I love coming on here and getting ideas! I just grabbed 2 ideas for my menu for next week! So thanks!

Mon-We had meatloaf, mostly because DH got The Perfect Meatloaf pan thingie as a joke gift from his Capt. So I gave it a try last night, and that thing is GREAT!
Tues-beef pasta & french bread
Wed.-hamburgers & chips (easy night due to kids soccer game)
Thurs.-lasagna & garlic bread
Fri.-pizza
Sat.-not sure yet because DH will be working now, and when I planned the menu he was not...so it may be a free for all night for me & the boys
Sun.-chicken tacos

Have a good week all!

I haven't been here in awhile. We have been eating at home, just haven't checked in.

Tonight we are having low fat meatball stroganoff with no yolk egg noodles. It'll have mushrooms and peas in it. Might have a small bowl of no sugar added chocolate silk ice cream afterwards.

Alrighty. I usually do this on Sunday nights, but I forgot.

Sunday was Wraps.

Monday (had company) Baked ham, mashes potatoes, steamed carrots, parmesan biscuits, muskoka salad, and strawberry shortcake!

Tuesday -Hamburgers, Salad, baked fries

Wednesday- Breakfast for dinner. Pancakes, Bacon, Eggs, Smoothies.

Thursday - Potato Soup

Friday- Ham dinner leftovers with a salad

Saturday- Homemade Pizza.

Sunday I will have to grocery shop again. I didn't buy any meat this week other than the ham so we'll need a few things.

I'm going to make a potato soup this week too. I haven't made it before. It's called baked potato soup. I'm going to give it a try.

That is what we make too. Our version calls for sour cream, milk and cheese so I try to use a low fat version of all of them. It a great recipe for making a large amount at one time. And it's hearty enough that with a salad everyone is full

Tonight I tried a new recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks (the book is called "Appetite for Reduction"). The recipe was Mushroom-Canellini Bean Paprikash served over mashed cauliflower (with one little potato added that I happened to have left over). The "Paprikash" was made with onions, garlic, wine, vegetable broth, lots of mushrooms and a can of canellini beans, seasoned with smoked paprika and thyme, and all cooked down and mashed slightly to make a thick sauce. This is served over the mashed cauliflower. Really, really good and perfect for a cold and stormy day like today.

Tomorrow I think it will be bean chili and vegan cornbread.

Last night turned out to be "one of those nights", both DH and I got home late from work and were too tired to cook. But instead of grabbing take out (which is what I really wanted to do!), we found stuff to eat at home. I had a frozen french onion soup and he threw together some chicken and pasta. I'm really glad we did, I would have been so mad at myself if we bought food!

Well, we wiffed last night. I got home from work and wasn't feeling all that great and was frustrated about some other things so my husband rounded us all up and got us out of the house. We ended up eating a fairly modest - but nice - meal at a local pub that came in under $50. Not all that terrible, and at least I didn't have to clean up!

When we got home I started soaking beans right away for soup since tonight is a basketball night. Originally it was going to be kale and beans, but I just want something simple instead. I've got a box of medhu vada (little "donuts" made of lentil flour - so gluten-free) in the freezer so I'll get those out for dipping.

Even though I'm not even dressed yet for work, it's nice to know that there's a dinner plan!

What's a zucchini plank? Sounds interesting - and maybe a good thing to help use up summer squash excess!

Must have been something in the air last night. Local pizza place was having customer appreciation night. So 3 large pepperoni pizzas came to less than 15 bucks. Made a salad and had dinner with my sister and our family. There's leftovers for lunches today. Could have been way worse on the budget, but I still don't like deviating from the menu plan when we have a trip we're saving for.
