    Tonight is leftovers from the family reunion yesterday. Other options for the week are:
    Ham and potatoes casserole with a veggie
    Spaghetti (I'll sneak some sliced squash into the meat sauce)
    Roast or Pork roast with some kind of sides
    Either Gourmet Buffet or I will figure something else out

    Tonight is going to be spaghetti carbonara (eggs, bacon, parm, garlic) with some broccoli mixed in.

    And in no order --
    Roast chicken ($0.89 HT sale a few weeks ago) sides TBD
    Chicken & corn chowder
    Homemade chex mix
    Baked cod and oven fries
    Something with kale - maybe shrimp scampi with rice with the kale mixed in so DW can't pick it out very easily.
