What's for dinner, honey?

What's for dinner, honey?
I want to know what you're eating.

I think this could be a good way to see how other people pair dishes and get new ideas.
Tonight, I'm thinking... chicken breasts (I think just pan-fried with salt and butter), my version of cranberry chutney (warm up some cranberry sauce and put in some white wine and Dijon mustard for a kick), mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli with some butter and soy sauce and toasted French bread with carmelized onions and melted brie cheese on top.

Sound good? Anyone want to come over? The husband will eat the chicken and taters but everything else will be untouched.

I love the idea of your husband eating only the chicken and taters. I'm laughing as I type this....Hopefully you'll get some people dropping by that can finish off what your husband won't eat, which seems like just about everything....Good luck!

Tonight, I didn't have to cook. It's payday, and on those days, my husband picks up some take out on the way home from work. So, tonight, my kids had subs from Subway and we had rice with Hawaiian stir fried tofu, red peppers, carrots and pineapple. A little spicy and very tasty.

A party without cake is really just a meeting

Janie, you always start the best threads!

Anyway, tonight it was cold and rainy. I cooked last night, so dinner was: a large bowl of chicken noodle soup ala Progresso, and a chicken breast on a hamburger bun.
Not very inventive, but it's Friday, and I'm eating alone.

I wasn't in the mood to battle with him over food so it ended up being what we call a, "fend for yourself" dinner. I made myself a cucumber salad and had a slice of french bread with pico de gallo piled high on top. Also enjoyed some nice white wine. We were all happy in the end. At least I was happy in the end. That was good wine! Big Grin

Thanks for the compliment nettie! Smile

There's something so completely unstressful about cooking just for yourself. I think I actually enjoy those meals more!

Early Mom's Day meal for me at a chicken restaurant pretty well known locally called White Fence Farm. The best part: the coconut fudge I bought to take home.

Dinner last night was phad thai. I love this dish. So greasy! So spicy! I don't eat it very often but when I do, I eat so much I get sick. (You wanted to know that, right?) And then, I save some so I can eat it first thing in the morning. I would forego woo for phad thai.
