    These sound great! We got a rotisserie chicken last night, so we're making curry chicken with the leftover. We'll put it over rice with carrots and onions.

    But I'm really in the mood for pizza.

    We had Sonic. I had a grilled chicken salad. We haven't eaten out in quite awhile so it was nice to not have to cook....and I was H-U-N-G-R-Y!!

    I always want Chinese for dinner. But, I had leftover chicken cutlets, green beans, and Pasta Roni (bow ties with cheese). It was better the second night than the first.

    Leftover Seafood alfredo in the crock pot from the crockpot lady. IT was good but I am starting to get tired of it...

    I had the most delicious chicken lo mein for lunch... I dont know what they did to make it taste so good, it wasn't from anywhere special.

    Perogi - not the normal kind though - rice, peas, carrots, ground turkey - some with pepper jack some without - both were very tasty

    That used to be the case for me, too, but now they are popping up everywhere. They are ok - I like their ice cream and drinks more than the food.

    i browned turkey meat then added a can of cheddar cheese soup, 1/2 c of ketchup, few squirts of mustard, f(ill the empty can of soup) water and let that come to a boil and thicken. I boiled bowtie pasta then tossed that in once it was cooked. It was good! Didnt look great but tasted good:)

    We had pesto-alfredo lasagna. Sooo yummy. I spent Monday making food for the week (Chicken enchiladas, stuffed bell peppers, and the lasagna), so I wouldn't have to cook after work (It sucks leaving at 6:30 and not getting home until 6:30!)!

    Yeah, we get those commercials too. The closest one to me is 102 miles away LOL.

    I like fast food every so often for dinner but my husband doesn't so I pretty much cook every night :unsure:

    I would love to have a sonic nearby... we too are in the same predicament.

    I had a grilled cheese and a cup of creamy carrot with dill soup. I worked my second job at the restaurant last night.

    Tonight will probably be kielbasa and pasta, or bbq wings.

    Last night was quesadillas with red, yellow and orange peppers, salsa and cheese. Tonight was crescent roll burritos. I get the Pillsbury crescent rolls, unroll them in a pie plate with the point towards the middle, fill it up with cooked ground meat, taco seasoning and sauteed bell peppers, roll the tips over the meat filling so that it makes a ring, and then bake it. Yum! It's probably my kids favorite dinner. Dh and ds both like to have the leftovers for breakfast. But that's just them being weird LOL!

    We've been accumulating a small stockpile of leftovers, so I ate some leftover bolognese pasta and DF had leftover homemade chicken soup. We made fresh garlic bread too.

    We had herb crusted soy cutlets, avacado & tofu salad, some fresh fruits, and fried potatoes. It was delicious.

    Oh, my gosh. This sounds like my family. You wouldn't happen to be of Polish descent, would you? This is a typical dinner at my mom's house, and my grandma's.

    Lose the cabbage and add eggs: Easter breakfast.

    :)

    I'm a mutt of european descent. I have a polish great aunt, and my mom's family is predominately Irish, and potatos and cabbage, with corned beef is a real strong Irish meal...I just prefer the polish sausage...probably the aunt's infuence :).

    Today we had spanish rice, leftover potatoes, spinach & artichoke dip, and carrot cake... Being pregnant makes for some crazy meals. My husband just had the rice and potatoes though.
