sunnylady303 potatoes stewed with peppers, onions, and eggplant with a crusty french bread...
08-29-2006 06:32 PM
alsoSarah Last night: A thick chicken and veggie stew over biscuits.

Tonight, I'm not sure: either Jambalaya or Etouffe. Salad. Corn bread.
Uber chocolatey cupcakes, with frosting that merits the same desciption.

CrazyCatLady I took that minestrone soup that Vons/Safeway makes (the vegetarian one with lots of peppers and other veggies). I served that over brown rice with cheddar cheese on top. It's really good that way and my toddler loves it.

Alkenny My carnivores were happy last night...I grilled sirloin burgers for them (I had grilled portabellos ), salad, fresh sliced tomatoes and seasoned fries.
08-10-2006 12:46 PM
alsoSarah Chicken and veggie fajitas, cilantro rice, and margaritas. Or maybe mojitos.

Brownies for dessert.

Alkenny Pasta, mushrooms, onions, peas and a creamy sauce *yes, mushrooms again...I got a great deal on some that were 'past their prime', but still good to me!*
08-08-2006 09:05 PM
mamato2boys BBQ chicken, corn fritters, salad and watermelon.

momof3sweeties I'm grilling some fresh silver salmon my 10yo just caught, veggie salad and rice! We've lucked out and have been eating lots of salmon lately....mmmm!

Leilalu I put a chuck roast in the crockpot with a bit of water, then added some mole to it.

i hope it turns out ok:

I actually made the mole from scratch. I have made it before, but always slightly different.

serenetabbie Tonight I made two home made pizzas. One with pepperoni and one with tomatoes, basil, roasted red & yellow peppers, a little left over grilled eggplant, spinach and artichoke hearts.
08-08-2006 06:19 PM
janerose I made a big macaroni salad with tuna, peas, eggs, and onions in it. We'll eat it for dinner tonight too. I also made a few extra hard boiled eggs. We'll have raw baby carrotts too, and fresh fruit for dessert.

MaxiMom Tacos tonight, easy. Last night was veggie lo mein, yummy. And it was so easy to make. I'll keep that one on the menu.

kallyn Stuffed peppers (no rice) with caesar salad and maybe green beans.
08-08-2006 12:29 PM
alsoSarah double post....
08-08-2006 12:28 PM
alsoSarah I've been really craving the taste of the lentil soup w/Italian sausage and mustard greens, but I haven't been feeling like soup, so tonight I'm going to make those elements into a thick sauté, and serve that over brown rice.

Probably with salad, since I have a little chunk of delightful aged gouda to grate onto it, and the grape tomatoes are turning red, finally.

I may make peach cobbler for dessert, or a rustic peach tart..... and an extra for a potluck tomorrow night....

08-08-2006 12:05 PM
VikingKvinna Yup, finally cooler here too. Phew! Tonight I am trying the infamous honey-baked lentils in the crockpot, and will probably serve it with some brown rice and (you guessed it) salad. I also took out some frozen chicken-and-dumplings filling for DP, in case he doesn't like/want the lentils.

Alkenny Scalloped potatoes and mushrooms tonight.

I need to make a salad using up our CSA leftover veggies. We also have lots of yummy salad mix.

Leilalu Yesterday I made chicken stock for the first time! with whole organicn pasture fed chicken from Trader Joes. SO for lunch I made a chicken/raw cheddar quesadilla with a bit of salt, browned in a pan. With some avacado, tomatoes and salt and lime on top.

For dinner, who knows? Maybe a curry? Or a mole?

I just have to sy, it is THE best chicken I have ever made. It tastes so good slow cooked all day. Last night we had potato leek soup made with some of the broth
08-06-2006 07:23 PM
kallyn Lemon pepper seasoned ribeye steaks with sauteed broccoli! Yay for beef sales at the grocery store.
08-06-2006 05:37 PM
HelloKitty Zuccini from the garden stuffed with all sorts of other good garden stuff like tomatos, onions, peppers, basil mixed with some brown rice and hamburg and topped with chedder cheese. Yummmm.

ETA - Hey I just noticed I had the same thing last time I posted to this thread! You can tell I'm overwhelmed with zuccini in my garden.
08-06-2006 05:19 PM
Alkenny Last night was sushi night!

Tonight is lentils, carrots, onion 'stew' and an Italian loaf.
08-01-2006 03:40 PM
Peppamint we're having a repeat of last night... but I think we'll have some green beans too.

Ellp We had a lemon roasted chicken with a wild rice pilaf (from a package, I'm afraid), boiled broccoli, and buttered carrots with summer savory (an herb). Dessert was cubed cantalope.

Unfortunately we ate at 5, and after everyone went to bed (its now 11:30pm), I had a deli turkey sandwich...:
