    ThomasG - that is such a wonderful way to honor Memorial Day and all that it means.

    Frugal20 - WOW! Great deal on the chicken!!

    Everybody's dinners sound great tonight. Thank you for sharing them (and your weekly menu, lindabates)!

    We had our BBQ dinner tonight at The Pit in Raleigh with my dad, who is a Navy vet. We talked about the person who replaced him in the helicopter medical unit he was in during Vietnam when my dad's time was up. Sadly, he died in a helicopter crash about 2 months after replacing my dad. When we went to DC, we found his name on the wall. It was very moving.

    This was my first visit to The Pit. I had the chopped bbq turkey with sides of slaw and sweet potato fries. We split the peanut butter pie & carrot cake between all of us. It was delicious and I have plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Their biscuits and honey butter are delicious as well! Needless to say, I will be serving some extra time on the elliptical at the gym tomorrow....

    Lemon herb chicken breast, roasted Brussels sprouts & carrots, mashed cauliflower, yeast rolls.

    Organic chicken breast was marked down at Food Lion yesterday, 1.2 pounds for $6.02. Had a $5 coupon (Perdue chicken). Over a pound of organic, brand name chicken for $1.02!!
