brainstorming: what to make for dinner?

I can’t decide what to make for dinner.

I’d like to go to Subway, but we DO have food here too….

I have potatoes, sweet potatoes, canned beans (of different varieties), canned corn, frozen veggies (also different varieties), coconut milk, refried beans, frozen veggie burgers, milk, cheese, pancake mix, fresh veggies, rice, oatmeal, spaghetti noodles. I have some spaghetti sauce too. And flour, sugar, butter, etc.

There are several options there, of course. The question is… what do I FEEL like making? Not really any of it. I’d rather go to Subway, like I said. But… I could do potatoes and chili, maybe with eggs and biscuits. Or with green beans, but that’s awfully close to what we had last night. I have a few Indian recipes that I want to try, but I’m feeling a little lazy for that. I don’t have any mozzarella or I might consider making pizza.

I guess I could do burritos, but they’re not as warm as I want dinner to be. Quesadillas are good and would be warm… but I don’t know. I’m not feeling Mexican so much. I could do a stir-fry. I could make a coconut curry with rice. I could make pancakes. And oatmeal. I could make spaghetti. I could do veggie burgers. I could probably even make a veggie pot pie or a veggie shepherd’s pie…both of which sound delicious but also time-consuming.

A soup would be nice. Maybe I’ll look up some recipes for soup. And get Matt to agree to Subway too. Soup and sandwich, right? Hmmmmm.
