For you newbies....this is a thread where we share what we're having for dinner in hopes to inspire others to try new things and give new ideas.

Today we're having pecan crusted chicken tenders, summer veggie gratin, and a green salad. Dessert is still up in the air, but I'm thinking it'll be some sort of yogurt pie.

08-18-2008, 12:00 PM
Salmon filets and ratatouille.
Fudgesicle for dessert if I don't eat it earlier. I am determined to only have one today.

08-18-2008, 12:03 PM
per dh we are having baked chicken breast and lots of veggies

08-18-2008, 12:06 PM
Now that the BBQ is working again - Duh! out of propane _ I will do a skewer of pork tenderloin, red pepper and onion and have it with green beans and tomatoes from the garden. The peppers and onions are from the garden too but I didn't grow the pig. Maybe in my next Life. :lol:

Chicken breat or Turkey burgers with Steamfresh veggies

08-18-2008, 01:54 PM
It was going to be WW Pasta with Pesto Sauce, but I decided to have some All-Bran crackers at lunch, and already had a WW english muffin at breakfast (which is 2 servings), so no pasta for me tonight.

Maybe I'll steam some shrimp and vegetables.

08-18-2008, 02:08 PM
we are having chili tonight with kidney and pinto beans, onions, extra lean ground beef, and chili seasonings with a little bit of ff sour cream on top, and green tabasco.

08-18-2008, 02:47 PM
Pizza soup: homemade tomato broth with stewed tomatos (no sugar), tomato paste(no sugar of course) and diced tomatos, sliced broccoli, cauliflower, sliced olives, onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, lean ground beef, low fat mozzarella and low fat ricotta.

We're eating out tonight, but I wanted to share that I made the summer veggie gratin last night from the Phase 2 side dish recipes. I kept the potatoes (2 really small ones) but substituted pecans for the cornbread. It was SO GOOD!!! Yummy, Yummy recipe!!!

Baked Falafel, tzatsiki sauce (cucumber/yogurt/mint/lemon) whole wheat pita, salad. Berries for dessert.

08-19-2008, 12:24 PM
hmac, I'm glad you liked the vegetable gratin dish. It was a big hit when I took it to a potluck this summer!

Tonight we're having Chicken Satay Stir-Fry, which I just posted the recipe for in Phase II meals. It could be easily modified for phase 1 as well.

08-19-2008, 12:51 PM
tzatziki sauce is my mouth is watering just thinking of it! I use it to dip any veggy, as a salad dressing and on meats. My best girlfriend is Greek and she created a monster in me when she introduced me to Greek foods.

Leftover grilled chicken made into a chicken salad. I think I'll throw together some sort of cold bean salad as well.

08-19-2008, 01:10 PM
chicken and sausage gumbo with okra, candystriped beet salad and bleu cheese salad, and chocolate pecan pie.

08-19-2008, 10:40 PM
Tonight we had dinner out at Salsaritas... Normally I would have had a regular vegetarian burrito but I was fabulous and had a garden salad with all the burrito stuffings except rice! Black beans, lettuce, tomatoes, guac, olives, green salsa, cheese, and cilantro- YUMMY! didn't miss my burrito much at all! also, before we went had a few roasted chic peas just to hold my cravings back!

08-19-2008, 11:23 PM
Tonite I had grilled chicken and brocolli.

08-20-2008, 10:28 AM
Just have to say...stir-fry is not the best choice for pregnant lady!! LOL. I was STARVING two hours after eating, even with the brown rice. Hm.

Tonight is church dinner night, we're having taco salad. Mmmm. Which I've been fantasizing about for two days.

08-20-2008, 11:53 AM
I will be experimenting with a skillet eggplant lasagne with fresh basil. I've got lots of eggplant and cottage cheese I need to use up.
Steamed broccoli on the side.

08-20-2008, 12:36 PM
Last night we had sirloin steaks with steamed broccoli and cauliflower YUM. And tonight is taco salad.

no kidding, eh?

I have the same problems.....I find that I can't eat much at a sitting either. I tend to eat one small portion with dinner and then another small portion a few hours later. That along with a glass of milk keeps me full for the rest of the night and out of the snack cabinet.

I have no idea what we're having for dinner tonight as we're going to my Aunt's for dinner. I do know that chocolate cake is somewhere on the menu though. It's Dad's birthday, so I guess I can make an exception :)

For breakfast this morning, we had a scramble of eggs, tomatoes, peppers, onions, jalapenos, black beans and adzuki beans. Topped it with a little fresh salsa and sour cream. It was awesome and soooooo filling. DH and I could have split a portion.

WW pasta and tom. sauce, chicken sausage, broccoli, and a glass of chianti!

08-20-2008, 12:57 PM
Zeff, I was like that for awhile, not able to eat much at one time. Maybe she has shifted because I don't feel like that right now. I imagine it will come back though! Baby Libbie is 3 1/2 lbs and still getting bigger!

08-20-2008, 02:40 PM
Leftovers tonight, I have 12 bean soup that needs to be cleaned up with a side salad. Probably an apple with pb for dessert.

08-20-2008, 03:13 PM
Last night was grilled peppercorn pork tenderloin, grilled asparagus and roasted cauliflower. Tonight is going to be lean steak, i'm going to try roasting some kale, green beans and tossed salad. Breakfast cheesecake with cool whip and sf strawberry preserves for dessert.

08-20-2008, 05:31 PM
Just thought I would post my lunch since I found it so delicious!
I had tofu shiratake(sp) noodles with a little tofu and lots of green beans. 1tbs peanut butter with tamari and sariracha hot chiloi sauce and a tsp or sesame oil. YUM- but addictive, I ate way too much- but I did manage to put half away for lunch tomorrow, or possibly dinner depending on what df will eat tonight!

08-20-2008, 11:42 PM
I just made homemade spaghetti sauce (there was only one sugarless sauce at the store, so I figured I'd make it myself with the abundance of tomatoes from my garden!!) to make crockpot (noodleless) lasagna. YUM!! Tomorrow night's supper is ready to go!

08-21-2008, 12:42 AM
I had a chicken breast fried in about 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil with Cajun Seasoning and spinach.

It was very yummy!


08-21-2008, 12:58 AM
I made chili tonight with 1 can great white northern beans(kidney beans are too tough for my taste) 2 cans diced tomatoes and about 1/2 a bag of crumbles by morningstar. along with spices it wasw delicious! a little warm still for chili but hey, it sounded good!

08-23-2008, 06:20 PM
Well, I decided to do a little experimenting outside of my box with tofu- I eat tofu all the time but its always asian... so I decided I would make tofu parmesan!!! It was delicious! and filling! Perfect with a large salad.

I took my block of tofu and sliced about 1/3 in slices and put them in a pan with some EVOO and garlic and browned each side a bit. then I sprinkled one side with parm, flipped and cooked enough to brown the parm then sprinkled on other side and cooked the same way. It turned out great! TO be sure I was being sbd friendly I made my own yummy pomodoro sauce. I took a can of petit diced tomatoes, clove of garlic, pinch of pepper, about 8 basil leaves chopped and made my sauce. IT WAS A GREAT MEAL! Almost felt like cheating LOL

No time to cook so I'm throwing together a Caprese salad (, deviled eggs, and assorted raw veggies.

08-23-2008, 07:30 PM
I was craving a good old BLT, and made my own SBD friendly version. I put a slice of crispy bacon on a romaine lettuce leaf with some chopped tomato and avocado and rolled it all up. It was so yummy that I had 3 of them, with no cheating and no guilt! ;)

08-24-2008, 05:36 PM
