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 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 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 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.

I just had our version of ULTRAGOTHA casserole: Quinoa rather than rice, and with avocado and lime juice on top after cooking.

Mind you, I have a dark chocolate TimTam every night.

Icon23 Potato Kielbasa Skillet

We didn't have anything special tonight but a few days ago I made this for the second time and we love it. I reduced the thyme by half because I don't tolerate some herbs well and I increased the sauce ingredients by 1/2 because the first time we thought we wanted more sauce. We were right. I used kielbasa from Dearborn Sausage, which is a pretty good one.

I've decided next time to leave out the bacon (I know, so sad) because it doesn't really add much to the dish and the other pieces are bigger so it's just left on the plate to be eaten at the end. Try it; I think you'll like it. Change it up. Make it your own.

Next time I find kielbasa cheap I'm making that dinner!

I got some cheap sliced pepperoni, so that'll be added to onion and peppers and put in with a jar of spicy tomato sauce and pasta (and probably some peas) for tonight's dinner.

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!
