Ragana Quick black bean tacos for dinner with half-homemade salsa (canned diced tomatoes, jalapeno, red onion), storebought guacamole, sour cream, cheese.

Tomorrow homemade sushi if I have enough energy!

KatelynRose I need to go to the store but I'm planning on making Salisbury Steak with mashed potatoes and broccoli..

Trying to make the cheapest meals I can that are still as healthy as possible because we are on a tight budget right now. I just spent about half an hour carefully planning out meals that overlap ingredients so that my grocery list is less expensive. I'm actually pretty darn proud of myself for what I came up with. 14 meals planned for less than $90.. And I'm usually over on my money guesstimations but we will see how I do at the store this afternoon. Whew!

apeydef Homemade chicken fried rice.
@KatelynRose this is very easy. Begin cooking some rice. 1 cup uncooked (which makes three cups)
Sauté onions add in diced chicken add cook. Then I add in two eggs and cook until scrambled. Add in frozen peas and carrots. Soy sauce. Cook a little until veggies are thawed. Add in rice and more soy sauce.

pumabearclan I cheat: We just buy the rice or noodles from a restaurant & add our own panseared meat & veg at home. I like ghee & garlic with these meals. It's still quite affordable if you only buy the starch premade, and it tastes just as good (if not better) than the typical restaurant meal.

Although I admit that it doesn't match Asian food made by true chefs and aficionados!!

sparklemaman In response to the questions above, I too love Asian foods but can't seem to quite pull it off at home, well, I like what I make but my pickiest constituent, my sweet DD, doesn't agree I have made Mollie Katzen's Rice Fried Vegetables http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recip...ed-vegetables/ a number of times and it goes quickly and seems to be enjoyed by all.

I'd love to read some tips on Asian cuisine!

sparklemaman Ooh, what a fun thread!! So glad to have found you all

Over the weekend I made pan seared scallops, very garlic-y sauteed zucchini and shallots, seared green beans with garlic, roasted beets and jasmine rice. Last night was spinach tortellini with mascarpone cheese and a cherry tomato salad with black olives and crumbled bleu cheese. Tonight I am thinking pierogies and broccoli sauteed with shallots and carrots. I need to check out what else I have not used up from our CSA share.

Ditto for a Vietnamese rice noodle bowl by keeping noodles, garlic-chili paste, lime juice and fish sauce in the fridge. Korean ingredients are also pretty easy to stock - you need soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, Korean chili paste. And rice, always rice! It sounds like a lot, but things like a bottle of fish sauce last a long time, and we eat this type of dish probably twice a week.
Sometimes when a spicy Asian food craving hits, I make some rice or noodles, saute up whatever vegetables and tofu/protein I have and mix with this sauce (mix to taste): soy sauce, sesame oil, sriracha, rice vinegar, extra garlic optional.
Add in mirin, rice wine vinegar, and fried garlic and you can make basically anything. And in a pinch, spaghetti can sub in for long noodles. :-)

Tonight I wanted something a little different, so I made pretzel-crusted chicken with honey mustard dipping sauce, mashed potatoes and fresh Jacob's Cattle beans from our garden, simmered in bacon-flavored broth.
