    Meredith88, I promised I would post my pizza dough recipe. Give me another day or two and I will get it typed up. Things have been a little busy since I got back.

    Faye, the menu for every dinner you posted souds delicious. There wasn't one that I didn't think, "oh yum"! What time are you serving? ;) I'll bring cheesecake! lol

    Thanks for clearing up the turkey shoot mystery. I had no clue.

    Dinner, well... I think it's going to be very simple and bland as DW is really struggling with some side effects from her meds today. Either a dutch baby or scrambled eggs and toast. The original plan was to bake an eye round roast with a salt and pepper crust, mashed potatoes, gravy, and green beans. The beef and green beans are from the sale at Lowes.

    Hubby gets to pick from Fayes long list of Veterans Day freebies for dinner tonight.

    Bought a few of the NY Strips on sale at HT and will pan fry in rosemary (also on sale) infused olive oil. Sautéed spinach on the side, and I think I will try the free Simply Potatoes Steakhouse for my DH.

    Taking my husband out to either Applebee's or Olive Garden for Veteran's Day tonight.

    Tonight I will be experimenting for our supper. I am going to use the rest of the chicken and vegetables that I cooked in the crockpot last week and throw them back in the crockpot with rice, chicken broth and more spices and hopefully it will turn into a nice chicken and rice soup! We'll see!

    And Faye, I'm jealous of your $4 turkey. My sister and her boyfriend did the turkey shoot at the fair but neither won. Last year my brother gave me the turkey he won at the turkey shoot at the fair so it was free :) So this might be the first year I actually have to buy a turkey.

    You are going to love this turkey deal we got! We now have our 12 lb turkey for Thanksgiving...for $4.00! My husband won it in a turkey shoot this weekend. It's a name brand 12 lb turkey so it cost us 33 cents per lb! Can't beat that price. Luckily, it only took him one shot on the board to win it, so only $4.

    If he wins another one this weekend, it will go to the turkey drive at our religious organization. Gotta love that price!

    For those unfamiliar with a turkey shoot - you do not shoot actual turkeys. :-) You shoot at a target and the one who is closest to the bulls-eye out of the 12 people competing in the round, wins a frozen turkey. They are usually held at churches in the fall as a fundraiser.
