apeydef Leftover stir fry tonight. Homemade flour-less peanut better cookies.
Tomorrow I'm going to make bean enchiladas. I have leftover rice from the stir fry so I thought if throw that in too.
Today 06:01 PM
kitchensqueen Honey mustard chicken, canned corn and egg noodles cooked in chicken stock with parsley. Anti-fancy food.
Today 05:28 PM
Kate&Joey Vegan burrito bowls. "Queso" brown rice, pinto beans, salsa, avocado, and homemade pickled jalapeños from DH's garden. He grows them spicy!
Today 04:51 PM
Fortune Teller Beef stew in the crockpot. I googled "homemade Dinty Moore Beef Stew" to get a recipe that closely resembles the canned stuff- Super thick 'gravy', without a heavy tomato base. I hope it turns out!
Today 12:18 PM
Ragana Figured out my dinners for the week:

* Chipotle chili with pinto beans, black beans, tomatoes, and corn
* Tonight - Yakisoba noodles with carrot, onion, cabbage, and tofu
* Baked tofu nuggets
* Okonomiyaki (Japanese vegetable pancakes)
* Spaghetti with red sauce and focaccia

I am not a baker, but I'm trying to find a few simple recipes I can master. So, yesterday I made brownies, today I am making mixed berry muffins, and I hope to make focaccia later this week from this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/easiest-focaccia-recipe/

I have been overruled, my husband loves it.

Tonight is sausage & eggplant. Received a gift of home made garlic sage butter, so we'll have that on top!

Fortune Teller Potatoes, sausage, and green beans, all thrown together in the crock pot. Homemade bread to go with.

kitchensqueen Shepherd's pie tonight. And a beer for me.
Yesterday 03:41 AM
apeydef Yesterday I made pizza sloppy joys, Annie's Mac n cheese, peas and corn.

Tonight it's chicken stir fry.
09-28-2014 05:15 PM
Fortune Teller Baked potatoes with all the fixings, and a salad. I needed something easy tonight- It's been a busy weekend and I'm worn out!
09-28-2014 03:58 PM
kitchensqueen Absolutely lacking inspiration here... so I'm making penne with bottled marinara, with vacuum-packed chicken (leftover from the summer camping food stash) mixed in.
09-27-2014 07:45 PM
kitchensqueen I ended up having the pizza for a snack in the afternoon, so I had a baked potato and chicken nuggets for dinner. LM had parmesan noodles, two slices of provolone cheese and a cookie. Food fail.
09-27-2014 06:33 PM
Fortune Teller Vegetarian tacos... I ate way too much.
09-27-2014 01:58 PM
pumabearclan Left over salmon spread with crackers. New recipe, not one I will try again. Will use the salmon in ravioli instead. Also beer and fresh tomato and cheese.

Just in time for all of the great cool weather stuff you can make!

Thanks! We are excited, and also petrified!

Lunch was our big meal today since husband works tonight, so I made half home made pizza, since we were in a bit of rush to get food on the table since we'd been out all morning. There are a few slices left over, so that's likely what I'll eat for dinner later. Little Man continues to be on a parmesan noodles and applesauce kick...

We had veggie potstickers last night, too, plus a mixed vegetable stir-fry.

And CONGRATS, Kitchensqueen! What great news!

Sounds good apeydef! I love laid back days like that, where anything goes!

Salmon, rice, and buttered mixed veggies. I can hardly choke down fish, but the family likes it and it was on sale, and I know it's super healthy. A generous dosing of lemon pepper made it go down easier Oddly enough, I just recently re-incorporated lemon pepper in our kitchen. I used to use it when we were newlyweds, but for whatever reason it kind of just disappeared from our lives. I had forgotten how much I like it!

Fortune Teller Mushroom alfredo. I haven't eaten pasta in years, until tonight. Being gluten free on our current budget (Now that I'm part-time) is just not in my skill set. Think I'm going to have to start exercising now.....

Yep, she protested So tacos it was. I got a break, though, and DH cooked. That leaves me with pasta & scallops and chickpea curry this week, although DD1 is asking for takeout pad thai. I may be able to make some approximation from flat noodles and tofu I have at home from the Asian store. Trying not to spend any more money on food this last part of the month!
