What's for Dinner!!!
« on: September 06, 2006, 01:45:16 PM »
Hey - how many of you get fed up trying to think of something different to cook each day for dinner ??  I know I do, so how about we post on here what we are going to cook and it might help others come up with new ideas to feed the family with !! I for one really need some inspiration - our fella's have it easy - I ask my hubbie what I should cook and he just replies - oh anything - keep it simple - so why does he object to beans on toast? ???


I will start it off as it is all we have in the freezer for tonight so we will be having


Chicken Kiev and salad.

All time favorite for my family is when I make homemade Pizza.  Which may never happen again if I don't find time to cook!

Last night we had jasmine rice with steamed vegetables.  nothing fancy. 

so, anybody else got some ideas?

Hi Anja
I know what you mean, I've been at home 11 years, and even if you like cooking you get some days when you are completey blank with no inspiration at all.
My leg's bad today, I had planned 'toad in the hole' which is sausages wrapped in parma ham and baked in a batter in the oven (Nigel Slater recipe) with some new potatoes and some runner beans but I think it's going to be bought pies!

Yesterday we had pizza, 1 bought, 1 made. I usually get the kids to do that and supervise and help out when it gets out of hand, we have salad with it and corn on the cob.

I've got an old recipe from Katie Stewart which the kids love and is quick and tasty. It's chicken breast, sauteed in butter so they get brown (4 or 6), then a small tin of chopped tomatoes mixed with 3 tablespoons of red pesto and about 200ml of creme fraiche. You just pour the whole lot over the breasts, bring to the boil quickly, cover and put on the lowest flame/heat you have on your stove for about 10 minutes. Then switch off, the chicken will continue to cook in the sauce while you sort out the rest. By rest I mean I usually do some pasta with it, I chuck in a few peas at the same time as the pasta. If you do everything at the same time: pasta and chicken, the whole thing is done in 15 minutes. If you want to be fancy you can add some basil leaves before you serve.
Well, I could go on and on about food...Actually my favourite is baking cakes/biscuits, yep, I'm a sad stereotype of the housewife!

Good Morning Nettan, 

Ummm, fish huh?  Maybe I will give your recipe a try and see if it makes fish tolerable. 

How are you my dear?

I'm non-brit :P
If you plan a bit Tiff you can do many good dinners.
You don't have to do all at same time..many things can be prepared the day before and just only into the oven. I often use oven or make things which goes together in one pot.

LOL Spag Bog is spagetti bolognaise , you fry the mince and chopped onion, then add some sliced mushrooms and and peppers (any colour to taste), then add some chopped tomatoes and add either tomato puree or a bolognaise sause and some garlic to taste.
Lovely with some garlic bread.
mmmmmmm

Also I like chicken/turkey pesto and pasta.
Another quick and easy one to make, fry chopped chicken or turkey pieces, with chopped onions and sliced mushrooms, add the pesto sauce. In another pan boil your pasta, then add altogether, also nice with garlic bread too.

Nettan,

I am trying to plan, but getting lunches and homework done every night isn't leaving time for cooking real food.  We are not doing tooo bad, but nothing creative that is for sure.  Tonight I don't have to run off to a class, so maybe I can cook a real mean a couple times a week.  I like the sound of the chicken thing someone posted.  

I also am not shopping, so it makes it tough.  A lot of rice and vegetables from the garden right now.  I will be in sad shape when garden is over!
