Monday, Jan 21, dinner plans

Home now from work. Plenty in the freezer as always but sort of out of ideas. Please do your best to get me inspired.
What are you making or having for dinner tonight?

Wedding "cake" is finally out of the way and went well (got three more orders for cakes and one small reception!) so now I can cook up a storm for my guys!

Last night was ham with scalloped potatoes, corn, salad, biscuits and leftover cupcakes for dessert.

Tonight is traditionally homemade pizza night but instead I am thinking of grilled chicken breasts with linguine carbonara, salad, garlic buns and....more cupcakes!

Everyone's dinners sound so good tonight!

I'm making pasta carbonara tonight. In mine I use lima beans instead of peas, but that's the only variation from the traditional.

Still no idea but do know now it'll have to be something soft for me, hubby can chomp away on whatever it is I made. I'll try to do something crunchy for him but these d^#n crowns are really being a bother. I can not eat on the side they are on. I can only eat on the left side, which is the side with the temporary crown on it. I am going again, today, to the Endo guy to see if he can figure out what this pain is about. I think they drilled down way too much of the tooth after it had already been done by the privious office and that's the mistake. Supposedly, as per last weeks uneventful visit, they are aligned but that as per the dentist and that blue paper he put in my mouth, according to me, they are not lined up right or it's still too high which they say they can't take new crown off without cutting it off. I am sooooooooooooo frustrated, I could cry..............

anyway, soft food yet again

I have no idea yet. I usually just throw together what I have in my fridge. I'm thinking about baked chicken strips, frozen veggies, and brown rice. I know it sounds boring, but it's simple, fast, and healthy. I'm trying to loose weight from the holidays...haha!

Orange Roughy. Maybe blackened, maybe on the grill. I haven't gotten that far yet.
