Dinner & a Movie

Over the past few weeks I've been dreading dinnertime because I've run out of dinner ideas...especially vegetarian ones. We've survived the summer on "rainbow scrambles" which is any veggies mixed in with hashbrowns and Tofurky brand chorizo (which is absolutely to die for), beans and rice, and vegetarian chili. Besides these and a few other veggie meals, I never know what to make which means I never manage to plan and then we end up eating out=dolla dolla bills $$$$$.

Determined to recharge my culinary creativity and stock up on some new recipes to try I spent a good 3 hours pinning away. I have enough dinner ideas now to last through the fall I am SURE, not to mention all the dessert ideas...did I mention fall is for gaining a few LBs?

Tonight Mr. Brady and I spiced things up parent-of-a-sleeping-baby-style with dinner and a movie night and I got to try out one of my new recipes. SO YUMMY Lasagna Soup-seriously not the healthiest thing I've ever eaten in my life, but probably one of the most flavorful lasagnas I've ever had thanks to the fire roasted tomatoes...and it was SOUP. mmm. I made it vegetarian style and cut some calories by replacing the sausage with a package of Morning Star Veggie Crumbles. I can only imagine how delicious this would be with real sausage...you can get the recipe here.

I wish I could rave as much about the movie Snow White and the Huntsman (I love me some Kristen Stewart) but I couldn't sit through the whole thing-and ended up looking at this for the last 3/4 of the movie. (Spoonflower has got some geeeeorgeous fabric and wallpaper-but that's for another post). The hubs and I rated the movie mediocre, but the night was nevertheless a success for a couple of rather boring 33 yr old parents. Now off to read and lights out by 10:30. haha.
