Monday, Monday (Jan 30th), What's cookin'?

Ugh, I'm still trying to wake up but I DO have a plan for dinner. It may change, but at the moment I'm thinking homemade pizza. I have time today to make the dough and I have all the fixings so that likely what will be on our table. Since I have the time I may use Frank's recipe and actually freeze some dough so I can make things faster the next time.

This eating out of the freezer is harder than I thought.
I now realize that some of my dinners, maybe most of them, were based on what I felt like cooking that day. Even though a lot of my dinners started out in a frozen state, for some reason it seems harder to find something to eat in the freezer now than it used to. I am needing my grocery store impulse buying dinners back!

Lunch will be leftover scampi. Dinner... ???

I grilled some chicken and peppers and onions. This will go on grinder rolls with sliced cheddar and in the oven for chicken style cheesesteaks.

I am finally feeling better and able to both cook and eat!
For lunch I made Italian Sausage Soup. It was really awesome and easy. I didn't go by their simmer times because I like my veggies tender crisp so just went by that. DH agreed so this will become part of our menu plan!

For dinner I am doing shrimp and mushroom egg fu yong and honey garlic riblets. I will probably do some steamed rice with it as well.

Maybe devote a couple of days a week for freezer foraging and others for spontaneous shopping! Maybe even an every other day thing!
