Veggie pizza

Here's the place to share your meal ideas for the evening, post where you bought the ingredients frugally and even share a recipe if you would like. If you need some inspiration for your own dinner tonight, this may give you some helpful ideas.

What's on your menu tonight?

Here's our menu for the week:

Not sure which night we'll be having what, but this is what we'll be having!

Chicken parmesan on spaghetti, garlic bread, salad

Breakfast for dinner with eggs, turkey bacon, mini bagels and fruit (Butterball turkey bacon is a good deal at Walgreens this week and Harris Teeter through Tuesday)

Cheese ravioli with sauteed mushrooms and onions and a side of steamed carrots (baby carrots are only .69 per lb through Tuesday 8/11)

Hebrew National 97% fat free beef hot dogs, corn on the cob, green beans and some watermelon if I buy another one this week

Homemade veggie pizza with tomato and cucumber salad

    We had veggie lasagna and peas for dinner tonight.

    twinredheads - that a pretty impressive buffet. You could probably invite the neighbors and charge for dinner! :-)

    Gourmet buffet: Chili macaroni, bean burritoes or nachos, chicken and rice, Korma and rice, watermelon, corn on the cob, green salad and I'm sure there is more hiding in there!

    ybaverage2003 - thank you for the cauliflower tips!

  • ybaverage2003 Aug 10, 2015

    Mashed cauliflower is amazingly like mashed potatoes...I use chicken broth and a little half & half and butter to mash 'em. You can also throw in some cheese. Very good and very filling :)

    RFB - How I love Caprese Salad in the summer with fresh maters!

    Raesmom - you made the ziti! So glad you can eat again!!

    ybaverage2003 - do you use the mashed cauliflower like mashed potatoes? I have seen many recipes with it as a substitute for potatoes and wondered how good it really tastes.

    Thanks for sharing your great menus everyone!
