I have no interesting dinner plans, I work til 9:30 on Mon and Wed so I pull something out of the freezer here at work and nuke it. But I love to hear what you all are having so I can be jealous and salivate all over my keyboard! (and get ideas for other nights <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">)

Posole (Mexican Pork stew with hominy)...............It is absolutely delicous........great for leftovers too! Recipe below.<br><br><br>

Inspired by Julie's tapas, garlic shrimp w/ romesco sauce, steamed potatoes with aioli, bread. I think BrewDad may be cooking unless my head ache goes away. Now I just want to lie in a dark room.

Hobey and Wipaddler - sorry you guys aren't feeling well.<br><br>
Thanks for the recipe, Julie. that's one to print out for sure.<br><br>
Something quick and easy for me since I have spinning class after work - scrambled eggs, homefries (diced potatos tossed with olive oil), steamed greens and miso soup.

Get a handful [or two] of Tricuits or Wheat Thins and smash 'em into crumbs.<br><br>
Make up an assembly line of a bowl of flour, a bowl with a 1/2 or 1/3 bottle of creamy dressing [ranch, creamy parm, whatever's handy] and the cracker crumbs.<br><br>
See where I'm going, here? Chicken>flour>dressing>crumbs>baking dish [flat rectangular]<br><br>
Into the oven at 375; 1/2 hour maybe?

Julie and Hobey-How in the world do you two find the time and energy to cook such tasty things EVERY day?! I'm kid free and I still can barely find it in me to cook during the week. You girls are AMAZING.

Yep. That's me. That's how I unwind after a long day at work,<br><br>
I plan meals weekly and most of what I make takes 45 minutes tops.

I'm usually so hungry, that the thought of waiting longer than the 5-6 min of a microwave dinner makes me crazy!!<br><br>
Although,<br>
yesterday I made chilli and my swim coach came over for the game. She did prep work for her classes that she teaches, and I did 5 loads of laundry.<br><br>
Wow....<br>
we're the partyin' folks, aren't we. lol

Stitcher--I'd kill for a party like that. My dryer is broken. And four kids go through a lot of clothes. You can imagine the size of my Mt. Washmore!!!

Over Christmas......<br>
My sis's WASHER was down. Something was clogged.<br>
Soooo....<br>
Sis decreed that it was "high time dad and his son in law had some bonding time! Go fix that washer!!!"<br><br>
Fixing?<br>
Not so much....<br><br>
The great flood in the basement?<br>
Oh yeah!<br><br>
So....dad and BIL had to shop vac up all the water before Sis realized the mess that was down there.....no small feat.<br><br>
They finally ended up with the warranty repair guy coming over .....<br>
after over 4 weeks of no washer.<br><br>
It was the second trip to the laundromat that made sis crazy.<br>
Plus, she refused to pay to dry the clothes there...<br>
so she took TONS of baskets and bins and things...<br>
washed the clothes...<br>
brought them home and dried them in her dryer.<br><br>
Personally, I'd have taken luggage, and just forked over the quarters and done it all there...... to be done with it.<br><br>
Yup...<br>
I feel your pain!

Our dryer isn't drying so well either; fortunately I installed clotheslines in the laundry room when I redid it last Spring<br><br>
We only have the one, but she goes through three costume changes a day [Catholic school uniform, play clothes and pajamas].<br><br>
I do two loads of pinks alone, every week.<br><br>
And the socks?! My God, <a href="http://400beers.blogspot.com/2005/07/but-first-laundry.html" target="_blank">the socks</a>!!!<br><br>
Enough about laundry ...<br><br>
If I were to plan my week's menus ahead of time:<br><br><i><b>D'Wife</b> - Salad, M-F; Mexican, Sa; Turkey, Su</i><br><i><b>D'Kid</b> - Mac & Cheese, M-F; Pizza, Sa; Spaghetti & Meatballs, Su</i><br><i><b>RM</b> - Steak & Potatoes, M-F; Chili, Sa; Chicken, Su</i><br><br>
So, it works out to grab & go, most of the time.

Worst part of the dryer thing--I had one half dried load in the dryer and one in the washer. It took an HOUR and four dryers at the laundromat to dry those two friggin' loads... New dryer belt is on order. I suspect that another trip to the laudromat will be in order.<br><br>
Dinner (since this is the dinner thread...) Chicken soup and honey wheat bread.
