    My wife is bugging me to tell her what we should eat for dinner, and I have no idea what we have or any new ideas on what to eat.

    marinate it in dijon mustard; then coat it in apple butter, and cook it covered for 45 minutes at 375; then uncovered for another 20-25 minutes. Make sides as you choose.

    Well, if I go with food that eliminates tin foil, motor oil, broken plates, and last year's law books. :um:

    Barbecued spare ribs, mashed potatoes, yams, or maybe prime rib and baked potato, with apple pie--all homemade.

    At least for a start.;)

    Ok we're poor or we at least try to live like it because we're freaked out about not having extra cash when we need it.

    Fried eggs, grits, bacon and biscuits. Cheap, easy, and sticks to the ribs.

    They say that you can give a man a fish and feed him for a day, or teach him to fish and feed him for a week.

    Let me tell you, brother, this is not going to be the last time this happens. And it will be worse when you are working at a law firm up to your ears in stuff, and she calls you at 3PM and expects you to "figure out what you want for dinner." It is not so easy. You'll suggest one thing. She will say she does not have the ingredients. Suggest another - too much prep time needed. You get the picture?

    Let me suggest that the two of you work out about 10 meals that you both like to eat and she can make. Then it might be good to plan a menu for the next week or so. Doesn't need to be set in stone - she can move a meal, or substitute. But it gives her a place to start, knowing that if she makes that, you'll eat it, and like it.

    OK, baked beans with sliced hot dogs poured onto macaroni and heated canned tomatoes. Serve with a glass of cheap but sturdy red table wine, nothing fancy.

    That's how we used to live in style, back in the day. You'll have fond memories.

    :lol: I still get that! I usually say, "how 'bout that wonderful bean soup and whatever meat we have in the freezer?"

    Seriously, excellent idea, Fred. Although our approach to evening meals is we find something we like, eat it for months until we can't stand it, and then find something else. . . .

    I'm actually in the mood for some hotdogs.

    We're going to do eggs, bacon, and some dinner rolls. We need to go to the store again though I think, so I'm getting some hotdogs.

    Hot wings, celery, carrots, and blue-cheese dressing. Washed down with beer or sweet tea.

    My wife and kids insist on it at least once a month. Never figured out why, but its pretty good.

    Eggs with onions, peppers (spicy or bell), and either sausage or bacon go an amazingly long way value-wise for meals, and are delicious.

    Baked spaghetti! Brown 1 pound hamburger, cook noodles and drain, add one can spag sauce. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes and you will have a great family dinner. Toast some bread, sprinkle with garlic and salt, and you've got garlic bread too!!

    We do it here too. My son calls it "backwards day". We'll have pizza for breakfast, and eggs and cereal at supper time.

    It's usually a Saturday that we do it, and at lunch time we start with cookies or cake and have grilled cheese sandwiches for dessert.

    fun, fun, fun!:lol:

    I recommend "taco night". Just cook some ground beef. Put in the taco seasoning from Walmart. Get cheese, lettuce, sour cream , tortillas etc. Put it out buffet style and pig out. Cheap and easy. Plus...tacos are amazing.:bouncy:
