I had left over Masa and tamale meat from my tamale making frenzy so I made a tamale pie. I made it in a 4x4 Pyrex dish and added the left over tamale sauce to the top with cheese.

Today we went out my DH and I for a Groupon lunch at this really neat local brewery. Tonight I am making this Lo-mein type noodle dish for dinner. The one I tried was vegetarian but I may add shrimp.

Tomorrow we have New Years eve dinner just the DH, kids and I. I am making grape jellied meatballs, shrimp, raw beef and onions, and a host of other things. I know I will be on here lol but if not, Happy New Year!

I just love a healthy eating plan that allows you a patty melt and fries!

Wednesday: Buffalo chicken (tenders or grilled?)
Thursday: left over chicken
Friday: pizza
Hi just wondering how you make your buffalo sauce? I love it when we are at WDW but it isnt common here and I'd love to try making my own but then I thought it might be bottled (like ketchup)
If you have recipe I'd love to give it a go

Sorry, I just used bottled sauce.
For chicken fingers, I am going to use this recipe:
http://www.canyoustayfordinner.com/2...ffalo-chicken/
For grilled chicken, I'll use this one:
http://www.plainchicken.com/2011/04/...o-chicken.html

One of may family friends makes buffalo wings by frying the wings and then tossing in a buffalo sauce which consisted of a bottle of frank's hot sauce and a stick of melted butter. That was for a big batch of wings (3-4 pounds) so you'd have to adjust the amount accordingly.

I was wondering how you make your Ranch Pasta Salad?

I could have eaten the whole pan, and my sister (who is 14 and doesn't eat anything) loved them
Last night I made chili and it was fantastic. Also found the recipe on pinterest. I'd never made chili before. We sent some home with my pregnant friend, and there should be enough for chili cheese burgers when my boyfriend comes! home from his long shift today.

Tonight was going to be left over chili with baked potatoes, but he'd rather have chili cheese burgers, so I'm going to make some potato salad for him so they don't go to waste. I like this, lol.
Love,love,love pinterest!!! I just made awesome cheesy chicken lasagna from a recipe I found there. I have quite a few more pinned to try. Can't wait! :banana

Last night our plans changed and we ended up eating out after doing our grocery shopping.

Tonight we are having an open house with appetizers and pizza. Tomorrow is the traditional New Year's dinner at my Grandma's house.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year

NY Eve I made potato skins for lunch http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/potato_skins/ They really turn out awesome but it's not necessary to bake the skins for 20 minutes after they have been scooped out, 10 minutes is plenty of time for them to crisp up. I even started cooking them last night (baked the potatoes and scooped them out) and finished cooking today,

Tonight I am making lasagna then we will head over to a friends house for party. I am bringing meatballs and a platter of pepperoni. Had to make use what was in the house since I can't go shopping until Tuesday.

Sunday - Breakfast is spinach quiche that I made. Lunch is leftover meatloaf and dinner is up in the air yet.

Monday - Dinner is tater tot casserole from the Duggars Recipe.

Tuesday - BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Wed - DH Birthday, he still hasn't told me if I am cooking for him or we are going out

Thurs - Grilled chicken breast with romaine salad over warm rice. Went to someone's house whose DH owns a restaurant and she served this salad. I love the idea of adding the rice.

Fri - I am getting tired of my homemade pizza dough so I will buy some at the pizza place.

We decided to go grocery shooting today to get us through until Wednesday I have a drs app then and the store is right down the road so there was no point in driving all that way back to back days.
So far we spent 91$ out of 160$ not too bad
Tonight we have a gift card and are going out to feng for sushi

Sunday hot dogs, salad and beans
Monday chicken tacos and rice
Tuesday pulled pork
Wednesday spaghetti with sauce

Happy new year everyone!

I plan about 10 days in advance mostly to prevent us from arguing about what to have for dinner and to keep us from getting bored with the same few meals.

Sat--NyEve--junk food extravaganza--nachos, pepperoni, spinach dip, olive dip, Mac and cheese and chocolate fondue--and champagne for Mom!
Sun--roasted chicken, stove top stuffing, frozen peas
Mon--turkey enchiladas (picked up a big turkey thigh for super cheap after Thanksgiving and it's in the freezer)
Tue--eggplant rollatini
Wed--baked ham, pineapple dressing, string beans
Thu--London broil, baked potatoes, tossed salad
Fri--pasta & white beans with broccoli pesto sauce
Sat--takeout--the kitchen will be out of commission
Sun--we are taking a chocolate walking tour (Xmasgift) so I don't think we'll be hungry for a real dinner--snacks or sandwiches
Mon--bean soup with the ham bone from Wed
