I saw a recipe for 'pizza' spread with hummus then topped with Kalamata olives, tomatoes, oregano.

I didn't think hot hummus sounded good but the rest sounded awesome so I toasted a slab of ww sourdough bread and topped it with hummus, Greek olives, tomato and cuke. I was planning to sprinkle with oregano but forgot.

So good and I had already whipped up some hummus....everything in the fridge.

Last night, I had smart dogs/hot dogs with chili sauce and cheese.
And yellow squash sauteed with spices, bell pepper, onion, and tomatoes. That squash was good. I was having coleslaw but the bag of mix had gone bad.

Tonight, we are having cabbage and something...maybe a wrap. I got these tomato lc wraps that I haven't tried, so maybe some tofurky and veggies inside.

Last night I made broccoli rice casserole. I haven't had that in 20 or so years. My Grandma used to make it every Thanksgiving. It was so good....way too much sodium, but so good.

And I had some sauteed cabbage and a small avocado with a few chips.

Tonight, we are having grilled pizza. I bought the crust, but will make the sauce. We will probably have salad also. I'm trying to get back in the habit of having a salad along with dinner most nights.

I went shopping on Thursday and bought just enough produce for the week. I've been trying to do this forever, but this time I suceeded.

I made a curried white bean and butternut squash the other night but I didn't like it.
I refuse to toss it since I cooked the beans in the IP, everything organic.....So I cooked up some cabbage and added a tiny bit of coconut milk and it was really good.

Tonight I'll finish that off and make a stir fry/noodle dish for hub...kind of like crack slaw.

I had some zucchini that wouldn't last much longer, and made this recipe that was posted on a McDougall group - it was really easy and really delicious!

Creamy Zucchini Soup

1/2 onion, large dice
4 large or 6 average-sized cloves of garlic, smashed
4 medium zucchini, cut in thick rounds
1/4 cup raw cashews
1-2 tsp. salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. ginger powder
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
4 cups of vegetable broth or water + vegetable bouillon (I used Seitenbacher)

Turn on the Instant Pot saute mode, and cook the onions and garlic until they are soft, adding a little bit of water as needed to keep the vegetables from sticking. Add the zucchini rounds, cashews, spices, and vegetable broth to the pot and set it to manual for 15 minutes. When the cooking time is done, turn the valve and release the pressure quickly. Blend the contents of the pot with an immersion blender until completely smooth and creamy. Serve.

penguinpower, That soup sounds good. Thank you for the recipe.

I've got some yellow squash to use up, but I'm not sure what I will do with them. I was considering soup too.

The pizzas last night turned out really good and just a little too cripsy. I used my new pizza stone (Christmas present from my wife) and they were good, but I think next time, I'll put the top under the broiler first to get the cheese more melted cuz those pizzas cooked in no time at all. I had the super thin crusts. Next time, I'll try the next thicker crust. I don't like real thick crust at all, but even they might turn out crispy on the grill.

Tonight we are having the Diaya boxed mac 'n cheese and leftovers.

Tomorrow is really Christmas, so it's lasagne and salad day. I'll probably make omlettes for breakfast.

Friday night, I had veggie corn dogs and mac 'n cheese from the freezer meal. My wife had chicken tenders and mac n cheese.

I am clueless about tonight. Nothing sounds good to me.

Last night I just really wanted mashed potatoes. So I made some mushroom gravy and broccoli to go with them.
Now I'm over it so have some lentils soaking for mini loaves but there will be some leftover.
Tonight it will be something with lentils or I'll be lazy and make a tofurky sandwich.

Avocados have been super cheap lately, so we've been kind of gorging. We had avocado/tomato/red onion sandwiches on split Ezekial bread yesterday, and for today's dinner I made spaghetti with avocado pesto and a nice salad.

Yum. The avocado sandwich sounds good.
I eat lots of avocados, but not so much lately.
Sometimes I buy the individual packs of wholly avocado and its surprisingly good and a small serving. I generally eat half a large avocado or a whole small one.

I'm making up a pioneer woman breakfast casserole, tweaked to vegetarian style for tomorrow's breakfast to make it an easy new years. I'll be having my black eyed peas with snaps and some jalapeno cornbread and some sliced tomatoes. I don't know what my better half wants--tough decision. lol

I got around to making lentil loaf today (mini loaves) and they turned out just right. I put all but two in the freezer. I'll make soup out of the remaining lentils after the black eyed pea soup tomorrow.

The lentil loaves sound good. I've never tried them but have always wanted to.
I've only cooked lentils a couple of times.

I finally made quinoa flat bread/pizza crust after looking at every recipe on the web and youtube.
I decided on the simple one with leavening but am not sure it's necessary. The one with just quinoa and water looked about the same.

It holds up really well so makes a great vehicle for other stuff and I will make pizza with it for sure.

Worth adding to the rotation.

No problem. Sounds like an Atkins dinner.

Last night I made a vegetarian lasagna. It was good, but it needed a lot more sauce. It was kind of dry. So I only made a small pan of it, but I couldn't eat it all, so the next time I have it, I will add more sauce. The funny part is that I had sauce leftover.

Tonight, its soup and a sandwich...not sure which kind of soup I will have, probably vegetable and a cheese sandwich. I gotta work on eating up the leftover cheese from the cheese party. lol
Maybe grilled cheese--that sounds pretty good today.

Thank goodness for those lentil mini loaves. I need to keep something like that in the freezer at all times.

Nigel, I'm thinking a lot about lasagna lately and planning a slow cooker one. I do not want to precook noodles! I just need to find the right ones. I love the quinoa/brown rice penne so will look for those noodles. I like tofu ricotta for stuffed shells and such so will use that.

A while back, I watched Trisha Yearwood make a tofu and black bean lasagna. It looked good and pretty easy to make. I may try that one next time.
I've made a few tjat I didn't like as well, using zucchini for the noodles, etc.

Tonight I'm having breakfast for dinner.
I have just had a craving for breakfast tacos all week.

I'm making egg beaters, cheese, potatoes, jalapeno tacos on LC tortillas.

Hubs birthday on Wednesday and I took him to a steakhouse.....not a chain and not cheap. Good reviews.

So as you may've guessed, nothing on the menu for me. I ordered a salad and was planning to order the side vegies which are fresh and local, but the server asked the chef you make me a vegie plate which was grilled asparagus, red peppers, red onion and tomato over mashed potatoes.
The vegies were good and I took a couple bites of mashed.

Hub said the steak was good.

There are several high end restaurants here so we will try those next.

It sounds like you didi okay on the veggie plate.
I hope the veggies tasted good.

I went to a Chinese restaurant with my wife a few years back. I'm not a fan of Chinese restaurants. So she got what she wanted and I ordered what was posted on the menu as "delicious vegetables" I figured if they were calling them delicious, they might be okay.
Man, those were the worst vegetables I had ever gotten at a restaurant. They were so bland and boiled to death. I thought they might be stir fried like most of the stuff they had on the menu. Too bad, they might have been good stir fried.

I'm just having a sandwich tonight...hummus and stuff.

I think if living alone I'd just eat sandwiches most of the time. I just get so tired of the food thing and decision/planning/shopping.

I hear you there, Jem!

I wasn't hungry last night, so I didn't have dinner.
