I only post dinners, and I'll noted if a meal is veggie only.

2 - Roasted Chicken, root veggies (squash, rutabaga, & green apple) with simple risotto
3 - Pot Roast with veggies (carrots, brussel sprouts, potato, green bean) & mashed potatoes
4 - Leftovers
5 - Speghetti w/ meatballs & spinach salad
6 - Leftovers or Meatloaf with mashed potatoes & veggies

1/3: SIL brings over steak and scalloped potatoes for dh's going-away party, I make bread and veggies
1/4: Kids ate mac n cheese and grapes. MIL brought me over a twice-baked potato, but I am not hungry because we ate Mickey-D's after the preschool pickup at 3 p.m. Weak. I am weak.
1/5: I ate the leftover steak and baked potato, kids ate chicken tenders and fries.

I made a great soup last night, with odds and ends that were in my pantry and fridge.

Gypsy Soup--Moosewood Cookbook

1 chopped sweet potato
1 chopped onion
1 chopped red pepper
1 chopped carrot
4 minced garlic cloves
1 can chick peas
1 cup diced tomoto (I used canned tomato and drained the juice)
3 cups veg stock or water
2 tbspns curry powder
dash cayenne
dash cinnamon
dash soy sauce

It was delicious, and totally worked with the chick pea/sweet potato I had to cook with.

1- homemade pizza, 1 pepperoni and 1 onion, red pepper, black olive. made a white bean soup but any way I puree, it still has tiny chunks maybe freezing will help.
2- homemade biscuits and gravy with pot roast leftovers. made "healthy no-bake cookies"
3- chicken & pasta casserole (I had enough for two last week), yummy salad. whole wheat banana bread with flax & ground oatmeal.
4- we had an odd schedule today and it was sort of FFY. There was a delicious linguine marinara for a late lunch. I have conceded that a pasta sauce from a jar is acceptable, especially when our only way of making "homemade" marinara is to use canned tomato products (we rarely eat any other canned foods, and tomatoes are more acidic thus posing a greater threat if stored in bpa-lined cans, so why would I leave those in our diet?)
5- well first of all, I made my first whole chicken! I did it in the crock, so it really felt like cheating... Rubbed it with salt, pep & paprika, and set it up in the slow cooker with lemon, garlic and rosemary... kind of like here, but with paprika. Just tore it apart afterwards: breasts remained intact and everything else in shreds. Decided I could get more out of the bones, & the stock is still simmering. - I saved the white bean soup! I had to nuke it though.... I had already simmered it for a couple hours but I guess something about being refrigerated and then reheated (or perhaps the fact that I was using the magic bullet instead of the ancient food processor?) enabled creaminess. Yummy as lunch, and as a midnight snack :P - Made medium grain brown rice & added frozen peas toward the end. It turned out fabulous! With some chicken, this was dinner.

6-D was with her dad at dinnertime and no one else was home/up so I just pigged out on ice cream and used the sugar rush to clean. Yep. Finally got some company later in the evening- we'll call it a late snack: homemade pizza with roasted eggplant & goat cheese.. a little bit of leftover dough got made into a solitary cinnamon roll sort of thing, for which I even made icing. Yes, I am addicted to sugar. >sigh<

tacos with leftover chicken enchildas
lentils w/ spinach (thank you LizzyQ!)
pot roast with parsnips
make-ahead mashed potatoes

for these things, I only have 3 or four ingredients I need so far... lookin good!

I tried this last month, but didn't manage to stick with it too well. All meals are vegetarian.

1. Bean, rice & veggie meat burritos & gorditas
2. Black bean & corn chopped salads
3. Pizza, ice cream & cake to celebrate DS1's birthday.
4. Vegan sausages & gnocchi with broccoli in garlic & oil
5. Grilled chik'n patties, sauteed mushrooms & onions, and roasted sweet & white potatoes.
6. Pineapple & tofu fried rice and tofu massaman curry (yes this was actually take-out, but since I am doing this from a $ saving perspective & I didn't pay for it, I am not counting it )
7.

2- Chicken Parmesan w/ Mixed green salad and balsamic vinaigrette
3- Leftover chicken parm...
4- Chili and cornbread
5- Leftover Chili
6- Greek "pitzah" (pita flatbread with hummus, mozarella, tomato, olive, onion, feta, spinach, and parsley...yum!)
7- Beef stroganoff over whole wheat egg noodles and veggies

We're having our first meal of the week tonight with meat. One of my resolutions is to include many more meatless meals. DH is not excited.

We have budgeted to eat out once a week. Weekends KILL us and we usually end up eating out for 2 or 3 meals. I'm nervous for tomorrow to roll around!

This is pretty much the same recipe, the only difference the one in my book calls for onions instead of scallions: http://willowpf.com/index.php?option...d=31&Itemid=49
