Whats for dinner May 21, 2007?

Something simple for us tonight. Pork chops, and either rice or potatoes and one other veggie. Making a boston cream cake (box mix) for dessert.

Tonight we will have some beef stew meat mixed with 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom soup and an envelope of dry onion soup mix. (I also add in about 1/2 cup of water and 1 tsp. of Kitchen Bouquet). I stir this together and bake it in the oven, covered, for about 2 to 2 1/2 hrs at 350. Will also have mashed potatoes and some green beans.

I had two slices of anchovy pizza, a banana and a slice of peach pie for lunch, so I suppose supper will be mixed baby greens with Thousand Island Dressing, shredded longhorn cheese, and cheese and garlic croutons.

I made two homemade pizza's. Homemade dough and pizza sauce. One was shrimp alfredo and the other was just regular pizza sauce, cheese and salami. The only thing not homemade was the alfredo sauce. My dad came over for lunch and we had those pizza's.

For dinner: I think: rib eye steak, left over homemade mashed from last night and probably some green beans parboiled and than pan fried in some butter, S & lemon pepper season.

Although I realize ribeye doesn't need to be marinated, I thought I'd try this marinade my DH bought at BJ's. It's called Lawrys Marinade with garlic & cracked black pepper.

We were going to have meatloaf but since hubby's out of town tonight I decided to clean out the fridge some. I'm having Greek pasta (fresh tomatoes, shell pasta, feta, & mozerella cheese baked into a gooey heaven), TC's having leftover pork tenderloin, bbq mushrooms, & corn, & Savannah's having a salad.

My DH came home late and said he wasn't that hungry. He probably stopped for a burger "lol". I'm not extremely hungry due to picking and I'm tired due to not sleeping well at night. So I'm not cooking. I just ate a good amount of watermelon though and will probably pick a little. Actually I might make myself a chicken sandwich because I am a little hungry "lol". OK I am pregnant "lol".
I have chicken from the beer can chicken I made last night. Ok i"m off to go toast my bread and get that sandwich rolling.

Update: Yup made the sandwich. Nothing fancy. bread, lettuce, onion, mayo, little greek dressing, chicken and slice cheddar cheese. Also some salt and pepper kettle chips.

Heavens, kades. I'd hate to see when folks were hungry in your house. I was stuffed by the time I read the last of your post and I didn't even take a bite.

I was thinking the same thing, Katie! Kads, that sounds wonderful, as always!

We weren't hungry here, either, but that has a different result at my house than at dear kads--DH and I had cereal! Sofie's cutting her first eye tooth so she went soft and little of it--just a bit of spaghetti with spinach and sauce for her.

I know there was a lot of salad, but there were 7 of us. Four men, three women and then the little nippers as well all four of them picked through it as well..You should see what a prime rib looks like when they are all here

Thanks Pa, to be honest, I'd love a grilled cheese and tomatoe soup night!
