What's for dinner?

It's 5 pm and I'm clueless! (And hungry. And it's supposed to sleet/snow/freeze rain later.)

If I'm at a total loss, and it's late, it is usually breakfast for dinner or canned soup with a grilled cheese.

Mixed up 5 eggs, seasonings and a little milk. Cut up a package of Grands biscuits into quarters and mixed into the eggs Added cooked, crumbled bacon a (about 1/2 lb) and shredded cheese (about a cup). Poured into a greased 10 x 10 pan. It's currently baking. I hope it only takes 35-40 minutes. You could add green onions, red/green peppers, broccoli, shredded carrots or any other veggie. You can substitute sausage or ham for the bacon.

corn plus corn is dinner here tonight - totally comfort food

Corn plus Corn

1 medium onion, minced
¼ C. oil
10 oz frozen corn, thawed
1 C. cornmeal
4 C. chicken broth or water
2 Tbsp. butter (optional)
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add corn kernels and sauté for another minute just to heat. Add the cornmeal and stir constantly over low heat about 1 minutes. Add broth/water and whisk continuously while bringing to a boil. Cover and simmer until thick @ 15 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in butter, if desired.

for the adults, chili from the freezer. For the kids, chicken nuggets from the freezer.

Linda your egg casserole sounds yummy and easy!

Tomorrow is pasta with plain red sauce for girls, meat sauce from the freezer for DH and I.

After that, no idea.

Linda and Linda, both your dishes sound good. Is the corn plus corn like a mush? Is it a regional dish? I've never heard of it.

The egg and biscuit dish is interesting and sounds good. Have you tried it before?

Dh out of town + a to do list a mile long for me + 4 hungry kids = order pizza for us!

my original plan was to have Campbell's Tomato soup and grilled cheese but pizza delivery sounds better/easier right now with cranky toddler, homework help needed, etc. Caglon!

Tonight we had alfredo with angel hair and chicken breast, corn and mixed veggies.

Alex had lots of leftovers: rice pasta and sauce, french fries, chicken and veggies. Some days are hard to find a duplicate of what we are eating for him to eat. Today was one of them, but it was all fine.

Turkey soup from the freezer, made from the T'giving turkey. And I guess if I want muffins with it, I better get cooking!

Me - taco bell on the way to meeting at the school
DH - Mexican restraunt where kids eat Free on Wed on the way back from dropping Cam off at concert
Cam... I'm not sure what he ate. I think he made a TV dinner from the freezer before we got home.

Wanda - yeah, mush is probably a good description but with corn kernals mixed in. I have no idea if it's a regional dish or not. I got it from a cookbook back when Simon was a baby -

I've never seen it before, but that looks like a great cookbook for Courtney.

Dinner was really disappointing tonight. Vincent cooked. He made this pesto, tortellini/ angel hair pasta dish he makes a lot that has sweet Italian sausage. It is DELICIOUS, but I am on a strict diet, so instead I had a premade chicken Caesar salad since it was only 200 calories. I am now snacking on some popcorn.

we had ribs, baked potato and salad. I'm not a fan of ribs, but everyone else loves 'em. The sacrifices we make for our family. I balanced it out by eating some ice cream afterwards.

Last night was Five Guys burgers & Fries, on the way home from an appointment with N.

Tonight - something quick and easy. No kids, no desire to cook.

This was pretty bland the way it came out. i would spice it up with green onions and more salt/pepper and cut back to 4 eggs. I would also up the bacon and cheese. It only took 35 minutes to bake.

Left over cheeseburger soup, garden salad and brownies. I made the brownies for someone else but they looked gooy so I didn't take them. My family won't mind. :D
