Default What's Cooking? week of 1/5

Okay, I couldn't remember the exact title of the old thread so hope this will do

With all the new chicks around and those of us re-committing it seems like a good time to share meal ideas. So what are you having for dinner tonight?

We are having the crockpot chili lentil PB stew. I made it yesterday but we got back so late we couldn't wait for the PB part and ate something else We've been really enjoying salads lately so will probably have a side salad. My current favorite "dressing" is 1 T of homemade eggplant hummus mixed with 1T fat free yogurt. Yum

Tonight I'll make a stir-fry with pork and lots of veggies. I may have it with brown and wild rice or ww pasta.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

I made the Deep-dish Spagetti Squash Italian Pie yesterday, so that's what I'm having for my supper. I made a yummy filling for it with red and green peppers, mushrooms, onions and spinach, so it's super-full of veggies. YUM,YUM!!!

I'm going to makes some kind of lasagna layer casserole (with WW pasta, obviously), I'm going to make it up as I go.

I found a recipe, Savory lentil Casserole, that I'm going to make for my lunches this week!

Last night was Baked Pesto Chicken from the Quick & Easy cookbook with whole wheat bowtie pasta and lots of broccoli.

Tonight we are having leftover Hearty Bean and Pasta soup with extra tomato juice and chicken broth added to it.

Tonight we're having grilled Chicken, mushroom kabobs, & a green salad. I'll probably have a peanut butter cup (from the recipe thread) for dessert.

Twynn - I'm curious about the lentil casserole. Let us know if it turns out yummy!!!

Last night i had a big BIG taco salad - homemade refried beans, seasoned boca meat, lettuce, tomato, salsa for dressing, and a scoop of plain nonfat yogurt on top (no sour cream ) tonight? I have no idea. maybe I'll do another big BIG salad with pan-fried tofu for protein. I have lots of salad stuff I need to use...

Haven't scrolled through all of the posts yet but could you share the recipe. I make Spag Squash with Turkey Sausage filling a lot but have never made a "pie" version before. Please share... TYIA!

As for my meals this week ~ SBD'd Carrabba's Sausage & Lentil soup, Taco Bake, and Turkey Chili are either on the list or already in my fridge. It is FREEZING up here so everything is comfort foods in my house this week.
