What's for Dinner?

 Not knowing what to cook for dinner can really ruin the fun of cooking!

That's why we're starting a weekly post series called "What's for Dinner?" where we will post our weekly menus.

 When we lived next to each other, we were always asking each other what was on the menu at the other's house--it helped us create our own weekly menu. Since we are still making our own menus, and still in search of inspiration, we thought we'd share!

Every Sunday Emily and I will take turns posting our previous week's menu, then we'll ask you what's on the menu at your house. That way we can help each other think of fun things to cook! As our recipe index grows, more and more of these menu items will be linked to recipes. So, without further ado, here's last week's menu at my house.  


Leftover Chicken Noodle Soup from Sunday

Shredded Chicken Enchiladas

Italian Nachos (Italian-seasoned chicken, artichoke hearts, spinach, roasted red peppers on pita crisps--so good, I'll share the recipe sometime....)

Samosas (I have leftover filling frozen in the refrigerator from last time I made these)

Leftover Enchiladas

Stir Fry

How about you? Anything tasty on your menu?



  1. I like this idea. We get bored with the same old, same old! What is samosas? I have never had that before. Sounds yummy!

  2. You guys eat well and I'm excited to get some ideas. I love that you fit leftovers into your meal plans. Too many people end up throwing it out.

  3. These, my friend, are samosas:
    I think of them as a middle-eastern calzone. Most of the time they are filled with potatoes and other veggies and are fried. Mine are filled with potatoes, peas, and beef and are baked. I'll share my recipe sometime this week perhaps. They are awesome (my kids love them).


It is always fun to hear from our readers. Thanks for stopping by!
