Title: What's for supper?
Post by: WIPs on July 10, 2007 09:57:24 AM
Okay, so I stole this idea from a forum I lurk at, but I think it would be fun to share what we're for having for dinner and perhaps share some recipes.

Tonight we're having veggie soup. Celery, tomatoes, potatoes, onions...Very healthy and very yummy.

What are you having for dinner? ;)

I have a pork shoulder cooking in the crock pot and we are going to have shredded pork tacos with cheese and sour cream.

I threw a roast in the crockpot this morning with some BBQ sauce, so I'll shred it up for sandwiches.  Not sure about sides, though.

Dinner last night was delicious. We ate it with some french bread. Today's dinner will be leftover soup.

I'm pretty simple in the summer. I'm having pan-seared asparagus with lemon zest, roasted new potatoes, and a bit of broiled walleye. It's all been cooked already. I cook once a week.

when i got home last night my mom had made some sort of stew with steak, potatoes, and carrots...which very much resembles the vegetable soup she made the night before. only the broth tastes more meaty than tomatoey.

oh but BEFORE i came home, i ate dinner with my friends, whose mother made a enchalada chili cheese casserole, with a dip that consisted of tomatoes, corn, and kidney beans. it was really good, but i think black beans would have made it even better.

it was a nice change, for the past few nights i've just been fixing myself a can of green beans, which i prepare with a splash of olive oil, a splash of soy sauce, and lots of black pepper, garlic powder, and parmasean cheese. yum-o!

Last nights dinner was Sausage + Bean Casserole with mashed potatoes and cabbage, it was delish.

Tonights is, I'm not sure what. I'm going over to my friends house so I'll either have dinner there or whip something before I head out the door.

Well, it's kind of a tradition for us to eat white rice with every meal, so sometimes I get tired of it. I've never tried brown rice before...ever.

If you sub out half or even all the water for stock when you're cooking your brown rice it will definately improve the flavor. I also add a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes to the brown rice while it's cooking for extra kick. I happen to like brown rice over white rice personally. It has a firmer texture that I like. The texture is even better if you melt butter in the pot first and lightly toast the rice until it's translucent before you add the water/stock.

I want to try to make some sort of Eggplant parmesian but we'll see. I have to find a good recipe. Does anyone know of any?


Title: Re: What's for supper?

I don't know any recipes...Sorry!

For dinner last night, we had spicy mushroom flavored soup with ramen noodles with a fried egg on the side. Watermelon for dessert.

I'm roasting a chicken tonight, with taters, carrots, onions, and celery.

I made maple mustard burgers on the grill for lunch:

Maple Mustard Burgers
1 lb. ground beef
1/4 cup (or so) chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Glaze
3 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp spicy grainy mustard
1 tbsp of cider vinegar
1 tsp of liquid honey
1/2 tsp of dry mustard
1 tsp orange zest chopped fine

4 buns, your choice (I like seeded)

DIRECTIONS:
1. In a medium size bowl combine the ground beef, chopped onion, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Form the mixture into 4 patties of equal size.  Place patties on a tray to transport to the grill.
2. In a medium size bowl whisk together all glaze ingredients.
3. Preheat barbeque grill to medium high heat. Oil the grill, if necessary.
4. Brush the burgers with prepared glaze. Place patties on grill for 7-8 minutes basting every 2 minutes or until dark golden brown and slightly crisp on exterior. Flip the burgers and continue to cook for another 7 minutes basting every 2 minutes. Remove burgers from grill and place on tray.  This is for well done, adjust the time and temperature accordingly if you prefer a less well done burger.
5. Place sliced buns on the bun rack for 1 minute.
6. Serve burgers with warm buns and desired toppings.

Tonight's Sunday, so I'm going the lazy route - I'm making pizzas (frozen, from the grocery store). I have certain thing I must have once a week - pizza, mac and cheese, and roast. Pizza is the only thing that rarely changes.

Just finished cleaning the dishes from brown rice w/ asian-y citrus sauce and breaded pan-fried chicken.

what!? No one has posted dinners for two days? I love this thread... :)

Anyways- tonight was grilled salmon, almond rice pilaf, and frozen broccoli with cheese sauce (I had never tried it- it is not so bad :D)


Title: Re: What's for supper?

I like to post the next day. I get so sleepy after I eat. ;D Seems like last night was fish night for everyone. WIP what kind of fish did you have? And what about the pumpkin?

Last night was baked breaded tilapia fillets. Lemon scented brown rice. Sauteed baby spinach w/ garlic and lemon. Oh and a little squirt of lemon on the the fish when it was done.

tilapia is my favorite fish EVER.
my fiance marinates them in italian dressing along with other seasonings...i believe lemon pepper and garlic powder for fish. it's the same process for other meats, italian dressing marinade and whatever seasonings suit the meat. he usually tells me "get out the kitchen, it's a suprise!" and then when it's time to taste we play "guess what i seasoned the meat with."

lol is it just me or did that sound a little dirty?


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: WIPs on July 18, 2007 09:44:52 AM
I love tilapia! My favorite fish too!

The fish was salmon and I don't know how my mom made the pumpkin. I think she just seasoned it and that's it.


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: poo head on July 18, 2007 10:00:18 AM
Tilapia is my favorite too. Not too fishy. Although last night I kinda under-cooked it so it was more fishy than normal.

Lady_Cyanida: I've done chicken & steak w/ Italian dressing, but I never even thought to do fish!

Maybe if I did that, the hubby wouldn't insist on slathering on mass amounts of ketchup! I loathe ketchup. I make this nicely seasoned fish and he acts like I heated up frozen fish sticks! That's what I get for giving in and putting bread crumbs on everything.

WIPs: I've only had pumpkin pie and pumpkin cookies. Now I must try a more savory version of pumpkin. Yum! Off to search for pumpkin recipes!


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Kaissa on July 18, 2007 12:41:13 PM
ohh pumpkin. I'm going to go search for pumpkin recipes too. :D

My parents are getting back from vacation (living up here over the summer) so I figured I'd make fancy food:
Gnocchi with pesto
Maybe some sort of salad.

I need a protein.

last night we had deep fried zuccinii in drakes batter...(SO good) and tilapia oddly enough....lol
i didnt like the fish much tho..which is odd cuz i love fish..or any seafood..so i dont know..hummm BUT

today we are having chicken..eathier it will be ODed in lemon pepper..very good OR deep fried in drakes...(i like drakes lol)

also since i just found this post thought i would say what i had the day before too...lol
it was hamburger mixed in with mac and cheese (velveta) and mashed potatoes...i put the mac on top of the pototaoes and its REALLY good..its like hamburger helper kinda but way less salt and better for you..and the boyfriend who wont pick anything likes it SO it works...


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: poo head on July 18, 2007 06:38:40 PM
I'll post for tonight since we ate early. We had BBQ boneless skinless chicken breasts in the oven. Mashed red potatoes w/ garlic & cheddar cheese. And I took a note from Kaissa's meal the other night and had frozen broccoli w/ garlic & cheddar cheese.

Nyx_slittleDemon: What is "drakes batter"? I'm intrigued!

~ I have a question. Since finding out I was pregnant I've been trying to eat more meat. I've only ever eaten chicken, turkey, fish, and Arby's roast beef. :D For me it's more of a texture thing. Well anyway back to the question. The husband thinks I should try pork, but just the idea of it kinda grosses me out. Any suggestions for pork that will have a chicken-like texture/taste??


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: WIPs on July 18, 2007 06:55:34 PM
I want to know what drakes batter is too!

Poohead-No suggestions for pork. We rarely eat it. Sorry!
Your mashed potatoes sound really good!

Tonight we're having Mexican short ribs (frozen), Spicy Buffalo Wings (frozen), and carrots and celery with dip.



Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Kaissa on July 18, 2007 07:42:05 PM
tonight... meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans  ;D

poo head - the only suggestion I have for pork is to throw a pork roast in a crockpot all day, then shred it up with BBQ sauce and put it on buns, or mix it up with green chilis and salsa and have it on tortillas.  I'm not a big pork fan either so those are the only two ways I will eat it. Cooking it all day then shredding it kind of gives it a texture like shredded chicken. As a bonus, it makes a TON, so you can freeze some up for later.

I don't know what drake's batter is either. I googled it and found a website - it's fry mix, which doesn't explain a lot (at least not to me), but it sounds yummy.


Title: Re: What's for supper?

I'm stuffed. We also had cabbage and more pumpkin. The hot wings were so good!

you know my advice is to stick with what you're already eating, no need to change now, you get plenty of lean proteins.but that's only my opinion :)

Tonight we had new york strip steaks on the grill. I skipped the normal spices I use and opted to go with the more simple(but incredibly tasty) seasoning.
First bring the steaks to room temp.  Coat in olive oil, fresh ground black pepper, and coarse sea salt. Make sure you give your grill plenty of time to warm up if its a gas grill(20-30 minutes on high heat) Sear on both sides for about 3 minutes a side, then lower the temp and cook to your preferred doneness(yeah I know thats not a word) Make sure to let the steaks rest for about 5 minutes before cutting into them, you will be thankful if you wait, it lets the juices settle.
To go along with that we had some garlic Parmesan mashed potatoes, and a mushroom risotto. It was most definitely tasty! If anyone wants to know recipes for the sides, i will try to remember exactly what i did. I'm one of those cook-as-you-go type people ;D.

I could stick w/ what I'm already eating in the way of protein. But I went from eating chicken maybe once a week at best, to trying to eat some form of protein every night. I try to cook it different each night, but it's still the same chicken.  :P

It's hubby weekend and we'll probably go out to eat tonight, so no input from me.  8)

It was surprisingly good! :) I'm not usually a hot dog person, but with tons of mustard, it was yummy! I think I just liked the super crunchy batter stuff.

Hubby is gone for the weekend, so I think tonight is ramen noodles... or scrambled eggs.

I'm feeding hubby and friends who have been on a motorcycle ride all weekend. They will be starving and needing real food, as I'm sure they have eaten nothing but McDonald's for 3 days...

Don't worry. I was sitting in the dining room reading, but I had to get up every 5 minutes to baste the chicken. I ended up having to go back and reread everything I read anyway because I was so confused.  ;)

chattyKathi: Would you mind sharing a little more info on the slow cooked pork?

Not at all, its my own little thing I did, I took boneless center cut pork chops and cut them into four strips/pieces. salt and peppered them good and put them in the oven  with a little water in the pan, for about 20 minutes , then I added the BBQ sauce, I like Sweet Baby Ray's, also mixed with a little water, then cooked them in a low oven 325, for about two hours. Check them every so often so they don't burn. then in the last half hour or so I add more BBQ (not diluted)  and turn the oven up to 400, so it all gets nice and caramely. soo good.  try it, you'll like it!

Sorry, that probably wasn't what you were looking for. ::) I'll do some research if you want a recipe.

No no no. The market sounds like a much better idea. Now I must go searching for green tea ice cream next time I go grocery shopping.  ;D

I got mine at a Japanese super-market, in case that helps.

Well that is a bit depressing. We don't have any type of Asian markets. We do have a Middle Eastern type market, but it doesn't have anything interesting. The closest Trader Joe's is a bit over an hour away.  :(

Tonight was hubby's night to cook - we had BBQ pork of some sort, grilled corn on the cob, mac salad and garlic bread. Fantastic, since I didn't have to make it...or clean up! wooo!

I was thinking to have a grill salmon with chips (I know, it doesn't really match). But my husband and I have forgotten that his family is to visit us tonight. We had to change the plan to Jamie Oliver's fish pie.

As part of my "eat all food in freezer so I can defrost the damn thing" project, tonight will be rice made with the brothy mushroom soup I froze awhile back accompanied by a veggie stirfry made with tofu made chewy by freezing. I'll probably make a simple citrus-soy sauce for the stirfry.

I'm also planning on making some zucchini fritters sometime this weekend. Those will likely be accompanied by more rice, chicken sausage, and heirloom tomatoes dressed with olive oil.

I'm expecting both of those things to feed me three times.

Would you be willing to share your recipe for this? It sounds so good!

Dinner tonight for us was crockpot chicken with veggies and the yummiest rosemary parmesan biscuits that took about 2 minutes to make.  :)

Sure ! I'm the kind of cook who throws everything together and sees if it works out, so I don't have exact measurements. And I'm also a lazy cook so I don't have many steps. lol


Southwestern Creamy Chicken


Chicken breast cut into cubes or slices
Cut up regular green peppers, onions, and chile peppers
Cream
A small amount of Better than Boullion (or regular chicken broth)


1. Heat pan, add chicken.
2. After it turns slightly brown, add green peppers, onions, chile peppers, cream, and Better than Boullion. Simmer until done.


 Every time I cook something in my crockpot I always forget and end up with soup. lol

Thank you, braindead! :) I cook the same way you do, so I will figure it out. I'm trying your recipe very soon! I always need new chicken recipes - I keep making the same chicken over and over...and over :P

Oooh, neat thread!

We're having homemade chicken and dumplings with pan-fried green beans and iced tea...not exactly the healthiest meal, but it's what my brother chose for his belated-birthday meal ;)

I'll be trying out a new recipe for dessert - Butter Tart Squares.  I loooove butter tarts.

We had pork and eggs marinated in this amazing sauce. Then we had vegetable soup. A great meal!

And later I'm going to either have green tea ice cream or Trader's Joes carrot cake.

Tonight I have some peppers that I'm going to cut into strips, saute in some olive oil w/ grill seasoning and put them over a package of cooked ramen noodles w/o the seasoning packet. Sounds more complicated than it is. And since hubby is a butt that refuses to eat peppers, he already made himself ham & cheese sammies.

Tonight was black beans and rice, baked zucchini with garlic and basil, tater tots, cresants, green beans with tomatos and garlic, and frozen mixed veggies and salad with my new favorite dressing I made up the other day.

