Maybe some of my family’s favorite meals will inspire you to make something different for your dinner tonight. I know exactly how you feel when it comes time to make dinner, and you don’t have a clue what to make! The same meals all the time can get pretty boring after a short period of time. Here are some of our family’s favorites:

Pasta is something we always eat at my house in many different ways. Baked spaghetti, lasagna, stuffed shells, and ravioli are four of our favorite Italian pasta dishes. Chicken alfredo or chicken parmesan are two fancy dishes that we make every now and then too. Salad and bread sticks or garlic bread make the perfect side dishes for a complete Italian feast. Another good pasta dish is baked macaroni and cheese. You can grill hamburgers or hot dogs to go along with the pasta and maybe steam some fresh vegetables too.

Ground beef is another great ingredient that gets us out of a meal funk every now and then. Barbecue is one of our staple dishes. It goes great with roasted potatoes, pasta, or vegetables. Toasted bread serves as a great change to a standard roll too. We make homemade hamburger helper every now and then too when we have nothing else to prepare. Tacos are another ground beef favorite in our house. Get creative with your toppings for a fun dinner. Buttered corn is a great side for tacos. Refried beans would be good as well. Homemade meatballs and meatloaf are two other great meals. I like to stuff each one with lots of cheese for a change to the normal recipes. Baked potatoes are great with either one of those meals.

My final suggestion would be to get out your grill for dinner. Hamburgers and hot dogs are always good, especially throughout the summer. Serve standard barbecue side dishes like baked beans, pasta/potato salad, and chips/dip. It’s simple yet very good. You could grill marinated pork or chicken pieces as well. Even fish is great prepared on the grill. Grilled vegetables or fruit serve as great side dishes too. We even like to grill fresh sausage patties for dinner. The possibilities are really endless!

Maria asks…

Please help? FAST! Easy 10 points?

I was trying to drive on my MacBook on the highway while I saw a toaster running on paper which was made by the project I made in Grade 13! So then I was running away from the hungry creeper which nearly exploded with clay from the burning garden houses of the sky! I got scared, so I sprinted to the end and kindled, and rapidly ran away from the Enderdragon!

I do not have sufficient paint to continue working on the labels for my new door, so the window is not perfectly circular. What is the radius for the door so that the ‘J” button on my MacBook would run properly applications from the Dinosaur age?

Thanks in advance!
I tried that but I only have 1 USB port! Should I purchase a purple sparkle marker to help ease the pain from the cylindrical muffler?

Daniel asks…

signs i have worms in my garden?

my garden really isn’t kept nicely i mean only time it gets water is when it actually rains other then that it dries up because of the heat.

now it isn’t my garden to begin with it’s my grandpa’s but i recently got into gardening so im trying to maintain the garden and clean it out .

my compost pile is pretty big because of the fact we have a lot of dead leaves blowing into our garage thats not even from out house this happens everyday and we rake and pile it up into compost piles and let it decay over the years. anyways i want to start a vermicompost but the thing is i have no money to buy worms and they don’t really sell them here cheap. i wanted to go out and get some in my garden but i tried wetting the soil and putting some news paper down and wet that nothing. did this in 2 different spots both shaddy. left it out for an hour at least.

i dug a few holes to make sure their were not worms and their was nothing the only thing i found were millipedes.

how do i know my garden has worms any sure signs or some easy simple ways to even get them to surface out during the DAY TIME. i cannot go out at night their are all sorts of bugs here at night like huge moths and rats and roaches,etc..

any tips on sure signs that my garden has worms and how i can get a few like at least 5-10 easily during the day time in my dry @ss garden.

i want to breed them and start a worm compost system in the near future as i said we have a shet load of compost piles i just made a new one and their not breaking down fast enough plus i want to try vermicomposting just for fun.
i live in Hawaii it doesn’t get very cold here. i was planning on making an indoor vermicompost small scale then get more tubs.

i don’t think their are any worms in my garden no more because it has been neglected for years. i think i will just buy some in a few months

GardenersCardiff answers:

Worms live in the top 4-6 inches of soil. Just take a shovel, and dig. If you find worms, you have worms.

Also – you don’t say where you live, but vermicomposting worms (red wigglers and the like) are southern worms. If you live where there is winter, those worms will not survive in an outdoor compost pile. They’re for an indoor worm bin if you live in the north.
