    I had canned chili with whole wheat saltines for lunch. DH didn't want any and had toast.

    We got busy organizing the bedroom this afternoon and I didn't have an appetite for dinner. DH had more toast.

    Not our average meal day, but it worked. :p

    We had Burgers on Whole Wheat Buns with Oven Fries.

    We weren't all that hungry, because we had BBQ Chicken Whole Wheat Naan Bread Pizzas for lunch. They were really tasty!

    We had grilled a large sirloin steak, petit filet mignon last night. Our sides were tater tots, creamed spinach,
    Salad and corn on the cob.

    Tried something different tonight and picked up pizza at Domino's.

    We used to enjoy Pizza Hut because you could dine-in, but we even got away from that in recent years and never really tried Domino's. We got a good fuel bonus on a Domino's gift card quite a while back, then never got around to setting up an account to use it.

    Since virtually ALL restaurants are carry-out only right now it seemed like a good time to use our gift card.

    Last night we fried eggplant on our grill side burner. Then we grilled sausage and marinated steak. We had salad and leftover cauliflower as our sides.

    We had a late lunch of frozen pizza yesterday, so weren't really hungry at dinner time.

    Tonight we're having breaded fish fillets, oven fries and coleslaw.

    Gotta love loss leader deals on frozen convenience foods.

    I took rotisserie chicken and chopped it up, with lettuce, chopped apple, sliced grapes and avocado to make dinner salads.

    We picked up some large sweet peppers at the farmers market today. We chose one yellow and one green bell pepper and stuffed them with quite a mixture of ingredients.

    We used a box of Lundberg Parmesan Risotto and added a fresh from the market "sweet" onion, some garlic, celery and a package of ground vegan "meat." All of that went into the peppers.

    Then we roasted some fresh beets as a side.

    Picked up some teriyaki chicken wings on markdown today, so we're using some of our fresh veggies for a stir-fry to go along with it.

    Crankie brought out Chinese and my Mother in law!
    So glad she is visiting us and is out of the city. She is thrilled to see her granddaughters.

    Caramelized onions in the Crock-Pot overnight. Added beef from the freezer with cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, and canned mushrooms today adding sour cream at the last minute. Then served it over whole wheat egg noodles for dinner.

    We had a roasted garlic chopped salad on the side.

    Tonight we had more Beef Stroganoff over whole wheat noodles.

    We had an Apple Gouda Chopped Salad on the side.

    Also experimented with a Crock-pot Whole wheat Bread, since it was too hot to heat up the oven. We had some of that on the side, as well.

    Not terribly impressed with the particular recipe we tried, but we'll keep working on it.

    Tonight we're having chicken drumsticks, steamed baby potatoes and salad.

    It is too hot to heat up the oven, so the chicken and potatoes will be cooked on top of the stove.