My meals are very random sometimes.

my cousin just found out that she has diabetes. she told me last night she ordered pizza and cheesey bread but instead of marinara sauce, those bastards put icing in the box! she said "what kind of cruel joke is god trying to play on me?!" my mom bought a calendar that has coupons at the bottom for all kinds of stuff, including deals at our favorite chinese joint  :) i asked her, "can you still eat chinese?" so i took her out to eat, and bought her gifts at rite aid..i felt bad because we're usually so mean to each other, even though we're usually joking, we still say some pretty mean stuff. so i was extra nice to her today, and said "hey, you've got diabetes, it's the least i can do!"

Last night was odd. I had a super lunch at McDonalds (Big Mc meal, except I got the side salad and saved that, soda, and the BBQ Chiptole snack wrap) kinda' late (1pmish). So last night I had a half pb and j sandwich with the side salad from McDonalds. They have horrible dressing options though. I like watching this thread because it gives me ideas...

Tonight is taco casserole at hubby's request.  To liven it up a bit I made fresh salsa with more heirloom tomatoes (yes, I'm addicted to them) and roasted peppers to put on the top with the guacamole and sour cream.

Dessert will be more spumoni! yay!


*edit...after chopping roasted peppers, do not stick your finger in your eye like I just did.  :-\

Nothing interesting tonight, but this is what I had for dinner last night:

--Pan-fried salmon with a sauce of sauteed tomatoes, zucchini, and garlic, which had a little white wine thrown in and reduced.

--Cornmeal-breaded fried okra

--corn, off the cob, cooked with cardamom, chili powder, and a bit if cayenne and butter.

tonight we had chicken alfrado and roasted potatoes...SO good..MMmmm but i think we ate to early i know ill be hungry later BUT i have ben and jerrys ice cream..banana split and brownie batter MMMmm

I made Calzones:  I took Frozen yeast rolls, let them thaw out.  Then I filled them with onions, peppers, mushrooms, garlic and cheese. Next I roll out the roll and spread some itallion dressing on the doe, add my fillings and bake.  YUM YUM and very easy.  I serve with some spaghetti sauce to dip.

your poor boyfriend! Everyone told me having my wisdom teeth out was no big deal They lied. It was awful. I cried for 2 weeks.

Wisdom teeth are not a good subject for me. They attempted to take mine out a while ago. They were yanking the first one out when, golly-gee the anesthesia wares off, my heart rate shoots up to 115, I have a panic attack, and they have to stop. Stupid oral surgeon, yelling all kinds of obscenities at me because I'm having a panic attack. And they had the nerve to charge me half, and stupid insurance refuses to pay their portion because no teeth were actually removed! GRRR.  >:( Very frustrating situation!

Anyway back on subject. Tonight was simple rosemary chicken & red potatoes. Cut up some potatoes into wedges and toss them w/ chicken tenders, olive oil, rosemary, garlic, crushed red pepper, salt & pepper. Pop it in the oven for 30-40 minutes and it's ready to eat. I do wish I had made some type of side though. I just couldn't think what would go well but wouldn't take too much work.

I totally know how you feel! I attempted to get my wisdom teeth out but the laughing gas didn't take and when I heard the nurses chair move towards me to put the iv in, i had a panic attack and cried my eyes out for 3 hours straight. it probably wouldn't have been so bad but the horrid doctor kept yelling at me and calling me a baby and my boyfriend was just standing in the corner watching. not good.

back on topic, your dinner sounds soo good! super easy too

mmm i've been craving tilapia for weeks.

mom's napping, and probably going to be doing so for the rest of the night, and i don't know of pop is coming by or not, so cooking dinner seems like a pointless idea at the moment lol. so i'll probably have some leftover chinese, and some snyder's pretzels. the jalepeno kind. i've been eating a handful of those every time i pass by the kitchen. i'm getting heartburn but they're SO GOOD! i can't stop eating them.

and Scallops Provencal

Tonight I will probably make Spameroni...What, exactly, is Spameroni, you may ask?

Basically it's mac and cheese, with cubed, fried chunks of Spam thrown in, and a little asparagus to make it interesting...

Low carbing and using low carb noodles.  YAY!

But then again, if I'm too lazy to make that, my hubby will be making bunless chili dogs.  YAY!

Oh, that sounds so good. Do you have a recipe? My mom loves scones.

We tweak a recipe from a kids' cookbook published by the American Heart Association about a decade ago...not very fancy or official, but good :D

1 3/4 cups AP flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Mix together dry ingredients. 
Melt butter, blend in wet ingredients (you could also add some orange zest and/or some dried fruit at this point). 
Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir till it gathers into a ball (it's quite humid around here, so we often have to add in a bit more flour to compensate...it should form into a ball but still be a fairly wet dough, unless you enjoy those really dry and rock-like scones they serve in American coffeehouses).
Knead dough, lightly, on a floured surface.
Place dough on an ungreased baking sheet, pat into an eight inch circle, and sprinkle the top with sugar.
Cut onto eight wedges, separate them slightly, and bake for 15 minutes or until they're a light golden brown.

And this (http://whatscookingamerica.net/DevonshireCream.htm) is the recipe we used for mock Devonshire cream...far from authentic, but tasty and a heck of a lot cheaper and easier to come by here in Southeastern NC.

i like mashed potatoes when i'm sick...but alas, there's none..tater soup's just as good  :)

**edit**

ok, i found some mashed taters. when i got up from my nap, mom wasn't even here, and i'm not cooking a pot of soup if there's not even going to be anyone around to eat it...that happens WAY too often around here. i hate being asked to cook and then no one bothers to show up >:(

Spaghetti and meatballs. 

My thrifty recipe is a can of store bought sauce, can of stewed tomatoes, and a can of tomato paste.  I mix a pound of ground meat, an egg, spices, and enough rolled oats to soak up the moisture.  When the sauce is simmering I drop small balls of meat into the sauce and simmer for about 40 minutes.  Meanwhile the noodles cook. 

:) Easy Cheap and Yummy!

Freezer Cooking Hint:  I usually double the recipe and freeze the leftovers.  Buy the cheapest brand of freezer snap-lock bags, not the ones with the zipper slide--they don't seal as well.  And the extra money for thicker plastic bags are worth the expense.  I use a sheet pan in the freezer and lay the food flat.  When it is frozen I can set them upright and flip through them like a card catalog.  Also, they defrost quicker being flat.

lady cyanide no longer has a lord cyanide. (hence the avatar change.)

so i'm having a beer, and hopefully i'll be having some sushi later.


**edit**
it's later, and still no sushi.

i ate some italian wedding soup, then remembered the italian wedding that we won't be having.

i really want some sushi.

lady cyanide, if sushi is not available, chocolate ice cream and beer is a good substitute. and pizza.

I had breaded tilapia, brown and wild rice and steamed veggies. It's the first night I have cooked in several.... i need to be better about that.

pops suprised us with dinner tonight. mom left some steaks to defrost while we were out shopping..we come home to find fettucini noodles covered in velveta, with the steaks and spicy sausage mixed in it. not comfort food, but still really good.

One of my favorite sandwiches:

Salami, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, banana peppers, pickles, and Italian spices, grilled until it's crispy and melty in the George Foreman.

grilled cheese...the boy's favorite. but he'd usually eat 3.

so...the only benefits i've found of his absence is less grilled cheese to make and more dresser space.


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: lady_cyanide on September 12, 2007 04:59:51 PM
mom's bringing chinese later..because dinner should not have to consist only of one grilled cheese lol.

We finally had a home cooked meal tonight courtesy of the hubby. It was the first in probably a week and a half. He made Sweet & Sour chicken w/ rice. Well I made the rice because his always turns out bad. And yummy brownie cupcakes in the oven right now.  ;D

Tonight was going to be chicken soft tacos, but ended up being breaded chicken sandwiches (due to a dwindling supply of non-breaded chicken). Yesterday was beef stroganoff over boiled potatoes with broccoli, and tomorrow's lunch is quite likely to be chicken stew (with the chicken I started to cook to make tacos before I realized there was no way it would feed everybody).  :)

tonight were having grilled steak with smashed garlic potatoes, probably witha a salad and some steamed broccoli.. i dont think i'll eat the potatoes, though, so i'll probably make up some kind of salad out of everything else.  :D

I just hijacked my daughter's craftster name-I'm Balkandina! We had Italian beef.It's made with cut up chuck, floured and browned in oil, then put in the slow cooker with my homemade tomato sauce-made from tomatoes,peppers,basil and oregano from the garden and some garlic (I'll grow that next year :) ). Then it was served over brown rice and we had green beans(garden fresh!) cooked in a little olive oil and a dash of sesame oil. All served outside under the squash arbor. Yum!
Tonight is going to be something grilled.

It may be the last Sunday we can cook out, so there's a porterhouse waiting in the fridge.  We'll have oven fries with it and a tomato/basil/mozz salad with the tail end Charlies still stubbornly lingering in the garden.

Probably the least-effort meal there is.

We're all sick, too. Everyone wants bagels and orange juice to help clear the gunk out of throats (sorry if that's TMI).  :)   Anyway, we went to my mom's to celebrate a birthday (not mine) this evening, and had roast beef, redskin potatoes, green beans, and of course, cake.  :)

Tonight:
Indian-spiced fingerling potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and onions over brown rice with a dill yogurt sauce.

Tomorrow night (I made ahead):
Yellow pepper and black bean chili. We plan to make cornbread to go with it.

There will be homemade brownies and a little leftover pear gingerbread for dessert for several more days. ;)

~soba (noodles). pretty delicious, but a tad bit undercooked so they were too hard. but i didn't notice until mum told me, so i was fine.
~strawberry/blackberry/banana smoothie thing. 'twas vanilla ice cream, milk, ice cubes, dulce de leche, blackberries, strawberries, and two bananas. fruity and refreshing (even though it's a horridly cold santa ana night.)

Chicken Parmesan over spaghetti with broccoli (though I confess there's no parmesan in my current recipe. It's a chicken breast with no breading in marinara sauce, with mozzarella).  I've thought about renaming it, but it's known as Chicken Parmesan, so I'd just have to explain what I meant.  :)  And I have the hiccups.  :(

Tonight I am having left over onion soup that I made vegetarian style; I used vegetable broth instead of beef. It's pretty good and I've made it before. Just need to remember to make half the recipe and not the full amount since it makes so much.  :P It kind of almost tastes like holiday stuffing from the turkey. LOL!

my internet's been down for the past few days. my dear friend barbara is a delightful cook, i always brag about her cooking to my mom. barb came over friday night, my mom said "so..i hear you can cook! i've got a freezer full of meats, make whatever you want, i'll eat anything." so together, we cleaned the entire kitchen, and prepared a feast of lemon pepper chicken, greenbeans, white cheddar shells, and a salad with the remaining chicken..and an almond joy no bake cake thingy for dessert  :)

my mom now insists that barb must come back and cook at least twice a month. i've been consuming the leftovers for the past few nights..just finished them last night.

tonight's dinner will probably be raising canes. which is awesome..but nowhere near as awesome as barb's chicken.

chicken cordon bleu (chicken rolled with ham and swiss cheese, and dipped in breadcrumbs). And yes, that's the way it's supposed to be spelled.  :)

On a side note, DD and I had a discussion Monday where we couldn't remember what we'd had for dinner on Saturday night. After thinking about it for about 5 minutes, and having no clue, I said, "well, I'll just look on craftster when we get home."  ;D   Incidentally, I did remember a minute or so before I got home, but it's nice to have a little mental insurance.  :)

breakfast for dinner (and last night was chicken parmesan again).  I think I've been doing this long enough that you all have seen the entire list of things I usually make for dinner.  Every now and then I try a new recipe, but there's a list of "old standards" that gets repeated no matter how hard I try to inject new possibilities (very rarely, a new recipe makes it into the old standard list. Very VERY rarely).  :-\

Thanks!  It actually didn't come out as well as I had hoped.  I just threw a bunch of stuff in the crockpot because we were planning to be out all afternoon, looking at some puppies.  About halfway to the breeders house we got a call that she had sold the last one already. :-\  So anyways, no puppy and mediocre soup. :(

But on the bright side, tonight we're making chicken taquitos and a salad on the side.

Sounds delicious!

Last night, I tried a hot and sour soup recipe for DH, and the rest of us had chicken nuggets, french fries, celery and oranges (the kids were a lot more interested in the celery and oranges than the other stuff. Thank you Wonderpets!  Though as a parent, you feel kind of silly telling your kids they have to finish their french fries before they can have oranges.)

Homemade macaroni and cheese.  My previous attempt was better (different cheese).  My mom's always turns out much creamier than mine. My cheese sauce ends up tasting more starchy instead of creamy and cheesy.  Any tips?


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: cinnamon teal on November 17, 2007 12:31:21 AM
The way that I do mac and cheese is pretty easy, but maybe not what your looking for?  After I boil the pasta, I put some white wine (1/4 cup?) and a little butter in the empty pot and heat it up.  After the alcohol boils off I add a bit of cream, heat it for a few minutes and then put the pasta back into the pot and add a bunch of shredded cheese.  I stir it till the cheese melts and coats everything.  It comes out really creamy.  Some times I'll then put it into a casserole dish and top it with chopped tomatoes, thyme, salt, pepper and some grated parmesan and throw it in the broiler for a few minutes til the tomatoes get all hot and toasty.

