Fridge cleaning dinner of random leftovers: crab cakes, green beans, baked sweet potato, and the last of the key lime pie from Thanksgiving.

I've been writing papers all weekend, so I've been eating whatever I can snatch out of the fridge and consume with one hand, mostly. Tonight I've had a cup of hot chocolate and an apple.

We ate like middle schoolers- grilled cheese and penguin shaped chicken nuggets.

Same here. I'm finishing up a research paper and cramming for finals this week. Tonight was Coke Zero, fortune cookies, a banana, and strawberries.

I've had Ramen for the first time after a looong time of abstinence. I was so lazy today I thought heating up water for the noodles already cost me so much energy, I immediately had to lie down for a quick nap after "dinner".

Roasted eggplant, mashed, seasoned (salt, turmeric, cayenne), and fried with copious onion and garlic. Rice.

I also made dinner for tomorrow night, since we'll be traveling: what Yotam Ottolenghi calls "ultimate winter couscous." It packs well and is super-tasty: http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle ... ink.recipe

I substitute sweet potato for squash, since we both prefer it.

RachelB, that couscous looks grand! It looks like a nice change from my typical curried Mediterranean version.

Tonight's offering was a couple sushi rolls at my local joint.

last night was one of my fiance's favourite of simple meals: chili dogs with cheese and seasoned potato wedges.

tonight...i'll probably throw a pizza in the oven when i get home. we're both exhausted and just have no energy to do anything lol.

my plan for this weekend is making up his cubed steaks the way he likes it :D last time i tried there was some, uh, miscommunication (more like "cultural differences" lol), and while dinner was still good, it wasn't quite what he was wanting. :P

Tonight we dine on Frito Pie.

That's what happens when you let teenagers make the menu and do the shopping.

My return to the stove led to grilled steelhead trout, sauteed kale, and roasted butternut squash.

Last night, bean soup with sunflower seed bread.

Tonight, we're having friends over. I'm making artichoke-ricotta dip with crudites, a Greek-inspired rice pilaf, cucumber salad dressed with yogurt and mint. Something citrusy for dessert.

Lol, every time I pop into this thread I just had ramen. The Pretzels will have duck, orange sauce, red cabbage and croquettes for dinner, though.

New Year's Day we went in the city for bbq. Hubby downed a rack of ribs, and slaw. Last night I made pasta bolognese and marinated vegetables. Today hubby's tummy says it'll be a rice-based dish for dinner.

Please share your apple crumble recipe. Could it be sized down to a 16oz crock?

hi! it's actually a heavily modified commercial recipe from the crock-pot company, but here's my version--

1 pint of apple pie filling (I had canned my own using Mrs. Wages mix; form walmart or tractor supply)

package of yellow cake mix

2/3 to 3/4 stick margarine

put pie filling in crock

melt butter and blend with cake mix (go less for slightly drier crumble; I like it that way) and add to crock

cook on low 3 - 4 hrs, high for 1.5 - 2 hrs

serves 4, add ice cream or whipped cream as desired

my crock is sized for 1 - 2 people, but you could easily cut it in half for a smaller one.
