    What's for dinner?

    So what is everyone cooking today? I love new ideas so let's hear what's on your menu for either lunch or dinner. I've discovered Stouffer's frozen meals in a bag for two. I'm having the chicken and dumplings for lunch. We typically don't eat big at night so plenty of time to work this off. Shoepeg corn as an extra side. I added more carrots to the chicken also.

    That's mine, what's yours?

    We are having those hot ham and cheese sandwiches - you make them out of those Hawaiian Sweet Rolls and wrap them in foil and heat in the oven. Also having cottage cheese and potato chips with fresh sliced strawberries for dessert.

    I cook a dinner meal most nights. Tonight it is fried cube steak with peppers and onions, homemade biscuits with red eye gravy, baked squash, sliced tomatoes, and applesauce.

    My grands and DH love the Impossible Hamburger pie recipe from Bisquick. It's easy and tastes good. I always add more cheese then called for though. LOL. I make that when we need something quick to eat instead of getting pizza. DH eats it with sour cream, the kids and I eat cranberries with it.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Tonight is tacos. Tomorrow is a homemade Runza. Friday is undecided. I'd better start thinking. I like the sound of those hot ham and cheese sandwiches mentioned above.

    Crock pot roast beef. This is a recipe born out of desperation - I wanted roast beef, but I wanted to cook it in a crock pot and have it be flavorful instead of bland and boiled-tasting. When I scrabbled around my cupboard, I found a packet of brown gravy mix and a packet of garlic peppercorn marinade, I think it's made by Weber. Dumped those in the crock pot, along with sliced onions, some water, and the roast. It came out so yummy and spicy, and the family loves it! If I'm lucky, I get 2 meals out of it. I make a gravy with the drippings, and sometimes I'll mix in cream or sour cream.

    McCain's extra thin frozen Pizzas. I can get 2 on sale for under $5.00. They have several varieties and because the crust is thin they get nice and crispy on the bottom if you do them right. I do half the time with the pizza pan under and the last half just on the oven rack. Cut in half for my husband and I make a nice lunch.

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    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.

    Yum, these all sound so good! We're having Arby's tonight. I have coupons!

    Tomorrow, though, it's back to regular food. Probably steak from our Christmas box of "Omaha steaks", baked sweet potatoes and fresh green beans (I make them an italian way with olive oil and vinegar).

    Spaghetti sauce is simmering on the stove, water in the pot for the noodles, mushrooms are ready to fry.... and salad is in the bag (ha ha - I will throw in some cucumber and sprinkle with craisins) and the dressing will be balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

    Tomorrow will be popcorn or something like that

    Wednesday night is usually chicken night. DH picks it up after work. Sometimes sides sometimes not. Either way I make sure I have sides to go with. Last night for dessert though I cut up some strawberries and bananas and pineapple and drizzled some lime juice and chili powder over the top. Refreshing!

    I just discovered Collard Greens and so I made them with sauted garlic, and white beans with a little sweet red pepper over tiny penne'.

    So easy, one pan supper.

    I use a soup pot and cook the pasta first and dump into colander.

    In the same pot add some olive oil and toss in some chopped garlic and sweet red pepper and any amount of rough chopped collard greens you want and a little salt and let it sweat down a little. Cut out the big veins in the leaves before you chop them.

    When the greens are almost cooked to your liking add the (canned) rinsed white beans.

    Cook until beans are hot. Taste and add salt & pepper and some ground nutmeg, just a little and taste again and again until you like the flavor.

    Dump the pasta back into the pot and stir. Re-season to your liking.

    Enjoy

    i fight over what to make every night I never have any ideas and lets say no one around here is tossing out any ideas either.. .. However, Darling is a MEAT and potatoes guy.. We usually get 1/2 hog and 1/2 beef... IM so not complaining- grateful for a full freezer of meat, but, theres days when i wish i he was a vegetarian..

    tonight is pork, side of fresh green beans, baked potatoes and a Chocolate Mousse Cake for dessert..

    Any day of the week is some type of potato, veggie can only be peas (yuck), corn (boring) or beets (gag) with either chicken, pork, hamburger dish or the occasional steak. I love every other type of veggie and he doesn't. He is the poorest excuse for a farm boy I have ever met.

    One pot wonder. It's a pasta dish all made in one pot.
