

so it will be beef stew with potatoes and carrots.

We're having beef stew with carrots and roasted fingerling potatoes tonight. Plus salad. Boy, was DH irritated that I used up a bottle of his precious Newcastle for the stew but it is delicious (made it in the crockpot yesterday and will reheat tonight)!

Last night was baked delicata squash stuffed with diced tomato, diced apple, and fresh feta. We had wild rice on the side. :

Tonight will be salad with arugula, spinach, lettuce mix, carrots, tomato, onion, cilantro, bell peppers, feta, and whatever else we can find in the frig. The bonus is that these all came from within 50 miles of us :

Lst night was left over shepherds pie. Tonight will be left over chicken tortilla soup. I have to come up with a new game plan for tomorrow. I have to use whats in my fridge/freezer/pantry and no grocery shopping this week. Thankfully we have quite a bit of food in the house right now!

Tonight will be chicken-rice-broccoli casserole that I cobbled together from leftovers and pantry ingredients. That will probably do for tomorrow, too, since it will be just me and DD (DH goes out on Wed. nights).
