Tonight it is baked chicken and zuchinni casserole. Green Beans, corn and cottage cheese.
I may surprise hubby with his new favorite, Sausage and Eggplant Spaghetti... not settled yet. Or maybe Eggplant Soup, really need to use it up... hmm....
I put black beans in the crockpot this morning before work. We're having chili & cornbread.
Tonight--most likely a rehash/leftover from last night, which was good! Tunisian Vegetable Stew, stuffed roasted winter squash, fresh homemade bread.
We tried the Tunisian Stew for the first time last night, and really liked it. It's from the Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home cookbook, and it was fast, flavorful, healthy, and cheap!
Here it is from memory (I hope I got it right!) since it was such a hit:
1.5 c. thinly sliced onion
3 c. thinly sliced cabbage
1 thinly sliced large bell pepper
28 oz canned tomatoes, with juice
15 oz chick peas, drained
.33 c. raisins or currants, optional
salt to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
.5 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp corriander
.5 tsp turmeric
1 tbs lemon juice
Saute onion in oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add cabbage and salt to taste, continue to saute about 5 more minutes. Add bell pepper and raisins, saute 1 more minute. Add spices, chick peas, tomatoes. Stir, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add lemon juice, and more salt, if desired. Serve. Good over rice, or with a nice big slice of fresh bread. Mmmm....
Ah don'ts know tills I gets home and decides. Probably a LOT of red wine and some cheese and crackers. None for hubby, he's in the dog house.
Chili is what we're having too. I may make a pan of cornbread to go with it but then again we may have crackers.
Baked ham (from the store...alas, we're fresh out of home-grown piggie in the freezer), home made potatoes au gratin, and sauteed cabbage (from the garden), and peas.
I made meatballs and sauce in the crockpot. By the time I get home from my daughter's ballet lesson, it should be ready. Then I will make the pasta and some fresh broccoli.
Made a crock pot of chili last night, so it should be cooked down and ready to go tonight......the rest of the family won't care for it......so they will have Chicken and Rice soup that simmered most of yesterday afternoon......add a few more carrots and celery pieces and I can probably get lunch out of it tomorrow too! Chili will last me the rest of the week.....as I am convinced no one else will touch it! Too bad!
meat and potato pies with a gravy sauce
Nachos and guacamole, whenever I can get into the kitchen to make it. Avocados were on sale at the supermarket this weekend.
meatloaf, baked potatoes and either carrots or baked beans.
Ours sound boring compared to everyone elses - but we like it!
Bacon, lettuce & tomato sandwiches on homemade white bread....and LOTS of iced tea.................yum....
Venison and vegetable lo mein (sp) and cinnamon swirl cake for later.
My wife is working the afternon shift, and dad has my kids, and will feed them before I get home, so I wil probably have liver again. I like it so much I usually dont have anything with it.
split pea soup and either cornbread or homemade wheat bread.
Beanpot well-baked beans, home made whole wheat soda bread, organic green salad with raspberry vinaigrette.
apricot dijon pork chops, steamed broccoli, and either rice or potatoes. and maybe some applesauce.
Curried red lentils
Trying to get turmeric into my diet twice a week, its supposed to help reduce the inflammation of arthritis. I'll try almost anything, especially if it involves eating something I like.
