What's For Dinner?!

I have no idea what I'm making tonight, but a couple of weeks a go I made a really awesome chicken parm Chicken Parmesan Recipe : Tyler Florence : Food Network. The recipe calls for 4 chicken breasts, but it makes so much sauce, I made 6, and had plenty of leftovers.

I really love Thai food, so I chose this recipe. Thai curry is so easy to make and super yummy.
Trick: instead of making your own thai curry paste using lemongrass, etc. you can buy the prepackaged thai curry paste in the store (it's really cheap to buy), then just add the chicken, veggies and coconut milk and voila! Done!

We always try to make a meal a plan for the week, and leave a couple days of wiggle room in case we aren't home on the weekends or if something comes up. Not only does it actually save us a TON of $$$$, but it also rids the the whole "what's for dinner" delemma (we also found that we were throwing away less food b/c we had a plan for it all, thus reducing our waste). I had a really hard time doing this at first but it got a lot easier as time went by and now DH and I actually like to sit down together and plan our meals for the week.
And I know this is horrible, but I always like to keep a couple of Bertolli (sp?) on hand just in case we're late from work, feeling a bit lazy, or if my hubby's out of town as something for me to eat.

I'll post better recipes later....but this is one i love and is so easy and it's always in my house...Ground beef all cooked up with a sprinkle of Lawreys seasoning salt. mix a can of condensed mushroom soup with 3/4 can milk with the beef...mix up good and heat...can add onion and celery too.
Cook up rice pasta or potatoes and serve the mush/beef on top of the rice/pasta/pots! yummy and easy to make.

We always try to plan out 4 days of meals on Sunday. Otherwise we end up eating out too.
I love the crock pot and try to do 1 slow cooker meal a week. It usually feeds us for 2 nights. Yesterday was roast with potatoes and carrots, so left overs tonight!
And tomorrow will probably be Zatarain's Jumbalaya Mix with kielbasa.
I also cook a lot out of a Weight Watchers 20 min cookbook: Weight Watchers in 20 Minutes: 250 Fresh, Fast Recipes - Weight Watchers International Staff - Paperback (ISBN 9780470287453) - Buy Books, Music and Movies at Borders
