The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Stir-fry! I probably eat stir-fries 4-5 days per week, and they're always different! Last night was broccoli, carrots, celery, onion, peanuts, chickpeas, quinoa and sweet chili sauce (the Thai kitchen brand). Tonight I'm going to experiment...chicken and pineapple with rice cooked in coconut milk (I've had this can forever and want to use it), veggies, hot peppers and maybe some curry? A sweet and spicy kind of deal? I'm always throwing everything I have in a pan, it's usually tasty :D

When I don't feel like cooking it's popcorn or bacon for me as well, sometimes my peanut butter cookies (which are dangerous, my boyfriend and I will eat a whole pan because they are so flippin' good!) :ph34r:

Dinner - Homemade chicken and rice soup, two slices of Udi's bread toasted and flourless peanut butter cookies. Maybe an apple or Clementine later.

Lunch was the same except I had some Glutino pretzels to go with the soup. I had a colonoscopy this morning so am taking it easy on food today, which sure beats yesterday's liquid diet...and the colon prep (we won't even go there)!!! ph34r.gif

Don't you all feel that we need to compile a cook book...? smile.gif

YES!!! Actually I have printed out a lot of recipes, some of which are already in a 3-ring notebook. At the rate I'm going, I think I need to pick up a larger one. I bought dividers but, of course, haven't done a thing with them yet. That sounds like a good new year's project for the dead of winter. Sheesh, if feels like the dead of winter already here in Pennsylvania but I know I shouldn't complain too much compared to those of you in the upper Midwest and elsewhere.

Tonight's dinner...smoked pork chops, cabbage, potatoes and carrots. Leftovers, too, which will reappear some time this weekend. And right now I'm eating a pear.

Yesterday I made Morrocan chicken and rice. I didn't feel like cooking tonight. I had a bowl of popcorn while watching a movie with hubby. Hubby ate some leftover morrocan chicken.

Pork chops marinated in Worchesttshire (sp?) sauce , garlic & pepper. Cheese bread sticks. Red pep, onion, carrots, green beans stir fried with garlic and a bit of tamari soy sauce. Oldest picky son said make this veg more often. Younger, less picky one said it was fine as long as I didn't make him eat the red peps. I said "Yeah!"

Very simple... a burger with no bun. Seasoned verrrrry well though, it tasted extra awesome!


Docs said it was depression, which was in my case code for, "It's all in your head."

I replied (in my head, alas) with expletives that I don't think are allowed on here. xD

Tonight for dinner I went gluten free AND Vegetarian. I sauteed some onions and fresh garlic in olive oil, added some sliced mushrooms, then a veggie mix I found in the freezer case (Broccoli, green beans sliced thin, carrot sticks, kidney beans, black beans and navy beans all in one) added about a cup or so of that and then some fresh spinach at the end. Some herbs and some chili flakes. I made brown rice pasta and mixed it in with this delish veggie mix and a wee bit of olive oil. Topped with grated parmesan reggiano cheese. Took 10 min to make too...!! :P Awesomeness in a bowl.
