Great idea!
We are having roast beef - with just salt and pepper on it
steamed brocolli
french fries from frozen
and I don't know what else yet....
but ds just ate two pieces of ham slices (Kirkland) and some prunes.. so I doubt he'll eat much at dinnertime....I'm a bad mommy
He is PA adn we are avoiding gluten, dairy, soy, garlic, blah, blah and some other stuff.

All our allergies are listed below....tonight we had sloppy joes(using ground turkey), and shells and cheese(the milk allergic get shells and milk-free margarine), sliced pears, and a milk&egg free blueberry muffin....(then of course a glass of cows milk or rice milk...depending!)

we buy Jennie-O Turkey Store....they have ground turkey, turkey burger patties(we grill), Turkey hot dogs, breakfast-sausage links(we eat with egg-free pancakes), italian sausage(for spaghetti) and Brats! Then I also found italian turkey meat-balls by Foster Farms(good in spaghetti as well!!). That's the only meat our family really gets, occasionally hamburger(if we also grill turkey burgers) or chicken(but I HATE to cook chicken(I freak about Ecoli/salmanella...so I over cook it until it's too dry to even swallow!!!)

I have used Jennio (sp?) turkey (all cuts) and have called to make sure that they are peanut free.
I bought the beef at Costco - I just rinse any cut of meat.

Tonight for me and DH it will be pasta with tomato sauce and eggplants either grilled or breaded with cornflake crumbs and sauted (my dad gave us fresh eggplants he grows).
For DS some tomato sauce (plain - he hasn't eaten pasta since he choked on food a couple of weeks ago). I will make bread sticks out of homemade pizza dough so he can dip it in the sauce if he wants to and/or pancakes. He's picky and sometimes I make pancakes for him for dinner.

Yes, my otherwise fish-loathing DD will eat fresh salmon if it is glazed with orange juice-- so I pan sear fillets with orange juice, olive oil, and a touch of onion salt. Then top with cilantro just before serving. She loves this with risotto... we grow our own cilantro and culinary lavender (which I use in the risotto.... orange zest and a few lavender buds in it is awesome.)
Tonight, though? Nothing so high-brow.
We're doing oven-roasted vegetables (cauliflower, carrots, onion, red sweet peppers) and SPAM. Yes..... spam. One of my daughter's favorite foods. Well, we use SPAM lite. Which still isn't exactly health food, now is it?

Last night we had fruit, homemade peach 'ice cream' and BBQ potato chips. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] Dad's out of town. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

This is a great topic for a thread though I must admit, I do think it belongs in the Off Topic section...sorry!
Last night, we ordered out for Chinese. DS1 obviously does not eat any of it and we are very careful in our kitchen when we order it, etc. He had leftover mac&cheese, sliced peaches and milk.
Anyway, we had wonton soup, steamed dumplings, Shrimp Lo Mein and Beef with Garlic sauce (has lots of veggies in it too).
I have no idea what we will do tonight. I guess I should make something since we ordered out last night.

Last night we had turkey enchiladas. Very easy recipe and very good and freezes well so I usually freeze half for another night.
brown 1 lb of ground turkey
add cumin / cayene to taste
add half of one can of diced tomatoes (Fire roasted are good - with green chilis even better) and 1 cup salsa (pace picante medium)
1 brick of cream cheese (the 1/3 fat stuff is perfect)
1 or 2 boxes of thawed (squeeze the water out) frozen spinach
a can or two of mushrooms, drained (optional)
Stir it all together let it simmer for 15 minutes
Fill tortilla wrappers with mixture - lay in a baking dish (or just layer like lasagna) - top with rest of diced tomatoes and salsa - and some shredded cheese (it doesn't even need it) and bake for 20 mins or so.
Last night I just put the mix in warmed tortillas and skipped the baking part.
DS had leftover homemade chicken soup, brocolli, and fritos.

