what's cooking?

What's cooking this week? It's such an odd week because I want to plan comfort foods but it's going to be sixty-freaking-two on Wednesday!

Sunday: bacon cheeseburger meatloaf (link) with mashed root veggies (potatoes, turnips and rutabaga) and peas

Monday: leftovers

Tuesday - Friday: unsure.  We picked up some ribs and NY strip on sale this week and we still have sweet potatoes and mushrooms from last week's CSA share so who knows yet?

Tonight I am making a batch of the Lighter Tastes Like Lasagna soup (link) for lunches for the rest of the week

Re: what's cooking?

  • Tonight is either Hamburger Helper (I know, I know...but I have 1 lb. ground beef I dug out of the back of the freezer that need to be used and a box of HH) or grilled chicken and some sort of veggie (again- found chicken breasts frozen in back of freezer and need to use them)

    Tomorrow will be whichever of the above we don't have tonight.

    Wednesday I'm thinking breakfast for dinner.

    Thursday/Friday will be some sort of leftovers or real basic stuff like mac & cheese or grilled cheese...

    I'm hoping to get to the store Friday night to do our super duper food shopping order.  Obviously, we're scraping the bottom of the barrel over here.

  • I feel like Mom since my sister is living with me, so I'm going to try to make some meals this week since I'm finally getting some energy back.  Yay for 2nd tri!

    Tonight - baked ziti with meat sauce - I make it like lasagna and layer it.

    Tomorrow - leftovers

    Wednesday - I'm out, but I might throw together some Indian chicken with rice for my hubby.  

    Thursday - Steaks (recipe from The Chew) with roasted fingerling potatoes & turnips (0602, you should look at it since you have mushrooms to cook - I know you don't like onions, but you like beer ;-P)

    Friday - Chicken fajitas