Tonight we're having baked potato soup.  The potatoes are baked in the oven, plus there's cream cheese and bacon.  I've tried making it lower in fat and it just doesn't work for me.  We only eat it two or three times a year, anyway.  :)

It's been a few days since I posted (I think). Last night was beef and gravy, the night before was sausage pepper pasta (sausage, onions and green peppers in marinara sauce) for DH, and homemade chicken soup for the rest of us (he plays basketball in the evening sometimes, so when he does, we make what we want, and I make something else for him later).  Today is my 5 hour rotisserie-tasting chicken recipe (recipe tweaked from an online recipe I found once, called "roast sticky chicken" then redubbed, "Mr. Chicken" as I was narrating the recipe to my 4 year old daughter when I first made it). I made it with cauliflower, rice, and biscuits.

Last night was cheesy crock pot chicken.  Just chicken, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cream of mushroom soup, and shreded cheddar added after cooking.  Super easy, and my husband says it was "fantastic."

i think it's kinda funny that there's a "what's for dinner?" thread here because on another forum i go to there's a "what did you have for breakfast?" thread.   :D

tonight we're having pizza, just like we do every Saturday night.  it's like, tradition.  we've been doing it for years.  in fact the people at the pizza place know us and our usual order.   :P

We had what I call Spaghetti Meatloaf.  I mixed up some spaghetti sauce and added a little bit of it to my meatloaf.  After it was done, I added more on the top and warmed it up.  I was pleasantly surprised.  It was really tasty.  And my finiky(?) son enjoyed it.  He even came back for seconds!

you must be in California?  Somehow, the power outages missed us - no idea how because EVERYTHING was out all the way around us.  Glad yours is back on. :)


Tonight we had chicken parmesan, angel hair and broccoli. I've been addicted to broccoli lately - I have been roasting it with this fabulous lemon oilve oil ;D

Yup, near Sac.  I'm really happy for you that you didn't get hit by the outages.  We didn't have heat or hot water and we couldn't use the stove for 2 and a half days. :(  And there's a lot of people who probably won't have power back till Wed.

I have an awful time cooking when it's just for myself (it's usually something like peanut butter and jelly instead of actual cooking).  Have you considered making stuff that nobody else liked (for me it's chicken cordon bleu, chili, and beef stew), or making multiple servings and refrigerating/freezing the leftovers so that you can have a homecooked meal even when you don't feel like cooking?  Sorry you're having a bad time of it.  Hope your inspiration comes back!

Incidentally, we had chicken scampi for dinner

My version of a baked apple:
Core a granny smith apple put in a small pyrex bowl fill hole with granola, cinnamon & raisins or dried cranberries
spray with a little butter flavored pam or I can't belive it's not butter spray
pop in microwave for 8-12 mins.     yummy.
last ngiht dinner was a greek salad from the pizza place.  great salad with lots of tomatoe wedges, olives, feta & awsome greek dressing.


tonight will prob be an egg & cheese sandwich on an english muffin.   mellon for a snack later today too.  =)

I would thing so ...
I have done it with shrimp as well as salmon. But I would think most any fish would work.  I usally season with the spices just rub them on with just a  couple drops of light oil.  let it sit a bit then bake or broil.  i like a little extra sharp chedder or pepper jack shredded fine as well as chopped lettuce & tomato. with a little sour cream. I usually do it with a few silces of avacodo too... just didn't have any in the house. A squeeze of lime also adds great flavor too.

What is your favorite way to cook fish? If I don't grill it I like to bake it this way:

I lightly oil or spray a pyrex pie plate  fill with fresh raw baby spinach, really fill the pan up because it cooks down. Spray a little more then add a bit of lemon or lime juice, sea salt & pepper.   top with fish. (I will season fish with any of the following a little oil, butter or pam spray then either some spices (lemmon pepper or salt & pepper, or dill & garlic powder)  or crush up some cheese its, or a club craker or bread crumbs. If I use the crumbs I spray a little more  or drizzle a little more oil on top, just a tiny bit.

Throw the hole thing in the oven & bake @ 350 till fish is cooked.  VERY tasty, & pretty healthy too.



I ithnk dinner tngiht is goinng to be a little green salad with an english muffin pizza. (sauce, parm cheeese, slice of provalone & shredded veggies in the toaster oven on the muffin.)

yes, I have used cod, halibut, etc and it works just fine. and as LeesaLove mentioned, definitely use a small squeeze of lime! yummy! I put tons of fresh cilantro on mine too. and I only put them on small corn tortillas. Something about flour tortillas and fish just  doesn't work, at least for me.

Let's see, last night was salad, since I had way too much Chinese food for lunch. Tonight I think will be pork tenderlion and baby arugula salad.

Last night I had more roasted sweet potatoes & a cup of my homemade chick soup from sunday.

Tonight is Ravioli& tomato sauce, garlic bread & salad.

Not how I am making them tonight but, have any of you tried baked ravioli or pierogi?
I  use a mister bottle of olive oil to spray a foil covered cookie sheet then spray both sides of the ravioli  I lay them out in one layer on the pan & sprinle with a little sea salt & fresh ground pepper.. then bake @ 350 till they pufff up & the edges are crisy & golden.   they make a nice appitizer if served with a thick tomato sauce for dipping.My brothers like them with Ranch dressing.

That sounds good. I have two packages of pierogies in the freezer I may try that with.

Kbbtfg: Did yOu mean stoEr bought or sauce you made yourseLf earlier? I find that if i am short on time & have to use store bought sauce simmering it for even juSt 20 mins & adding whatever spices i thInk are right, almost always more garlic & some parm chees make a HUGE differnece in the flavor of a sauce.
  I can simmer up 2 cans of hunts plain tomato sauce with a couple bonless pork ribs that I cubed & a little garlic, huge differnce.

CraftyChef: What is white chili? Is that using white beans & turkey?

Tonight's dinner will prob be pizza & salad, I am headed over to a freinds to watch a couple movies.

Tonight is going to be a simple one. Grilled steak, broccoli & rice. (cooked in new rice cooker/steamer)


I also found a new fav today. I can steam eggs in the steamer to hard boil them.  Pull them out peel as soon as you can while still hot. Cut in half & smoosh onto a very lightly buttered english muffin!! The yolks are creamy & yellow, no green. Very tasty with a little salt & pepper.  I could eat eggs everyday.

I can always pull a little of that out to add to other stiff. =) Man I love mac & cheese.

I think today I am going to make a sweet noodle kugel. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_35413,00.html.  Not sure what with it, prob just some baked chicken & a veggie. I'm going to to aldi today, so we'll see what's good there.

BBQ Tortilla Pizza- Take a whole wheat tortilla, spread on bbq sauce, add shredded cheddar, and turkey pepperoni, cook on a skillet until crisp/melty.  I'm a bbq sauce fiend I guess!  I like using a skillet because it uses less electricity and no bending over to open the oven. 

BTW, what are 'raising canes?'

Sauteed cabbage & onions w/noodles, s+p and a dollop of sour cream

oh good idea. I love veggies and never thought about putting them in my mac & cheese. I will do that next time. Thanks for the suggestion!

Tonight is some soup white chili (I really need to label things better, so when they thaw I'm not surprised) I had in the freezer. We are trying to eat what's in the freezer and cabinets before I go buy more food...  :)

Last night i had left over steak & mushrooms. I cut the steak into very thin strips brfire i put it in fridge. I threw them in a skillet to heat up witht the mushrooms & had it in a whole wheat pita with a fist full of baby spinach & some fresh shredded parm. Was very tasty.
No idea what tonight holds. (i think shrimp cocktail & a salad.)

Last night was chicken in barbecue sauce with beans and cornbread.  The night before that was MIL's swiss steak recipe (sliced potatoes with cream of mushroom soup and onions, with a chuck steak over the top (seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder). Bake for about 2 hours, I think.  I started with somewhat frozen meat, so it took longer.

Tonight will be some sort of ham. I doubt it will be ham and scalloped potatoes, as the pot is still holding the leftover swiss steak.  Maybe I'll try a new recipe....

Last night was hamburgers and french fries (I had to work until 8pm and two of the kids have a 9pm bedtime).  Tonight? Dunno.  I'm thinking about making shrimp for Valentine's Day, and putting them in pairs on the plate so they look like hearts, but then I might have to crochet some spaghetti to go along with it.   ;)  Except that I vaguely recall promising steak to DH.  It's kind of silly that I have next Thursday's dinner planned, but not tonight's dinner.  ::)

Oooh, oooh! I love this type of thread! (Sorry, enthusiastic newbie here!)

Tonight we had pasta fagioli and thick, crusty bread. I absentmindedly dumped waaaay too many noodles in, so it was more of a thick stew, but Hubs likes his soups better that way anyway.  ::) Baby H is learning to eat all sorts of new foods, and she loved this one. :)

Two nights ago we had toasted tomato-cheese sandwiches (open face) and Caesar salad. Last night we ate junk at the movie theater for "date night."  :-[

We had Stouffer's chicken pot pies last night - they were pretty good. I took a night off from cooking, lol

Today I am making a recipe I got from a friend:

Chicken Breast with Creamy Chive Sauce

1-2 lbs.  Boneless skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins (Depends on size of your family)
1/4 cup flour
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 large shallots (Or one medium onion)
1/2 cup white wine
1 14 oz can reduced fat chicken broth (or use bouillon with 1.5 cups water)
1/3 cup low fat sour cream
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 cup chives

1) Flatten chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap till about 1/2 inch thick. (I just bought thin chicken breasts, so I skipped this step.)
2) Dredge chicken in 1/4 cup flour coating chicken lightly.
3) Heat the 2 tsps olive oil in a large non-stick skillet (med-high heat) and add chicken. Let cook about 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet and keep warm. (I put them on a plate and covered with foil.)
4) Add the remaining tsp of olive oil to skillet over med-hi heat. Add shallots and cook stirring constantly until golden brown scraping up any brown bits. About 1 to 2 minutes.
5) Add wine and bring to a boil stirring often.
6) Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Cook at a simmer until the chicken is heated thru and no longer pink. About 6 minutes.
7) Stir in sour cream, mustard, and broth until smooth. Turn the chicken to coat with the sauce.
8) Stir in chives and serve immediately.

Serve over penne, egg noodles, or rice (whatever you prefer)
Serve with a salad or veggie - maybe asparagus so you can pour the sauce on it as well. 

I am looking forward to making this today. :)

Nana (my mother-in-law)is visiting and she's doing a pork shoulder in the crock pot with sauerkraut.  Sauerkraut is not my favorite and we had a laugh about how I came downstairs worried about the rotten garbage-y stench emanating from the kitchen only to realize... Oh yeah, "Nana's doing a German meal for us tonight!"

Nana is a terrific cook and I'm sure it will be delicious.  I'll take a very small portion of sauerkraut... ;)

Hubby and I tag teamed watching the kids so we could see No Country for Old Men individually.  He went to the 3:30 show and I went to the 6:30 show.  I thought it was totally fantastic and my husband thought the ending ruined the whole film. ???

love this thread - it's a funny little window into other people's lives...

i'm going all out and cooking for 15 people tonight - white bean, mushroom and leek casserole with tomato-caper couscous, chana masala and rice, and split pea soup with cornbread. for desert, almond cupcakes with buttercream frosting, and chocolate raspberry thumbprint cookies. and a big green salad with broccoli, sunflower seeds, carrots and dried cranberries.

everything is vegan - i'm not, but some of the guests are, so it's just easier to make everything vegan. Let me tell you, vegan buttercream frosting is AMAZING. I contemplated not making anything else and just making more cupcakes.

I posted earlier that I was making dinner for 15 people - well, 20 people ended up coming, I had just barely enough food. It was a lot of fun, but I was so busy being all hostessy that I didn't eat.

So for my dinner, I'm gonna go make a peanut butter sandwich.

Don't you hate sick food?

I once had tonsillitis and all I could swallow was warm milky/honey mint tea, even plain water hurt.  That was two winters ago and I still haven't had a craving for a good cup of tea. 

There is no harm in leaving off dinner.  In the scheme of things it is the least important meal and if you have a large late lunch you are perfectly fine skipping supper.


Title: Re: What's for supper?

Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: LeesaLove on March 28, 2008 06:01:34 AM
I haven't posted here much...  been having far to much take out...workng two jobs leaves little time for cooking & putting any creativity  into preparing my meals.

Last night the Red Cross was doing a pulled pork dinner. (Pulled pork sandwich on  a nice big homemade roll, side of beans, side of bbq sauce & a pickel.)   had one of those last nght for dnner. I bought a second on that I mixed the meat, beans & bbq sauce plus the extra sauce from the first one then a add the last few tablespoons of fire roasted corn I had in the freezer.  froze this. I think it will be good with some garlic toast, I'll prob get two dinner size servngs out of it too.

some other slighly creative lefovers I've had recently:

I had raviol & meat balls for diner (take out)  the next day I made garlic toast for lunch & spread the sauce that was left from dinner on the toast with a little cheese & broiled that. was pretty tasy. Had that with a green salad.

had egg drop soup & garlic green beans (chineese take out)  next day made scrammbled egss wih a ton of the green beans.  chopped them to abt 1/2 inch long.  That was really good.   
 Also with the green beans  added them to some chicken stock & chicken breast I had in freezer. Also added chopped fresh baby carrots & some frozen peas. Made some tasty soup.

had a take out Chiken Slouvaki (spelling?) dinner. Left over with some babyu spinach from a sack made a great roll up sandwch on spinach tortilla for lunch. I packed stuff seperate then when it was tme to eat  spread a lttle tazikki (the yougurt dip) on spinich wrap  added chopped chcken (slouvak) and fresh baby spiancah.   I could eat tazikk eveyday  have to get that recipie. When ever I get greek I also get an extra order of the sauce to have with raw veggies the net day for lunch.

I baked some chicken breast with a few packets of Arbys sauce ( I lov ehtat stuff, it's like crack... i'm sure t's full of checmiclas  but it s tasty!)   shredded that & had it over salad a couple times.




Found a recipe for Tzatziki:

turkey and stuffing and stuff.  
        My Mouth watered when I read that.

