The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

I have a question. I have some leftover pot roast, a box of opened beef stock I don't think I'll use within a week, and some leftover tinkyada noodles. Can I made a soup out of this stuff? Or should I freeze it?

I vote for soup. Do you have any leftover vegetables? Carots, onions, beans of any kind, rice ...just dump it all in. A can of V-8 would be good,too.

I keep a plastic container in the freezer that I put leftover dabs of vegetables and beef into. Then at soup time, I dump it in a pot with beef or vegetable broth (canned) and simmer away.

Last night I made egg rolls and pork foo young. That was an experiment and it turned out really good.Since I can't eat safely at most Chinese restaurants, I'm learning to do it myself,

Tonight it's beef stew with slaw and cornbread.

I love this thread, too...and I'd like to come to some of your houses for dinner!!! biggrin.gif

Tonight I'm having a baked tilapia fillet, baked potato and spinach. Easy, peasy since I got the kitchen cleaned up after baking bread.

That sounds delish! I've never heard of Irish Davy Boy's though. I'll have to keep my eyes open for it!

My crockpot chicken turned out pretty well - but turned into more of a soup there was so much liquid! And I barely added any in the beginning, maybe 1/4thcup of oj and 1 orange squeezed. The meat was very tender though. Maybe I'll just add some noodles and call it chicken noodle soup :P

Okay, I'm good with the squash and cornbread but what is the oven risotto all about?

Karen is right--this stuff is good!

Last night I made it without the chicken--works great either way--

I'm thinking of making it for Xmas as a side.

So funny--I was thinking the same thing. My son would love it--I am going do do a rib roast and the risotto would be really good with it. Plus it can go right alongside it in the oven :)

I cooked last night! Not for me (still on the protein shakes....countdown to xmas party T-minus 9 hours :rolleyes: ) But the dinner was a hit with the fam:

Poached chicken thighs in chicken stock, with lots of garlic and seasonings

-deglazed the pan after I removed the chicken with a little water, added a pkt of mushroom gravy-to make gravy ;)

Served over mashed potatoes that I cooked in chicken stock, then added milk and butter.

Not cooking today, going out for Chinese. The place we go to have gotten to know us over the years and when I told him about Celiac he started making my dishes positively gluten free. No more eggrolls but I can still eat the rest!!!

Yay!

Support your local businesses they are more likely to take you seriously and provide gluten free options!!!

I had no idea what to make either so also had breakfast for dinner. Scrambled eggs, bacon, fried potatoes (from the leftover baked potato from last night). Worked for me. laugh.gif Clementines later.

Ugh! Went out to Olive Garden last night and got glutened somehow. I got their gluten free pasta to try for the first time. The pasta was actually good, in fact I suspect they gave me regular pasta because this did not taste like any gluten free pasta I have tried. My first clue should have been when the waitress asked if "gluten free" was the same thing as "low carb". :unsure:

Tonight I'm planning on making a meatloaf and a pack of steamed veggies. I may have to make my DH assemble the meatloaf though since I'm running to the bathroom every 30 minutes right now. :(

Tonight I made a basic meatsauce to go on top of TJ's rice pasta. Tasty & easy! Basically I put a whole onion in the food processor and sauteed it with 1lb of TJ's ground beef until it browned, added a can of tomato sauce and a small can of tomato paste, a cup of water, tsp sugar, tsp salt, and various dried herbs. I had one serving and my boyfriend inhaled the rest :o

Today I also turned the rest of my crockpot chicken into chicken noodle soup buy adding in some more water, chicken stock, straining out the glop, shredding up the bits of chicken and cutting up the chunks of potato and carrots. Also added some more herbs and a squeeze of honey. Very comforting!

Pot roast with onions, carrots, home-made 48 hour beef stock; yorkshire pudding (no, not my idea, hub wants to try - good luck!! - he's got better creds than I do - taught by his Welsh nana, my mom never made it) and broccoli.

We have to have a super quick to fix meal tomorrow so I'm heating up a turkey breast that is already cooked, making instant mashed potatoes with water and Nucoa only (no milk) and I'll probably pop open a can of green beans.

Well as I predicted I didn't feel like cooking last night, so we had burgers and sweet potato fries instead. One good thing, my DH went to the store and bought me some Schar gluten-free buns. It was my first time trying them and they were pretty good. I usually just do the burger without a bun or use lettuce wedges. Tonight is meatloaf if I can get my act together. My DH tried some of my leftover gluten-free pasta from Olive Garden and confirmed it tasted just like regular pasta. Since I haven't had gluten pasta for almost a year I wasn't sure, but he confirmed my suspicions.