Chanda - would you (or have you?) posted a recipe for milk free blueberry muffins? Yum![/b]
the recipe is from Sophie safe cooking and it's for apple muffins(but I added a small can of blueberries this last time....
1/4 cup of milk free margarine
1/3 cup sugar
3 cups of flour(oat flour if, wheat allergic)
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup rice milk
2 cups finely chopped apples(such as granny smith).....or I used a small(maybe 4oz) can of blueberries, but probably any fruit would work, or even milk-free choc chips.
Then sprinkle the top of each muffin(once scooped 2/3 full) with cinnamon and sugar blend(like a dusting)
bake 400 for 25 minutes. Makes about 24.
edit, for the sloppy joes, I just buy a can of the manwich sloppy joe sauce and pour into 1lb of cooked ground turkey...VERY easy kid meal [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Anyway, tonight we had salmon with Sante Fe Sauce (McCormick bottled seafood sauce), Rice Pilaf (Near East) and a green salad. I mixed chopped up flat leaf parsley (from my pot outside) into the rice. Lemon wedges to squeeze on top too.
The kids absolutely refuse to eat "regular fish" so I made them fish sticks (Mrs. Pauls).

The place that's safe for me here--Poblano's--has the most incredible marinade: pineapple and lime juices. Wowza.
I won't post my dinner, but it's the same as my lunch, and it will come from McD's--okay, you dragged it out of me: a grilled snack wrap with no sauce. Leaving work now to drop by and get one. Oh boy.

McCobbre --- fajitas are SO easy to make at home! You just have to think about it a day ahead so you can marinate the chicken and the onions!
I'm planning to have "Fajita Night" for all my new German friends that I'll make this fall in Munich [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Yeah Adrienne--DH makes them for me, but it's not quite the same as smelling the aroma and hearing the sizzle as they're being brought out to your table--and then gorging yourself.
That marinade is delish, though. DH is going to try adding pineapple to the mix. And I'm guessing when I move northward, his is my absolute best hope for fajita (also was wondering out loud earlier this week while tossing fridge stuff if we'll ever be able to find queso fresco up north--will miss that for sure).
I still remember when we lived in Illinois, he asked the manager of a "TexMex" restaurant over to our table and proceeded to give him a recipe for making real (good) salsa. DH lived in Texas beforehand long enough to learn a few tricks and to build up his expectations. I have no idea why the manager was offended . . . .

Tonight we were craving a traditional Greek dinner so my sister and I cooked souvlaki (lamb kebabs) with tzatziki sauce (garlic/lemon yogurt sauce). (the husbands were out playing golf!)
We also had orzo with feta cheese mixed in and a green bean stew which is basically fresh green beans, garlic, stewed tomatoes and butter. (My sister rocks this dish!)
It was oh so good, but expensive to put everything together. We usually eat a lot simpler than this.
Usually soup and muffins, baked chicken and a veggie or "pirate stew" which my kids love just because they think pirates used to really eat it! LOL

I thought of this tread last night while I was preparing a dish from my youth--Saucy Franks! It's a sweet-tangy sauce over sliced hotdogs, green peppers and onions. I served it over rice and had steamed green beans on the side. Yummy! (Comfort food here--I haven't made this dish in over 15 years, I'm sure!)
DS kept saying, "Ohhhhh, that smells good! I can't wait for dinner!" Then, when I served it, "I'm not eating that. I don't eat anything that doesn't look good!" Oh well, he ate plain white rice, raw sliced green peppers, and steamed green beans.

It's just my own thing that I made up. Cut up a boneless chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Saute in a little vegetable or olive until no longer pink. Sprinkle with some garlic powder and black pepper. Throw in some sliced peppers and onions (and any other veggies you like...mushrooms, etc), a jar of tomato sauce mixed with some water to thin it out and just simmer for about an hour. While that's simmering, boil a large pot of water and add your favorite pasta. Once the pasta is done, the cacciatore will be done and you are ready to eat!
ETA: I used Francesco Rinaldi Original tomato sauce.

Well I made a winner tonight. We have are currently avoiding gluten, egg, soy and dairy on top of peanut. DS has always liked penne with red sauce - oh we are avoiding garlic and soy too. I have never made red sauce without garlic. But I did tonight.
We had Quinoa noodles (these are quinoa and corn flour)
With home made red sauce that I made with
1 pound ground beef - browned
added I whole large sweet onion chopped fine
about 1/2 cup carrots diced finely
2 large cans tomatoe paste
1 can of diced tomatoe
about 14 oz ? of water
a splash of red wine vinegar
a teaspoon of sugar
salt at every stage
1/2 cup parsley chopped fine
couple of bay leaves
chopped shallots
lots of basil - fresh, dried and frozen chopped
teaspoon of black pepper
teaspoon of oregano
pinch of red pepper flakes
I think that's it. Once the meat was browned I added the veggies and let them get translucent, then the tomotoes, water, bay leaves, sugar, red wine vinegar and let it cook for a while (20 mins) then I started adding the other herbs.
I also made steamed cauliflour but forgot to serve it! DUH!
The noodles were good and the sauce was yummy. I froze the left overs and have a serving for ds's lunch on Monday.
Next time I am going to puree some spinach and sneak that into the sauce.

