Dinner Time This Week!

Still in the dinner time rut!  Hopefully all those magazines I picked up from the library will offer some inspiration!  Anyway, here's how we did this week!

Sunday Dinner
The original plan was mini turkey meatloaves.  However, Guppy 1 and I were gone on our adventure a little longer than I expected AND Guppy 2 begged for something different since she was stuck at home working on a lab report all day.  I gave in and Chinese it was!  This lasted dinner and two more lunches for the Guppies!

Monday Dinner
Big Time FAIL:  Turkey for the mini meatloaves went baaaaad!  I wanted to throw in the towel and do another night of take out but I took a breathe and assessed the situation.  I had everything I need for sides but not the main. So I ran to Big Y and bought a....
Rotisserie chicken
Roasted baby potatoes
Green beans with garlic

Tuesday Dinner
Breakfast for dinner:
Dutch Baby Pancake
Diner style home fries

Wednesday Dinner
It was super cold out and I wanted to cook something in the oven for the residual heat! I have my furnace on (sadly) but still anything I can do to keep it from clicking on constantly is a win!
Garlic & Onion Pork Roast
Choice of:
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes
Brown Sugar Dumpling Squash

Thursday Dinner
Cold and raw day with snow/sleet/rain mix.  Pulled out the crockpot and made:
Beef Stew
Buttermilk Biscuits

Friday Dinner
Guppy 2 went out with her boyfriend to a local burger place for dinner.
The rest of us had:
Veggie Fried Rice (one of Guppy 1's favorites!)

Saturday Dinner
Guppy 2 is attending a Halloween party and will eat there.
Guppy 1 and her friend are going to order pizza to be delivered to our house.
Papa & I will be helping my brother move so we will either eat leftover pizza once we get home or I'll make us pumpkin ravioli with sage butter sauce.


  1. What is brown sugar dumpling squash? It sounds good.

    1. Dumpling squash is a specific type of squash that I buy and it's baked off in an oven filled with butter and brown sugar and sprinkled with salt & pepper! =)

  2. I bought some pumpkin gnochi at Aldi and I was thinking that I need to make your butter sage sauce because I think that sounds great. How do you do it??? Just butter and sage?? Do you brown it??? I can't wait to try them :) My husband might just put red sauce on them like normal ones but I am in on trying the sage butter!!! YUM!

    1. Normally I just take the easy route Alison and melt the butter with sage leaves. ;) Lazy but delicious!

    2. YUM!! I don't have fresh sage. I wonder if it would be could with dried sage or if I should do rosemary which I do have fresh!! Tough decisions :) I am sure it will be great!

    3. Did you try the rosemary? That sounds so good too! I would love to know how it worked out!

  3. I won dear how ghee would work with the sage?

    1. Ghee would be divine! What a great idea Sandie!!!!
