  1. What's for dinner? The first thing that came to my mind was the old commercial for beef . . . but what I'm really gonna have for dinner is Turkey! Because we didn't get to have one for Thanksgiving, so I cooked one up tonight and we are going to eat it tomorrow! (Oh, the joys of single-mommyhood!)

  2. For dinner I would love to have pizza but my dad don't like pizza so sticking to the usual rice.

  4. What's for dinner? I wish I knew... Heavy snowfall and mayhem this morning. I will walk to the supermarket in my walkingboots and see what is fresh and available.. it will be a surprise!

    As would be christmas magic. I haven't seen it before but it also looks yum!

  5. We had BBQ chicken bread rolls at my grandmothers house after we helped her put her xmas tree up- I think the kids made more work than help- but it's all about the spirit of xmas, right? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  6. What's for dinner. Fish! Probably some Cod fish ( I'm portuguese) ! Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  7. This all depends on if a happy little house elf cleans the kitchen or not. Clean = something delicious and wonderful. Not = a bowl of cereal (luckily, my husband loves cereal and is smart enough to not complain :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Prawns and chicken for dinner!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. For the evening meal... Pork cutlets with White gravy, mashed potatoes,corn and biscuits! That's what's for Dinner tonight! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Dinner was supposed to be "ham" (really last Thursday's turkey legs) and beans, but *someone* who is in charge of dishes (hmm, hubby??) didn't get the crockpot washed from the other day (ick!), so I couldn't throw it together to simmer away while I went to the office. grumble, grumble, grumble...

    So, dinner tonight? Most likely will be whatever pasta happens to be on the shelf (I think maybe small shells? I don't think we have any of the long skinny variety) combined with a jar of some "just in case we didn't plan for dinner" spaghetti sauce (which by the way, I normally make my own sauce, but when it's on sale for $1 at the store I like to have one on hand). And whatever fresh veggies are in the fridge -- we always have veggies. And homemade bread, which I did have time to throw into the machine last night to bake, creating lovely visions of yummy baked goods in all our dreams while we slept.

    Pretty sad, really. Especially since we are meticulous about planning our every meal for the week on grocery day and then (usually) only getting what's on the grocery list. Good thing we have a few "pantry meals" for days like this.
