We had a lovely dinner of chicken breasts stuffed with ham, Swiss cheese and spinach.  It was served up with a lovely mustard sauce and rice pilaf. 

I have to hand it to Mr. Thipu.  He can be very good at using up left over cold cuts.

A Kielbasa recipe I saw on the board years ago.

One kielbasa, sliced on the bias
One can cheese soup
One pint sour cream

Place ingredients in crockpot and cook all day on low.

I added half a bottle of beer, salt and pepper. I also used lite kielbasa. It shall be served over rice. Not healthy, but it's cold and rainy here and it will be very enjoyable. :)

a recipe I found on Pintrest; Garlic Chicken with Sweet Potatoes. It is so very yummy, but I have to make a second pan of regular potatoes because DH despises sweet potatoes. And I'll throw together a salad, and maybe green beans.

nevermind....chicken is going to have to be tomorrow. I forgot to pick up rosemary :(

So now it looks like pork chops, mashed potatoes and green beans

Waffles with strawberry sauce and cinnamon-clove almond milk to drink.

Lentil & wheatberry soup.

Ugh. Note to self: next time check how long a new ingredient takes to cook before starting a pot of it on a week night. I'm having frozen broccoli & a veggie burger while my soup continues to cook.

Ah, wheatberries. I always want them NOW and they always want to take their sweet time. (I never remember to soak overnight, either.)

We had pasta salad with a soy-saucy dressing, then refried beans with salsa and chips because we didn't have much salad.

At least I have an awesome lunch for tomorrow. I added slowly caramelized onions and a bunch of mushrooms.

Not tonight, but last night I made apple-cinnamon glazed pork chops.  We're having them again Saturday, at M's request, and M *hates* leftovers.   ;D

Hopefully Peruvian chicken, yucca fries, grilled plantains, Cuban black beans, and rice. I still need to get to the store to buy the chicken though, and then spice it and cook it, so it remains to be seen if this plan comes to fruition. (But at least the beans are in the crock pot, the rice is fast and easy, and I'm cheating with the yucca and plantains and buying frozen.)

Knowing that the Nemo is coming in, we planned for tonight's dinner.  We'll be having sugar salmon, sesame noodles and string beans sautéed with ginger and garlic.  Tonight also sounds like a good time to crank up the Blues Brothers.

I decided to pick up a burrito from a different taqueria and holy cow y'all, this thing is about 50% guacamole. I'm in heaven.
