Comments on: Monday Madness: What’s For Supper? http://hornes.org/2009/11/monday-madness-whats-for-supper/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Melissa http://hornes.org/2009/11/monday-madness-whats-for-supper/#comment-2228 Wed, 11 Nov 2009 04:18:21 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/?p=1886#comment-2228 I have used meatballs from IKEA and Sams (much cheaper, no noticeable difference in the soup). I hope eventually to try making and freezing my own; not sure how they’d hold up in the soup, though.

Told Terry about the shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches and we definitely plan to try that one!

(And Jay, thanks for making me smile! I think I love the nights you “cook dinner” the best!)

I will be trying all of these in our family’s supper repertoire over the next few weeks/months, and hope some of you can also enjoy the meal ideas posted here.

Melissa, I am curious which brand/where you purchase your Meatballs?? Thanks!

Toasted Barley Soup with Swedish Meatballs
1 tsp olive oil
3/4 C quick-cooking barley
2 1/4 C beef broth
1 1/2 C diced carrots
1 1/2 C diced zucchini
1/2 lb frozen, cooked Swedish meatballs
1 1/2 Tbsp minced fresh dill or 1 1/2 tsp dried dill
2 1/4 C water
1/4 tsp salt
Ground black pepper, to taste

Over med-low, heat oil. Add barley and stir until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Add everything else except salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook over med-low until barley is tender, about 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Recipe suggests serving each bowl with a Tbsp of sour cream, but we haven’t tried that.

1) Get in car
2) Drive to Boston Market
3) Buy lots of food
4) Drive home

That’s it!

Or I’m sure you could just cut your favorite kind out of its casings and crumble into the pan. Once cooked through, I add fresh spinach, cover, and cook until wilted.

Serve over rice cooked in broth.

Bring 6c. low-salt veggie broth to a boil. Add one chopped onion, 2 cloves garlic, chopped mushrooms, a can of drained great northern or navy beans, 6 oz of any short wheat pasta. Add cumin, paprika, pepper – 1/2t. each. Bring to a boil until pasta is aldente. Add 4c. spinach and cook 5 minutes more. Serve with parmesan grated & season with salt if you like. About $6-7 per pot and it’s done in 15 minutes with only the one soup pot and bowls to wash. YUM!

Thanks for chiming in, Mom! We like tuna melts too…I think Jay is the one who originally showed me this recipe. Guess I know now where he got the idea!

By: Mom/Ruth http://hornes.org/2009/11/monday-madness-whats-for-supper/#comment-2220 Tue, 10 Nov 2009 02:21:48 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/?p=1886#comment-2220 I think everyone is holding out like me — hoping to pick up some fresh ideas from somebody else! One of my simple meals that Dad especially loves is “open-face tuna melts.” Mix small can of tuna, drained, with mayo, a little mustard, garlic & onion powders, maybe dill pickle relish. Open and spread 2 English muffins with butter and brown in toaster oven. Divide and spread tuna mixture on 4 halves and heat through in toaster oven. Add slice of cheese to each and top-brown until cheese begins to melt. Good with a salad, applesauce, or whatever veggie is on hand. Of course, you’d need more for your family!
