Tonight is a Fajita Salad. Pretty much using left over Chicken Fajitas (chicken, peppers, and onions), heating it up, and making a salad using it. Lettuce, tomatoes, corn, black beans, tortilla strips, and a dressing made of Salsa mixed with Bolthouse Farms Yogurt based Ranch.

I really like this thread because you guys seem to eat "normal" food. I have three kids and do the best I can but I'm no gourmet cook .

Tonight - pick your own leftover from the fridge
Wednesday - Amazing Chicken, Rice and Green Beans
Thursday - Hamburger Soup
Friday - Sausage Balls for dinner (can't decide what to put with those)
Saturday - Smothered pork chops

So, last night we had pasta with tomato sauce and lots of added veggies (onions, red peppers, mushrooms) with falafel on the side. My son has decided that falafel is a good substitute for meatballs!

Tonight I am doing oven-roasted vegetables (parsnips, onions, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and mushrooms) with some seitan in barbecue sauce, and I am planning to make a chocolate-blueberry-almond "crisp" for dessert.

Tomorrow I am planning a spinach salad with orange sections, pomegranate seeds and almonds, with baked beans and onions.

Thursday will be chickpea-spinach-tomato curry.

Not sure yet about Friday... I have a lot of carrots at the moment so maybe something to use them up. I also have a large head of cabbage. Hmm- coleslaw?

I put some chicken and dumplings in the crock pot this morning when I got home from work...the smell was heavenly when I got up! Just pulled some rolls out of the oven. I may be a useless blob by the time I get back to work tonight!! Carbalicious!

We had tacos made with ground turkey and all the toppings. It was really good. We haven't had tacos in a long time.

I have no idea what happened to my homemade pizza dough last night. Last time I made it, it was fabulous.
Last night it was thin, hard and crunchy. My seven year old said "It's ok mom, it's just like eating pizza on a cracker!" trying to make me feel better.

Oh well.

YUM! I love swordfish. I have never cooked it myself though. Maybe I will have to give that a try.

I absolutely love this thread. I have gone at least 8 days without ordering out for dinner or going out. We have some gift certs we got for Xmas so we will be dining out this week though. I love the ideas I have gotten from this thread. I even pulled my bread maker out of the cabinet and made bread over the weekend and have used it for lunch sandwhiches this week. Here's dinner plans:

Mon: Sloppy Joe sliders
Tues: Spaghetti and Meatballs
Wed: Chicken Minetrone Soup
Thurs: Dining out
Fri: leftovers
Sat: Sausage and onions on rolls
Sun: ???????

We are having leftovers tonight. I might make burritos from the taco mix. Haven't decided.

However, I am completely unmotivated this week. Haven't planned my menu and have no idea what to make.

We haven't eaten out yet, which is the good news!

So far we had:
Mon-BBQ chicken, noodles, corn
Tues-Lasagna,salad (thanks Mom for that one)

and here I sit at work trying to come up with a plan for tonight...ugh, suggestions??
