What's for dinner

Inspired by This Week for Dinner, I've decided to start keeping track of what we have for dinner.

Too often 5 pm rolls around and I don't have an idea of what to make. I want to eventually have a master list of ideas for each season, and this will be the springboard.

Footnote: I'm married to an Irish man who doesn't consider a meal without meat to be a meal. And he considers potatoes and corn to be vegetables, not starches.  I also have three sons under the age of 7, so while we avoid processed food and make most of our stuff from scratch, I'm all about ease and low-maintenance meals.

So here we go:

Sept. 14-20

S: Chicken enchiladas (Bought a rotisserie chicken for S & S dinners--yummy & easy)

S: Chickenchilious with lime chips, limes and cilantro. Leftovers one night and as lunch most of the week as well.

M: Hamburgers/Italian sausage with pasta salad (L.O from lunch bbq w/ Brian's staff)

T: Pizza take-out

T: Lasagna (made double batch and froze one) with salad and good bread (also lunch LO)

F: Pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and baby peas.

S: Honey-Mustard Salmon with green beans and tomato/cucumber salad (Bri had left-over pork)
