What's for Dinner...#45
« on: Jun 13, 2016, 08:58:25 AM »
I'm going to resurrect this group of threads.  I think it is fun to know.

For me today I'm doing a pot roast with the little white potatoes, baby carrot, onions in a mixture of chicken broth, beef broth, and dry onion soup.  This should last me a few days which is good.

Glad you did.  I like knowing too because sometimes I think "I'd like to have that."

That sounds good duh.  I like left over roast better than freshly cooked.

Tonight we're having ham, already cooked but I'll put in a hot pan and fry (without oil) for a few minutes, potatoes with squash, green beans.

Tonight I'm having meatloaf and some things to go with. It is one of the last cool mornings to light up my oven.

potatoes with squash... is there a recipe?  That sounds interesting.  I'm having the roasted corn and black bean salad with the roast beef just so I get enough fiber.  I'm light on food today. 

For some reason I over eat one day and under eat on the next.  The dietician wants me to even it out.  I'm trying but I haven't been one hundred percent successful yet.

We had leftover ham, squash and potatoes, and deviled eggs.

I chunked up squash and potatoes, put them in a pot of jut enough to cover them boiling water, cook until fork tender, add butter, salt and pepper.  My mother adds onions to hers.  We love it.

That would give the potatoes more flavor.  I'm going to have to try that.  Which kind of squash do you use.

stouffer's tonight something with chicken and noodles.  It was good but then i wasn't paying much attention.  Tomorrow is the test so I have to stop eating at midnight.  I guess that means it's time to snack while i can.

last night I treated myself and Sharon to dinner at Denny's I had the steak salad and potato soup with extra bacon.  And sharon had a breakfast item.  We had a good day for the most part.  Although she was stuck with me when my neck went and I just say owwwwwww over and over.  i'm not a silent sufferer.

I made a big chicken and noodle casserole to eat over the next few days. I do not like to cook when it's hot.

duh, I only cook the squash and potatoes in the summer and use the straight neck squash from the garden.

Last night we had crock pot roast with potatoes and carrots and slaw.

Tonight we ate at Quincy's.  I had salad, chicken livers and pasta salad.

Since it heated up I've been making cold food for the most part. Hummus and bean dips. Salads and such. Things that go down well and in little bits. I bought crackers and bagels and stuff like that. I have precooked bacon to make into sandwiches. I think we will live.

I had quite a bit of time to know that summer is coming. It helps that I pick up a can or two of beans when there's a special on them. And have a variety of salad fixings in house most of the time. And I keep herbs and spices all of the time.

It is a 'fend for yourself' night. Chip brought home shrimp and he's the only one that eats it. And Chloe and I just finished eating leftovers from last night not too long ago, so we aren't hungry. So Krys just needs to find something for herself. Chloe will eat again before bed, but not a full dinner I'm sure.

I made a balsamic marinade for chicken breasts.  I didn't have any thyme so use marjoram instead.  We'll see how it turns out.  It is another sparkpeople recipe.  It came in my e-mail today when I had taken chicken out to thaw without a plan yesterday, so I'm hoping for serendipity.  I'll have it with green beans.

I got potatoes out of the garden so I made potato salad.  We'll probably just eat a bowl of that.

I had a scoop of potato salad and a scoop of tuna salad for lunch.
I think I will have bean dip with corn chips and cole slaw for dinner. Maybe.

We had to run all the way down to the highway and some chicken from the Deli due to a power outage. It was food.

The balsamic chicken was just food as well.  Their rating system is much more forgiving than I am.  That's going to make finding recipes a real pain.  Now I have 3 more of the chicken breast to eat.
