    I've slowly realized that meat substitute products (MSF, etc) aren't really good for you...I don't know what we're going to eat since we're mostly vegetarians (if we do eat meat it's grass fed or Smart Chicken and $$$$ !) Making my own veggie burgers is going to take a lot of work. Easy ideas?

    I like the what's for dinner idea!

    Diane, I figured. :) I may try to ask the next time I'm in CVS as to when they markdown inventory. Course I'm sure that differs as well...go figure. :)

    ....I should have clarified that I was referring to CVS in my previous post. Sorry about any confusion! :)

    Im with smolder lol rotating rice, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese....sorta getting old lol I would love to see what everyone else does on a daily basis

    Smolder, LOL, about the third night of baked potatoes or noodles. Boy, have I been there, done that! Have I told y'all about the eight bags of noodles I bought recently -- for a ridiculously great price, of course ;) And as soon as we get our first What's For Dinner post, I'll add my recipe for junk food noodles, aka a reincarnation of the old Noodles Romanoff of the 60's.

    Packy - I don't know if there's any rhyme or reason to what items they mark down (and it seems to differ from store to store), but I would love to know if there's a particular day of the week that the stores make these markdowns - my luck, I'm normally there after all the items that have been marked down have already been wiped out, but one time I truly lucked out and must have arrived shortly after they did their markdowns, because not only was there plenty of stock on the marked down items, but I had coupons for all everything I got as well - I couldn't believe the deals I got!! (Since I can't remember what day of the week this all happened, it hasn't happened again for me since, LOL.)

    I agree. I really like the "What's for dinner?" thread idea. Sometimes we all need a little bit of last minute inspiration. Especially when you are asking yourself "what can I do with this chicken?" or find yourself having a baked potato or buttered noodles as your side dish for the 3rd night in a row...

    Glad you all like the idea! Sometimes I coupon an item that is a good deal but not sure how to incorporate it into a meal. Figured that since most of us buy the same couponed items that we can help each other make sure we are getting the most out of them and inspire each other with new ideas. There is nothing worse then it being 4pm and not knowing what I will make for dinner when I get off work. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!

    I love the idea of the "What are you making for dinner tonight?" thread. Maybe I can get some new recipes for those nights when I have no idea of what to make!
