What's For Dinner?


Woo! What a day!

Alexis had her first 1st grade review this morning. On the way to the review we ran by the bank and then on to the gas station. After that we went to the actual review. From there we went to the orchard (I got 28 more pounds of "seconds" tomatoes...Tomato sauce and salsa here I come!) and returned our library books. Next we stopped for lunch and hit the grocery store while we were right next to the store so I wouldn't have to venture back out.

On the way home we ran over a huge snake. I saw it, Jamison didn't. Even outside the car it gave me the heebie jeebies! (Snakes are one of my phobias, closely followed by spiders, thunderstorms, enclosed spaces, crowds and heights..I just have them all covered don't I? ;oP) It made a decidedly crunching noise, sort of like when you run over one of those meter things they put down to count traffic sometimes, as we ran over it twice (front and back tires!) and Jamison said it curled up in a ball when we hit it. Ick! All of this and we still got home in time for Lex's 1 o'clock nap and I only managed 3 1/2 hours of sleep last night. A bit bleary eyed, that's me!

So today I'm just posting What's For Dinner? and not a recipe too. That's twice this week I know, but it's been a busy one!

Tonight we're having left overs and I'm having light fare. Jamison will have left over roast beef and rice, Alexis will have left over pizza and I'm having a tomato salad of some sort.

What are you having?

Now if you'll excuse me the tomatoes are calling me again! ;oP

I looked everywhere for Orange Roughy (one of my favorite fish), but for some reason couldn't find it anywhere. I bought Tilapia for the first time, and thought it was OK, but not stellar. I grilled corn on my indoor grill as well. I actually thought the corn was tastier than the fish!

Sorry so late in posting, but we had a late dinner last night. We had been driving around the lake and just looking at stuff all afternoon. Here's what we had:

I whipped up some meatballs with sweet red peppers, purple onion,garlic and breadcrumbs.

Served with spaghetti and a jar of Prego. Yep, I love that sauce!!!! mmmmm I love meatballs. N

Tilapia definitely ends up how you season it. It's a very mild fish over all. It's really good with lemon, salt and pepper.

Nella, I've been thinking about spaghetti and meatballs a lot lately. I've never had them. (Can you believe that??)