I bought some Tyson chicken breasts today (raw), but I'm so paranoid! DANG IT!
It says natural flavoring, ugh.
Everytime I eat the breaded chicken nuggets, I can't eat them because they taste really...off to me.

Tonight's dinner was good, but relatively boring. Chipotle burgers on WFM GFP prairie bread, okra stew.
A couple nights ago, I made up some chicken kebabs (rubbed in all manner of herbs, then brushed with olive oil and agave nectar and a bit of red wine vinegar) and served them over brown rice, with a tahini garlic sauce. We also had grilled summer squash.
On the way back from a wedding yesterday, I pigged out on cooler food: broiled hanger steak (garlicky balsamic mustard marinade), kidney bean salad . . . also had cheese and cole slaw in there.
We skip soy, gluten, peanuts, papaya, and moldy cheese. And if I ever feeling comfortable dropping weight again, I'll revert to vegetarianism.
I'm hungry again. *sigh*

Krasota--that does not sound boring. Okra prepared well can be very exciting.

I'll really participate in this thread when I'm able to. But I have to tell someone what I had for dinner--I can't believe I did this but feel absolutely no regret:
an entire quart of Blue Bell Buttered Pecan ice cream. :evilgrin:
I was going to the frozen food section to get something to nuke in the microwave I have and I was feeling scared about possible xc with shellfsh with the Lean Cuisines. That ice cream was staring me in the face, I tell ya. Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you may move away from the Blue Bell distribution area. Hey--that was in the lectionary texts today.

McCobbre, On Saturday my DH was golfing,Chris was at work and my Dd was working at the ice cream shop. My little guy was with me.
I took him to get him a Sub he was asking for and I got one for my DD. I took hers over to work and decided my dinner would be a hot fudge sundae.
My son asked if he could get one to and I told him as long as he promised to eat his dinner. I had my DD make him a very small one and YES I had large. I took the sundae over to my moms and sat by the pool eating it. My son ate all of his sub so I felt ok with doing that.
MY DH came home and couldn't believe that was my dinner. It wasn't as if I gave my son only ice cream. Sometimes it is fun to goof off for the day.
Now yesterday we had a birthday cookout for my Dh. It consisted of Hamburgers,hotdogs,chicken,mac salad,potato salad,jello salad,baked beans, cake and ice cream. Lots of fun

"Walla walla sweets" == Washington sweet onions
(Probably where you live, (edited), you'd be getting Vidalias instead.)

And a late addition:
Foil packet caramel apples..... olive oil, brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon with sliced Gala apples (oh well-- ours aren't quite ready). Very yummy over graham crackers.
And McCobbre? Sounds [i]fabulous![/i] Of course, I would [i]never just have[/i]... Oh.
Umm, well then, I would [i]never POST about..[/i] Oh. Nevermind then. Pass the spoon.

Last night we had chilean sea bass
(great recipe....mash up some butter on a piece of wax paper & squeeze lime juice & rind into it. Mix it up, roll it in the paper and put it in the freezer).
place sea bass on grill, cut the frozen butter into little slices put on top. Cook the sea bass about 20-25 minutes DO NOT TURN. I usually salt and pepper when it is a little more than 1/2 way done.
Prepare salsa & refrigerate ahead of time...chop tomatoes, green onions, diced jalapeno pepper a squeeze of lime juice. Put on top of fish
We also had grilled sweet potatoes, a salad with nearly every fresh vege you can imagine...radishes, carrots, green onions, tomatoes (we have great Jersey tomatoes this time of year), artichoke bottoms, broccoli, cauliflower, red peppers, avocado. I used arugula and romaine lettuce (both dark leafy sources of iron btw)
and corn on the cob....
It was a fab dinner.
