Wednesday night we got a family dinner from our favorite italian restaurant using a groupon.

Last night we had burgers with fries and fruit.

Tonight is steak with potato pancakes, salad, and applesauce.

I made crock pot BBQ riblets the other night with broccoli slaw. Today was crock pot Swiss steak. We are having another Fiesta (it's where we each bring a dish) at my Spanish class Wednesday and I am going to be making my Chilies Rellenos.

Going into the weekend I am worried out of my mind! My oldest DD has been sick for the last few weeks and has a golf ball sized lymph node on her left side of her neck. One of her blood tests came back elevated so we are going to go see a surgeon this week to get a biopsy. I am thinking they are going to have to sedate her for this? She's only 13. My kids have had the worst luck with illnesses. My youngest had her gall bladder out last July at age 7. All we can do is pray for the best.

Besides all this mess, one of my classes got cancelled so I had to scramble to pick up a new one. Fun!

I'll keep your daughter and you in my thoughts and prayers. That is scary! Hopefully it isn't anything serious.

Hi everyone. I just found this board, and I can definitely use help with dinner ideas!

No clue yet what's for dinner tonight, but just so I can contribute something last night was tilapia, pearl couscous and edamame.

The night before I made Emeril's linguine with clam sauce, which I've only made a few times, but it's such a hit with the family I should really make it more often. The only thing I do differently is that I add a whole can of minced clams with the juice instead of just clam juice.

Prayers said for your daughter. It's normal for the blood work to elevate with infection in the node, so I will be praying that that is all it is. I'm sure it's very scary to have to wait though.

Prayers for the 13 yr old!

Last night's crockpot Tandoori chicken was a great success. The kid's wouldn't touch it (didn't expect them to) and there were five breasts cooked, so DH and I are going to have the leftovers tonight...perhaps over rice...and save the spaghetti bolognese for dinner tomorrow night.

DH and I made mini crullers this morning to bring to a potluck event tonight and they are DELICIOUS!!

Sending good thoughts for you and your daughter tinkmom2.

I just did a giant grocery shop. I went in without a list because we were out of most things and came out $260 poorer
There were great deals on meats this week so I did end up stocking up quite a bit.
So here's what I am thinking so far..

Sat.. Homemade Nachos and Broccoli on the side (have some I need to use)
Sunday.. dinner at my parents
Monday.. Spaghetti Pie
Tuesday.. Pork Chops, Asparagus, Carrots, Baked Potato
Wednesday..Wraps and salad
Thursday.. Leftovers or breakfast for dinner..it's basketball night.
Friday... Chicken or Veggie Burgers, Fries, Salad
Saturday.. Easter Dinner with my family
Sunday.. Easter Dinner with dh's family.

3 nights that I don't have to cook this week!

Meatloaf tonight (making regular and a mini turkey for DS15 who stopped eating all meat except poultry 8 years ago. He found out where it all came from and that was the end of that), with potatoes and carrots.

DW mentioned making sauce for tomorrow so I think I'm off the hook for cooking . We will have pasta, sauce, salad and bread. Not sure if she's doing meat or no meat. Don't really care when someone cooks for me

Sounds good! I've never made a spaghetti pie. Do you have a recipe or just throw it together?

I'd say the recipe I use is close to this one. We do put some olive oil in the pasta and we make sure to cover the noodles with the sauce or they get dry and crunchy on the edges and the kids don't like it that way. Ours has a layer of cottage cheese as well.

Actually now that I looked a little, the recipe is more like this one..http://www.kraftcanada.com/en/recipe...es-111382.aspx

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone Wednesday, the day we meet with the surgeon, won't come fast enough!

We had Tilapia tonight with mashed potatoes that had cheese and cream cheese in them. I am going to make some corn flake peanut crusted chicken tomorrow and make some wraps out of them. (I might keep this dish for Wednesday since I have to fry up some chilies rellenos for my Spanish class.) I don't want to waste oil.
I don't plan on going grocery shopping this week and am getting out of Easter cooking because we are going away for the night to Key Lime Cove water park in Gurnee.
