Default What's For Dinner? Fall 2010

I'm looking for more ideas as I plan out the menus for the next few weeks, and I bet some of you are, too! So, what's for dinner tonight? Maybe we can help each other stay on plan with healthy dinner options!

Tonight we're having beef and lentil stew that's cooking up in the slow cooker. Yum! I'll round it out with salad and DH will add some toasted rye bread to his meal.

I am making a lot of soups. Some of which I have found here. Soup is great in the Fall, warm fast and easy!

In the crock pot currently is split pea. I will probably make some Parmesan crisps to go with it to take the place of crackers.

Tonight I am taking it easy and making turkey meatballs (from Trader Joe's, so "making" them means just putting them in the oven), salad and some rice for my husband. Tomorrow night I am making salmon patties (also from TJ's, so making them means frying them up on the stove) and probably some roasted cauliflower with pesto sauce. Friday night I'm going to make the spagetti squash casserole with mushrooms and turkey pepperoni and fresh tomatoes.

lazylioness, making parmesan crisps is a great idea. i'll use that one soon.

tonight we're having a baked ziti, but I'm replacing the ziti with spaghetti squash...so it's just kind of like beef, marinara, ricotta and spaghetti squash. we'll see. Rounding it out with a salad and I got a whole wheat french demi-loaf for the kids and DH.

I was going to make turkey meatloaf (from the book) but I found that I don't have half of the ingredients, so I am sauteeing up some veggies (just ones I had in the crisper) , adding pesto (yum ) and then I am going to make a breakfast casserole (2 meals in one) I make up the recipes myself.

I need a good turkey meatball recipe. Without breadcrumbs (or perhaps I can make Ezekiel bread crumbs)

Parmesan crisps are about 2teaspoons of Parmesan cheese on a hot griddle and melted. Or you can bake them. They get all crispy and good. Hubs to be makes "cheez-its" with cheddar that way. Taste like crackers, not great fat wise, but awesome when you are craving a certain square salty cheesy cracker.

It's yummy!

You can make it without any meat for a side dish. I can eat half the recipe sometimes.

Mmmmmm....crack slaw! Must put that on the menu after Thanksgiving. It's just so darn versatile!!

Tonight we're having roasted chicken with rosemary. Can you believe I found FRESH rosemary in our grocery store?!?! I couldn't. I've got to run back to the store later today, so I'll pick up some veggies to have then.

Okay I give in, we are having crack slaw tonight. I don't make it in the summer because I refuse to use non-local veggies when there is so much available at the farm stand. Now that it's officially cold though cabbage and carrots are about all I can get. Should be ready in about 5 minutes and it smells great

Last night was a veggie sauce. I use the same recipe I've always used for sauce and load it with veggies, veggie crumbles and beans. I eat it like stew, no pasta. In the old days I ate it over half a lb of pasta

I got home early enough to make butternut squash fries from a squash right out of my own garden. I had a bunless veggie burger with it.

I think crack slaw will be on the dinner menu very soon. You all made me hungry for it again.
