The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

BeFree, that sounds yummy!

I kinda have a hankering for Chinese. So if I can get home in a decent amount of time through the traffic and rain and after I check on my friend's dogs, I think sweet and sour chicken would be tasty tonight. Just got some King Arthur AP gluten-free flour to try, so why not on chicken. If it takes too long to get home, it'll be ground beef (already cooked) and broccoli. Man, I'm hungry.

:)

Were they Ball Park by chance?

Nope, but I'm not saying Ball Park aren't gluten-free. These were all beef with a natural casing and I'll report soon about the brand name because DP wants me to get another box of them. (They're handy for a quick meal.) They were soy free too. :)

Tonight we are finishing up leftovers from this weekend and for tomorrow my little one gets to pick since it is her 2nd birthday!

I asked her want she wanted and she said she wants tanksgivin :)

So tomorrow we will be having turkey, cranberry sauce, smashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing and probably carrots. Now I just need to figure out what to give her for her special birthday breakfast and dessert, but at least dinner is taken care of.

Oh, you just absolutely melted my heart. :) Thanks for sharing. Buckwhheat pancakes with maple syrup & fruit for breakfast? Happy birthday to your little girl!

Thank you:) It's even better in her voice since she is just learning how to talk and has all those adorable little mispronunciations.

We had nuked corn tortillia nachos with shredded asaigo cheese, smoked chicken, fresh sweet peppers and salsa. It took less than 5 minutes to prepare and was tasty. Fit right in with how much I felt like cooking. :D

We're doing St. Patrick's Day in December tomorrow: corned beef in the slow cooker with potatoes and cabbage.

Now that sounds good! I can't remember the name of the manufacturer of the hot dogs, but I bought them in US at a membership store. We had to buy a a box of them but I was hankering for a hot dog, so it worked. We had an adventure with those hot dogs, made slaw dawgs, dogs in the blanket, cheese dawgs, grilled dogs. I guess I left the lettuce wraps for the end, thank goodness.

They were organic and all beef, big help, right? SS, but they might not be availabble in Caanda even if they're ok in the States. :D

I bought another box of them today. The brand is Kayem. They're not organic but are all beef and have a natural casing. Hebrew National are gluten-free too, but they're more expensive. Nathans are gluten-free too, but I haven't tried those. I really like the Kayem brand, just would prefer not to have to buy a box of them. :o

DP Grilled a frozen left over uncooked pig in the blanket last night and was very enthusiastic about how good it was, but he's not always a good indicator. He's pretty happy with everything. (His mom is a horible cook, I love her for that.) :P

Headed to the store to grab some salmon. I'll cook it on the Foreman grill with a little dill and a squeeze of lemon. Sauteed fennel bulb and zucchini, flavored with a little tarragon from the garden. Fresh pineapple for dessert.

I've been meaning to add to this thread for a while, but I'm too lazy to post every night, so here's our menu for the past week:

  • Monday - Corn/Quinoa pasta with pumpkin/italian sausage sauce, steamed broccoli
  • Tuesday - Meatloaf with baked sweet potato fries, peas
  • Wednesday - Hoppin' John with cornbread, braised chard
  • Thursday - Pulled pork tacos with guacamole, pinto beans, corn
  • Tonight - not sure yet - maybe salmon patties and rice with onions

I'm probably going to freeze the corned beef unless the packages says you shouldn't. DP had to leave because his 88 year old father in comotose following a hip operation and they've forgone life sustaining measures.

I'm home with a 12 year old dog that buries everything I give her for food because she's so upset about DP being gone.

So I made pizza. The old dog can't resist Chebe's crust. ;)

So sorry about FIL, Marilyn :( and absence of DP. But so sweet and cute about your doggie.

Thanks mushroom. He's (FIL) a gem than will be missed. Dear old dog is coping, and so am I. She is now only willing to eat off paper plates. DP won't be happy about the new development, but I'm happy she's eating.

Split pea soup with asiago cheese breadsticks.

This sounds so yum! Nice contrast of flavors & textures.

Tonight was vegetarian (as usual):

-Indian ratatouille (a fun fusion dish!)

-Indian-style basmati rice

-grated carrot salad with yellow raisins and toasted cumin seeds

-poached pears with vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce (a contributed dessert : )

Tonight I'm making roast beef and smashed potatoes for my husband and I'm also going to try the flourless chocolate banana cake from Elana's Pantry.

It turned out that I am not the one making the cake tonight, my 5 year old wanted to try and read the recipe and make it for her daddy. I think it's kind of funny that she is learning to read by reading recipes.
