wife&mommy We made "bloody worms" yesterday. You can see pics on the blog.
Tonight, I am not sure... I didn't make a meal plan this week because we had company and were going to be eating out a lot. I'm not sure what to do now... we have potatoes and some pork chops so I probably will do something with those.

Tonight I think we're getting takeout.

(But really.....even if the soup only has onions, potatoes, and corn for veggies? I feel like none of them count as a vegetable serving because they are either starchy, in the case of corn and potatoes, or one of those freebie veggies, in the case of the onions. Maybe I need to stop over-thinking things! )


just eat plenty of other fruits & veggies throughout the day...

Going to make chili tonight, then another night do chili dogs and onion rings.

MidnightCommando I had to share this new recipe we had for dinner tonight

Moroccan Roast Cornish Hens with vegetables

I served it over pine-nut couscous and OMG! We all fell off our chairs at the flavor. I have not tasted something so delicious and exciting in a while.

You MUST make this!!!

*Jessica* Tonight was Bacon, Caramelized Onion, Potato, and Corn Chowder. We were bad and didn't have a veggie or anything else with it.

Tomorrow is French Dip Sandwiches (made in the crockpot), garlicky home fries, roasted kale.

Wednesday is Pork Roast with Apples, Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes), and Brussels sprouts.

Thursday is chicken in a curry simmer sauce, rice, sweet potato fries and broccoli.

Friday we'll be a Halloween party where I think we're having pizza.

Saturday we'll be at a funeral.

Alyantavid Last night we had chorizos with grilled onions, carrots and pasta salad.

Tonight, I think, is tri tip, mashed potatoes and something else.
