Stinky6...I know where I'd spend my paycheck...  :yes:

I buy a lot of spices from Penzy's but only once or twice a year--not that mileage-wise they're far from me, time-wise (traffic), they are.  So I go with a list but usually forget something!  One of my friends uses their seasoning to make turkey sausage and raves about it.  I may put that on my list for the next trip.

1 lb. ground beef?  Greek Skillet Dinner:  http://www.copykatchat.com/tried-true/51287.htm  Ummm...may add this to next week's dinner rotation.

I had planned on Lemon Chicken this week...that became Teriyaki Beef Stir-Fry which was a hit.  I never measure so stir-fries are a hit or miss with DS.  Other than that, the leftover routine is working well this week.   ;D
DS - PA, TNA, chick peas (outgrew sesame seeds)


Sunday - Chipotle for the menfolk, dinner out with my Mommy & Me buddies for me (next month is our 21st anniversary! - we all met when our kids were 3 months old, LOL).
Yesterday - breaded chicken cutlets with the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers - squash, stuffing, mashed and sweet potatoes, plus some sauteed chard.
Today - Tortellini with sauteed tomatoes, broccoli and mushrooms, salad.
Tomorrow - Something fish, baked potatoes, salad.
Thursday - Bean/cheese burritos, salad.
Friday - Pizza!

ETA:  The "something fish" and baked potatoes was replaced by this:

I am trying to get on the ball, again...

Tonight was tortellini and sauce w/broccoli
Monday - black beans and rice (The beans soaked and cooked today - extra yummy tomorrow)
Tuesday -veggie burgers/potatoes/salad
Wednesday - chicken fajitas w/black beans and rice as sides
Thursday - left overs (who are we kidding - black beans and rice...)
Friday - whatever the h3!! they make themselves - I'm going out of town for the weekend ;D

Trying to make things that dh and I can take to lunch once or twice so we're not always doing sandwiches and fruit or canned soups

i sort of cheat with my veggie curry...
I pick good veg like potato, something starchy , and also use a tin of beans, like chick peas ( obviously allergic son doesnt eat this meal, he has homemade pizza) and other left over, slightly limp veg from the back of the fridge, but dont tell my family this.... :hiding:

I get the veg chopped first.
so,  oil in pan, heat, and pop in  the whole cumin seeds and cardamon seeds, once they are dancing in pan,  then throw in veg, add other spices, like tumeric, garram massala or madras curry paste.

my secret is ........shhhh......tinned tomato soup,..... ;)  and creamed coconut.......
then of course its friday night, and i cant help but open a glass of wine, and let it all simmer for while....if i remember to check it, all goes well. but its so easy to  forget...... 

anyway, I serve it with white rice if ,  and to be totally frank here,  our family bowels are working nicely. Or brown rice, which takes forever to cook, but has a nicer taste and does scrap the insides rather well... :misspeak:.

  if i can find the  dried raisins  from the back of the larder i throw them in the rice as well.   which often helps if i have overdone the strength of the curry....

must confess to be tempted to buy some gee from asda, but gosh, its  rather bad for the old ticker iyswim.

anyway, good luck with this recipe, your gonna need it!
