Hahaha I know right?

We're maybe doing marginally better here tonight with bacon-wrapped cod, mashed potatoes and peas...

I made a plan for the next three days:
* Pasta with jar sauce and shrimp, broccoli
* Soft tacos with black beans, avocado, salsa, etc.
* Japanese rice bowls with tofu, cucumber, avocado

It's almost a hundred degrees here so I'm throwing together a quick chicken broccoli stir fry.

KQ - 100 degrees??? I only lived in Chicago for about 16 months but the fluctuation in temperature is truly amazing. I live in Atlanta now and it's way cooler here!

Yeah, it's about 97 degrees at 9 PM! Weather is just crazy here, but I'll take the heat over the cold any day!

Last night we cheated and went to Chik-Fil-A. Nice surprise was that it was kid's night, so Little Man's meal was free when we purchased ours, plus ice cream for his dessert.

Tonight it's cooler but I need to do a bit of office work, so we're doing beef tacos from the seasoned ground meat we put in the freezer stash.

I also need to put a dry rub on a pork shoulder that's defrosted and then sear it, so it can go in the crock pot for pulled pork for tomorrow's dinner. I've got Ned Beattys and Bloody Marys on my mind...

Leftover pulled pork with cornbread here. If I get super ambitious, I'll do roasted potatoes and a poached egg with it, for a Ned Beatty.

We're getting the kids cooking this summer, so they helped come up with the menu. DH is also cooking. Here's the plan for the week:

* Pizza bread & salad
* Spaghetti tacos
* Pasta with red sauce & salad
* Rice bowls with edamame, vegetables & veggie egg rolls, Vietnamese sauce/peanut sauce
* Rice & seitan with broccoli & mushrooms

hi, haven't been on this thread for a while, but tonight, we had pasta with beet green, parmesan, olive oil, and garlic toast on the side.
newmamalizzy's Avatar newmamalizzy 06:02 PM 06-23-2014
Okay, I have to figure out what we're eating this week, so...

Tonight was rotisserie chicken with green beans and red potato salad.
Tuesday: Salad using tonight's leftovers
Wednesday: Tofu and broccoli stir-fry with rice
Thursday: Something involving Italian sausage and red cabbage
Friday: Homemade pizza and salad

I'm making perloo here tonight. It's chilly and rainy, so I want filling comfort food.

We're having dinosaur chicken nuggets with ketchup with steamed broccoli and rice cooked in chicken stock.

We had Talipia with Jasmine rice and French Green Beans..I made Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet in the ice cream machine too

Husband cooked tonight - green salad and half home made pizza. Friday night food...
newmamalizzy's Avatar newmamalizzy 08:25 PM 06-27-2014
We were supposed to have homemade pizza and salad, too. But after a hot walk I wussed out on turning the oven on and we ended up with takeout pizza instead. Wasn't as good as mine, though

Waldorf Salad
bereamama's Avatar bereamama 09:30 PM 06-27-2014
Chicken picadillo served over brown rice. I did not grind the chicken like the recipe says, but cut the breasts into chunks. Do NOT leave out the raisins, they really make the dish! http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/chic...0000001206204/
kitchensqueen's Avatar kitchensqueen 04:18 PM 06-28-2014
No idea what do for dinner tonight... husband is working and Little Man will probably demand (and receive) mac and cheese... It's so hot I just don't feel like cooking at all. I'll probably end up eating a bag of edamame or something.
bereamama's Avatar bereamama 04:50 PM 06-28-2014
I am making baked butter herb perch (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-B...ts/Detail.aspx), mashed potato pancakes (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/my-cris...otato-pancake/) with applesauce and sour cream, and spinach (cooked).

That sounds delicious! Do you have a recipe?
spiderdust's Avatar spiderdust 09:43 PM 06-28-2014
I fell asleep after a long afternoon at the farmer's market, library, play structure, etc... so the oldest boychild made dinner. Mac & cheese, hot dogs, fresh veggie sticks with ranch for dipping. Not the healthiest meal ever, but not horrible.

steamed broccoli with olive oil and rosemary

I don't know, the fact that he thought to include fresh veggie sticks is fairly impressive. :-)

I made a big batch of pasta salad for lunch/dinner eating. Husband is working tonight, so it'll be more of a graze. It's so humid we caved in and turned on the AC, so I don't feel like doing serious cooking and heating up the house again.

This is true! We just seem to fall on "mac & cheese with hot dogs" as a dinner choice more often than I'd like.

Pasta salad might work today... all the picky eaters are home, so it might also flop, but I am hot and tired enough that easy dinner is really appealing.

Yeah, same here... mac and cheese is apparently one of Little Man's preferred "food groups"...
