It’s Friday What’s For Dinner 5-6-22

Anyone that makes a homemade dinner is welcome to type the name of one recipe prepared, in the comments, then we can all scroll through the comments for recipe ideas. This will be a weekly Friday post and only recipes on the Friday posts will be allowed.

If someone wants your recipe and asks, there will be no pressure to share it, it’s up to you. I will accept links only to the recipe, however, it may take me a few days to approve it so I can make sure the link is legitimate and not spam. NO SPAM WILL BE ALLOWED, ONLY RECIPES OR YOU WILL BE BLOCKED.

I find the hardest part of making dinner isn’t the process, but figuring out what to make. So go ahead and post ONE RECIPE ONLY EACH FRIDAY in the comments or feel free to just read what others have made. Either way, I hope we all get some great ideas to make our meal planning easier.

I will not be commenting on the ”It’s Friday What’s For Dinner” posts as this is your recipes to share with everyone.

My Friday What’s For Dinner in the picture above is Hearty Italian Tortellini Soup.


  1. That dish looks delicious, Diane! Tonight, I’ll be making a Chinese eggplant stir fry.

    Two long eggplants, slides into thin slices and coated in a bit of corn starch, fried in avocado oil and then set aside.

    Then a bit more oil, minced ginger/garlic, then minced beef.

    Then throw eggplant back in.

    Then stir in a sauce consisting of a bit of light and a bit of dark soy sauce, xiaoxing wine (or sherry as a substitute), corn starch, sugar and sesame oil.

    Garnish with sesame seeds on top.

    Happy Friday and weekend!

  2. CREAMED EGGS: This was our favorite dinner whenever our dad had to work the nightshift. I make it for my grand kids now and they love it. Easy peasy and lots of memories!

    Ingredients: 6 eggs, 2 TBS butter, 2 TBS all purpose flout, 2 cups milk, dash of ground white pepper, sale and pepper to taste.

    Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.

    Melt butter in saucepan, add flour until it forms into a ball. Slowly add the milk and stir until the sauce comes to a boil.
    Stir the white pepper, salt, black pepper, and chopped eggs into the sauce; stir until the eggs are heated. Serve over toast.

  3. Just hamburgers and chips tonight as so tired plant hunting and planting up at home. Conifers this time for windbreaks and nice evergreen border. Make own hamburgers through grinder and add parsley fine chopped and ginger and garlic paste into mix . Egg beaten and little flour and mold in hand to make burger. We had what Latvians call Garnels last night as boiled to pink shelled and tailed into glasses and added pink sauce like Prawn salads .Then roast chicken dinner.Tonight too tired to bother .Hamburgers it shall be

  4. James’ Chicken
    This recipe gets its name from my younger son who showed me this some time ago. Very quick and easy, but really, really good. Try it with a nice Pinot Grigio.

    4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    Salt and pepper to taste
    2-3 teaspoons EVOO
    (Just a note from me. If you have thighs with the bone, skin and bone them yourself, then use the bones for a small pot of broth. Simply boil them down in plain water until ½ the liquid is gone. Use it as a broth or you can easily make a gravy out of it.
    Put the EVOO into a frying pan, cast iron is best, and let it heat up. Meanwhile, pound the thighs a bit so they will cook evenly. Salt and pepper both sides to taste, but don’t be too stingy with the salt.
    When the oil is hot (hot, not warm) add the thighs. Cook them 4 minutes on one side and turn them over. Cook on that side about 3 more minutes or until browned making sure their juices run clear.
    Remove the thighs and plate them over a bed of orzo, quinoa or some rice, or leave them plain with a tossed salad on the side.

  5. Tonight I’ll be having a tuna pasta casserole bake – pasta shells, tinned tuna, tin of sweetcorn, peas, onion in a cheese sauce. I made a ton of this a few weeks ago and this one is coming out the freezer!
