Monday, February 5th, dinner plans?

I know, Super Bowl Sunday isn't even done yet. But I couldn't sleep last night and am finding the same tonight. So I thought I'd start the thread, waaay early.

Last nights' dinner was wonderful. {oh oops, I mean tonights dinner, it's still Sunday here 10:56 to be exact]. DH couldn't even finish it. And I even managed the spaetzle which was wonderful.

Tonight, this house has reruns yawning in the frig to come out, get eaten, and be gone. Those are the plans for around here.

How bout you? What are you making for dinner?

Well, LEFSEloverm I guess you're like me-it's one am in the morning and I'm wide awake and even our new wild, rambunctious kitten from Hades is sleeping (her name is Zoe and we love her to death)--we have seafood gumbo waiting for us tomorrow to get rid of. Yum!

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

LOL, nice for we europeans not to be thinking about supper first, lol. I have a chili on the stove. Having made chili with real chunks of beef rather than ground for the first time last week I think, it was a hit. Today I am doing the same with beef, but have reintroduce beans for bulk :)

Right now, it's a quarter after 6 in the morning. I just ran out to start the car because it's 9 degrees with the windchill. Funny, it actually felt like 50 below, but who am I to judge.

I've got 14 pounds of left over lasagna in the fridge. If I eat an appropriate size portion every night, I could be done with it in two weeks. I'd better get started.

Seriously, I'll probably end up with a can of soup and salad in a wrap.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Dinner will be stuffed cannelloni with broccoli and cheese topped with tomato sauce plus boiled wild winter greens.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Since my menu is largely dictated by the weather (it's cold, did you hear?) I'm thinking about making a spicy batch of red beans and rice. Sounds like a belly-warmer to me!

Just took out some ground turkey to defrost. I'll make spaghetti and turkey meatballs for dinner with garlic toast. Thank goodness I have all the ingredients I need, just don't feel like bundling up the little ones to go out in this cold weather today. We'll stay in all day, watch a movie and have soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.
Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!
