Dinner ideas for tonight, Jan 10th, Wednesday

Anyone know what dinner will be yet?
I was up early with my doll (DH) and got him off to work.
Got out the crocker, put in it 2 large 29oz cans of pureed tomatoes, a can of tomato soup, a can of cream of mushroom soup, all kinds of garlic and onion and typical Italian spices, a dab of balsamic vinegar and a portherhouse leftover steak from the freezer. It'll cook all day and tonight, it'll go on spaghetti noodles with salad and garlic bread.

What are you havin?

Yup, 1 kilo of diced chicken breast cooked in a Thai Green curry paste and coconut milk (this paste isn`t at all bad for off-the-shelf stuff either! get`s the YT seal of approval).

We're going out tonight with my parents. I think the kids said they wanted to go to Joe's (their favorite greasy spoon) so I'll have 2 hot dogs, a small order of chili cheese fries, & a hot fudge cake for dessert.

i think dw is making shake-n-bake pork chops tonight. i'm not sure tho. i may try to talk her into letting me make them pizzaola.

either way, i'm making a pot roast, with onions, carrots, garlic, and celery in the crock pot. i made a dry rub and coated the meat last night, wrapped tightly in plastic in the fridge. it'll be seared in butter and evoo, then into the crock pot with the veggies.
it'll be lunch or dinner tomorrow.

Just made some chicken stew, its in the crockpot staying warm. So my family can have that or some perohe if they don't want that (and I can guarantee the kids will say ICK). I'm going to have whatever they are serving at work.

I was going to roast a chicken, but mom called and said she had some ham, cabbage and taters leftover. So I'm swinging by there on my way home

Ended up making chicken florentine. I didnt buy the bagged fresh spinach, and my store didnt have frozen chopped spinach which is what I normally use in place of the bagged version, so I bought frozen leaf spinach and it's horrible! On the side is stuffed potatoes.
