Dinner, Thursday May 15

I'll get us started today so we can catch the early-birds

It is going to rain again today so I need some comfort food: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn, and maybe some biscuits.

For dessert I'm going to try another new cake mix cookie.

And what are all of you planning for tonight????

Geez Dave dinner already?!?! I can't decide on breakfast yet!!!
It will have to be very quick and easy. 8 yr old has his 1st baseball practice of the season at 5pm. I hate when they do that right at dinner time!!

Oatmeal with real maple syrup and brown sugar.... oh wait dinner..

I make a weekly meal list so I know at least the main dish if not the whole meal. It started doing this when I realized we were eating a lot of pre-packaged dinners or always running out to get take away and spending too much $$$. Things do change during the week and sometime I switch or have more leftovers than planned and McGyver something new out of them

I've gotten to where it is part of my Sunday morning ME time, since cooking is something I enjoy I have fun with making the list.

I need to start getting a meal list together. I never know what I am having.
That's all I have to say at this time, because I have no idea what I am having tonight.

planning on a pizza tonight, no knead dough/crust and fresh spinach, garlic and mozz cheese. might leave the carrots off....probably a bit of parmesan, olive oil and touch of salt.

but that is a long way off and the sun is out and it was not supposed to be, and I was going to clean the house, but i'm going outside

Wow, McGyver is sure becoming popular at DC!!

I try to make menu plans for the week, or even month, but things always get in the way of keeping it on track.

DH and I both have doctor's appointments this afternoon about an hour's drive away and we seem to have a sick puppy on our hands so the roast that wasn't done yesterday will be on hold again and I think we will end up picking up a rotisserie chicken with the fixings when we get back to town.

Well... what's for dinner..that's a good question.

I wonder if Paul will settle for a bowl of cereal?
