Happy b-day to your DS!

Tonight I am wimping out and ordering pad thai - daughters' choice. It's been pretty busy around here & DH and I both have stuff to go to tonight.

Otherwise, I have two bags of potatoes to use up, and I forgot to roast the cauliflower the other day, so for the rest of this week I am thinking:
* Potato-bean soup or roasted potato wedges and seitan chorizo or, if I get really ambitious, homemade gnocci (anyone made those before?)
* Roasted cauliflower and ??? maybe chili. I have a pretty large tupperware of leftover pinto beans I could make into chili.

Mom "D" to DD1 "Z" (15) and DD2 "I" (11) DH "M"

Thank you!!

You could always freeze the beans too. I make a big batch and then freeze them in quart size bags.

Taco salad. I used Doritos this time too. I usually don't bc they are so bad for you, but they sounded so good this time.

Dd has been throwing up every hour for the last 9 hours!! She's not dehydrated so I'm not sure there is much that can be done. Anyhow I don't know what to do for dinner bc I'm so exhausted. I've been letting my youngest eat crackers and watch tv all day bc I'm trying to keep up on laundry and cleaning up after dd. It's just one of those great days being a mommy

Ohhhhh. So sorry! It would be very hard to make a meal after dealing with puke all day.

We had tortellini with pesto and a spinach salad. First meal I've made for a loooong time.

Thanks! Yea I didn't feel much hungry lol.

I ended up baking some alexia waffle fries for DS. He ate those and applesauce. He snacked on fruit all day so I didn't feel too bad about not having a complete dinner
Made DH taco salad again. Laundry is done and house is sanitized, so praying nobody else gets it and we can get back on track tomorrow!

Arugula salad with roasted butternut squash, honeycrisp apples, pecans, and dried cranberries with maple mustard vinaigrette. Yum!

Special dessert as report cards came today: grilled baguette with brie, pumpkin butter, and semisweet chocolate chips. Oh. My. Goodness.

I don't usually cook meat, but sometimes I do when DSD is here. Crockpot pork with apricot jam, red onion, and home grown jalapeños. Served as tacos with avacado and pickled jalapeños along with corn salad (black beans, red onion, lime juice, red pepper).

pork with mushroom sauce on crepes. I don't think I much care for pork... It's not something I usually make, and I could barely eat it. In fact, the whole family seemed put off by it. Think I'll stick with beef and chicken!

Both of those meals sound good, so I may copy them! Are you doing the crockpot potatoes as baked, or another way?

I'm going to make the crockpot baked potatoes and then put out toppings: steamed broccoli, cheese, sour cream, hot sauce. Sometimes I do Mexican style toppings: black beans, salsa, etc.

The noodles I have are these thin noodles sold in packages of "nests" - so good! I just stir-fry any veggies I have handy and either bake or fry the tofu. Our favorite sauces are peanut, Vietnamese or a Chinese dipping sauce I learned to make in college (soy sauce + rice vinegar + sesame oil + sriracha + optional chopped garlic). Making that tonight, I just decided!
