What's For Dinner Tonight?
That is the question I hear every afternoon from the kids. Or, to be more accurate, they really want to know: "When is dinner?", or "How long 'til dinner?", or "Can we have pizza????"
Tonight I am making Thai steak on soba noodles with green salad. I'll hear complaints from my youngest for sure--I usually do. Looking back over the meals I've made for the last month, (I write them down in a calendar book), I see we've had quite a variety. Here is what I have made for dinner every night for the past month:
Slow cooked beef minestrone, spiced pound cake
Home made sloppy Joes, roasted baby carrots with orange-vanilla finishing butter
Herb marinated grilled pork chops, roasted yams
Carribbean chicken, green salad, orange wedges
Baked haddock, harvest veggies, coleslaw
Slow cooked beef minestrone (again)
Pan seared tilapia, roasted broccoli
Home made chili con carne with cheddar scallion bisquit topping
Whole wheat spaghetti with tomato basil sauce, green salad, garlic bread
Pan seared scallops with vegetables and quinoa
Pizza ("Finally!", the kids said.)
Corned beef and cabbage, baked fish, pasta and bread crumbs
Home made vegetable soup, lentil & brown rice salad
I'd better get started on tonight's dinner--just heard one of the kids ask: "What's for dinner and when are we eating?"
