What's for dinner?

Postby Heather » Mon May 09, 2011 6:57 am

I posted this on FB, too....

I think tonight we're having Philly cheesesteaks, but I need ideas for the rest of the week. I'm so tired of the same ol' stuff!

I posted on your facebook about our blueberry pancakes and sausage. We ate out the night before Mother's Day and worked in the yard yesterday, so we planned breakfast for dinner. Originally it was going to be eggs and hashbrowns, but I remembered having fresh blueberries. Used a mix with buttermilk (rather than water) and added a teaspoon of sugar. Really, really good!

How about grilled hamburgers?

Monday - tuna pasta salad (with PBJ for my tuna hater)

Tuesday - spaghetti

Wedneday - kielbasa hot dish (pasta, cheese sauce, veggies and kielbasa)

Thursday - taquitos

Friday - Simon cooks

Saturday - we're camping at Wild Adventures

Sunday - probably take-out on the way home

Nothing fancy this week as we're so busy in the evenings - Monday is parent orientation for the middle school at 6 and Boy Scouts at 7; Tuesday is Girl Scouts at 630 and Thursday is the GS SU meeting at 7 so quick and easy meals are needed.

I need to be more organized!

Leftover pizza.

DH gets back late tonight/early tomorrow morning (he was golfing in Myrtle Beach with an old friend this weekend). He flies out again tomorrow afternoon and won't be back until late Friday night. This week is Ian's spring concert so he has evening rehearsals tonight and Tuesday, with the concert on Thursday night. Duncan has track meets M/W and practice T/Th/Fri. He has lax practice T/W/Th and a game on Friday. And our neighborhood garage sale in Fri/Sat morning. And DH's SIL's family reunion is Sat afternoon in MD.

I SHOULD plan out our meals with such a crazy schedule. I know one night will be breakfast for dinner. Another night will be burgers/dogs on the grill.

Tonight was grilled chicken basted with chutney, soy sauce and olive oil, applesauce, and haluski (smothered cabbage and egg noodles). Guess we will eat leftovers because there's a lot left.

Thanks for the ideas!! I don't know if it's b/c of the heat or what, but I just have NO appetite lately. NOTHING sounds like I could stomach looking at it.

Tonight, we're having Carribean Jerk Chicken, grilled pineapple, salad and some sort of potatoes.

a hot weather favorite here is chicken caesar salad -- Break romaine into bite sized pieces, grill chicken breast then cut into bite-size pieces and toss with bottled caesar salad sauce... super easy, somewhat healthy and yum!

We also eat a lot of couscous salads in the summer. Check the 'net for Israeli couscous recipes. I have one that is specially good but have lost the measurements (now I do it by sight).. will see if I can dig it out.

linda i want to eat at your house! i was in FL last week, oh my gosh it's so beautiful! hadn't been there since 1993 and the greenery was just breathtaking. i thought of you and of Jen O and AA. didn't like the lovebugs though.

we're grilling chicken tonight and i have the oven turned on to finish up some freezer junk: tater tots, french fries, cheese sticks. girls have friends over so i know it'll all get used up. tomorrow night is grilled hamburgers.

i signed up today for a box of organic vegetables each week. i have a friend doing it and she says it's fun and that it forces you to eat tons more and new veggies. do any of you do this?

Jane - one of my co-workers does that. Her biggest complaint is that she got a bag of apples every week, and she is the only one that eats them.

Tonight we are having a Mexican dinner a la *Moes*. I am slow cooking a pork tenderloin with a marinade, and we are having burritos with: shoepeg corn, salsa, guacamole, rice, lettuce, tomato and cheese and mexican rice on the side. I am drooling just thinking of it! :grin:

Tonight is Orecchiette with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe. It is TDF! If you follow Weight Watchers, it is only 7 points for a 1 1/2 cup serving!

    1 large bunch broccoli rabe, washed and trimmed off stems
    1# lean chicken sausage, removed from casing
    1 tsp olive oil
    5-6 cloves garlic, chopped
    10 oz. orecchiette (pasta)
    1 cup low sodium fat free chicken broth
    1/4 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
    Crushed red pepper flakes
Cut broccoli rabe in quarters. Bring a large pot of water to boil. When it comes to a rolling boil, add broccoli rabe. Blanch for about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. Drain and set aside in a colander. Refill pot with water and salt for the pasta and bring back to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions til al dente. In a large deep saute pan brown sausage on medium heat, breaking up into small pieces as it cooks. When completely cooked through set aside in a bowl. Increase heat to medium high, add olive oil to pan. When hot add garlic and cook until golden. Return broccoli rabe to the pan, mix well with the garlic and oil, season with salt and pepper and cook about 1 minute. Return cooked sausage to the pan and mix well. Drain pasta and add to the broccoli rabe. Reduce heat and stir for about 30 seconds. Add chicken broth, parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Toss so that everything is mixed well and the pasta is coated with the sauce. Serve with additional grated cheese.

That sounds delicious. I need to remember that as an option. So do you buy hotdog rolls or sub rolls or do the bake fresh bread?