Last night  I had a huge salad with baby spinach & romaine chopped pecans, slivered almonds, dried canberries, chopped granny smith apple, & chicken breast.
homemade dressing: pomagrante juice, balsamic vinigar, sea salt & pepper.
TASTY!!

today I bought a piece of dough at the local pizza place & a scoop of ricotta ($2 for them) I am going to make a calzone at home.  i mix the ricotta with about 2 tabledsoons of cottage cheese, some dried oragano, parsely & basil, then let it drain in a sieve for a while.  I flatten dough fill half with the cheese & chopped hot peppers, chopped green pepper & sauted potabello mushrooms, fold over dough & seal & bake in oven on a baking time, it's like a brick but a big flat tile. (I pre heat the oven just below broil for abt 20 mins first.)

leftover shrimpcakes! mom made the batter with chopped green onions and tiny dried shrimp added to what looked like regular pancake batter. then she abandoned me to go watch the view (apparently obama is related to brad pitt), so i got to do the fun part of cooking them. they're cooked just like pancakes and they're freaking good, if just a little bit weird because you have all the tiny little eyes looking out at you. otherwise, they're kind of like crabcakes.

served with peppermint tea and a dip made from soy sauce, calamansi, and patis.

i do love filipino food.

Been dining out of my freezer last several nights. Atleast it's stuff I've made!!

I did make a cockpot of chicken stuff... er Stew?   one bag of frozen skinless chicken breast 1 can cream of chicken soup,  1 can chicken broth,  minced roasted garlic (I roast abt 10 cloves at a time been adding it to everything)   let that cook away most of the day then added frozen corn, frozen peas & chopped fresh asparagus& let it cook abt another hour. It turned out really good. & I have a few contianers to ad to freezer

Been eatting alot of salad too. Romain, spinach, chopped granny smith apples or manderin oranges. peacns or smoked almonds with baby carrots.  Vinigar or Malt Vinigar with a bit of oil.  Yummo!!

Oh another new thing for me  Quaker lightly salted rice cakes. Really good with tuna or chicken salad.  I make chicken salad with grilled chicken breast, a little mayo, chopped & peeled granny smith apples & green grapes that I have sliced in half. A little salt & pepper. One of my fav foods.

I have been craving potatoe salad too... So I think potato salad & steak with bbq sauce are in the near future.

Also a lot of hard boiled eggs too.

Veggie stir fry for me last night.  And my boyfriend made a rhubard crumble for pudding, with a little help.  He is CLUELESS about cooking - when he started to make the crumble topping, the first thing he reached for was a knife and chopping board.  What was he going to do, chop the flour into the butter?!  Hehehe, anyway, it was a great crumble, I was really proud of him  :)

Later for a snack I had homemade pear geletin made with pear juice  & knox geliten.

I also made a bunch of individual geletins with pear flavored water from Aldi & Knox, added diced canned pears to that. I will have one of those with lunch.

Yesterday I also did a crockpot of veggie beef soup. It smells awesome when cooking. I gave a couple pints to my parents & couple pints to each my Gramma & Grandpa. I put a couple single serves the freezer.  The soup was lighly browned then very well draiend & blotted extra lean ground beef, baby carrots left whole, green beans snapped in half, asparagus cut in 1 1/2 inch pieces (only stems, tips seem to get slimy in soup. I will be eatting tips for lunch with lemon sauce from yesterdays chicken.), a little onion, & a can of beef broth & water. A bit of micend roasted garlic too, just a couple pinches.

Tonight off again, whoo... 2 nights in a row off from the part time job.  Going to dinner with my parents & 2 of my neices.

Last night we had a frittata with leftover asperagus, shred potatoes, ham, cheese and sausage.  Cleaned out all those random things in the fridge no one wanted to eat. I also put in some hot sauce and dijon mustard with the egg mix. That made it extra tasty. 

This was the first time I tried making a frittata.  It was a big hit.  Even the 2.5 yo who HATES eggs gobbled it up.  I'm not sure if she cleaned her plate because she liked it or because I told her it was a "Hacuna Frittata"  (Think Hacuna matata from the Lion King).  Needless to say she sung the song through the ENTIRE meal.

Tonight we are having corn, some sort of potato and boneless country ribs.

Tonight is homemade chicken noodle soup from the crock pot. There's carrots, celery chunks, onion, bunch o' spices and whatever leftover chicken was still on the bones from when we splurged and bought a rotisserie chicken on Friday.
My FH started the soup so I'm hoping it turned out  ;)

Trying to remember what I have had the last few days.

Friday I had a big green salad with jullianne deli turkey, diceed mozzarella & homemade balsamic vin. dressing.

Sat baked salmon steak over spinach with lots of lime juice. had a little rice on the side.

Sunday we had Gramps big family dinner at a local pizza place. They like us so on Sunday afternoons they let us have the dining room to ourslelves a couple times a month. (I have 5 soon to be 6 neices & nepews. 3 of which are 4 & under, so a private room in a restuarant is a huge luxury for active kiddos. We set one table up with a big strip of newprint & crayons for the kids to keep busy after they eat.)  We always order a few diff things & serve it up family style.   Sunday we had a copule platters of "naked pasta" with the following to add to it: a bowl of alfredo sauce, red sauce & meatballs, butter to melt on pasta, lots of fresh grated parmasan cheese. (the kids all like a little butter, lots of parm & a little pepper.)  Also a huge green salad with grilled chicken, tomatoe wedges, sliced mushrooms with feta or shredded mozz. & hot peppers on the side.
White pizza with feta & black olives.    .... Left over white pizza is so awesome the next day just barley warmed in the toaster oven...ummm.
We had Chocolate cake & vanilla cup cakes for desert.

Last night I went to friends we made tacos. (chicken & steak with lots of lettuce, tomato, & pepper jack cheese in soft tortillas.) I also got a big pot of chili going in the crock pot. She portioned it out in small continers this moring, we let it cook on low all night. Chili has chopped steak, & ground beef I browned wiht spices then added tomotes, more spice, onion, meat & beans into the crock pot. It smelled awesome when I left last night.

Last night I felt like a great mom when I made a dinner everyone loved: chili quiche and potato pancakes with sour cream and applesauce.

It's almost getting too warm out to cook for a long time over hot oil on the stovetop, so this may be the last time for the potato pancakes until the weather gets cold again.

MMmm.. baby spinach salad sounds yummy!


Chili Quiche is super easy:
1/4 cup butter (or margarine), melted
5 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup four
1 cup cottage cheese
1 -4 oz can diced green chiles
1 cup grated Jack cheese ( I used an unseasoned Mexican cheese blend)
Mix it all together well.  Bake in greased square baking dish or pie plate at 350 for 35 to 45 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.

Cook up some onion in a pan, add a little bit of broth(like a couple tbs) and drained can of tuna.  Break up tuna and add already cooked noodles, dried parsley, oregano, pepper and let heat through.  turn heat off and add some grated cheese- I like marble or chedder and parmesan.

Tonight I did a raid of random things in the pantry and freezer that my roommate has no plans for and otherwise would never get used. I took three chicken breasts and marinated them in a ziplock baggie with Worcestershire sauce, red cooking wine, oregano, sage and seasoned salt. I sliced it up and sauteed it up in a fry pan. Then I made mashed potatos that looked dangerously close to growing out their eyes, mixed in with sauteed rosemary, onion, garlic and topped with cheddar. Washed down the whole thing with a long neck bottle of Miller.

Thanks, Puppy_girl.  Baked mac and cheese is really good, too.  Sometimes I like to top mine with tomatoes and put it in the broiler for a couple minutes til it gets a little toasty and the tomatoes get all hot and yummy.

Tonight I'm making soup with hot italian sausage, tomatoes, carrots, sweet potato and I think I'll add some fava beans.  Not sure about the favas, though.  Has anyone made them before?  What do you do with them?

DH & I hit the salad bar @ Ruby Tuesday's.  It's the only place around here for a decent all-u-can-eat salad.  I piled on the spinach, porto mushrooms, cheese, and crunchy toppings -- yum!  Washed it down w/a Mr. Pibb.  Yum again.

I don't understand how most restaurants can, with a straight face, serve me a pile of anemic lettuce, skanky-looking croutons and a slushy tomato and expect me to like it?  WTF?  ::) >:( 

Sorry if I sound angry, but ugly restaurant salads are a HUGE pet peeve of mine!  Being a vegetarian for 20+ years, I've seen my share. *shudder*

Won ton soup with frozen won ton from The Oriental Store.  The boyfriend and I are making it up as we go along.  We roasted garlic and onions- that is now simmering in chicken broth.  In about 10 minutes I am going to add roasted chicken that was coated in Parmesan, flour, sugar and nutmeg.  About 20 minutes after that we are going to add frozen peas and carrots, and of course  - the frozen won ton.  We are debating whether or not to add chili sauce and/ or coconut milk -actually he is debating with him self because I am now checking out craftster posts.

This is one of the few ways I can get my so to eat cooked veggies. After cooking the heck out of the carrots with a bunch o butter and onion and garlic, they don't taste too much like cooked carrots!

I just learned how the other day!  They're super easy.  You pick some veggies or meats that you want in it.  I did asparagus, english peas and finely chopped spring onions.  Then you grab an oven proof skillet and fry the veggies with some oil for a few minutes.  Beat together some eggs and some cheese.  For two people I did 6 eggs and a handful of shredded cheddar.  Add some seasoning to the egg mixture (salt, pepper, basil, oregano and a little crushed red pepper in my case).  When the veggies are tender, pour the egg stuff on top.  Cook it until the bottom is set and them using a spatula, lift up the edges and let the liquidy egg stuff on top flow under to the bottom.  Once the bottom is a bit golden and the top isn't liquidy, I added some grated parmesan to the top and put it in the oven (450 degrees) for about 10 minutes until the top was golden and it was cooked all the way through.  Cut it in half, and serve.   :)

Yesterday I was able to pull together an actual meal--mini meatloaves cooked on the George Foreman grill, homemade mashed potatoes, corn, and gravy.  I probably could have found something tonight, but DS#1 asked for PBJ and oatmeal, so that's where I started from.  :D

What I've made recently:

Bow Tie pasta mixed with pesto (bought from local Italian place, they sell a 4 oz container for $2  is that an ok deal? I've never made pesto.) diced grilled chicken. I made this to take to a cook out. jst served as a cold side dish.
I saved a couple cups of it. For dinner I like to tear about a 1/3 cup raw baby spinach & mix with the pasta , toss in a warm skiliet to barley wilt spinaach.

Pasta sald with chopped bell peppers, olives, tomatoes (well seeded), cucumbers (seeded) , minced peperonioi, dice ham, diced celery, died cheese. Mixed with Italian dressing to barley coat. I like a scoop over mixed greens as a meal. (when the veggies are fresh I likde to add fresh peas, chopped asparagus, chopped beans, diced carrot.)


I've been eatting lots of yogurt mixed with fruit & cereal. I mix rice crispies, cinnamon life & grape nuts in about equal portions in a rubber maid container wiht a pour spout. I chop some frut & mix with yogurt then top with the cereal mix.

Last night I winged a salad:

1 English cucumber (chopped)
1/2 can sliced black olives
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1 bunch of romain lettuce, torn
1/2 cup small shrimps (the kind you can get in a ring), chopped
1/2 cup immitation crab meat, chopped
1/2 cup (roughly) havarti cheese, chopped (I used the kind with hot peppers in it)
honey dijon dressing to your liking

It was very good! Deffinitely my kind of 'winging', lol. Next time I might add some cashews and dried fruit (apricots and cranberries are my faves), maybe with a greek dressing?

Tonight is french fries or soup, can't decide, lol.

I had a couple partys & picnics over the weekend, so other then my basic cooking I do on tuesdays for the week I had lots of burgurs & salads over the weekend. Basic Picnic fair. =)

My dad grumbled at me when I showed up to pick them up, we all rode together to conserve some gas.  I was eatting a whole wheat tortilla stuffed with baby spianash & shredded arrot.
Dad:  "We are going to a cook out, you know where people cook OUT." (don't dads love to state the obvious??)
Me: "I kow Dad but this is veggies, you know green stuff that is crunchy...   I dont want all beef & mayo..."
Dad: grumbles ...like fred flinstone. "I don't like to  much Mayo."  ( I SWEAR he said this!!)
Me: "My pont exactly... here have a spinaach-carrot-ritto. I put a little cheese on yours." (I laugh an evil laugh), " I held the mayo though."
I thought my MOm was gonna fall over...   


Sat was a b-day party so I had really really good cake.  Also had a huge bowl of fruit salad. Had star fruit, it was kind of bland...what is it supposed ot taste like? it was  alittle hard & not very juicy, maybe it wasn't ripe.

Sunday burgers on girll. lots of grilled veggies.  I took 2 pinaapples & a bag of smart food ...that was was they asked me to bring. they grilled ht epineappe it was very good.

Mon tis was the spinach burritto day... they had really bad macaroni & potatos salad, swimming in mayo. I tihnk it was store bought, kinda gross. So I had a burger & a little bite of each sald. I brought a rice salad. Cookd rice chilled & mixed wiuth chopped red & green pepper & italina dressing.

today while working at home i made 3 big crock pots of food to divide up, share & freeze.
Beef stew, chicken chilli & veggie stew.   


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: rottenlittleboys on May 28, 2008 04:44:58 AM
Leesalove, I hate much mayo either. Yuch. :P

Last night was a carrot, broccoli mix, kielbasas, kiwi and some of the best brown rice I have made in months simply by reducing the amount of called for water.

Tonight will be lentil soup with kielbasas, greens, left over cherry tomatoes and cornbread.


