Default What's for dinner tonight?

I'm just curious. I always get great ideas from these threads.

Tonight at Chez Morgaine we're having Crockpot Pork Chops (1 can each cream of mushroom & cream of chicken [the healthier ones], a pkg of garlic herb Lipton Recipe Secrets & a few garlic cloves), elbow macaroni with some leftover alfredo sauce mixed in & either leftover roasted veggies (peppers, carrots, zucchini & potatoes) or applesauce. I think tomorrow is going to be either soup or spaghetti & meatballs. Or maybe Ultragotha Dinner which I have decided to nickname 'UGA' (no relation to the University of GA).

Cupcakes from yesterday's birthday celebration.

And probably either spaghetti or some stir-fry.

For lunch I had a croque madame and an apricot tart. I haven't started thinking about dinner yet.

I bought some steaks and brussel sprouts for dinner. But I wound up eating a caramel apple in the car on the way home.

I'm good, now.

I made chicken ala king for the first time. I had mentioned to DH that I was craving something with chicken and a creamy sauce. He suggested it but didn't sound too excited. Apparently his parents made it and it was bland. It became the thing they made when someone was sick. I must have found a better recipe because not only did he like it but Little Miss Picky did too.

I love these threads. So much fun to read!

Tonight was smoked sausage with potatoes and green beans cooked up with garlic and onion in a pot. Hubby cooked some cabbage and we had it on the side with Williamsburg buns, a yeast roll recipe made in the White House kitchens in James Monroe's time in office

It was very tasty and got compliments from my husband.

Mmm, my mom made something similar growing up, and I make it now too, but we do it in a skillet - sliced smoked sausage, red potatoes, and green beans. It's my go-to quick dinner as it only takes about 10 minutes.

Tonight we're trying a new recipe from HungryGirl, with fish, bok choy, and zucchini in a foil pack!

I also bought ingredients for Ultragotha Casserole later this week - if my corn tortillas are still good, I might try it as a layered casserole as suggested in the other thread!

I am preparing my famous ox tail soup, based on a Chinese recipe I learned in Hawaii.

Deconstructed chicken burrito: Spanish rice, diced white chicken, Mexican cheeses, lettuce, corn & black bean salsa, pico de gallo, sour cream, and baked tortilla strips in a bowl mixed together. I think a Modelo might be in order with some lime.

3 small gold potatoes, cut in pieces
2 handfuls of mini carrots, cut in pieces
1 can dark red kidney beans
1 small can corn (drained)
chili powder, cumin, dried red peppers and ginger, to taste.

This is more of a plea for help, but I didn't want to start my own "stupid cooking questions" thread.

I have onions, green onions and baby potatoes to use up with dinner tonight (and possibly some peppers or carrots). Usually I would steam the potatoes and toss them with a little bit of olive oil and the green onions, but I'd like to do something different. I was thinking it would be nice to slice the potatoes into small discs and cook them with the onions, but I'm stumped on how. Unfortunately, I'm not one of these people who just knows how to cook things - I need a recipe as a starting point, even if I modify it.

So, if you had the ingredients above and wanted to turn them into a throw-together side dish, what would you do? Protein tonight is a baked chicken breast in a marinade I've done before (soya sauce, olive oil, lemon, brown sugar and rosemary). Could I throw the potatoes and veggies around the breasts in a dish? Would they cook enough in 40 minutes (at 400) if they were thinly sliced? Would I have to add something to moisten them up? Would I have to sautee the onions first? Would the green onions cook too much if I added them?

Ugh. I feel like such a kitchen noob sometimes.
