Default What's for Dinner in the spring

I love spring with it's crazy swings from winter to summer weather with brief stops in-between. It can make dinner planning a challenge though

Tonight I'm making a frittata, sweet potato home fries, and side salads. I'll pick the veggie for the frittata when I get to the Co-op. Maybe someone will have early greens?

A frittata sounds pretty good, Cyndi. I haven't made one in a while, and I have the makings for a spinach and feta cheese one. That would go good tonight along with butternut squash fries.

You two are like twins!

I am going to make a steak with steamed broccoli and a cucumber tomato salad. If it rains, then leftovers of Stuffed Bell Peppers.

I have a pack of lean ground chicken I have to use tonight. I am thinking maybe a chicken burger(no bun) with tzatiki sauce over it with a tomato salad and butternut squash "fries".

jenne...you are looking great! I remember your pic from last year and you can really see the weightloss in your face. Congrats!

I am taking the crack slaw plunge here! I will add a small portion of brown rice to my serving and adding some additional veggies to it also. Broccoli on the side.

It's 2:54 pm and I have NO CLUE what we're having. I was supposed to have thawed out some meat and started the crock pot this morning, but yesterday was crazy and I completely forgot about dinner tonight.

I'm headed to the store after work and will probably pick up the fixin's for big salads w/ some lean grilled protein on top. I'll just have to wait and see what looks good at the store.

Eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash and a red pepper chopped and baked in tomato sauce with some shredded mozzarella added before serving. Also spinach salad and ww rolls for Fergie.

Easy and boring but very yummy.

We missed our roasted chix by 5 min so we're having black beans with fresh salsa from the salad bar, cauliflower, radishes and jicama. DH bought a 69 cent ramen but I'll pass.

Next year we'll bring more food. We didn't realize how expensive it would be here.

I gave myself one table spoon of vegetable oil to make my whole dinner tonight. I'm trying to eat less fats.

So, I seasoned some tilapia with Old Bay and adobo seasoning (brushing it lightly with veggie oil), then baked it at 450 degrees for 25 minutes. Then, in the toaster oven, I roasted asparagus with some of the leftover oil, along with some shallot salt. I took what was left of my tablespoon (almost half!) and put it in a pain, where I sauteed about a cup of mushrooms.

I was shocked I could make one tablespoonful go so far! This will teach me to let the oil glug glug and think I was being healthy, haha.

Cyndi, I'm not trying to be your clone, but I was contemplating trying the Crackslaw on my family this evening, too!

Too funny!

Heidi - We love greens and baby bok choi cooked this way so I'm sure we will love it. I'm still debating tofu or veggie chicken strips. I'll figure that out tonight
