Default What's for dinner, dreaming of spring 2010

The winter thread is closed and I don't see a new one yet. I was about to say "please merge if there is one" and realized I could do that (you know, if I'd read all the info and actually knew what I was doing!)

I love this thread. It encourages me try add new meals every week and avoid the dreaded dinner rut.

Tonight I'm making 13 bean soup with Trader Joe's veggie sausage, some greens & zucchini from the dehydrated stash, fire roasted tomatoes and creole seasoning with cauliflower and "Fried" Green Beans with Wasabi Dip on the side. There will be banana blueberry mock coffee cake for dessert.

Cyndi, If Grandpa from HeeHaw were a vegetarian, that's what he would have for dinner, too! I have 15 bean soup with a big ole ham hock on the stove. I have to try the 'fried' green beans.

Monica and Carley came out for the day, so I made regular lasagna for them, and made a mushroom and spinach filled butternut lasagna that I could enjoy. Monica tasted it and actually liked it better than the meat lasagna. I made a big salad to go with it, but didn't get around to making the mock coffee cake I planned. So dessert will be a SF chocolate pudding cup while the rest of the gang has ice cream and Girl Scout cookies.

I had some shrimp scampi, sans breading and salad! I was sooo good with those meatballs in front of me with the pasta!

I think I'm going to have roasted salmon on herby Puy lentils with spinach... It's gorgeously sunny here today and it just feels right.

Tonight was Taco Bake, but once I get that eaten up, I plan to make Black Bean Quesadillas, Macaroni & Cheeses, and Tortellini with Mushrooms and Peas in Creamy Sauce.

Made the Taco Bake with fake meat so everyone else refuses to eat it (IT TASTES GOOD) but the other stuff should get eaten up no problem!

The kids' grandparents treated them to some disgusting fast food tonight, so I made myself a zucchini pancake and Laurie's Turnips with Greens. I love that stuff!

I'm not in SB but my sister and daughter are!

So, for DD, I made a lovely chicken, artichoke crown, cabbage, onion, carrot, asparagus, red kale, garlic and poultry seasoning stew and served it with an assortment of cheeses, baby carrots and cucumber slices on the side.

I bought a turkey kielbasa and I'll make creamy saurkraut to go with it (drain a bag of saurkraut, put in the pan you used to fry up the kielbasa and mix in some low fat or non fat sour cream - it is so good.)
