    Goodness these menus have my mouth watering!
    Happy birthday week, JDouglas12! May those wonderful meals-out only be bested by the good company.
    Travel blessings, Meredith88. Hope you find baby and mom both doing well!

    Since it's just the two of us for supper tonight, I'll fill a request for croque monsieur (thanks FL for marked-down ham slices, HT & Kroger for great cheese deals, and K for great coupon/Mega 4 deal on batard) and K for coupon on mesclun side. We'll taste-test the Bai Jamaican Blood Orange HT freebie in small spritzers. Reserved a few berries when making last night's strawberry biscuits for a compote topper tonight over butter pecan ice cream. Tomorrow makes use of remnants of Sunday's baked hens and cauliflower/carrot/radish crudites that will become chopped bbq chicken on buns with balsamic marinated veggie slaw, sides of rosemary roasted potatoes and a newly made bean salad with peach charlottes to finish.

    Wishing everyone a good start to a cooler week :)

    Meredith, congrats on the new nephew!

    GatorGirll, the price of flank steak is pitiful, isn't it? And skirt steak too -- it's one of my favorite cuts of steak and used to be super cheap. No more!

    Coupon4me, good afternoon :)

    We've had takeout the last two nights in a row. Unheard of for us. I enjoyed my break from cooking.

    Everyone has some seriously good menus here today! Birthday week, so our menu isn't totally frugal. Tonight is steak on the grill (thanks to the inspiration here) and salad. T: use or lose veggies - roasted tomatoes, peppers, Italian sausage with pasta. W: lobster at home or dinner out. TH: dinner out with friends, the rest of the week TBD.

    Tuesday: home made Chicken Pot pie
    Wednesday: breakfast for dinner
    Thursday: Shrimp scampi with Pasta
    Friday: out to eat with family

    Tonight we are having company over for dinner. Steaks on the grill with mashed potatoes and broccoli. We'll add Caesar salads if there's time and maybe fresh baked chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

    Tomorrow night is girls' night so I'll be eating dinner out with the girls and he will be fending for himself. I believe he said something about the last pizza in the freezer ;-)

    Wednesday we are hoping to sneak out of town for a day trip to meet our newest nephew born last week! If so then dinner will be on the road on the way back from the beach. If not then dinner will be Orange Chicken with stir fry vegetables and fried rice.

    Thursday night we will either have the Orange Chicken meal if it doesn't have Wed. or we will have Shepherd's Pie with baked apples.

    Friday night we are having Chicken Parmesan served over spaghetti with Caesar salads.

    Saturday we are having Cubed Steak with mashed potatoes and roasted green beans or brussel sprouts.

    Then we'll do it all over again :-)

    Tonight is flatbread pizza made with homemade BBQ sauce, ground pork, red onion, cheddar cheese & cilantro.

  • Gator Girll Sep 26, 2016

    Tonight is London Broil, mashed potatoes and green beans. When did flank steak get so expensive?

    Tonight it's Meatless Monday: Sauteed teriyaki tofu and veggies on saffron rice, veggie egg rolls

    coupon4me - Good morning to you, too! I love breakfast casserole for dinner, but I have never made the tater tots and country gravy version. It sounds like great comfort food!

    RaleighFoodBlogger - It feels like homemade bread and soup weather out there. Your dinner will be perfect!

  • RaleighFoodBlogger Sep 26, 2016

    Tonight I'm trying a Turkey Meatball, Barley and Veggie Soup and if I get motivated- homemade bread :)

  • coupon4me Sep 26, 2016

    Good morning! Wishing everyone a great start to the week.
    We will be having a breakfast casserole for dinner tonight. It was made with tator tots, country gravy, eggs, cheese and sausage. We'll have that with fruit - bananas, apples or mandarin oranges.
