newmamalizzy A hot summer's day chicken and kale soup to use up the last of the rotisserie. I should probably crockpot that, come to think of it.
Yesterday 08:21 PM
Ragana Firing up both crockpots tomorrow for roasted chicken and baked potatoes.

Kate&Joey Sunday night was spaghetti with roasted tomato sauce. Re-purposed leftover sauce into pizza on Monday with roasted red peppers and a green salad. Tonight is curry with broccoli and tofu.

Yup, spaghetti and meatballs with tomato sauce last night, homemade sushi tonight, but I still need to get sushi rice.

KatelynRose grilled salmon, asparagus, and squash I'M SO EXCITED I've been craving salmon for awhile now, and asparagus is my favorite. Oh boy oh boy!

apeydef I'm making beef stroganoff and peas tonight. I'm cheating and using canned cream of mushroom soup. I usually do not use any canned foods and make my own condensed soups, soak my own beans etc.

Yes!!

Thurs. we had tom yum soup with rice and Fri. half-homemade pizza (dough by Trader Joe's). Tonight is a party so we'll probably eat there. Tomorrow is the last night before school resumes - probably tacos. Mon. and Tues. are kids' choice because school is starting - I already know that one wants homemade sushi, so I will make that with canned salmon, cucumber and probably avocado.

apeydef I made hamburgers with lettuce tomato and avocado with baked fries and corn. No bake cookies for dessert. It was really good!
08-22-2014 05:21 PM

Grr. 1. How is that possible? It's pot pie! 2. With the work you put into it? Eat a polite serving that day, then remember to talk about it another time, huh?

Kate&Joey Sweet potato and black bean casserole.

newmamalizzy Didn't have many eating-ready leftovers for leftover night tonight, so I repurposed. Rendered ham fat from Monday to base a corn and potato chowder using leftover corn on the cob and mashed potatoes. I also blended up Tuesday's chick peas and rice with tomatoes, added some breadcrumb and egg and fried it into patties. DD hated it. I think DBF will also not be a fan. I thought it was good, though Served the soup garnished with a little smoked herring fillet and that patties with leftover green beans. A good meal overall, but not the easy leftover night I had envisioned. And now we have leftovers of the leftovers. I HATE that!
08-21-2014 01:20 PM
Gingerjv today we had almost Thank's giving day dinner;-) We made the whole turkey, mushed potatoes, green pees and fresh tomatoes/cucumbers salad;-)
08-21-2014 10:28 AM
apeydef Homemade pot pie tonight!

Plan for the week so far after a look at the pantry:

* Chickpea curry (using a packet of butter chicken sauce) with rice, plus cauliflower/broccoli we froze before we left on vacation
* Frozen spring rolls, rice, tom yum soup with edamame or tofu
* Pasta with canned salmon (garlic, parsley, lemon), plus lime coleslaw or salad

I also have red lentils and veggie broth cubes, so I might make a soup if it's rainy, and possibly a Thai curry with leftover vegetables and baby corn.
I did the chickpea curry dinner and the spring roll dinner minus the soup. Yesterday we had Thai green curry with more of the cauliflower/broccoli. We had pasta for lunch the other day, so I may make the red lentil soup tonight (it's raining) and then pizza bread Friday night.

apeydef I made ravioli. Kids and I just ate it with butter and mixed veggies(cauliflower, broccoli, carrots) I made marinara for DHs.
