Dinner, Tuesday 12/14/10

In a movie last night the cast was eating in a diner. I immediately thought of Fried Potatoes. So I am making Fried Potatoes and Onions, Stewed Tomatoes. That is all I know so far. I am thinking a Pork Chop. Anyone have any suggestions?

going to make a pot of chili. And I have a few balls of frozen pizza dough that I may take out to thaw and make a pizza for my daughter who doesn't like chili. I'll use the other one to make a garlic loaf for the chili.....

I thawed a packet of shredded beef and juices. I'll have time to thaw some onion rice and along with a can of stewed tomatoes will make a Spanish rice.

YAY: This month's Commodities box included 4 cans of stewed tomatoes which is always on my grocery list.

I'm also making a pot of chicken stock, for warmth and scent.

My chicken stock has turned into a delicious broth. Guess I'll make chicken noodle soup.

I made the broth with about 2 qts. water with one package onion soup mix and added salt, 2 bay leaves, 2 whole stalks celery and one chicken thigh.

This is one place where I can use up some of the Ramen noodles where I've stolen the spice packet.

I'll make that tomorrow so I don't have noodles absorbing broth all night. Then after a big soup lunch, I can strain off the remaining broth and freeze.

Oh how I hate cooking separate meals for kids!! I do it, but I don't like it. What's even better is when I make them something separate then they don't eat that either. Sorry... mini-vent!!

I have also been know to repurpose the seasoning packets in ramen. Excellent addition to most soups!! Except it's so high in sodium and msg

Tonight, I'll be piecing dinner together, playing short order cook again... Me and my 5 year old will have leftover chicken noodle soup with buttered wheat rolls, dh is on his own although I offered to make him an omlette, he doesn't acknowledge soup as a meal, which is unfortunate for him because I have southwestern bean soup and pork & lentil soup in the queue for later this week lol. The 2 other little ones will probably have a little bit of everything.

I know the feeling. And I am doing it less as time goes by. Tonight I happen to have the majority of ingredients handy and some I need to use up. I can send some leftover pizza in her lunch tomorrow and my in-laws are coming tomorrow to do some xmas shopping, so they can have some chili for lunch because I will be at work. So, an hour in the kitchen should cover a few meals.

Dinner tonight will be a rotisserie chicken that I picked up from Costco, mashed potatoes, and steamed green beans with butter.
