My hubby's working late and I don't feel like doing dishes so off to the bagel shop i went. A dozen: salt, everything, plain, dill, and a choco chip (for later...), and two cream cheeses to choose from. That's our dinner, with some cut up fruit and veggies.<br><br>
What's everyone else eating? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Oh that sounds good! My kind of meal for sure....<br><br>
Not sure about dinner here - DH has been doing all the dinners since my night time morning sickness makes me want to puke whenever I step into the kitchen and attempt to cook LOL!

That's an interesting dinner idea. I'll have to keep it in mind for my bread-loving familia.<br><br>
We're having lamb, rice, and peas. I love lamb with rice!

I was considering scrambled eggs, but I think turkey burgers.<br><br>
My dh is cooking chicken for himself because he always shops and cooks for himself. He called to see if we needed anything from the store, and Molly asked him for macaroni and cheese in the black container. Not only does it have partially hydrogenated oil in it, it's a darn Nestle product. I want to talk to her about why it is unhealthy, but she gets so resentful. So I'm trying to decide if a little bit once in awhile is OK. What I should do is get the Amy's or Seeds of Change kind, but she loves that Stouffers and specifically asks for it. Ugh.<br><br>
I'm having organic turkey burgers from Trader Joe's. Has anyone tried these? I love them more than any other ground turkey/turkey burger I've ever tried. I'm thinking I might have corn or butternut squash to go along with them.<br><br>
My husband and his family love lamb, but I can't stand it. I've had it a few times where it was OK, but that taste, that taste like I'm licking wool or something--I just don't like that strong taste. Although the other day when my SMIL and FIL were visiting and roasted a boneless leg of lamb, it kind of smelled like gyros in here, which wasn't too bad.

Chili. Wanted something simple and easy since I didn't really feel like cooking. But I am going to be gone all day tomorrow so DH is on his own for dinner. If I made him fend for himself two nights in a row he'd get all hurt. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Sure, it's from Laurel's Kitchen...<br><br>
6 c whole wheat flour<br>
1 T salt<br>
(mix)<br>
Add 1 t honey<br>
2 T olive oil<br>
1 1/2 c warm water<br><br>
Dissolve 2 t yeast in 1 c warm water<br><br>
Mix all together... Knead 20 minutes (or autoknead if you have a dough hook <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> )<br><br>
Let rise for 1 hour or so, till nice and perky and full.<br><br>
Round out and let rise again for 30-45 minutes.<br><br>
Make 2 balls and let sit for a good 15 minutes till nice and fluffy. Toss into crusts, let rise another 15 minutes or so and bake 25 minutes at 375. (Ooops, put toppingson before baking <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">)<br><br>
If you don't have a dough hook you may have to add a touch more water.... I never do though, because my machine seems to require more flour than when I hand mix?? Don't know why.<br><br>
Makes two BIG hand tossed pizzas, or 3 thin crust big pizzas! Yum.<br><br>
I sometimes add crushed rosemary, oregano, & basil from my herb garden for a fancy yummy touch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I made a big pasta salad with rotini, steamed brocoli florets, pepperoni, Colby-Jack cheese, grape tomatoes, and sliced black olives; tossed with "salad supreme" seasoning & Italian dressing.<br><br>
Then I threw it into a take-out container & gulped it down on the run to my kids' ballgames <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
The kids had cereal for supper - it's all they had time for! :LOL

I have some of the kind in the box with the powder, but I end up adding extra cheese to it usually. Well, OK, I do it if it is the Annie's kind. If it is the store brand, I leave it as is, but I might add peas or cauliflower. My daughter likes the kind with the powder, but she wants the single serve microwave kind so that she can mix the powder in herself, but not mix it all the way in so she can eat the powder right on top of the pasta. Yuck! I've stopped buying that kind and just give her plain pasta with some parmesan.<br><br>
The pasta salad and the pizza sounds good. I really wanted pizza tonight, but didn't have the ingredients, so I made the turkey burgers. Is the pizza crust good? I've tried several kind, and mine is usually tasteless.<br><br>
For some reason I decided to make cinammon rolls tonight. I am waiting for them to rise so I can bake them and go to bed!

You need this recipe...you can make them before bed and bake them in the morning. They are SUPER easy and no one will know they aren't from scratch.<br><br><b>Cinnamon Buns</b><br><br>
20 frozen dough balls<br>
1 C brown sugar<br>
1/4 C vanilla instant pudding mix<br>
1 T cinnamon<br>
1/4 C melted butter<br>
pecan pieces (optional)<br><br>
Grease a 10" bundt pan and add frozen rolls. Sprinkle with brown sugar, pudding mix, and cinnamon. Pour melted butter over all, and sprinkle with pecans if desired. Cover with a clean, damp cloth. Leave out at room temp overnight. In the morning, prefeat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover rolls and bake for 25 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a serving plate. Serve warm.

It is cold and rainy today..........a good day for making homemade pasta (playdough you can eat!) We will crank out the noodles this afternoon and make a simple sauce of tomatoes, peppers, garlic and onion and serve it with people's choice of pine nuts, Parmesan or feta cheese. Salad, too. Maybe even make a batch of chocolate/white chocolate/pecan chip cookies for dessert. The kids can help with the whole meal. Gotta like that!<br><br>
Of course, I probably should start with breakfast for my little ones. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">
