Default What's for dinner?

And include your recipe please!!!!

Tonight we're having chili!

2 pounds extra lean ground beef
2 large cans mixed beans
2 celery stalks
1 large green pepper
1/2 large red onion
10 sliced mushrooms
1/2 large head cabbage
1 large can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1-2 tsp chipoltle chili powder
5 T chili powder
fresh cracked black pepper

cook beef, chop all veggies and add to pot. Add rinsed beans, tomato sauce, tomato paste and all spiced. Cook. Eat

One cup is roughly 245 calories. 6.1 grams of fat and 31.9 grams of protein.

Mmmmmmm, your chili sounds amazing.

I got creative today. I made soup, it's simmering now.

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup chopped baby carrots (diced full sized carrots would be fine)
1 large onion chopped
1 cup green veggie of your choice (I used sugar snap peas) chopped if needed
2 small potatoes diced (mini potatoes, or 1 regular sized)
1 tsp. garlic minced (a shake of garlic powder would work too)
1 tsp black pepper
6 cups water
1 can tomato sauce
1 bay leaf (not necessary)
1/2 cup whole grain of some sort, brown rice, barley, quinoa, whatever you'd like
2 bullion cubes, beef, chicken or vegetable, or 1 package veggie soup mix (I used Knorr)

heat oil in large pot, chop and add veggies to pot, add garlic and pepper. cook 5 minutes. Add water, bullion cubes, tomato sauce and bay leaf. Put on low heat, add whichever grain you are using. simmer partially covered for 2 hours.

Feel free to add more veggies, or some protein. This was a fly by the seat of my pants recipe.

Chicken Strips

Ingredients:
6 oz. Tyson (or another brand**) Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (raw); cut lengthwise into 5 strips
1/2 cup Fiber One cereal
1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original
1/4 tsp. Lawry's Garlic Salt
pepper (to taste)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Add Garlic Salt and pepper to crumbs. Place crumbs in one small dish and Egg Beaters in another. Next, coat raw chicken strips with Egg Beaters and then with crumb mixture. Place strips on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Spray a light mist of nonstick spray on top of strips and place in oven. Cook for 10 minutes, and then turn strips over. Add another light mist of nonstick spray and cook for an additional 8 - 10 minutes (until chicken is fully cooked and Fiber One looks crispy).

Mine was very simple:

2 slices ww bread
a scrape of garlic mayonnaise on each
2 oz ham cut off the bone
1/2 oz cheddar

Sandwiched. Toasted in one of those bags you can put in a toaster.
Lovely. Tastes so decadent. About 200 calories I think. Had 'American Salad' with it - rough cut cabbage and peppers from the supermarket.

Veggie pizza -- I posted my method on my 3FC blog here.

We had a big sack of green beans in our CSA box this week, so I'll make green bean salad to go with it. That's just green beans, tomatoes, basil, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. I've been boiling the green beans, but tonight I'm going to try microwaving for a couple of minutes and then roasting them. That will keep more of their nutrients intact and I'm guessing they'll be tastier, too.

Tonight I was alone for supper (very, very rare, in fact, I'm not sure it has ever happened since I got married 12 years ago).

I had a GINORMOUS salad--in one of my medium sized mixing bowls, no less!

Spinach, tomato, cucumber, green pepper, mushroom. Then I measured out 4oz of leftover cooked chicken breast from last night (seasoned with rosemary and garlic) and tossed it together with a tablespoon of Paul Newman's Own Italian dressing. Oh, and after a few bites I sprinkled on some Parmesan. (Maybe 1/2 a teaspoon, at most).

I am full.
