What's for dinner tonight?

Posted April 9, 2013



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 on what to make with all the great deals you have bought on sale recently.

What's on your menu tonight?

Tonight we are having veggie chicken sandwiches on wheat bread and tomato soup.

The veggie chicken is from the Boca burger sale at Lowes Foods through 4/9 using the $1 coupon from the Smart Shopper coupons.  The tomato soup will either be homemade (if I have time tomorrow) or Trader Joe's organic Creamy Tomato Soup.

    Zaycon Foods was great. I paid online when I ordered and picked it up Monday. Didn't even have to get out of the car. Wait was about 2 minutes. Chicken breasts were huge. My daughter and I spent the afternoon cutting them up and freezing them. I am just tired of running out of chicken and having to go and get some. We eat so much chicken, especially now that 2 of us are gluten free. I have to cook more from scratch and use gluten free flour. Hence why I want to try and make gluten free (gf) chicken tenders/fingers. Sunday I made gf fried shrimp for the first time and wow was it good. Been making french fries in the deep fryer and wow they are better than fast food fries. Always hot and fresh, cooked just the way my family loves them and I don't have to worry about cross-contamination.

    Ended up doing Asian Sesame marinade w/ some sesame seeds & Savory Spice Shop Asian Sprinkle. Checked off to a nice iceberg salad w/ Bleu cheese dressing (Wishbone sale & ZVR) & couple of Rhodes 'heat n eat' rolls (from TG sale, been in the freezer) :)

    astamper - we enjoyed out free Sweet Tomatoes lunch last week from that same Rex promotion. I have never been to a Which Wich but that sandwich sounds delicious!

    We are having smoked sausage (this week HT) sliced up, with diced onions, diced tomatoes (this week HT), & mushrooms over balsmatic microwavable rice (this week HT)

    This concoction is super easy & takes less than 30 mins to make.

    Kat - that's too funny! My hubby knows the fake stuff from the real thing but likes the fake stuff just the same, thankfully.
