I didn't see a recent active thread about dinner, and since I love to cook to and eat I thought I'd start one.


Last night we had ham and scalloped potatoes (using leftover Easter ham) and tonight we had bamee noodles with barbecued pork.


Tomorrow night, I'm thinking about doing a bacon and whiskey chili since it's so rainy and cool, but I'm not sure yet. Who knows what I'll want tomorrow?


What's everyone else doing for dinner?

Last night we had finger steaks and fries.  Tonight is soup (I'm thinking veggie) and sandwiches.

Last night we had Swedish meatballs, boiled red potatoes, green beans and corn. I think tonight will be spaghetti and garlic bread.

mommariffic 04-27-2011 05:19 PM

We had a late lunch so our dinner was light - honey sandwiches, baby carrots and broccoli (cold) and yogurt 

kitchensqueen 04-27-2011 05:22 PM

We decided to do bacon and whiskey chili, but it will be a modified version since we don't have bacon or pinto beans...

Tonight we're having this soup: roasted sweet potato apple soup with some blue cheese and crusty bread. Simple, veggie-ful, and the kids can drink it with a straw. We'll probably put some plain yogurt in each bowl for extra protein.

Even though it's chilly and looks like rain, we're going to fire up the grill for steaks. We're going to marinate them in some red wine and worcestershire sauce, then I'm going to cook down the marinade with some carmelized shallots to make a sauce. Some canned green beans and croissant rolls on the side.

vidalia onion frittata with fresh local asparagus- homemade wheat rolls- cold and rainy out but want to eat this up before it goes bad.

Wolfcat 06-11-2011 09:30 PM

I had a bacon cheeseburger from Perkins... :( I hate being on the road... and my tummy hates it too.


The last meal we had at home was homemade runzas: ground beef, cabbage & mozzarella wrapped in pita dough and baked... YUMMY!

Honey693 06-14-2011 09:29 PM

steak and corn.


tomorrow is hamburgers with homemade buns and whatever veggies I can scrounge up.

Tonight we're having breakfast burritos -- scrambled eggs, potatoes (cooked hash brown style), turkey sausage, & cheese on whole wheat tortillas -- and watermelon.

cooking for just me lately- my husband associates 'big games' (Stanley Cup) with take out, burgers, etc- weirdo.  i eat a normal dinner when the final episode of the Bachelor is on:)


So, having salads with corn and bbq seitan and homemade rolls past few pms.  One of my favorite standbys- tonight added asparagus from farmers mkt- yummy- one week left of asparagus here and im getting my fill!!!!

Wolfcat 06-18-2011 02:15 PM

Last night, we had a very "processed" meal: sloppy joes on whole grain bread and fresh grapes.


Tonight: Speghetti

nald1 06-19-2011 11:09 AM

Father's Day- dad's pick - PIZZA- take out - salads and toppings and Done- love it!!

amnesiac 06-19-2011 02:45 PM

I had planned to make chicken tortilla soup but hubby wants burgers. Since it's Father's Day, I'll do the soup tomorrow & tonight we'll have burgers with corn on the cob. I was going to also grill some veggies but I'm kinda tired this afternoon so I may skip that.

Wolfcat 06-20-2011 05:40 PM

Homemade veggie pockets (think veggie hot pockets)

chaoticzenmom 06-20-2011 07:41 PM

bbq tofu, quinoa and roasted vegetables (sprinkled with smoked paprika..yum!)

nald1 06-21-2011 12:24 PM

kayleesmom 06-21-2011 07:29 PM

Wolfcat 06-26-2011 06:28 PM

Russian Chicken and Green Beans

skreader 06-26-2011 07:45 PM

Meatballs from the freezer, pasta, greens.

mommy212 06-27-2011 02:06 PM

Tonight's dinner is tuscan style beans and green (cannelini beans, kale, tomatoes, etc) and homemade 50/50 wheat/white bread.

nald1 08-15-2011 05:06 PM

so excited about all the great food i prepared for tonight- and most of the week (I hope!!) - all local produce makes it even more exciting :)


roasted beets with spring onions on local greens with cukes, cherry tomatoes, and corn- only non-local additions were avocados, olives, veg chicken with Nutr yeast- YUMMERS

Justmee 08-16-2011 12:07 AM

Meatballs and rice for tonight. Maybe green beans or just raw veggies.

kitchensqueen 09-08-2011 06:30 PM

Hey, this thread dropped off. :-( 


Tonight we're having apple smoked chicken (in our Cameron stove top smoker) and mashed potatoes. 


What's everyone else having?

Chicky2 09-09-2011 09:31 AM

I'll bite.  2 nights ago we had smoked chicken and scratch baked beans w/lots of onions and bell peppers in it, plus grape salad.


last night we had cornbread, pinto beans made w/bone stock and a smoked pig carcass (we frequently have very small pigs cut in half to use up), rice for the one who doesn't like cornbread, cherries, sauteed cabbage, grilled spaghetti squash, and roasted sweet potatoes.  All cooked outside.


Tonight will be tacos w/leftover smoked chicken.  When I make tacos I make one thing, and that's it.  I get out my chafing pan and fill it up w/already-stuffed tacos (I make around 30 on a normal night for us), and I include lots of veggies in the meat filling.  We usually take the tray outside and eat on the trampoline or by the pool if the weather is right.


Tomorrow night is clean-out-the-fridge night as we are off on a mini vacation the next day!

kitchensqueen 09-09-2011 11:02 AM

That pork and cornbread meal sure sounds good! 

MommyofNRM 09-10-2011 07:49 PM

I love this thread! It gives me such great ideas for my own meal planning. 


Tonight, we had good old spaghetti and meatballs. I use my grandmother's meatball recipe and they're the only meatballs I will ever eat! Salad and garlic bread on the side.


Last night I made a delicious marinaded pork tenderloin with roasted veggies (potatoes and carrots). Much to my surprise, my 19month old son LOVED the pork and the carrots! Score! 


Keep this thread going ladies!!

Awesome that he loves the pork and veggies. That's a cooking/eating score for sure. :-)


Tonight we made spaghetti with marinara sauce and Italian sausage, and the sausage was extra good because husband grilled it. Nothing better than grilled sausage in my book! And we used fresh herbs from our container garden to flavor the sauce as well. 


I have no idea what I'm going to make tomorrow night - I've been thinking a lot about scalloped potatoes and ham lately, or cioppino with sourdough... 


kitchensqueen 09-11-2011 09:35 AM

I was finally able to get a pork roast today, so it's going into the crockpot shortly for pulled pork. And I'm going to get a batch of home made barbecue sauce simmering on the stove to go with it. We also picked up four ears of sweet corn at the farmers market, so we're looking at some good eating for dinner tonight. :-)
