I've been pretty sick lately, so I haven't been the one doing the meals.

Tonight, C made fixings for taco salad/tacos/quesadillas/etc. Seasoned ground beef, pinto beans, diced avocado, salad (one of the higher-end bagged salad mixes with a bunch of veggies), diced tomato, shredded cheddar, plus flour tortillas or corn tortilla chips for those who wanted them.

When I was last in the kitchen, it looked like a cheesy chicken rice casserole was being made for dinner.

Tonight husband made chicken and roasted potatoes. But now I'm craving pulled pork!

Haven't been feeling well either. Yesterday I finally felt up to making something. I had a huge green salad with some strips of bacon. Turkey chili and blue cornbread muffins for the rest of the gang.
Tonight will be Honey Mustard Chicken with a salad and some kind of side, I haven't decided on that part yet...

My illness turned out to be a positive pregnancy test. I still can't even look at food.

Dinner was takeout pizza.

Congrats!

Last night's dinner out was great - we used a 2-for-1 deal and got steak with blue cheese, fries, and garlic spinach and salmon, horseradish mashed potatoes, and garlic spinach.

Yesterday, I also used a $10 off $30 coupon at a cool ethnic market and stocked up on vegetable pot stickers, shumai, spinach filo twists, and potato samosas to fill the freezer. Tonight I think will be Thai curry with vegetables and tofu over rice and some potstickers.

Congratulations!

We were going to go out but our destination is being sprayed for mosquitoes today so we're staying out of that county for at least a week.

Clams and pasta in marinara sauce with butter, herbs, and blood (from the raw liver I diced up yesterday).

Congratulations! We won't be offended if you avoid this thread for awhile. :-)

It's rainy and gloomy here so I opted for comfort food - a big pot of tuna noodle casserole, with scallions, sun dried tomatoes, and fresh parsley and thyme from our garden.

The family is eating take-out tacos from a local place. I've been living off of Triscuits (and not much else).

Still "enjoying" our elimination diet. Dinner was chicken in gravy with rice noodles stir-fried in chicken fat from making crispy chicken skins which I served like bacon bits on iceberg lettuce.

We're going into a weekend with a hundred degree heat wave and I'm sick with a summer cold, but nevertheless I will be braving the kitchen tonight to make a big batch of pasta bolognese. I'd like to do some freezer portions for quick dinners.

Baked potatoes with a creamy sauce I made by blending up leftover chicken, leftover chicken-rice soup and potato starch (tastes better than it sounds), iceberg lettuce, and optional rice/rice noodles, chicken drumsticks.

I got some small fresh summer squash at the farmer's market yesterday - a yellow crookneck, zuchinni and two patty pans. I'm thinking about making minestrone with it. There are also a few beans ready in the garden, but not enough for a full dish, so I thought I would pick those and toss them into the soup. It'll need more beans though, so if I'm going to make it, I'll need to get the dried white beans soaking soon.

Dinner was nothing special - broccoli salad with a lemon yogurt dressing. But for dessert, I made pretty pink macarons. I had lots of egg whites left over from making ice cream so I decided to use them up in something special.

This weekend we camped and had potatoes in foil packets along with hot dogs and smores. The next day we contributed dinner - skirt steak tacos with guac, salsa, and other toppings.

Tonight I made pasta with tomato sauce (canned tomatoes doctored up with garlic, olives, and pesto).

Tomorrow night, I'm going out to Vietnamese to celebrate a friend's birthday.
