    Sounds like we need a page to post all of our "What I Did With My HT Chicken" meals! :-) I got two and one was oven roasted last night. The other will be going into matzoh ball soup this Friday!

    Faye, it is not much but might help a few people to go out for a night a little cheaper.

    Thanks ascherer!

    Sorry I am posting so late but things happen. DH had a meeting tonight and another one tomorrow.

    M: Ate out T: I am thinking ham, swiss, feta and veggie omelet W: I am sneak a homemade tuna casserole in before Lent starts mid-February TT: Hamburgers with all the veggies and tater tots F: whatever DH would like for me to cook for him.

    Faye: On a side note. You may want to checkout Abbey Road Tavern and Grills home page on Facebook. 919-481-4434 if you need to call. They have a $2 off entrees and $1 off appetizers special now. I can't find it on their webpage right now but I know you can always find it if you connect to the wireless network while you are on site.

    Have a great week everyone.

    Ummmm....I don't think I will eat anything with the word "special" in it ever again, jdouglas. :-)

    After all that, tofu won't phase you at all.

    Faye and nakabi, thanks for the invites, especially since I invited myself! LOL

    Faye, it is my lovely DW who would probably rather eat sticks than tofu. I've never had it, but am a WAY more adventurous eater than she is, and I've been thinking about trying it! You and I will have to have a conversation one of these days to discuss tofu 101 :)

    Did I ever tell you about some of what I ate as a kid? My Mom just had 'special' names. Like special tuna (smoked chubs), special bologna (tongue), special sausage (blood pudding), and special pork chops (veal chops with kidneys). A little tofu doesn't scare me! ;)

    We also got 4 chickens at HT this weekend-We froze #1, cooked & froze the meat from #2&#3 for casseroles, pot pie, etc, and we are having oven roasted chicken and root vegetables with #4 tonight,Rest of the week: Tues-Asian marinated talapia, brown rice & stir fry sesame cabbage, Wed-cheese burgers, sweet potato fries & broccoli, Thur-spicy chicken pasta and salad, Fri-home-made pizza. My family wishes I would fry the chicken but I don't fry- it never turns out right for me-I must get the oil too hot or not hot enough or something. The Cooking Light oven fried chicken is as close as we get at our house.

    I must agree with Packy. If I am going to eat fried chicken it has to with skin and bones. It is so good but I'm not one to fry chicken so I only get it on occasion.

    funny story. We're looking at houses and the two that we looked at this weekend all I could think about is "where am I going to put my freezer"...and "is this pantry big enough"....and "where am I going to put my overflow stockpile cabinet". Yep, true story.
