What's for dinner?

I'm curious to see how other people eat, especially since we've got both a big group of foodies and people working to clean up their diets.

My dinner consisted of:

Big garden salad
Turkey meatloaf
Acorn squash with butter and brown sugar

Dessert is a Virgil's Cream Soda

Right now, I think tomorrow will be another big salad, broiled salmon, and steamed broccoli with fruit salad, cottage cheese, and honey for dessert.

What about the rest of you? How far ahead do you plan your meals, if you do at all?

I haven't made it yet, but it will be

-"Mulch" (Essentially a diced salad of Kale, Chard, Broccoli, Cucumbers, and Italian Parsley - I hit it with the ninja food processor for a second or two; looks like tabbouleh)
-Grilled Chicken breast with mushrooms and maybe potatoes (not sure if I want to make those or save them for tomorrow).

If I need desert I'll have an apple or some cottage cheese.


I plan out my meals for days, since if I don't have the stuff on hand and ready to make, I'll go the easy route and hit a fast food place.

Taylor Ham sandwiches and a Yuengling Porter!!!!

It's a delicassey in the PA/NJ area and I literally just got back from visiting for the weekend with some goodies I can't buy in the Boston metro area. On Saturday I had a cheesesteak from Pat's, one from Tony Luke's and another Pat's the next morning for breakfast. I was eating like I was going to prison.

I usually eat pretty healthy during the week. And after this weekend, I might need to go vegan for a week and not eat anything that casts a shadow or isn't the deepest shades of green. I see plenty of baby spinach & kale in my future.

Left-over scratch-made chicken mole.

Made a fantastic mole that we roasted the chicken in, then used some of the liquid to make some rice as a side.
Good produce for fresh guacamole and salsa to go with a batch of black bean and cheese flautas as a side.

Took a bit to throw together, but it turned out fuck tasty.

we plan ahead about 10 to 15 minutes, tops

tonight it was home-made chicken fajitas with onions/peppers/etc and black beans.

other frequent dishes:
thai-fry with onions, peppers, and other veggies with chicken or beef all done up in a peanut sauce over your choice of rice or noodles, sriracha to taste

same as above, minus the peanut sauce

we do a slow-cooker roast from time to time, with sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini and misc veggies

once in a while, though, we go rogue and get carryout pizza

now that colder weather is getting closer, we'll start doing more soups, chilis, etc as well. those are usually a "throw it in the crock pot on the way to work" kind of deal.

Some peanuts, some carrots, and two turkey hotdogs in wheat buns with ketchup/mustard/relish.


Normally, I would "plan ahead" 10 min. before going to the grocery store on Saturday, then cooking 4-5 nights' worth of food on Sunday eve (or morning with the crock pot). So I don't have to spend much time dealing with it during a typically unpredictable week. I was road-tripping this past weekend.

Besides, I went running tonight and had this pack of six hot dogs that I needed to get out of my freezer starting last night.

I am making dhal, served with yogurt and flat bread.

I usually plan what the next meal is the night before, so I can get meat out of the freezer to thaw. Or pick up items I don't have, on my way home from work
I also make a basic plan of the weeks meals in my head when I do the weekly shopping.

LIAR! You don't have winter down there.

I love the shit out of the crock pot. I use it at least twice a week most of the time. Country ribs, chuck eye roast, beef stew, chili, soups, you name it. Hell, thanks to Crock Pot 365, I learned how to use my crock pot to make yogurt!

So, I go to Pat's which I try to do every few visits back. I convince my cousin to take the ride in with me (which is only about 45 minutes). I love Pat's. I don't feel it's overrated by any stretch. We each buy 3, 1 for now, 1 for loved ones at home and 1 for eating later on for breakfast or drunk feasting. Halfway thru the 1st one, we decide we need another in order to preserve our spares.

We consider Geno's but we've been there. Neither of us had been to Tony Luke's. We ride down and take a break at his sports bar and enjoy two lagers. Then we go and get our cheesesteaks.

1st, the wait is too long for a cheesesteak. I get the "made to order" aspect but it's not like a big as pile of shaved prime rib on the grill is a bad thing (like they do at Pat's). So it took a solid 15 minutes for us to get our steaks.

First bite, we both kind of look at each other in disappointment. I felt the meat was kind of bland and wasn't as cooked as I like it (I like it just a little more done). It needed another 2 minutes on the flat top. However, as we dug into it, we encountered more of those "money bites" (you know what I speak of) where it was really good.

All in all, Tony Lukes is a good cheesesteak, and certainly nothing I can get up my way. But I don't think I'll be back unless I'm in that section of town and that's where we're going. I'll just go to Pat's or D'Alessandro's in Manayunk.

Your thoughts?

Awesome website. I need to use the crock pot more often this year. It currently collects dust.

I'm big into my cast iron dutch oven though. That's where I make most of my chilis, soups, stews, you name it. The thing is $$$. I love it.

The cheesesteaks there are mediocre. Their Roast Pork, Broccoli Rabe and Sharp Provolone is where it is at.

Tonight's dinner was homemade Jambalaya with cauliflower rice and a huge pile of kale with a balsamic drizzle.

The Jambalaya was made with homemade broth and tomatoes from my parent's back yard. Surprisingly good.

I wanted to get that, but felt that I needed to sample their cheesesteaks.

Quick Hoppin John's, anyone? I got that recipe on the back of a Goya black eyed peas can. I basically use turkey kielbasa or turkey andouille, peppers, onions and spice it up to my tastes. It's a healthy meal that has a good guilty feel to it (but it's essentially just low fat meat and beans). Great leftovers too.

Made some lemon-dill baked salmon with Italian peas (sautéed garlic & onion, then add a little chicken broth and 16 oz frozen peas), and Italian spiced pasta as the other side.
