Awe hang in there. I'm 38 weeks this week. Now heartburn has replaced morning sickness.

Leftover spaghetti and chili tonight.

Last night husband grilled turkey burgers and baked potatoes, which we had with green beans. Tonight we had pan fried chicken with a rice/veggie mix.

cheeseburgers, fries, and peaches.

Littlest finished the end of one of his workbooks today, and got a 'diploma' lol. He asked if we could have cheeseburgers to celebrate. Luckily, I had already planned on cheeseburgers tonight!

That sounds really good - makes me what eat some salmon. But we have some leftovers in the fridge I ought to eat up, so it'll probably be those - Andouille sausage, sweet pepper and potato skillet. Husband took the day off work and is down in the city gaming with friends, so he'll most certainly be eating junk food. And Little Man has requested parmesan spaghetti.

December is crazy this year. And this week there is something going on Mon-Wed evenings, so I will have to have stuff ready in the kitchen for people to eat when they can. So, I'm planning on black bean tacos, baked potatoes, and something else easy (fish sticks I have in the freezer) those nights. Post-Wed dinners to be determined!

Husband is working a day shift today, so will be home at a halfway reasonable hour for dinner. So I'm making pasta bolognese.

Scrounging until our pea pod order comes tomorrow. I have a box of baby spinach to use, some green beans to salvage before they go bad, and a random array of pantry/freezer foods. I'm thinking a spinach pasta with beans on the side.

Doing what I can to make better choices every day!

Congrats!

We had a delicious lamb stew last night. Not enough for leftover shepards pie, unfortunately, so I have to come up with something for tonight.

We made crockpot beef roast with potatoes and onions, with the last lonely pumpkin ale in the fridge.

Yum! That sounds really, really good. I've never added beer to my stew before, let alone pumpkin ale. I will have to try that next time!

Tonight was lentil tacos, pico de gallo, and tortilla chips.

Last night was Mexican casserole, which I make in the crock pot when there are scraps and bits of leftover tortillas, vegetables, salsas, etc. I layered the following in my crock & cooked until hot/cooked through: corn tortillas (these dissolve and thicken the casserole), pinto beans, frozen veg, sliced onion, sliced zucchini, leftover salsa mixed with veg broth. Served with sour cream and sliced avocado. It was good, but maybe needed a can of diced tomatoes, too.

Tonight I am trying a new recipe, seitan wings:
http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recip...-seitan-wings/
Will serve those with sesame or peanut noodles and a salad with lime or lemon vinaigrette. Mac&cheese for the non-spicy eater.

Tomorrow is dinner out - whew!

It is pretty tasty - and it doesn't have to be a pumpkin ale. I also think nut brown ale and oatmeal stout are pretty good. I've tried Guinness and that comes out to heavy and bitter for me.

Speaking of - we're having the last of it for dinner tonight.

I have absolutely no idea what to make for dinner... husband is working, LM will probably request some form of noodles or oatmeal and I don't have a taste for anything. Meh.

cheesy brocoli casserole (I made a double batch this time, since the kids absolutely love it and typically gobble it up in no time), and salad.

Thinking of Mothering standby Honey Baked Lentils for dinner tonight. Probably with rice and whatever scraps of vegetables are left. Need to clean out fridge and plan carefully for the week before vacation.
