I thought about Tortellini with Spinach-Ricotta-Sauce..

But DH didn't look too enthusiastic about that, so I gave him the choice to bring something from the supermarket... he wants a veggie-wok...

Either ravioli with shrimp and chicken in cream sauce, or tacos. We'll see how energetic I am when I get home today.

I have some leftover meatpies from yesterday... some leftover ground lamb... think I'll make some sauce for the lamb and do a pasta dish of some sort and serve with the pies. Carb overload, happy tummy!

I am trying to get my freezer cleaned out, found a couple packages of corned beef so they are simmering and then will be put in the oven to finish. Guess the sides will be cabbage, boiled taters and carrots. I can't wait!

I'm thinking about trying spaghetti sauce in the pressure cooker again. It came out pretty good last time, but I want to add onions, peppers and mushrooms to it. I need to look around for how to add other items and whether or not they should be sauted first.
And hey! This could qualify for a meatless meal! Good thing I had one of those BK mushroom, swiss steakhouse things for lunch (lol).

I'm thinking something quick and easy. I have been having sinus problems and feel worn down. I don't even feel like staying up for Monday Night Football.

Dunno...

DH wants breakfast for dinner, but that's not tripping my trigger.

On the other hand, I can practice buttermilk biscuits again - see if I can't get them a little more fluffy...

I was out fixing (trying to) a friends computer - so very quick meal for the boys - Cumberland sausage rings, noodles with pesto & baked beans.

I'm torn....
I was thinking hamburger stroganoff over rice... but the middle one that wont eat dinner requested scrambled eggs... we had that last night.
Do I give in for the sake of getting food in this child, or start browning hamburger....
or both....

I don't know if that was a rhetorical question or you want input.....
Start browning the hamburger.

I just ate a bowl of Navy Bean Soup I pulled out of the freezer.
