What Is/Was For Dinner?

Tonight's dinner was ridiculously unbalanced...Fried cajun shrimp, Checkers french fries and homemade cheddar biscuits. Yeah, I know...Not a real vegetable in sight, but I swear that we don't eat this way very often!

It was chili for supper here. And will probably be breakfast, lunch and dinner tomorrow.

It was a big pot full.

Yesterday I had the last of the chicken soup. :yum3: DH made himself split pea soup. (I'm a grownup now, so I don't have to eat peas. :008Laughing: )

 

Today-- Right now, I have round steak simmering with onions. We'll have that and green beans. I'll have white rice and DH will have mashed potatoes (I can't have milk).

Just wanted a light supper, so bean with bacon soup and some tangerines, that grew in Spain and came via Canada, lol, best citrus I have seen in about three years at my market and I got a box full, so am eating those for snacks every day now. They are perfect and taste really good. No seeds either.

 

Not sure if right ear in involved but achy so not really eating alot, but had pork loin for lunch so though light dinner tonight. Accompanied by tea and tylenol, which seem to be doing the trick. So, staying cozy warm with Miss Macy the kitty who just had her treats for the night and watching A Knights Tale and going to read a while before I snooze. Ugh, is it really going to be Monday tomorrow?

The weather was nice enough to grill today. DH grilled sirloin steaks for supper. I like the flavor the grill gives the meat. :feedme: We had rice and green beans, too.

Pulled out the big crock pot and put in a half pork loin roast that came from my raid on the 5 for $19.99 meat counter, added chunks of potatoes, chunked a sweet onion, opened a bag of my frozen celery (I vacume seal it so it's ready to add to ???), course salt and course pepper, set it for 8 hours, and I'll add a can of tomatoes and a can of carrots when I get home. Heading for the little house again today so it will be nice to walk in the back door and smell supper already done. Had a box of Sarah Lee corn muffins given to us, so we'll have that along with our supper. I nearly always get two meals out of my big crock pot meals.

 

We just had two nice bowls for supper...and yes, it was so inviting to walk in the back door and have supper ready. The aroma's are always so scruptious! LOL Still have enough for supper tomorrow night.

Ribs and sweet potato and macaroni yesterday. Leftover sweet potato for breakfast. Last night, broiled some marrow bones and put them in the slow cooker with the rib bones, half an onion that was looking sad, some shriveling carrots, five and a half mugs of water, and half a mug of vinegar. Probably going to make stew.

I have a meatloaf in the oven for DH's supper today and for sandwiches for his lunch for the week. Also put potaotes to bake in there.

 

I set a little ground beef aside for me. I'll brown it and then put it on top of a plateful of bakedTostitos Scoops. Top that with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

What’s for Supper . . . . . JUST a Simple Salad?

Well we were running late so picked up a Caesar Salad kits while shopping with Amish Friends to have when we got home for Supper, you know the kind lots of lettuce with packets of chees, croutons and Caesar salad mix in the bag as well, we got it on sale for 99 cent.

So we get home and are bet but mix up the Simple Salad to eat but we did add a few things to make it a meal:
Had a tomato left over from making B,L,T’s the night before-
Peppers and onions I had cut up for stir-fry-
Some of my ‘fresh’ mushrooms I use for breakfast-
part of a carrot chopped up and added-
then Lori added a mozzarella cheese stick chopped up-
Half a can of chick peas Michael found in the refrigerator-
some Bacon bits-
Michael remembered his snack bag of sunflowers seeds so we added them too-
and then we said what the heck and shredded up a lemon pepper chicken strip I was going to make a snack chicken sandwich with later on-
To finish it off we added chives and Italian seasonings
And added some more oil and vinegar to make the Caesar dressing go further.

So our “Simple Salad” became a bit more by adding 11 more items we just happen to have on hand plus spices, oil and vinegar!

 

Now THAT’S a meal! LOL

Had a batch of leftover potato soup for lunch and am planning to fix a pizza from scratch for supper. Tuesday's are our pizza night and we usually dine out at Mazzio's humongus pizza/salad bar buffet...but we're trying to lose our holiday pounds so I'm gonna make my own from scratch, even the dough! Haven't done it in years, so here's to pizza ala Philbe!

Set a container of soup out to thaw for DH's supper. It sure is worth is to make a big pan of soup and then freeze some in containers! We haven't been feeling well and I don't feel like cooking. I think I'm just going to have some plain rice as things haven't been feeling like they want to stay down. There's frozen chicken stock and broth in the freezer. I may thaw and mix that in with the rice.

Had another "batch" of the potato soup I cooked & froze, and made up a storage container of potato salad, and then "observed" our pizza night by again making my own pizza. Mountain Man loves it...and I had Mozerella this time! LOL
