    Faye - Are you going to post a reminder or send reminder emails about the coupon/cookie swap - food drive - coupons for troops at some point this week? Thanks

    Aaaahhhhh Ascherer thanks for the cookie swap reminder. We have been here in buffalo for what feels like forever, cant wait to get back to NC!!! Unfortunately I do not have any coupons!!! I'll skip the coupon swap part but ill definitely participate in the cookie swap part :) cant wait to see everyone!!!

    No meal plan, yet, for this week or dinner plans for tonight. We just got back into town. I will probably wait until I see the Wednesday sales before I make any plans. It was fun to be with family over the Holidays but it is so nice to get back home.

    During the trip, I got 6+ weeks worth of coupons clipped in preparation for the coupon/cookie swap this Saturday. Plus, Momma really liked the cookie I plan to bring to the swap. It is wonderful to get the seal of approval from your Momma on a new recipe. My Aunt even asked for the recipe.

    Tonight is hot dogs, to DW's delight, and homemade lentil soup for me which I've been craving forever. An easy meal after a long day out and about.

    Sure wish we had some lemon meringue pie left! :)

    twinredheads - I hope it went well. It really is a big undertaking to host a big family Thanksgiving. It was wonderful to go to my aunt's house for the holiday, but I did miss the leftover dressing and pumpkin pie!

    Crockpot turkey chili. Had family for Thanksgiving for the first time ever and STILL have mega leftovers!
