~EB, if I could find & unpack a big pot, I'd at least make spaghetti.

considering what my boys can scarf down, I think this is a bargain. Got to type fast, they will be home from camping any minute! Just took the meat out to let it "rest".
one 8 lb tenderloin, trimmed of fat. I trim till there is nothing but one big tenderloin with a "Y" at the top and a pile of scrap meat from the tail. We made a "hasty tasty" with the tail meat the night before they left. I got the tenderloin, (three actually, two of which now reside in my freezer), on sale at Jewel for 7.98 a lb. It's probably got a hight meat to fat ratio. And it's succulent. I'd think you'd have to really reek in the kitchen to ruin one.
I roast mine (salt and pepper rubbed) till medium/medium rare. (no advice, just us carnivores)
lemon/aujus side.
sauteed/reduced mushrooms.
vegatable primavera (cauliflour, zucchinni, red pepper, greenbeen, carrot)
baked taters.
blueberry/kiwi/bannana/strawberry (fresh sliced where applicable) with a Sara Lee "French Silk" chocolate pie side.
Arizona Ice Tea.
If I have leftovers, I'm lucky.
repeat:Now, I want to be clear that nothing I post in this thread is meant as advice, endorsement, or otherwise an act of condonment. KWIM? It's just what I give *MY* family. Possibly with disasterous consequences. I mean, I still hold my breath on quite a number of occasions. It's how, after some soul-searching, my family handles things. Individual Mileage May Vary. Just describing the highly individual, personal, and possibly unique circumstances in the constellation of *MY* family. Happenstance. Could be the *wrong* way, or just what works for *my* family. Might not "work" for other families. For all I know, other families might have *already* had a bad or even disaterous experience with items on this menu.

Hey, can I come over for dinner? YUM!!!
You're not a bad mommy - I know few kids who would be willing to eat articoke hearts and olives! Besides, kids need fat to help their brain grow, right? You just made them extra smart! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I think it's awesome that your kids eat those things. And DH would just die if I made a meal that good!

MB,
If I could get my kids to eat what your kids eat I would give them desserts like that every night! Honestly though, be proud that they will eat such a variety!

Great thread. Let's keep it up.
What will probably be on my table tonight: a potato omelette, AKA a fritatta. Easy cheesy stuff (especially since DH makes it; I don't).
You cook it in a cast iron skillet. It cooks on the stove and then eventually under the broiler.
You cook whatever veggies you have (saute onions and some of the veggies first) with eggs (DH puts milk in there). Top with cheese.
We'll serve with water or milk (if it involves brocolli or spinach, water, because milk hinders the absorbtion of iron). Wine possibly for DH and me.
DS may get a Dare cookie or two that a good friend smuggled from Candada and some Bluebell Homemade Vanilla icecream with fresh blueberries--if they're still okay. We've been out of town for two days. We don't always have dessert, but if there's something around, then sure!

I've been buying mine at Jewel.

I believe they are either called "Strawberry Tomatoes" or "Amorosa Tomatoes". Either way, I slice mine in halves for the marinade.
Last week, I found a [i]thirty two pack[/i] (four clusters of 8 tomatoes each) on sale for around four bucks (if I count and remember correctly). I plan meals around what's on sale and stock up on favorite items when I find them at a good price (like the artichoke hearts, 2 cans for 4 dollars). Jewel has been having some great "dollar" sales lately....I'm in heaven.
And ooooooooh, the filets have been on some great sales. Yesterday was "America's cut" pork chops for about a buck apiece! I use Jewel brand "shake and bake" pork or chicken coating. The pork, imho, tastes better and has less ingredients.... Again, no advice, no recommendation, just what works for my family. (See original post for disclaimer [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] )
Found the larger jars of whole button mushrooms for under a dollar as well. Shishkabobs are a snap between the mushrooms and the larger strawberry tomatoes (about a little bigger than a golf ball). Plus they don't fall off the skewers as much either. I tend to shop wholesalers when I stock up on "snack size" puddings, applesauces, fruit cups.
