I'm making a meatloaf with organic hamburger ($$$$$) and organic mashed potatoes. A side of frozen veg or salad.

Please post your dinner plans for tonight so we can all get ideas!

Monday night in the winter is soup or stew in the crockpot.

Tonight is beef stew and biscuits. Canned fruit for dessert. Not great, I know, but I'm getting better progressively.

Spaghetti. This is my easy dinner when I don't have much time and haven't planned.

More specifically, whole wheat organic spaghetti (from my food coop)
Home made (mostly) tomato sauce (can of tomato sauce, ground organic buffalo, chopped peppers, onions and spices).

Leftover bread I made in the bread machine yesterday.

cut chicken horizontally in half but not all the way through, put some filling in each breast
take crusts off bread and pulse in food processor until in fine crumbs with course pieces.
combine bread crumbs with remaining almonds, melt butter and drizzle over crumbs.toss with a fork.
in a seperate dish beat an egg, salt and pepper.

Yesterday we had whole wheat spaghetti with TVP (browned with onion) and Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic pasta sauce, home-canned green beans, and homemade apple sauce.

Tonight we are having homemade black bean soup with tortilla chips, cooked carrots, and apples.

Namaste!

Tonight we're having a roasted chicken (free-range/all-natural from our local farm) and homemade stuffing if I can can figure out how to do it. I've been saving the leftovers from our homemade bread, chopping it into squares and putting it in the freezer. Recipe anyone? I was planning on just sauteeing some celery and onion, adding a tiny bit of chicken broth and mixing the bread in (before stuffing the bird).

I made black bean soup from scratch for lunch (with soaked dry beans and a container of leftover fresh salsa from the grocery store). MMM!

Rebecca - that is how I make it. Saute onion and celery in butter, add bread, chicken broth, poultry seasoning, s&p.

I never ever stuff the bird though. You can get salmonella from that.

Homemade pizza is the plan. I'll probably cut some sort of fruit to go with.

Leftovers tonight.....meatloaf, mashed potatoes, froz. veggies. All organic!

I made the meatloaf in muffin tins and stuffed the middle with cheese. It came out really tasty! I want to make more of these and freeze them as lunches/dinners for DS when we are having something he won't eat or can't eat...
