    Kathy S - I am so sorry you have been sick!! I hope the Dr can give you something to knock it out very soon. Thankfully, your family can fend for themselves. Take care of yourself!

    Yes we are all clear. Power came back at about 9 am was only out about three hours I consider us lucky. Leftovers were amazing as always :)

    Been sick, sick, very, very sick. So my dinner was oatmeal with canned apple pie filling in it. Family had leftovers. Don't know what the rest of week will be and don't care. Family is all over the age of 20 so they can fend for themselves. Going to the Dr. tomorrow and I can't wait. I just want to feel better.

    Tonight it's Meatless Monday breakfast for dinner with eggs, sauteed spinach and mushrooms, veggie sausage links and crescent rolls.

    coupon4me - that was funny about the meatless Monday! We do it a lot here so I think my people are used to it now....mostly. Your eggplant parm sounds great.

    Oh no, Raesmom! Did your power come back on yet?

    Potato, corn and ham chowder tonight-made a lot so there will be leftovers. I am thinking of putting the Jenn-o bake in bag turkey breast I go on sale last Thanksgiving with coupons with veggies for tomorrow night. The rest of the week is up in the air, Probably using up leftovers that are piling up in fridge. going for the no-spend week challenge.

    Crockpot turkey chili with sides of cornbread and green salad.

    Tonight - Sticky BBQ chicken and home made stuffing with leftover cabbage. Prepped everything for chicken and made stuffing last night. Just pop in the oven when I get home.

    Tomorrow - Marinated pork chops with rice and broccoli.

    Wednesday - Leftovers. This is my grocery day/ meal planning for the next week.

    It's meatless Monday (gaspppp says my DH) over here..eggplant parm with homemade sauce I made yesterday with some cherry tomatoes that were about to go and whole wheat pasta. Leftover burgers from last night will save DH...

    RAESMOM1612 - what did Baby Ziti think of the snow ??
    I HOPE your power in back on soon !

    DH is at work and may not return until late Tuesday or Wednesday night.
    I have not decided between chicken and sides or beef stew with veggies - both are leftovers so easy to heat and eat when I am ready.
    I have potato soup too - maybe for lunch with a turkey or hot roast beef sandwich .