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: LeesaLove on May 29, 2008 11:17:27 AM
rottenlittleboys: as much as I'm not fond of lots of mayo & most mayo based salads I LOVE a good potato salad with mayo & mustard, esp with  alittle drizzle of BBW sauce on the top.
Also I LOVE tartar sauce, very good to dip french fries in tartar. yumm..

Last night I had my beef stew.  Basic Beef stew:  On Tues when I work form home i cook a few differnt things...

What I call Basic beef stew. Beef stew meat , onions & carrots. very lightly coat stew meat in flour, garlic powder, a pinch of salt & a pinch of pepper.  brown beef then add to crock pot with the other ingredients with some roasted garlic & sea salt & pepper. add water to barley cover. I usually add 1 can of beef broth or 1 packet of beef or mushroom ramen seasoning. I genrelaly make a pretty big pot, like 2 pounds of beef.   Let it cook then cook on high with lid off to thickn sauce a bit. THen take about a cup of liquid out, thicken in a saucepan wiht a little flour sloly add it back to cock pot. I like the gravy to be thinner not too thick. I had some of hte stew, I heated it in mircrowave with a handfull of frozen corn & a few brocoli florets.  pretty tasty.

Last night I made homemade chicken nuggets that were dipped in carrot puree before they were dipped in breadcrumbs.  My kids are terrible about eating vegetables, so I've decided to start sneaking them in.  I had some green beans that needed to be used up, so I cleaned them, fried them with garlic, made a sweet and sour sauce and ate them with stir fry vegetables, cut up chicken nuggets, and pineapple.  Mmmm.  Too bad we're out of stuff for that tonight.  :(

For tonight I don't know.  I just spent an hour cleaning the kitchen so I really don't want to cook right now and mess it up.  We have two pounds of ground turkey to use and DH suggested hamburgers, but he wants them on the George Foreman grill and I really don't want that mess.  We also have two tomatoes that need to be used before they go bad.

We got married not even 2 weeks ago so we've been in high demand in other people's homes to talk about the honeymoon. So, last night we met DH's aunt and cousins in a bar downtown, tonight is wedding food at a good friends wedding. To be fair, I did grill steak and make ramen noodle salad the day after we got home from our trip. We're also planning on chicken tacos at some point.

Last night I took some roasted chicken breasts, chopped them up, and sort of fried/heated them up with a can of mixed veggies (carrots, peas, potatoes and green beans), a can of mushrooms, some black olives, some parika, black pepper and a load of teriaki sauce, served with scrambled eggs. Very good!

we've been having a rough few days over at casa cinnamonteal.  I've been sick all week, the puppy is teething like crazy and hubbers broke his foot on Friday (moral of the story, don't talk on your cell while riding your bike - even if you're reporting a crazy man threatening you on the bike path).  So needless to say, we've been eating pretty simple things the last few days.  Friday I made spaghetti and meat sauce, Saturday we had pizza delivered, Sunday was veggie stirfry and right now I have some chili going in the crockpot.

Oh my, three nights to describe.

Friday was Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, greens beans and pears.
Saturday was handmade pizza and salad and chips and salsa.
Today for lunch, we had a roast venison, smothered in onions and carrots, salad with dried cranberries and roasted corn on the cob.
Tonight's dinner is sweet spring lentil soup made of lentils, carrots, green beans and summer squash in a veggie broth with corn bread. Latter, if we feel up to it, ice cream *frozen yogurt* floats with cherries.

Yum, this has been a wonderful weekend.

Mmmm.... Sonic. Now I want Tater Tots.

Last night I marinated chicken breasts in a vidalia onion vinegrette I got from Costco. Then I put them in a baking dish and topped them with sliced vidalia onions, sliced roma tomatos, and slices of sharp white cheddar. Then I sprinkled on a little garlic salt and some crispy fried onions. Covered the baking dish in tinfoil, 4 breasts baked at 350 for about 30-35 minutes.

Sounds a little oniony:) But it doesn't taste overwhelmingly that way.

Poulet en croute...or my version of it, that s.  I made chicken, and a french sausage stuffing, and wrapped pieces of chicken and the stuffing in puff pastry, and baked.  I used to pan juices to make sauce, and then make pommes anna (potatoes in clarified butter, sliced and sort of molded) to go with it.  Both were inspired by Julia Child recipes, I didn't have everything to make them exactly the same.  I also made corn and green salad.

Last night we had a chuck roast cooked in the crock pot with a packet of onion soup mix. I put it on before I left for work and by the time I got home, it was done. God bless the creator of the crock pot!

MMMM, it smelled so good we didn't even want to wait for it to finish cooking.  We did and man its great. I put it on bread since I did not feel like making home made mashed potatoes.  Kiddo is loving it, I had to make sure he left some for Dad.

Holy $#$#, my hubby came up with this brilliant marinade consisting only of jarred roasted red peppers, fresh garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper that we slathered on pork chops and let them maaarrrinaade overnight.  We had those tonight with some mashed taters and green beans and man oh man, they turned out great.  Leftover brownies from last night too!  Good way to end a long Monday workday.

Tonight I made my first ever pork chops! I covered them in Parmesan cheese and seasoned bread crumbs and then fried them (yeah, not the healthiest thing to make, but you know...) then we had one of those pasta sides that comes in a bag. I had great northern beans too, but they were left over from the chicken I made Tuesday.

Homemade pizza tonight!  Woo Hoo!  I'm doing a whole wheat crust with pesto for the sauce and mozzarella and sliced tomatoes on top.  I'm doing everything from scratch - made the pesto this afternoon (so ridiculously easy, I don't know why I ever bought it premade) and the crust dough is rising right now.  I can't wait to eat it!

ps. last night we decided against tacos and made dijon chicken and rice with garlic, red pepper zucchini.

Leftovers! I have leftover oven french toast and enchiladas by the dozen from entertaining this week that need to be eaten. It doesn't help that we've been traveling for the last two days and eating out every meal. No desire to cook at all.
I did go to some AMAZING grocery stores while on vacation... I know what you are thinking: You go grocery shopping while on vacation? Yup! The stores were awesome. One where you can drink a glass of wine while shopping, another with all organic etc. We don't have fancy stores where we're from.

Yep, I have done this many a time. My husband found the most awesome hand made sausages that ranged from traditional to stuffed with sage, one with apples and maple syrup and one with dried tomatoes, basil and bits of cheese. It was like eating pizza! We have also found an awesome vineyard in Eastern Pennsylvania called Cherry Valley Vineyards. If you ever get over there, look for them!

Tonight? Shrimp, coleslaw, corn on the cob and I am not certain what else.

Summer soup and biscuits with popcorn for latter.

Has anyone else ever heard of this recipe? I think it came about by someone looking for ways to use up excess produce from the garden.


Summer Soup

Two cans or four cups of cooked black eyed peas.
1 zucchini, chopped
2 small tomatoes, chopped
1-2 cups of corn kernels
1 TBLS thyme
1 tsp of salt

Combine ingredients, cook on medium high for about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

I made a few changes like adding less broccoli and some freshly shredded carrot in it's place. I will use cheddar, munster, and a morel and leek jack that I found at the store.
It looked delicious before it was even heated up so I can't wait to get home from work and smell the real thing!

It was so blasted hot yesterday that we 1) turned the air on and 2) didn't want to eat anything. My rather practical stomach told me that I'd wake up at 2am with intense cravings for something and I'm not usually aware enough at 2am to cook.

So we cut up a little log of summer sausage, cheddar and leek and morel jack, that we had with saltines and wheat thins and I made hummus (which we ate with wheat thins and carrots). It was fun and reminiscent of the Sunday night dinners my mom used to pull together when we were kids so we could eat in front of the tv and watch the ABC family movie of the week. It was really nice because the most prep we had to do was use the food pro to make the hummus and cut the meat and cheese.

We just got Cutco knives on Monday so cutting things is still a novelty! I love those knives!

Tonight IF I get out of work on time I am taking my Gram to my fav Indian resturant. =)  I LOVE indian food. I never had it until I was well into my 20's ... She has never had Indian, she is a great cook, I've leanred alot form her. Her Grand parents were born in Spain & moved to MExico when they were married.

CINNAMON TEAL:  What did you serve with your rissoto?/  


We had a simple risotto made with onion, garlic, broth, wine, cream and parmesan.  We just had some sautéed summer squash and green beans on the side.  I was pretty happy with it over all and the heavy, creaminess of the risotto was balanced by the light, slightly bitter flavor of the veggies.

Thanks for the recipe, btw!  I love the idea of making risotto in the crock pot.

My husband's government stimulus check came in the mail too so that meant that we could get Chinese takeout! I had egg drop soup and chicken and broccoli with white rice and he had sesame chicken and crab rangoon. Yum! AND I get leftovers.

pinsNneedles thank you for sharing the Coconut Salmon recipe. I've had coconut shrimp, so I bet the salmon was tasty!! I would like to try with chicken pices too.

Kaissa I pretty much keep the vin & sour cream in fridge have it all the time. I LOVE it, i could eat it with a spoon. I made it today with Malt Vin, haven;t had it that way in a while.
I love enchillats, I still can't get my sauce quite the same as Grams, but it pretty darn good. I like shredded chicken & cheese in mine.  I ususally stack the stufff & make encillata pies, easy to make a ahead & reheat to cut a slice.

I try to not have cookies for diner, but every once in a while oyu have to say what the F... & have cookies & diet soda.

I had a big lunch so prob just fruit for dinner. &  jello later. I have pineapple sparkling water geliten with chopped canned pears & frozen cheeries in fridge now.

Last night was a bbq - we had grilled marinated chicken, tabbouleh and grilled aubergine and courgette (eggplant and zucchini to many people, though I'm English  :)).  I've not made tabbouleh before; loved it and will definitely be making it again.

Tonight was a super-quick veggie stir-fry with noodles.  Mmmm, noodles... :D

Last night was hamburgers that I didn't have to cook! Yay!
Tonight will be baked oatmeal with fresh blueberries and grapes and possibly bacon. Normally Tuesday is crockpot day but since the oatmeal needs to sit "overnight" I figured that worked just as well. It'll sit for up to 10 hours... that's long enough.

I have been trying to cook oatmeal in a crock pot for years. It always burns. How do you cook it without that happening? Do you use only steel cut oatmeal?

Thanks.

Actually tonight I had 5 of the Morning Star Farms bufflow wings with Blue Cheese dressing and some watermelon. The other night was my husbands and I's 1st wedding anniversary and I made his fav. Shrimp Alfredo. It was very easy to make, so easy my husband has made it for me. This time I took it one step ahead and made my own homemade alfredo sauce. NOT LOW FAT! LOL... but FULL of goodness

Here's how

TC's ummm good Shrimp (recipe is from my husband's friend TC)- marinate in 1 Amber Bock (or other fav. dark beer) for 1hr. Remove and lay out on cookie sheet or butcher paper or whatever you have, just so long as they are separated and flat. Then sprinkle with Emeril's Bayou Blast (or other fav. creole seasoning) and allow to set in fridge for another hour. After that toss all shrimp in a frying pan with approx. a tablespoon of butter. Cook for approx. 5mins until shrimp turn white. The shrimp are great alone like this or you can now add them to the alfredo sauce.

Alfredo Sauce- Adjust measurments as needed, they are really only "Suggestions" anyways. LOL. Whatever you do, don't heat above Med. or higher heat. Cook on LOW! Melt 1/2 cup butter in sauce pan over LOW. Then add in 2 cloves of crushed garlic cloves, 2 cups of heavy cream, 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper, and simmer. Be sure to stir constantly and cook until it "thickens" (mine never did really "thicken" and I also added some salt and a lot of black pepper to taste). Next add in 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (not the process imitation stuff, like the REAL cheese) and simmer for 10mins. Then add in 3/4 cup of Mozerella cheese and stir until melted well (approx. 10mins.) It sounds intensive but it is really easy and quick and sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than the sauce from the jars.

Now just boil your noodles and you have din din..... ummm good!

Sunday: we all went out for dinner. I had a slice of pizza & grilled chicken salad with incredible homemade greek dressing.
Monday: I marrinated chicken in the rest of the dressing (brought abt half the salad home & asked for an extra side of dressing lol   tasty stuff!! ) from Sunday cooked that in a skellet with some green & yellow string beans. had concord grape home made jello for dessert.

Today: is my crock pot day. Making stewed tomatoes (from http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/search/label/vegetarian ).    UPDATE: Tomtoes were incredible, I used less butter than called for, I greased crock with butter then used 2 pats butter in crock. . I  could have eaten MUCH more than I did, I doubled the recipe. SO GOOD!!  I also added basil, & a bit of minced garlic. I used juice fofrm tomatoe cans to cook long grain rice. Had the tomatoes, & the oninions from stew over rice... a BIG bowl.

In other half of my divided crock pot making beef stew, very basic: stew meat, a bottle of beer, a couple whole onions, (don't like to freeze them, weird texture, leave whole so I can fish out) lots of baby carrots. I will take lid off to thicken gravy towards the end. I'll freeze up in smaller contaners.  then as I eat it I'll more veggies in each serving.  UPDATE:[/b] The rgravy (er...beer) wasn;t thickening at all....I should say I did drege meat in flour, salt & pepper & quickly brown in skillet before adding to crock pot. I scooped out abt 4 oz of the juices, gravy & shook that with pepper, & 2 table spoonsflour. then slowly stirred it back into crock pot. That did the trick to thicken it up a bit. I used one bottle of Sarnac Wheat Beer. Made for tasty gravy!!

In my smaller crock pot I have 11 granny smith apples chopped, a couple pats of butter, lots of cinnamon, a handfull of dried cherries &  a handfull of peacans.  I will keep that in fridge to heat up & eat for breakfast  or eat cold as a snack. I find just 2 or 3 pats of butter (it's a 6 qt crock)  is enough  to give it what it needs... with ot adding a ton of fat.  this is my first tiem making with out brown sugar.... we will see how that goes, I usually add just a couple tablespoons, but teyinh with out it this time.   UPDATE: Way to full to try apples, will have some tomorrow for breakfast.

