    Last night I made a meatloaf with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. Tonight will be leftovers. If I can get out tomorrow I will pick up the stuff to make corn chowder and that will be dinner for Tuesday and Wednesday. Also will pick up some pasta sauce or canned tomatoes to make homemade sauce for either homemade meatballs or baked ziti with garlic bread and a salad for me.....Just pasta for Rae. Since it's just Rae and I that will be dinner for Thursday and lunch on Friday. When DH gets home on Friday I may make some chili or burgers.....depends on the weather I guess. We have a few brownies left, cupcakes and cookies so those will be desserts for the next couple days.

    Yesterday I made a big pot of chicken stock from the leftover roasted chicken, and from the stock, made a pasta-veggie-chicken soup for dinner. We also had the leftover lobster with cocktail sauce as an appetizer. I was able to restock the freezer with 7 two-cup containers of chicken stock. Great to have on hand for soup and gravy, or even to supplement spaghetti sauce.

    Tonight will be leftover soup, and some kind of bread -- maybe biscuits, and the last of the Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

    Tonight is chicken hibachi with basmati rice and asparagus from the HT sale. Also on tap for the week is a crockpot lasagna. Other than that, we know Wed. is church dinner night and one night might be leftovers.

    The ice and school cancellations messed up our Valentine's plans for lunch today so to make up for it we are cooking a nice meal at home for all of us tonight :-)

    Monday - Prosciutto wrapped salmon with a honey guava reduction. I'm making this recipe up as I go so we'll see how it turns out. Sides are basmati brown rice and maple roasted butternut squash with side salads.

    Tuesday - A tradition Brasilian meal consisting of rice, black beans, fried eggs and salad.

    Wednesday - Loaded baked potatoes to use up the last of the leftover potatoes from our Superbowl party last weekend. We'll have homemade chili (stock piled in the freezer) with cheese, sour cream, and chives to go on top. Salad on the side.

    Thursday & Friday - I have no idea yet. We won't find out until Wednesday the times and locations for all the high school conference games for the rest of the week. I'm sure one night will end up being chicken and veggie quesadillas.

    Tonight we are having Chicken, cheese & spinach quesadillas (with salsa, sour cream and chopped tomatoes on top) and corn on the side.

    lindabates - Crockpot chicken pot pie sounds easy and tasty. I'll have to look a recipe for it.

    Ascherer - It's been so long since we have had tuna casserole. My dad loves it so I should make it for him sometime soon. Thanks for the idea.

    In no special order (except for Friday)

    - Leftover Italian with a side salad - A friend took us out to dinner Sunday as a thank you for letting him spend the weekend at our house.
    - Meatloaf with a veggie side
    - Lasagna (HT meal deal) with a side salad
    - BLTs with cheese or breakfast for dinner since DH cooked sausage and bacon on Sunday
    Friday is cheese and veggie pizza, the tuna casserole I never cooked last Friday, or fish from the Knights of Columbus fish fry (that if we work it - we eat for free)
