Okay, here's what I have around:

Chicken (boneless/skinless). Frozen, might not thaw all the way by suppertime.
Fresh red beets
Whole wheat pasta (spaghetti or rigatoni) or tricolor pasta
Brown rice
Cheddar cheese

I have 2 zucchini and some sliced baby bellas too, but I sort of have them earmarked for another night. Not completely out of the question, though.

Also have basics: butter, parmesan, flours, spices, rice milk, a bit of sour cream, eggs, breadcrumbs, etc. Probably don't have any decent oil but I can fake it with butter or milk.

Thoughts? I'm so bored of the same old junk.

I'd make chicken pasta salad. I made it the other night and it was goood. Cook your chicken and shred it. Boil your pasta. Have peas? Boil them too.

Mayo, pasta, shredded chicken, onion. You can throw in anything else you like

Run the pasta and anything you boil under cold water to speed up the chilling process.

I love drizzling olive oil over the chicken and then season it with oregano, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Grill them, bake them, sautee them, stir fry them. Sautee fresh summer veggies (squash, zuchinni, tomatoes with olive oil and garlic) if you have them. Season to taste. Serve with pasta.
