..and a few days later.....
Thursday night was a great hodgepodge dinner... A little of this.. a little of that... leftover night before basketball practice.. and I mean hodgepodge..
Leftover bean soup, leftover Spaghetti Ohs from packing a lunch, some trail bologna, cheese and crackers, carrots/celery/cukes and hummus, sliced apples, some spaghetti and a veggie chikin patty....What was not eaten was tossed b/c there was not much left to worry about. I love the sight of a cleaned out fridge.. It is like a fresh start!
I had pulled out a package of Chicken Breasts for dinner on Friday but the hubby saw a 50% off coupon code for Papa Johns.. and the way I see it.. if he mentions something like that.. he is interested in that.. So I ordered in 1 large pizza and 1 order of bread sticks . with delivery and the generous tip I added it was $15.50. Easy night for me!
For Tonight's( Saturday) dinner I went back to that chicken and used the last of the bag of Potatoes I bought last weekend. I made Loaded Baked Potato and Buffalo Chicken casserole http://cooklisacook.blogspot.com/2012/03/slimmed-down-loaded-potato-buffalo.html
I made a partial pan and it was SO good! Kids had Italian dressing marinated chicken and some potatoes, corn and mac and cheese as they don't like spicy... yet!
Since the oven was already going and the house can always use more heat I whipped up a recipe of Pumpkin bread and made 12 large muffins, 24 mini muffins and a loaf of bread. These make good lunch fillers, snacks and breakfasts... http://allrecipes.com/recipe/downeast-maine-pumpkin-bread/detail.aspx
I am thinking Tomorrow's breakfast will be buttermilk pancakes to finish the buttermilk... We are meeting inlaws for dinner.. they *need* Cracker Barrel so no meal planning for me.. until next week!
