Family dinners

Check out this post for how this list came about.  I mostly include just the main dishes here; I add vegetables and/or other sides as needed.  I figure on updating this list as it develops.

  • breakfast for dinner – scrambled eggs with shredded cheddar; peas (M insists that they be on the side), English muffin or mini bagel or toast
  • brown rice with black beans, corn, and tomatoes
  • butter chicken – based on this brilliant recipe from Two Sleevers but lightened up a bit
  • chicken chili – a McCormick spice recipe D collected years ago
  • chicken and dirty rice – from America’s Test Kitchen cookbook Slow Cooker Revolution
  • favorite other recipe TBD
  • leftovers – like in The Incredibles
  • mac and cheese – from a box, with chicken sausage and peas added
  • meatloaf – recipe from my mom
  • Nagoya – takeout from local sushi restaurant
  • pork chops
  • new recipe TBD
  • pork loin
  • rotisserie chicken
  • salmon – cooked as in this recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten
  • soup – M likes Amy’s Lentil
  • steak
