    We ended up having leftover taco soup perfect for yesterday and todays weather.

    Tomorrow may be pork chops with mashed potatoes and veggies

    Wednesday will be dinner on the road as we are heading up for a long weekend to celebrate my bday in buffalo with the family!

    Thursday is the big day so DH and I will go out to eat at a fancy place back home since we will have more then enough volunteers for a sitter.

    Friday and Saturday I'm sure one of my sisters (if not all of them) will want to meet up to go out to eat.

    Sunday will be recovery day for me before we hit the road again Monday morning to get back to good ole NC :)

    enjoy the week everyone.

    I agree, barbiedoll1967. It's definitely a soup kind of day. And it was great to see you this weekend at the show!

    Good Monday morning everyone. I'm thinking some soup for supper tonight since it's yucky outside or perhaps a turkey hot dog.
