What's for dinner?

I'm defrosting some meat. Honestly, don't have a clue since I grabbed it without looking.


What's for dinner at your house?

Re: What's for dinner?

Leftovers. Wednesdays tend to be crazy days at our house so it has to be something quick or in the crock pot. I usually go with quick because I tend to forget to plan crock pot meals.

So our options are--
Chicken noodle soup with veggies
Shredded BBQ chicken
Pizza
Sausage and eggs

We had this last night! It's one of DH and DS1s favorites which is nice because it's pretty simple. I usually serve a salad too just to pretend it was a decent well rounded meal lol

Ham and sweet potatoes and water melon. My dad and brother came to visit. I put the ham in this morning an and let it cook most of the day. Basically a crock pot meal... But we outgrew our crockpot. Lol.

Tater tot casserole (leftovers from lunch... I usually cook once a day and make enough for both meals of the day). I was so proud of myself, I thought of this YESTERDAY and had the ingredients all prepped and defrosted and everything... very rare around here, lol!

Did you know they make 8 quart crock pots? I just learned that at the end of last year and it's been awesome. We ordered one from amazon.

Also you can use a roaster like a crock pot. We do that when we need bigger than 8 quart.

Re: What's for dinner?

I went bigger! I have an 11 qt cast iron Dutch oven. I use it in the oven at low temps all day long. Between that and my 6qt insta pot I can keep up. For now. But what am I going to do when they are actually big??

I hate leaving the oven on because the kitchen gets hot. I do the roaster when I need something big on for a long time. Not sure when they get bigger... ours are 11, 9, 7, 3, 3, 2, & 1. They already eat a ridiculous amount.
