Good morning! Well, my night lastnight did NOT go as planned. My daughter wasn't hungry at lunch time so decided to come home from school & eat the rest of her lunch, therefore not wanting dinner. My youngest also came home "starving" & begged & begged for spaghettio's until I finally gave dinner necessary. My oldest son "forgot" to tell me the band was providing pizza lastnight after a school board appreciation dinner performance he played dinner needed. It ended up just being me & hubby so pork chops are tonight. The good news is that my seasonings are mixed up & the mashed potatoes are made :) Have a great day!!!

Well tonight is an easy dinner for you.

That was me on Saturday. I made a whole taco feast. The kids and hubby went to grandma's house, they ate a bunch of snacks there and weren't hungry. So, we had leftovers Sunday since only me and the 1 year old actually ate any dinner.

Yes, it's kinda of a nice way to be able to stretch the groceries but I had produce I was planning to use for dinner tonight that's not going to get used now...unless I get creative. It's a use it or lose it situation :) It's mot a lot, money wise, but I still hate to throw food away, ya know?

Been there done that. I hate to waste food as well. Hopefully you'll get some good out of the veggies tonight. Do a stir fry.

My only resolution this year was to reduce our food waste. So far it's not been too bad. Food costs are only going up and the pay checks are shrinking!
Jan. 15, 2013 7:52 am
This is exactly why I'm no longer planning and buying for a whole week. I've reduced it now to just a few days, because the produce doesn't last long enough if you have a night backfire on you...which around here always happens.

or you're just too lazy to cook, which around HERE always happens :)

In a soup mood again. Rainy and cold here today. I've got 3 large bone-in breasts, so I'll make my own broth versus the boullion cubes.

Yum! I could go for some of that right about now...I think Gabe passed his cold onto me. :(

Plain fare tonight. Grilled Polish sausage, sauerkraut and stewed tomatoes.
Jan. 15, 2013 4:50 am
I was craving polish sausage & kraut the other day so tried this recipe.. took care of the craving but made a ton(should've made 1/2 but my eyes were bigger than my stomach that day). It's very different, not bad just different, & I'm not sure leftovers will get eaten but they're going in the freezer today.

Two things. First; I didn't expect any response for this fare, Lisa. Second; I didn't know there was such a thing as a recipe for sausage and kraut! That, actually, looks pretty durn good. Thank you! ... What I do is, saute one medium onion cut in thick rings and long julienne of red bell pepper in two tbs of butter. When transluscent, add kraut and simmer uncovered until kraut begins to brown and remove from heat. Then, I grill the sausage on a stovetop grill or out door grill and lightly blacken. Then I cut into 1" chunks and add to kraut and reheat to serving temperature. Occasionally, I will add thousand island dressing to the kraut mixture.
