Today, I made (from-scratch) red beans & rice with turkey smoked sausage. Choco-chip cookies for dessert too.
Friday I made a big pot of chicken & black bean soup.
The other day, I made pecan-maple chicken & baked sweet potatoes.
Tomorrow I'm planning to make some chicken with an herb rub, and either plain rice or saffron rice. (that is, if our power stays on. We're in the
middle of an ice storm here =P )
(I eat a LOT of chicken.)
As a kid, one of my favorite things my mom would do when she was very busy, or didn't have anything planned for dinner, was make some ham & swiss
sandwiches on nice rolls, then wrap them in foil and bake them in the oven for like 10 minutes.
I do that now, though sometimes I use the George Foreman grill instead of the oven. Hot sandwiches always seem fancier than cold.
Keep frozen pizza dough & pizza makings on hand. It's easy and requires next to no effort.
When I don't have any ideas, I see what I've got in the kitchen and grab one of my cookbooks that's arranged by type of food (like all the chicken
recipes are together). That usually takes care of things real quick.
I know I'm a few hours late for suggestions for your Sunday dinner, but there's a few for Monday.
