Dinner Thread!

Dinner Thread!

I’m bored, so let’s have a food thread!

Dinner tonight ended up being a clean-out-the-freezer/fridge thing. Kidsmacks2 and I had fishstick sandwiches, KidSmacks3 had frozen fries and a can of chili. There was a bag of frozen broccoli and a box of grapes for healthy sides!

I have a bunch of veggies to use up and I’m low on ideas, so I’m going to ask y’all for your ideas :) I have: 5 banana...

Dinner Thread!!

I haven’t put one of these up in a while, and I’m sick, bored and don’t have the energy to cook, so tell me all about your dinners!

I’m the only one home, so my dinner was (can’t believe I’m admitting this...) Nacho Cheese Bugles dipped in sour cream. If I really feel adventurous later, I might throw a Lean Cuisine in the microwave. Something, something, vegetables...

Anyway, come in, sit...

We went and did it...

We went and did it...

Rented that house, I mean!

I feel better about it than I did before for several reasons, not all of which are me talking myself into liking it.

1) The owners decided that we CAN have our cat there. We can only have the one pet, and should something happen to her, we won’t be allowed another pet, but we can at least have our current furbaby with us.

2) They dropped the rent by $75. So it will be...

Wait til y’all hear this one...

So, we’re leaving Bestie’s house tonight, about 9 pm. We had intended to get going by 8 or so, but getting my herd out the door in anything resembling a timely fashion is... we’ll just say difficult. We absolutely had to leave, because I’m helping a friend out at Faire this weekend (free admission! And incense! Woo!) so I have to be there at 9 am, and I left...

Random question of the night

Random question of the night

Do you and your S/O hold hands a lot?

I mean, like, say you walk to the store. Are you holding hands or just walking next to each other?

I'm curious because I have 2 male partners and I hold hands almost always with one, and not very often with the other. It's not for any particular reason, just how we are with each other.

So... do you?

A long day

A long day

Some of you may remember the rootbeer float donuts I made for LittleSmacks #3 last year for his birthday. He requested them again for this year (he's 12!), but I was so not going to stay up all night making them this time! So, instead, I spent the entire morning between 7am and noon making 50-odd donuts, and then dropped them off at school for him.

Who wants Rootbeer Float donuts?!

Ok, guys,...

I made cheesy cornbread waffles with powdered goat’s milk and a bit of grated goat’s milk Munster cheese, and one of my many variations on chili. This one is a can of Hormel chili, a can of black beans, a can of corn, a can of diced tomatoes and green chilies, some chipotle salsa, and tomato, pepper, and onion sauce.

Pretty much out of fresh stuff for the next week, so it’s creativity...

Lunch thread! Or, I cook when I'm bored.

Lunch thread! Or, I cook when I'm bored.

I had a leftover pita bread and enough "stuff" to make pizza, and so, I did.

A tomato, garlic, pepperoni, and mushroom pizza with spicy sauce, to be exact.

Are you having anything for lunch? Tell us about it!

Is it a bad thing...

Is it a bad thing...

... when the chiropractor tells me my left hip and lower back is "all jacked up"? *le sigh* She told me to go home and ice everything, and come back on Friday. She also wants me to have a fascial massage to break up some of the scar tissue in my hip/back/upper thigh. I know how much that's going to hurt (and cost, since it's not covered by insurance), and I don' wanna. :(

I worked my tail off...

I’m down 2 kids for the evening... BabySmacks is staying at a friend’s across the field, and LittleSmacks3 went with a friend to the friend’s dad’s house... and so, since those are the 2 that are gluten and dairy free, I went a little nuts. (Don’t laugh too loud...)

I went to the store and I got a giant frozen Stouffer’s lasagna with meat sauce and a big box of frozen Texas garlic toast. OMG....

How was your day, dear?

How was your day, dear?

Did you hang out with friends or family? Did you have to work? Did you grill out? Have a party? Go to the beach? Huddle in the basement due to crappy weather? C’mon in, grab a drink, park your butt on the couch, and tell me all about it.

My day: Husband had to work, so that pretty well scrapped any family stuff. LittleSmacks2 is getting over a nasty cold and double ear infection so he chilled...

I was actually planning to cook tonight, but what with all the stuff going on yesterday and today, I decided I don’t really feel like it. So my dinner consisted of half a bag of Shrimp Snacks chips and some homemade dip (Fage 0%, mayo, dill relish, garlic salt). I may decide to cook later, once everyone’s home, but I’m not promising anything!

So, tell us all about your dinner!

Haven't done one in awhile... dinner/food thread!

Haven't done one in awhile... dinner/food thread!

Except I didn’t really have “dinner”, there was just a series of snacks (slice of bread, cup of boullion, half a caramel apple pecan strudel that was hiding in the freezer, 2 peanut butter balls) and now I’m super full. I’ve been on a roll this week, cooking-wise. It finally cooled down enough to actually cook in my appallingly hot and stuffy kitchen.

The last few days, we’ve had homemade...

We’re not doing anything exciting for dinner here tonight, just leftovers from the last few days. How about you?

Leftovers on tonights buffet include...

Brats, hotdogs, grilled pineapple rings, boiled shrimp, and corn on the cob from yesterday’s grill-out, chili, baked beans, plain pasta, and fruit salad from earlier in the week.

We did go to Chipotle for the first time ever for lunch today....

Another day, another hospital meal

Another day, another hospital meal

Yup, I’m still in the hospital. At least I’m getting real food again, not just clear liquids. I tell ya... white toast and a scrambled egg never seemed so interesting! Oh! And I’m sitting up! In a chair!

Dr came in this morning, said that the liver function test he ordered yesterday came back fine, and all the blood work came back fine. Pressed on my belly around the incisions and nearly...

What'cha working on, GT?

What'cha working on, GT?

My current project is a commission from a friend’s mom. She bought all the yarn and asked me to make her a bedspread sized afghan. 2 shades of purple, a deep blue, 2 varigated -same colours but one is jewel tones and one is pastels, and all of it to be outlined in black. I’m doing it as large granny squares in a patchwork style. It’s coming together very nicely.

I finished all but one of the...

LittleSmacks2 and I spent the day helping my mother pack (they’re moving. Again.) today, and so she treated us to Culver’s. Which was awesome, because I’m already sick of turkey this year! We each got a mushroom and swiss single burger with small fries and rootbeer. I don’t know about him, but mine was greasy and delicious. What did you have?

Dinner thread, anyone?

I have a cold (or, more accurately, I hab a code. Damn stuffy nose) and so I wanted all the garlic tonight. I finally got to go and do a big shopping trip this past weekend, so we have Real Meat (hot dogs are not Real Meat, imho, just an adequate substitute) for the first time in weeks.

I made a sirloin tip roast (4+ lbs at $2.99/lb! I felt like I was getting away with something!) with a chile...
