It's hot & humid. I have 1.5 acres of grass to mow. Not cooking. Brought home pizza.

BF is away. I just made a mountain of pancakes. Didn't feel like grocery shopping, they sounded good. I don't have much pancake-making experience, but they're delicious. :lol:
Tonight was a chili night. We are in our rainy season, so while it´s still warm, it cools down more at night and when it rains. So, chili was quite appropriate.
Tonight was take out night for us! I just did not feel like doing dishes.
Rib eyes, baked beans, pasta salad, and lemonade pie.
Everyone deserted me, so I made a delicious stir-fry with leftover chicken and pork tenderloin, sweet onion, zucchini, snap peas, mushrooms, broccoli and peppers.
Pray tell! What is a lemonade pie????
We had chili, too!
A simple salad & some Moningstar Farms (meatless) links.
I met four friends at Olive Garden. I ate too much. Ugh.

Tonight we're having salad with grilled chicken, mango, and my homemade lime/cilantro/sesame dressing. I have half a watermelon in the fridge so that will be dessert. Tomorrow is Mediterranean night!
No one was home and you still cooked! You are a much better person than me - I would have run to the nearest Chipotle!
My husband has been hungry for meatloaf, so we had that along with corn on the cob from a farm market and fruit salad (strawberries, grapes, kiwi, and peaches).
It is made ith frozen lemonade, cool whip, and condensed milk...easy but bad for you...but so good!
Tonight is steak, baked potatoes, and Caesar Salad.
Tonight will be BLT's, baked beans, and fruit salad.
Tonight I am making spaghetti. Simple, easy, but always delish!
Gosh, I haven't a clue what to have for dinner tonight. Cereal sounds pretty good. :lol:
My dog would run away from home if I had cereal for dinner LOL He goes to lay under the dining room table as soon as I take a pan out of the kitchen cabinet.
I used to have a ridiculous 20 minute dialogue with my husband every night about what to have for dinner. Now we just make a list of things for the week and he has to choose one of those things or he's out of luck!
Salad, leftover grilled chicken, and a couscous-chickpea salad (also leftover).
Homemade basil almond pesto over linguine and shrimp, tomato salad, garlic bread, and freshly baked blueberry buckle.
My goodness, that sounds good! I would eat shrimp every night if I could.
I made spinach, red pepper, and black bean enchiladas.
Pork souvlaki, whole wheat pita, tzatziki, corn and pepper salad, grape tomatoes and sliced cucumber.
We decided on homemade spaghetti with non-homemade meatballs. I'm also going to make a monkey-bread style garlic bread and maybe green beans.
I made homemade basil fettuccini a few months ago. It took forever and made a mess in the kitchen. Do you have a pasta rolling machine? I think I need a new one since mine is old and hard to use.
Whole wheat linguini with a light lemon spinach Alfredo sauce..chicken sausages and garlic bread.
Honey lime shrimp, corn, and fettuccine
I spent all afternoon sealing off holes and cracks around my house before the big black racer in my yard decided to come inside and scare me to death.
No cooking for me!
Chicken cordon bleu

We had ham, mashed potatoes with gravy, and asparagus. We were out of ice cream, so I had to make a run to the grocery store.

Last night I made turkey burgers made with ground turkey, spinach and feta cheese. So good eaten with a little tzatziki sauce!
Not sure what's for dinner tonight. I got this new Low Carb magazine so I'm looking at all the recipes and they all sound so good it's hard to choose one.
Reservations at Hofbrauhaus tonight!
That was what I wanted to make tonight. Reservations. Hubby vetoed it :|

Too hot to cook...cool salads:
Macaroni salad with tuna and peas
Chicken pecan salad
Tossed baby greens with sliced tiny grape tomatoes from garden and crumbled feta.
We're making chickpea curry tonight. We ate way too much meat the past two weeks in Cuba, we need to get our veggies on.
We had Reubans. Or Rachels. Whatever you want to call it! It involved rye bread, pastrami, sauerkraut, 1000 Island dressing, and happy tummies.
Oh goodness gracious how I miss rye bread...!!! Can't find it anywhere in this country. The barbarians!!
A Reuben typically has corned beef, sauerkraut, dressing, rye.
A Rachel substitutes pastrami for the corned beef and cole slaw for the sauerkraut.
Maybe you had a Rachben...or a Reuchel!
It's pizza Monday at Harris Teeter so we got a large take and bake Greek pizza for $7! Yum!
