Alright you all, what have you been eating for dinner?

Its hot here, so I've been trying to eat not so heavy meals. Chicken tenders, homemade mac n cheese, and garden fresh salad was what we had Saturday Night. Last night I made a beef stirfry. I find that stirfry is a good Summer meal, as it's not very heavy. And it usually has lots of veggies in it, which is good as the garden is producing 

I think this morning I will put a pork tenderloin in the CP and then shred it and make taco's tonight.

hey dorian, a couple of weeks ago i put a lean (most likely eye of round) roast in the crockpot with a large quartered vidalia onion and a couple of packets of low-sodium beef boullion that i found at krogers dissolved in the appropriate amount of water - oh it was SOOOOOOO YUMMO!!!  yes rachael ray would approve!  since gravy is a no-no for me now, i had to find an alternative, and this will do.  the next day, billy & i had the leftovers on buns - mine whole wheat of course.  billy said "make that again and double the onion!!"  he did not miss the gravy!!

Well Dorian the weather here has been terrible, it is more stew and dumplings weather than anything else lol. Yesterday we had roastlamb which I covered in cranberry and roasemary and garlic, with mashed potatoes and steamed carrots and cabbage . sorry Cindy, but we had gravy too

Tonight I am just going to make a spicy chicken dish with a sweet and sour sauce and rice. I have taken stewing steak from the freezer for tomorrow. I shall put it in the slow cooker with lots of onions, muchrooms and veggies. Once that is done I shall portion it up and make pie with one portion and freeze to serve another day with Yorkshire puddings. Two meals in one :)No cooking one day when I don't feel up to it :)

Jacqui

We had jambalya with rice. I have a huge pot of beef stew on for tomorrow since the weather seems to be turning cold again. I will make some type of bread to go with it, probably corn bread.

Yah Cindy!!! I'm so glad you found a good alternative for gravy. Woohoo!

Jacqui, could you please post your spicy chicken recipe? I know two 'boys' who would love it.

MMM...I am getting hungry reading this thread...lol

I didn't do the pork tacos yesterday, so will do them tonight. We had nachos instead.

I had just mac and cheese last night. Zach got called out to the base to take care of an issue and I didn't know when he would be back so he grabbed something on the way and I had enough leftovers to feed Jonathan so i didn't feel like cooking for just me.

I'll make something with chicken tonight but not sure what. I don't want to be stuck in the kitchen when American Idol starts so it has to be quick!!!

This is a bit late, Jenn but next time . . .

Lemon Pepper Chicken (man this is good!)  .. The amounts of ingredients are for 2 breasts.

A tablespoon or so (I like a little more cuz I'm a glutton) of butter/margarine per chicken breast in a skillet (we cook 2, so use 2 generous slices of butter).  Put the burner on about halfway between med and med hgh.  Let the butter start to melt, shake a bunch of pepper all over the skillet (you know us Texans ... can't have too much pepper LOL).  Put the chicken in slide it around a little then turn it over (basically you've just coated the top side).  Squeeze 1 small lemon or 1/2 of a great big lemon all over that chicken.  Cover, let it cook for about 5 min or so, just enough to get done-ish on the bottom.  Flip it over, squeeze the rest of the big lemon or another small lemon on it, cover and let it cook till done ... about another 7-8 min, depending on the heat/chicken size, etc.  I can even cook this in my stainless steel skillets and the chicken doesn't stick to it! When done, put it on a bed of rice, serve with garlic toast :)  We eat small so that is usually all we eat with it.  When we're really hungry, we might add a pea salad.

haha Cindy, you know me too well!

Well, I didn't realize that my dear husband had used one of the last chicken breast pieces for his lunch so I made his favorite meal instead. I use hamburger meat with taco seasoning, lay out crescent rolls and stuff them with the browned hamburger meat, bake as normal for the crescent rolls, top with shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce and sour cream and you have little taco "pockets".

I'll do chicken tonight I guess :) I have to go to the store to get more!

Sara we love lemon pepper chicken but I've never made it that way so maybe I'll try that tonight. I usually bake my chicken breasts on my stoneware, as I don't have to thaw them before I put them in the oven that way, they take about an hour on 350 (give or take) and I just season them partway through. If they're already thawed I'll marinade them for about an hour in one of my food saver containers (after you vacuum them closed it takes about 30 minutes to get them fully saturated. It's awesome) then grill or bake them.

I always get boneless/skinless breasts so it's easy to deal with.

That sounds good Sara, thanks! I have finally found the KEY to using my cast iron skillets. If you get the skillet hot FIRST, then add your oil/butter, then food, your food will not stick! Now, I have known this for a long time but things still stuck some. But one day, not long ago, I turned the burner on and put on the skillet then got busy doing something else. Well, that skillet got HOT and nothing stuck to it!!! LOL So now I make sure its good and hot before I use it.

Jenn, I'll be doing chicken breasts tonight too. I'm craving tomato sauce, so will make chicken parmesian.

I came home from work last night hungry for chicken pot pie. I was exhausted but quickly made a pie crust while the chicken breasts were thawing in the oven. Didn't take lond at all, need to make it more often. It was really good! And filling with leftovers for my lunch. After dinner I went to bed and slept very well.

OOH Do you have a good recipe for chicken pot pie? I LOVE CPP, but I've never made it, just bought it frozen or from Boston Market.
