Dinner is a Big "?"

January 24th, 2014 at 11:08 am

We're not going out tonight, but I don't have anything planned for dinner either (I plan for 6 days a week and assume one night out). Ugh. I've eaten a super boring but inexpensive lunch (a pear, two fried eggs, chips and salsa leftover from F's lunch yesterday).

D will come home from work and assume I have dinner sorted out.

- something from next week's food list that we have in the house (but that is probably eggs and I just had eggs for lunch).
- polenta with red sauce and a side salad (we had salad last night; maybe peas?) or grilled cheese sandwiches
- stop by Sprouts and pick up a cooked chicken (the expensive option) and have it with something already in the house (peas?)
- goody plate made up of stuff left over in the fridge: toast, cheese, carrots (but since lunch was sort of unfulfilling, this might not be a good option; hmmm - do meals need to be fulfilling in addition to filling? probably yes)

I think it's the polenta. Inexpensive, warm, yummy.

Tomorrow - will take advantage of Sprouts' sales on gluten free items. Will increase the grocery bill in the short run, but save money in the long run.

    We are having tortellini soup for dinner, which is a favorite by all of us and there will be leftovers for a couple of us tomorrow. I don't always have a plan, but I do pretty good most of the time.

    I love polenta; puts me in mind of my childhood. We have side salad many nights in a row. Peas are tasty, too. Enjoy!
    Mmm, tortellini soup. We are having turkey loaf.

    Friday dinner here is most often 'buffet,' saucer sized plates of all the leftovers set out on the counter to help yourself. Last night as I did a quick check I realized the items were the ingredients for Pasta e Fagioli with a bit more navy beans [waiting in the freezer] and possibly my home made version of V8 if it lacked liquid when heated. I dumped all into a small crock pot, added some fresh spices and set low while I completed Friday's chores.

    Sometimes you live to eat and other times you just have to eat to live! Sound like tonight might be one of those nights Smile

    Yup - polenta it is! I love all of these ideas, though!
