What was for dinner?

I didn't get to post yesterday... But I baked salmon, and made a sweet and hot Cajun-lemon butter with a cayenne, lemon juice and a touch of brown sugar to go over it. I roasted red, orange and yellow bell peppers and onion with olive oil, grey salt and fresh ground pepper. And I served everything over couscous.

I'm probably going to play kickball after work tonight so I might have leftovers. Not sure...

What did you make last night? What's on the dinner agenda for today?

I am carb loading for the Boston marathon next Monday so last night was pasta, a bagel, and oatmeal....going to be a boing bland week. Can't try anything new before the big day!

I soaked some dried black beans Sunday night and left them in the slow cooker all day Monday. Despite some gloomy stuff I read online about this method, they were ready when I got home, so I made black bean burgers for dinner. Ate mine topped with salsa and with a side of baked tortilla chips - healthy AND yummy!

But now I have like 10 servings of black beans to finish off. Any recipes anyone has are welcome!

Tonight: I was thinking about trying this crab-stuffed chicken recipe, although I think I'd skip the bed o' rice and make couscous instead (possibly with some black beans mixed in?)

last night- grilled tofu with a 3 bean salad.

Tonight- MELT. I love that place. I always order the vegan chili, it's the best.

Last night - the olive salad left over from my mufaletta sandwiches, tossed over pasta. Tonight - something with chicken.

Kelly, we like to eat black beans as a side dish, with diced red onion and a splash of olive oil mixed in. You could also layer with tomatoes, guacamole, cheese, etc. and make it into some sort of Mexican layered salad.

Kelly- for your black beans, try cuban style beans and white rice on the side. One of the best quick meals and tastes great too. Email me at liberalfoodie (at) gmail (dot) com for the recipe if you're interested.

For me, last night was ground chicken burger- meat from Kroeger & Sons Meats.

tonight- caramelized onion and olive pizza. (made by a friend)

Last night was oven fried chicken tenders (a parmesean and panko bread crumb crust). They were quite yummy dipped in honey mustard.

Tonight is a Turkey BBQ meatloaf...it's a new recipe so we will see how it goes.

we had slow cooked beef ribs from findley market last night with a half a baked potato. It was WONDERFUL. Nothing is better than slow cooked ribs and a basic potato. The night before we had braised lamb shank and a veggie mixture. It was divine as well. We had a great weekend at Findley market with all kinds of new finds.

hanks for the suggestion, Liberal Foodie. Beans and rice is one of the two black bean recipes I already know! (Burgers are the other.)

This morning I whipped up this black bean dip recipe, and I think it turned out well! (I did wind up adding more beans than were called for to make the dip thicker and cut down on the extreme garlic flavor; I'd suggest 1-2 cloves rather than 2-3, and add the water last, a little at a time, until it's the consistency you prefer.) I'll have it as a snack with tortilla chips this afternoon.
