What is everyone cooking/having for dinner tonight? I need some ideas for my shopping list. Anyone else have that problem?

Baked pork chops and rice, peas



I lied! I was busy listening to the superintendent's press conference. I ordered yummy fried fast food instead!

I made an enormous beef lasagna the other day; it was sooooo good. I haven't had lasagna in ages. Lasagna freezes well too, so you don't have to eat it day after day (but we did because it was so good).

I went shopping today and was going to make chicken and broccoli but I'm really tired so I think I am just going to have a turkey and cheese sandwich.

I have been loving the flautas in my home chef box. Last night I made some with the frozen roasted corn from Trader Joe’s and some taco seasoned cooked ground beef I had in the freezer. I diced half a jalapeño and added a dab of cream cheese. Then I rolled the filling in a flour tortilla with a bit of pepper jack cheese. I put some oil in a hot pan and toasted them on all sides.

Served with guacamole and sour cream and sprinkled some dried jalapeños.

DH made a great salad with lots of veggies from the garden as a starter.

Google Home Chef flautas for other ideas.

A coworker of DH’s/friend sent over stuffed shells for dinner.

After picking up Mom and the death certificates today it was nice not to have to even think about dinner.

You all shared so many yummy ideas! Pasta and salad sound really good for tonight. I'm sure I have everything I'd need. I'll add some of the other ideas to my list.


Thank you all!!

we try to plan by the week--or at least a few days so we don't end up in the "what should we do?" cycle.

monday: Smorgasbord (salami, crackers, cheese, olives, veggies, ranch dip, hard boiled eggs--if the scoop bins at the store were open, i'd have also had nuts and dried fruit)

tuesday: chicken caesar salad with yummy bread from cheesecake factory (on clearance at grocery store)

wednesday: thai chicken lettuce wraps (scroll down board for recipe)

thursday: fend for yourself (DH was supposed to have a salad with shrimp when he gets home, but i see he didn't thaw shrimp); i will have the last slice of quiche i made last week

friday: soft tacos

saturday: Blaze pizza!

sunday: probably burgers

meatoaf muffins, beans in the pressure cooker, and for the husband I added fried okra (first time I made it in over 25 years of marriage). I don't eat it but he said it was good.

Breakfast for dinner is such a treat. Sounds like you had a tasty scramble.

I guess it's too late now, but I made rosemary pork medallions. They're so good! I've made them several times. Here's the recipe, if you need something for another time.
