Wednesday, March 23 - What's on your menu?

Omigosh! It's 2 p.m. here and no one's posted yet. Must be so nice everyone is outside and has no thoughts of tonight's meal.

Ours is done. Made it ahead. Just have to warm it and serve it when we're hungry.

We're having chicken simmered in homemade marinara (canned from our garden last year) with minced onions, garlic and red wine, bow tie pasta, Italian green beans (also from the garden), mustard greens (picked from the garden this morning), iced tea, and fresh lemon cake.

Well.............everyone else? What say you?

Pepper steak over jasmine rice. Sadly, none of which came from a garden or are the results of our canning efforts.

I'm thinking creamed asparagus over biscuits and two or three pieces of rope sausage on the side. I might even cook a SSU egg or two for the top of the asparagus.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I just broke out the pressure cooker and cooked up some garbanzo beans for hummus.

I have everything chopped to make my Mediterranean pasta salad (sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, spinach, kalamata olives + feta) and the water is a'boiling for the orzo. I think that just calls out for chicken panini to go with it!

I took a small London Broil out of the freezer then later DS texted he wants to come for dinner. The roast is not big enough for 3 so will make meatloaf with the hamburger in fridge. Mashed taters and green beans maybe salads.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Leftovers! The bfd and I have gone low-carb and we are trying to keep it interesting (staying away from constantly eating grilled meat/salad combo). Tonight it's leftover cheesy southwestern pork chops and wings lol. The wings are usually so bad for you calorie-wise, but great on low carb...
I have posted a couple of recipes this week on my blog (on my profile) if anyone is interested- but I am also hoping someone might have some new low carb ideas they can pitch my way!!!

Chicken cacciatore and fried rice (cold, cooked, brown basmati fried up with sesame seeds). I'm still trying to decide on veg.

Just got back from the vet. Our dog ended up lame for some reason. My wife and daughter are gone to Kids Club, so it was just a ham, provalone, hot banana pepper sandwich, with a side of potato chips for me.
