We were gone all day yesterday so we packed a lunch but ate out for dinner.

Tonight we almost ate out again since it was 110 here today, nothing was sounding good, and I am completely out of dinner ideas. I managed to throw together a box of sesame ginger rice, a Quorn & broc stir fry, and a box of frozen spring rolls.

Tomorrow FIL is taking us out for DS2's birthday. YAY!

We did get takeout last night. It was my dad's birthday and he requested pizza from a local pizza place so we got that. But I did bake his cake (and the frosting) from scratch.

Tonight, I'm not sure. We normally go to my mom's but we're not this week so I'll have to see what I can put together.

Care to share your chicken-fried tofu recipe?? DH would be quite happy if I could make something like that!

This is the recipe I used last night, which was pretty good (7 out 10 stars). It's gluten-free, which is kind of hard to find. I think some kind of combination of this recipe with the previous one is going to be my next endeavor. The nooch is tasty, but a little overpowering; and I know that the cornstarch will give that nice crispy/crunchy coating that was missing. But the seasonings are good overall.

Tonight was chickpea patties with a little improvised white wine-lemon pan sauce, green beans, and mac and cheese (from a box but doctored a bit).

Ok, last night we went to my grandma's house for a bday dinner.

Tonight, leftovers or out. We're grocery shopping a few towns over so we won't be home early enough to cook.

Last night was portobello stroganoff. Tonight will be more leftover chickpea patties, this time with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes and...green beans from the freezer? Or maybe peas. Or broccoli. Some green thing from the freezer, anyway.

We finished up September by getting take out.

So how did everyone do? We had 2 dinners out and a few lunches. I went grocery shopping twice and spent right about $300.
