    any suggestions!??


    Diced chicken (just throw a couple of chicken breasts in oven for a few minutes) over a bed of baby spinach, tomatoes, and mushrooms, dressed with lowfat mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt pepper garlic.


    Tuna casserole? (Unless you’re Sfardi, of course.)


    Steak and french fries with parve cheesecake for dessert.


    PBA, that sounds delicious, but who is wearing the clothes – the chicken or the veges?

    Another idea would be grilling chicken breasts marinated in some teriyaki or soy sauce, and serving it with baked potato or rice and a salad. Oh, grilling can be as easy as using a George Foreman device if your oven doesn’t have a grill setting.

    My mother,a”h, always used to stress protein (chicken/fish/meat)

    + starch (potato/rice/bread) + vege. She always used to start out her dinners with salad so that she’d fill up on the low calorie stuff and then eat less of the other food.


    Nu, what did you do?


    ehh leftovers from shabbos…thats what happens when u have 2 people but cook for 8

    if you dont have a george forman, what i often do is just take a regular frying pan and “fry” the chicken, but without the oil. you have to be on top of it to prevent it from sticking to the pot, and the pot isnt the easiest thing to clean, but it comes out delicious. You can sprinkle chicken breasts with garlic salt and pepper and “grill/fry” it like that – it’s delicious.

    Apricot chicken: apricot jam and onion soup mix spread over chicken bottoms, put in the oven 45 mins covered 15 mins uncovered

    “roasted peppers” – saute onion for a few minutes and add strips of pepper and saute together until soft – great and healthy side dish

    mashed potato – easy side dish but starch

    stir fried veges – easy vege side dish


    Tonight, I made wraps. I put inside fresh baby spinach, diced turkey breast (store bought), pickles, and low fat raspberry walnut vinaigrette.

    Then, most impressively, I spelled vinaigrette correctly without spellcheck. It was lucky.


    I made mac and cheese with California veggies sprinkled with garlic…

    I ate a donut on my way out to my chavrusah…


    realisraeli- here’s a suggestion if things get stuck to the bottom of the pot/pan. Spray the bottom with Pam (don’t be too stingy with it) and it works amazingly! We do this whenever we make anything that is somewhat sticky. We also spray it on the bottom of our cholent crockpot so nothing sticks to the bottom either. It is so easy to clean after shabbos because of the Pam!!



    Good recipe… Yum!

    Cshapiro… Mazel tov! I didn’t know you got married already! Must’ve missed the post!

    May you have every happiness in the world! Lots of brachos, hatzlacha ad meah v’esrim shanah!


    Tonight, I made spinach and cheese wraps.

    I steamed baby spinach. And sauteed onions.

    And put them in wraps, with honey mustard and grated mozzarella cheese.

    And baked them.

    Dear YWN Editor please don’t allow Mod 42 to cater our Chanukah Party this year, thank you in advance.

    if you’ve got time on your hands: buffalo wings

    clean the wings (the most time consuming of the process)

    cover with 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper, 2 t. oil, 2 t. spicy sauce. put 1 1/2 c flour into a bag – add chicken wings and coat. Bake on cookie sheet in oven for 1/2 hour on each side at 200 C/400 F. cover with barbeque sauce of your choice. Allow to sit for a few minutes. I put back in the oven for 10 minutes before serving.


    ha ha ha ha.

    well tonight for supper, maybe try spelling pasta?


    got this from familyfun.go.com/recipes

    never tried it but it sounded like it could work

    Beef and Broccoli Lo Mein


    8 ounces thin spaghetti, broken in half

    1 teaspoon dark sesame oil

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    3 cups chopped broccoli

    1 1/2 cups sliced onion

    1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

    4 garlic cloves, minced

    12 ounces sirloin tips, cut crosswise into thin strips

    3 tablespoons beef broth

    3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

    2 tablespoons brown sugar

    1 tablespoon oyster sauce


    Stir the spaghetti into a pot of lightly salted boiling water and cook it according to the package directions. Drain the noodles well, then return them to the pot and toss them with the sesame oil.

    Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli and onion and cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and continue stirring while the mixture cooks for another 30 seconds. Add the sirloin and cook it, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until it is no longer pink.

    In a small bowl, mix the broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, and oyster sauce. Add the soy sauce mixture and the pasta to the skillet and continue cooking, stirring often, for 1 to 2 minutes or until everything is heated through. Serve the lo mein hot. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

    Popa, have you ever tried deep fried baby spinach?


    and i’m serous now: i need normal ideas for normal people

    if you want a quick, easy and delcious one pot supper:

    in a deep frying pan or short pot, cut up onion into quarters, and put in chicken bottoms coated in paprika and spices FACE DOWN. add a little bit of water to the pot, cut in potato chunks, sprinkle salt across the whole pot and cook for roughly an hour and fifteen minutes. watch it cuz it burns in no time.

    it’s yummy and not fancy and edible and filling and smells great and is healthy. add veggies on the side or serve a veggie salad. my wife serves it in a plate with mini apple turnovers. YUM!

    sounds like popa_bar_abba should change his name to popeye_bar_abba!


    Very funny 72!!, and 42 i meant no offense i hope you know.


    What should I make tonight? Last night I made hamburgers.

    (Why am I always making dinner? This is getting ridiculous.)

    I’m thinking maybe I’ll just put some sauce and cheese on whole wheat bread and pretend its pizza.
