We had fried flounder (battered with egg and potato flakes), mashed potaotes and steamed green beans with almonds....I would have prefered oven fries but my AC is broken and it was too hot to heat up the oven today.

Tonight we made baked cod with coconut milk sauce over a bed of swiss chard. It was super yum!

I've actually never tried cooking with coconut milk. Did your fish have a strong coconut flavor? Coconut isn't my favorite flavor so I was wondering.

It was my first attempt ever with coconut milk, and I also don't love coconut flavor. This was more mild than actual coconut flakes/flavoring, though. The fish did not have a strong coconut flavor at all, and I didn't pour on too much sauce, which was acidic because of the lemon. My husband ate the rest of the sauce with a spoon for dessert - he loved it, but too strong for me.

Tonight I'm having Ham & Bean soup made with ham and broth my dear DIL sent home with me after Easter dinner (also can add a stash of single servings for my freezer). And later tonight...a piece of leftover Flourless Chocolate Cake. Yum!

Tonight I'm trying something new! fish in parchment paper with some fresh herbs(dill and chives) and lemon. I added some veggies on top of the fish, it's baking now. I also did one with a chicken breast, lemon thyme, basil and veggies for lunch tomorrow. Throw in a side salad and a bowl of strawberries.

Leftovers here. The other night I baked chicken breasts with a little Herbamare, freeze dried onions and gluten-free mushroom gravy. Served with white rice and green beans.

I didn't make enough chicken. There was a lot of gravy left and some rice. I mixed in some canned chicken. Daughter will be eating that.

I'm going to have leftover baked beans.

Sorry, I'm new here but thought I'd chime in.

Tonight I'm having a homemade veggie burger (made with beans, veggies, nuts, and lots of herbs and spices), a homemade gluten-free bun and homemade garlic aoili. I'm serving that with a simple salad (spinach, red cabbage, carrots, with homemade maple syrup dressing) and peppery roasted potatoes.

Just sorry you didn't find us sooner, heh? :)

That sounds like a lot of work! I'll be right over!

Yes, I wish I had, the forums great! And the food is a lot of work, but it freezes well. I just make huge batches!

I have no idea! Argh, I'm in a rut and I need ideas...I currently have ground chicken, boneless skniless chicken breast, Tuna steaks and ground beef and none of it sounds good to me right now....Maybe a veggie stirfry instead? I have fresh summer squash, carrots, cereley, onion, garlic, frozen peppers, frozen peas, frozen brocoli... I'm so tired of rice though. I have baby red poatoes but I don't want to heat up the hosue with oven roasting them...will have to make them in the slow cooker tommorrow I guess. I have some dried yellow split peas to use up...Any ideas anyone? what is everyone else having tonight?
