Oatmeal tonight! I love it for dinner!

Not sure what's for dinner, maybe Chicken and Noodles or chicken soup. But, after reading some of these posts I have a hankering for cabbage rolls and Pierogi!
No, I haven't tried that. I may someday, but baking them was so quick and easy that I may just stick to that.

When I'm not really hungry, I try to take advantage of saving a few calories. If I really do get sort of hungry later, I'm not usually very hungry and have a couple of crackers instead of cooking and making a mess, plus eating too much.

Pour that over the beans, along with 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper, 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper, 1 cup chopped red onion, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, a touch of salt, and some chopped fresh parsley. Refrigerate several hours or, better, overnight. Pretty yummy.

My mother used to make bean salad, Katie, not with the peppers though.
I always figured it was a German thing, like German potato salad, only cold and with beans, lol.

Yep, going with the cereal. Grape nut flakes with a sliced banana. And I'll be thinking I'm starving about 9:00 tomorrow morning.

Oh, Three bean salad. I never cook the vinegar and sugar, just stir until dissolved. I also use red wine vinegar and add dill weed. Almost forgot, I double the marinating ingredients.

I really love reading what you all are making.. it always gives me inspiration for my weekly menus. :)

Tonight I made a pasta dish I came up with years ago.. It's nothing special.. braised italian sausages that are sliced after they are almost done then thrown back into the pan with some oil to brown up on all sides, sauteed sliced onions and chopped garlic, lots of lambrusco wine, a can or two of diced fire roasted tomatoes (drained) and lots of fresh basil.. I let that simmer while the spaghetti cooks and once it's almost done i throw the pasta into the sauce to let it finish cooking and then grate some parm on top. It's my favorite thing, and our bestfriends came over to enjoy it with us. :)

Dinner was roast beef with carrots, onions, celery, and potatoes cooked with the roast, mixed veggies (corn, carrots, peas, green beans), and salad. I use the drippings from the beef to make a pan sauce instead of a gravy.
