    ascherer - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I hope you had a wonderful dinner! I have never been there. Sounds like you had a big group singing Happy Birthday to you tonight!

    Tonight we (me, DH, & 11 of his family) are going out for my Birthday dinner at Tony's Oyster Bar. We have a Groupon that expires tomorrow.

    I will figure dinners for the rest of the week tomorrow. I have to start cooking again now that our big event is over.

    barbiedoll1967 - I bought the whole wheat Pepperidge Farm cinnamon raisin swirl bread at HT super doubles using a $1 coupon I printed a while ago. The sale price is $3 so the total was only $1 per loaf after coupon! It will be so good as french toast!

    Not sure what tonight is going to be for me. I have some leftover ravioli and leftover spaghetti.

    Faye the omelets sound really good as well as the french toast and fruit salad.

    ybaverage2003 - I love a good burger and the rosemary oven baked potatoes sound really good.

    Meatless Monday: Spinach, cheese and mushroom omelets, French toast, fruit salad.

    ybaverage2003 - those rosemary oven baked potatoes sound really good on a chilly night. Happy Monday to you as well!

    I was craving a good homemade burger over the weekend, so bought everything for that for tonight. Will make rosemary oven baked potatoes and have salad to go alongside. Happy Monday all !!
