Not very hungry... Did a pineapple/kale smoothie with Greek yogurt for protein.. Leaving DH to fend for himself! Muahaha...

We bought ingredients for a steak/carrot/broccoli/snow pea curry for tomorrow though I've learned to whip up curry so quickly and easily, I love it! Also I've been craving spicy things most of the time lately...

We stopped at Chik-Fil-A on the way home tonight - anytime I can get Little Man to eat meat, I'm frankly happy.

KQ - I love it when you mention CFA. I was living in Chicago burbs when the first one opened up there. It was a big deal!

I had leftover homemade tzaziki sauce so I added some white vinegar to make it more like a dressing. Boiled that annoying 1/4 pound of rotini lurking in the pantry. Quartered up some lingering cherry tomatoes. Voila...pasta salad!

Still overrun with cherry tomatoes and cucumbers. But the heirlooms are taking forever to ripen. Sigh....

Leftover mostaccioli last night. I love when a meal lasts two days!! Then a simple blt dinner tonight, with cheesy rice and garlic green beans. What do you all make as side dishes with BLTs? I never know what to make with them. Going out if town for the weekend so hopefully we will eat at a good restaurant Saturday!

Oh man I could go for some Chik-fil-a for lunch today thanks for the idea @kitchensqueen ... Now I'm craving it!

Tonight is curry, I think I said that before.
I might steal your mostaccioli meal for tomorrow, @apeydef it sounds great!

Today we are having sushi at the sushi restaurant;-) love love love sushi;-)

Mmmm. BLT's sound good. Meals like that I usually serve raw veggies and dip on the side, and perhaps have a fruit and yogurt dessert or something. Cottage cheese is a common side dish around here, too.

I have to get on it if we want to eat sometime today, but clam chowder with a small salad and pumpernickel for dinner tonight.

It certainly hits a sweet spot from time to time!

Tonight I made half home made pizza, and mac and cheese with fruit Little Man.

Food Truck Friday in our neighborhood! Everyone in the family chose something different, but I had a very yummy veggie burger with spicy aoli, cheese, and tomato.

That is so awesome, and one of the things I miss about living in the city. We do not have a food truck (let alone an assortment of them!) in suburbia! [Insert jealousy here.]

Hmm, can you taste the cauliflower? Sounds good to me but both girls hate cauliflower(but like broccoli, go figure) think they'd notice?
kitchensqueen's Avatar kitchensqueen 06:08 PM 08-16-2014
I decided to make spaghetti with bottled marinara and Italian sausage.

Well my family love all kinds of vegetables so i do not have such problems;-) But if you add more cheese and maybe some smoked sausages/meat nobody will notice!! in addition baked cauliflower tastes completely different;-) Much tastier than boiled one;-) Any ways i think you should try!

Minestrone soup here tonight - I have a squash to use up, and I have the beginnings of a sore throat (the day before a business trip!).

DBF cooked up some salmon, roasted brussells sprouts and corn on the cob.

We made homemade pizza and had a salad. It was sure yummy.

I made a chicken Caesar salad. Went out of town for the weekend and had some good food, but we always feel like a good healthy salad when we get back.

I'm thinking tortellini with pesto sauce. It's just me since DH is at the station tonight and I tend to be lazy when cooking meals for just myself haha.

Yes, it is so fun! The HOA started it this summer, every other Friday. And we just got word that it will continue through the fall. Yay! Usually they organize two "real food" trucks and one "dessert" truck. Last week was sno-cones. It is so nice to walk to get dinner and everyone brings drinks and hangs out.

Last night was roasted new potatoes, grilled corn on the cob, and - of course - tomatoes from the garden.

I've been out of town, eating cafeteria food for a week - actually not bad, since they had a salad bar and served interesting side salads. We also found out our camp uses local meat and vegetables.

Plan for the week so far after a look at the pantry:

* Chickpea curry (using a packet of butter chicken sauce) with rice, plus cauliflower/broccoli we froze before we left on vacation
* Frozen spring rolls, rice, tom yum soup with edamame or tofu
* Pasta with canned salmon (garlic, parsley, lemon), plus lime coleslaw or salad

I also have red lentils and veggie broth cubes, so I might make a soup if it's rainy, and possibly a Thai curry with leftover vegetables and baby corn.

Trying to work on some freezer foods, starting this week. Todays' contribution: We're cooking up a slow-cooker smoked shoulder and I'll freeze the leftover meat and the bone for a future split pea soup. Serving with green beans and mashed potatoes.

Went grocery shopping to SAMs today. Got a rotisserie. I love getting these and making meals with them. Tonight I'm making chicken quesadillas using the rotisserie chicken. Tomorrow homemade potpie using the rotisserie. I also buy big packages of tortillas from SAMs and the kids like chicken wraps with chicken, cheese, veggies and ranch.
Then I'm also going to use the bones from the chicken and make broth. I've never do e this but got the idea to do it bc I'm always buying broth for recipes.
Do any of you buy rotisseries and make meals from them?

Oh, yeah, I'd say we buy a rotisserie every two weeks or so, and most of the time it gets used for 3 meals. First meal we usually just have chicken with sides, second meal is a meat-stretcher type meal using leftover meat in a dish like chow mein, cheesy chicken broccoli rice, some sort of cream sauce pasta, etc. Third use I'll generally simmer what's left of the chicken, pick off the remaining meat, and make a soup. I always make sure to save the weird liquid from the bottom of the container to go into the soup pot. I generally do the same thing with "real" chickens, but it's SO much easier to start with a rotisserie.

Yes I buy whole chickens and cook them myself a lot too but mostly in the winter. Idk why lol. Probably bc in the summer we generally grill chicken.
