    Thanks for posting, Ashley. I am so sorry the new posting requirement is a hassle. I would love to go back to the previous posting system but that is sadly not an option at this time.

    Thanks for sharing your menu. Your fajitas sounds great!

    I think the commenting is now rather cumbersome. I've tried MULTIPLE times to comment and though I was logged into FB it still didn't give me the window to comment. I decided to try again this morning and it worked. I miss all the comments too. I am UNCW_Ash-didn't comment a lot but I loved reading everyone's meal plans. Last night we had honey mustard chicken in the crockpot with egg noodles and field peas. Tonight, not sure. We are going to the gym as a family after work so i'll be something easy. Wed-church dinner, Thur-Steak fajitas in the crock pot using sirloin on sale at HT, peppers and onions from Aldi and tortillas and cheese from HT BOGO sale.

    Hi Sharon, thanks for sharing your meal! Sounds tasty!

    And I totally agree about commenting. I encourage everyone to try to log on with your FB accounts because it is so easy to do. Unfortunately, I have received many e-mails (many, many, many e-mails) from folks who refuse to get a FB account, for various reasons.

    I miss the comments from others terribly and would love for things to get back to "normal" as well.

    Thanks for posting. :-)

    Faye, happened to see you this morning on WRAL, nice job!
    I'm just having salad, breaded chicken, and baked potato.
    By the way, I registered on facebook and now it just seems to come up that I can make a comment whenever I go to WRAL, so to me, once you do it, it's very easy to comment. I miss so much the people that used to comment here, it was a nice supportive community. Please come back :)
    If you sign up (and you can use a pet's name, any name at all, then you will also be able to print all those fabulous facebook coupons. And maybe get things back to normal here!
    I'm mothar1, an infrequent commenter.
