This week so far I've made

* Linguine with a sauce made of sauteed grape tomatoes (the orange ones) and shallots
* Tacos with black beans, ground beef and toppings

Tonight leftovers and tomorrow something with potatoes - maybe crockpot baked potatoes or DD2 requested scalloped potatoes.

This has to be on the menu sometime soon - Spanish chickpeas and rice:

Last night was quinoa, kale, garlic, onion, radishes and chicken. We baked a loaf of buckwheat bread and had it with tins of butter.
Right now I have a pork loin salt curing that I plan on popping in the oven tonight, then dicing and sautéing with a ton of collards, paprika, okra and onion. We're low on flower flour so we might not have a loaf tonight.

Last night was leftover pork roast with a failed Apple Dijon gravy, green beans simmered with country ham, and bread and butter. Tonight.....good question. Gotta get on that.

That sounds good, and I've been trying to think of new ways to add chickpeas into meals.

Our meal plan for the last few days got derailed a bit, as I was a dolt and defrosted the wrong thing the other day. So Wednesday night we had a shepherd's pie, but did a non-traditional Norwegian meatball-style filling with dill and spices. Last night husband cooked and made spicy pan-fried chicken breasts with fries.

Tonight I'm feeling far too lazy for cioppino, so I'm making GF pasta with marinara and Italian sausage. Lazy people food. And I may bake a GF chocolate cake too, because dang it, I'm worth it.

I'm all about the lazy people food lately. So tired and *still* recovering from the foot surgery, which is taking bleeping forever. As long as it's got a vegetable in it, I'm calling it good. Frozen pizza has been a weekly staple around here - something I never thought I would rely on.

But DD1 made flan yesterday YUM

And in that vein -

Yesterday was the crockpot baked potatoes with jalapeno pinto beans, cheese sauce & broccoli. Tonight brown rice from the rice cooker with BBQ tofu & some simple veg stir-fry. Tomorrow probably out to dinner.

We ended up with a pasta concoction tonight. Sauce was roasted cherry tomatoes blended up, with roasted veggies, feta cheese and a bit of diced country ham.

Husband is a tournament overnight, so it's just Little Man and I here for dinner. I'm having leftover GF pasta with marinara and sausage, and LM is eating fish sticks, strawberry soy yogurt and mandarin oranges.

I think I'm going to make a coq au vin, though with white wine instead of red since that's what I have on hand. Need to figure out some meals for this week too - finally got a new crockpot!

Husband made a potato, sausage and sweet pepper skillet meal tonight. Tomorrow we're doing smothered pork chops in the new crockpot, over rice.

My parents outstayed my cooking time so I had to scramble for dinner. Ended up with freezer soup and bread. I guess we'll do lentils with country ham and leeks tomorrow night.

Busy day of catching up on chores today.
After getting Bean off to school...
- did the usual morning kitchen, bathroom, living room and laundry tasks
- scrubbed the toilet
- made leftover oatmeal muffins
- put away suitcases in attic
- thoroughly vacuumed and mopped floors

Okay, it seemed like more than that in between there was a fake nap and a real nap for Bug, a shower for me, prepping lunch for the girls, going through Bea's school stuff when she got home, proctoring and cleaning up the gigantic mess of lunch, and then in the afternoon my parents visited.

Now I'm supposed to be working on my giant to do list but I'm actually planning to eat noodle soup while watching the Gilmore girls. And making a meal plan. I guess.

Ha! Well you did mention food in there, so it counts. :-)

For dinner tonight, I'm thinking turkey soup from the freezer stash. I'm in a soup mood I think.

Changed my mind - made bean, bacon and kale soup instead. Love that stuff.

Clean out the fridge night here - we have leftover soup, pork with rice, steamed veggies, and god knows what else lurking in there.

Husband is working, so I'll probably have spicy honey mustard salmon and a baked potato. LM will either have fish sticks or chicken, mashed potato and some kind of fruit.

Had a kid-pleasing dinner tonight: rotini pasta with red sauce and meatballs, green salad, and garlic bread. I had my sauce and meatballs on top of spaghetti squash.

We'll either do turkey soup from the freezer stash, or I'll cheat and pick up a rotisserie chicken - I do have some carrots and onions that I need to use up, and the prospect of throwing them in the crockpot with the chicken carcass for easy stock is pretty appealing.
