Pigletto, have you ever frozen your dough for future use? I'd love to have a handful of Pixza doughs in mine.

I was proud of myself last night - I was supposed to throw a crock pot meal together in the morning, but was running a bit behind schedule and didn't get it done. DD had softball tryouts so it was going to be a late night, and I was soooo tempted on the way home to stop - but we DIDN'T, we went home and had leftovers!!

Sunday was Meatloaf, instant mashed, corn before kids went home to their dads
Monday was Pastrami sandwich for Hubs and Tilipa, rice and sauteed zuchinni for me
Tonight is leftover baked beans, hotdogs and toast
Wednesday is a Chz Burger for Hubs and Tilipia, tater tots and steamed broccoli for me
Thursday is Mock Chicken Parm using leftover homemade ranch chicken nuggets and the leftover baked spaghetti and leftover garlic bread
Friday is late date night - we signed up to make Team Dinner for the HS Ice Hockey team then we'll go when our part of the dinner/clean up is done
Saturday is Steak tips, Loaded baked, Corn
Sunday is grocery shoppping day and when the kids come back home so we'll see what we end up with.
This is my first time reading this thread and I am so happy I did. What great idea. Now I am quoting you because I was hoping you could direct me to the Baked Spaghetti Recipe you mention. TIA

As for me and DH...

Yesterday I made hamburgers and hashbrowns.

We were thinking of going out tonight to use one of the certificates we got for XMAS instead, I am making

italian sausage over pasta.

I will look through these posts to see what we shall have for the rest of the week.

Hi I don't know how to post a link but it is in the top post on page 15 .. but here is the recipe Oh and Welcome aboard!

Baked Spaghetti Casserole

12 oz spaghetti
1 (28 ounce) jars prepared spaghetti sauce
1 lb lean ground beef
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic, minced
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

In a skillet, brown the ground beef until cooked through; drain fat and stir in spaghetti sauce. Set aside.

Cook spaghetti according to directions on packet. Drain and place cooked spaghetti in bowl. Add cream cheese, Italian Seasoning and minced garlic. Stir until cream cheese is melted and the spaghetti is thoroughly coated.

Lightly grease a 9x13" pan. Spread a small amount of meat sauce in the bottom of the dish. Put spaghetti on top of sauce and top with remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.

Bake for 30 minutes, until bubbly.

Well, tonight would normally be one of those nights where I fall into old habits and get fast food (bad for both the "eat at home" target AND the new healthy lifestyle). My boyfriend is sick so I will now be home for dinner... and without a plan. Luckily, I have some left overs so I will heat those up tonight!

So tonight will be:
Baked Chicken Parmesan
Spaghetti
Garlic Bread (made with a hamburger bun with butter and garlic powder and then broiled)

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

The thread has me sitting at my desk thinking of what I will make the rest of the week and next!

Maybe mexican chicken or shrimp with broccoli and stewed tomatoes.

Boy am I hungry

Tonight was Mac & cheese, fish sticks & mixed veggies, still using up the pantry & freezer. This thread has kept me on track this week, I've had a cold, no energy & no menu plan but am still plugging away at eating at home.

That's a good question. The other night was the first time I made it.
I'd love it if I could, because it would be a really easy week night supper! But making it at dinner time and needing the 45 minutes of rise time makes it unlikely that we will. By the time I'm done working, it's 5, sometimes 6pm and too late to start the process.

Have not eaten out since 1/2!

Had soup and grilled ham and cheese tonight

Beef with snow peas and jasmine rice tomorrow night

then...husband and I are going to try a juice fast. A friend recommended we watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on netfllix....basically these people lose massive amounts of weight juicing fruits and vegetables for all meals, and that is all they consume for x amount of days. Not sure how long we will last, especially since I work night shift, can't imagine not "eating" all night.....

but we still have the kids, so I ideas of what to make them:
tacos x 2 nights
ravioli
grilled chicken
steak

I'm really not sure how this is going to pan out, we shall see.

My new favorite easy at hone dinner is a rotisserie chicken (on sale at Target today for $3), Stove Top stuffing, and refridgerated mashed potatoes. Makes enough for plenty of leftovers, too!

We pick them up from Costco a lot. Throw a few sides with it and voila, dinner is served!
