apeydef I'm going for a SAMs club trip so we will be having rotisserie chicken wraps/salad.
Yesterday 11:23 AM
Kate&Joey Last night was peanut noodles, baked tofu, and steamed broccoli.
Tonight is pizza with fig preserves, manchego, and proscuitto. I will roast some Brussels sprouts as well.

Gingerjv Today i cooked lasagna and greek salad. Also had some apple pie)

apeydef Ok so I ended up making grilled cheese and apple sauce. My daughter has her church class on Wednesdays so I try to have leftovers or something quick on these nights. Tomorrow is grocery shopping day so the fridge is scarce.

newmamalizzy Ended up with big salad with olives, feta, and grilled chicken breast from the freezer stash. Tater tots for good measure.

This week's plan so far:

* Crockpot potatoes with steamed broccoli
* Noodles with tofu & vegetable stirfry
* Frozen phyllo spinach spirals and roasted cauliflower
Tonight the spinach spirals, but I think I will also make rice and soup (with cauliflower and cabbage).

newmamalizzy Salad and....something. Ideally something nearly instant after braving 2 doctors appointments in a row with my 4 week old this afternoon. Yikes.

apeydef @kitchensqueen I baked it with chicken broth and spices. It turned out really good, a tiny dry but good and my kids loved it!!
10-21-2014 04:54 PM
Fortune Teller Creamed eggs over toast, maybe some collard greens from the garden.

I've never made creamed eggs over toast before, but I remember my mom's best friend used to make them for me when she was babysitting, and I HATED them. Now though when I think about what I remember from that dish, they sound pretty good! I hope I will like them! (my kids too!)

You're welcome - how did you end up cooking it and how did they turn out?

I've been using this recipe from Saveur for years. I just swap the oysters for chicken because we're not huge oyster fans, and it's pretty expensive dish to make when you account for all of the different kinds of protein in there!

Ugh, sore throats all around here. So just leftover perloo if we can stomach it, or chicken noodle soup if we can't!

Too bad you can't try it - it's so addicting. :-) Two of my favorite tricks for making sure meat doesn't dry out are putting on some kind of a glaze, like honey mustard (with a pinch of cayenne mixed in is especially good!) or braising it. A little white wine, or stock if you don't go in for alcohol, would both be good.

Pheasant!? I am seriously jealous. My absolute favorite way to eat pheasant is apple wood smoked. I wrote a post about it awhile back when we did it for Thanksgiving, if you're looking for ideas.

Tonight it's chilly and we're trying to eat through pantry goods and freezer stuff before we move, so I made a proper perloo. Used up some rice that's been in pantry forever, as well as andouille sausage, the last of the shrimp and some chicken from the freezer. Score.

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!

Had anyone ever did this with pheasant? Any tips?

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

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!
10-17-2014 07:41 PM
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 jalapeƱos. Served as tacos with avacado and pickled jalapeƱos along with corn salad (black beans, red onion, lime juice, red pepper).
10-17-2014 07:36 PM
Fortune Teller lentil tacos with pico de gallo. I ate all the pico de gallo myself, and now I'm craving more!!
