    I am fixing me a humongous salad with everything but the kitchen sink in it and am trying Newman's Sesame Ginger low fat dressing and then some buttered peas and Potato Gnocchi in Alfredo sauce. Very simple very easy. Lotsa work today. Edie Oh, almost forgot a glass of wine.

    had this 2 nights ago. I cook extra spaghetti noodles and add a doz more shrimp, and use one package of Bertollis shrimp scampi frozen dinner. I sometimes cook more noodles than needed and freeze them for a later meal. I have tried other brands, but Bertolli is the best tasting. IMO.

    I'm embarrassed to say I don't cook anymore, maybe twice in 2 weeks. Hubby does it all. And he shops.
    I work part time, do all the house work( whenever) and all the gardening...and sew. I love being free of deciding everyday what to cook. (ps he's a more imaginative cook than I).

    Lightly seasoned Hoki (kind of Hake from NZealand) fillets pan fried in butter and olive oil, served over Spanokopita (Greek dish basically spinach and rice cooked up with some onion). It's pretty healthy and quick to do, so a good workday meal.

    Mmmmm everybody's dinners look delicious.

    MaryKatherine, don't be embarrassed I love cooking I've been cooking for a family since I was 10 some days I'm just done with it. Mr. Bills idea of cooking is warm up leftovers, nuke a frozen Marie calandars pot pie, or call for a pizza. As far as grocery shopping, he would probably wind up in the fetal position by the frozen stuff wondering why there are so many choices.

    I don't mind cooking. I've basically been cooking 2 meals all my married life, 33 yrs, cuz one doesn't eat something. Usually that one is my husband. I just want ideas sometimes. Yesterday we had no water all afternoon and evening. So I thawed some haddock fillets and baked them with butter, garlic salt and chives, instant mashed potatoes, used bottled water and frozen corn. Then I didn't have to clean up the dishes for a while until we got the water running again so I was able to sew for a while. I had chicken breasts for yesterday but without water I couldn't clean them or me too well. Don't realize how much you miss something until you don't have it. Tonight? I think we are eating out, no time. Running, running.....

    So many good ideas. Thanks for all the input. I get in a rut sometimes and can't think of anything new or different. Now I have some great things to plan.

    Tonight is Marie Callender's frozen meals, they were on sale for $2 each, can't beat that for a good meal. I like hers better than any of the others. Some Pillsbury Rustic bread and fruit salad and two vanilla sandwich cookies will round it out.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    We are having Corn Chowder. It is easy, economical and we both like it.
    Here is the recipe:
    Ham, chopped into bite-size chunks
    1 or 2 potatoes, scrubbed and cubed
    1 can Creamed Corn.
    Combine all above, add salt and pepper and let cook on med-low abut 20 min.
    Serve with a glass of milk, bread and butter and maybe a cookie if you have any, for dessert!!
    Enjoy!
    Mariah
    Have a wonderful Quilting Day, make it your way!

    last night I made simple fried potatoes mixed with browned hamburger. Tonight we are having pizza, but my FAVORITE thing to make for a really nice supper is Sauerbraten (German Pot Roast). I wish I could have some right now.

    You all need to post recipes. This all sounds so good. I am making London broil. I put it in a marinade this morning and will cook it on the grill. I might make some kind of mushroom sauce for it. I just put some baked potatoes in the oven. Not sure what the veggie will be yet. Everyone is working late tonight so I got to take a much needed nap after work.
    I marinade it in some EVOO, wine vinegar, garlic, soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, and thyme.

    Tonight -- flounder filets baked with seasoned panko crumbs and parmesan topping, some quick-cook pasta stuff out of a bag and cooked carrots. Dessert later will be frozen yogurt.

    BOSTON1954: Ummmm....sauerbraten...one of my very favorite meats! Especially with spaetzle.

    And I've picked up some great ideas here. Thanks everyone! Thinking of what's for dinner is not my favorite thing
