  • i work really hard to cook JUST enough so we dont throw things out, or to make a double batch of something we like, to freeze. I also love making that roast chicken- you can make 3- 4 meals out of one chicken! especially if you make your own broth from the carcass (i cut it up myself).

  • Possibly for Dinner...
    General Tsao’s Chicken, strif fry veggies, fried brown rice
    Salisbury Steak, homeade mashed potatoes/gravy, fresh green beans
    Broiled chicken, scalloped potatoes, Frozen veggie
    Lasagna (half for sick friend)
    Catfish Stew (African Dish), over brown Rice, Broccoli
    Moms' Pasta Salad , Broiled Chicken, veggie?
    Balsamic Glazed Salmon Fillets, Sweet Potatos, Green Beans

    ...but that broccoli soup on the first post sure does sound good! I might swap a meal for a soup or have it on the lunch menu with a simple sandwich.

    Lunch so far:
    Sandwich, Soup
    BLT sandwich, chips, apple
    Buffalo Chicken Wraps, Fruit
    Tuna Sandwich, chips, Fruit

  • Snoober I'm working on making just enough for one day too. I find that we don't like leftovers as much as we used to and I can't afford to do that.

  • yum- catfish stew sounds awesome! i love ethnic recipes. i'm half arabic so im used to eating not-so-typical foods, and i enjoy the heck out of them. i dont really plan lunches- its just me and my 3 y/o girl and 1 y/o old boy- they usually request PB&J or cheese/crackers/lunchmeat and a fruit, so thats good for my pocket!

  • Half Arabic..very cool. I've never had or even thought about having Arabic food. Is it similar to any other ethnic foods? I actually just sent the Fish Stew recipe to a hometown friend by request so I'll send it to you too.
    If I don't plan lunches I'll end up eating PB & J or ordering out...and I'm pregnant so I can really do some financial damage, lol. Plus I'm trying to get hubby to eat out less during the week so I have to plan and make them the night before.

  • I'm not a planner, but I had to roast my turkey today so I know we'll have creamed turkey on buns or over mashed potatoes one night, and I'll do something else with some of it another night, and the rest will be frozen for later - including approximately 16 quarts of stock. No ideas beyond that, but I really slacked last week so I have to cook well this week, lol!
