What’s Cookin’

Here’s what’ll be on the dinner table this week:

Hamburgers and Fries, Fruit Salad
Shredded Beef Soft Tacos, Rice and Beans
Pasta with Red Sauce, Salad, and Garlic Bread
Homemade Pizza and Salad
Pork Roast in the Crockpot, Baked Potatoes, Steamed Cauliflower and Carrots
Bean Tostadas, Fruit
London Broil, Cheesy Potatoes, Green Salad

We’re a little heavy on the meat dishes since I found such great deals the last two weeks. I am going to try to work in a couple more meatless dishes per week in the near future. Any suggestions?

    For a meat-free, still protein-rich dinner, I love to make Hot & Sour Peanut Noodles. The hubby, the 2- and 3-year olds, and I all love that dish! It appears quite regularly throughout the year and very heavily during Lent.

  2. I don’t have any ideas but I am jumping on that bandwagon too. My new goal is to try some tofu dishes. We have never really tried any, so I am ready to give it a whirl! : )

    I sneak “meatless mondays” into our menu all the time. Nothing beats a meatless pasta with fresh veggies or a homemade mac and cheese. Enjoy! Stacy

  4. There are lots of easy vegetarian meals for family. Have you tried Meatless Monday? I work for the nonprofit public health campaign called Meatless Monday ( We have lots of tasty meatless recipes as well as good information on health and nutrition. Try Savory Ranch Tacos, Winter Warmer Stew, Incredibly Easy Wraps and much more!

  5. Thanks for the great suggestions. I’ll be checking that site, Peggy.
