witchypants Last night: chicken verde with lime basil served with spanish rice and black beans (I actually just made this up we have a bunch of tomatillos in the garden that needed to get used so I just chopped them up with onions and garlic and threw it over some chicken thighs then squeezed lime over the whole business and baked the chicken. Then as soon as it came out I threw some chopped lime basil over everything so ridiculously good - we'll definitely be doing this again!)

Today: Stuffed delicata squash with tomatoes gratin on the side
Tue: Pumpkin Penne pasta w/ a green salad and pumpkin bread
Wed: Salisbury steak (thanks Kitchensqueen for the recipe!) with mashed potatoes, corn and a green salad
Thurs: We'll be out late that night so probably we'll get zucchini fajitas at our favorite Mexi restaurant
Fri: Stir Fry with Spicy garlic eggplant on the side

I'm going to make the crockpot baked potatoes and then put out toppings: steamed broccoli, cheese, sour cream, hot sauce. Sometimes I do Mexican style toppings: black beans, salsa, etc.

The noodles I have are these thin noodles sold in packages of "nests" - so good! I just stir-fry any veggies I have handy and either bake or fry the tofu. Our favorite sauces are peanut, Vietnamese or a Chinese dipping sauce I learned to make in college (soy sauce + rice vinegar + sesame oil + sriracha + optional chopped garlic). Making that tonight, I just decided!

Fortune Teller pork with mushroom sauce on crepes. I don't think I much care for pork... It's not something I usually make, and I could barely eat it. In fact, the whole family seemed put off by it. Think I'll stick with beef and chicken!

Kate&Joey I don't usually cook meat, but sometimes I do when DSD is here. Crockpot pork with apricot jam, red onion, and home grown jalapeños. Served as tacos with avacado and pickled jalapeños along with corn salad (black beans, red onion, lime juice, red pepper).

Fortune Teller lentil tacos with pico de gallo. I ate all the pico de gallo myself, and now I'm craving more!!

kitchensqueen Lazy dinner here - spaghetti with bottled marinara. I didn't even add anything to it this time.

Kate&Joey Arugula salad with roasted butternut squash, honeycrisp apples, pecans, and dried cranberries with maple mustard vinaigrette. Yum!

Special dessert as report cards came today: grilled baguette with brie, pumpkin butter, and semisweet chocolate chips. Oh. My. Goodness.

Thanks! Yea I didn't feel much hungry lol.

I ended up baking some alexia waffle fries for DS. He ate those and applesauce. He snacked on fruit all day so I didn't feel too bad about not having a complete dinner
Made DH taco salad again. Laundry is done and house is sanitized, so praying nobody else gets it and we can get back on track tomorrow!

* Potato-bean soup or roasted potato wedges and seitan chorizo or, if I get really ambitious, homemade gnocci (anyone made those before?)
* Roasted cauliflower and ??? maybe chili. I have a pretty large tupperware of leftover pinto beans I could make into chili.
Thank you!!

You could always freeze the beans too. I make a big batch and then freeze them in quart size bags.
