A couple of Filet Mignon that will be browned in pan, some sauteed brussel sprouts and some wild rice.

Nothing fancy. But the steaks turn out great like that.

I made some great soup this morning and will have a salad with it. Fruit for dessert.

Whoo! Good thing I checked in here, I'd forgotten to take the burger out of the freezer. I'm working tonight so don't know what I will eat there, but I'm leaving little meatballs in tomato sauce and rice for the family here. They will also have a lovely salad.

Ugh. I'm feeling very unmotivated to cook tonight, in part because Sofie's been up since 4 AM (chipper, just awake! ) and I have a ham steak in the fridge that I need to use up and that just doesn't sound good to me today. Most likely I'll grill the ham steak with a vanilla balsamic glaze and serve it with sweet potatoes and salad.

Ooooh, Alix, that sounds good! I don't have a lot of the ingredients so I can't do it tonight but it's going on my list to make very soon. Thanks!

I have a pork shoulder lurking in a 250*F oven since this morning, added some white potatoes about noon, and will try to roast some frozen broccoli, and the DH wants pancakes. Will have all 4 items

K, Mines sorted now, I`m having Fries and the wife`s having a Salad, the Lab is void of clients and all business has ceased for the day WOOHOO! :)))

she`s done ever so well at the gym and lost 15 pounds in just over 2 weeks, I didn`t want to inflict Fries on here as tomorrow is Weighing day...
I for one am Really Proud of her!

once we get rid of the back-log of "bad" foods from the house, things will be a little easier for her too.

I think I'm having soup. It has shredded carrots, rutabega, leeks, red lentils and yellow split peas in it. Cheap and filling.

I want macaroni and cheese but we have no cheese. :(

I've got my brisket (recipe located in the smokin' meats category) going in the smoker right now. I'll probably make some german potato salad to side it with.

I was in a meeting from 8:30 - 4pm and my brain is totally fried. Does a bottle of wine count as dinner?

Seriously, I will probably make a casserole with penne, mushrooms, garlic and a cheesy cream sauce, its easy and comforting (and it goes well with wine).

I have handbell rehearsal tonight and I'll be leaving before hubby gets home so we'll throw together spaghetti and salad when I get home from church.

We are ordering out tonight. Maybe chinese or indian. One of the things I love about New York is all the different kinds of food you can get delivered to your door.
