    Friday night we had a delicious beef tenderloin. I can't even remember the sides. Saturday night we had steak fajitas using the leftover tenderloin and produce from Aldi this week. Last night we had people over to our new house for the first time. We made a BBQ pork loin, twice baked baked potatoes, side salads and fresh watermelon from Aldi. Everything was delicious!

    I have no idea what we're having any night this week for dinner, but I did plan out both our lunches for the whole week so I'll consider that a victory for now :-)

    I'd be pretty happy going from house to house tonight eating your desserts! Chocolate fudge cake, plum pie and banana muffins sound like a great dinner to me! LOL

    Tonight I think we are having veggie burgers with avocado and salsa, pasta salad with veggies. May be eating with friends, but not sure yet.

    LOL ybaverage!! Enjoy your ziti!! Not sure what diner will be just yet but I purchased a bunch of produce at HT last night and planned to make a tomato, onion and cucumber salad for dinner too. I think I might do a big veggie salad with some shrimp in there and the family can have chicken something (TBD).

    Rae and I FINALLY made some banana nut muffins last night and they were really good. Yall know I don't eat the sweets that I make but these smelled so go I took a small bite.....very tasty!! Leftover muffins for dessert.
