What's For Dinner?

What's For Dinner Graphic

Tonight we're doing simple...Simple in that I don't have to think about anything in terms of cooking since my head is still a little fuzzy from yesterday's migrainepalooza! We're having burgers, baked beans and potato salad.

What are you having?

We are navigating through a sea of CSA lettuce, so it may be more salad. I can eat salad for every meal, but I predict the husband will get tired of it pretty soon.

Carrot cream soup and maybe a "requeijão" (similar to ricotta) and lettuce sandwich.

What is CSA?
Anyway, tonight we are going to have rosemary, thyme, parsley, lemon, olive oil chicken thighs with some smashed potatoes with parsley, basil, chives, butter, and half and half. I'm going to saute green beans with garlic, olive oil, and whole grain mustard. I haven't made this in a while, but I like that it has tons of fresh herbs in the meal.

I could eat salad every meal too! There are so many different ways and things you can do with salad!

I've never had carrot soup before, though I've wanted to experiment with it.

CSA means "Community Supported Agriculture". You can buy a "share" of the farm and then the deliver, or in some cases you go pick up, a share of fruits and/or vegetables and/or herbs and/or eggs, chicken, etc.

bean, rice and cheese burritos...nothing fancy here.

The one I do is really easy:

3 medium potatoes
2 carrots
1 turnip
1 onion
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 table spoon of olive oil
1 table spoon of tomato purée or 2 tinned tomatos
salt to taste

Peel the vegetables and cut into pieces. Put into the pot with the rest of the ingredients and add water until the vegetables are covered. Boil until everything is cooked through, then blend. Add a bit of water if you want the soup to be thinner. Check if it needs salt.

You can do it without the turnip, but I find it cuts the sweetness of the carrots rather nicely.

A variant that is rather nice as well is done substituting the turnip with about 200 gr of flat green beans, and then adding some savory once the soup is done.

Karen, may not be fancy, but it sounds good to me! :o)

Ana, that sounds wonderful!

Dar, pizza is always good!

the last of the roast beef and veggies from earlier this week. What doesn't get eaten tonight gets frozen to become beef stew sometime in the next few months. :)

We never end up with left over roast beef. Alexis snacks on what is left over a couple of days so it never makes it to the freezer. Of course she calls it "roast beast". :o)
