What’s For Dinner?
I have no idea what to make for dinner tonight.
In staying with our Sunday night comfort food tradition, I want to make something delicious but am fresh out of ideas. I have this gorgeous, giant whole grain loaf of bread from Delallo’s, plus some chicken, lean ground beef, mushrooms that need used before they die, salad greens (an alien must have taken me grocery shopping), and sweet + yukon gold potatoes to name a few ingredients.
What would you make?

Paninis are always good!
How about open faced beef and mushroom subs with a thick gravy sauce?
Chop up the mushrooms and put them in a pan with butter to cook through. Bake the chicken with some salt and garlic, top with the mushrooms. Serve with oven fries and a side salad.
Hmmm…a sort of bruschetta with mushrooms, tomatoes and greens?
You should make that! It would use your mushrooms and then you can make mashed potatoes to serve the stew over and then crisp up the bread and use it to sop up the delicious sauce that is over it. And if you want, make a little salad on the side.
Maybe you could pull off a shepherd’s pie with the ground beef, mushrooms, and potatoes? Then have salad and fresh bread and butter. Sounds like comfort to me! Or meatball and mushroom sandwiches with homemade fries and salad.
I was going to say a shepherd’s pie of sorts too. :)
I would do a French bread style pizza. Slice the bread crosswise and scoop out the middle (I would say use it for something like breadcrumbs, but who am I kidding? I would eat it). Then, saute some mushrooms and onions, mix with a few diced tomatoes (canned would work), and put the filling into the bread. Cheese on top (I love fontina, but whatever you have) and into the oven for a few minutes to melt it . . . yum. Salad on the side. And a few slabs of chicken for your hubs. ;)
I would use the ground beef and mushrooms to make the base for a shepherd’s pie, top with a mash of both sweet and Yukon potatoes. Serve with some of the bread and a green salad.
Cook the chicken tonight too, and use it with the rest of the bread for sandwiches tomorrow.
Hope that helps!
Grilled cheese with tomato soup. Except use fun cheeses and add some roasted red peppers to the soup.
Forget all that stuff and make my spiced white chocolate popcorn! Who says you can’t have popcorn for dinner? I do it more often that I’d like to admint…;)
Ok, ok, if you must use the above, make a chicken, white wine, and mushroom stew with a side salad or greens drizzled with oil and balsamic vinegar and you can make herbed croustini (for dipping into the stew) with the bread!
Chicken marsala with a hunk of that bread (garlic bread?)? Or meatball subs with some mushrooms thrown into your tomato sauce? That delicious looking bread alone is making me hungry! I think I could just eat that and be happy.
Having the same problem here…. If you’re going comfort food I say some meatloaf, mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes. I’ve got chicken (smoked & deboned) if anyone has suggestions!
Grilled chicken sandwiches with sauteed mushrooms. Top with salad greens and some sort of herb mayo. And roasted potatoes on the side. Sounds great to me!
Hmm…maybe a grilled chicken and mushroom panini with that wonderful bread and a side salad???
I agree with the panini suggestions. Grilled chicken with mushrooms, some kind of cheese, and an herbed mayo… mmmm… I have been on such a sandwich kick lately.
How about dipping some of that delicious bread in olive oil and basamic vinegar? Or make bruschetta with that bread! I would make a pasta dish to go along with it? Nothing says comfort food like pasta. Maybe make chicken marsala with the mushrooms? However, sweet and yukon gold mash with chicken and sauteed wilted greens with bruschetta sounds nice too :)
i was thinking some sort of panini with the chicken or you could do a sheppards pie with ground beef, potatoes and mushrooms. I know my man would love that!
You should make meat sauce with the ground beef and mushrooms and serve it with pasta. Make a salad with the greens and use the bread for garlic bread or just toast it with butter. :)
Open faced sandwich with pesto chicken and a mushroom gravy for dinner? And taco salads (with beef chili) for lunches this week.
Meeker suggested that we have “bruschetta with meatballs” for dinner this week…you could pull that off with those ingredients. Maybe a salad on the side to use up those greens/mushrooms. :-)
A savory bread pudding/stuffing!
Make a chicken marsala. That takes care of the chicken, and mushrooms. It also pairs well with potatoes. Make a side green salad for a little color, and bread for dunking in salad dressing and marsala sauce. Sounds great to me! :)
Potato, chicken and mushroom stew with bread for dipping?
I’d make a chocolate block to myself in front of a movie ;)
This includes basically none of your ingredients, but this is what I’m having:
i would make some sort of salad, with that delicious bread on the side.
Bread+beef+mushrooms = french dip? With a side salad. That’s what I’d do :)
I am making a healthier version of fried chicken with a mushroom gravy and green beans! http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=10000000491543
