Just For Fun: What’s For Dinner Tonight At Your House? (& $5 Target Gift Card Giveaway!)

  • Sharebar

UPDATE:  Congratulations to Chelsea at jo…..sea@gmail.com for winning the $5 Target Gift Card Giveaway!  Here was her comment . . .

We are having dinner with my parents tonight, so dinner is a surprise for me! But I’m bringing dessert. Chocolate chip cookie bars. Yum!

I think you should name her Gretchen. Or Gretel. Or Ginger. Guess she looks like she needs a ‘G’ name, lol. :)

 

I love the Gretchen & Gretel names, but I think I’ve got to go with Asia’s name, Mrs. Potts.  (So maybe she’ll be Mrs. Gretchen Potts?)  Thanks for all your fun responses – you guys had me giggling as I read through your names, and I love reading what everyone’s having for dinner!

 

 

 

As I was sitting here trying to hunt down a few more deals for the day, I realized that I had to stick stuff my dinner in the slow cooker! (I almost forgot . . . whew!) Just for fun, I’d love to hear what you’re having for dinner tonight too. (And, I really want to come up with a name for my bestest buddy the slow cooker . . . I’m thinking Little Susie might be cute?)

 

So, leave a comment and share what you’re having for dinner, and I’d also love a few ideas on what to name her (she’s obviously female, because she cooks, right?) ;)  I’ll pick one person who comments to win a $5 Target gift card tonight at 9:00 PM.

    We’re having Mexican rice with corn (and another veggie TBA) on the side. I cook two packages of the Knorr Mexican Rice and add a cooked pound of ground sausage to it. I top it with shredded cheese (some like salsa and sour cream) and serve. It’s inexpensive and a quick meal for church night! As for a name – Cookie! (When I was in Kindergarten, my boyfriend’s mother’s name was Cookie. I always expected that she cooked chocolate chip cookies every day! LOL)

  7. stacey says:

    Haha my slow cookers name is Big Easy! Cooks big meals for my family and makes my days a lot easier! Tongiht we are haveing sausage peppers and onions! Sweet Italian sausage, gravy(sauce), a few cloves of garlic, orango and basil leaves and let it cook for 6-8 hours! Amazing taste and my little ones love it! Corn on the cob to end out the summer along with fresh sliced tomatoes, and cut red skins wedges and roasted in the oven with olive oil salt pepper and a little rosemary!

    As for your slow cooker, I think you should name her Ethel. Don’t ask me why…it just came to me. ;)

  37. Katie says:

    We’re having leftover country style pork ribs, and I’m going to make roasted cherry tomatoes over rice to go with it.

    And I think Asia hit a winner with Mrs. Potts. (Now I have to go watch Beauty and the Beast… :P )

  38. Sarah N says:

    I am trying out a new crockpot recipe tonight. It’s called Bacon Ranch Pasta Chicken. Actually….I better go put it in the crock right now! I like the previous commenters idea for Mrs. Potts, it is a cute name.

  42. Krista says:

    We are cooking in the slow cooker tonight too! I won’t be home tonight and I hate to make the hubby cook after working all day. We are having beef tips from the slow cooker with mashed potatoes. Not very creative, but its a change of pace! The only name that popped into my head was Betty Crock-her. :-p

  43. Lela says:

    We’re having chicken spaghetti, homemade french bread, and salad. Delicious, easy, and super cheap!

    Baked spaghetti in vodka sauce.
    Betty Crockpot.

  50. Kelly says:

    It is just me tonight so – Frozen pizza . For a crock pot name I was going to suggest Penny but I read a post suggesting Ms. Potts and I just think that is so cute.

  51. factord_agin says:

    Sausage spaghetti (I use ground sausage instead of hamburger meat to mix things up) with garlic toasts. The noodles were free, the sausage on sale and the almost free French bread loaf will be sliced and spiced to change its allegiance to Italy. I let the sauce simmer for a good 3-4 hours and dice up the veggies to fool the kids into eating it.

  52. Christy says:

    I dont know what you call them….chicken packets I think. It is chicken, BBQ sauce, potato’s, onions, green peppers and more BBQ sauce wrapped up in aluminum foil and baked. The family really likes it, including the kids.

    As for a crockpot name:……I like Junior. ha!

  53. April says:

    PS. We made your slow cooker roast the other night, followed with French dips the next night. YUM YUM! I literately ate the au jus like it was soup!

    Slow Cooker name idea: Alice (as in Alice from the Brady Bunch…you know, like the slow cooker is like having a maid/helper/chef) ??? Is that too far of a stretch??

  57. Megan says:

    We had Breakfast for dinner…I always have breakfast food on hand but never get around to cooking it in the morning.

  58. Kitty Groebli says:

    Good luck picking a name. Let us know what you choose!!

  59. Brandi says:

    Unfortunately, after a few great weeks of homecooked (and cheap) meals, we had Dairy Queen chicken tenders on the road between karate and football practice. We got DQ coupons in the mail today, so I didn’t feel too bad about it.

  61. Megan K. says:

    We had garlicky baked shrimp, brown rice, steamed broccoli, and sliced peaches. Yum!

  72. Felicia Fowler says:

    We put dinner back in the fridge tonight and ate at Krystals in Decatur, Al! Two of the employees were murdered there last week so for today only 100% of the profits went to the families! So it was a great way to give back!

    Tonight was an easy night for us due to me not feeling too well. We had tuna casserole, and my hubby had grilled chicken wraps (he doesn’t eat tuna). Want to try your roast in the slow cooker, probably next week.
    As far as a name, Slow Susie?

  78. Pam says:

    I made my first Greek salad tonight. Served it with leftover pizza.