So dinner tonight will be stewed tomatoes over steamed rice & chicken from mon.

LeesaLove, today ended up being really different from a normal Tuesday thus no crockpot. I was really missing it when I walked in the door to an empty house and no dinner.

My DH got called to leave town for a last minute business trip so I made chili/cream cheese chip dip and vegged out on the (new) couch while watching the Olympics. Life isn't too bad without him around!

It's sausage meat rolled up in puff pastry, brushed with beaten egg, then baked.  Maybe it's a british thing...?

...

Just for you LeesaLove, I've taken a pic of one of my sausage rolls!  It's cold so it looks a bit wrinkly.  They're best when they're fresh out the oven.



Tonight's meal was much healthier than this!  We had grilled salmon that had been marinated in herbs, lemon on butter.  Served with cous cous, runner beans and tomato salad.

Every once in a while my best friends daughter will "cook dinner"f or us. She will make that chilli dip in a pyrex pie plate in microwave.  And we wil have it for dinner. We justify it because we use celery & baby carrots to scoop copious amounts of chili/creamcheese/chedder mix inot our faces. Hey we are eating it with celery so it must be ok.  lol  ;D

JLoveG   & RottenLittleBoys : what do you put in your meatball soup & Taco soup?

Last night I had more roasted green beans & a couple pieces of stew meat.  Then latewr at a freinds house we had peaches & vanilla ice cream.

I tihnk tonight will be sweet potoao fries & a slice of grilled ham. prob more green beans too.

Post by: rottenlittleboys on August 14, 2008 10:00:03 AM
LessaLove, it is a very simple recipe.

I use regular, browned hamburger, even though the recipe calls for meatballs, I prefer the other way.

So, ingredients are:
Hamburger
2-4 potatoes *depending on size
3-4 carrots
1 onion
1-2 stalks celery
Beef broth
Tomato paste
Basil, about 1 teaspoon
Oil for sauteing


Chop the onion and celery into small bits. Chop potatoes and carrots into small, inch size pieces. You can leave the potato pieces slightly larger than the carrot as they cook quicker.

Saute the onions and celery until they are glistening. Brown hamburger in onion and celery mix, drain off fat; return to pot.

Add potatoes, carrots, beef broth, tomato paste and basil. Top off with hot water to cover, stir to mix tomato paste into liquid, turn to medium, cover and let cook.  Do keep an eye on this the first time you make it as it cooks quite quickly for such a flavorful soup.

I can get this knocked out in about 45 minutes at most from pulling the potatoes and onions out of the pantry to setting down to eat. We eat this with a quick cornbread too.

Rottenlittleboys that soup sounds gread, think I will make a batch of that next week.   =)

Last night was 'use up everything in the fridge before going shopping again' night.  Anyone else have those?

So we had curry with rice and naan, using up a random leftover red onion, some tofu and a bit of curry sauce from the Indian restaurant the night before.  Made some naan bread using some leftover dough from pizza a few days ago.  Then made up some fresh rice, with added mint from the garden.

Also in the spirit of not wasting food, I've just pickled a glut of courgettes from our veg patch.  Never pickled anything before - and I got the idea from some fellow Craftsters - so it's very exciting  :D

Last night was pasta e fagioli, made partial leftover October beans we had Sunday and a heavy grain bread.

Tonight was Tusscon potato soup.
1 pound cooked sausage
4 large red potatoes, cubed
half one onion, chopped
1 small handfull of chard, kale or spinach, washed
veggie broth
1 cup of milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Saute onion, cook sausage in onions. (mine did not need to be drained, judge for yourself).
Once sausage is cooked add potatoes, broth and water to cover the sausage and potatoes by about 1 1/2 inches. Cook for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.

Add cornstarch to milk, whisking thoroughly to beat out any lumps. Carefully stir into boiling pot. Cover and leave 5 minutes.

Shred the greens, add to soup, turn down to medium high. Recover, leave for five minutes.

Bellisimo!

Also in the spirit of not wasting food, I've just pickled a glut of courgettes from our veg patch.  Never pickled anything before - and I got the idea from some fellow Craftsters - so it's very exciting  :D

We call those something different in the US. The green ones are zucchini and the yellow ones are squash to us. Which one do you have? And may I say, either way, I am jealous. ;P

Green - zucchini.  We've just given away another pile of courgettes to our neighbours - we just can't get through them fast enough, and we have enough pickled courgette/zucchini to last all winter!

cabbage leaves, boiled till tender, rolled and wrapped around a stuffing of pork, onions, rice and seasoning, then boiled in veg stock until done, served with a simple tomato sauce

yesterday I was feeling lazy, so instead of making chili, I made soba salad with broiled tofu and were having chili tonight instead.

btw, the watermelon sorbet came out like a slushy, watermelon daiquiri.  Hubby liked it.  I don't like watermelon, so I didn't.  For some reason I convinced myself that I would. ::)

Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: pinsNneedles on August 28, 2008 10:12:17 AM
Last night was a simple pasta bake made complicated by using 4 different types of pasta (including tricolor, so it looked lovely), tuna, olives, courgette (zucchini), pine nuts and sun dried tomatoes.  And plenty of cheddar and parmesan on top.  I seem incapable of cooking anything normal these days - I always get carried away and add loads more ingredients than it really needs.    ::)

Because I added so many 'extras' and didn't reduce the amount of pasta, I ended up with a HUGE pasta bake.  So tonight will be leftovers.

Tonight was a random experiement using up leftovers from the fridge.  I created tomato and aubergine/eggplant lasagne.

Basically just layered sliced tomato and aubergine with lasagne sheets and a herby tomato-y sauce.  Topped it all with a little tub of creme fraiche and lots of cheese.  Baked it for about half an hour.  There was quite a bit of liquid in the bottom of the pan at the end, but the lasagne held it's shape and was very tasty.

Won't be rushing to make it again, but definitely a good way of using up the last bits in the fridge.

Dump Chicken! I am a proud owner of a Tupperware microwave veggie steamer (yay Salvation Army!) but what many people don't know is that you can cook meals in them too. You put instant, salt, and water in the bottom, and small cubes of chicken and a partial bag of frozen veggies of choice. Top it off with either ranch or italian dressing and microwave until the chicken cooks. Soooo good! Even my rather picky husband ate it and enjoyed it.

Since I am still recovering from a surgery and just went back to work if I am up to cooking tomorrow night I will try to cook corn and pepper orzo, it is from the taste of home healthy cooking magazine I received last week. It has orzo pasta, red pepper, corn, italian seasoning, salt, pepper, olive oil, and onion. I thought it sounded good at least it looks good in the picture.


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: pinsNneedles on September 09, 2008 06:17:06 AM
what is chicken mushroom casserole?? sounds yum cuz i love chicken and mushrooms

Fry some onions, mushrooms and garlic, then put them into the slow cooker (crockpot).  Fry some chicken portions, I used thighs, then place them on top of the veggies in the slow cooker.  Pour in enough chicken stock to cover everything, then cook on medium for about 6 hours.  I also added cornflour and simmered it on high for an hour at the end, to thicken the sauce.  You end up with really tender chicken and veggies, with a rich gravy.  Lovely served with rice and salad.

Last night I didn't have anything at all for dinner, as I was poorly   :(

Not sure what we're having for dinner tonight, but it will be followed by the cheesecake I'm about to make  :)

I'm so jealous!  I've been wanting to go apple picking for like the last 2 years.  (Yeah, I should just get off my lazy butt and do it. :P)  And... I'm extra jealous that your husband did kitchen cleanup duty. 

Last night I made tofu fried rice and tonight I'm going to make some beef stew, since it's finally starting to cool down a bit.

just found this thread and wanna join in since I could use some inspiration. You folks sure do cook fancy sometimes! LOL!

But seriously, I've read some real interesting and yummy meals!

Last nite was spaghetti with a side of sweet potatoes from our CSA.

Tonite......well, it's the weekly "Free Food Choice" nite, so I'll probably have some left over brats from our cookout on Mon, hubby will probably eat left over spaghetti and dd will probably have cinnamon french toast with a side of fruit.

I love free food choice nite..helps to get rid of left overs!

Tonight will be portobello mushrooms stuffed with leeks and pesto and pine nuts.  I think.  Might change my mind halfway through though...  ::)

Last night I made for the first time breaded fried chicken (which had italian seasoning and thyme in it), vegetarian baked beans (although my husband refused to eat the beans since he doesn't like them) and skillet potatoes with garlic and herbs (it was from betty crocker, at first my husband didn't want to try it b/c of that but than he ended up really enjoying them). Everything came out good though.

tonite, I want something special cuz our new dining table came in about 15 min ago!! woot! No more squeaky, shakey, Goodwill table!

I'm thinking of meatballs, rice, sweet potatoes and squash (cooked with onions and dill seasoning). Red wine for hubby and I and Cheerwine for dd! I'm taking out the "fancy dishes" tonite!

Woodchuck is this delicious brand of apple cider ale that a friend and i came across on tap at a local bar. you can actually buy it at a lot of grocery stores and liquor stores. it's soooo good, just a really crisp and refreshing beer, and i'm really not one for beer. the flavors went really well with the chili. :)

I am new to crafster, hope you don't mind if I jump in!

I make Sunday Dinner about once a month for my family.
Today was turkey. I used Alton Brown's brine recipe.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/good-eats-roast-turkey-recipe/index.html

Brining the turkey makes it come out AMAZING!!
I made corn bread stuffing (baked in muffin tins so each serving had a great crispy top.
also mashed potatoes & homemade gravy. and a big green salad. & cranberry sauce. (the stuff from the can)
I sent each of my brothers home with a dozzen rolls, a brick of cheddar & sliced turkey for sandwichs too.

We had baked apples for dessert. I put them in to bake while we ate. I love them warm & bubbly.

If you are new to the thread, be prepared to be constantly tantalized with the wonderful things people prepare for supper!  Sometimes in my house, we just have fast food and leftovers and I don't put anything down here. 

I'm defrosting Chicken for tonight and we'll have the cheesy casserole I claimed I was going to make a few days ago and never got to.  ::)

last night we had pan fried talapia with left over side dishes from our Sat nite cook out - yellow squash with onions and dill and warmed over canned green beans (the only ones my daughter will eat!), fresh carrots and grapes. DD and I made banana bread for dessert.

Last night we went to a diner that is close by. On monday and tuesday nights they have pasta for half off.  He had penne pasta with olive oil and garlic with italian sausage. I had angel hair pasta (I always get that since you get more, and I have leftovers) with olive oil and garlic. If my husband hadn't added the sausage to his pasta (it cost extra) our bill would have only been around $8.20 for both of us but still it was a really good prize for only $10.31. Especially since it makes two meals for me and one for him.  :)

Last nite I made homemade hotpockets (croissant dough filled with chicken, broccoli/spinach and cheese). Daughter had chicken nuggets and a carrot/raisin salad. DH and I had hot pockets and sweet potato.

Tonite is Wednesday - free dinner choice nite! DD made cinnamon scrambled eggs and a side of fruit salad from a can. I had a hot pocket with a salda made from the lettuce, yellow squash and cucumber from the CSA that we participate in. DH had left over pizza and the same salad that I had.

Last night I made tandoori chicken. It didn't work very well...the yogurt marinade melted off in the oven, leaving the chicken mostly bare. It tasted okay, but you'd never know I used up a good half  cup of assorted spices in that recipe. I had olive oil garlic spaghetti with broccoli with that because we were out of rice.

Tonight, steak brushed with soy sauce and sweet potato fries.

My goodness, does that ever look DELICIOUS!!  I would never have thought of doing that!  Do you just... slice up some avocado... and throw in some slices of swiss cheese?  And cook it up as you would any grilled cheese sandwich?

I think I'm going to have to try that!!

My dad is BBQ-ing chicken.  Personally, I'm more excited about having the kitchen empty and to myself after dinner, to make some apple juice.   :P

Not really dinner but I had to share...it's Sunday morning and we had the following leftovers in the fridge: One steak, some garlic mashed potatoes, some shredded chicken and mushrooms.

I made my husband a steak, mushroom and cheese omelette, myself a chicken, mushroom and artichoke omelette, and both of us had pan-seared potato patties.
It was so good that I have now decreed all leftovers shall be Sunday morning omelettes. Even pasta. Not really.

Spaghetti made with tempeh sausage on penne. This month I'm eating only vegetarian food (I had a weeee bit too much ice cream this summer), and I hate tofu, but I tried some grilled tempeh at Whole Foods. Not bad. Good texture, not slimey, no weird aftertaste. The 8 oz block makes a ton of meat substitute and we had half of it in burritos. Now it's pasta's turn. I found the tempeh sausage recipe in Isa Chandra Moscowitz's book "Vegan With a Vengence". Her vegan cupcake book rocks too!!

I've got some butternut muffins in the oven right now and I really don't feel like doing any more cooking.  I'll probably just pull the leftover chili out of the freezer and heat that up for dinner.

sweet and sour chicken over rice. but i accidentally bought a can of crushed pineapple instead of chunks. i used it anyway, but it made more of a paste than it should have. it was decent, but chunks are definitly better than crushed. haha

I love this post. It's so much fun to read.

I am going to saute chicken breasts. I rub the chicken breasts with a garlic clove. I don't know how much flavor that transfers so I insert small pieces into little pockets I cut in the breasts. (I have a lot of garlic to get rid off). I then season them with salt, pepper, and onion powder. After they're seasoned, I drizzle them with olive oil and Worcestershire sauce and give them a good rub down with the liquids. It's a super quick way to season any cut of meat. I pour in a little bit more oil in a pan and saute them right up. With practice I am able to make them slightly crispy on the outside but tender and juicy on the inside. My husband loves them! I usually add some thing very boring like pasta or rice to go along side. But my favorite would be roasted red potatoes. We love those too but don't have them tonight.  :(

I had a bad day at work ( I teach kindergarten and run an after-school program,and sometimes it's like all the kids are feeling the full moon and have to act like animals) and I came home mad and hungry...however, it is our night to go to in-laws, and they had breakfast burritos. I don't like those. And no alcohol at their house, which would have been very welcome.

