    Default Whats for dinner tonight?

    I am stuck for an idea for dinner tonight and thru the weekend!!! I hate weekend cooking-- too much to do and not enough time. I try to catch up on all the laundry and housework on the weekends while I am off work - and then there is the running around with the kids and grocery shopping to do. I just dont feel like cooking!
    Anyone have any suggestions for quick easy dinner ideas to get me thru the weekend?
    Thanks
    Lori

    We did a pasta and veggie stir fry tonight--using up some fresh veggies, tomm. will be chicken thighs, potatoes and veggies all baked together-put it in and forget about it.

    Leftover cabbage soup. I'm about to hit a ten-pound loss and want to hurry that along.

    Hahahaha! My 600-Pound Life just came on TV, like I had summoned it for inspiration.

    Sounds weird but I have never actually made pot roast. So tonight is pot roast made with a large piece of bottom round. I find cuts of beef and pork confusing and usually don't venture away from what I know to do. Hope it turns out well. Usually I make beef burgundy by cutting up a round roast. It's a lot of work though. This could be a time-saver and I want to make sandwiches this week.

    I got a frozen duck. Hubby is in charge of that next week end. He is always wanting something different so duck will be it.

    Chicken lettuce cups, with vegetable dumplings, and maybe a cucumber salad.

    I make a big batch of the chicken mixture https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/f...ce-cups-369491, using all kinds of vegetables, carrot, celery, green onion, sweet potato, peppers, whatever I have on hand and freeze it in portions.

    I get the potstickers at the asian grocery and just warm them in a little oil.

    The cucumber salad is simple and refreshing https://www.dinneratthezoo.com/asian-cucumber-salad/

    I often add plain steamed rice to the meal, but not tonight. We have some fresh cut fruit for dessert.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.
