I'm making One Pot Paprika Chicken Thighs over brown rice. Probably should serve with a spinach salad since I have tons of spinach.

Crispy oven tacos, roasted broccoli.

I'm trying to cook all month too, though I might allow for one pizza night when Dh is traveling.

I buy frozen pizzas from Costco and we have those about once a week. They come out to $3-4 per pizza, so not too bad. We make 2-3 depending on how many people are home. I love having them because anyone in my family can cook them, everyone likes them, and they are cheap!

I didn't like pizza as a kid. I have figured out as an adult that I don't like the thick bread. I like thin crust pizzas. I'm sorry you deal with food allergies. We've been VERY lucky not to have to worry about food allergies.

I grew up cooking from scratch and cooking for friends with food alergies (making wheat and corn free in the 80's and 90's) so dealing with food allergies hasn't been that bad for me. I can make an amazing pizza that we can all eat, some just choose to not. It just takes time. I can't out source much of my cooking.

Would you be willing to share your amazing allergy friendly pizza recipe?

I have a couple do you like thick or thin crust?

And I really feel like the key to good dairy free pizza is to use thinly sliced apples and skip any cheese substitute.

We usually get Papa Murphy's if they have a special but I might just add those to my Costco list instead!

Korean Beef Bowls tonight. I had leftover bibimbap sauce that made them even better.

Last night dh grilled burgers and I had a big salad with some leftover steak sliced on top.

I think tomorrow we'll have a variety of leftovers.

4th of July we always throw things on the grill and have watermelon, sweet corn on the cob, and chips. Once a year we make "puppy chow" and take it to the fireworks.

We almost never eat out or order takeout. It doesn't fit into our budget. I get quite tired of cooking every day, week in and week out, all year. I try really hard to make enough for 2 nights, whenever possible. My DH has finally started doing some cooking recently and that has helped quite a bit.

Oops, I said the wrong thing. I'm making cheddar grits. I just buy the canister of instant grits from the grocery, make them as directed (except I use chicken bone broth instead of water) and then at the end add a little half and half and lots of sharp cheddar cheese.

Polenta is a little harder. The recipe I use for it is 3 cups chicken broth, 1 cup cornmeal, 3 TBSP butter, and 1 tsp salt. Bring chicken broth, butter and salt to a boil, whisk in cornmeal, reduce to simmer and cover, whisking often. It has to cook for quite a bit of time like 30 minutes or more. Also if you like smoother, softer polenta, you can use up to five cups of liquid. Then at the end you can stir in cheese or whatever you want. If you have leftovers, you can put them into a square dish in the fridge and then the next day cut into squares and saute in olive oil in a pan to make the outsides crispy. I don't usually have as much success with making them crispy but just stuck to the pan. Maybe you would have better luck than I.
