Default What's for dinner?

This thread doesn't seem to be current, so I thought I'd start a late June/early Summer edition. I have found it very helpful in the past.

I'm really going to work on the vegetables this time, so tonight's dinner was 2 small summer squash and lots of mushrooms sauteed with onions (everything sliced) and spinach, accompanied by a small ground sirloin patty.

Hi Xan

Chili - ground beef, onion, green peppers, red kidney beans, pink kidney beans, all kinds of tomato products. Maybe a hot dog thrown in there if I think I'm deserving

Leftover beef tenderloin with steamed broccoli and maybe some salad if I have any lettuce left in the fridge. Dessert will be raspberries with a few walnuts. Today is my first day of phase 2 - I've been looking forward to those raspberries all day!

Chicken and spaghetti squash scampi. I was out of shrimp so chicken had to suffice. Dessert tonight will be LF ricotta with strawberries and a little cocoa powder. The strawberry juices give it a nice flavor. Jen enjoy your raspberries!!

I made sloppy joes tonight but had to make my own seasoning mix. Did you know the first ingredient in sloppy joe seasoning is sugar?? WTH!! So in the grocery store I wrote down all the ingredients (sugar, garlic, onion, wheat flour, vinegar, chili powder, paprika, and salt) I didn't have paprika so just omitted that. I used splenda for the sugar (2tsp) and added cinnamon (1/2tsp) since I used to put brown sugar in mine too then 1/2 tsp salt a 1 tsp of the other ingredients. Then I added a can of diced tomatoes (pureed so my picky hubby wouldn't know he was eating veggies) and tomato paste with some water. It was yummy!

Anyway, also had a nice garden salad with caesar dressing.

Can I just tell you, those were the absolute most delicious raspberries in the history of fruit! I'm smitten

Any tilapia recipes to share? I just bought a lb for dinner and would love some new ideas. I'm making that with roasted asparagus and a salad of fresh greens

Cyndi - I said something on facebook the other day re: tilapia, and they posted a whole bunch of recipes! Look on my wall, if you'd like. I think to look under the tilapia section of allrecipes.com would be useful too. (I'm trying to eat more fish, but don't know much about it...)

I'm planning to do a pan-grilled sirloin steak and salad.

Tonight, DW is going to a sleep study and has to eat "light" - I am thinking shrimp cocktail and a salad.

That does sound heavenly! Today I had my raspberries just after lunch because I felt a little more snacky last night than I did in P1. I felt fine today so I think maybe my fruits need to be a daytime thing & I'll stick with a veggie-heavy dinner/evening snacks.

Dinner tonight was a piece of lime chili tilapia from Highliner with a can of green beans. LOL, not exactly the veggie heavy meal I mentioned up there ^^ but I really wasn't feeling all that hungry tonight! The fish was quite tasty though and had a nice spicy kick to it!
