Dinner Monday, 2-8-2016 ~ Happy Chinese New Year!
 
Today is the first day of Chinese New Year. Who has Chinese food on their plates?

I'm hoping to get pineapple fried rice made for dinner tonight. Tried it for the first time last year and was surprised how very much I liked it! Even Himself thought it was yummy. Rather than send him out to pick some up from our favorite Thai place, five miles and at least five steep hills away (it's been snowing all day), I have everything I need to make it. Except if I don't cook the danged rice soon it won't be chilled enough for the fried rice. Better get hoppin'! :lol: ~ If all else fails, we have soup. Boy, do we have soup!

Love pineapple fried rice! :yum:

I'm thinking tuna casserole here.

I made a small pot of split pea soup this morning, I will have that with the last of my red pepper strips and dip.

I'm planning on fried chicken livers and yellow squash.

Got broccoli cheese soup going and will have sandwiches with it. Had dental work this afternoon and I'm still numb.

Snowing again tonight, so it's comfort food. Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and broc. Makes me feel like a kid again.

Spread out the rice on a cookie sheet and stick it in the freezer for a few minutes.

We're having "clean out fridge" night here. I'd like some salad though.

Pineapple fried rice sounds good.

No Chinese dinner here tonight, although that might have to be on the menu soon. :yum: Tonight's dinner is leftover grilled chicken from yesterday, a small potato salad I made this morning, and a loaded up green salad with lots of crunchy veggies.

I made a batch of minestrone soup. We had some ciabatta bread and butter with it.

Dang, I love fried chicken livers but it's too late to run out and get some.

Tonight it's clam chowder from a can, but good.

Cheers!
