What's for supper?

Well, we country folk, call it supper, some of you probably call it dinner. But what's for supper (dinner)? I get stumped so often trying to figure out what I am going to fix for supper and sometimes I feel I am cooking the same things way too often. Tonight I am thinking of having bacon, eggs in a omelet with tomatoes topping it and cheese. That is just a thought and I may change my mind before supper time gets here. What are you having because I would get some different ideas and I think this is the place to get them. Thanks in advance and God bless you!

We're going to have a very simple lasagna. I found the recipe on a healthy site, and you don't have to cook the noodles. You start with some spaghetti sauce in the 11"x7" pan, and I guess the noodles "cook" in the sauce. It tastes very good!

I get a FREE cooking magazine mailed to me monthly from Kraftfoods.com and it was in one of those magazines. Here's the recipe: Simple Lasagna A traditional lasagna that doesn't take hours to make. Prep: 20 minutes. Total: 1 hour 1 container (15 oz) part skim ricotta cheese 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (I don't use this) 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 26-ounce jar spaghetti sauce 1 pound ground beef, browned, drained 1 cup water 12 lasagna noodles, uncooked Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ricotta cheese, 1 1/4 cups mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese, parsley and egg until well blended. Set aside. Pour spaghetti sauce into cooked and drained meat in skillet. Pour water into empty sauce jar; cover and shake well. Pour into skillet; stir until well mixed. (This will yield about 5 cups sauce.) This also allows you to use every last bit of the delicious sauce! Place 1 cup meat sauce on bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish. This way the noodles won't stick to the pan. Layer 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup meat sauce. Repeat layers 2 more times. Top with remaining 3 noodles and sauce. Adding water to the sauce helps cook traditional noodles during baking, so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15-20 minutes of prep. time. Sprinkle with remaining 1 1/4 cups mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Cover tightly with greased aluminum foil. Bake 45 minutes or until cooked through. (Hint: Spray the foil with cooking spray on the "underneath side" will prevent the cheese from sticking when you peel it off.) Remove foil and bake an additional 15 minutes or until bubbling. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting for easier serving. Makes 12 servings. I hope everyone enjoys this one!!!!!

Yesterday I had a post and made Swedish meatballs over Egg noodles,http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2068097.aspx It's fairly easy and cheap! Tonight I was thinking of Polish style stuffed cabbage rolls, it's also cheap and not really that hard to make, with mashed taters and corn! I make it in a large casserole pan in the oven even though it's hot they are Yummy and worth the effort, plus the left overs are better! Hope you like the suggestions! tdemex

OH! You always have the yummiest sounding foods! Thanks so much! Tell me how you make the polish style stuffed cabbage rolls if you don't mind and the swedish meatballs and egg noodles. I like these so much! After finding out how to make these I will probably be putting them in my menus but I have to keep my grocery costs down so I have to be cautious with that too. Thanks so much and God bless you!

These are both cheap meals! And they don't require heavy cooking skills, the more times you make them the easier they are to make ( like anything else) Go to cooks.com and search, they give you a fairly good variety of each of these! Just pick out the one that sounds best for you and your families tastes! I look and get ideas from each and kinda mix and match! Enjoy, I got some more coming soon! tdemex

I like different recipes each day. Repeating is just no no in my family. No one in my family like the same food I prepare. They all need change each day. So repetition is next week at least a gap of 6-7 days..:-) Well, I have a blog called "http://aira-kesh.blogspot.com/" You can find more recipes there for you dinner. Good luck and enjoy!!

when I get tired of making the same old thing I go to my recipe box and start looking, how about chicken la king, or chicken pot pie, or beef pot pie for that matter. Maybe quiche, the other night I made something my mother made us when we was kids and called it goolash, I took hamburger and browned it and seasoned it the way we like, cooked some macroni, and put a can of tomatoes in it and added the mac and had golash. It was different. I sometimes go on line and look for something different too, I get so tired of eating the same old stuff.

Oh we love goolash, I call it MeeMee's goolash because sometimes I add more than the ingredients that you have mentioned, for example leftovers from the night before and it goes over very good! Thanks for the comment and God bless you!

I suggest you try something different like Ratatouille over rosemary potatoes. Not only is it a good tasty dish, easy to fix but also good for you. You can find the recipe at http://squidoo.com/low_carb_recipes or try some of the the crock pot recipes. Bon apatite

Well, it is the summertime and my kids are still out of school. I don't cook much but feed them microwave dinners, hot dogs, and things of that nature. When the kids go back to school I will something to say almost everyday (if their is nothing happening at school).

Well the thing is, I don't know what is for supper either. I'm visiting my parents this week, so I don't even have to cook. I will help mom in the kithen of course, but what we are having is up to her. I think your bacon omelet sounds good. We had BLt's last night.

Last night I had to work a late shift so we had Hoagies since they don't take very long to make and tonight I'm thinking about using the ground turkey I got on sale for some juicy turkey burgers with all the fixin's and some home made french fries. Maybe a little cole slaw on the side as well. Yum! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. I would love to make a nice meatloaf at some point this week as well if I can find the time. I may make it up tonight and store it in the fridge until tomorrow so someone can pop it in the oven while I'm working.

well to tell the truth i really appreciate that you can still have your appetite fulfilled and have supper wondering what to eat. i haven't had supper for almost a month becoz i have to lose some weight and now at night i only have some fresh water and rarely a bowl of porridge instead. hope you have a nice meal!
