We don't eat out much. And since we moved 3 weeks ago, it'll be even less since there aren't very many take out places near our new home. I'm good for ordering in on Fridays when I'm tired from having worked all week. Not being able to as readily will help eliminate that!

1. Baked chicken (I remembered!) marinated in Mojo; arroz con gandules and maduros
2. Beef noodle casserole, french bread, cucumber and tomato salad
3. Left overs from the 2nd
4. Left overs from the 1st with broccoli instead of maduros
5. Planning on orange chicken if I can get to the market today.
5. Ended up with oven baked catfish and corn on the cob.

1 - Frozen pizza
2 - Spinach soup with hard boiled eggs and no-knead bread
3 - Soup made with oxtail broth leftover from last night and oxtail meat, mung beans, carrots, onions and spinach. And bread.
4 - Rutabaga, potatoes, carrots, and kale stewed in yellow Thai curry coconut sauce, brown rice
5 - Roasted chicken with brussels sprouts, potatoes, parsnip roasted underneath, cream sauce from drippings
6 - Chicken pot pie, in the oven now. Not sure how it is going to turn out, somehow I couldn't get the sauce as thick as it was last time... Chicken carcass is simmering on the stove, not sure if I'll use the stock tomorrow or save it for later.

I'm in agian. We did really well last month. One nice meal out and another night were three of the four of us ate out and a random solo trip through the drive through (when I worked 13 hours and handn't eaten dinner at 8 p.m.) The goal is one nice dinner out and one or two random meal out.

1--Homemade ravoli for the midday meal and hot dogs and brussel sprouts for supper (yeah it was a bit odd)
2--leftovers
3--homemade potstickers
4--DH made his India Shepard's pie again (squash, ground lamb, taters, green beans, onion and curry seasoning.
5--the plan is tacos. We ended up with homemade pizza

1- s uper delish salad, boys cooked brats out on the grill for football game
2- ravioli, brussels sprouts
3- quesadilla w/ gr turkey & green pep (after a large late lunch: bread bowl at Corner Bakery- to be fair, we had to be out & about for ten hours total and I only caved after waiting over an hour past the time my ex said he would meet us downtown... a woman actually asked me if I was okay and needed her to buy me lunch because I was sitting there for an hour not ordering anything- so embarrassing! but sweet of her.)
4- tilapia w. broccoli & roasted sweet potatoes
5- potato pancakes (FINALLY- this has been in the works for a while) served on a bed of peas, with apple sauce & sour cream.
6- homemade pizza
7- beef stroganoff
8- chicken enchiladas
9- leftovers didn't make it past lunch- we made a salad with green leaf lettuce, iceberg, chicken (marinated in soy sauce, garlic, ginger, & onion- sauteed- chilled), zucchini, red pepper, walnuts, goat cheese, dried cranberries, crumbled bacon, balsamic vinaigrette, and homemade croutons. (budgeting note: we keep the walnuts and dried cranberries around pretty much just for salads, though they can also be snacks, they are expensive. So I wouldn't buy them just to make a salad, they're something we buy when we can and then we use it in many salads!)

and then in queue:
fennel & potato crockpot soup
spaghetti squash with a super special red wine tomato sauce with bacon and ground turkey and shallots and lots of deliciousness!!
barley & split yellow pea soup with rutabaga
tilapia w. peas and roasted potatoes
tuna casserole with broccoli

I have no idea what order these meals will be in, haven't gotten the fennel yet but I did get the celery for both soupd so I should make them both during this week. Actually the order they are in is probably my best guess!

Everything vegan unless stated I'm also going to keep track of "extra" cooking I do,to overlap into other meals...it'll help me make sure I use up everything

1-FFY-Dh had a gig over dinner, ds wanted potatoes w hemp seeds on them...so it was a lot of snacking happening
2-Vegan Dad's chickpea patties/"cheesy" scalloped potatoes/roasted butternut squash/romaine lettuce salad w roasted apples/sundried tomatoes/butternut squash roasted seeds YUMMY DINNER
EXTRA COOKING- extra chickpeas&squash/broth out of apple cores/squash peel/onions to use to cook rice later this week
3-Pasta with eggplant, onion, garlic, chilis tomato sauce w hemp seeds on top...Ds's request
4-Acorn squash stuffed w wild rice(cooked in the butternut squash broth), leftover chickpeas, leftover roasted apples, onions, peas and corn.
EXTRA COOKING-made pumpkin puree out of the pumpkin that never got carved. Made 1 loaf of pumpkin bread and am planning to freeze the rest of the puree to make pumpkin bread for xmas presents. And black beans cooked to make ds refried beans for lunches
5-Eggplant, broc, bok choy,swiss chard stir fried w leftover chickpeas and a vegetarian oyster sauce on brown rice. Ds finally tried brocoli ate the whole pan full then asked for more
