Tonight - Crab & shrimp alfredo, steamed broccoli, pineapple.  Maybe some rolls if I'm not feeling totally lazy.



Pull pork sandwiches made in the crock-pot w/homemade buns; broccoli cole slaw and homemade brownies for dessert. Pefect end-of- the-school-week dinner, it's also movie night - DVD of The King's Speech.

Last night: Grilled turkey and cheese, potato soup, pineapple.

Tonight: Slow cooker roast beef, mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, mint chocolate cake.


Last night...so tired on Fridays that its become a pasta & sauce night...did find enough energy to make baked ziti (jarred sauce to boot!), challah, green beans (for DH), lima beans (for DS and me)...nothing in the house to really make a salad or much else fresh!

Tonight...after trip to store...meatloaf (love it, DH will tolerate it, DS won't try it--leftover ziti for him)...mashed potatoes (NOT from scratch--still tired), peas, leftover challah, watermelon (if I have the energy to cut it)...
DS - PA, TNA, chick peas (outgrew sesame seeds)


bacon-wrapped steaks and four cheese bowtie pasta for dinner

and pumpkin dump cake with pumpkin spiced whipped cream for dessert!


tonight, goulash and salad

tomorrow, dinner at mom's  ;D

I want to make chili this week - maybe throw everything into the crockpot....have it with cornbread - yum...

Broiled ham steak, roasted pumpkin, bread, and sliced fresh pears. 

I found a nice sugar pumpkin at the farmers' market, and built the rest of the meal around that.


Holy Moley - made the best and easiest salmon tonight - just had to share.  Usually anything this good is illegal.  ;)

1 1/2 lbs salmon fillets
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
2 Tbsps. Maple Syrup
2 tsps. balsamic vinegar

Place the fillets on a broiling pan skin side up, and bake for 5-6 minutes @ 425.  Whisk together syrup, mustard and vinegar.

Set on broil.

Flip over, salt and pepper to taste.  Brush on glaze, and broil for 3-4 minutes more.

Honestly, it is crazy good and was ready in minutes. 

Served with rice pilaf and asparagus.

I like  the new board and all...but I started this thread!   :tongue:


Chicken and ham casserole, carrots, clementines, and chocolate mint cake.

All of those things start with 'c'...totally coincidental.


I made three dinners tonight for the next day or so:

chicken noodle matzo soup (turkey meatballs)

pulled Kansas City pork (in progress):

spaghetti and sauce from fresh brandywine heirloom and cherokee purple tomatoes (ground turkey):

The kids have had both, and are giving me a hard time about going to bed. They want pork sandwiches too.

actually, youngest is in bed with a fever, but if she knew, she'd have a conniption fit.
just tell me: "Hey, a***ole, you hurt my feelings!"
