It’s Friday What’s For Dinner 02-17-23

Anyone that makes a homemade dinner is welcome to type the name of one recipe that you 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, but only to the recipe and NO VIDEO. It may take me a day to approve it so I can make sure the link is legitimate and not spam. 


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.

My “It’s Friday What’s For Dinner” in the picture above is Hearty Beef Bourguignonne. Don’t let the name scare you, this really is an easy meal.


  1. My recipe is homemade chicken tenders, very simple. Cut up chicken breast which is dipped twice. First, dip in beaten eggs and then rolled in flour. Let set a few minutes. Then dip in eggs again and rolled in panko. The panko gives the tenders a crunch. And then fry. I serve with homemade mashed potatoes with chives stirred in. To top it off, ranch dressing is served for dipping or sometimes I’ll use tartar sauce. Yummy!

  2. Beef, vegetables and noodles all swimming in a brown gravy. I can actually smell it cooking now.
    For us, Baked salmon stuffed with crabmeat and brussels sprouts
    Crabmeat stuffing
    1 can crabmeat, but you can use that imitation stuff too
    bread crumbs
    3 tbsps melted butter
    splash of white wine
    salt and pepper to taste with a dash of garlic powder
    Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and lay the salmon out on a lined sheet pan lightly oiled.
    Spoon the mixture onto the fish and let it rest on top. I don’t roll it up only because I don’t like to eat the skin, but that would be up to you.
    Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes
    And there you have it. Serve with your favorite brussels sprouts and more wine.

  3. I often think I should rustle up one of my mom’s recipes to contribute here, but then if someone asked me a question, I’d have to ask you the answer!

    • Hahaha that’s OK just say it is a recipe your mom made and you wanted to share it. If it doesn’t look right I won’t approve it until we figure it out. Your mom was an excellent cook and I would love to see some of her recipes.

      • OK, what did I forget on the raisin oatmeal cookies, the baking time I think. Details, details. 🙂 I will find one and type it up to submit it. I was thinking of something funny and don’t know if I ever mentioned it to you. When we got a microwave at work, before we got one at home, I’d take leftovers for my lunch and heat it up in the kitchen. The crustless quiche was a big draw – people running to the kitchen to see what the smell was … spinach, egg, cheese and Durkee onion rings. So staff (and attorneys) wanted the recipe. There were a few other things I brought in, but that sticks in my mind.

      • Oh how funny, it must be delicious if it smells good. When I first started posting I did it on a FB page for friends and family. One of my friends posted how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and she was serious. Lol

      • Oh that is funny! And that reminds me of a girl I used to work with. For some reason the topic in the lunchroom was Spaghettios and she said “my favorite sandwich in the world is a Spaghettio sandwich.” No you and I often mention leftovers on a sandwich … but how do you eat a Spaghettio sandwich?

      • OMG This is so funny. The only way I will eat spaghetti O’s is with buttered bread. I take a spoonful of hot spaghetti O’s, put it on the buttered bread and wait a few seconds so the butter just starts to melt. SO good!

      • Well yes, OMG – that is funny because I thought this co-worker was unique doing that and wondered why she would pick them to make a sandwich with. Now I feel I must try it! My grandmother used to say that they had ketchup and applebutter sandwiches that they took to school as they had 9 kids in the family, so that’s what they took. You’d go thru a whole loaf of bread every day with that many kids!
