    Last night I made Grilled Chicken flatbread with bacon, grilled chicken, mushroom alfredo sauce and fresh mozzarella. We had a side of pasta salad. It was delicious.

    Coupons4Me - The salmon sounds terrific ! as do the potatoes and green beans !
    JDouglas13 - LOTS of Green Beans to appease the raging Princess ?? LOL
    I LOVE Fettucine Alfredo - I will have to try it soon with the prosciutto.
    I completely understand your salad withdrawal - sometimes I just devour raw veggies like it is candy ( I keep a dish of sliced cucumbers around all the time )
    LindaBates - The pork tenderloin sounds delicious - my DH would want a biscuit with a slice of the pork for his breakfast tomorrow !

    Tonight is - My DH is working 'til midnight so it is "what I want night" !
    I am fixing steak sliders ( using the slider size for portion control and to keep the carbs down ), baked steak fries (or sweet potato ) and salad ( my leaf lettuce is perfect right now - a home grown tomato and I would be in heaven LOL ) pineapple sorbet if I have time to make it otherwise just fresh fruit mix.

    Coupon4me, I am not fond of salmon, but that sounds so delicious, as does Faye's salad bar on Friday. Since DW got sick and has been banned from fresh produce, I have been in salad withdrawal.

    As we are settling into our new house things continue to be busy. Tonight, The Princess will spend her first night with us. Fingers crossed she doesn't destroy the place. She's going to be REALLY mad that she was boarded.

    Dinner... fettucine Alfredo with crispy prosvuitto9
