Scalloped ham & potato casserole. It's s omething I picked up from one of my BH&G cookbooks. The first time I made it, my husband recognized it as something his mother still makes, but she calls it "hot dog pie", with cut-up hot dogs in lieu of diced ham and it has a pastry crust. That's just overboard, in my book- when the main ingrediant of a dish is potatoes, why do you need a crust??? Rolling Eyes

Irish (lamb) stew with red wine, followed by Banana bread with toasted pecans, both made from scratch. I just got a wild hair tonight. If I have any strength left I'll make a batch of savory seitan for my vegetarian husband.

Chilli tonight. There's leftover beef stew in the fridge for tomorrow and a leg of lamb for Sunday dinner.

Something with chicken; I haven't decided yet. I just found an unopened jar of 5 spice powder in my cabinet, so I'm thinking about using it. Maybe sauted chicken with 5 spice, lemon & ginger root? Does that sound OK?

Last night flatbread pizzas and salad.

I used red pesto, thin slices of onion and bits of red bell pepper, left-over roast duck, and grated extra sharp cheddar, with a drizzle of olive oil and a bit of cracked black pepper.

Tonight:

Red pesto & olive oil with tiny meatballs over pasta (kind yet to be determined), and salad.

We're on the same wavelength- I asked Jayson what he wanted for dinner tonight and he said spaghetti & meatballs! I make the meatballs from scratch and use whole wheat pasta. We'll have a green salad as well.

We were going to have sauteed chicken & mushrooms with blanched broccoli & rice, but I forgot that we have leftovers from a meal out on Friday.

Might mix & match, the leftovers are pasta in a cream sauce!

Tonight is chicken, noodles and broccoli in an Asian sauce. This is a super-easy meal and a little on the spicy side, so on a day like today when I'm feeling under the weather it's a good choice.

Tonight is pot luck.

The rest of the chicken & mushrooms, the rest of the pasta.

I think I might make roll-up sandwiches, my husband can have the pasta, and I'll have a side salad or some low-fat cottage cheese (which is no hardship, I love the stuff).

I did pick up a nice little pork tenderloin. There are some really good recipes in this month's Cooking Light. I need to go find it!

Ooh- I love pork tenderloin. I usually marinate it in red wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic & herbs for a couple hours then grill it with some halved onions.

Tonight I think we'll have tacos.

Well, we had pasta with meat sauce last night and unfortunately, it's Chick-Fil-A tonight.

:sigh:

School Spirit nite for daughter's school,, they get 20% of the take. You'd think my check for $400/month would be enough..right?

No idea.

Lent sort of crept up on me! Maybe salad, or sushi.

Tonight: venison roast with sherry gravy, broccoli and herb-roasted redskin potatoes.

Tomorrow is Jayson's birthday, so we'll have steak (his favorite) with onion rings and salad. I just finished baking his cake, but I don't get to have any. Sad

We had tuna wraps from the recipe I posted in "meatless".

Tonight we're going out. I don't know where.

Tomorrow no meat for me, beyond that I don't know!

On another forum I frequent there have been awesome suggestions. Lots of them are culled from vegetarian or vegan sites and look great.

If your kids like vegetables you've got a lot of easy options, too. One thing I like to do is blanch and crisp broccoli, carrots, etc., and serve them over greens, with a dressing. Then you can have hummous and crackers on the side.

Or top it with tuna salad, or salmon.

Oven roasted root vegetables are great. Also beans, black bean soup, casseroles with rice and veg....it took me a while to think about all this stuff, I grew up in a primarily meat-and-potatoes household, but once I was on my own I changed around. Meat's too expensive for a student budget! That started me off.

We do a lot of veggies with Brown Rice. I buy brown Basmati rice in bulk!

I just steam them slightly, then toss them in and sautee with some sesame oil and ginger/garlic/teryaki whatever the mood is. They go over surprisingly well!

Of course, totally spaced on it being Friday and packed the Parochial school kid a turkey sandwich!! Shocked Eh. well...we're getting there!

I think we're noshing.

Probably crackers, veggies or a salad (for me), hummous, a bit of tuna salad, olives, pickles, maybe cheese....

Hey, I heard you can make polenta in a crock pot! Who knew? Very Happy I need to try it.

In fact, I have a big crock pot that has a split liner...I could do polenta in one half, and a marinara sauce or vegetable ragu in the other!