So I'm about to go eat an ungodly amount of gingerbread cake, and drink hot cider with rum until I can't feel feelings anymore. And then go to bed. Good food is such a treasure for me, and the absence of it makes me grumpy.

I haven't posted in awhile. been busy.

but basically we have been eating a meat with a side of sweet potatoes or butternut squash because I have tons!
So like I marinated chicken legs in teryaki marinade and grilled them. Cooked sweet potatoes in foil packets (butter and brown sugar added) on the grill too. Salad for me and hubby and green beans for daughter.
Last nite we had a preseasoned pork loin cooked in my slow cooker with sweet potatoes and marshmallows (seasoned with butter, little sugar and cinamon).


everyone's meals sound yummy!

tacogetti!!!

its basically a mixture between tacos and spagetti. my friends mom made it for us last year when we were roommates and it was amazing. we were hesitant at first because it sounded scary but afterwards we had second helpings. basically you cook spagetti noodles and mix them in taco seasoning and other things along with ground beef (i use ground turkey) and crush up fritos (or she used tortilla chips) and sprinkle with cheese and sour cream.. soooo good! ;D

I'm making a really yummy smelling beef stew in the cook pot right now. However, making it might have been more trouble than it's worth....I ended up cutting a very large and possibly pretty deep gash across my left palm while cutting potatoes, and then I clogged up my garbage disposal on potato peels while I was tending to my wound. Darn potatoes! I hope my hand heals on its own, because I am currently in between health insurance policies. Opps. (I'm not covered again until 1/1/09! Yikes!)
But I am excited for the beef stew later on!

It's all about slow cooked casseroles in my kitchen at the moment!

Last night was three sausage and tomato casserole (chunky pork and herb, frankfurter, and chorizo), with a crunchy potato top.

Tonight is a pork and lentil slow cooker casserole, made with cider.  Probably serve that with roast potatoes or maybe rice.  And a bottle of cider, obviously  ;)

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and pear gingerbread that's baking right now!  (I cheat and use canned pears and a mix, but mmm boy.)   

I've seen no-knead bread pop up a few times on this thread.  What's a good recipe for it?  Is it relatively quick, since there's (I'm assuming) no kneading involved?

this is the recipe that I'm using: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/08/dining/081mrex.html

It doesn't take much actual work, but you have to plan ahead for it, since you let is rise for 12-18 hours (and then another 2).  But it comes out pretty darn good!

What a fantastic inspiring thread! Tonight's going to be...carrot and coriander soup. The soup recipe was shared in a book review of Covent Garden and can be found here: http://www.dooyoo.co.uk/printed-books/new-covent-garden-soup-companys-book-of-soups/1004434/

I made three times this amount a fortnight ago and froze portions - it doesn't seem to last long in our house tho! A tip: if you freeze the soup add a dash of milk when reheating it, as some of the cream may evaporate. This'll make the soup nice and creamy. I absolutely stake everything on this being the best soup recipe ever!

Happy cooking

I would love to... but they kind of sucked. :P The mixture came out way too mushy and they were really bland.  I had to put a ton of BBQ sauce and some hot sauce on them to eat them.  Next time, I think I need a recipe with more tofu or grains or something.  These were mostly beans and sweet potatoes.

My daughter was very serious when she requested that we make tacos.  "The ones that taste like Taco Bell."   ::)

That would be the kind you make with ground beef and those Old El Paso seasoning packets.  I think that's what we'll be having although I think I'll make some homemade salsa for them.

Saturday night: my bf took me to O'Charley's and they made a special vegetarian meal for me.It was rice with steamed asparagus, broccoli, and carrots. Plus those yummy rolls..and a baked potato. Then on the way home we were in a car wreck so all of my leftovers I was holding flew everywhere and there is now rice in his air system....but he is going to have a new car so it doesn't matter.

Sunday: I microwaved a morningstar veggie burger and had some fries. I really didn't want it, but I had to eat something. Plus I had a coupld of mini cinnamon bins my dad made.

Tonight: I don't know yet, hopefully something light... ???

I'm feeling crummy today, so my hubby made pasta with parmesan and some steamed veggies.

For Thanksgiving, we went overboard and had turkey, yams, scalloped potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, rice stuffing, bread stuffing, butternut and carrot puree, sweet potato rolls, and pearl onions with peas.  Plus a tray of pickles, olives and cranberry sauce.  For dessert we had apple crisp with ice cream, pumpkin pie, chocolate pudding pie, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, and a persimmon bundt cake.

cinnamon teal - holy moley that's a lot of food!!   :D

Last night I marinated some salmon steaks in a hoisin style sauce, then fried them.  Served on top of rice noodles briefly stir-fried in a tangy-spicy-zesty sauce of orange and lime juices, olive oil, chilli sauce and soy sauce.  Got the recipe from a food blog, I can dig it out if anyone's interested.  Very simple, very delish.

Tonight was a simple bacon and red pepper sauce with pasta.

I'm thinking red curry with chicken legs, potato and cauliflower. We're having to cut our grocery budget down to the $30 a week range because the end of the year is always really tight....but I just can't deal with ramen and frozen salisburys. I wish I had a better range of yummy cheap food that I liked. I also wish my husband didn't need meat at every dinner, because i could totally swing it if we went veggie. He likes the veggie dishes I make, but always ends up getting a bowl of cereal afterward because his brain is convinced he can't be full if there wasn't meat. And there go the breakfasts I had planned for the week. Sigh.

I know there's a lot of threads about this....just venting a little.

Last night I marinaded salmon steaks with lime and soy sauce and baked them, with sweet potato wedges and cumin-dusted cauliflower florets. Also I made a yummy garlic pea puree.

We got together as a family and made lasagne. It was delicious and for dessert we tried a new recipes, below along with the Mexican Hot Chocolate:  (hope it's alright to share the recipes): Dessert:
ITALIAN FIG COOKIES

2 cups shortening
3 cups white sugar
6 eggs
8 cups all-purpose flour
7 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
pinch salt
milk
3 - 5 pounds of figs
1 pound raisins
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar
1 whole orange (with peel)
1 small apple
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
To make dough, cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt. Blend in flour and baking powder by hand. Knead dough until smooth and workable. Add milk to reach workable consistency.
To make filling, cut up figs, orange, and apple into small pieces, then pass through a food mill or grinder. The spices and chopped nuts are added to the ground fig mixture. After the fig mixture is ground, sprinkle them in over the mixture and mix it in by hand.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll out some dough faily thin. Put fig mixture in a line. Wrap dough over mixture, sealing figs inside dough. Trim to desired length, using a diagonal cut. Make small diagonal slits in the sides of the cookies. Bake on
ungreased cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes.

&&&&&&&&&&&&

MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE

1 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
5 teaspoons instant coffee
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 dash salt
2 cups milk
Heat all the ingredients except milk in saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes. Stir in milk; heat just until hot. Beat with
hand mixer until foamy. Top with whipped cream if desired. Serve immediately.

over the weekend I made a sirloin roast with some veggies in the slow cooker, since then we had been having left overs & making different kinds of meals with the roast to use it up. tonight however we went out for some thai food. I was getting tired of eating the roast for the past few days for lunch and supper.

Potatoe soup is one of the easiest meals I learned to make at a young age. It's really just boiling the potates...Making a rue.(from butter,onions(optional) flour and milk) Draining the potoes so half of the liquid is still left and mixing the rue in. I also fry bacon and put it in but if your a veg. you could simply substitue with soy bacon bits..(just as good that way)


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: cinnamon teal on January 15, 2009 08:05:13 PM
Our fridge is starting to look bare, so I scrounged around and made some mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach and my own "baked" beans.  I'm actually pretty proud of the beans.  I took some canned pintos, added onions, molasses, ketchup, beer and spices.  They came out pretty darn good. :)

Wow, that potato soup looks scrumptious!
Last night, I had kind of a make-shift chicken "stroganoff". It was really good and made with things I already had in the pantry. Here's what I did:
Cubed boneless, skinless chicken breast and cooked in a skillet in some olive oil. I seasoned it with rosemary and sage, along with a bit of salt and pepper. I threw in some fresh sliced mushrooms and sauted those when the chicken was almost done. Then I added a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, a can of condensed cream of chicken soup, and a 1/2 cup of water. I stirred it up good and simmered over medium heat, covered, for about 8-10 minutes. I served it over cooked egg noodles. It was really yummy, and super easy and cheap too.
Tonight I'm having either beef stew that I made awhile back and stuck in the freezer with cheesy garlic biscuits, or bbq chicken wings and mac n cheese. I haven't decided yet, so I'm gonna wait for my finance to come home and see what he would prefer. ;)

We had Vietnamese chicken soup, which goes by the name of Pho Ga (I think) the other night and I immediately had to make it at home..I heartily recommend it as the most delicious soup on earth. We cheated and used canned chicken broth with a bit of soy sauce and ginger stirred in, but otherwise we followed Emeril's recipe on the Food Network site..http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/pho-ga-vietnamese-chicken-noodle-soup-recipe/index.html

since I am allergic to milk and told by my dr to also avoid wheat or gluten I made rice pasta and a soy/vegan based cheese (no milk or gluten/wheat), I had to end up using a little milk to make it thinner (I didn't have any soy or rice milk on hand). It was better after adding the milk, it did not have much of a taste, ws better after adding some salt and pepper. This morning I made some gluten free/milk free pancakes, they were pretty good, even my husband liked them (he had bought some regular pancake mix in case he didn't like mine but he just ended up having mine instead).

Friday night was home made pizzas(on gluten free pizza bases from the supermarket) - roast courgette and shallots with lardons - yum. And a salad. It was the first time we used the gluten-free pizza bases and they are delish - much nicer than the spelt ones I tried to make before.

We made a gluten diary free pizza, with store bought gluten free dough, pizza sauce and non-diary/no gluten soy cheese. It was alright, learned a few things at our first attempt, I forgot to preheat the oven for 400-500 degrees before putting in the pizza. Since the 'cheese' take so long to melt compared to the pizza dough. oh well my husband still thought it was alright, he had a few slices. Tomorrow night it will either be left over pizza or tacos with gluten free tortilas. I bought a bread machine so hopefully we will give that a try over the weekend or so. I have missed some breads, just hope they don't turn out like the gluten breads in the store. they feel like they weigh 5 lbs!

Corn on the cob and home made onion rings. It was the first time I made the onion rings like this - I dredged them in flour and fried them twice. Absolutely delicious. I got such a craving for onions last night - I don't usually use onions in cooling these days because they don't agree with my husband.

The night before I mashed potatoes and added some  rocket pesto and parmesan and baked it for a while and served it with whiting baked in white wine with shallots and capers (served  with carrots as well) - it was yum.

We went out with the kids for Valentines Day and then the day after we went to a family thing, so today I'm cooking again.  I boiled up some bratwurst in beer and onions and we'll grill them up for supper.  I'm also serving a walnut-cranberry coleslaw.  I'd like to make a fruit pie too, but I dunno.

I'm doing an Italian Pasta Bake tonight.  We made homemade pizzas Friday, so I need to get rid of the pepperoni, Canadian bacon, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.  I'll mix the meats and sauce up with cooked rotini pasta, top with shredded cheese and bake until it's brown on top.  Quick and easy and I'll have an empty fridge.  :)

Sunday night was homemade pizza, with ham and pineapple on top.

Last night was a pasta bake with tomatoes, chicken and mushrooms.

Tonight was an experiment that I'm going to call Breakfast Fried Rice.  Basically just egg fried rice, with crispy bacon and fried mushrooms.  The egg, bacon and mushrooms combo made it feel quite breakfasty I guess!  Very tasty.

Last night was Chicken and veg stir fry with Sichuan sauce and rice.

I had a MacDonalds on the way to college this evening(shhh, I rarely indulge) and had some left rice when I came home. I am officially sick of chicken now - we have some chicken on Monday night too with the left overs of Sunday night's Vegetarian Indian Special 3 meal deal.

I don't often cook roasts, so last night I roasted a duck, with roast potatoes and squash, with steamed beans and broccoli.


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Saor on February 23, 2009 01:22:26 AM
Yum, I love duck.

On Friday I disfrosted an Indian I made last month - minced lamb.

On Saturday we went for a Chinese meal with my parents- in-law.

Last night I was pretty tired so I cooked up bacon lardons and added sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts from jars along with blue cheese and served it with pasta. Quick and tasty.

Last night we had scalloped potatoes and some breaded ranch chicken (chicken breast coated in ranch dressing, then coated in a mix of italian breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese and baked in the oven - delicious :DD ). It was super fast and went perfect together.

Last night we had pork roast with cabbage, carrots, potatoes, onions and gravy.  Tonight I made biscuits.  The kids had biscuits and scrambled eggs, I had two biscuits with baked chicken and honey on them.  I made square biscuits--instead of using a round cutter I patted the dough into a 1" thick square and cut 2" squares from it.  It was super easy, and no rerolling needed.

Good idea on the square biscuits! Why are they supposed to be round anyway, since having them square is so much more efficient?!

I made a salad and pasta shells stuffed with ground beef and several different kinds of cheese (ricotta, mozzerella, romano, and parmesan) and smothered in more cheese and marinara sauce. It was my first time making any sort of stuffed shells, and they were soooo yummy! I can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Monday night we had friends round, so I made a broccoli and cauliflower cannelloni bake, with fresh bread and salad.

