We don't cook Sat night - DD and myself ate whatever we could find at my mom's (salad, strawberries and a mango for me, and avocado, egg, potato croquet, and cashew cheese for DD). We were giving DH the afternoon off, so he scrounged around the house for some food that we made yesterday (we cook for Friday night dinner and Sat lunch/night all on Friday for religious reasons). Then after DD finally fell asleep we had late night pizza (for DH) and fries (for me) since it was already well after 10, and I had eaten at like 6:30 and was starving.
I've been trying out some new recipes lately. Last night we had "No potato, potato salad." Basically it had cauliflower in place of the potatoes, and then there were hard boiled eggs, celery, onion, pickles, mayo and mustard. We also had Tuna stuffed eggs with it. Tonight we are having stuffed green peppers in the slow cooker (they have beef, pork, cauliflower, carrots, onions, diced tomatoes, and garlic).
I am making up a random recipe tonight. I knew I wanted to do chicken and rice, but other than that.....I am just winging it.
I cooked up the chicken breast in greek dressing, and now the rice is cooking in chicken broth with fresh tomatoes, garlic, and some other herbs. Hopefully it will be decent.
I have to deal with my DS1 being UBER picky no matter what I make (he doesn't even like Kraft Dinner) so I just stopped trying to please him I know he will give me a big "UGH!" when he sees the rice tonight.
Facebook has been bombarded with people reposting awesome recipes.. I've been giving those a whirl.. Tonight was Cheddar Cheese Broccoli Chicken..
If someone wants the recipe, LMK.. I copy and save them into a Word file until I'm ready to try them.
Tonight was a weird food night. Tonight would have been the last night for the 'spaghetti that never ends' but since I spent all evening with indigestion yesterday DH agreed he'd finish the spaghetti. I'm trying to get my iron so I made a massive spinach salad with mushrooms, bacon and hard boiled egg on top along with my favorite spinach salad dressing (oil, red wine vinegar, ketchup, sugar, onion). It was SO good. Apparently you need vitamin C along with spinach for the iron to get properly absorbed so I had OJ with it too. DD had bacon, cheese and she ate some of my spinach too. LOL. She has never tried spinach but she liked it.
Oh man, I love that spinach salad. I hope it doesn't upset my tummy.
Tonight I did French Toast. DH isn't home at all on Monday's and he doesn't like french toast, waffles, or pancakes, so we usually have our "breakfast for supper" on Monday's.
I had mine smothered in syrup with some fresh strawberries
I also made homemade granola bars today for the first time. They were not too difficult and really yummy! I'd love to start making my own instead of buying them on a regular basis.
I WANT FRENCH TOOOOAAAASSST!!! I had some really tasty french toast with caramel and bananas on top from Denny's about a month ago and I have been craving it ever since.
