Lefty - you don't mention if you have rice but you mentioned stir-fry.

I like to make a rice pilaf with some of those veggies chopped fine in it, and you could grill the chix breasts. In fact I've been craving that!

I got up at 6:30 this am to prepare a crock-pot roast beef. I put in 3 big potatoes, cut in large chunks, a huge onion cut in large chunks, the roast, and covered in dry onion soup mix and a can of cream of mushroom soup concentrate, and s&p. Its been cooking for about 7 hrs on low and smells divine. I just added a couple handfuls of baby carrot chunks to the bottom of the crock and am turning it up to high for 2 hours then back down to low to finish out.

We have our first snow of the season and I'm freezing! This roast will definitely hit the spot. I might make some bread in awhile or maybe get hubby to go to the store for some salad fixings but it isn't necessary - the roast & veggies will be delish.

Yes, I have rice. I just didn't think of mentioning it becasue it is such a basic staple in our home.

or ?

Chicken fajitas and yellow rice. Additions of sauted green peppers and onions, sour cream, tomatoes, shredded lettuce and cheese, lots and lots of cheese.

Lefty, you have the makings for a nice pot pie.

We had Parmesan/sage pork chops last night.


I will be finishing up the meatballs from Sunday night. Not sure if I will serve them with mashed potatoes again or with rice and lots of vegetables. I just baked a pan of brownies and iced them with chocolate/peanut butter frosting.

Thanks marigene, I will remember that for the next week's menu. I found some black bean sauce in my cabinet so I did go with a stir fry. The house smells so good right now. Those chops look good enough to eat my screen. Yummy!!!

We're decorating the inside of the house tonight,
So I think we'll get some chinese takeout. I'm thinking hot and spicy beef, maybe pork fried rice, wonton soup and a egg roll.

I need to make the stuffed peppers I've been procrastinating about since Sunday.

But it's cold and wintry here, and Green Eggs with Ham [scrambled, with basil and/or oregano] and garlic toast sounds so much yummier.
