    So no chicken tonight. I forgot I bought eggplant, so I'm having eggplant parm, and DW is going to have the leftover spaghetti and meatballs. It's not often I'm willing to cook separate meals, but every once in a while it's worth it.

    Meredith, your veggie quesadillas sound really good!

    I'm having veggie quesadillas tonight since I'm on my own for supper. We always have tortillas and butter on hand. The cheese is from the recent B2G3 sale at HT. I'll add whatever veggies we have in the fridge... probably onions, peppers, mushrooms, olives and corn. A little leftover rice on the side and I'll be set.

    homemade chili and salad.

    I think tonight we're having chicken too. Ideally, it will be cooked on the grill if it doesn't rain. If I were smart, I'd do it now while the sun is out! :p If it's grilled, it will probably end up in a Caesar salad. Otherwise it will be added to broccoli, water chestnuts, and scallions in my Asian inspired BBQ sauce concoction over rice.

    All of your menus sound delicious! Tonight we're having chicken salads with the leftover rotisserie chicken from yesterday.

    Have some ground pork, so going to do a meat sauce, add in some green beans and put over brown rice.