Last night we had stew made from the roast leftovers.  Tonight was basically every man for himself--I had a craving for shells and cheese so I made that, but DH had run to the store for milk and picked up a few TV dinners, so everyone else had those.

I love to cook, but being responsible for meals and nutrition every single day forever and ever is such a drag!   :-\

I honestly think this is the worst thing about being a stay-at-home parent.  I think it would probably be easier if I was a terrible cook, then I wouldn't pressure myself about this.  It's getting later and I'm getting hungrier, so I think we can easily have spaghetti with meat sauce.  We all like that.


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Saor on March 09, 2009 02:50:22 PM
I am not a parent but the worse thing I find about working from home is guilt over not having  a tidier house.

I usually fall back on pasta or cous cous and grilled meat or soup and a sandwich if I am clueless about dinner but sometimes I just don't want to cook...It was easier when there was no good takeaway in town - I had to cook;)

Anyway the stew was delicious - I got the recipe off the internet - I don't think I would have thought of squash and beef together otherwise. Dh tweaked the recipe a bit.

Last night we had turkey Croque Monsieur and vegetable soup.

I am off cooking duty because I am recovering from a minor operation - it's nice not having to worry about dinner.

How do you make that? I've got a few pie crusts that are close to expiration but no idea what to do with them.

Tonight we had... cheerios. In my defense, we got back from a 10 day vacation yesterday and barely had anything in the house.
I have dinner all prepped and stored in the fridge for tomorrow night. We're having meatloaf with a slightly spicy bbq sauce and baked potatoes. I made about 6x as many potatoes as necessary so I'll have LOTS for leftovers to make into baked potato soup.

My recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book which I received as a wedding shower gift in 1991.  It is a great cookbook for a family or a new cook.

You have to bake the crust in the baking pan at 450 until it is nearly done, about 10-12 minutes.  Line the crust with a couple layers of foil for the first 5 minutes and prick the bottom with a fork to keep it from puffing up.

While it is baking, mix up
3 or 4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup sliced green onion (I never have green onion, I used red onion)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
3/4 cup chopped cooked meat (Chicken, crabmeat or ham)  (I didn't have any meat, so I heated up frozen chopped broccoli and drained off the water)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used cheddar) 
Mix  1 tablespoon of flour into the shredded cheese before adding it to the milk mixture.

Pour into the hot pastry and bake at 325 for 35-40 minutes until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

I am a practical cook, so I like the Better Homes and Betty Crocker cookbooks.  The recipes are tried and true without fussy ingredients and include basic instructions for most things.  I get frustrated with gourmet cookbooks that only have a few recipes I might like to try.   

Also, one failing of mine is that I must follow recipes.  I am not inventive in the kitchen. I have to have the instructions out, even for things that I have memorized how to make.

Tonight will be more pasta (last of the bag) and some free-range, organic chicken thighs (or 'happy chicken' as we call it) which was part-cooked in the micro & then finished in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil and lots of season-all spice- yummier  ;D

Last night was king prawns stir-fired with green pepper, garlic, fresh ginger and scallion and noodles. I made a simple sauce with more ginger, scallion, soy sauce, lemon  and stock. Simple and delicious  - it really brought the sweetness of the prawns. It was the time I made dinner in over a week and it felt good to be cooking again.

My mother somehow got it into her head that she needed to buy an 80lb case of ground beef! I ended up with 20 lbs of it (at a really good price) but I had to do something with it before it went bad.

So today was beef day. I cut most of it into nearly 1 lb sections to freeze but also browned 4 lbs with onion and garlic and froze each pound separately and made 3 lbs of meatballs!

Dinner was whole wheat spaghetti, red sauce and fresh, homemade meatballs.

I tried a recipe for crescent rolls and they didn't turn out. The oven was too hot and for some reason the recipe didn't allow any rising time, just a short refrigeration.  Also, the oven setting was way too hot.  What a pain.  :P

We had chicken soup and garlic bread yesterday. I had a cold for the last few days so I didn't feel like cooking much. Neither did my husband as he is getting over the same cold. We snacked on fruit and then I made Smores for the first time ever.

Tonight we had barbecue flavour sardines on toast followed a few hours later by ham salad sandwiches and fruit - I will have to cook tomorrow for sure.

I had a beefburger, some grilled aubergine (eggplant) and courgette (zucchini), tabbouleh, grilled sweetcorn and a sweet potato wrapped in foil.  Yummy yummy.


Last night I made bean burgers for the first time ever.  They came out well, I think I'd make them again.

Interesting how your first sunny day of the year is the same day that mother nature dumped 6 inches of snow on us, after a few weeks of very nice warm sunny weather!! I couldn't believe my eyes when I woke up this morning to all that snow!
I think I'm making meatballs tonight, although I'm not sure yet. I am getting hungry though, so I best figure it out soon!

Last night was a take on Chicken Caccitore  - I used chopped up chicken breast and peppers and leeks and threw in artichoke hearts as well. We had it with rice and it was good.

There was not that much left so tonight I make sweet potato chips in the oven - so good. I padded out the chicken with some green beans and we had it with pitta bread and a green salad. Very good:)

Doh - I meant to type sweet potato chips. You peel and chunk the potato, drizzle with olive oil and salt ( I add cayenne pepper or taco seasoning) and bake in the oven - so good and healthy.

sparrowlegs - beetroot is a vegetable I can take or leave. the baked potato sounds good though. And - I have never gotten into the habit of a Sunday roast - I feel a bit guilty about that.

What's tri-tip?


It's a triangular shaped cut of beef really popular in southern california.  It's really good when you coat it with a dry rub and grill it.  Then you slice it and serve with salsa.

When I was younger I had a babysitter that would feed us ice cream for breakfast.
haha.
One day she called my mom at work and asked her where the salsa was at 8 in the morning.
She told my mom it was because she was going to have chips and salsa and my sister and I were going to have ice cream. haha.

You must have had an awesome babysitter.

Tonight we are having homemade noodles and butter and porkchops. And we will make stemaed bread (my husband discovered this after we broke our oven). Maybe some pie later tonight. You can get a pie in a box at Walmart that doesn't need to be refridgerated or baked, just add milk.

I am going to roast some chicken portions & have them with new potatoes and spinach salad. I think there will be roast garlic. Yum!

I roasted the chicken portions in lots of lemon juice with garlic. I covered the potatoes with parsley and butter. The salad was spinach, pepper, tomato, scallion. I also added feta, sun-dried tomatoes and olive. It was quite salty - but we like salty:) It was so good.

Think I'll do ratatouille tonight  or a curry - I have veg I need to use up.

 Boyf and I are working on being frugal, so everything is coming from what we have around our apartments, and we can get pretty inventive. 

Last night actually tasted good - Spanish rice with grilled chicken for dinner, and for dessert we took some remnants of ice cream and frozen strawberries and made a milkshake which we promptly poured over a slice of cake mix chocolate cake fresh from the oven.  We each had two servings - it was SOOO yummy!  I'm definitely going to be doing this in the future, experimenting with different milkshake flavors.

Tonight we had a simple bacon and tomato pasta dish, with green beans on the side.  Pudding was some kind of cake that my bf brought back from a trip to the south coast.  He can't remember what it was called, but it was very stodgy, with lots of cinnamon with raisins.  It was a cake rather than pastry, so it wasn't a Chelsea bun.  Any ideas?!


Title: Re: What's for supper?

A salad -- leafy greens, cucumber slices, and a tomato, with a very vinegary vinaigrette (a bunch of vinegar, a drop of oil, some mustard, salt, and pepper), with a piece of buttered bread and a small slice of goat cheese melted in foil in the oven.  Melted (or grilled) goat cheese with salad is SO good.

Thanks for your suggestions re the mystery cake!  It turns out that it was Bread Pudding. I thought bread pudding was quite moist (like bread and butter pudding) whereas this cake was quite dry and hard/grainy in texture.   ???

Tonight was trout baked with cherry tomatoes and olives, served with pasta and green beans.

Saor - it wasn't as moist looking as that bread pudding.  Maybe it had dried out in transit.  Mmm now I want bread and butter pudding with lashings of custard... *wonders off to the kitchen*


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Saor on April 09, 2009 01:55:21 PM
The thing about bread and butter pudding is that I always think I like it more than I do - then when I make it I it's just o.k. Jamie Oliver makes one with hot cross buns that looks good though.

We had chicken curry tonight - with lots of veggies and naan bread. Lots left too.

Chicken pizza for dinner tonight. I make it but it's nothing special. I use premade crusts and sauce. I add a little garlic salt and some oregano and put some olive oil on the crust. Then I add the cheese mix and the cooked chicken. It's my favorite pizza.  ;D

I hate getting indifferent food when I eat out - have to say  have always gotten great food in pubs and restaurants in England. A crab in Dorset springs to mind particularly, yum.

We'll probably finish off the curry or get chips and fish maybe.

Fish is traditional on Good Friday, but instead I'm cooking a lamb roast hehehe.  We had fish last night though..!  8)  So we're having roast lamb, with roast potatoes and parsnips, caramelised carrots and steamed broccoli.  And gravy of course.  The weather here is absolutely miserable, so I'm going to cheer myself up by knocking it all back with a glass of red and then watch a DVD  :)

I feel your pain sparrowlegs - instant mash in a restaurant or pub?!?!   :o  I've actually walked out of a restaurant once before because the food was rubbish.  It took a lot of balls, but it's your right as a consumer.

Today I had a geology field trips and my husband was on a sponsored walk along an old railway line. When we finished we were tired and hungry and didn't feel like cooking and we went and had smoked cod and chips(him) and calamari and chips(me). This place in the city does amazing sweet, perfectly cooked calamari. So good - I had been craving it for a few days and so was happy. We had ice-cream when we came home.

Thinking of doing fish (in the oven maybe with tomato?), new potatoes and grilled aubergine with feta and mint. My muscles are sore so I am looking for a dinner where I don't have to peel any veggies.

I made a puree of sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, olives and capers and spread it on the fish, wrapped it all in tin-foil and baked it. We had it with new potatoes with butter and parsley and aubergine grilled in the oven and layered with feta, mint and parsley. Had a glass of red too. Was going to have berries for dessert but we were too full.

Leftover chili (the best kind, IMHO) served over spaghetti with shredded sharp cheddar on top. Probably a salad to go with. I think this might be the end of chili weather :(

Funny you should ask. My lovely sister in law from the country, just brought me some yellow squash and cucumbers. So I now have my lovely squash in a pot which started with some carmelized oninons and a little bacon. I'll cook them down until the water is gone. I love yellow squash.  So we'll have that, some great sliced tomatos and cukes and whatever mystery meat, my DH is grilling. He just left for the store so I have no idea what he is getting. I need to call him and put in an order for cheesecake. : )

I don't reseason the chicken but you can if you want to! Fried plantains are easy to make and yummy! I use regular sized bananas bc I always have them around but most people would tell you to get the larger sized plantains. I cut them diagonally, put some oil in a pan and just fry each side of the banana until brown. Yummy!!


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Smuckers9 on June 09, 2009 07:56:11 PM

I'm experiencing a green-bean explosion in my garden right now -- I made Szechuan green beans & rice -- I used Guy Fiero's recipe on the Food Network site.  Good, even though I burned the garlic and realized I didn't have soy sauce half way through the recipe - so should have been even better.


Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Saor on July 06, 2009 07:19:17 AM
I made a kind of burrito casserole with the burrito left overs. I layered tortilla and the meat mixture9bulked out with baked beans) with cheese and tortilla chips and guacamole and put it in the oven. It was really good. We are both a bit tired of Mexican food now though.

I have some turkey mince that needs using up - I might make burgers and have them with new potatoes and corn on the cob.


Title: Re: What's for supper?

Last night I had grilled eggplant which we marinated in balsamic, Zucchini and Squash and Baked Potatoes.
The rest of the family had steak instead of eggplant though.

Tonight is spaghetti and I think I will make more zucchini and squash for myself.  :)

yes it is very tastey, the first time i made it i'd forgotten to pick up regular potatos and only realised once i'd started cooking but i found it to be rather tastey with sweet potato and makes a nice change

if you're ill you should have some soup, nice thick home made soup *sends you telepathetic soup*

Hairy Weiners.  They're not just for boys anymore.
Its one of my favorite "gross" one-pot meals that my daughter just loves.  We probably have it twice a month as a treat.  Fill a pot with water, dump in some frozen vegies like broccoli or other things they might not like to eat.  WHile its getting on to boil, slice some weiners thickly.  Break some spaghetti or linguine (sp) in half and spear the weiners all directions with about six-eight noodles.  Dumpem in & cookem.  Ketchup, PLain, cheeze whiz, garlic alfedo sauce ... anything goes.
Yeah its weird.  But actually not bad tasting.  If ya put sauce on em it could even be "gross" food for halloween.

Kerriedaway, you'll need to make some pumpking pie brioche! It's so easy to make, really! I was afraid of bread until I discovered this no knead bread. Once you bake the bread, you just make your standard french toast with it. It is heavenly!

It's new recipe night here. I'm making chicken tikka masala. I'm actually just about to let my hubster know it's time to start grilling! Yum! I can't wait. :)

I've been sick so today was a handful of samples from Costco and guacamole. I'm not sure if I'm going to eat dinner as of yet. Maybe chewing on some candied ginger...

The last of the winter squash, chicken strips and stuffing. Lots and lots of stuffing.  :)

I got lazy today (ok, sidetracked. I don't want to put my knitting down). I threw chicken pieces (a whole chicken) in a large casserole dish, and covered them with honey, butter, salt, and smoked chipotle. Around that I put cubed sweet potatoes that were tossed in olive oil, sea salt, and dill.

Took 10 minutes to put together, I love it.  :)
