I"m going to try to come up with a weekly menu like most of you do. Lots of great ideas in this thread!
Welcome! Your dinner sounds great! I have found even if it's just grilled cheese and soup or toast and eggs, as long as I planned it ahead of time we don't get take out or go to a restaurant. Saves us at least 60 every time.
Now I actually plan to eat out instead and it makes my wallet much happier. More money for our trip!

Last night I ended up staying later at work since we were crazy busy. I was too tired to cook so I picked up Boston Market with a coupon.

Tonight is going to be pot roast with carrots, celery, and potatoes.

Haven't posted in a long while; but I need to prepare my meals at home more and I need ideas of things to make, so I'm back....

Last night I made Lentil Sloppy Joe in the crock pot, we will eat that tonight. with french fries

Tuesday: Crockpot Country Port Ribs in BBQ Sauce, probably with green beans.

Wednesday: Fend for yourself day, DH bowls and I clean the cat rescue. Its also his day off so I'm sure the ribs will be gone by the time I get home.

Thursday: Rachael Ray's Chicago Dog Salad

Friday: Turkey Cutlets with Prosciutto, rice

Tonight I'm doing what we call 'camping breakfast' for dinner!!!

Cubed pre-cooked potatoes fried with bacon, mushrooms & onions, then make a couple of wells in the mix and break an egg in each. Finish under the grill to cook the top of the eggs then sprinkle on shredded cheese and serve with crusty bread and a good dollop of steak sauce (or HP sauce here in the UK!!!)

I usually do this when we go camping as you may have guessed (easy to cook in one pan), but it's great for using up bits and bobs from the bottom drawer of the fridge!!!

I have been such a slacker lately. DH got sick the day before Thanksgiving & stayed sick for a week. And between Christmas shopping and overtime at work, I haven't been able to slow down. Tonight I sat down and finally planned out our meals for the next 2 weeks.

Tonight: Trader Joe's chicken hot dogs, roasted corn
Tuesday: Christmas party @ work, DS is going to a friend's house
Wednesday: Spicy chopped chicken, roasted salt & vinegar potatoes, garlic green beans
Thursday: Christmas Family Night @ my grandma's assisted living facility
Friday: Date night w/ DH
Saturday: Grilled salmon & roasted asparagus
Sunday: Tuna casserole

Monday: Fiesta Lime Tacos, Spanish rice
Tuesday: Garlic brown sugar chicken, sauteed mushrooms & spinach
Wednesday: Lasagna, salad, garlic bread
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Date night w/ DH
Saturday: DH will grill something, sauteed brussels sprouts w/ pancetta
Sunday: Fish Tacos, sliced avocado

DS usually spends the night with a friend on Friday nights, so Fridays are easy, lol. I am going to do so much better with my meal planning in 2013!

I ended up having a movie night with some girls from work at our house. So we had homemade pizzas and salad. Plus pound cake with fresh berries and whipped cream for dessert.

I am making two pots of Arroz con pollo. One to take to school for a pot luck, and one for my family for dinner tonight. This is my hubbys' favorite dish. http://tinkmomfoodie-foodobsession.b...rroz+con+pollo.

I think I will be getting a A in my Spanish class just because of this dish. Earlier in the semester I made them tamales.

Tonight we had grilled pork chops with homemade German potato salad, and glazed carrots.

Tomorrow night my mom is going to a Christmas Dinner at the rehab facility my grandma is at. I am working so I will have leftovers or something from the freezer when I get home.

DH and I have to go to the viewing/ visitation for a dear friend that died of a sudden heart attack on Monday. He was just 41 years old and left behind a wife and two sons, ages 7 and 12. This will definitely be a tough one. Dinner will be a drive-thru before or after the viewing.
