    Default What's for dinner????

    I am going to try to get my meals planned out better. Will set up a menu system and try for at least soup or salad or both for dinner, and maybe some bread.

    Tonight's offering:
    pork chop
    mashed potatoes and cream gravy
    lima beans
    lettuce and tomato salad

    dessert:
    Christmas cookies

    Tonight will be the first night I&#039;m cooking since I left for Tucson!

    I don&#039;t have an extended plan for the weekend and up coming week. Tonight&#039;s meal will be something out of the freezer no doubt. Whatever I have the side fixins for.

    Just hit Costco and came home with:

    turkey breast
    pork tenderloin
    top round (stirfry)
    chicken breasts

    Not sure how that translates to dinner yet...

    Past two nights were:
    Beef and Broccoli with brown rice
    Beef, peppers, onions and carrots over noodles with peanut sauce (yeah, I know, it&#039;s our &quot;easy out&quot; that everyone will eat.)

    Tonight was sort of a Yakisoba thing with noodles, chicken, peppers, broccoli and carrots...I&#039;m sensing a theme, but DH has been doing most of the cooking, so no complaints from me!

    I&#039;m trying a new bbq chicken recipe in the crockpot tonight. That&#039;s as far as I&#039;ve gotten with this week&#039;s menu list. Need to step that up, some member of the family has something each and every night this week.

    FWIW, Emily (and no, I&#039;m not Zip nor do I play her on tv) I toss my turkey breast into the crockpot. Put some seasonings of choice on it (with us it&#039;s a little fresh cracked black pepper) and let the crockpot do the work. We don&#039;t like turkey that much, so a turkey breast works out great for us.

    :lolcoffee: rskmom!!

    The one I bought this time is pre-marinated, so I was thinking to just toss it in the oven.

    Now I might toss it in the crockpot!

    rskmom:

    Rocky mountain soup uses 2 cans of ranch beans, 1 small can tomato sauce, 4 cups beef broth, 1 pk. of polish sausage (cut into quarters and bite sized pieces), an onion, diced; 2/3 cup instant rice, and garlic to taste.

    brown the sausage (original recipe called for 6 slices of bacon crumpled) , onion and the 2 cloves garlic ; then add the broth (recipe calls for water, I like the beef broth better) beans with juice, tomato sauce, and rice. Salt and pepper to taste.
