    Ah man I haven’t had fast food in forever and the one night I do you call me out on it. I confess I had McDonald’s last night but only because we visited too long with my Grandpa who is leaving for Texas for the winter and we were starved so we hit the drive thru on the way home.

  78. penniesonaplatter

    Completely embarrassing and timely for you to ask this question now… We had Velveeta Mac ‘n Cheese and, better yet, frozen corn dogs!! LOL! How does someone with a food blog get away with eating a meal like that, you ask? Ha! We’ll never know… πŸ™‚

  85. Katie @ 3 Blondes and a Redhead

    Last night? I can barely remember tonight…oh yeah. We had a healthy greek phyllo chicken pie thing. It was awful and I had to whip up a buttery cream sauce to hide the horror of it. Butter makes everything better!

  86. Carlee Hoopes

    I had some noodles with a combination of yucky bottled alfredo sauce and 4 Cheese Ragu. I added the Ragu to try to make it edible since the alfredo was horrible. Never buy bottled alfredo sauce! πŸ™‚

  88. Kameron

  89. Suzanne

    All I had for dinner last night was the protein bar I ate as I ran out the door for a Halloween photo shoot at a cemetery. You should do a special “easy dinner grab -n- go” idea menu!

    Lucky me I didn’t have to think of something to fix last night! We had our trunk or treat halloween party and there was a chili cook off. I had the best tasting chili ever!

    I love the giveaway!

  112. Roxanne

    Last night, I made salmon, baked with lemon slices, pats of butter and a few sprigs of rosemary on top. Served alongside steamed green beans and couscous. You gotta love couscous! Just pour boiling water over it and let it sit for 5 minutes and fluff. Any recipe that ends with “and fluff” has gotta be good.

    Believe it or not, my 3 year old when it came to picking dinner last night. Her favorite meal ever is Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. We have to have this at least once a week. You would think she would get sick of it, but it must be YUMMY!! I like to Indulge her every now and then.

  143. Live.Love.Eat

    Hi there, last night I had an overcooked chicken & orzo fritatta that I will NOT be posting. Will be trying again because the potential is there.

  144. Kim

    I dubbed Husband to be officially in charge of dinner last night… and he made homemade pizzas with Big T. Pepperoni, onion and mushroom for us, with a cheese pie for the 10-year-old. Yum. — Kim

  145. Amelia

    Last night I was working, so I had 2 cokes, a bottle of water, and a cup of rice. I know, woo-who. My lunch break is at 8pm so I am never really hungry.

  146. kathy

    I ate over at my Hubs Grandma’s house. She made Chicken strips, Country Fried Steak, Mashed Poatatoes, Bisquits, Corn, and Cream Gravy. It was very delicious. She topped it off with Halloween Chocolate Chip Cookies.

  148. Amanda

    We went out for dinner last night. We had pork dumplings, stir fried rice, chicken chow mein, and sweet and sour chicken. It was all very tasty.

    I was really craving dumplings. I tried to make them on the weekend, and let’s just say it resulted in the frying pan and all in the garbage.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  149. Lindsey

    We had leftover pot roast with potatoes and carrots. I added horseradish to the meat for extra zing! It was the perfect meal for the cold weather we are having in Ohio.

  150. KiMnRoB

    Caramel lotion??? YUM!
    Ok dinner last night was chili cheese dogs and baked sweet potato fries!

  153. skinnybovineskitchen

  156. Ali

    Last night we had fajitas. I love them and so does my hubby, but my kids don’t like them. I don’t know why I keep making them. I guess I just hope they will learn to like them!

  157. Meal Makeover Mom

    Last night It was "experiment-on-the-kids" night. I created a new dish called Skillet Pasta & Beef Dinner made with whole wheat blend rotini pasta, pasta sauce, lean ground beef, part-skim mozzarella cheese, and a finely diced red bell pepper. Delish! Only $2.50 per serving too!

    Oooh, great give away. We had garlic rosemary roast chicken with potatoes and corn on the cob and homemade bread. Yummy!


  159. Jess

    I would love to tell you it was one of your wonderful meals, but it wasn’t. My husband wasn’t home last night so I didn’t see the need for cooking. I ate salsa con queso and tortilla chips. Really healthy huh?!

  160. Tammy

    We had a conversation about how I cook on the nights my husband has class and when he's home we have leftovers. But having leftovers in the fridge means that I had to have cooked at some point, right? πŸ™‚ So we had leftovers…2 kinds of chicken, chicken salad wraps, green salad, olive & ricotta torte, and macaroni & cheese.

  161. Bonnie

    I made my husband a grilled ham and cheese (great Tillamook cheese, I might add) and I had a handfull of Wheat Thins and grape tomatoes. I was lazy!

  162. Nik

    We had orange chicken and rice from Panda Express. I’m in my 1st Trimester of pregnancy and I’m just not cooking these days.

  163. Jennifer

    Um, I had Panera last night before attending a birthday party. The hubs made cheeseburgers for himself and the kids. And I’m sure outside of condiments they didn’t have any veggies!

  164. The Steele's

    I made baked chicken breast with green beans and mac & cheese. Although not the amazing recipe you had on here a while back!

  165. Misty

    Last night I wanted soooo badly to make my famous enchilada pie, but my hubby just wanted plain ol’ boring enchiladas. At least some of the flavor was there.Great giveaway! Love your recipes to death!

  166. Brandi

    We had chicken alfredo with penne pasta because my 4 yr old loves the pasta “with the holes on the ends”, salad and carrots too! Thanks for the giveaway!

  167. Becki Madsen

    We went to a great diner for omelets. Mine had roasted red peppers, portabellas, olives and mozzarella. Served with fresh cinnamon and cheese bread. So good!

  178. Branden

    Hold on…let me remember what I had….I am a mom of twins, so the brain isn’t what it used to be. I made a refried bean soup (so easy/yummy) with a copycat recipe of Bandera’s cornbread. Holy cow…I just made myself hungry for it all over again.

  179. Debbi

    We ate asian chicken wraps made with chicken, hoisin sauce, plum sauce, chili garlic sauce, ginger, allspice, onions, peppers and coleslaw on whole wheat toasted tortillas. One of our favorite meals!! Yum!

  185. Christy Lee

    We had pizza. Not even homemade pizza..just out of the freezer case. So I could really use those chex bars!

  186. Anonymous

    I wasn’t feeling great yesterday so instead of cooking I went to Papa Murphy’s for the first time for those who don’t have these, it’s a take and bake pizza place. We had great coupons since it just opened so we tried the cheesy bread, sausage and pepperoni pizza and I got the Garlic chicken pizza, wow was it good!!

I topped it all with a little dukkah (spice blend)–turned out great! I live by myself and get a lot of pleasure out of making a nice, home-cooked meal…for one!

  203. Kim

    what was dinner? Oh it was a salad with balsamic vinagerette dressing. No panni- the cook made a wrap instead and I don’t like wraps so I just had salad- boring huh? But at least I didn’t have to cook πŸ™‚
