Aloha Friday: What’s For Dinner, Mom?

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blogland anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

So this week, I want to know;

What’s your favorite dish to make for weeknight dinners? Easy preferrably, what dish does the whole family enjoy that you enjoy making? Any Fall favorites in particular?

I think our favorite dish still that I make (you know, not my husband’s home made pizza) is probably my enchilada style mexican pizza – made by layering flour tortillas with mexican seasoned cooked ground beef and shredded cheese, then topping it with more cheese and a can of enchilada sauce (baked in an oven at 350 for 20 minutes). But I’m in the market for something new, so give me your best recipes and I’ll try to incorporate some of them into our menu this month.

    This question is more appropriate for my hubby since he is the one who does the cooking at home. I like his pasta dishes and chicken ala king.

    My favorite is Taco Soup and I put it in the crock pot in the morning and my house smells so good.

    Here is the recipe if anyone wants it.

    My husband loves when I make goulash…my Grandmother’s goulash:

    Brown 1 lb. ground beef
    Add 1 can tomato soup
    Add ketchup (to taste)

    Boil elbow macaroni

    Mix all together = Grandma’s Goulash

    My husband says, it is even better the next day! Imagine that…favorite leftovers!!!

    Easy weeknight dinners are salads, either taco salad or crab salad. The whole family will eat take out pretty easily. 🙂 And usually that means Thai food!

    I can’t cook. Isn’t that sad? My husband wasn’t home to make dinner last night, so I took the boys to Burger King.

    I hate cooking supper lately! Maybe it’s just pms or something…

    Tonight, I’m making homemade pizza with cream cheese and pepperoni topping. Now that I’ve figured out how to make a nice crust, I don’t mind making homemade pizza. Terribly fattening, though, at least the way we make it! 🙂

    I love your blog name! I think it’s so clever! I changed because Simple Things is so boring. There’s a story behind Chocolate Fingerprints, BTW, and I’ll get posting it sometime.

    pssst… isn’t taken. I’d grab it if I were you! 10 dollars at godaddy, or some blog hosts give you a free domain when you buy a year of hosting service. That’s cool. I got a year of hosting from my mom for my birthday. She’s so cool! So I don’t have to worry about fees for a while. 😀
